As Mercury enters his retrograde shadow on Wednesday, you may find some old fears and doubts arising that you thought you’d moved past already. Do your best to realize there is no way to go backwards, it’s all just coming up for review and hopefully a final clearing. Everything you desire is yours for the asking, but you have to ask with a pure, open heart that Knows you are worthy of what you want. This may take a little bit of stretching on your part, past the limits you’ve placed on yourself in the past, but with your positivity and strength, this will be a piece of cake for you. Feelings arise, let them. If they cause you some distress, embrace it, don’t run away. Facing your fears now can yield the biggest rewards you’ve ever known.

Every leap requires a step backwards.
