With Mercury in Retrograde until March 28th (and feeling the shadow aspects of this through April 16th), please remember to be extra conscious about your communications.
As womxn, we crave communication. And yet, we often find ourselves in situations where we ignore our desire to connect and communicate or we close off. And the Truth is, it is not our fault.
I just read an article last night about babies and children. They don’t know how to self-regulate. They don’t know how to articulate all of their emotions nor how to label exactly what they are feeling. It is up to the parent or caregiver to teach this and to offer, as the Author noted, a way to co-regulate.
So, if you didn’t grow up with a parent (or parents) who taught you to understand all of your feelings, to honor them, to tune IN, and then learn how to communicate effectively, then this has to become something you feel inspired and passionate about teaching yourself.
On top of that, as womxn, we have both the feminine and sisterhood wound. Meaning that we are navigating the suppression of Self + our mistrust with other womxn in our communication experiences.
This puts us in a wobbly situation (and then insert Mercury Retrograde) to be really great Communicators, especially when triggered or our wounds have been niggled.
