You’ve probably heard a lot of bad things about Mercury retrograde, and they’re not entirely unwarranted. Still, having Mercury as your patron planet means you get more benefit out of the positive aspects of Mercury retrograde—like running into old friends or scoring great vintage finds—than everybody else. This one’s been all about old friends, but after Mercury direct on the 3rd, you’re ready to find a new crew. A few days later (on the 10th), Mercury lines up with electric Uranus to jolt your social calendar back to life! On the 15th, Mercury slips into your sleepy twelfth house, reminding you of your limits. Even if you want to do everything all the time, you’ve got to take care of yourself. You nurse your overcommitment hangover until the sun enters your sign on May 20, reinvigorating you inside and out. By the time your solar new year arrives (with the Gemini new moon on the 25th), your glow-up will be complete. Don’t let anyone dim your shine!
