Crossed wires and misunderstandings have been rife since Mercury went retrograde on July 14, but on August 7 the communication planet begins moving forward again, helping us all sort out any confusion that may have ensued. If paperwork has been lost or conversations misinterpreted, now is the time to untangle mixed messages!
Mercury’s periodic retrogrades are actually a great time to catch up on unfinished business, and get on top of correspondence and filing. If you’re still staring at a sea of paper or feeling overwhelmed by what you need to organize, be sure to -- at the very least -- finish up one thing on August 7.
Decisions and projects that have been delayed start moving again, albeit with changes that emerged during Mercury’s retrograde. Ultimately Mercury retrograde creates a slower pace in which improvements can be identified and implemented. Choices you made in the past three weeks may be reviewed and altered now.
People who have been unavailable or unreliable since mid-July now start to make contact and follow through, as Mercury moving forward puts everyone in a more social state of mind. Rescheduling also gets easier.
Though moving forward again, Mercury’s motion will still be quite slow until August 22, so the next two weeks offer plenty of opportunity to catch up, review and make up. Rather than pursue new business, relationship or family plans, finalize current projects.
