What is your response to the phrase: Mercury is in retrograde?
If you’re like most, you’re probably at least familiar with this phrase.
In my experience the vast majority of people react one of three ways:
Roll your eyes, whatever.
OMG I am not booking any plane tickets or attending any meetings for the next few weeks.
What is that again???
None of these responses are bad, per se, however they lack a degree of nuance. In astrology, we need to develop a space somewhere in between taking things too seriously (#2 above), writing them off (#1 above), and total confusion (#3 above).
