In case you were wondering, Mercury retrograde is likely responsible for that weird urge you have to reconnect with your ex, those technical issues you’re facing and perhaps even that brain fuzz you’re experiencing when it comes to making decisions and plans.
But its effects aren’t just limited to your mental state. Yep, it even extends to your physical state as well — fun! Everything from your energy levels to your skin may feel the effects of the changing astrological landscape and its ensuing energy.
Here’s what you need to know about how Mercury retrograde is impacting your body, energy, and mood (and how to deal with it).
According to astrologer Helen Frost, how you channel said energy during Mercury retrograde is pivotal.
“However it can be a challenging few weeks emotionally, and it would be easy to misdirect this energy which could have unpredictable and serious repercussions.”
On the flip side, that lethargic feeling could leave you wanting to skip your circuit workout and sleep all day. The best advice? Stick to your daily routine as closely as possible, channel excess energy into exercise or creative pursuits, and don’t make any major life decisions when you’re feeling low or anxious.
Whether it’s real or just your perception, you might feel that your skin looks dull and grey and that things like fine lines or under-eye circles are more prominent.
Regardless of what your skin concerns are, whip out that cooling jade roller and your favorite serum and spend some meditative time restoring hydration and plumpness to your complexion.
Unfortunately, this will coincide with a period where most people will feel the urge to eat more than normal to compensate for their exhaustion or stress.
Comfort foods like pizza and pasta will be front of mind but try to avoid excessive sugar, caffeine, or alcohol that could play havoc on your already anxious state, and make sure you’re loading up on veggies, fruit, whole grains, and satiating proteins to keep you full and energized.
