Out of Retrograde

There was a time when my astrological natal chart was my guide. Natal charts contain the location of one's birth and the positions of the constellations and celestial bodies in the solar system at the time one is born.

Knowledge of the attributes of one's zodiac sign, of the celestial bodies that comprise the components of each constellation and of the angels associated with each zodiac sign are contained within one's natal chart.

One of the primary attributes of Mercury is communication. One theory is that when Mercury is in retrograde, misunderstandings and unpleasant situations abound because of miscommunication. Organizing one's thoughts and composing oneself before communicating with others is effective but, by themselves, they are not the best remedies.

To avoid most occaisions for regret, I meditate on the following passage from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young.

"Do not let any set of circumstances intimidate you. The more challenging your day, the more of My Power I place at your disposal. You seem to think that I empower you equally each day, but this is not so. Your tendency upon awakening is to assess the difficulties ahead of you, measuring them against your average strength. This is an exercise in unreality.

I know what each of your days will contain, and I empower you accordingly. The degree to which I strengthen you on a given day is based mainly on two variables: the difficulty of your circumstances, and your willingness to depend on Me for help. Try to view challenging days as opportunities to receive more of My Power than usual. Look to Me for all that you need, and watch to see what I will do. As your day, so shall your strength be." - Jesus Calling by Sarah Young (November 11). ISBN: 978-1-59145-188-4.
