3:59PM EDT 20 August
to 7:09PM EDT 12 September
Approach: Began 01 Aug- The last day Mercury was @ 05 deg Virgo
Shadow: Ends 27 Sept- The next time Mercury reaches 19 deg Virgo going Direct
This is not the case for the Trickster Mercury, who only cruises in reverse for a mere three weeks, as this inner planet plays out a dissimilar energy that the collective undeniably senses. All too often one wonders within all the zany craziness: What in the world IS going on lately?
Yet, as we also know, Mercury Retrograde periods are never to fear. Surely though you will see those unawares typically getting aggravated and frustrated by Mercury’s typical bag of tricks he draws from over this period.
As Mercury readjusts those communications and movement this time in his own mutability of Virgo, the tendency for those unexpected changes will intensified, and that needed response vs. reaction will be more important than ever to adhere to.
Ultimately, these 3 weeks are best spent adhering to any word with that begins with RE: such as: redo, reassess, read, revisit, rejoice, realign, rest, review, and by all means RElax! YES, your eyes do not deceive you! Even though summer seems to be already coming to a close- there is definitely an extended vacation time allowed this year.
We’ll be letting you know more about how the upcoming Full Moon in Pisces will be in opposition to Mercury’s tricks and what other affects will be cast upon the planetary mix-up. You may find getting back to the regular old routine in September will be a slight more challenging this year.
But be sure to take a look at your 05 deg to 19 deg Virgo ruled-house in the natal birth chart. This is the area of life where personally you’ll see those communication mishaps, changes, and delays the most, as well as seeing a restructure of some sort unfolding within the next 3 weeks.
From the collective horoscope approach, we have a quick and easy guide that pinpoints where Mercury’s energy’s will outwardly affect you, and where you are best to place your reflective cap on within. No doubt, you’ve probably already been thinking about these things…
Aries: Health/Being of Service/Employees
Taurus: Creativity/Children/Love Affairs
Leo: Values/Earning Power/Possessions
Virgo: Approaches/Mask to the World/Motivations
Libra: Inner Psyche/Clearing of the Past/Subconscious Process
Sagittarius: Career/Public Life/Opportunities
Capricorn: Philosophies/Foreign Travel/Education
Pisces: Partnerships/Marriage/Balance with Others
Try not to question everything at this time. And if you do, REflect in the actions/thoughts leading up to your doubt. You just might find you got caught up in a one too many details in your previous analysis. Remember the Sun will also also shining in the Virgin’s light, so there is a positive energy to gravitate and choose at any time.
It will be essential for us all to truly proceed with caution and extra pause under this all-Mercury Retrograde transit. There’s no better opportunity to hone in on than the number one Virgo virtue of being of service. REmember your manners and some gentle politeness when things go wrong… See if you’ll find a better result. Otherwise, be ready for all the more nit-picking and fussy energy to attract itself to you.
TO DO or NOT TO DO under Mercury REtrograde…
Expect CHANGE: in travel, routines, & schedules to occur suddenly
Give yourself extra time to get where you’re going
Spend time in the RE’s: Relax, Revisit, Reflect, Redo, REcharge!
Gravitate to REsponding vs. REacting!
“Freak out” when changes come up

Initiate anything new
As our Sun enters Virgo 23 August, this is equally a time we will ideally apply accurate discrimination when we decide to LISTEN. Yet, that completely means we need to be SILENT. Once again, we REmind you of the power of Lexigrams, as their messages urge to reach us with their wisdom through the very name of Mercury Retrograde.
