WHAT IS MERCURY RETROGRADE…..
This means that 3 or 4 times a year, planet Mercury is said to go retrograde — meaning it moves in an opposite direction to planet Earth. Planets move from east to west around the sun, and when Mercury turns to move from west to east instead, that’s when Mercury is in retrograde. Many refer to this time of year as simply Mercury retrograde. But this backwards movement is an illusion, similar to the one you experience when you’re in a car on the highway moving faster than a train alongside you.
TIPS to get through Mercury retrograde:
🌏Take a deep breath; this won’t last forever.
🌏Slow down, take your time and pay attention to details.
🌏Take care of anything that requires reevaluation and revision;
🌏this is a good way to channel this energy positively.
🌏Do you need to heal something from the past or connect to someone from the past? This is a good time to do it. This phase gives us a chance to retrace our steps and go revisit old ground.
🌏Observe, review and release. Remember to breathe!
