Think about all words that begin with “re” – and what meaning they hold for you.
During Mercury retrograde, we may hear from people we haven’t heard from in a while. My favorite astrologer, Anne Ortelee, says this is a time when we hear from our ghosts – whether living or no longer on this plane. They have messages for us. So if they come calling – talk to them! Or, we may feel like reaching out to those we have’t talked to in a while. Reach out!
For instance, with Mercury Retrograding in Leo, it may be a time to let go and enjoy the warm summer sun while not worrying about looking “perfect”! It’s nice to look good, but this may be a lesson in relaxing about our outer appearance. On the other hand, if you’ve got an important event to attend, it may be wise to be prepared by bringing back up attire, or allow extra time for ironing—just know that you may have to make an extra effort to feel good about how you look, or that someone may spill red wine on your white blouse . . .
