Mercury turns retrograde today in one of the signs that it rules (Virgo), and will remain retrograde until September 5th, dear Aries. This cycle begins in your work and health sector and ends in your romance and creativity house, affecting projects, thoughts, and activities related to these life departments. There may be some inconveniences, slowdowns, delays, or turnarounds during this cycle, but these can lead to significant improvements and edits. You may be taking a second look at a previous health issue or discovering the need to rework a project, task, or job. Redoing work that you previously thought was completed may be required now. It’s not the ideal time for finding new work, but it’s good for attention to work in progress and for renewing old projects. Be as transparent as possible with coworkers or employees now, as misunderstandings, and delays that can result from them, are more likely to occur now. It’s an excellent time for researching health and nutrition programs, as well as job skills and opportunities. You might find that the refinements you make now will be very valuable later. Today’s Moon in Aries is energizing and invigorating, especially as it gets support from the Sun and Saturn, motivating you to take care of business.
Mercury turns retrograde today and will stay so until September 5th, dear Taurus. This retrograde cycle occurs in one of the signs that Mercury rules (Virgo). Because it harmonizes with your sign, you may feel it a little less than others, but there can nevertheless be some inconveniences, turnarounds, or delays related to romance, creative projects, and finances. You may need to revisit old problems or wait for an answer to a question that keeps you in a state of limbo. However, this can also be a great chance to catch up in other areas of life and to do some rethinking of matters. There may be the need to revisit old issues with your children or lover, or there could be some communication problems with the same. People from the past tend to come back or become a mental or emotional focus. It’s probably not the best time to launch a new creative project, but it’s a good time for reworking an existing one. Same goes for romance! Slow down and tend to those things you’ve passed over in haste. This is a time for finding new ways to express yourself! The Moon spends the day in your privacy sector, boosting your needs for rest and relaxation, as well as some level of anonymity.
Mercury begins its retrograde journey today, dear Gemini, and this cycle lasts until September 5th. This can serve to sway your thinking and change your mind about past decisions as it affords you the opportunity to see things from a different perspective. At first, you may feel inconvenienced as delays or misunderstandings seem to happen more frequently than usual. However, these can open your mind to new ways of expressing yourself and can alert you to problem areas that need revision, review, and editing. Think in terms of evaluation and development rather than pushing something entirely new. Mercury is your ruler, and during this cycle, you may have some problems with clarity and decision making. You may want to put off major decision-making regarding new endeavors in home improvement, moving, and family matters just for the time being until you have everything sorted. However, this is a good cycle in which to re-organize your home or to rethink living arrangements. Today is strengthening for friendships and general camaraderie despite some tendency for confusion and misunderstandings.
Mercury’s retrograde cycle begins today, dear Cancer, and this gives you an approximately three-week window in which to review your options or rethink plans related to learning, communicating, transportation, and making contacts or connections. You might experience some delays due to misunderstood communications, transportation problems or repairs, and possibly computer-related difficulties. Schooling matters may not go exactly as expected but speed bumps encountered now are unlikely to be serious ones, merely inconvenient. In fact, because of them, you might discover new and improved ways of making your connections — ways that you may not have considered otherwise. It would be wise to double-check your work and communications before submitting or sending them off and to allow extra time to make it to appointments, as some forgetfulness is possible now. However, it’s a good time for journaling and reworking studies and projects. You might enjoy renewing or recycling old ideas and interests. Today, the Moon gets a boost from the Sun and Saturn, and you can feel particularly motivated to work on a project or responsibility.
Mercury begins its retrograde journey today, dear Leo, and during this cycle that lasts until September 5th, you may encounter the need to review financial affairs, income, and budgets. This is preferable to throwing yourself into new commitments or agreements which may lose their appeal or glamor at a later date. There can be a change of mind or interest, possibly even a bit of regret when it comes to what’s said or begun now and in recent days. Mercury begins its apparent backward turn in the sign of Virgo and your sector of resources now but then retreats into your sign on the 31st for less than a week before turning direct again. Take the time to re-think your sources of income and how you spend your money during this period. Some money-making ideas or ventures may go on hold due to circumstances beyond your control. However, this can prompt you to find new ways of doing things that work wonders for you. Come at old problems from a new direction or perspective. Today’s Moon harmonizes with the Sun in your sign and with Saturn as well, motivating you to be productive, particularly with creative things.
