Mercury Retrograde 2018
Tomorrow, Thursday the 22nd ushers in the first full Mercury Retrograde of 2018. And it falls in the sign of Aries!
Expect the usual delays in travel and communication and that general feeling of Mercury malaise and being stuck in the mire. Aries souls are courageous and confident, yet they can also be wildly impulsive and caustic. This Aries energy will be swirling about in this retrograde, and so it is safe to say that we should all be giving extra care and thought to both our actions and our filter before we speak ;-) Remember to pause and give some thought to perhaps a decision you might be making that really isn’t in your best interests, as well as taking that pause before speaking words that might be hurtful or judgmental.
This retrograde can also usher in people from our past. As challenging as this may seem, when people from our past present during a retrograde there is often unfinished business. Allow the process as awkward as it may appear or feel. Although the start of a Mercury Retrograde tends to come with a collective sigh, remember that it can be a great time to release old and stuck energy and possible pain from a previous experience or ending. It allows for a time to start healing so that when Mercury goes direct, you can start anew and move forward feeling less burdened.
