On June 18, Mercury is about to go retrograde, and just because of that, many of us are on the edge. For me, Mercury going retrograde means that everything will go upside down with the technology, and that gives me a headache. This retrograde is expected to be overwhelmingly positive even though some may still find themselves in chaos surrounded by all the energies.

This retrograde is going to be very toned down compared to the retrogrades we’re used to because this time, it doesn’t have any planetary aspects. It will be all about success, positivity, and new chances. Thanks to Sirius, this retrograde will open doors to many of us.

Happening in the sign Cancer, this retrograde will bring out our emotional side on a deeper level. As you know, Cancer is all about emotions and expressions, so those who are not used to express and share their feelings with others might find themselves in a difficult situation. It could be a bit confusing to some, but on the bright side, this could encourage people who struggle to express their emotions in speaking up and being heard. This may not sound like much, but some will find themselves in a hard situation to get through.

Generally, Mercury retrograde is associated with expression and communication issues. This retrograde will still be dealing with issues of such nature, but it won’t be near as intensely as average retrograde. So, relax, meditate on the throat chakra, and you’ll be good to go. This retrograde won’t end until July 12, so use that time to try and speak your truth.

It’s always advisable to listen to your gut, so do not say things you do not feel like saying. Even though you should express yourself often, sometimes it’s better to bite your tongue and do not say something that could be misconstrued.

Natal Mercury Retrograde Meaning By Astrology King:

Natal Mercury in retrograde motion suggests there may have been a problem with how you thought and communicated in an earlier life. Perhaps you gave someone bad advice that had critical repercussions. Perhaps you were prone to making costly mistakes. Maybe you wrote slanderous material about someone in a book or newspaper, or verbally teased and abused people.

Whatever the circumstances of the previous significant incarnation, you come into this life with those bad memories etched in your soul. You probably don’t recognize them as memories but as déjà vu or unexplained guilt. A repeating theme of challenging events related to your past is likely, especially when young. The aim is to perfect those areas of thought and communication which once let you down. As your communication skills improve with experience, your karmic debt will be repaid and you can get off the roundabout.

Natal retrograde Mercury can show as learning difficulties, especially with reading, writing, and comprehension. You could be a shy, quiet person whose thoughts have turned in. Hesitant to speak up for yourself, you may miss out on many opportunities in life. This difficulty in expressing yourself can make you feel awkward in company, and lead to low self-esteem. You may experience teasing or verbal abuse, be nagged and criticized, or fall victim to slander and lies. Contracts may also cause problems and like so many things, lead to complications further down the track.

Retrograde Mercury only lasts for about three weeks so Mercury is going to turn direct at some stage in your progressed chart (where one day equals one year). After a couple of years, you will notice that your communication style improves and you can express yourself more freely. However, the opposite can also occur and someone with Mercury direct in their natal chart may experience progressed Mercury in retrograde motion later in life. I experienced this from age 13 to 37 and it was very profound. I even stopped reading books.

If you have Mercury retrograde in your natal or progressed chart then you can expect to make more rapid progress during transits of Mercury in retrograde motion.
