The Mercury retrograde begins today, and it feels rather appropriate, since this is usually the time of year when we look back at where we've been and what we've accomplished. Whenever Mercury retraces its steps, we're encouraged to reflect on the past so that we can figure out how to best move forward. Today is extremely useful for handling unfinished business or working on projects that are already underway, especially if there are revisions to be made. It's also a great time to plan as we think about what we'd like to do differently in the new year.
