Mercury Retrograde In Virgo 2023: Urged & Confused

Mixed bagMercury will be conjunct Mars in Virgo, opposing Neptune when it turns retrograde on August 23rd.  This sound like, ‘You better do something, but what!?”

You’re probably trying to resolve something at this time. You’re probably delayed, with Saturn in Pisces. This is not going to help. But knowing this happening can help.

When phone calls are dropped or you or someone around you, makes a mistake, I’d try to let it go. It’s like walking on banana peels.  Slipping does not mark you as an idiot; it’s expected.

As for the dates and degrees, Mercury will turn retrograde at 21 degrees Virgo. The planet will turn direct at 8 degrees on September 15th, clearing it’s shadow on September 29th.

This is not terrific for Virgo birthdays, but on the upside, Mercury will enjoy a break from Neptune in the later degrees.  This will offset the downside, significantly, especially if you can keep your mind relaxed.

Also note, Mercury will high tail it out of there, before it’s trapped by Saturn in Pisces. I consider this a mixed bag.
