Mercury retrograde phases happen every year. Usually the same elemental energy is emphasized. In 2019 Mercury will spend 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 perhaps 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.
*All water signs 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 especially for water signs.
