The August Mercury Retrograde travels from 11 Virgo back to 28 Leo from August 13, 2017 – September 5, 2017
This Retrograde Mercury will travel over the Fixed Star of REGULUS which is one of the “royal stars” that lie at the heart of Constellation Leo from August 29-September 5th. Mercury will meet Mars on Regulus, and even though people will act on impulse, This Mercury conjunct Mars will be passionate, but honorable. What comes out is pure, impulsive truth.
Regulus was at 29 Leo for the past 72 years, and due to the rotation of our constellations, it has moved its one degree into 1 Virgo. This is where it will station for the next 72 before it continues on its universal journey through the signs. With Regulus in Virgo, this will bring in more Service Centered issues.
This Mercury Retrograde has creative potential, and power to provoke courage, public prominence and high military command. This Mercury R has an honorable feel to it.
And not only do we have Mercury R transiting Regulus, Mars and Sun conjunct the New Moon, which is Squaring Uranus in Aries, a Lunar Eclipse August 7, 2017, at 15 Aquarius, which will all fuel and empower the …….. Great American Eclipse at 29 Leo on August 21, 2017
The Sun is most powerful in Leo, and the Eclipse is in Leo, but the Eclipse will block out the Sun. This eclipse will be VERY important to the American people, as it enters on the West Coast in Oregon, and will travel through America and exit in S. Carolina.
The implications of this important eclipse on Regulus will be both, personal and political.
