Mercury’s Retrograde in August 2023 Brace for Chaos and Discover How to Navigate the Cosmic Storm!”
Whilst we find ourselves still in the ongoing Venus Retrograde 2023, we now stand on the brink of August’s Mercury Retrograde, ready, and waiting to bring in its powerful influence once more.
In the world of Astrology, Mercury assumes the role of the communication planet. It embodies the full spectrum of communication, including casual conversations, social media interactions, public speaking engagements, creative songwriting in fact just about any way that we connect and communicate as human beings. I wonder if AI will have the same experience!
Mercury also governs the realms of information and intellect, contracts and agreements, personal opinions, and rational thinking. It impacts anything in our lives where again we are being connected to each other.
During this planetary influence we will feel much mor confident with it comes to having those new ideas and the decision to share them. We will have the courage to raise our hand in a daunting classroom or step onto a stage and sing into a microphone. This is a season to be seen as we lose old fears and old limitations of our self.
As Mercury’s retrograde journey begins on the 23rd of August 2023. It also has the influence of Virgo. Which is all about being practical, being grounded.
Are you wondering how are these energies going to play out in your businesses?
Mercury’s influence is always something that we cannot dodge and this transit it looks as though it is heading straight into your communication aspects and influencing how you feel about the way you communicate, or the way other people communicate with you.
People around you could be feeling vulnerable, and feelings could get hurt during this time through difficult conversations whether held face to face or via chat. Watch that your face does not reveal what you are really thinking!
There is also a need to check who you are sending that message, that email to before you hit send or you could find yourself sharing confidential information with the wrong person.
All the planning in the world will not prevent unforeseen events taking place during the mercury retrograde season. Some events may even need to be cancelled.
As always travel disruptions are possible and make sure you have got those tickets and your passport if you are jetting off abroad between now and the 15th of September.
My tips for you and your business to survive this one:
My first tip is to be flexible, whether it is for booking in meetings or events. Be flexible not just in the when they are booked in but also in how they actually go on the day. Being more fluid could bring you a much more positive outcome too.
If you are heading out somewhere for an important meeting or event, keep an eye on those traffic reports and give yourself plenty of time to get there.
If you must have a team meeting to discuss any difficult situation, be sensitive and choose your words well or you could be opening yourself up to a much bigger problem involving HR.
Business could feel like it is slowing down during this transit, so this is a great time to reach out to old clients to see if they need your help once more.
During those quieter times this one would be a really good time to get organised. To look at how your business is organised, your client journey, your back office system and how you store your client information.
