Living in Gratitude
It's time to rejoice, mercury has gone direct, and we are all grateful. The Little Page of Peace posted, be grateful that certain things didn’t work out. Sometimes you don’t even know what you’re being protected from or where you’re being guided to when you’re in the midst of chaos. That’s why you just have to trust that greater things are aligning for you. Let go gracefully.
Nobody escapes the retrograde as its backward motion tends to pull on our very gravity, down here on Earth. Retrogrades happen with every planet, but when Mercury is the main event, we reap the effects of bad communication, insulting conversation, tech failures, relationship trauma, and on and on.
When we experience Mercury retrograde, we experience trouble, failure, financial loss, job loss ... even poor health issues can come up. So, it makes sense that when Mercury goes direct, as it begins to do so on February 3, 2022, it's somewhat of a time to rejoice.
According to Merrium Webster, Gratitude is defined the quality of being thankful or the readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. And when you remember, Gratitude, which rhymes with "attitude," comes from the Latin word gratus, which means "thankful, pleasing." When you feel gratitude, you're pleased by what someone did for you and also pleased by the results. Unlike indebtedness, you're not anxious about having to pay it back.
The bible says "Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." "This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." ... "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
