Everything is in retrograde, which means everything has the potential to be awful. Mercury enters retrograde three times a year, and lucky for us, it's happening during the entirety of March and affecting most of the zodiac. You can't hide now, Aries -- buckle up, because it's going to be a bumpy month. While you're trying to keep your sh*t together when it feels like the world is against you, we have one step toward positivity for you: retail therapy. Go the extra mile and make your shopping trip one that includes amethyst, a crystal that acts as a general calming presence and, more specifically, eases emotional turmoil. Plus, it's really pretty.
