Mercury is our cosmic messenger who beckons us inward to a slower pace so we can access our reflective space and gleam the insights that are bursting forth which will inform our future days.
Here is Mercury Retrograde expert ROBERT WILKINSON from his Aquarius Papers sharing what Mercury Retrograding in Virgo might illuminate:
“Yes, it’s THAT time again! Mercury is radically slowing down, preparing to go stationary retrograde at 12 Virgo on at 6:01 pm PDT, 9:01 pm EDT on August 12, 2:01 am BST August 13. This has important implications for all signs…”
“I know there are many unfortunate things attributed to Mercury retrograde, but there are also many productive things that get done, connections that are made, and different angles of view glimpsed that make our understanding more complete and well rounded…”
“The coming retrograde will show us a new look at recent signals and information that we sent or received, and we’ll have opportunities to take a new look at what has been unveiled, or is being unveiled, in the Fiery new life we’re experiencing during this Summer of Grand Fire Trines!
“This one will give us multiple angles of understanding about how our past created our present, or how our present will create our future…”
“Mercury will show us what we have to prepare for, and why some things must be unveiled so we may move forward unencumbered by old inhibitions.
“As with all Mercury retrograde periods, this will give us a new look at recent signals and information that we sent or received, and things from the past will be reevaluated, re-examined, or understood differently.
“We can get a new look at ideas, ways we’re communicating and understanding what others are communicating to us, and get new insights into all things ruled by Virgo and Leo.
“We may find different ways or organizing or doing something, which will remind us that our expectations and yearnings will take solid form, if they are clear enough and we do what it takes to bring them to reality…”
“In the chart, we have a very strong Grand Fire Trine, a Moon conjunct Uranus, Mars tredecile Uranus, and a Cardinal T-square involving Venus, Jupiter, and Pluto integrating power so we may glimpse our fulfillment, avoid extremes to preserve our energy, and find ‘strife transcending and unattached outlooks’ as we soar above the ugliness of ‘industrial thinking.’
“Many will understand what cannot be propped up by the lower ego, and others will use their imagination to reclaim some opportunity they thought was lost.
“This is another awakening retrograde period that will give us inspired understanding, and allow us to see how our past, present, and future are a continuum of growth into our uniqueness…”
“We will gain an understanding we haven’t had before now related to actions we took then, and will be able to bring our ideas in line with our ability to act on those ideas in practical yet inspired ways.
“Coincidentally, Mars occupies the same degree as the Sun in the recent Lunar Eclipse, showing this RX period will activate the theme of ‘the joy and power of new beginnings’ in a big way!
“Consider the next 3 weeks as a review of how we’ve had to make things work more efficiently than we did in the past, which necessitated letting go of things blocking our progress…”
“This one helps us figure out the place and function of why things have happened the way they have. Open to new perspectives on all things related to Virgo and Leo people and experiences…”
“So welcome to many things being reviewed or coming back up to surface these next three weeks thanks to the retrograde quality of the time.
“Some will review past efforts to see what still needs to be integrated into the life, and/or there could be returns, rehearsals, or echoes of the past and its views, misunderstandings, dilemmas, paradoxes, and dualities.
“This one allows us to take a look back at how we’re using Virgo energy in our lives, see how our lives are effectively functioning (or not!), and review how we’ve been educated on a practical level since last August, trained for some group work since January, and left a lot behind since May.
“Despite the retrograde, it’s a great time for practical inspiration and inspired practicality, as well as seeing how to combine heart strength, creativity, and functionality while getting organized or reorganized related to a future that’s already clear…”
“For all of us, during the next several weeks the future that’s already rolling forward will slow a little so we can get a new look at crucial elements of the process we cannot afford to ignore.
“All of us will have a new understanding of multiple elements of our lives by late September, and capture a valuable or pleasing form of it during that time.
“This will be another important retrograde, where the past will be reviewed to see what has been or needs to be unveiled in order to come to a new expectancy of a greater, more loving and beautiful life.”

And the insightful DIVINE HARMONY shares:
“This is a great retrograde journey for doing personal work- be it shadow work, therapy, shamanic journeys and more. The insights we can get into ourselves and our stuck places can be positively golden IF we are wiling to turn within!
“…Mercury’s retrograde station is on 8/12- and he does so very closely opposite Neptune. The mind that wants to be rational, logical and clear can be confused by Neptune’s influence.
“Things are not as they seem with much going on behind the scenes.
“We have to be willing to ask a lot of questions and get honest with ourselves and others. Watch out for denial, delusion and deception… we need to be willing to access discernment AND our intuition to get to the Truth…”
“Of course we cannot look at this retrograde cycle without noticing the 2 Mercury/Mars conjunctions (9/3 and 9/16- the first in Leo, the last in Virgo).
“Mercury/Mars is fiery and feisty. This can be great for speaking up, initiating actions and being decisive- but it can also exacerbate tendencies to impulsivity, reactivity, selfishness and aggression.
“It’s interesting to note that Mercury triggers the Solar Eclipse degree on 7/24, 9/2 and 9/7- while Mars triggers it on 9/3. With the exact Mercury/Mars conjunction on 9/3 we have these two triggering the eclipse in significant ways.
“Pay close attention to what you hear, say or read during this period of time. The Truth has a way of coming out and it may not be pretty. The good news is that the Truth can set you free– so if you are willing to face the Truth you can find yourself moving through major transformation right now!
“… I leave you with the Star Sparks meditations for the degrees of Mercury station retrograde on 8/12 …

Virgo 12 : A dog sniffing a dead animal
“Being hyper-aware of whatever component or element is lurking, is lingering, is waiting it’s chance to pounce, in order to ruin everything.
“Being given over to the soul mood of extra-careful preparation and plans, in attempting to get around the messy, smelly, entangling, and engulfing parts of life.
“Trying extra hard to be good, to be on top of things. Identifying with sober responsible roles and cycles.
“Extroverting into a mind set of doing whatever it takes to neutralize the negative, and optimize the positive.
“The dual mind generating what it fears and trying to outwit itself. When we do prepare and take extra care and make sure, we function with less wobble and more precision. Yet we also subtly undermine everything we’re trying to do.
“The subconscious mind is working overtime here to constellate shadow, to bring up the very things the conscious mind wants out of the way.
“In essence, we circulate at too shallow a level. We end up going against the depths and working for surfaces.
“All because we allowed ourselves in the first place to believe the petty notion that our life should work and that our primary concern should be to make sure that it works.
“Such an innocuous idea casting such a great shadow. We learn eventually that holding anything in our mind as a model of perfection, an ideal of how it all should look is the great mistake. It brings on all the compulsive behaviors. We get distracted into trying so hard to watch the picture.
“Once we recognize that we are up against ourselves and our own mental projections, we can perhaps break through to the place of admitting that one side of mind is crazily doubtful and fear-struck and the other side is captured by the need to take care of and reassure that terribly traumatized side of us.
“We can cultivate a third aspect. This one appreciates the sensation, and the efforts to keep life dancing to a fine time.
“But the third voice is spacious and open and serene and no longer pushing it. “
