Get down with us as we collectively prepare for another cycle of Mercury in Retrograde. Our fusion grooves and psychedelic sounds will leave you well equipped to handle this upcoming period of astrological illusions.

Sometimes our solar system's planets appear to be traveling backward through the zodiac - this is an illusion. We call this illusion retrograde motion. Mercury's retrograde periods can cause our plans to go awry. However, this is also an excellent time to reflect on the past. Intuition is high during these periods, and coincidences can be extraordinary.

When Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow time for extra travel, and avoid signing contracts. Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions. (Courtesy of The Old Farmers' Almanac -
