Some times it helps to take a step back and look at things from a different angle. Mercury retro helps us with this, though usually in ways that can cause a little bit of stress and annoyance along the way. As we wind down this Mercury retro cycle though, we have a couple of other aspects kicking in that make it important to think about things in sensible and real terms.
Venus and Uranus are connecting to Saturn right now, and this puts the onus of "Are you taking care of the things you're supposed to" on a lot of our situations. When we think of situations, often it's in a stagnant, unchanging form. This is especially true of our desires. But these things evolve over time too. It's easy to get locked into a mindset on a situation, but if other parts are moving, we have to keep moving ourselves. So use this energy as a reminder that you have to keep up to speed with your duties and responsibilities. Stay aware of how things are changing and what you need to do to adapt.
At the same time, the Sun connects with Neptune, which can do some wonky things to the mind and in our dreams. In some ways, this can escalate the mental and emotional impact of the things we're presently experiencing. When things are going great, it's awesome. When they aren't, it might feel like the sky is falling. Either way, it's going to help if you take these things with a grain of salt. You can't totally disregard what's presently occuring, but you also need to know that you can't fill in details you don't know with things you're imagining. There's a bigger picture going on out there, and it's often harder to see, but do your best to find the information you need in order to fill in the blanks. Best of luck.
At its core, this energy can be extremely poignant when it comes to the things you're passionate about. There can be a lot of things you turn into "make or break" types of situations. With that said, be mindful that "break" might mean some doors in your life are coming to a close. There can be some transitions occurring here, but it's important to keep in mind you can still steer where things are heading to a degree. Some people might choose to give up an accept whatever happens, but you don't have to be one of them. Look for new opportunities - those will tend to get you excited and keep you engaged with what you're doing.
