Today marks the end of the Mercury retrograde, but let’s not celebrate just yet: Mercury is still in its shadow period—also called retroshade—until May 31. We might still feel a little difficulty making decisions or expressing our feelings, which means it’s better for us to sit and reflect on what has happened in the past three weeks rather than make hasty decisions that we’d end up regretting. On a positive note, the Moon forms a sextile with Uranus at 9:21 AM EST today, which makes our intuitions stronger and helps us become more open to change. However, it’s best that we only make minor decisions based on our intuition as our minds are still fogged up by Mercury’s retroshade period.
