“If we don’t fight for what we ‘stand for’ with our passionate words and honest actions, do we really ‘stand’ for anything?” ― Tiffany Madison
Effective Dates: July 1st- September 6th (Retrograde from July 27th- August 20th)
Helios on Mercury in Leo– That’s right, Heretics; gird your loins because we’re in for another damn retrograde. As if we didn’t have enough on the agenda….
So, lets cut straight to how this affects YOU, dear reader, because Mercury, Trickster god of Communication, Commerce, and Cutthroats is moving into the showboaty sign of LEO, all about the magnification of the self. Seriously, leave a Leo alone in a hall of mirrors and they’ll be fine for at least a week! This transit will show an outpouring of new faces on the spirituality scene, all vying for your attention and your money (speaking of, support us on patreon here- https://www.patreon.com/hereticaloracles!) but this will be relatively short-lived. Everyone will be active and loud AF during the first part of the transit, and expect to make some gaffes. Hold off on ANY conversation that matters until we are out of shadow.
Speaking of the retrograde, you will see all these new hotshots hit a brick wall once this retrograde comes into full swing. This life ain’t easy folks, and you talk to no one for a loooooooooong time. Now, this will happen due to the onset of impostor syndrome, which is not going to be limited to just spiritual pretenders. Whatever you are hyping up right now will be called into question during the retrograde (check your Leo house in your chart for more on that) and you are going to have to put your money where your mouth is. For some of you, this will be difficult, as you are used to coasting on Mercury’s blessing to bullshit your way through anything and everything, but when he goes retrograde along with six other planets (thats right, there are actually SEVEN major retrogrades happening, not just the six you see in the memes) AND we have to deal with three eclipses. But we’ll deal with that on their articles.
Now, this should lead to a Shadow period after the retrograde where we see more humility from you, or at the very least confidence proved (most of all to yourself!). Wherever you were being less than truthful or exaggerating, you will be brought down and your ego checked- but this is one of those times where you can shine through and prove yourself, if you care to. Prove everyone who doubts you wrong. It won’t be easy, but it’s your damn show.
Shine on, Heretics
