Imagine you are cruising at a speed of 60 miles and hour, and suddenly you put your car in reverse. That’s not going to be a smooth transition for you. Similarly, when Mercury stations Retrograde, this massive planet of communication, travel and thought, changes direction, lots of moving parts—our plans, hasty mechanical repairs, edgy communications from the past—these energies whose imprints are stores in the orbit of Mercury, they all have to be gathered in and carried into Mercury’s new trajectory, whether that trajectory be direct or retrograde. A bit like a huge snow globe, with Mercury in the center, when that planet suddenly changes direction, all those energies get shaken up, and the dust take several day to settle.
August 23—September 15: During Mercury in Virgo's retrograde period, our healing journey may make some unexpected turns. Cultivate your inner healer, and divine the medicines you need for wellbeing to take hold.
December 12—January 1, 2024: Mercury in Capricorn retrogrades again at the year's end, and highlights restructuring behind the scenes. Make the next steps on your holy path with determination. Unknown blessings may be on their way.
