Mercury retrograde is not just about malfunctioning electronics, and distorted communications – it affects the body as well. Mercury will begin to move in retrograde from July 7 to July 31, and we will all be feeling its effects. Now, while we may be experiencing serious difficulties explaining or trying to communicate better, we will not be able to identify what is causing this.
There could be many examples of this, such as not being able to meet deadlines or getting sick just before something important comes up. You might think it’s a mere coincidence, but it’s the effect of a retrograde.
How Mercury Retrograde Affects Our Bodies
Helen Frost mentions that this retrograde would be quite powerful, because Mercury would be reversing the Leo sign, along with its conjunction with Mars. Both Leo and Mars are related to fire, so be careful. It also has a fairly powerful connection with Uranus, the unpredictable planet and Chiron, the celestial body responsible for wounding and healing. Not only these planets but also the two Eclipses near this retrograde will increase their power. That’s a very intense thing!
This retrograde will bring a lot of energy to you, but not a real place to focus on. Some of you, in fact, may be overflowing with it, while others, on the other hand, may not have enough. But in the end, what matters is how you place it, channeling it to perfection. Otherwise, you may exhaust yourselves with all the energy you try to burst at the seams.
It would be better if you did not try to concentrate all the time on making an important decision in your life or on a relationship issue at this time. Take your time, see all your options, and accept it with the energy at your disposal. It does not make sense for us to step aside from existence for something that might not make sense later. Try to meditate as well as practice spiritual exercises to help focus better.
In the end, we are all trying to navigate this backward movement, so relax because this will also happen.
