    How did all my fellow Leos weather this recent Mercury Retrograde (March 22nd - April 15th)? A friend of mine this morning was like, "Well the next week or two we're in Retroshade." My friend defines retroshade as wrapping up and resolving any miscommunications or missteps that resulted from the Mercury Retrograde.

    In my case there was relationship miscommunication which led to us going separate ways. Work and traffic were just minor random struggles that were easily cleared up with my teams or addressed by leaving an extra 15-20 mins for LA Traffic.
  • I also had a relationship that involved going separate ways.
    A flight delay that caused me to miss my connecting flight.
    I got sick! And a lot of stress/drama at work.
    Hoping for the best to come
  • I also had a relationship that went separate ways. Tbh, I did n't expect this to happen. She is the one who called it off. I also felt like I was drowning.

    There's been random miscommunications here and there, but having gone through enough of these I've learned to repeat myself several times (and to triple check everything) to avoid any big mishaps. My car needs some repairs that, while not entirely unexpected, became an issue only in the last few days. Also a long time colleague, who I had a brief romantic fling with, is parting ways with me because of a change in job. While I care for her still, I think the parting of ways is probably for the best and am preparing to say "goodbye" to her.

    Just know that while Mercury retrograde creates issues with communication and technology, it also brings about reflection of the past. This often means that relationships can breakdown and past lovers may even come back temporarily. Once the retrograde is over though, it's possible these issues may reverse themselves (not always). So if you broke up during the retrograde, it's possible that the ending isn't permanent.
  • Was super suffocating the last 2 weeks of it, my ex kept showing up in my mind. I had to stop myself from breaking No Contact and mess up my healing.

    On a good note, a lot of guys from my past and recent contacts kept popping up to reconnect.

    Dude, can I just say Mercury Retrograde is real... they say don’t look for/accept a job positions during this time and after being turned down for a month I just accepted a position this last Wednesday after it went direct? Also, since my Venus is in Leo I had some dreams about my ex 🤮
