#MercuryRetrograde. It definitely can get a bad rap but I always like to say it’s a time of re-evaluation, re-minding, slowing down, going inward. The following Tarot x Horoscopes are custom created for each sign. I chose a card with the intention of offering a message on a theme or a suggestion on how to move through these three weeks with as much grace as possible. Mercury Retrograde lasts August 21st through September 5th, 2017 through both Leo & Virgo.

Knight of Cups:
Gathering with Friends, People of Like Mind & Energy, Self Nurturance.
Aries, Cancer is a lovely energy for you during such a fire and air filled time. Take some space to get into water during the retrograde, whether that be the bath tub or a salt water spa. Anything to root down, slow down and connect in, with yourself & other lovely people will be great for your being during these busy and sometimes intense times.
6 of Swords:
Objectivity, Self Study, Crossing the River.
Taurus, this is a great time of self study, objectivity (non-emotionality if possible), journaling, talking with therapists or trusted friends, etc. You may find you reach a new level or clarity or a deep sense of internal stillness if you’re willing to take some time to feed the positive side of your mind these next few weeks.
Ace of Swords:
Break Through in Thinking, Clear Thought, Fresh Start, Insights.
Gemini, be willing to look at things in a new and fresh way during this retrograde. Conversations, communication, positive self talk, these things are all highlighted for you. Positive vibes or people that encourage you to think positive are important for you while your ruling planet is in Retrograde.
Looking Inward, Transformation, Meditation, the Healing Power of Water.
Cancer, let these last few weeks of Mercury Retrograde be a healing time for you. The Art Card is “a challenge to look inward”, to get deep for a moment & see all of the gold lying around in your internal being. You can get wildly inspired & extremely creative with an energy like this on your side. Seek the Truth of all situations and move with lightness of being in your daily affairs.
Burning off old Karma, Trusting the Universe, Going with the Flow.
Leo, The Universe card is a powerful reminder that you are always in the perfect place at the perfect time. Regardless of what is happening, or what is going on around you, repeat the mantra: “I am in the perfect place right now & always.” This will help you go with the flow if you’ve been feeling any turbulence or internal unrest these last few weeks.
Let Go, Let Flow, Major Change, Spiritual Transformation.
Virgo, have you ever heard the phrase “Let Go, Let God?” or if you’re not into the God-word, Let it go and let it flow will do just fine. The Tower is all about moving out of the way of your own most powerful transformation. Its your Spirit seeking to intervene & have a conversation with you to lead you into your best phase of life. Honor whatever major changes go down for you during this Retrograde & know that the best is yet to come you just have to get out of your own way.
Nurturance, Feminine Energy. Looking forward to a brighter Future, Venus.
Libra, this is a great time for your feminine side, creativity, things of beauty, meditation, rest and self love. If the Mercury Retro. has felt a bit heavy just go into your Venusian qualities: think harmony, think inner peace, think facials, think buying yourself flowers.
Ace of Cups
New found love, Self Love, New Beginnings, Fresh Start, Universal Energy.
Scorpio, Ace of Cups is all about fresh energy & renewal. It also tunes you into the harmonics of the Love frequency: self love, love for others, love for a pet, an idea, etc. Your trick these few weeks is tapping into the infinite potentiality for good vibes that is all around you now. Take a deep, deep breath & breath, it, in.
Prince of Cups
Focus on Internal Transformation, Inward Focus, Desires, Cravings, Wishes, Transformation.
Sagittarius, this is an excellent time to focus on changing key parts of your self that are essential to your forward movement. Where do you visualize yourself going, transforming & growing? Take a moment and breath deeply, see yourself now. Prince of Cups is about giving love to yourself and the places within that aren't yet blossomed. This Retrograde period can be a good time to go inward and give time to just you.
Victory after Struggle, Expansion, Heart Energy, Triumph.
Celebrate Capricorn as I know from time to time you can be quite serious about life, your mission and your trajectory. A 6 of Wands during a Retrograde reminds you to lighten up, and go into all you do with your head held high, heart full of gratitude. Count the things that you’ve made go right in recent times or in your life in general. Celebrate your victories and share the wealth with those around you.
Knight of Disks
Sowing Seeds, Planting your Harvest, Ground Down, Health.
Aquarius, this is a time of taking care of yourself and sowing your seeds. Take these few weeks and write down your plans for the future, take excellent care of your health, get into touch with the Earth somehow. Success is assured in all you do if you can honor the dimensionality of work in front of you without feeling restricted by it.
Fear of Defeat, Healing Relationships, Letting go of Fear, Change for the Better.
Pisces, do not worry this card is not about defeat. This is about over coming your own fear of defeat of really facing yourself and becoming strong. Where do you feel a bit weighted down right now? Where do you feel you sabotage yourself? 5 of Swords asks you to get clear in your own mind about where you are heading & what you can let go of from your past. Looking over relationships are a good idea right now- which ones serve your best self, and which can you gently release? You’ve got this.
