I do not know how to do astrology and so I can only share what I know through life journeys and that is that Mercury Retrograde (12 Aug. - 5 Sept 2017) is all about letting go and daring to change. As we go through these next 3 1/2 weeks it is definitely a challenge that is going to force us all to change to greater and lesser degrees....I suggest that you align yourself with the change and map out a plan so that once we are into Sept. you can implement your plan and embrace the changes that you dared to make. DARE TO BE THE BEST OF WHO YOU ARE no matter what others may think as they ARE NOT YOU and never can be you.
This is a time that brings emotions to the surface and unwanted events that shake our foundations....but BELIEVE in yourself and your path, go forward and life will bring the most wonderful rewards. Transformation can be beautiful.
