Emotional Trains between Friends, Family, Lovers, & Mind.
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 signs are considered karmic and tend to have an influence over the manner in which you communicate and portend significant changes in the dynamics of your relationships of any kind including friends, family, co-workers and significant others. As with all members of the zodiac the emotional past intermingles at times positively and at others not so much. As you attempt to deal with circumstances on a rational, intellectual level then, it can be overwhelming. Psychic senses will also be more pronounced during the Mercury retrogrades adding to the confusion that increased emotional sensitivity brings.
MERCURY Retrograde in 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. How and what you communicate is of greater importance than usual. You may be frustrated with others, ended up saying things you don’t really mean especially at the start of this phase. In fact, your actions and behaviors at this time can see you engaged in damage control up until mid August. This is not limited to casual conversations with friends, siblings and the like. Contracts, agreements of any kind will require extra attention – be aware of ‘fine print’. It would also be a good idea to take the time to consider how the decisions you make now will impact your life in the long term.
Once Mercury re-enters Cancer on July 19thchildhood memories, past relationships, thoughts of old friendships re-emerge pointing to outworn patterns affecting your life in ways you had, perhaps 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 and prepare to re-set based on what you learn about yourself & your interactions with others during this time.
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.
