Mercury Retrograde, Spring Cleaning For Your Relationships



by Jessica Shepherd April 16, 2010 08:31 PM EST

Spring is the time of year when nature boldly reveals a new blossom, and likewise encourages new growth in us. Yet Mercury goes retrograde from April 17- May 11, so before we step into full blown spring we clearly need to step back and mentally review where we've been & where it is we're headed. This applies to any area of life Mercury transits in our chart. However if you're wanting a fresh start in relationship:

Mercury retrograde is classically not a great time to start new relationships. BUT it's most excellent for gathering relationship research. One magical suggestion is to look around: to notice the people we're surrounding our self with and ask who it is we're having fun with. Those are the people to hang out with, more. Mercury also charges in-between states; in between love and like, in or out of a relationship, in between decisions. During this time we just may not be sure, so here's my advice: go ahead and settle in. Get comfortable with being confused! Confusion is divine for Mercury because it's during those times we're most uncertain that we're actually more open to new input, ideas and people, than not.

Finally, actually do some spring cleaning. Eliminate clutter to make way for the new. I'm not just trying to sound like your stepmother (though my kids are getting this piece of advice, too!). Spring is most excellent for elimination because elimination goes hand in hand with NEW LIFE. It's a spiritual law of manifestation: to receive new things, people, ideas and experiences into our life, we need to eliminate clutter, chaos and confusion. Otherwise, how will Cupid find us? Be it paperwork, mental negativity, or ex-boyfriends hanging around, dead energy is not simpatico with life-giving energy.

Try this affirmation while you're cleaning up your living space: As I eliminate mental, emotional and physical clutter from my life, I AM freed up to experience beautiful new inspirations from all new perspectives!
