Mercury Retrograde + Lunar Eclipse Survival Guide

A bevy of challenging astrological aspects will be coming our way this week, beginning with Mercury going retrograde on the 25th, to be followed by a full moon in Aquarius and a lunar eclipse on the 27th. At the same time, hard aspects like Uranus squaring Mars, the moon, and the sun, as well as Neptune opposing Venus, will already be in play.

All this boils down to a week and beyond of high tension, added stress, a proclivity towards impulsive action, possible heartbreak, and a strong desire to go against the herd. Phew! That's a lot of messy energy to contend with.

To survive, we suggest putting your focus on slowing down, breathing deep, surrendering to what is, and resisting the urge to push or pull at circumstances beyond your control. In other words, you need a heavy dose of calm. Here is a collection of some of our favorite products for helping with just that!