Mercury turns retrograde today, dear Virgo, and for all signs, there can be some confusion now and until September 5th regarding communications and transportation. However, for much of this cycle (until the 31st), Mercury is retrograde in your sign, and of course, Mercury is also your planetary ruler, making this retrograde period especially personal for you! You may feel misunderstood at times during this period, and you should take a little extra time to make sure you’re clear in your communications. Career matters may need a second look. Decision making turns inward during this cycle, and intuition tends to reign over pure logic. You are looking at the world through different filters, and you’re likely to come up with some compelling inner revelations as a result. It may be difficult to communicate them under this influence, but this is just fine at the moment. It’s is a time of heightened spiritual awareness that favors meditation, reworking old plans, and reviewing past work. While today can be a little confusing as you meet with small inconveniences, you tend to feel very supported on an emotional level.
Mercury stations and turns retrograde today, dear Libra, which can point to a period, lasting until September 5th, of some inconvenient delays or turnarounds. Trusting your instincts may not be as straightforward as usual, and you may be looking back a lot more than you are looking forward. Past mistakes can crop up for your attention. You may also experience some interruptions or a state of limbo on legal, publishing, travel, or educational matters. Your thinking is more spiritual and less factual which can be a clear asset if applied to the right things. You can quite easily put your foot in your mouth, however, or reveal something that you’d prefer to remain hidden. It’s a good cycle for redoing and refining work that is already underway, for journaling, and for backtracking over the past to find answers. Minor breaks in the mechanical aspects of communication can reconnect you to other perfectly valid means of communication. In other words, certain delays can be blessings in disguise now! The Moon picks up supportive aspects today and boosts your relationships with additional strength and conviction.
Mercury turns retrograde in the sign of Virgo today, dear Scorpio, and will continue to move in this apparent backward motion until September 5th. The typical problems associated with retrograde Mercury are emphasized when Mercury is retrograde in this logical, detail-oriented sign. This transit will affect your sector of friends and contributions, and later, your sector of career and reputation. Friendships may involve some backtracking or slow-downs during this time. There can be the need to review debts and obligations or to reassess a relationship. You’d be wise to be more alert than usual when it comes to dealings with friends and groups, as well as business income and dealings with business associates. Some of you could meet an old friend during this cycle. Some of the seeds you recently planted regarding long-term goals are likely to need review or revision. Fortunately, this is a great period for looking back and seeing things in a new way. Today is potentially a little disorienting at times, but quite excellent for motivation to succeed and excel in your work.
Mercury turns retrograde today, dear Sagittarius, and will remain retrograde until September 5th. This cycle is a useful one for catching up by slowing down some of the areas of your life that have become too rushed! At first, you may see this slowing down as annoying and inconvenient before adjusting to the shift. Until the 31st, this retrograde occurs in your career and reputation sector, and you might experience more than usual delays or confusion regarding goals, career choices, and projects. Past matters and projects might be rehashed or recycled and circulated. There can be some cooling off or slow developments in a close relationship. While it’s a positive time for refining long-term goals and career projects, there can be some confusion surrounding business plans or communications. Extra care should be exercised when communicating with the public, superiors, associates, and partners. Keep in mind that information received or perceived today may be emotionally biased or incomplete. Overall, however, retrograde Mercury cycles are not inherently negative. In fact, they are excellent for refining projects that are already underway and for doing substantial rethinking. Today is fantastic, however, for finding useful channels to express your feelings and affections.
Mercury’s retrograde turn can point to some fuzziness or confused directions today, dear Capricorn. However, the retrograde cycle itself, lasting until September 5th, is a good time for looking at past decisions and projects with a new eye. There can be inconveniences and slowdowns that may be blessings in disguise as you turn your attention to problems you didn’t know existed but that, when corrected, help you tremendously. While retrograde Mercury phenomena apply to all signs, this particular cycle shouldn’t be especially hard for you. Even so, there can be issues with delayed travel or travel plans, publishing delays or redos, or confusing issues surrounding higher education. Work projects may need some review, and health matters might require some backtracking before pushing ahead. Take special care when it comes to presenting ideas, writing letters and emails, and detail work. You may not be seeing the whole picture, but you might also find a new way of looking at a matter that brings about creative results. A Moon-Sun-Saturn grand trine enlivens your emotional world today.
