Mercury Retrograde on August 23 through September 15th. Mercury has been slowing down for 2 weeks. It’s time to clear out the desk and the emails that have been collected over the summer and finish the paperwork that you started weeks ago. Mercury in Virgo rules the intestines so empty out what no longer serves you. Everyone is busy Mercury retrograde forces us to slow down and review and redo projects. This retrograde has a bit more confusion added because it is also in opposition to Saturn in Pisces. Try to give yourself and others a break!
