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. Taurus, with Mars in your sign at the same time as Mercury’s retrograde, it would be wise for you to spend time this weekend purging physical objects from your space and clearing out heavy thoughts from your mind. The more you can ground yourself in the present moment, the less shook you’ll feel by this retrograde. You’ll also have to practice patience more than ever, because you may find yourself having communication issues with people left and right. Instead of fighting the energy, ask yourself what it’s teaching you.
