The Tarot cards for today are the Three of Swords and Temperance. Mercury retrograde is notorious for misunderstandings and hurt feelings. If you find yourself in the middle of conflict, remember the astrological weather. Misunderstandings that happen during Mercury retrograde usually straighten themselves out by the time Mercury retrograde is over. Mercury retrograde lasts about 3 weeks. You already know the drill because Mercury retrograde comes back around approximately every three months. You’ve been here before—many, many times. Hold steady. Cut yourself and others some slack.
