Mercury in Retrograde

Mercury is now retrograde. From August 23 to September 13, Mercury will travel from 21 degrees of Virgo all the way back to 8 degrees off Virgo. Mercury in Retrograde is one of humanities most influential retrograde.  Mercury is ruled by Gemini and virgo, and it rules your interpersonal processing system.

This is why often times, things feel really out of place when ever mercury is in retrograde. Delayed travel plans, miscommunication, and so much more. Technical snags and miscommunication in close relationships will be experienced. It is important to take EXTRA care when Mercury is in retrograde. Signing documents and making plans will need MAJOR consideration.  The riskiest times for decision-making, negotiations, communication, and transport are the few days on either side of the exact retrograde and direct stations. But there are positives, such as recalling fond memories or unexpectedly meeting up with people from your past.

In astrology, 21 degrees is associated with the sun sign of Sagittarius and the eighth degree is reserved for the zodiac sign of Scorpio. Mercury is retrograding in Virgo, which is characterised by its orderliness, preparedness, adherence to routine, hard work, it could put well-thought-out plans of all the sun signs in a tizzy. One might feel like losing control over life situations.

Mercury trine Uranus brings curiosity, open-mindedness, ingenuity, creativity, intuition and psychic awareness. Original and brilliant ideas open up exciting new opportunities you can make the most of with quick thinking and decision-making. Flexibility allows you to adapt to rapidly changing conditions.

Keep in mind this is the same energy Mars just cleared a path for us through. Mars and Virgo seem very different on the surface. Mars is direct, impulsive, and impatient, while Virgo is careful, practical, and detail-oriented. However, these two share a certain sharpness that can be combined to enhance productivity. So when Mars enters Virgo, it marks the beginning of a great time for getting things done -- it's a unique combination of fire and foresight. If conflict arises, try to resolve it with minimum drama and act diplomatically when brought into a fight by another. Arguments won't reach a high; a resolution will be found immediately and coarse words not spoken.

Overall, Take a moment to reflect. Mercury retrograde can be an excellent time to take a step back and reanalyze who you are and what you are doing—but do refrain from making any drastic changes until after retrograde has ended.
