It’s time for the infamous and boring transit that everyone dislikes: Mercury retrograde. That’s right, the planet of communication and cognitive function stations retrograde on June 8 and the stations direct again on July 12, so be prepared, because it’s coming soon.
However, before you start running for cover, let’s talk about all the good that can come out of retrograde Mercury. In fact, when you read your retrograde summer 2020 Mercury horoscope, you will not only have a better understanding of what to expect, but you will also realize that experience has a lot to teach you. No need to be afraid.
Set in intuitive and protective Cancer, this retrograde will reveal where your heart is, giving you a better idea of how you are dealing with your feelings and show you care. To be quite frank, this will also make the experience tricky, so don’t be surprised if your emotions overwhelm you during this time.
Cancer is a sign that tends to communicate with empathy; by simply feeling what others are feeling and assuming that their feelings are understood in return. However, since Mercury will be retrograde, which tends to cause misunderstandings, this sets the tone for many indirect communications.
Remember that Cancer is symbolized by the crab, and instead of moving forward, the crab tends to slink away by moving sideways. Retrograde Mercury in Cancer is no different, so keep in mind that passive-aggressive communication styles are unlikely to achieve the desired result.
Fortunately, you don’t need to overthink about what is going on during retrograde Mercury, as it is usually a period of impermanence. Generally, it is not advisable to start new projects or relationships during this period, as they may lose steam later.
Instead, it’s a great time to go back to old projects you have disconnected from or reconnect with people from your past and finally get a sense of closure.
Consider Mercury retrograde as an opportunity to take a break from everything and engage in reflection, revision, and reform. It’s a slow, steady process, but Mercury retrograde always encourages you to go back to the drawing board.
