What you SHOULD and SHOULD NOT do during this time period
What does retrograde mean? It is an astrology term meaning it looks like it is going backwards through it’s own orbit. So how does that affect us energy/spiritually?
When this occurs in astrology, depending on the planet and what it governs, it means things are in reverse. So in the case of Mercury because it rules all forms of communication, (writing, emails,phone connections, tv broadcasts, etc., plus truth, travel, clear thinking, anything related to planning, writing, etc.). During a retrograde things very well may just go completely opposite of what you hope for to happen.
You may find your cell phone cuts out right in the middle of an important call & you can’t reconnect to them or find your television reception goes out right when you were enjoying your favourite show or movie, or dealing with a case of writer’s block & maybe those mysterious issues with your car that only seem to happen at this time when Mercury is in retrograde end up happening again & the mechanic can’t figure out why.
So what do you need to do? Many astrologers will say don’t sign any kind of contract, don’t go to the doctor, don’t get married or file for divorce, don’t buy a car, a house or go shopping for anything fun or that isn’t needed, don’t frivolously spend money. Don’t plan surgery, travel or anything in the way of a major project launch or such.
Life happens & we can’t put everything on hold just because of these types of things. Mercury goes into retrograde several times a year, this upcoming one is August 30th to September 22nd. That’s almost a month to put major life decisions on hold. And as Mercury does this several times a year, that’s a lot of waiting time…
My advice is this.. If you are anyway concerned about decisions like this, first thing - stay positive. Ask for help from the universe and maybe take things step by step, day by day. I mean hey we need food and gas for our cars, and to pay bills and so on. So keep in mind that while this is happening it doesn’t need to rule every single daily moment and incident in your life. That being said... Keep aware and if you notice a pattern then perhaps there may be something to consider here.
This does not mean the universe is against you. The message is seek within, self reflection and if you truly need to make a major life decision about something then take it one step at a time and ask yourself…. Have I thought this through? Are there any possible things I’ve missed? Does doing this make me feel confident or should I wait?
This is also a time for personal self reflection about your life, lessons you need to learn, things you need to purge and shift so that you can release them and let them go for a while so you can be a better version of you.
I am available to consult with you on things like this. Ask me about a general life 10 question reading or ask me for more details on what I can help you with related to matters of life during this time.
Mercury Retrograde and Twin Flames/Divine Partnerships
Now many of you who are familiar with astrology know that it is meant to be a guide to life and not the be all and end all of what exactly what is meant to happen. Forewarned is forearmed I like to think. Be aware of what might happen but do the right things, think and say the right positive things and better things will occur because of your intention.
Now some things you might want to pay attention to during this time:
1. Mercury is ruled by the planet Gemini - which is associated with twin flames. Symbolized by the symbol ♊, the symbol of two number 1’s uniting, it also represents split personality and if you’re in a twin flame connection, both you and your twin have and are probably going through these things at times. No need to worry, it’s all part of the process, but I can help you understand their behaviours and yours in this connection. Please ask me how!
2. Interestingly enough Gemini also rules the Tarot card - The Lovers which is associated with the number 6 so if you see lots of 6’s and lots of 2’s be sure to notice this during retrograde periods, it is the universe’s way of saying you’re on the right path, the two of you are connected and it’s getting stronger every day. The number 6 relates to balance, peace and harmony and unconditional love as well as passionate, and sexual and romantic love between twin flames, if you see a lot of that during a retrograde phase, know this is excellent news as in 5D and also perhaps in 3D things will be of good energy and connection between you. Remember your intention!
3. 6 is also a soul mate number so you may attract new soul mates to help teach you things or just have a really good friend or close family member that you bond with really well, and there is nothing romantic or sexual about this connection, any new soul friends or connections are just that friends, not lovers. Soul mates are not always romantic in nature and very often aren’t.
Read a past blog article on that here: http://www.carolmarylove.com/blog/twin-flame-vs-soulmate
4. You also may see a lot of 11:11 and 1:11 and similar numbers during Mercury retrograde, perhaps more than at any other time. This is a sign from the universe to find and make the time to connect with your twin flame in 5D. Close your eyes, open your heart, send thoughts of love and support to them. If you need help with this then…. Ask me how!

5. You very well may experience past life issues, past relationship issues (with ex lovers and perhaps ex bosses, ex’s in many forms) come up more during Mercury retrograde. This is showing you what you need to let go of, to purge and release, and learn and grow and change from it.
Nothing to panic over of course, but I’m telling you here to be more aware that lessons come up during times of planets in retrograde but especially during Mercury retrograde so as I said forewarned is forearmed. In order to move forward on your twin flame journey you need to get rid of the junk and garbage holding you back from reuniting with your twin. And yes… before you ask I can help you with this as well, don’t hesitate to consult with me.
6. Lessons in karma may come up, this could be for both you and your twin. Breakups, divorces, job loss, not achieving in school, or so on, anything like that might happen. Because you’re connected you may feel each other go through things. Don’t worry it truly is all part of the process.
Should it get intense please ask me how I can help you.
If you’ve been wondering if you have a twin flame or what is going on with your life, or just need some insight I am more than happy to help provide you direction. Please spend some time in the blog archives and look at some other past articles. Email me ideas on what you would like to see for articles. I would definitely appreciate your feedback and your insight.
Maybe a question a week kind of blog type of thing based on a general overview of what I see in relation to twin flames or just life in general and how to be more balanced body, mind and soul.
As a reunited twin flame, I understand all the stuff you’re going through. Please consult with me should you need assistance in this journey.
