You NEED These 7 Crystals to Get Through Mercury Retrograde

Mercury went retrograde on April 1st, 2024, but don’t worry: we’ve got you covered!

You probably know by now that in the astrology world, Mercury retrograde tends to have a pretty bad rep.

When the planet of communication appears to be going backward, it sets all the “normal” stuff in reverse: miscommunication, lack of understanding, technological glitches, anything and everything just going wrong.

However, this is just a little reminder that Mercury retrograde isn’t all bad.

If anything, it opens your eyes to just how prepared you are for the unexpected. No one can know what the unexpected is (of course!), but are you flexible, adaptable, and changeable? Mercury retrograde can be a wake-up call when we’ve become stuck in a rut or when we’ve allowed stubbornness to keep us tied to our comfort zone.

We could even say that Mercury retrograde has got a bit of that stern Saturn thing going on because it throws at us challenging situations and, the fact is, we have to sink or swim. As many of us would much prefer to swim, this is one article you need to keep to hand during Mercury retrograde this year.
