Mercury Retrograde Is Doing It’s Deep Dive To Your Core Issues Once Again!

Mercury retrograde brings up your core issues and tests your patience on what your ego wants and how fast it can get it.  I watch cycles in people, how the moon affects the emotional body and state of inner balance of a person, the inner and outer planets and how they affect overall response patterns deeply embedded into the subconscious of individuals and most of all, how people respond during these extraordinary times when faced with large planetary configurations that will always bring up the shadow side to release or let in some special insight to move forward.

I said to a client yesterday, “Your not communicating with the world outside of you because your not communicating with the world inside of you!” He had come to me because of a lack of social engagement, feeling depressed and lonely. What we realized during our Soul Therapy Sessions was that he was all in his head, caught up with the imagined world and not in the physical body that asks for action to manifest ones goals and desires. There are many factors that lead up to this experience but most of all the environment in which one put themselves into.

Mercury retrograde will bring up your deepest core issues and it will play games with you that you feel are the best decisions to be made but they are fed by the shadow to continue to keep you sheltered and playing small. I’d like for you to begin watching your patterns, your cycles and your internal conversations when mercury goes retrograde so that you can be aware and outsmart your ego and deep residing fears. What happens is that your core issues come up for review each time until you clearly recognize what mercury is teaching you about the situation.

I have been doing this for over three decades, my thirst to understand how the human condition compels me to travel around the world and seek it’s substance and depth of why and how humanity is so powerfully driven by deeply imprinted core issues that keep you tied to your past unhealed spaces and places throughout your soul’s journey’s. Always asking for your spirit to be liberated so your human experience can be one of service is the work of mercury retrograde, but when so much of humanity is caught in the drama and ego mind of the unhealed expression of their core issues then mercury retrograde does not become the fun ride it is intended for.

Mercury retrograde offers you the opportunity to open up, heal lifetimes and clearly understand the root cause of your current experiences that make you feel uneasy, uncomfortable, regretful and outright fearful! Three times a year for three weeks you are given, handed by the celestial realms, the opportunity to sit back, take stock, re-frame your life and ideas about what is driving you. If you are seeking success and are not attaining it, in the chosen area you desire success in, then you can recognize why during a mercury retrograde to heal the block once and for all so you CAN attain the success you desire. Most people cower at this point and retreat into their shell wondering what is wrong with them, why have they not achieved the success they want (in any area of life) and their mind will conjure up situations that will support the reasons why, taking them deeper into their hiding place.

For three weeks you get to look deeper at your current situation and why you are not fulfilling or living at your optimum point. You can uncover the reasons why and transform your consciousness during this time to create an equality in relationship to your internal and external worlds. You will be able to access information and wisdom from within yourself when you are aware of the qualities of mercury retrograde and not the symptoms that it produces.

There is a deep and profound metamorphosis that can transpire when you are listening to the gifts of this retrograde, what is your truth right now, how may mercury serve your greatest purpose and what is not serving you anymore will be in direct reflection when you listen with your heart and not your head during a mercury retrograde.

Personally, it is the most creative introspective time of the year for me, I honor this time to reach deep within myself and harness the truth of my world, what I am doing, how I am doing it, who I am doing it with and what needs to change. Mercury brings this change to light. I listen to the silly little mind that speaks of it’s untruths, as it’s showing up from the past, and integrate it into my heart and from here I gather the wisdom of what is my truth, not my ego desires. The greatest lesson I have learned from mercury retrogrades is that it’s a cycle in the year that I truly love and open myself up fully to my creative genius to explore, manifest, create in peace and quiet and to perform at my maximum capacity, it is when my greatest work is done and then brought out into the world.

Mercury Retrograde Facts: 

– Mercury retrograde asks me to sleep no more than 4 hours a night as I’m at my creative peak.

– I speak with my Elders at this time and ask to sit in Council to know what is the best course of action for me to take during this time. What I create and do now is manifested in three months time for my clients and the planet and then I set it free to be consumed by the masses.

– I release at this time old wounds and stories that do not serve me in the present moment.

– I get very clear on my relationship with Source/Creation/Universe/God/Goddess and ask in humbleness what is it that I am to do as Spirit in body for her, then I receive my blueprint of what service I can do or provide to humanity that will enable others to experience freedom. I get to it.

– I receive new Spiritual templates to work on and with.  For my clients and people who are currently working with me in my programs, they receive clarity on their own gifts and also see their limiting expression and what can be released at this time to open up to the greater heart and integrity of Self. It’s an exchange in partnership while working with me, clarity comes in waves and my clients get the same inner experience, as it relates to their own current situation.

– My greatest inspiration comes through during mercury retrograde.

– I build and re-brand a website at this time as it allows me to fully express my vibration and inspiration that is very pure to speak through me what will attract other individuals around the planet to this same quality of vibration and message that relates to their situation or desired future. 

– I am at my sexual peak at mercury retrograde. I harness this energy with deep breathing techniques that I have created and used for over two decades now. It opens up my higher perceptional awareness to merge into the great divine essence of Gaia, our Earth.  When I connect throughout her membranes, what I call her energy pathways of ancient knowledge, also known as her blood lines and veins through out the Earth, I shift in vibration to merge into her living awareness and bring that wisdom into my creations.  

– I get insight into my future during mercury retrograde.

– I organize all incomplete projects and materials that were left during the last mercury retrograde.

