Mercury Retrograde

Mercury turns retrograde tomorrow and won’t turn into direct motion until September 5th. Mercury will do the retrograde mostly in Virgo. This is the perfect time to regroup things. Clean out boxes and closets. It’s time to tackle that junk drawer!

The Morning Sky 

Each morning the Moon will be getting closer to bright Venus. If you get up 1/2 hour before sunrise, you can see them both. Quite soon, Mars will also be visible in the predawn sky. More planetary viewing in the near future!
