This is not the usual Mercury Retrograde.
When Mercury makes its Retrograde station, the Moon in Capricorn trines Mercury, and so does the North Node in Virgo, creating a Grand Trine in Earth. (Mercury will trine Jupiter in Virgo during this Retrograde station, but it’s a wide -10 degree- trine at the actual station.) This is NOT a difficult Mercury Retrograde. It may even be too easy.
You may be able to avoid doubling back over recent steps by thinking twice. But if you make mistakes and need to retrace your steps, do things twice, you have options. You can let it stress you and get irritated. Sure. Or, you can realize that you have a larger, tighter, smarter, more professional and committed circle of support than you have acknowledged or utilized.
Moving fast, you can miss things, big and small. So Mercury Retrograde gives us time to remember to be more mindful. Tune into your sacred inner voice as it speaks to you, even if it means slowing down.
Mercury Retrograde in earth-sign Taurus wants us to be grounded. Not flighty, not reckless or careless, but conscious, awake, and centered in your being. Connected to the Earth and open to the Sky. How can you get grounded and feel more connected? The next 3 weeks can make it easy to get there.
First, think twice.
