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 Cancer. 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.
MERCURY RXin LEO/CANCER July 8thuntil August 1st, 2019.
The second retrograde phase this year begins on July 8thin the early degrees of Leo in conjunction to Mars. Career goals and long-terms plans that formulate at between July 8thand 19thare likely to bring out the best in you – it can feel like you have indeed located the light at the end of the tunnel. There’s just one thing …you’ve got to go backwards to fix a few things before moving onto that road. While, the logistical obstacles probably won’t be difficult to handle the emotional world of all involved (including yourself) can make for a sticky situation. Once again, your psychic sensitivities are both a blessing and bane here. In other words, you know very well what’s involved on more than one level.
As this retrograde occurs in your experiential 9thyou’d do well to view this as an important learning curve. Applying what you know from the past won’t be as helpful as opening yourself up to consider things in a new light. Old patterns from childhood are apt to fog your understanding making that a tad difficult. Although, if you are observant of how the same things keep replaying in your life (especially in regard to your emotional world and sense of security) this is a great opportunity reframe the past in more positive light.
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 may notice that your plans from the future have been adjusted since early July.
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 is really only the first 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.
