Mercury is your ruling planet, and when it goes backwards in retrograde motion, your reliance on planning goes a bit out the window! It’s an emotional time?suited to relaxing perfectionist standards and instead turning your attention inward for self-discovery and self-improvement, rather than accomplishing outer tasks.

Therefore, during the Mercury retrograde cycles in 2014, your best bet is to re-focus your attention to your inner world. Slow down your productivity and spend time in activities that feel healthy and restorative to your body. Write in a journal to reflect on how you can make adjustments to create more order in your world. Neptune in Pisces encourages you to tune into subtle levels of reality and listen to your intuition more deeply, so making quiet time for meditation and reflection is essential.
