Skymates, let’s talk Mercury retrograde. Mercury retrogrades are for sorting out details, and this one has a particular influence on our social networks. Mercury is about to conjoin Venus tomorrow, so the messenger planet will likely inspire a loving download. It’s worth checking in with ourselves, as we’re up to the last chapter of this retrograde (before it goes direct on Feb 20th). Aries, Mercury’s retrograde through Aquarius is taking place in your sector of community. It’s as though the feeling of Aquarian energy is extra heightened for you, as this sign also rules community and social networks. You’ve probably been noticing some changes in the ways you relate to others, and you’ll be drawing your conclusions very soon. Some journal prompts or questions for you during this time are: how do (or don’t) I feel as though I belong to the world? How am I bringing about positive change to those around me? What kinds of people make up my soul family?
