With 6-7 planets retrograde and Mercury in the pre-retrograde shadow phase some are wondering what hit them! Knowing it's the stars doesn't help much so try to hang on. Don't make big decisions until after the Autumnal Equinox - or later! I'm a natural recluse but still means tighten the reins, activate Ninja mode (practice invisibility), nest in etc. In spite of all that, I've already been smacked sideways so watch out, take care, metaphorically hide under the bed, pray/invoke protection/shielding to ride this out.
