During the times that Mercury is retrograde, people often notice more challenges with correspondence, our communication as we interact with others. It can also show up in our relationship to our neighborhood, our siblings and challenges with cars and local travel.
Some of you may have noticed less activity on this site in the past while. We have emerged from a family crisis. We're back!
The Mercury Retrograde of February in the Sign Pisces saw an unknown virus sweep through first China and then the rest of the world. Too many world leaders were caught in a confusion of what mattered and delayed action.
