Mercury Retrograde - August 24th - September 15th

Mercury is Exalted and Retrograding in his Own Sign Virgo for the next 3 weeks.

This can be a time of fluctuation between the extremes Pisces and Virgo, namely wanting to relax, contemplate, and drift along, but Virgo is forcing us to deal with nagging day-to-day material issues.

Mercury Retrograde brings our focus towards how to communicate (verbally and non-verbally), our understanding of how the world is assembled together and the patterns we see in it, and necessary research we have to do to make our lives run smoothly - how we manage our life.

This retrograde season is a great time for:

1. Tightening up your work routine

2. Being more articulate / less wordy in communication

3. Removing wasteful habits

4. Improving your workflow efficiency

5. Identifying and upgrading what is functioning well in day-to-day material life

The most important date is September 9th when Mercury conjuncts the Sun and they both Trine Jupiter in Taurus.

Re-organize what needs to be re-organized in your life - September 9th can be a very prosperous day for expanding knowledge, finances, and spirituality. Build up to this day. If you have any planets or house cusp points between 13° - 18° Capricorn, expect a burst of energy to that planet/cusp.

Aries - Intelligently pick your battles, legal issues, a good time for an intestinal detox, service mentality, upgrade your skill sets.
