AKA my favorite thing to blame any technological, energy, mood or travel misshap on. Pump the breaks and alert the troops - mercury is in retrograde since yesterday (May 18) until June 11.
I totally believe this astrological phase affects my life. Duh - there MUST be some cosmic reason for the misunderstanding, or bump in the plan, or for my email to suddenly not be working. So, when something goes awry, I typically find myself first asking aloud to the office, "is mercury in retrograde?" Usually to no reply (because I am probably the only office believer) and then I resort to Google search. By the way, if you're ever curious, there's totally a website for this: www.ismercuryinretrograde.com.
We are now one full day in to mercury's stay in retrograde and can you believe it – my car’s “service engine soon” light just came on. Just saying…
What I did NOT know (until yesterday) is that mercury retrograde serves up some good mojo too. It is a wonderful astrological time for “re” based activities like reuniting, reviewing, relaxing, reflecting, revamping and revising. Well, hallelujah – because I have a lot of those to get completed in the upcoming weeks.
Take it all with a grain of salt, but jot down your list of “re” activities and use this time period to your advantage (whether you believe in it or not).
Your favorite moon child,
