Yes, it’s that time again – Mercury goes retrograde tonight, 23.05 GMT and will be backtracking for the next three weeks. This means that Mercury turns into the mischief maker, especially as this time he turns around in truth freak Sagittarius and then early next week will slip back into the previous sign of Scorpio, a sign associated with hidden issues and deeper meanings. In essence:
Mercury – planet of information and communication. Under this umbrella we find language, everything connected to the written and spoken word, phones, emails, decisions, ideas, news and views.
Mercury retrograde – throws a large question mark into the mix, so be on your guard re (mis)understanding and (mis)interpretation, back up your work, and remember that language conceals (lies) as well as reveals (truth).
On a happier note we have a lovely Venus/Jupiter alignment in the air signs of Libra and Gemini, exact at 07.27 GMT Friday. So second half of the week is much lighter – fun and good news, although bear in mind that either some details will change again or you won’t enjoy the real results until Mercury gets everything back on track.
