Depending on where you live, Mercury will go retrograde either early tomorrow morning or late this evening, joining the other 4 retrograde planetary energies in the sky! The drive to look inwards, is very powerful for us all, so don’t be surprised if creating some quiet space to process your thoughts feels particularly important right now!
Retrograding in the sign of Cancer, Mercury invites us to give some thought to family and other ‘familiar’ relationships. What are their commonalities? Who in our life reminds us of important family members, including challenging ones from our family of origin? How are we repeating ‘familiar’ dynamics? What are we hoping to resolve? Consciousness as always, gives us more choice as to what is truly going on in these relationships.
Mercury Retrogrades always offer us the opportunity to re-view, re-think and re-consider our thoughts and communication patterns. As Cancer is a water sign, which by its nature is pre-verbal, intuition is more easily accessible than words, and emotions are highlighted, more than logic. Communication of important matters in relationships may be easier through writing at this time, rather than speaking. As always during retrogrades, best to avoid text messages, as they can be more easily misunderstood.
On July 7th we’ll experience the Mercury Rx/Mars square. This can help us re-consider where we want to take action on behalf of our family and loved ones, particularly when the square repeats on July 23rd.
Cancer is a very visual and creative sign, so it’s a great time to look back over old photos of loved ones and to edit or finish off a creative project – art, writing, music…
Nothing can be assumed during retrogrades as confusion can easily scramble our thoughts, so don’t hold back on being explicit with the people you love about how important they are in your life. ‘I love you’ notes can go a long way amidst these turbulent times! MG
PS: as always during Mercury Retrograde - best avoid signing important contracts and if you have to, make sure you have read all the fine print very carefully as mistakes can easily happen! Back up all electronic devices and remember that it’s a great time to review, rather than start a new project - including a new relationship!
