Yesterday mercury in retrograde knocked on our doors to say ‘hey there remember me?!’ rather loudly.
Between buses not showing up yesterday and a 2 hour train delay the night before, it seems pretty clear that this mercury in retrograde is really going to slow us down a bit.
This time it comes amidst the holidays just days before Yule (link) and a week before Christmas. Essentially it’s arriving at a time when most of us are hustling around.
Its not quite the time you might want to slow down but perhaps the time when you need to the most. When you’re running around like a crazy person it is a lot easier to make mistakes.
Slowing down gives you time to reflect and meditate on how you want to move forward. Sort of fitting before the New Year arrives, even if the slowing down wasn’t quite planned.
