If you and your partner have spent the last few months in quarantine having heart-to-hearts and solving your relationship problems, be prepared for potential challenges as retrograde Mercury is upon us.
Whenever the communications planet travels backward, there may be a few bumps along the way regarding the way you and your partner interact.
There are three zodiac signs in particular that are most likely to have communication problems during retrograde Mercury. From June 17 to July 12, Mercury retrograde will be under the sign of Cancer, which will make it a moving moment for everyone. We may feel more sensitive, which means we can connect with each other at deeper levels, but it also means that we are more receptive to each other’s vibrations.
If you are in a relationship, it is important to know how you communicate with your partner. Always be open and honest about how you really feel. Since Cancer is a sign of sensitive water, everyone can be a little more intuitive than usual. According to Lang, holding back or telling white lies at this point could backfire.
In addition to Mercury, there are also several other retrograde planets at this time, including Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. It can lead to standstills, which can be frustrating. We will all feel some of the intensity, but in the middle of that, we will have opportunities for true heart connections and healing.
Obviously, there is a lot going on in the sky this month. Although all signs of the zodiac are affected in some way by the retrograde, these three signs are the most likely to have communication problems in their relationship, according to Lang.
Mercury is all about communication, so signs governed by Mercury like Gemini and Virgo can have a more difficult time during retrograde cycles. According to Lang, it is easy for Geminis to feel misunderstood during this time.
They are also more likely to misread people and situations, which can cause unnecessary tension in their relationship. If you find that your mind is constantly working, develop a meditation or spiritual practice to help slow things down.
Mercury retrograde will occur under the sign of cancer in June. For this reason, anyone with a Cancer Sun, Moon, or rising will feel it more than others. Cancers need to be aware of how they communicate in their relationship.
They must learn not to suppress feelings, but rather to express them with compassion. This will help solve the communication problems that arise.
Capricorns may feel more frustrated with their partner during this time, especially when they are not direct with their words. If you meditate, work on certain breathing techniques or take time with your partner when you need it, your relationship should be okay.
