Misunderstandings, travel delays, technology issues, not to mention emotional and behavioral changes, are just a few known traits of Mercury being in retrograde again. Frustrating, especially in Leo season. However there are ways to survive and thrive over the next 3-weeks. Here’s our list:

1. Build an epic playlist. Curate songs to help you tune out the world & tune into yourself

2. Extra self-care. Meditate, get a massage, take walks, or stay inside & binge watch your favorite shows

3. Reconnect with old friends. Gather for a picnic & get sentimental

4. Clear your home's energy. Burn some sage & re-energize with fresh soft bath towels
