Let's Disrupt Some Bullshit!
Mercury Retrogrades are not here to piss you off!
They are here to help us fight against bad systems & edit our mistakes. We can use these sideways times to fuck up capitalism & patriarchy while also downloading our personal messages from the Universe. Will it make technology & traffic weird, yep. Is it harder to communicate, uh, yes. But, sometimes we need to disconnect, stay home & STFU.
Let's dig into all the ways we can use Mercury to fight patriarchy, capitalism, and whiteness. Before we can truly change a thing we have to understand why & how it was created.
Before you dig into the WeRKsheets and videos consider these thought/journal prompts.
- Do you know WHY these systems of oppression were intentionally designed?
- Do you know their origin story?
- Do you know how you fit into the ongoing narratives of our culture?
- Do you believe that change is possible?
- Do you understand that changing your SELF is the first step in making a larger change?
- We all 'know' that "Change Is Hard" BUT is it really?
Is change hard or is this another intentional narrative designed by the system to keep us from knowing and believing that we are actually very, very capable of change and adaptation?
We can absolutely get stuck in our ways. AND we can also initiate and create unbelievable change. This is especially true with our mindsets and beliefs... why? Because we are social creatures with an endless curiosity and a desire to make connections and systems. We want to live lives of ease and comfort but we are not afraid to WORK, especially when it's for the good of all. We wouldn't even have survived to be what we are now if we weren't built like this. This is how our system operates naturally BUT/AND we're also inherently lazy and self-protecting beings so when we're born into a system intentionally designed to scare the shit out of us with impossible expectations and unattainable requirements we can't help but be conditioned to act against our collective best interests.

Take Some Time To Learn About Mercury | The Planet of Communication is one of the three Personal Planets. It is closest to The Sun and that's why it Retrogrades three times in an annual Sun Cycle, its orbit around The Sun is so quick compared to ours.
Its focus is on communication and connection on the mental/ intellectual plane. Mercury rules both Gemini and Virgo. This is why it's the planet of thoughts, beliefs, ideas, and of cataloging important data. Mercury seeks information for the purpose of building intellectual and ideological pathways and improving our overall mental health and wellness.
Okay, now that you've done some research you're prepared to enter this cycle. As you move thru this remember, Mercury Retrogrades give us an opportunity to see behind the curtains and under the hoods. They are Magical Gifts & Tools from the Universe... in this WeRKshop we're gonna explore how you can reclaim yours and use them to fuck up this bullshit system up.
Over the next few weeks make sure you come back to this WeRKshop to review and reconsider its offerings alongside your personal discoveries and experiences. I will be adding info as Mercury makes its transits during this Retrograde Cycle so I promise it will be worth the time.
Make sure you've downloaded and, if you're able, printed your WeRKsheets. These are also good guides to use, even if you can't print them out.

Little Update: During the making of the video I noticed I forgot to add the Sun Conjunct Mercury Aspect to the list. I've edited it so as you watch the video be aware that the graphic is different. Let me know if you have questions about this.
