The planet Mercury… Hermes the messenger… and thief… was headed to the land of Libra when a second thought came and had him retrace his steps in Virgo. Yes, we are in Mercury retrograde!
Second thoughts can work well as when, for example, you go over your work and correct any mistakes or typos and what not. Second thoughts can also militate against your own intuitive flow, perhaps talking yourself out of a bet on the horse that eventually wins the race.
Today, if there is a sense of struggle and frustration with things not working out as you wish, consider trying less hard. Tension is exacerbated when you, by trying to control your affairs, stop breathing. It is as if someone has taken your breath away. The joke is, it is probably you yourself.
Try this: relax. Events unfold as they will. Sometimes it is best to take the easy way, release the hand that seeks to control by gripping hard. Let people and events unfold. Good information and good news can emerge in this way.
