Mercury Retrogrades

Love & Happiness are Simple When You’re Done Thinking About How Complicated It is.

Mercury retrograde phases happen every year.  Usually the same elemental energy is emphasized.  In 2019 Mercury spends extra time in water signs such as your self, Pisces, and Scorpio.  Water signs are not strangers to the emotional realm.  And so, perhaps Mercury’s extended stay under a watery influence won’t be as difficult as it may be for other signs.  Still, as with all members of the zodiac it seems you will be working through the emotional past on an intellectual level periodically throughout the year.  Your natural psychic senses are likely to be intensified during these phases that can either help you sail through swells or, conversely, find you treading water for longer than is comfortable. You’ll probably attract those who are having a tough time emotionally as you are better be able to relate to what they are going through.

The second retrograde phase of the year begins on July 8thin the early degrees of Leo in conjunction to Mars. During this time you may feel you want more, you deserve more. While there is probably some truth to that pushing too hard can empty your pocket book pretty quick. Once Mercury re-enters Cancer on July 19thit seems you’ll have to re-evaluate how you present yourself to others.  For instance you may want a raise, know you deserve one but are not exactly willing to step up your game and show your best side.  In other words, trying to out-boss the boss during this period may not go over as well as you’d hoped. Then again, it is possible you are recognized for your efforts but are none too keen about taking on more responsibility.

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, it will have all been settled and you can expect to be one busy bee.

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.
