What are you doing today? I know what I’ll be doing: Backing up my hard drive, taking my car for a tune-up and double-checking my campground reservations for this weekend. Why? Because Mercury goes retrograde tomorrow, and I want to be ready for it!
Ok, to be honest I probably won’t do any of the things I just mentioned — even though I know I should. That’s not because I’m a hypocrite, but because I’m a Gemini and frankly I’m not all that organized and I have too much on my plate. But I will try.
I lost my entire hard drive to a Mercury Retrograde mishap last year, and that really taught me a lesson — be prepared when the planet of communication takes a backward spin.
This time around Mercury is going retrograde in the sign of Leo from July 14 to August 8, which is all about creativity and bold expression. So in addition to preparing for those communication, travel and technology mishaps we always experience during MRx, we can also use this time to look back on creative hobbies we used to enjoy and get back to them.
Of course, Mercury Retrograde will affect every zodiac sign a bit differently. Read your horoscope to see how you can best prepare!
