Today is a busy day in the skies! Mercury went retrograde so the next few weeks are excellent for reviewing, revisiting, reorganizing, reflecting and in my case relaunching - the all new She Fire Membership Circle is being relaunched later today, watch this space and your inboxes for more info! Mercury went retro on the very last degree of the zodiac, 29 degrees Pisces so it's as if the communication planet is saying sort everything out before you move forward into a new comm
Mercury goes into retrograde today. I've lost count of how many appointment times I've had to change this week be it to do with work, friends or school happenings!
