MERCURY RETROGRADE/AUG 12-SEPT 5//SHADOW WEEK AUG5-12 & SEPT 5-12
Well kids Mercury officially goes retrograde tonight at 7:01pMDT but the shadow week began last Sat, in case no one noticed. Remember to say what you mean and mean what you say and listen, not just hear. “Before you speak, ask yourself: Is it kind, is it necessary, is it true, does it improve the silence?” (Sai Baba) Unfortunately I’ve already opened my big mouth and uttered something that did not need to be said. Mercury rules all communications and hence your thinking, interacting and expressing. It is currently in Virgo, ruled by Mercury. Virgo is bent on detail, critical though not judgmental and needs to feel useful and to be of service to others. Mercury retrograde turns thoughts inward and can blur the external (where IS your other shoe??). This retrograde seems to started with a lot of computer, electronic issues. So don’t throw your iphone in the river. This too shall pass. Use it for reflection.
