There is only four days of Mercury Retrograde to go now. I’ve really enjoyed it this time round. Probably because I’m in a good place to really notice the fluctuations of the energy. I’m sticking to my intention & letting any challenging situations simply wash through me. It’s working for sure as I’m feeling very breezy about it all.
I’ve mentioned before retro is the best time to implement changes. These changes I feel can be a lot out of our control, we may not get the exact result we indended. If you struggle with being a control freak I bet you’ll be glad when this is all over. I’ve let go of my reins where in the past I’d be gripping on for dear life.
How many people have had technical issues with electrical equipment? I sure have. Blog posts not sharing & email alerts not appearing. My phone would not hold a charge & for a few days wouldn’t even recharge. My design software was been painfully slow. With every single click the Mac ‘wheel of doom’ showed up. It was taking hours to get things done with the constant re booting to freshen things up. Again I’ve just rolled with it or used it as a good excuse to go tech free for a few hours.
One thing I paid attention too this time is what commenters of the retrograde always write about. Deals entered into at this time are subject to change. This can be good & bad depending on what you are trying to do. For me I am trying to sell my car. Not desperately, I’m not in any rush actually but I did feel two weeks ago it would be good for it to be gone by now.
How I came to be selling it in the first place was out of the blue & a bit random. It was a result of a manifestation I made four years ago coming to light unexpectedly. Anyway, I found a buyer but not after reducing the price to lower than I wished. I felt it was a deal done & then they pulled out. I let it go, as I said I’m not desperate.
Within a few hours of buyer one pulling out another buyer came forward who was super keen. Cool I thought, I’m loving the retrograde chopping & changing things it’s quiet fun. Again I lowered the price to accommodate the buyer. I changed my plans for the day to fit in with them viewing the car. Then they pulled out. I was a touch disappointed as I’d changed my day but I knew there was a reason for this happening.
I touched base with how I truly felt. I am in no rush to sell. From a paper work point of view it will make my life easier if I have the old car till my new car’s paperwork comes through. I have private plates & it makes the whole process easier if I can do a straight plate switch. If you’ve ever been to a WA licensing office you will get where I’m coming from, one trip is much better than two.
The main reason I feel these sudden changes are occurring is that I was selling myself short money wise. I kept lowering the price to fit in with the buyers. Okay yes it’s the norm to set the price & be prepared for some haggling. I had also disregarded my ‘lowest price’ bracket. The last offer I accepted was $1800 below than the replacement value the car is insured for. I can see why the universe is throwing me curve balls. I just need to sit tight & the right buyer with the right amount of money will present itself when they’re ready. The car is clean & safely stored away in a garage so it’s not in anyone’s way.
A few years back these sorts of broken deals or sudden changes would have freaked me out. Before I could not cope with things like that as I was constantly trying to be in control. Tight shoulders, headaches & anxiety would have been ripe. Now I’ve learned it’s easier to just surrender. Roll with it. There’s no use wasting precious energy on things that I have no power over.
As the Beatles put it:
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da life goes on brah, la la how the life goes on.
Have you had any plans suddenly change or unexplainable happenings over the past three weeks? Please share in the comments below.

Trust is a powerful word. It takes such a leap of faith to fully trust in something when you are feeling a little unsure. Learning to trust & let go of my control has been a great challenge for me. Especially when you go through life being a trusting person to then have that trust explode in your face leaving you hurt.
Since I’ve been learning to work with the invisible universal powers that be, trust had to come into play. Especially when you’re dealing with something that is not tangible. Our poor restricted, conditioned human minds struggle so hard to believe in something that hasn’t been ‘proven’ or we can’t see ‘see with our human senses.’ Oh we can use our human-ness to connect with the invisible we just need to get out of our heads and trust.
Last week was huge for me in trust land. I had no control over a situation & had to place my trust in the hands of the universe. Are you sitting comfortably? Now I shall begin my story…
I’d been working super hard on a personal design project with a very tight deadline. I thrive on a bit of excitement & pressure it was great to have something to get my teeth stuck into. I gave up a whole Saturday, rearranging and cancelling commitments in order to give me lots of time to get my project underway. It went very well, I was pleased with the out come of the full days work. The project continued through out the week to its final completion. Friday I had everything in order and printed out on lovely glossy stock ready to take home in a folder specially purchased for its transportation.
It was a very quiet day and most of my colleagues had left early. There was no point me staying as there was no one to actually give me any work so I headed off two hours early. What luxury for a Friday. Special folder in hand as well as two other bags I looked like quite the packhorse getting myself to the station.
I deeply desired to get a seat at the end of the carriage so I could tuck my folder down the side without it getting bent. The seat as desired materialised for me as I wished. My folder was safely and straightly stored down the seat. You can probably guess already what happened next. Yes I got off the train and forgot my folder!
Exiting the train I bumped into a friend who actually knew I’d been working on my project & enquired how it went. Realisation hit me so hard I felt physically sick. All my work had been completed & was now heading unattended on the train north. My poor friend was abandoned in the car park as I quickly thought of a plan. A man who must have over heard my flapping pulled over in his car to tell me the phone number I needed. Nice man, thanks for the advice, I now had plan B.
The station has an attendant’s office but I had no idea if it was manned. Hot footing it over there, again willing so deeply someone would be there to advise me what to do. The station attendant was there and didn’t seem fazed at all a customer had a lost property enquiry. He got straight on the phone & made arrangements for a transit officer at the end of the line to go check the carriage for my folder.
A nerve wracking ten minutes came next. I was putting out so much energy and visualising myself with my folder again. ‘Nothing is truly lost in the eyes of the universe’ I kept repeating to myself. I’d only given this advice out to someone else the other week and his ‘lost item’ was rediscovered. I knew I had to trust deeply that the outcome would be the right one. All that work, all that paper and effort. It wouldn’t have been a huge problem to reprint everything but I didn’t want to redo it all again. I stayed calm, breathed deeply and didn’t waste precious energy on thinking the worst. I only thought about my desired outcome positively.
Trusting paid off. The phone call came the folder had made it to the end of the line. Another passenger was in the process of bringing it off the train when the transit officer arrived to collect it. It was waiting for me in the office at the station. I could not thank the attendant enough. I sent so many thanks; gratitude and love out in return as I drove up to collect my folder.
I didn’t make it home much earlier that day I trust that is how it was meant to be. There was definitely a lesson in this for me mainly to stay present & trust in what is meant to be. If the folder had gone missing en route I had to trust it was for the right reason.
It is truly magical when you surrender control and put trust in the universe the out come will be the right one. When you work with the universe things happen so simply. It’s our human-ness I feel that complicates matters. We over think & over look what is right under our noses. From following my own Soul’s guidance I am noticing even more the answers are so simple when you go with flow.
