Mercury Retrograde August 2017, Mercury Retrograde 2017 Meaning, Mercury Retrograde 2017 Guide, Mercury Retrograde 2017 Dates, Mercury Retrograde Sun Signs, Mercury Retrograde 2018, Mercury Retrograde Crystals, How Mercury Retrograde will affect your Star sign of the Zodiac, How to make the most of Mercury retrograde, When is the next Mercury Retrograde 2017?

August 12, 2017 Mercury Retrograde at 11 degrees of Virgo. The planet Mercury will Retrograde at 11 degrees of Virgo on August 12 and station direct on September 5, 2017 at 28 degrees Leo.

During Mercury retrograde through the sign of Virgo the main theme will be communication, facts and details, but they won’t be so easily found. Life is stuck in a clouded bubble. With Virgo, they want only the truth, if you please. Virgo wants you to prove it to them and we all know they can be very skeptical, lol. Mercury is known as the Messenger of the Gods and governs over all forms of communication, commerce, writing and speech.

Since Mercury is the planetary ruler of Virgo ♍️and Gemini ♊️anyone with their Sun, Moon or ascendant in these star signs could be effected the most by this phase of Mercury retrograde.

Virgo is an intellectual and very analytical earth sign who wants the facts first and foremost. At this time expect people to be much more critical and finicky about life and situations in general. Since Virgo is the natural ruler of the 6th house in the zodiac which rules work and health, much of the challenges associated with Mercury retrograde could be associated with these areas of your life.

This is really a time when you must prove the validity of your work and speech. The proof is in the pudding and Virgo wants to analyze every single word and detail to get to the truth of the matter. During this time it is not advisable to start anything new, majorly important such as getting married, signing legal documents, contracts or a lease.

The stars are very busy right now all having a sort of cosmic dance, maybe it’s an Argentine Tango, lol. The events in the world are confusing and appear that we are all caught up in a web of lies and under a thick veil of illusion, much like a three ringed circus. Mercury Retrograde has got a real bad reputation, but it doesn’t have to be something to fear. Just keep a positive attitude and use Mercury Retrograde to your advantage.

Make the best of a potentially challenging situation by organizing the clutter in your life. It could be so releasing and you will feel ready to accept new positive vibes a little later on down the road. Don’t panic or freak out about some stupid meme on Facebook, wake up, give your head a shake and focus on yourself! 

❗️ Seek the truth from alternative and non-mainstream news websites but don’t rely on one source for your information. That is, if you can handle the truth.

Finish up the stuff you have already on your plate, research, be prepared for possible delays. Most of all, don't make any sudden or important life changing decisions right now, it is not a favorable time. It is also not a good time for surgery, if possible reschedule and if you must have surgery do not have it on a Full Moon such as on September 5-6th. The chance of delays, complications, more pain, a long recovery and extra bleeding could be the result of a surgery at this time.

Mercury’s energy is accelerated by the Eclipse’s in August adding a sense of urgency to the mix. You may feel like doing something desperate with your life or a relationship, but you can’t seem to get moving, life is on pause. Relationships with co-workers or the boss could feel different, weird or strained.

There could be electronic and computer snafus revolving around the workplace at this time as well or expected drama with coworkers. People may be more on edge, moody or easily agitated, so mind what you say and how you say it or BOOM, the haggis is in the fire for sure! Resist the urge to stand up to the boss or to talk back rudely to your coworkers/superior as it can come back to bite you on your butt later.

The fact is that all information is clouded or could be misinterpreted at this time. Don’t believe everything you see on the news and especially on social media sites such as Facebook. Most of it will be misleading, false, propaganda, fear mongering or just plain garbage. Keep your eyes open for facts because there is a smokescreen over the cosmos and over the world. Makes me wonder what is really going on that we don’t know about…

Mercury will retrograde back into the sign of Leo briefly that could elevate any drama going on. Not to worry though, this will all be over sooner than later when Mercury goes direct on September 5th. Life will slowly begin to get back to normal and pick up speed.

What does Mercury Retrograde mean?

Is Mercury Retrograde real? Mercury retrograde is when the planet Mercury appears to slow down, go backwards in the sky, slow down and begin to move forward again. This is only an optical illusion that happens three to four times every year for approximately three weeks at a time per cycle. Mercury retrograde is a real visual phenomenon recognized by astrophysicists but the planet itself does not actually move backwards, again it is an optical illusion.  

