It’s Mercury retrograde. You’re running late and your Uber drives right by you. You hop another one, only to remember that your meeting’s been relocated. Try as you might, you can’t remember where to. Don’t tear out your hair, or start a rage-relax, reevaluate, reinvigorate. This happens 3 times a year for 3 weeks at a shot, when there are delays, miscommunications, literal and emotional traffic jams. Rework what you’ve already begun and wait until August 1 to start that new project or book that flight. And be mindful of what you say…it’s a good idea to bide your time and bite your tongue (gently) before you speak. You may find that you don’t want to say it after all.
The most important thing to remember during the weeks to come is to keep your sense of humor. Mercury is now in Leo the clown before reversing into sensitive Cancer on July 19. That’s when misunderstandings are more likely to cause emotional owies. Ask for clarification if you don’t get what’s being said. Remember that it’s okay to cry and to allow others to do the same. And don’t be the Kleenex Box Hero-let the tears flow, happy or sad.
