MERCURY Retrograde 7/14-8/07/12

July 12, 2012

Our next Mercury retrograde period begins this Saturday night, July 14, at about 8:12 p.m. MDT. In Vedic Astrology, this occurs in the water sign of Cancer, a sign of sensitive emotions. With Mercury representing communications, some verbal interactions (or email) that occur in this period, could seem more emotionally charged than usual.  As always, Mercury retrograde gives us plenty of “opportunity” to be misunderstood! It’s important now to be more careful in analyzing any contracts one has to sign.

Adding to this transit, will be a period Mercury combust the Sun as well, thus more afflictions for this planet. Combustion period is from July 21st – August 5th.

Those with Virgo or Gemini Ascendants or Moon signs will feel it the most. When a planet is combust, those whose charts are ruled by it, may feel and act more restless, irritable, upset, and easily angered or annoyed than normal.  Thus you (and your friends!) have been warned to try and moderate those impulses. 

Retrograde ends for Mercury on August 7th at 23:36 MDT.

 In other starry news for July, the Sun joins Mercury in Cancer on July 15th.

Venus will enter Gemini on July 31st and transit in this air sign until August 31st.    

To discover what all this means for your own individual chart, life and times, please contact me for a natal or yearly reading.