Mercury retrograde is what astrologers refer to as a transit and is a classic example of Astrology in its simplest form. It was said in ancient times that the planets in the sky affect us here on earth, "As above, so below". This is a pattern in Astrology and your personal horoscope.

The planet Mercury takes approximately 88 days to travel through the 12 signs of the zodiac. In astrology, Mercury is the ruling planet of the zodiac signs Virgo and Gemini which represents all forms of communication, speech, reasoning, travel and writing. Mercury also rules over technology, electronics, social media, music and short trips.

All the planets go in retrograde motion during their transits through our solar system. Like all planetary transits in astrology, Mercury retrograde will only affect you if you have these signs, planets and degrees in your horoscope. Each time Mercury goes retrograde through a sign it influences us with the characteristics of that zodiac sign. When Mercury is retrograde in Gemini or Virgo it affects our speech, communications and generally makes people more critical than at other times.

 

Mercury Retrograde 2017 Guide

Mercury Retrograde 2017 Guide, What to expect when Mercury is Retrograde, During Mercury Retrograde you can expect cancellations, missed or garbled messages, texts, phone calls, communication breakdowns, vehicle, electronic, computer and device problems. If you purchase a vehicle, computer, device or electronic item at this time you may find the item to be faulty or a lemon. Save your money. Travel plans are more prone to delays or complications and major moves may be regretted later.

Mercury retrograde also brings out con artists, liars and thieves. Keep this in mind at this time and if it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Beware of scams, shady sounding deals or someone promising you the Moon. You may notice for yourself that you experience these things around you. Watch for computers, electronics and vehicles not operating properly, cancelled appointments and people promising more than they can deliver. Watch what you say during this time.

Mercury Retrograde 2017 Shadow

Mercury Retrograde has what is known as a shadow zone. When Mercury is in its shadow, the effects of a retrograde are active, but to a lesser degree. If you are an astro nerd such as myself, you will wait to begin anything important until after Mercury has traveled beyond its shadow phase on September 20th when it has reached 12 degrees of Virgo.

Mercury has what is known as a shadow phase when it is already slowing down to retrograde and slowly getting back to full speed. During the shadow zone time, the effects of a Mercury retrograde are weaker but still in the background.

You must wait until Mercury reaches the degree and sign which it entered the retrograde period to be extra sure. Mercury stations direct on September 5, 2017 at 28 degrees Leo, the same sign and degree as the solar eclipse on August 21st. Mercury is out of shadow phase on September 20, 2017.

 

Making the Best of Mercury Retrograde 😄

During a retrograde transit there is a higher than average chance of missed appointments, problems associated with communications, travel chaos, computer crash’s, electronic or mechanical problems and general confusion, for sure. That said, you can turn it around and make lemonade out of lemons!

During a Mercury retrograde cycle, often something you lost long ago suddenly is found or comes back to you. It could be anything really like a piece of jewelry you stuffed in the pocket of your sweater months ago sparkling and twinkling to get your attention. I am here! Sometimes it is a lost love or old flame trying to rekindle the fire where you last left off.

Mercury retrograde is also actually a fantastic time to do research, for a redo or to finish up projects you have already begun. Before Mercury goes retrograde, back up your files on your computer, double-check your appointments, travel plans and commitments.

Mercury retrograde can be easy if you re-calibrate and restructure the things in your life holding you back. Before Mercury goes retrograde, back up all your files on your computer and double-check all your appointments and commitments. You can easily survive Mercury retrograde by reviewing and analyzing your life.

😊Are you happy with the direction it is taking? Really think about it and make improvements. Reorganize and reduce your material clutter. Give old items to charity. Rewrite your bio and replace old photos on social media sites. Double-check all travel plans. Give yourself plenty of time to get where you want to go. Complete projects that you have already started. Clean your living space and environment. Take a class or a new course of study. Read everything you sign, twice and above all, go with the flow because everything happens for reason.

This puts a big emphasis on the earth 🌎 signs, which shifts our focus to earthly matters, hard work and logical thinking. Mercury in Virgo is like a voice of reason pushing you towards logical thinking, reasoning, studies and being frugal.

You can gain the most benefit from this by working hard towards your goals. Mercury is encouraging and nudging us towards a more stable way of life now. Life can't be a party all the time, sometimes you just have work to get the job done. This is reality and it is what it is. Life will begin to get back to normal; however it is best to wait until Mercury leaves its shadow phase on September 20th when it reaches 11 degrees of Virgo to be extra sure. Business, travel and communications will run much smoother at that time.
