THE MERCURY RETROGRADE is on its way.

You might be feeling some of its effects now. Everything might be feeling a little wonky.

WHAT IS IT?

It’s when the planet Mercury looks like it’s going backwards in its rotation. It’s an illusion. However, it does cause all kinds of snafus and delays.

WHY SHOULD I CARE?

Mercury rules communication, computers, the internet, technology travel and automobiles. That means that client relations may be frustrating, your travel plans may be changed or delayed, your computer may flip out, your website may go down or a myriad of other annoyances that will make you want to scream and pull your hair out.

HOW DO I KEEP SANE DURING A MERCURY RETROGRADE?

* Back up your computers and your websites

* Recognise that there will be miscommunications and stay open.

* Prepare for delays in travel. Pack appropriately.

* If stupidity happens don’t panic. It will right itself if you let it.

* Don’t make any large purchases. You might regret it later.

* Don’t sign major contracts. The fine print may haunt you later.

* Don’t have repairs done on anything electric or your car.

WHAT SHOULD I FOCUS ON DURING THE RETROGRADE

* Follow up with potential clients to see if they are ready to work with you.

* Repackage older courses. Give them an uplift.

* Rewrite your website copy or sales page.

* Finish that book.

* Close out old programs that you have outgrown.

* Let go of your pain-in-the-butt clients.

* Delete courses and pdfs that you aren’t going to implement.

* Restructure your business.

* Take more days off.

* Incorporate more self-care into your schedule.

* Journal through the annoying times.

No matter what try to stay open and optimistic. It’s only a few weeks and the more you relax into the retrograde the easier it will be. And with all things: this too shall pass.
