Mercury REtrograde in Leo: 14 July to 08 August 2012
Retrograde: Any planet’s reverse movement which results in an opposite direction to that of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun, or of the Moon around the Earth.
Known as the Trickster, Mercury lives up to his nickname especially when he cruises in reverse for a mere three weeks approximately three times per year. The collective undeniably senses the fluxes within our communications, movements, mechanisms of travel and electronics, as well as our thinking and mentality. When our Messenger is preparing to take his backwards trip, one all too often 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 because all human beings are required to take-up in these offerings for review. 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. Even as the station occurs just a couple days before the point he will retrograde from, the request for change and adaptability comes into collective play. Human error is the highest under the influence of these passages than during any other time of the year.
Adding up the total time of these periods within any given calendar year we find they are the equivalent of the actual time we spend sleeping- one more human requirement in order to function properly within the waking world. 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, retreat and by all means RElax! Yes, your eyes do not deceive you in how you can truly REceive REward within Mercury’s “tricks.” Being the norm that “no one pays attention much in the summer,” it couldn’t be a better time for REflection!

Reflection where The Lion reigns upon the center stage of our lives is now in the court’s order. It will be wise to examine how authority, creativity, dignity, and humility live in our HEART for this passage, and too, how this deeply affects our dear Mother EARTH. Honoring this request allows any soul to sharpen their insight and broaden perceptions to recognize that self-sufficiency is the key to what all of our futures hold. As you’ll find further down within what the Lexigrams of Mercury Retrograde have to share with us, the potential of the Leo energy to display in the ego should be courageously checked-in at every door.
For the Collective Horoscope
We have a quick and easy guide that pinpoints where Mercury’s energy’s will outwardly affect you, and where you are best to put your reflective and responsive cap on within.
Remember, your natal chart is the other vantage point you will wish to consider as well, where 12 to 01 deg Leo precisely sits.

Take special note of any natal planets you may have placed within these degrees, as these will also be energized by this transit, as well as other direct aspects from within your personal star map.

TO DO or NOT TO DO under Mercury REtrograde…
REmain in the eye of any possible storm around you… These handy tips can help bring ease over this upcoming period to allow personal success to be reaped!
*Expect CHANGE: in travel, routines, communications & schedules to occur suddenly
*Expect REpairs, and REdoings!
*Give yourself extra time to get where you’re going
*Spend time in the RE’s: RElax, REvisit, REflect, REtreat, REcharge!
*Have Plan B (and Plan C, D or E if necessary) ready to go
*Gravitate to REsponding vs. REacting!
*“Freak out” when changes come up
*Rush: speaking, driving, doing anything!
*Sign important documents
*Initiate or buy anything new that you wish to have long-term success with.
Keep in Mind…
Try not to question everything at this time. And if you do, REflect in the actions and thoughts leading up to your DOUBT, and tell it please DO BUT OUT BUD. Remember the Sun will come into Leos’ shining light upon 22 July, and will conjunct our backwards Messenger upon 28 July. REmaining in the REsponse vs. the REaction will always manifest the positive energy to attract back to your free-will at any time. The more we can be flexible, the better results we see. Sometimes, it is taking that pause for a SILENT LISTEN that saves us.
Approach: Began 27 June
The last day Mercury was at 01 deg Leo. You may have already started to see the things emerge that will be under Mercury’s review during this time.
Shadow: Ends 21 August
The next time Mercury reaches 12 deg Leo going Direct. Should any important decisions have to have gone forward under the Retrograde, this is the perfect time to rework them and make sure any errors are then corrected and cleared up.
