Our winged messenger is beginning to fly a bit slower and is in official retrograde motion, Aug.12-Sept. 5th. Currently, our fleet-footed Planet is in the Sign of Virgo. We can expect most of the communication snarls to occur in areas of life that are classically Virgo-work, health and daily routines.
In health matters, make sure any intended medical tests/ procedures relate to actual issue. Check to make sure appointments are scheduled correctly.
Confusions, changes of work routines and any implementation of new tech in the work world could be a bit of a nightmare.
The usual Mercury retrograde cautions apply. Ensure your e-mails, texts, calls, letters are being sent to the intended person(have heard some wild stories..). Check your security programs. Mercury retrogrades are times when computer viruses, scams are run rampant!
Mix-ups in communications, schedules are to be expected. Do your best to check and re-check! Take extra care with any documents. If possible, delay signing any legal docs until after Mercury flies a little straighter!
Okay, so where is the wisdom bit?! This is truly an excellent time to re-evaluate! Work, health/diet routines and fr. Sept1-5th matters of love and creativity. In work matters, what is your aim? Has life become work,all work? This re-evaluation can lead to bigger changes that impact quality of life and more..
If you know your Chart, see what 'House' Mercury is traveling through while it retrogrades. For example, if Mercury is moving through your 8th House, you will be re-considering banking practices, insurance, wills, partner's finances etc.
We hear from people from the past when Mercury is retro and ideas, visions often re-surface..maybe now is the time!
