Mercury Retrograde in Virgo: August 12 – September 5
Take Care with Details
Under the influence of Mercury retrograde in Virgo, and depending on how it affects your personal birth chart, your normal laser-like focus may be diminished. Details may escape your attention and be overwhelming. You might not be able to sift and sort through information with any efficiency.
With your decreased powers of analysis and discrimination, you might also have a tendency to be critical, or to get too hung up on the details and lose sight of the big picture.
Re-Editing and Re-Doing
You might be drawn to math and science, or academic research projects that require logic, precision and attention to detail so this will be testing at this time. This transit is ideal for re-editing and any kind of refining or adjusting the process.
Be careful not to hurt others’ feelings with your sharp tongue — you might just be trying to help with your truthful observations, but there may be a more sensitive way to get your point across!
Perfectionism could plague you now, and in your agony over “getting it right” you might suffer from nervous anxiety or insomnia. Cut yourself some slack — you’re probably being too hard on yourself.
