Elevate Your Communication According to Your Dosha

Mercury recently went direct (July 13), and many of you know what that means: time to get stuff done! Mercury in forward motion allows you to move forward, too! The dates for the current Mercury direct period are July 13, 2020, through October 14, 2020, in both Vedic and Western astrology. This is an excellent time to make progress on projects, start something new, take small trips, and communicate with clarity. Mercury enlivens any activity that involves written or spoken idea exchange. So, it is a perfect time to write this little primer for aligning the natural Mercurial energy in yourself with that in the cosmos.
