Timing gives you an edge. Doing something is great but doing the right thing at the right time is best. Currently, it’s Mercury retrograde and that means it’s a great time for doing some very specific things.
You’ve probably heard about Mercury going retrograde. It does this 3-4 times a year. You may have read some of my past blog posts about it or maybe you’ve read a book on it (here’s a great booklet on Mercury retrograde if you’re interested). You’ve probably heard about all the things to avoid doing on the retrograde such as optional dental work, signing contracts, or driving long distances when your car isn’t in the best working condition. But there are some great things to do on Mercury retrograde where the energy of the retrograde actually benefits the process.
One of the best uses of Mercury retrograde is to bring two people back together. The retrograde energy is all the “re” words (I checked and there are 1965 pages of words in this category on wiktionary) and one of those words is reunite. Mercury, which rules communication, and retrograde motion which brings things and people back, gives you the perfect opportunity to reunite with someone from the past.
So here’s what to do. First, write out on a small piece of paper what you would this meeting to be like and what you hope it will accomplish. Then place the paper where you charge your phone. Then reach out to the person just to say “hi” or “like” something they’ve done on Facebook. And that’s it. Let the Universe do the rest. By doing this during the retrograde you set the process in motion. Then be open to what happens. Things don’t always work out as we expect but there’s always some positive learning we can gain from every process. Let me know if you’re going to try this during this retrograde period.
