Friday, July 13 – Mercury Retrograde in Leo – July 13 to August 8.
Mercury retrogrades three times a year on average (sometimes four times in a year), so it’s quite possible you already know the standard drill that goes along with this transit. Mercury, the planet of communication, can interrupt messages, communications, even the way in which our messages are conveyed by the recipient(s). It’s not advised to purchase expensive items or anything electronic, as it’s likely you’ll be dissatisfied or it simply won’t work. Signing contracts is also a no-no when it comes to this transit. As I like to think, anything worth committing to should still be available in three weeks, and if not, then maybe it wasn’t really meant to be in the first place.
