Mercury retrograde is here, and it's not going anywhere until mid-August. This is a period of time when everything seems to be a bit off. The planet Mercury rules all types of communication, including listening, speaking, reading, and negotiating. It also rules contracts, agreements, travel, transportation, and computers. During the retrograde period, all of these things can be affected, making life a little bit extra frustrating for all of us here on Earth. Mercury retrograde happens often — about two or three times a year — so it's helpful to learn some coping methods to get through it without feeling crazed. One way to do that is to practice meditation. There are a few different meditations that will help you manifest what you want during Mercury retrograde, even if the time period itself seems to be against that.

Getting through Mercury retrograde in one piece is all about using the time to your advantage. This might not be the best few weeks to make a big decision or to start something new, but it is an ideal time to reflect and take a moment to breathe. This is when you want to slow things down, take some time to yourself, really think about where you are in life, and try to get rid of the things that no longer serve you. All of these things can help you manifest what you actually want to allow you to go after what's right for you. Meditation is helpful in that sense since it teaches you how to focus and how to stop getting distracted on things that don't matter in the end. Try out the ideas below to ensure that this retrograde period is actually a good one.
