To-Do Before The “Trickster Planet” Mercury Goes Direct on July 1st

Mercury flying

With all this hoopla about Mercury Retrograde, I’m sure you’re happy that it’s coming to an end in just a few short days.

The last 3 weeks have been a bad time to start new projects, sign contracts, begin diets, adopt new habits, or even kindle new relationships… but it has been a great time for introspection.

The trick is to be open to receiving the messages this “winged messenger” planet brings during it’s retro, whisper-in-your-ear phase, but WAIT until it’s heading forward before YOU take action.

Mercury goes direct on July 1st but before you go nuts cutting new deals or starting new flings, there are a few things you MUST do to make sure your loose ends are tied up, “i”s dotted, and “t”s crossed.

What loose ends do I want to tie up before the “Winged Messenger” goes direct on July 1st?

As you probably know already, Mercury appears to go backwards in the sky about 3 times annually. And when it does, this is the very best time for you to “RE”…


Traditionally, a Mercury retrograde is not the time to start new projects, sign contracts, begin diets, new habits or even relationships.

But what about when it stations direct? You want to be sure your loose ends are tied up, your contracts and agreements have been gone through with a fine-tooth comb, all your “i”s have been dotted, and all your “T”s crossed. Why is this so important?


Insights for New Directions

The down side of a tough Mercury retrograde period includes things like: mis-communication, buggy technology, missed appointments and frustrating gaffs. But the good side of it can include hints, nudges, insights or straight-up messages about a direction you should turn in or a new project you may want to take on.

The trick, of course, is to receive the message from the “winged messenger” during his retro, whisper-in-your-ear phase, but WAIT until he’s heading forward before YOU take action.

And that my friends, is why tying up loose ends now is your best bet for making the most of the months ahead.

What’s Your Vision Now?

So take a moment today (or 2 or 3) to give some thought to the incoming “messages” you may have received these past few weeks. What new ideas or inspirations have come to you? (Especially if they came to you out of frustrating, Mercury retrograde circumstances!) Write them down!

Then ask yourself:  “What do I need to do in order to ‘clear the deck’ and start taking action on this vision once Mercury goes direct?”

This is your clue to new, more inspired direction, and action!

Get clear on this and you’ll understand the true point and purpose of those thrice-annual retro-phases of that quick little planet we call Mercury
