Anyone with Mercury as 12th house ruler, or Mercury in aspect to an outer planet, Mercury square to Ascendant, MC or planets - heck - anyone with a Mercury, may experience challenges improving their self-talk. Mostly, it's about changing a habit pattern, one that rises up when we aren't being kind, generous or loving to our SELF. The vibe that self-talk creates comes back to us, over years or even lifetimes. Changing our self-talk to thoughts of love, kindness and encouragement will change our lives. No questions asked!
As Jeannette Maw says, “The universe can only be as good to you as you are to yourself,” and face it, we aren’t always that self supportive.
What to do?
Think about your self-talk when you look in the mirror.
Are you your own best cheering squad, or do you list the faults and things that need to be ‘fixed’? What about at work? In your creativity? Your daily routine?In relationship to others?
When you lay awake at night, are you thinking of the things that went right or ‘wrong’?
Most of us are in the habit of self judgment, criticism and denigration. Just imagine what signal that sends to the universe? It’s a spell that conjures more of what we don’t want.
But there are ways to turn those harsh self judgments around, and this post is dedicated to exploring, discussing and practicing them.
The first step is becoming aware when we get snarky with ourselves. That's all. Note it. Don't judge it. Find a way to smile and say, "There you are." It's catch and release. With. Love.

This is one of Jeannette's tips and it really is magic.
Get a little notepad and on the first page write, I am worthy . . . write it a few times, just to get in the head space. Then go with some specifics. It might look like this:
I am worthy . . .
I am worthy of love . . .
I am worthy of closeness . . .
I am worthy of connection. . .
I am worthy of happiness . . .
I am worthy of my family . . .
I am worthy of my power . . .
I am worthy of success . . .
I am worthy of my place in the world . . .
I am worthy . . .
Do the exercise once a day or as you feel to, and watch things shift.

I'll add other ideas as we go along. Feel free to post your progress, discoveries, and successes. With Mercury about to turn Rx in Taurus, it couldn't be better timing to start a self-talk awareness practice!
