Hello lovely ones and I hope you are riding out the cosmic currents of August!
Just to add a little more cosmic action to this month Mercury, planet ruling our mind, communication, travel and more...goes officially retrograde in Virgo tomorrow Saturday 12th August 2017.
Now, as many of you probably know by now, Soulstrology says that the mercury retrograde shadow period is very significant and this particular Mercury retrograde shadow started on July 24th at 29 degrees of Leo, which incidentally is the same degree as the August 21 solar eclipse...which is no cosmic coincidence!
Even though the official mercury retrograde starts at 11 degrees Virgo Soulstrology says that we must look at where we have from 29 degrees of Leo to 11 degrees of Virgo in our unique natal charts.
The emphasis is on the Virgo ruled part of our charts, and specifically between 1 - 11 degrees of Virgo, but the Leo part of our charts is also under cosmic review, particularly with the Leo solar eclipse in less than ten days.
Use the free chart calculator on my site to see where you have Virgo ruling your chart (and specifically 1 - 11 degrees) but also see where you have 29 degrees of Leo as the life areas ruled by that part of your chart are also up for review.
I will write more about the Leo element of this Mercury retrograde and the significance to the upcoming solar eclipse and give you all a detailed guide to both soon (next weekend!)
But for now, here is the Soulstrology guide to this Mercury Retrograde in Virgo.
Remember these are the life areas which may be impacted by this Mercury retrograde and which are up for review and resetting. Do everything RE with regards to these areas of life.
