Like many around the world, I find myself sheltering-in-place. And in these unprecedented times, I have spent a lot of time turning inward to see where and how I can be of most help. To be honest, when life first began on the trajectory, we now find ourselves, I became a little frantic in my desire to be of help to family, friends, neighbors, clients, and students. In those early days, that feel like 3-months, not 3-weeks ago, I created a two-page list of all the classes I was going to develop and launch in a week.
Once again, Mercury, the messenger, is moving backward through the sky. Although the term Mercury Retrograde is becoming ever more common, it is often misunderstood. So, before I take you too far down the rabbit hole, here is a little context as to what is happening. Firstly, when a planet is retrograde, yes, all planets go retrograde; it is not, in fact, moving backward; it merely appears to be from our perspective on Earth. I often explain it to clients by likening it to the sensation of driving by an 18-wheeler and experiencing the feeling of drifting backward.
