During Mercury Retrograde, you’re processing emotions from your past. This is a good thing! This means that you’re clearing these stagnant feelings once and for all. Since Mercury is associated with how you communicate and it’s also in Gemini now (which is associated with how you relate to other people as well as learn new things), you might feel the need to PUT YOUR NEEDS AND FEELINGS FIRST. Your happiness is a priority – and it’s not going to come from pleasing everyone but yourself.
MOST LIKELY, YOU'RE BEING AWARE OF HOW YOU NEED TO CHANGE THESE ASPECTS OF YOUR LIFE:
- feeling exhausted because you don’t have enough time for yourself
- being drained after you help others
- experiencing dramatic mood shifts
- no longer wanting to please everyone (because you need to put yourself FIRST)
- compassion fatigue
If you’ve been used to putting other's needs ahead of your own, it can feel scary to change your behavior. You might feel that other people won’t be able to take care of themselves without your help. Or perhaps you fear you will no longer be loved by them.
TRUST these feelings inside of you. Your well-being benefits everyone. If you are happy – that will enhance the lives all of your loved ones. Here are four essential steps to maintaining good boundaries AND healthy relationships.
MAKE YOU A PRIORITY
You will be amazed at how much happier you feel when you honor yourself and make your well-being a priority. You will see that not only are you happier, those around you are as well.
Use the remaining days of this marvelous Mercury Retrograde to make YOU a priority. Once Mercury goes direct again (on June 11th), you’ll be ready to go full speed ahead for a marvelous rest of the year.
