“The Cosmic Instant Messenger” Mercury dims its lights in Energy Star power saver mode from August 2nd through 26th and it starts out in Virgo, retrograding back into Leo. Do-overs, revisions and re-considerations are commonplace when Mercury retrogrades, a phenomenon that happens 3-4 times a year. Travel also becomes a little tricky so remember to check, recheck and check again and do allow yourself some extra time to get from point A to point B. Have a plan “B” for back-up in place, too. Mercury has a lot to do with moving parts, too so remember to back-up your hard-drive and take care of your car so as to avoid the possibility of mechanical problems or hardware snafus. Better to be safe than sorry! On the plus side, Mercury retrograde has been known to bring people back from the past to settle unresolved issues. Who says you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression? Just make certain not to repeat the same mistakes or tread water because stagnation is something that the universe just cannot stand! Move it, sister! Shit or get off the pot.
Because Mercury retrogrades in helpful Virgo we must remember to be of service of others. Too often we get super busy and sidetracked on meeting our own needs that we can easily lose sight of those who may rely and depend on us. Ask a Virgo how to do something right and you’ll get the best answer every time.
