Mercury Retrograde Explained
There are certain periods in the year when the planet Mercury appears to be moving in reverse. Retrograde motion is technically an optical illusion caused by oppositional orbit between the Earth and Mercury.The ancients correlated this slow down as chaos as mercury is very quick and slowing down is not a mercurial strong suit.

Mercury was the messenger of the gods, so anything related to texts, emails, phone calls, and social media is governed by this planet. When there’s planetary friction and we view retrograde from the earth, it feels like more goes wrong than right. Typically occurs 3-4 times a year for a few weeks at a time, you might notice an accumulation of bad days.
The good news is that crystals 💎 are a great way to counteract Mercury Retrograde!
