This week Mercury will go retrograde starting on August 20TH. Keep a look out for miscommunications and a tendency to be a "know it all." Some Babes may lose their cool when dealing with someone who is "the answer to the question that nobody asked."
Think things over carefully before making any big decisions or changes in your life. The past usually returns during Mercury retrograde periods and bumping into old friends and lovers is very possible. Keep your lips glossed and your hair tossed because you just never know who will be around the corner. Use the retrograde to your advantage by giving yourself a second chance to fix things that you may have started during the last Mercury retrograde from three months ago.
