Relaxation for Dummies, by Mercury Retrograde

Positives functions of Mercury retrograde include taking care of old matters, wrapping things up, and dealing with things left unfinished. This Mercury retrograde calls us to work on creating a sanctuary, or at least a little more comfort and enjoyment. It’s a physical and financial process, and hopefully we can get some real business done before it’s time to weekend.

The moon enters tropical Cancer at 8:15 a.m. on the west coast, and there’s a positive intuitive or social potential throughout most of the day before we begin another round of exploring whatever fears or unfounded perceptions are ruling our psychology. It may be a perfect Friday night to take nothing seriously, yourself especially, and unwind.

Mercury retrograde sometimes chooses to torment us, though he seems to select his subjects carefully. If he’s on your rear end this time, you already know it, and the key to Mercury retrograde is the practice of patience and humor until the cosmic trickster is done with you.
