Gemini (May 21st to June 20th)
Most Mercury-“ruled” people like you (with the other people being those influenced by Virgo) dread Mercury retrogrades. As one sets in on Monday, I encourage you to embrace this retrograde as a time to LOVE getting back to the drawing board, to find your way back to the nitty-gritty of how things were originally. Perhaps a few years ago, you embarked on a journey to do a simple thing. Then it became complicated with a lot of other things. Now is a time to un-complicate things and start getting out in the open those things that are most important, most essential. You’ve been stretching your “wizardry” muscles lately, and perhaps you’ve getting on your own last nerves (or somebody else’s) in the process. You’re still on that grind, but this is a time to check your basic book of spells rather than trying to concoct a bunch of stuff in the alchemy lab.
