This tarotscope was written in the shadow of another Mercury Retrograde.
Mercury stations retrograde officially on August 12th in Virgo until finally going direct on
September 5th in Leo. As per usual, back up your tech, take extra precautions when traveling, and avoid signing contracts if you can.
Usually, I can tell a retrograde is coming just on the tarotscopes I pull for everyone but this month is different. This month is largely positive for most people and it does reflect a focus on love and relationships which supports the energy of a super Venus (the planet of love and relationships) also happening during this period.
This month we have 4 Major Arcana, 3 Aces, 1 Cup, 1 Pentacle, 3 Wands and only one Court card. The focus on Major Arcana and Aces is largely extremely positive. The goal posts have moved towards big picture themes and ways of being over the nuts and bolts of living a life.
A dearth of Court cards reemphasize the focus on thematic process over navel gazing at this time. August brings gifts to many and the lack of doom and gloom cards suggests a kinder, more gentle Mercury retrograde.
May it be so!
Look, I used to NOT be 'one of those people' who would allow astrology to plan my life for me. In fact, I am more of an astronomer than an astrologer. But, paying attention specifically to what happened to me over Mercury Retrogrades has certainly changed my mind to some degree. In any case, its never a bad idea to back up your hardware and it is certainly never a bad idea to drive carefully. Even if one thinks that the Mercury Retrograde is a crock, it is a kind reminder to take care of things that can often be forgotten about-until it breaks!
