What is the main theme of this Mercury Retrograde for me?
Clouds – This was actually the card I expected to hop out, as it is very clear that the theme of this Mercury Rx for me is all about the current major depressive episode I am going through from its descent to (we can hope) the beginning of climbing back out again. I don’t have the expectation that I will be able to pull out of it so quickly, but this card gives me hope that my ascent might begin around the same time as the Mercury Rx comes to an end (around February 21st or there about, if I’m not mistaken).
How am I asked to honor my feelings and current Rx vibes?
Whip – It is important to remember that the self flagellation and dark inner narratives in your head are dangerous. Respect their power and work on coming out on top by acknowledging their existence. It is only through awareness that you can overcome their influences. Stay focused on where you want to go and determined to make your way there as you move through the mire of your depression and you will eventually come out the victor over these challenges.
What am I asked to reflect on throughout Mercury Retrograde?
Crossroads – Now is the time to reflect on your choices. Where do you want to go from here and how do you want to get there? You have choices, even now in the middle of your depression. Are you going to focus on doing the healthy things that will help you to climb out of the pit more quickly? Or sink into the mire and allow it to cradle you and eat away at your insides while it pretends to be comforting you? You need to keep these things in mind as you go through this struggle so that you can recover as smoothly and easily as possible once the clouded darkness begins to ease its grip.
