How to Survive Mecury Retrograde- A Practical Guide

mercury retrograde womens empowerment Apr 11, 2024

Hey there, cosmic warriors! It's been a while since I last wrote a blog post, but I couldn't stay silent about the powerful retrograde energy swirling around us this month.

Picture this: a cosmic cocktail of solar eclipses, portal openings, and enough planetary shenanigans to make even the staunchest skeptic raise an eyebrow. Buckle up, because we're about to embark on a wild cosmic journey into the unknown this month.

So, what's all the fuss about? Let me break it down for you. According to the April 2024 energy forecast, we're in for a celestial spectacle like no other. We had a solar eclipse on April 8th, serving up a hefty dose of opportunities for clarity and guidance amidst the cosmic chaos.

And with Mercury stationing retrograde on April 1st and Venus shimmying into Aries on April 4th, it's safe to say that April is shaping up to be a month that won't be shy of a little (or a lot of) cosmic drama, sudden plot twists, and enough energy shifts to make your head spin.

But fear not, my fellow cosmic adventurers, amidst the chaos lies an invitation: an invitation to embrace the art of divine surrender.

Yuuuup, you heard me right. In the midst of any retrograde rollercoaster, we are always being called to surrender our need for control Our partner astrologer Danie Muniz speaks more to this in this month's energy forecast.

We are being asked to release our grip on life and to practice radical acceptance around our reality. For some of us doing this will feel a lot more risky and scarier than others. We have to be willing to trust in the cosmic dance unfolding before us.

Here's how this personally unfolded for me this month. Right on time with this week's eclipse there was a sudden shift that required me to choose between the possibility of being homeless or standing firm in my worth and inner knowing. Terrified and afraid, want to guess what I chose?

The answer, as shocking as it was even was for me DIVINE SURRENDER. Ugly cry and all, it went something like this:

"I don't know what you want from me God or what it is I'm meant to learn from this, but if this is what needs to happen in order for me to be in mission, I ACCEPT IT! I surrender it all. My home, my health, my relationship. Whatever it takes, I trust you have a divine plan that's better than my own."

And then, I made some touch choices and took aligned action. The best part? In having the courage to do so, in less than 48 hours my prayers were answered and some of the seeds for lasting transformation were planted.

Positive changes that could not have been possible if I continued to force awareness, acknowledgement or change instead of surrendering to whatever was necessary for it. 

This is what divine surrender looks like in action. It starts with repairing your relationship with God and self first.

I'm sure there will be other moments in my life, even this month, when it is tested again, for me and all of you still reading this post. Which is why it's important to acknowledge that this process requires:

  • A deep sense of trust in something bigger than yourself
  • Courage to surrender that which you cannot control and embrace the unknown
  • A willingness to be vulnerable and acknowledge our limitations and imperfections
  • Knowing the difference between 'giving up, being passive and adapting and accepting what is
    A deep sense of self-awareness and recognition when our ego is trying to take control and micromanaging the universe
  • The ability to stay present with what is s uncomfortable it might be and make decisions aligned with our desires, not the fear of what we might lose to make space for them in the process
  • Divine surrender is a practice that calls upon our capacity for trust, courage, vulnerability, resilience, self-awareness, and mindfulness. It's a lifestyle, not a manifestation tactic.

So, if you're ready to ride any retrograde or cosmic wave like a boss, grab your cosmic surfboard and let's dive into four tips to help you navigate this cosmic circus with courage and strength.

1. Recognize the Cosmic Vibes: When retrogrades hit and full moons rise, it's easy to feel like the universe is throwing a curveball your way. But hey, it's all part of the cosmic dance floor. Instead of seeing these events as external forces messing with your plans, recognize them as invitations to tune in, listen up, and take inspired action.

2. Flip the Script with E+R=O: This simple but powerful tool is something I picked up in my training with Jack Canfield. It's a game-changer! E+R=O stands for Event plus Response equals Outcome. In other words, it's not just about what happens to us (the event), but how we choose to respond that ultimately determines the outcome. So, when the cosmic rollercoaster of retrogrades and full moons throws a curveball your way, remember, your response is your superpower in shaping the outcome.

3. Dive into Divine Surrender: Surrendering to the cosmic flow doesn't mean throwing in the towel and letting fate call the shots. It's about trusting in the wisdom of the universe while owning your power to co-create your destiny. So, when retrograde chaos strikes, surrender your need for control (or at the very least pray for the courage to), and let the universe work its magic. Who knows? You might just be pleasantly surprised by the plot twists it has in store.

4. Embrace True Responsibility and Release of Control: Sometimes, true surrender means being willing to lose it all if it's part of the bigger plan. This requires trust, courage, and a willingness to choose yourself even when it's hard and scary.

Ask yourself:

  • What would it take for me to trust in a bigger plan for my life?
  • How can I tap into my courage to choose myself, even when it's challenging?
  • What small steps can I take to release my need for control and surrender to the flow of the universe
