Sagittarius 22 Nov - 21 Dec
Mercury, the messenger of the gods
and planet associated with communication,
travel and those things that transmits
people, ideas and things from one place to
another, 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 greater 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, you’re also more likely 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.
Since Mercury will be retrograde in the zone of your solar chart associated with your work, vocation and dealings with those in positions of authority and influence, these are the areas where communication problems, misunderstandings and delays are most likely to occur. Therefore, make sure to leave enough slack in your schedule for delays and plenty of time to get from A to B. Also, make sure you’re up to date, informed and singing from the same hymn sheet as everyone else and if you find yourself in the spotlight or centerstage, be sure to rehearse your lines beforehand.
Working and emotional relations are likely to get complicated if you act in haste or incomplete information so resist the temptation to read between the lines and consider taking a wait and see position even if some of those around you are suing ultimatums running about like headless chickens.
