Summer is almost here! But this summer does not mean good news for everyone. For those who have been living under a rock, Mercury has influence over communication and technology.
So, when it goes to retrograde, it starts affecting all these sectors of our lives. Mercury retrogrades are common — going 3 to 4 times every year. This time, the retrograde takes place July 7 – July 31. This means there will be a lot of chances in passion and problematic responses.
Keep a check on yourself. And if you really want to stay protected, go for these crystals:
With the feminine energy of Amethyst, you can activate your creative forces. You can finally communicate your needs and start activating your passionate side. Writing and painting will become your way of dealing with the retrograde. Express yourself through your art.
Using it: Start with your creative projects. Meditate with an amethyst crystal in order to open up your third eye. Write down all your themes. Start planning.
Mercury retrogrades bring a lot of stress. After all, technology and communication are important parts of our life and when these take a hit, we invite more stress.
