How is your retrograde going so far?💫 hot take: mercury retrograde isn’t as bad as it’s reputation may lead you to believe🤯 communication is ruled by mercury, so as it makes its three-week journey in retrograde, all forms of correspondence are thought to go awry—misunderstandings abound, and you receive surprise visits/calls from unexpected people👀
but i don’t believe that’s what the retrograde really is about. mercury retrograde is about pausing and working a bit more carefully in our actions and words; it’s a reminder to live intentionally. it’s so easy to just go on autopilot and get through our mundane tasks as fast as possible—then texts get sent to the wrong person, and the one time you send an email it sits in your outbox.
for these three weeks, we are asked to double-check all of our correspondences: rethink your words before speaking them, revise your proposal or paper before submitting. now is also the time to re-evaluate your relationships—with others and yourself🌿
