The Perihelion of Mercury begins. The theory of relativity predicts that, as it orbits the Sun, Mercury does not exactly retrace the same path each time, but rather swings around over time. This means Mercury is getting closer to the Sun as it advances forward. Mercury is seen as our way of thinking and communication. It is a point of verbal understanding and self-expression, helping us to find a way of explaining our inner truth to the outer world.
This Astrological event has been known to drain our energy. Be strong! Have you been wasting your time and energy fighting situations that are actually not worth a second thought? Don’t let your imagination build small troubles into big ones. We plan everything so stringently and that everything will just work out for us without the slightest of hiccups. We expect that the whole world is out to get us and everything that happens is somehow about us. Stress causes us to overreact, but overreacting doesn’t release any of it. All it does is create more stressors in our environment. Address issues when they arise or as soon as you’re able, and then move on. Find a friend or significant other you can vent to. Let it out so you can let it go and move on.
