You don’t require precision to feel at ease, but when others become upset because of the lack of clarity in the atmosphere, you feel their anxiety. You want to be a healing influence on those around you, but at this time, their mental anxiety may be difficult for you to soothe.

Therefore, during the Mercury retrograde cycles of 2014, your best bet is to plan more alone time than usual. Pull inward and focus on your own needs for inner relaxation and serenity. Work on projects by yourself as much as possible and you will access deeper levels of compassion. It’s also a good time for writing in a journal, and reflecting upon the needs and motivations of those around you to gain a more realistic view of current situations.
