Do you feel like hiding away? Are people making you plant your face in your palm? Tired of all the failing products, services and so-called leaders and experts?
Let me tell you. I’ve spent hours online with Apple this last week running diagnostics, first aid, and troubleshooting my new laptop. I maintain a smile even though the person on the other side of the screen can’t see me, so I can keep an amiable attitude.
Apple even replaced the entire logic board on my laptop. But it still keeps crashing, and now the hard drive is demolished.
I’ve never experienced such a blatant Mercury retrograde. That smile was a challenge to maintain! And I had to get assertive. But the situation was so extreme, all I could do was laugh.
Having a lot of Martian energy in my natal chart, I get impatient with slow thinkers and slow progress. If someone or something isn’t up to par, I tend to throw in the whole towel, walk away, and let things fall apart.
But the message today is to stay in the game. Limitations and hardship are part of life. And we need other people. We have a responsibility to contribute our best to the world, while maintaining our personal standards and boundaries.
“When you hate the world, you’re looking too much outside self.” – Magnetic Mama
Self-love is a common theme lately, especially with these retrogrades. We’re all trying to get back to, and stand up for our True Self, and rightfully so. We can’t experience genuine relationships, unless we too are genuine.
“Don’t worry if other people like or understand you, focus on liking and understanding yourself.” – La Luna Sangre
When you know yourself, you know who you best connect with, and who brings you pain.
“Knowing the difference between who to cut off and who to be patient with—is everything.” – Lalah Delia
But then we need a community in which to express our true self.
The impulse for escapism is strong today. As Venus stations direct while squaring Saturn, know that it’s important to maintain your standards, as well as work with those you trust through ups and downs, even if there’s no solution in sight. This is how we accomplish our best life; it’s also how we enjoy life together with loved ones and a community.
Go through the rough times together. Then celebrate together too.
