Mercury Retrograde in Leo July 2018

Grand Visions
July 26 2018 until Aug 19 2018

On July 26, 2018, Mercury will station retrograde at 23°27′ of Leo, staying retrograde until August 18, when Mercury will station direct at 11°31′ of Leo

A very challenging T-square aspect pattern on that day between the Sun, Mars and Uranus will exacerbate the standard Mercury retrograde problems like communication misunderstanding and the breakdown of mechanical and electrical machines. Do not sign contracts, nor buy new items, nor begin new projects. It is an excellent time to plan, research, and prepare for something that will happen later.

Mercury in Leo is loud and proud. If Mercury normally deals best when in rational, objective signs, when in Leo, Mercury is instead entangled deep into our hearts, begging to express that which beats from within.

 Key aspects made during the Mercury retrograde in Leo will lead us in two disparate directions. A series of squares to Jupiter in Scorpio are likely to lead us in the direction of over-optimistic, grand thinking, which may ultimately leave us big on vision and scant on details. Mercury squares Jupiter in Scorpio July 9, August 10, and August 27

Mercury enters the retrograde zone on July 7, 2018 at 11°31′ Leo. Now until Mercury stationary retrograde is called the first shadow period. During this time you will get an idea of the thinking, communication or transport issues that will arise during the retrograde phase.

Don’t make any important moves when Mercury is retrograde. Nothing will be settled successfully for the future during these periods anyway – you will find it nearly impossible to nail down a plan. During a retrograde period, it is hard to get decisions from others. Even if a decision is made, it will be subject to change, either just after Mercury turns to direct motion or much later.

Mercury retrograde periods would not be good times to do anything involving communications, such as launch a magazine, website, or an advertising or publicity campaign. It is also considered poor times to launch any new endeavors, even if they are not related to the communications industries.
