Mercury is in its retrograde phase about three or four times a year, and many of us feel its effect on our emotions and thoughts. During its reversed movement, Mercury brings things from the past back to the surface; it affects travel, that is, delays or cancellations, and electronic devices such as computers or phones can have technical problems.
These positive affirmations can help you remain motivated and strong during this special “retro” period. The next Mercury retrograde will be in the sign of Capricorn, December 29-January 17, 2023. You can use these affirmations when Mercury is in its “shadow phase” or when it enters its retrograde phase.

- I am in total harmony with everything around me.
- I am free from all forms of fear.
- I choose to be free of energy-wasting doubts.
- I let go of the past in order to move forward now.
- I now choose to release all the fear and move beyond my past.
- I remember to tell myself how strong I am.

Since Mercury retrograde is associated with our past and letting go of things or people, I suggest you use these affirmations for letting go.
