Gemini 21 May - 21 Jun
Mercury, your planetary ruler, will be
retrograde from 13 August - 05 September.
Mercury turns retrograde three or four times
a year for around three weeks each time. When
Mercury is retrograde, there is a great likelihood of
misunderstandings and misinformation and a tendency
to try to do too many things at once and in the process,
you’re more likely to skip the fine details and the small print, to
act in haste, on incomplete or even inaccurate information or to take short cuts in your attempts to get ahead. However, this is a time to slow down, not speed up, a time to review, reassess and revise your dreams and schemes and if necessary, to move the goal posts.
This is not the time for acting on impulse especially when it comes to making major decisions or purchases. Since Mercury will be retrograde in the area of your solar chart associated with home, family and domestic matters it appears that this is the area of your life where patience and a wait-and-see approach may be required. Since misunderstandings are also more likely when Mercury is retrograde, this would be a good time to check with others to make sure you’re all following the same script.
