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 can significantly change the dynamics of relationships of any kind including friends, family, co-workers and significant others. Like 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 and somewhat disorienting. Psychic senses will also be more pronounced during the Mercury retrogrades adding to the confusion that increased emotional sensitivity brings.

The second retrograde phase of the year begins on July 8thin the early degrees of Leo in conjunction to Mars. On one hand your social world is becoming increasing important yet, how you feel about the folks you spend time with may be in question.

The good news is this Mercury retrograde phase will help you tune into yourself on another level that can help you not only find ‘your people’ but eventually improve connections with friends, both new old. At first, the may seem counterintuitive. However, it is more that you are re-aligning a deeper part of yourself in connection to others. In other words, you won’t be following along with crowd simply to maintain good graces. Once Mercury re-enters Cancer on July 19thyou are likely to feel more at ease with the folks you find yourself gravitating towards.
Mercury corrects its course on August 1stbut will not re-enter Leo and be out of its retrograde shadow until August 15th. At this point you are likely to draw back again entering a meditative period that often comes weeks before your birthday.

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.
