Mercury Retrograde 23 August 2023

On the 23 August, Mercury goes Retrograde in the Earth sign of Virgo, also marking the beginning of the Virgo season.

A Mercury Retrograde is always a perfect time for introspection and slowing things down. And with seven (7) planets (Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) now in Retrograde, things will sloooooooooooooooooow waaaaaaaaaaay down…

Mercury is the plant of the mind, how we think, speak, communicate and learn. When the planet is in the Earth sign Virgo, it brings forward intellect, high attention to detail, analysing the smallest details and has the drive to create efficiency.

Virgo is the 6th zodiac sign and governs the 6th house of work, service, health and daily routines. Virgo is the perfectionist who uses a practice approach to bring order to chaos.

The transit will ask us to self-analyse and self-edit our conscious thoughts and feelings, allowing us to observe our mental state and where we are at with our work, health and daily routines. It is a perfect time to….

  • Take time out for yourself to slow down and self-reflect
  • Re-evaluate everything that no longer serves you, decluttering and letting that shit gooooo
  • Connect with your intuition/higher self and fine-tune your attention to detail
  • Think before speaking! Feel your way through your words instead of verbal vomiting. Words are a powerful tool that can either break things or build things.
Sooooooooo, Re-flect, Re-new, Re-lax, Rest, slow down and heal 🌷 Be gentle and kind to yourself and others around you 💟
