Mercury is going retrograde……

Today Mercury – the communications planet – starts a retrograde cycle. This time around, it’s in the sign of Leo. I had an email from someone recently asking if Leos will feel this more than anyone else and the answer is yes – but also no! Reason being, we all have Leo somewhere in our chart. That’s just how astrology works. So today, your forecast looks at where you can expect to feel the Mercury retrograde cycle this time around.

MERCURY RETROGRADE IS HAPPENING IN… Your sign aka your Image and Self Zone. Yes, Mercury is actually going backwards in YOUR sign. In some ways, this is just one Giant Opportunity coming your way. More of that in a moment. First of all let’s deal with the downside of it. For one thing, Mercury going backwards in your sign is like having someone play your thoughts and your speech backwards. Do you know what I mean? Probably not. When Mercury goes backwards in your sign (and therefore over your Sun) it’s hard for other people to get what on earth you are talking about and for you to communicate your thoughts to them. And if you’re already feeling it, that’s normal too. The cycle can and often does kick in before it officially starts (if you want to know why, Google “Mercury storm” or “Mercury shadow period” and you should get some answers). The other downside is that if you’re travelling, you need to be VERY well organised because you’re likely to find yourself taking detours neither you nor your travel agent saw coming – take a spare pair of undies and a bottle of water! The good news about this cycle is that you get a chance to rethink, revisit, review. If you’re about to make a big decision – anything from making up or breaking up with someone, starting or leaving a job, buying or selling a home etc – you should find yourself getting the extra info you need to make a solid decision you feel secure with. PS This is also the IDEAL time to change your image. We’re talking superfical appearances – hair, weight, wardrobe, business cards, website etc. Want to work with (and not against!)