Mercury turns retrograde today and will move in this apparent backward motion until September 5th, dear Aquarius. Much of this retrograde period, until the 31st, it occurs in your solar eighth house, and you can find yourself backtracking in the areas of shared finances, intimate relationships, and matters of trust, after which your one-to-one relationships are affected most. This is a time of introspection and review. Throughout the cycle, creative projects and romance are Mercury-ruled areas that require some rethinking and reorganizing. Decision-making is not straightforward as you search within for answers and need more time to draw conclusions. This period is especially strong, however, for reviewing joint finances and debts as well as for analyzing past decisions and projects. Rather than taking out new loans, focus on working with what you have. This energy can also play out on an intimate level, and you may find yourself frequently turning to the past to understand the present better, and this rumination can be particularly useful as long as you avoid going overboard with it! Today brings some confusion but is nevertheless a strengthening time for friendships and camaraderie.
Mercury begins its retrograde period today that lasts until September 5th, dear Pisces. Until the 31st, it impacts your close personal relationships most, but it can also point to delays and turnarounds related to family, home life, and later, work matters. You may be looking back or turning to the past in some manner, whether this is about rehashing old topics or revisiting a previous relationship. Some of the things you’ve started or communicated recently might need some touching up. It’s an excellent time to revise, review, and reorganize as you see things you may have missed because you were going too fast or because you were too busy to notice the first time around. Communications can be muddled today and tomorrow, but delays can also help you to understand your situation better. As well, today’s energies are quite excellent for motivation to improve your work or money situation. You can feel inspired by a past project that now seems more appealing.

Strong Signs, Elements, Modes
BALANCE OF SIGNS
Initiating, pioneering energy. Independent, bold, courageous, assertive, fiery, inspirational, direct, decisive. Can be egotistical, impulsive, impatient, aggressive, lacking subtlety.
Self-confident, generous, warm-hearted, powerful leader, dramatic. Can be overly proud, vain, extravagant, arrogant.
BALANCE OF ELEMENTS
Fire is enthusiastic, dynamic, and spontaneous, but lacks reflection. We are more courageous and adventurous now, with a tendency to act before thinking. There is little concern about what happened in the past. We are competitive and possibly impatient or bored easily.
We may have a difficult time being objective or detached. We may not be especially communicative.
BALANCE OF MODES
The modes are balanced.
LUNAR PHASE: DISSEMINATING
Moon 135 to 90 degrees behind the Sun.
Sharing our knowledge with the world is a major motivation at this stage. We believe we have gained much knowledge and wisdom through our experiences, and want to ensure others have the benefit as well.
The following aspects (major only) and positions are at noon (EDT) on August 12th:
Note that when an aspect is applying, it has not yet happened but is within orb – it’s pending. When an aspect is separating, it has already happened/perfected and is moving away from the aspect. Depending on the speed of the planet/body involved, the aspect will have perfected–or will perfect–in a matter of hours (often the case with the Moon), days, months, and possibly years in the case of the very slow-moving outer planets and bodies.
Note that the Moon moves at a rate of approximately one degree every 2 hours, so that if an aspect involving the Moon is applying and has an orb of 5 degrees, the aspect will perfect (be exact) in about 10 hours. If the Moon is separating from an aspect with an orb of 2 degrees, it has already formed said aspect approximately 4 hours ago (since the following are positions at noon today, then it would have occurred at about 8 AM today).
**I suggest paying close attention to applying aspects. The energy of the aspect builds as it gets closer to exact. Once an aspect involving inner planets has happened, it’s over. Separating aspects are good to know for context, but in terms of energy that is with us today, applying aspects are most important. (This is the case for daily astrology influences involving inner planets, which pass quickly, and not natal astrology aspects, which are with us for a lifetime).
