Raetrograde: The Mark of a New Era

Finally! After the endless Mercury retrograde, we’ve been set free from our indecisiveness. I’m pretty sure Mercury -which rules all communication- is the most hated retrograde of all time. When Mercury is in retrograde it’s difficult for us to make life changing commitments. Those weekend plans you made with the crew? Yea….not happening. It’s embedded in us to stay far away from any interactions when Mercury is in retrograde. During this “horrible” astronomical experience we’ve watched our lives crack into shambles. Just as we learned on Atlanta “Champagne Papi” episode, it’s not real! Any time a planet is in retrograde it appears to be moving backwards. However, it’s not actually moving backwards. Therefore, our lives are not at the cusp. We’re just getting started baby! Here are a few things to remember when you feel like you have nothing left:

  1. “Let everything you do be done in love” – 1 Corinthians 18:14. Be certain everything you endure is what your heart desires. It could be as little as figuring out what you want to eat for dinner. Or something big like establishing your career path. If you don’t want to do it, then dub it. Simple. Don’t second guess.
  2. Everything is not a race. Somehow being in your twenties is associated with rushing. It’s okay to not have your life schedule planned out. TBH we really don’t know what’s going to happen in the next three seconds. Take your time, just because a colleague may seem to withhold the secret to life, doesn’t mean that your stars have to be aligned too. All that glitters isn’t gold and we all move at different paces.
  3. Don’t deal in negativity. Nothing left to say except, trash it! Rivet your eyes on your joy.


As we enter into Saturn’s Retrograde, take the time to internally nurture. In this moment, we will realize what is for us and what is not. Focus on building within and stabilize a routine to execute those dreams. No more dwelling on the past. Alternate your VSN to curate what’s new!
