Karmic Bones & Psychic Muscles
Mercury retrograde phases happen every year. Usually the same elemental energy is emphasized. In 2019 Mercury spends extra time in water signs Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. These are known to be the karmic houses in your solar chart Aries and so it seems you will be working through the emotional past on an intellectual level periodically throughout the year. Psychic senses will be more pronounced during the Mercury retrogrades periods adding to the confusion that increased emotional sensitivity brings.
*All fire signs your self, Leo & Sagittarius, will have similar experiences but the influence manifests in different areas of their life during each phase.
This isn’t something to worry about as much as it is something to be aware of. When Mercury is closer to the earth, as it is during these periods, it encourages us to focus a little more. There is more to gain than lose here.
MERCURY RXin LEO/CANCER July 8thuntil August 1st, 2019.
The second retrograde phase of the year begins on July 8thin the early degrees of Leo in conjunction to Mars. You may very well be a little bit too bold in your expressions. Thus, the need to rethink your behaviour, especially in terms of how you relate to family, becomes apparent. Mercury re-enters Cancer on July 19th bringing childhood memories back to life making a change in how 'you' see things rather difficult. Any way you cut it your perception of the past has a larger effect on your life in ways you had not considered before.
Mercury corrects its course on August 1stbut will not re-enter Leo and be out of its retrograde shadow until August 15th. You can breathe a little easier after you begin to release at least part of the emotional hold of memories long passed at this point.
2019 Mercury RX in a nutshell….
All three Mercury retrograde periods are likely to trigger emotions that are in need of further investigation. It won’t be easy. The tendency is to blame the actions of others for triggering us. While, yes, ‘they’ may play some part in causing us to hurt it is our responsibility to work through what comes up. The truth is no one can actually hurt us if we are aware and can accept that in order to grow, growing pains are to be expected.
* It is always worth noting that this interpretation of how the Mercury retrogrades can influence your Sun Sign only touches on one layer. It is an outline of the general theme. Where your planets were at birth, your rising sign, and a slew of other factors unique to your personal chart touch on deeper aspects.
