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. Sag, this is an ideal time to pay attention to your emotional, intellectual and interpersonal needs. This retrograde activates your communication sector, asking you to be as unique and eccentric in your beliefs as you want to be, but to also question the ways in which you share your truth, and why you feel the need to share it in the first place. Retrogrades are ideal periods for going inwards to better know and understand oneself, and you’ll find that the person you feel most fascinated to conversate with this retrograde is yourself.
