Many of us can be scared of the effects of Mercury retrograde, which started July 26 and goes until August 19. But why should we spend those weeks living in fear all of your tech is going to fry or your close relationships are just going to fail overnight? There are certain things you can do during this summer 2018's Mercury retrograde to make life a little easier. After all, we're all only human, and reality is ours to win.
Mercury retrograde can also be an amazing opportunity to heal. It could be seen as this: there's more pressure on us to go within and be more intentional about what does and doesn't serve us, so while there's more of a likelihood for things to go wrong, we also have more of a chance of bettering them. It's all just energy waiting to be used, and inaction may often be what does us in during the same energetic periods ruled by communication.
This retrograde is the second one of the year, meaning you can look at the period of events during the first to try and see what went wrong.

By that token, there are tools for you to make sure you're bundling up with to survive Mercury retrograde. Read on to see more:
