It's time to take your power back from Mercury and it's retrograde!
It's like anything.. what you focus on you get more of. What you expect, you get. What you expect manifests! Can you see that THIS is what makes Mercury retrograde so daunting? It's your beliefs and expectations not the planet's motion! Since you are likely focused on and aware of the retrograde, it's unlikely you can just forget about instantly so instead DECIDE that this period of Mercury (appearing to) move backwards will be one of ease, relaxation and good fortune for you!
Bottom Line: You are either a powerful creator of your life or you aren't. If you are.. YOU create your life experiences, not a very normal astrological occurrence.
