Several times a year it appears as though Mercury is moving backwards and even though this is an optical illusion, it influences us greatly.
As Mercury is the ruler of communication, travel, contracts, intellect, awareness, logic, reasoning and thinking, you may be experiencing some hiccups in those areas during this time.
The best thing to do is to take a break to reflect, re-evaluate and re-examine what you have done so far. Make sure that you have crossed all of the “t’s” and dotted all of the “I’s” and you will notice how well you have done.
Even though you can clearly see your progress and know deep down that everything is fine and exactly as it should be, you are still experiencing some worries. Take your time and really re-build your self-confidence.
It is rather hard for you to accept that you are a beloved child of the Universe. You are loved and treasured exactly as you are and this is making you feel uneasy.
Take this retrograde period to really go deep within to release old wounds and re-learn to trust yourself completely. You may also want to use this time to re-kindle and deepen your love of the Divine and all your angelic helpers and guides.