– I love myself deeply throughout mercury retrograde as I am aware that I am teaching myself my greatest lessons during this cycle.

What are you greatest fears driving you during mercury retrograde? Is it money, communication, intimate relationships, ego, judgmental thoughts to self and others, dependency upon others, selfish claims and demands, liberating thoughts that are freeing, insightful ideals and imagery, creative experiences, shut down emotions, feeling isolated and scared, not feeling worthy of love and self respect, commitment issues, self awareness. There are so many different types of expressions that mercury can bring up for you to experience – you perceive them as positive or negative, it’s your choice and it can be changed at any point.

Either way mercury retrograde is the Soul’s ability to heal and balance out situations, emotions, thoughts, deeds that are unhealthy for you or that limit you in perception and interpretation. When you perceive the world through your ego- you will experience the negative effects of these retrograde cycles that happen three times a year, or you can feel and experience the teachings that are showing up through the illusion of this trickster, mercury.

Mercury is known to heal souls and open one up to their multi-dimensional awareness as he incorporates communication, artistry, personal expression and conjures up the deep murky waters within to liberate and free humanity from the shackles of pain and illusion created by the ego and unhealed wounds from the past.There is great wisdom in these unhealed wounds and stories, the gift here is to experience them as such and then integrate the new awareness of what the issue is teaching you about your soul evolution.

  1. Skye,

    This was by far the best explanation for Mercury in Retrograde then anything I have ever received. I love how you really outline how to harness the energy that Mercury provides during this time for your greater good and how the world benefits from your creative drive and introspection during this time. I am so excited because I have noticed for me at this time a going inward and seeing how old insecure thoughts are creeping in but this time I’m saying “thank you for showing me how far I have come, I’m releasing you because that thought doesn’t serve me any longer. I am in creative mode myself as I am getting ready to launch my services and new 8 Week program. I super excited for my future and the new life of service I am claiming. This time is about making that transition and I’m soooo excited about it. Thank you for being my guide and my coach. I love that I have the privilege of being connected to you.

    Thank you for this very powerful article.

  2. Your welcome Carolyn! I have watched these cycles in myself and with clients also so I can understand deeper what the recurring issues are so when they show up, they can be eliminated and clarified immediately. Making sense out of patterns and cyclic behaviors is one way of understanding oneself.

  3. Skye;
    thank-you for this article.I have a much better understanding of what Mercury retrograde is,in the positive and the negative and how to work with this.I am feeling the effects of this very much this week and was struggling to over come the old patterns.Thanks to Mercury and your patience I am seeing myself differently.I woke up this morning feeling the divine beauty in all of this.Thanks of holding space for me and nudging me gently.This article gives clarity to what I have been feeling and much needed light.I will now be able to use these times in a more positive way.
    Blessings and much gratitude.
    Marsha 🙂

  4. Welcome Marsha, with everything that happens in our inner world, there is an relationship outside in our sphere that has an energetic influence, seen or unseen. Glad it has helped you.

  5. Skye, what an empowering description of the influence of Mercury retrograde. Apparently, I have been using it well this round. Less sleep, much soul searching and some reconciliation, too. I don’t keep track but often pick up on the transit at some point, as it I detect the chaos. After reading your post I looked up the dates, wondering if we were in it yet. Usually, I fear it. I hoped I’d not missed the opportunity. Hooray, I haven’t!

  6. Good on you Joan! Grateful that you found it empowering, appreciated.

  7. So that’s why I’ve only been sleeping 4 hrs per night! I’ve always dreaded Mercury retrograde… but after reading your article I feel that I’m now ready to embrace it. Thanks a lot!

  8. Skye,
    It’s with relief I read your words to find a sister on a similar path to my own, though further along it seems. You have so clearly organised and communicated what goes on during Mercury Retro and how to best utilise this energy, which is beautiful. Thank you.
    I found it very intense. It reignited the redisign of my website and business plan and journey for this up coming year. With awareness I felt and acknowledged a wound at my core that feels ancient and familial, which comes up annually at this time. This year it has been easier than last, yet it is still there. So within the chaos of life (and there is plenty of chaos at the moment) I find the inner peace of stillness which grants me courage to take risks and keep moving forward.
    I appreciate the grounding of your wisdom and hope the process I am in continues to heal all that is me and grants even more clarity and vision forward.

  9. Avi,
    When we experience the core of our wounds, we can choose the lessons inherent within them to equalize and balance out the emotions, while expressing gratitude. It is in the choice of reclaiming ones power in the weakness of the lesson that your energetic lineage will heal.
    I look forward to meeting you one day.
    Blessings Sister,

  10. Kathy,
    Your mind is most likely over active and instead of shutting it off, use it!!! Get out your creative self and manifest!

  11. I totally agree Deborah. As a professional Astrologer it is interesting to hear your take on Mercury Retrograde. I always advise all of my clients in my blog writings and in person, that Mercury Retrograde, who’s symbol is Rx like a prescription-is really Good Medicine.
    Mercury Retrograde’s are a great time to do all the RE-things,Receive, relax, review, renew, regenerate.
    It is the Feminine time of Receptivity for consciousness, the mind, most of all. We live in a always pushing forwards too masculine mental energy. It is very positive to go within.
    The cosmos is always in divine order. If you were born during a Mercury Retrograde it is really your time. Just don’t initiate new things.

  12. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on past lives. Regards
