After several weeks in Leo, Mercury, the Planet of Communication, returns to its home sign of Virgo today. This is the “back to school” energy we’ve collectively been yearning for. Our ability to focus on what’s essential will deepen during this transit. Taurus, with Mercury in a fellow earth sign, you may start to feel more grounded, even amidst the destabilizing energy of Uranus Retrograde. Today would be an ideal day to write a game plan for yourself — what will you be focusing on these next six months? Keep things simple instead of trying to do it all at once. The more you streamline your systems, the more easeful the process becomes.
