Beware-Mercury Retrograde is Coming
Mercury Retrograde is the phenomenon when our neighbor, Mercury, passes earth at a slower speed than we are traveling and looks as if it is moving in the opposite direction.
When we pass each other, this is a Retrograde period. Retrograde begins July 26 and will end August 19.
Retrograde is a great time for any verb beginning with RE:
Reassess, reorganize, release etc. MR is also a time to hear from those you’ve not spoken to for awhile.
MR is not a good time to purchase something new, sign contracts, have elective surgery or begin a new relationship or business venture. It’s also more difficult to communicate, both physically and interpretively. Flights are delayed more often, calls dropped more frequently, emails lost in the ether.
Personally, I hate Mercury Retrograde! It’s at the very least a pain, and more often for me, very painful.
So how is MR related to Feng Shui? Feng Shui is all about the RE, so this weekend is a great time to reassess your space, reorganize, release physical things we no longer need and things in our head that no longer serve us.
Once we start moving in this direction, we are able to see what can fill these spaces we’ve RE’d and how to achieve balance, which is a primary function of Feng Shui. To maintain the Feng Shui balance, we need to RE about as often as MR occurs, about 4 times a year…… so hold on to your hats, or RE-linquish them, whichever best serves you.

The dog days of summer! To boost your chi as we enter the long stretch of Summer, Fu dogs(also known as Lion Dogs) are a great addition to your space as a symbol of protection and family wealth. They are placed as a couple, a male and female for balanced energy, and are often placed at the front door outside the home or office. You can purchase a pair of Fu dogs online, any size and the style that appeals to you and place at the front door of your home or office, or, if this is not possible, you can instead increase your fame and reputation by adding any animal symbol, real animals (dog and dog bed works) or photos of you favorite animals in the South of your desk or office.
