Hot on the heels of Venus retrograde ending yesterday, today we get the start of a new Mercury retrograde cycle. This is what it means for you. Mercury will be going backwards in Sagittarius. That means for you, he’ll be affecting…
Your 12th House Of Secrets. On the one hand, this Mercury reverse cycle could well see you battling with the question re if you’re going to honest with someone about what you really want and what you really feel. If you’re being pressured to reveal your hand but you’re not ready, don’t yeild to the pressure. If there’s something you know for 100% sure you want to keep secret, that should be easy enough – for now. If you’re involved in some kind of deception though, take care. What you can keep a lid on now may not (will not) stay hidden forever. Far better to come clean and prepare yourself for when the secret is revealed. The other main possible manifestation of this cycle is that you will be asked by the Universe (asked – or required) to have a look at something which scares the pants off you. Face a fear – and see if that doesn’t make it evaporate. Perhaps you are about to have a classic AHA! breakthrough as you face up to one hidden fear, or ‘driving force’ behaviour, which trips you up again and again – you probably know the one I mean. That thing you do to shoot yourself in the foot over and over. Stop it, stop it now! PS If you want to take some time out and even go on some kind of retreat now, the Universe totally supports you in that.
