Have you noticed that for the last three weeks, communication in general has been off? Mechanical breakdowns have been more common and directions seem to get fouled up more often? This is because Mercury has been retrograde. The good news is that it is moving in a forward direction again. It turned “direct” this past Sunday, setting our brains in forward motion again.

The Moon is waning this week. She is in her last phase as she gradually gets smaller and smaller while rising later and later each night. As a result, our emotional reserves dwindle as the week progresses. Choose yoga sets that are more meditative and inward-focused as opposed to the more physically challenging ones. Also remember that Mercury is still retrograde – all this week. It is a time to turn inward, reflect on the past and get back money that is owed to you. This is not a time to sign contracts or purchase anything with electrical or mechanical parts. Communication is off in general and our minds seem to be working “in reverse”.
