How do we know that our lives have accelerated?
Mercury as Trickster energy brings the speed, the planet of communication and changes.
Mercury as a planet symbolizes all forms of communication. According to the Chinese Astrology’s Five elements theory, Mercury is in Fire now. The nature of Fire is fast and changeable. This is one of the reasons our communication is getting faster and faster.
Especially in 2017 we are facing fast changes in our social and in private lives as well.
As Fire is a very active and changeable element it is advisable to plan to slow down before you make life decisions. Moving house or changing jobs will have far-reaching effects on our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. Take time to consider such a move.
How to benefit from Mercury’s positive influence and how to avoid the negative ones?
Pay extra attention to the following areas during this year:
- Good communication – double check your emails and mobile SMS if your message has gone through or not
- Travelling – make your travel plans very cautiously. Allow time for delays or blockages on the road
- Planning – It can happen that some of your plans will not turn out as you planned. Take time to plan carefully ahead
Misunderstandings and stressful situations by communication gone the wrong way
For example: When you agree on where to meet, make it clear which place it is. Ask which station when you agree on, any town, any place. Otherwise, you may end up waiting for each other at different railway stations of the same town. Avoid a comedy of errors!
