Low on energy? Mercury in retrograde. Phone broken? Mercury in retrograde. Ran away and moved to another country? Mercury in retrograde.
Jokes aside, three or four times a year, the planet Mercury is said to go retrograde — essentially it moves in an opposite direction to planet Earth. Over a period of three weeks, this movement of the planets is said by astrologers to signify a period of mis-communication and mis-hap. Computers freeze and act up, travel plans go wrong, things are lost in the mail, technology and appliances breakdown. It can be a little chaotic. For the record, this is scheduled to happen next month! The pre-shadow phase of the two weeks leading up to Mercury Retrograde is a time where you are likely to get a natural urge to complete projects and tie up loose ends.

Iron, the most common mineral in your body, found mostly in red blood cells. Its main job is to make hemoglobin & myoglobin. Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells that moves oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. If your body does not have the hemoglobin it needs, your tissues and muscles will not work properly, which can lead to low energy and worst-case scenario anemia.
Yes, they’re on trend and all over Instagram, but adaptogens are nontoxic herbal supplements that come from ancient herbs and have been around for thousands of years.
