Energies are really growing right now and as time passes things are going to become more and more intense. The Mercury retrograde before us is going to last quite some time and bring us so much confusion that we are all going to be knocked off our socks at one point or another.
This specific retrograde begins on July 7th and will be in Leo. It will remain in this sequence until July 31st and will bring us all to a more frustrated and aggressive point in our lives. If you’re beginning to lose your temper and really lash out this retrograde is most likely why.
A lot of us will be on edge and more in tune with our cruel sides. While it is the smallest planet in our solar system it is one that packs a powerful punch. Mercury is the planet that rules over things like communication and things like our organizational skills. When this planet is retrograding, we are unable to move forth in the ways we would normally. Communicating becomes impossible and every message we want to get across becomes skewed.
Mercury retrograde brings communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays, and lost items. There is a feel of a difficult Mercury–Saturn aspect about Mercury retrograde. You can also expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past. While the Mercury retrograde period might be good for flicking through old photo albums, it is generally considered more of a nuisance than a benefit.
Mercury retrograde can play havoc with your thoughts, communications, travels, and electronics. Take extra care with your words and try not to react too quickly in any arguments or if provoked. Take some time out if you start to feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace. Double-check all of your emails and posts on Facebook before hitting the send button.
Business negotiations will be in a state of flux during Mercury retrograde so avoid signing contracts. Some important details will not yet be available, and others may be unreliable or dishonest. If going on a road trip then make sure you get your car serviced beforehand. The riskiest times for decision-making, negotiations, communication, and transport are the few days either side of the exact retrograde and direct stations. However, care should still be taken during the retrograde period.
All of this aside, the retrograde we are facing is going to help us grow one way or another. To learn more about what you should be expecting please feel free to check out the video below. Perhaps the things to come will be more improving in regards to your life than you realize.
This weekend alone is going to be kicking things off in more ways than you might be ready for. While things are going to be interesting and intense, remember to keep yourself grounded and take a step back when it is needed. Like all retrogrades, this will pass sooner or later.
