August brings with it a Mercury retrograde starting August 12th in earth sign Virgo. A planet is called retrograde when it appears to be moving backward; it isn’t actually moving backward, it only looks that way from our view here on Earth.

You may need to work on balancing work and play and making adequate time for both so you’re not being pulled too much in one direction or the other. Mercury retrogrades in Leo for the first week of September, and we can start getting back to normal mid-September.
