Between your ex’s popping up, your phone glitching, losing your keys 1,000 times and your car breaking down…you’re probably ready for Mercury Retrograde to be over. I feel you.
But there are ways you can not just survive Mercury Retrograde, but actually grow and thrive.
It seems like every time Mercury is in retrograde, exes, old friends and people from your past start popping up all over the place. This makes sense if you look at the word “retrograde.” The prefix of retrograde, “re,” literally means to go back, to do again.
If you have unresolved issues or business with someone, Mercury’s retrograde can actually act as a positive force, bringing that person back into your life so you can achieve closure. If you use these awkward reunions to your advantage, you can move on to that new relationship or job with a clean slate. Instead of freaking out when people from the past pop up, take this opportunity to make sure you aren’t dragging baggage along with you to the next phase of your life.
Mercury’s retrograde is actually the perfect time for a trip — down memory lane. Especially to return to a place you’ve gone before, or reaching out to people from your past. Reconnect with old friends for a reunion, or go back and visit a place you love. Just be careful when making travel plans, because Mercury can create havoc with transportation!
Reflect on Yourself
As humans, we’re not perfect. We are messy, ever-changing creatures who constantly evolve. While Mercury is in retrograde, it is the perfect time to look at the themes and issues in your life that keep coming up. Take a good look in the mirror and evaluate your own unfinished emotional business. What is your life trying to tell you? Pay attention, because during this time those old issues are bound to come up.
Think about your home for a moment. Your home is the living embodiment of your past – the furniture you bought and pieces you loved enough to put in your personal space is everywhere. But this can also lead to a lot of clutter and dead energy, and might even keep you trapped in the past.
This is the perfect time to clear out the clutter in your life. If you really want to evolve yourself, clear out space where you spend the most time: Your home.

Time for another bottle of Mercury Retrograde. This retrograde is causing so many problems at work, and I even have the “non-believers” seeing the havoc. Many are telling me to tell Mercury to stop the shenanigans. I have made lotion for myself, but now it is time to make lotion for my assistant manager, who sat down on her chair, and it broke right out from under her, causing her a bunch of bodily pains.
I have to also make some lotion for my direct supervisor who can’t get our brand new machine working, as well as all our check-in hand held devices….things are so wonky at work, we all need some grounding.
Yes, I need another bottle of this great blend, my work life depends on it.
It’s been a tough July and am hoping things improve after retrograde. I bought a bottle of mercury and just fell in love. My kids love it too. I’ve just bought another bottle today. Thank you PT. I’m looking forward to making some DIYs with it.
Just got my mercury retrograde today! I can’t wait to try it!!! And love all these tips…Mercury is definitely in retrograde
Oh I really like these tips, thank you PT!
Need to get this! Great info!
Great blog. Great ideas with how to deal with this retrograde.
This one has been a doozie at work, with my home computer, with the popcorn my daughter burned last night.
This blog is a nice, positive, lift, for a heavy retrograde.
Still trying to like this oil but I love such posts like this.
Love this oil. We could use a gallon of it here in Pharmacy. We got a new computer system July 1st …and things have not been “smooth transition “. Lots of miscommunications…..I have inhaled in my pocket
In Love with Mercury Retrograde, another one Plant Therapy knocked out of the park. Going to get another bottle before it’s all gone.
Mercury retrogrades are rough. It took me many years to learn to deal with the retrograde when we have one. I used to be skeptical about the influences of the cosmos… but I have learned over the last few years, there is really something to it. I tread lightly. I hope everyone is surviving this retrograde so far.
I missed it the last time it was offered. I cannot wait! I will take all the help I can get!
