Your innate need for harmony and balance in your life can be disrupted when Mercury is retrograde – people are responding to situations more emotionally, rather than rationally. Due to the misunderstandings afoot, people are also lacking awareness of the other person and less motivated to try to get along in relationships.

Therefore, during the Mercury retrograde cycles of 2014, your best bet is to re-focus your attention on your inner world. Write in a journal to see your options for how you can more effectively satisfy your needs for peace, harmony and beauty in your world. Uranus and Pluto are stirring up your need for radical change this year and during these days you can go inward and sort out the kinds of changes you want to make in your life.
