Mercury Retrograde is a several week period in which the planet Mercury appears to be moving backwards into its shadow. During this time communication, scheduling, transportation, and judgment becomes cloudy or error prone. Many people experience memory loss, time loss, misplacing items, and foggy thinking. In the world of technology, we can also have unexpected glitches like software crashes, emails getting lost, lines getting crosses, etc. It can even appear as "things just are not making sense."
You can do a lot in order to avoid the consequences of Mercury Retrograde. Most of us encounter the consequences when we are not centered, aware or conscious of what is going on around us, and more often than not it is because we are not acting from our heart and spirit. Instead, we are reacting from our needs, our hurts, from our buttons being pushed. introspection and inner work is the answer during this time. Take advantage of Mercury Retrograde by clearing your own tendencies to get caught up in your own shadows and those of others.
