Fact is, sometimes it's time for a more internal focus. (and of course there's that whole misdirected desire for change going on)
During Mercury retrograde (until 8th Aug), anything related to study, communications, or quick travels, is going to do well at the thinking stages. Focus on plans rather than actually starting new projects, settling on decisions, or making bookings/purchases.
Make sketches, collate your notes, scribble out ideas, revise learning, organise, chart a route, make a list of wishes/ideas, push pins into a map, organise, delete unwanted bookmarks and emails, clear out cupboards, read, watch films, sort through old magazines, arrange the donations and recycling, do research, take more nights in, study at home, back-up data, and imagine.
You get the idea.
Importantly, sort out the clutter in your head - just leafing through and throwing out what is not serving your true purpose. In this period especially, rid yourself of confused thoughts connected to; love, children, creativity, expression, and aspirations. Or if there has been a lot going on in those areas, leave off thinking about them for now. Give your head and heart a break.
