The medium of exchange becomes faster and more powerful. The word Merchant comes from Mercury. Exchange, energetic, information or physical.

Slow down. Take a few breaths. Take your time doings things. Re think, re evaluate, reconsider, reconstruct. Know during this 3 week period it's best to not rush things. Do not buy things on a whim, or impulsively. That is what Mercury retrograde can often do is cause impulsive decisions. Best to think things over before pulling the trigger so to speak. Chill out, think and then re think about everything you are doing. Try to lessen your work or activity load because this can cause making foolish decisions. Time to clean, time to organize time to Feng Shui. Time to think, ponder and plan. Take a chill session, and re evaluate everything before impulsively jumping into it.
Chill out and enjoy the ride. Time for some self exploration and self care.
