Happy Mercury Retrograde Day!?!? Today, the little trickster begins his seemingly backward jaunt through Gemini, the Air sign he calls home, not to go direct until June 22. The post-shadow period will run through July 7, and Mercury does not move on until July 11. So, if you are in it for the long haul, like the rest of us, then this guy is your Knight. If what you desire is less shenanigans, and more results, then you need to become him, and hope for the best. This will be a retrograde for the books. So, what is it you need to do? Slooooow doooown. Lighten your schedule. Do not add to it, and do not take on new projects. Do not begin anything else. If you work meticulously, as does the Knight of Pentacles, on things which you have already begun, double- and triple-checking as you go, then you are on the right track. This guy shows up on time, and is consistent in all that he does, making him the perfect person to navigate this retrograde. It is important to remember that Mercury involves both thought and communication, which ultimately covers a very wide range of activity, including travel, and the Knight of Pentacles is very much the tortoise in the age-old fable, ‘The Tortoise and the Hare’. Make your motto, “Slow and steady wins the race”, and you will come through rather unscathed.
The Knight of Pentacles may be considered the most boring of the Knights, for he is not daring, or romantic, or even passionate, however, what he does have in his favor is that you can always count on him. This is one of his most endearing qualities, so take your time with things, and do them right. Just like the tortoise, he plods along, slow and steady, toward his goal, and you will never see him running to and fro working himself into a tizzy.
