Whether we believe in the stars or not, many notice when Mercury Retrograde rolls around. Even though I try to keep up with the stars, this one slipped up on me. I should have taken note when things got stressful, a sign of the Mercury Pre-Retrograde shadow phase, August 10, 2016 but in hindsight I was reacting to the catch-22 shadow energy slowdown energy? The Action Planet went stationary retrograde August 30 through September 22, 2016 and will favor us with the post shadow phase through October 6 so backup and backoff until it's over. All the R's apply: Review, Release, Revision, Restore, Renovate, Rejuvenate, Rejoice and maybe for some Romance/Relationships. Let's make it a good one!
