It’s that time of the year. Even if you are not an ardent follower of astrology, the words “retrograde Mercury” will always make you feel a little superstitious. This is because this transit never fails to sow confusion. When the Mercury is retrograde, it’s often easy to blame all of your stress for its duration of three weeks.
But before you start to groan again in frustration over retrograde Mercury, let me remind you that this transit is nowhere near as bad as you might think. In fact, Mercury retrograde summer 2020 will be the best for these signs of the zodiac, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, and for them, the experience will not dull their radiance.
The retrograde mercury of this summer begins on June 18 and ends on July 12, taking place in the cardinal water sign of Cancer. This sign is governed by the Moon, the “planet” of emotion and care, and it is a sign that communicates intuitively and empathically.
While this retrograde Mercury will encourage you to connect with your inner truth and open your heart to others, the overwhelming nature of Cancer’s sensitivity can seem downright exhausting.
Cancer is a very nostalgic and sentimental sign, and since retrograde Mercury tends to flirt with the past, this transit can let you romanticize everything that has happened and disappeared. While this is a closing opportunity, it can also make you want to dive back into a past that should stay where it is.
However, even if you are forced to let your heart take the wheel while your mind takes place in the back, this transit will reveal the truth of where your heart is. Even if it will probably feel disturbing at first, nothing is more liberating than the truth.
This will hit you hard, but will also transform you. Make no mistake, with retrograde Mercury taking place in your zodiac sign, you will definitely feel its effects. However, that does not mean that experience will not help you regain your strength on a much deeper level.
While this retrograde may leave you wondering who you are and what you stand for, it will encourage you to find extremely powerful answers to these questions. In the end, your self-confidence and your sense of self will be stronger than before, especially if you are ready to do the job.
You will visit new places and adopt new ideas. You could get lost during this Mercury retrograde, Scorpio. You can sometimes feel like you don’t know which way is up and which down. However, experience will also prove that sometimes you have to get lost in order to find yourself again.
Even if you don’t feel like you have a destination or even a map, let yourself be dive into the unknown. New experiences await you; experiences you wouldn’t have had if you were too afraid of getting lost. May the spontaneous moments be the ones you will never forget.
The experience will let you rejuvenate creatively. You rediscover your creative instincts at a much deeper level during this Mercury retrograde, Pisces. However, who said that rediscovering your creativity would be an easy process?
It forces you to face fear and self-doubt that prevents you from being creative and, ultimately, experiencing the purest form of joy. Unpacking these feelings will be a central theme in your retrograde Mercury story, but there will be so many sparkling moments in which you will take inspiration and refuse to let go. There is magic on your way, so open your heart to know its real.
