Your activity is to sit outside at sunrise and call on the goddess Brigid for illumination and inspiration. You may also want to gather up the common marigold flower and scatter its petals about to encourage prosperity. Plant or harvest something new, create something from nothing, and prepare to win at everything.

The next retrograde cycle of Mercury
will occur August 30 and last through September 22, 2016. Communication, intellect and awareness are all within Mercury's domain, as are logic and reasoning, our manner of thinking, and how we create and express our thought processes. So, when Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow time for extra travel, and avoid signing contracts. Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions.
