From September 27th to October 18th we are entering our last Mercury retrograde for 2021 and it’s all about relationships, and being peaceful and harmonious. It starts today, but in reality it’s been here all along. Peace has settled into my own corner of being, and I have shifted towards harmony, towards acceptance and towards letting go. I have reevaluated a few things and I have come to terms with a few things. Subject matters, big undertakings, letting go of dreams that were never mine, and even relationships and people. It’s done and yes I’m still standing and yes I am ok with it all. To not resist, to choose your battles, to accept and most of all to allow it all, without the need to justify and explain yourself is one of the greatest freedoms you will ever come to know, regardless of what painful injustice you’ve experienced.
This retrograde asks us to recalibrate our closest relationships and how we relate and communicate with each other. We are reviewing, rethinking, and we are revising our matters for improved balance. We are finding the fairness where it is required and we are lessening the grip of the past. It no longer has a hold on us. This is a time to expose what hasn’t worked for us. Here we decide whether we want to reshape and renew, or cut our ties and move on. How has our communication been! Productive, fair, respectful, efficient? Coming face to face with these questions is something we have seen all through the month of September as Armadillo Spirit suggests once more that we set Healthy Boundaries. We have first seen this message in April.
It seems that these cycles are repeating themselves now, coming to us in various ways and shapes as we peel away the layers and continue to shed what is no longer needed. Some intense conversations could be in store for us from the 5th-10th of October. We must be careful about what we say and most of all how we say it. Words can feel like a weapon when said in frustration and anger, something we might regret down the road. So a word of advice is to “Zip it” or at least think before you speak. At least consider how you would feel if your own sentence was told to you by someone else.
This is a time to continue our work, but it’s also a time to go inward and listen to our intuition. Don’t get so caught up on the goal that you are missing the process and the journey in getting there. And don’t get there by any and all means. The right way and unconditional love is the key, for its the only thing that will set us free in the end, with a peaceful mind.
