How to survive a three week communication crisis?
Mercury rules over all types of communication, whether it is writing, speaking, reading, social media interactions, communication technology, or any other method of transmitting information. It also rules transportation and travels, and during Mercury retrograde periods, there are more noticeable disruptions, breakdowns, and complications within all of these areas.
Like last summer, the scene for errors is in Virgo, one of the signs ruled by Mercury, so the struggles could potentially be more significant than other times. Virgos are souls who constant think, calculate and question things, not only their surroundings but probably most of all themselves.
A key when Mercury retrogrades in the highly detail-oriented and somewhat critical Virgo, is to avoid getting stuck in over analyzing things or worrying too much about the outcome. Instead, use this period as a thorough inventory of your life as it favors organization, planing and solving practical problems.
So what else could we think about? Well, there is not much we can do about the actions of others, except to be more conscious and prepared for any delays or errors by double checking. Also, as much as outer matters can be challenging, know that it's an excellent time for introspection and inner work.
Personally, I seem to get more things done when Mercury is retrograde, and have found it to be a great time for more productive and focused activities, especially related to self improvement. So, see it as an opportunity to reflect and gain insight about how to respond to any challenging circumstances you may face, then these weeks will be remembered as gift.
