Karmic Bones & Psychic Muscles
Mercury retrograde phases happen approximately three times 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 Leo 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, Aries & Sagittarius, will have similar experiences but the influence manifests in different areas of 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.

The final Mercury retrograde phase of the year begins on October 31stin the last degrees of Scorpio. Conscious engagement in a long overdue emotional transformation is about to take place. In truth, Mercury’s entry into Scorpio on October 3rdmay have already spurred a need to engage in deeper psychological investigations. Yet, while Mercury backtracks the process could be more intense.
Mercury stations direct on November 20thbut will not be out of its retrograde shadow until December 8th. It will still be in Scorpio at that time so emotional cobwebs won’t feel like they have been swept away until December 10thwhen Mercury moves into Sagittarius. Somewhat similar to the last Mercury retrograde phase home and family dynamics will likely be central as you contemplate your emotional world AND take action in terms of inner healing.
2019 Mercury RX in a nutshell….
All three periods will 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 hurt but it is ultimately 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 can be expected.
