Buckle up buttercups, Mercury Retrograde is cruising down the highway of communication and she will arrive in Virgo on August 12th and will be on an extended vacation until September 5th. What do the stars reveal for your favorite zodiac sign? Check out Astrochicks’ Astrology Horoscope Predictions for August 2017.

Don’t let Mercury Retrograde in Virgo put a cosmic wrench into your plans. Beware this astrological transit will cause delays in travel, technology, and communication.  However, it’s an excellent time to finish what you started whether it’s a good book, painting your house, or finishing that project you have been putting off.

Also, don’t sign contracts or make verbal agreements. This might be the most widely known tip about Mercury Retrograde, but it’s an important reminder for all zodiac signs.  If at all possible, avoid new agreements! Because once you sign the dotted line, you will likely find that a series of events or misunderstandings cause the initial agreement to change or fall apart. Instead, this is a good time to consider a renegotiation.

However, Mercury Retrograde in Virgo can cause a communication crisis for some zodiac signs and make you feel a bit high strung. If you have been feeling your life is out of control, Mercury Retrograde may push you to make necessary changes. It will be an excellent opportunity to make a list of what needs to be organized, planned, and how you are going to take care of business when it goes direct on September 5th.

How will Mercury Retrograde in Virgo effect other zodiac signs? Mercury rules the house of Virgo which means it will have a POSITIVE effect on earth signs Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn. It’s a perfect time to evaluate your accomplishments for 2017 and establish what you hope to complete before 2018.

Mercury in Retrograde may cause a few problems for fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries. First, you hate when you feel controlled, and Mercury in Virgo will grind everything to a halt for a few weeks making you quite impatient. The Air Signs can use this period to be more introspective and enjoy the last few weeks of summer. Of course for Water Signs: Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer it will be a dramatic period with emotions and impulses holding the sway. A stressful time for the water natives but not to worry, life will go back to normal on September 5th, and it will be full steam ahead.

Mercury Retrograde allows us to put our life on pause to gain a new perspective and realize what we might have missed in the past. So, relax and enjoy!
