“New ways of thinking about familiar things can release new energies and make all manner of things possible.” Charles Handy
Mercury stations retrograde at 12 degrees of Leo on July 14th at 10:16 PM EDT and does not resume direct motion again until Aug 8.
Mercury retrograde periods provide excellent timing to pause and reflect on our perspectives. Often there is a need to expand the habitual way we think about things to allow for different kinds of possibilities, opportunities and outcomes. These three weeks are excellent for moving in that direction- revisit, review and revise your perspectives if necessary.
Retrograde Mercury can have a trickster nature to it also so be sure to leave more time for traveling, be more vigilant about the erratic nature of other people’s driving, avoid rushing and double check any communications that seem to have gone awry rather than assuming that something intentional has occurred.
