Mercury retrograde can cause things to feel out of order. It can bring confusion and complications to our everyday lives. Mercury retrograde occurs several times a year and it is Mercury speeding past Earth.
During this time, people are prone to taking things out of context and misconstruing messages. Mercury retrograde is all about communication but you will face some roadblocks. People should expect to hear some uncomfortable truths during this time. You will need to reevaluate facts to determine the truthfulness of it. Mercury retrograde brings much self-reflection on our actions and the actions of others.
Many challenges that people face during this time are related to the fact that we are coming into Leo season and Leo is known to be a commanding and authoritative sign that tends to say things without thinking first. Leos are very prideful and when Mercury is in retrograde, people say things that come off as arrogant. There will be a lunar eclipse on July 16 and after Mercury retrograde transitions back into Cancer. You should reflect on your communication struggles from earlier in the retrograde.
The eclipse on July 16th is about letting go of people who are not at our level, letting go of the past, the power struggles and the love triangles. Use the end of retrograde to make amends and to decide if it is even worth it. No more drama should be your mantra at this time. Count to three before responding to someone and let yourself cool off before you respond. In today’s fast paced communication, it is ok to take a pause before responding to anyone. Remember that we cannot control what other people do but we can give ourselves a moment to control how we react.
