Thanks 🙏🏼❤️

Living with someone who was born on he last day of a retrograde is rough but for this time of year. They are fairly normal when a retrograde is in effect but as it ended the person got more and more reclusive, distant and withdrawn from life.... Such a blessing when the retros come around.... LOL I'm probably the only person happy to have retrograde times....
