Cross the T’s and Dot the I’s! Mercury, the Communicator is Retrograde in Virgo and will stay in retrograde until 5th September. So watch out for the detail in all of your communications and in any legal documentation that you enter into.
In pragmatic astrology the zodiac sign of Virgo, which is ruled by Mercury, is the sign of the discriminating perfectionist with an eye for detail and an instinctive understanding about ‘the way things ought to be done’. It is an energy which can dish out the criticism quite freely but takes it deeply personally if criticism is received by them. However, the strengths of this influence are many and varied.
Virgo is patient, graceful and very wise and if you use the analytical and inquisitive skills of this sign to help you cross the ‘T’s’ and dot the ‘I’s’ in any undertakings during this period you will benefit considerably. Employ patience and try to leave the natural feelings of frustration behind as you go about your daily business and remember, retaining your sense of humour at these times will keep you sane!
Cross the T’s and Dot the I’s! Mercury covers the whole spectrum of communication and getting from A to B, so if you have equipment that has been plodding along with a known fault, especially laptops, phones or anything to do with communication; get it fixed or if you have a car needing a service or you’ve noticed something not quite right with it, get it looked at or you could rue the day that you let it be!
When planets go into retrograde it gives us the opportunity to reflect and with Mercury we always have the chance to consider if we are going about things the right way. Are there alternatives we should be considering before we press that button? Are we happy with all the details before we commit to something substantial? Use this period wisely; check everything thoroughly and then make your decisions.
Cross the T’s and Dot the I’s! The Devil is in the Detail and Mercury will be retrograde in Virgo until 31st August when it goes retrograde in Leo until 5th September, so err on the side of caution over the next few weeks and enjoy the opportunity to make sure everything is as watertight as you can make it!
Until the next time, with love and light, Stephanie x
