Brace thy selves people. This is super-adequate warning that Mercury is going to be in Virgo – yes, Virgo – from July 25 until October 1. Someone needs to option a mini-series on this. It’s backing into the late degrees of Leo for a few days but really, this is VIRGO VISION TO THE MAX. We are all Virgos now.
So all right, practicality: The reason that Mercury is in Virgo for so long is that it will be Retrograde for some of this phase. Mercury gets into Virgo on July 25/26 and then turns Retro @11 Virgo on August 12/13 before turning Direct @28 Leo on September 5. Finally, after non-stop Precision Intensity Warp Core status for weeks on end, Mercury makes it into Libra on October 1.
What to know? Well, Mercury RULES Virgo so it is strong in Virgo. This means that if you deliberately plan to get your shizz together at a higher level than ever before during this time, it will work brilliantly. If you have a heap of writing, broadcast, media or bending the rules of Space and Time to make things happen, go for it.
But if you’re planning to waft along in a blur of slacker charm, beauty or anything remotely resembling complacency than get the hell up of your couch. There will be a Virgo wanting to vacuum underneath it.
This will also render the Solar Eclipse at the end of August (the American Eclipse) dramatic but perhaps also mysterious. Details may not be able to be clarified till, god, late September.
Is there a caution for all this? If you have to sign a contract in this time, go absolutely ape over the fine print and clause aspect of things. If possible, don’t tech up in this time either. More will be explored re this particularly fierce Retro in your Horoscopes and sign by sign, of course.
