I was born during a Mercury Retrograde and it has been a great teacher. Timing is everything and pushing against the river is exhausting and usually futile.
Retro time is excellent for all the re-words, reaccess, recover, renew, remember.
On the physical plane to prevent all those “accidents” associated with the “Retro” try getting up-to-date on all those repairs you’ve been putting off.
It’s a time to reflect on one’s life and avoid the quick fix that runs roughshod over the deeper lessons.
Remember Mercury is both messenger and healer, so slow down, the present moment awaits you!
