Hold on to your passwords, friends and neighbors— Mercury stations retrograde today at 11 Virgo. Mercury turns retrograde just before completing an opposition with Neptune, suggesting that there is some illusion which cannot be unraveled before making a backward journey into and through the underworld. This voyage will see Hermes find rich veins of data concealed deep within cognitive caverns. Though there is much of value to be mined and refined, the tunnels which lead to these caches twist and wind chaotically, potentiating a variety of confusions. We will walk this turning path with Mercury until the planet’s direct station on September 5th.
What dis-order is signified by Mercury’s station today is amplified by the Moon’s late-night conjunction with Uranus in Aries, whose effect spans the second half of the day. Surprises, reversals and delays abound.
