Retrograde Survival Guide

It's that time of the year again babes... Mercury is in retrograde, and life is about to shift toward the wild side. What is Mercury retrograde you ask? When Mercury passes Earth in orbit, it creates an optical illusion that it’s actually spinning backwards. Crazy, right? In astrology, Mercury rules communication, travel, and technology, so you can expect a few bumps in the road in these areas. But fear not! Your Luxxe fam is here to give you some of our favorite self-care tips to survive the Mercury retrograde. We want to help keep you feeling your best, even when the world around you is spinning out of control.

Clean Your Space

If you missed out on Spring cleaning, now is your chance! It’s a great time to channel your inner Marie Kondo and tidy up. The name of the game during a Mercury retrograde is to control your controllables. When life around you is a little messy, you can always come home to a clean house to help you feel more grounded. Plus, who doesn’t love a long walk down the aisles of the container store to inspire some organization in your life?

Treat Yourself

Since Mercury rules communication, you’re bound to have some misunderstandings that may leave you feeling frustrated and down on yourself. Don’t forget to love on yourself a little extra during this time. Eat that cake you’ve been craving, buy the shoes you’ve been dying over, or book a glam sesh with your favorite Luxxe pros to help boost your confidence. We all deserve to be pampered, and this is the perfect time to treat yourself.
