Maybe blame is a strong word (or maybe NOT, because PERSONALLY, the Retrograde and #RetroShade has been fucking with me so hard), but to deny the obvious and tangible shifts that are going on would be ignorant. Those of us that are aware of and sensitive to the subtle energetic shifts that flow like a current through our collective energy fields know that as much as times like this can really suck (like REALLY), there is always a lesson to be learned within the fray.
Besides the typical chaos and confusion that tends to happen in the realms of communication (hello, writer’s block), technology (I know MY phone has been acting so crazy), or any sort of plans you THOUGHT you had, Mercury Retrograde has a way of mischievously digging up all of your latent issues – big and small – and forcing you to deal with yourself in relation to them. Things fall apart, sometimes in the most ridiculous fashion, so that not only are you forced to watch in awe, but you’re forced to pay attention, really see what’s going on, and address it… Or not – but I suggest you do. Mercury doesn’t like to be ignored and this Retrograde in Aries is making it even more fiery and demanding than usual. There’s an air of “do as I say or get burned” that’s proving to be a veritable pain in the ass. Unless, of course, you listen.
