The first Mercury Retrograde of 2021 begins this weekend, skymates, in the sign of Aquarius. Cultivating the art of emotional detachment, while also being universally connected, is the lesson Mercury has in store for us these next 3 weeks. Aquarius, you’re about to learn more lessons about yourself, your needs, and the world around you than you have in quite some time. Mercury’s retrograde in your sign may feel trippy, as it will connect you to past periods in your life when you may have had to surmount tremendous obstacles to get to where you are now. And now you’re entering a new phase of ascension, so similar obstacles may be circling back in your life — but now that you know better, you’re moving better. This weekend, spend time with yourself, celebrating the evolution you’ve experienced so far. This retrograde is here to help you thrive on your continued journey.
