Whether you're an avid Co-Star fan or not, you've probably heard of Mercury Retrograde - and the trickster planet is back and more mischievous than ever.
It's a time when everything can feel flightly out of whack - you may find yourself losing your keys, missing appointments, or *heaven forbid*, forgetting to moisturise your hands before applying a fresh tan.
So, if you USED to be like us and had no idea what ✨Mercury Retrograde✨ was, then grab a pen and paper, as we're about to give you the astrological lowdown!
What does 'Mercury's in retrograde' mean?
According to astrologers, Mercury retrograde is simply an optical illusion where the planet Mercury appears to move backward across the sky. This tends to happen 3-4 times a year, with this Mercury Retrograde starting on September 9th and finishing on October 1st...LUCKY US!
Mercury rules communication in all forms - listening, reading texting, BeReal'ing (LOL). So when we're in these retrograde periods, we recommend trying to remain flexible, patience and understanding. Be flexible if you need to GLOW but your partners in the bathroom. Be patient if you decide to leave our Total E on for a few extra hours for a deeper bronze and most importantly, be understanding that sometimes, we just can't be bothered to put on a self tan. We get it, it's hard WORK!
