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). Sagittarius, Mercury’s retrograde through Aquarius is taking place in your sector of mental understanding, learning and studying. Mercury retrogrades are for sorting out details, contemplation, and seeking information before finalizing major decisions or commitments. You may have noticed a slowing down of your impulsivity and ability to make fast choices. As a ‘bigger picture’ kind of person, being asked to notice the details may seem a little unnatural… but there’s a lot to be learnt here. Be sure to take your time on any major decisions – acting rashly could have some negative consequences.
