It’s upon us again, folks—the dreaded Mercury Retrograde.
Today at 10:55AM EST, Hermes will begin retracing his steps from 17º Aquarius all the way back to 1º.
Yes, all the way back to the beginning!
See, the good news is we’ve been in the Retrograde Shadow all this time—since the 5th of January. So, these energies will hopefully feel a bit old hat to us by now.
The not-so-great news is Mercury will remain retro till February 11th, but won’t pass the 17th degree (meaning he clears the Shadow) til the 3rd of March.
Nearly two whole months with this vibe out there—hell, the actual retrograde could be seen as the calm eye of the hurricane. Yeah?
First, I am gonna run down all the stuff the mental Water Bearer gets up to on his little escapade. Then I want to talk a bit about why we should relax and see this whole terrible travesty as an opportunity.
