While most people usually don’t have a good experience with Mercury retrograde, this one is going to hold something quite unique. As these energies are making their way here we should be doing our best to find a sense of balance.
Mercury is going retrograde on July 26th, and it is going to bring forth parts of ourselves that we might not have even knew existed. While it might be an upsetting time, it might bring forth some of the most unexpected and positive changes you could hope for. Tension will be growing, but you will also be pushed to use your common sense.
While it might not be easy to adjust to the things going on, you will be able to adjust quite well. This retrograde is meant to really help you improve your communication skills through tearing them apart and really helping you to burst out of your shell. Luckily this retrograde while intense and full of energy doesn’t last long. It will be over before you know it.
One of the most important things to remember during this time is that, while your thoughts and emotions will be going crazy you are going to be bringing forth a lot of good news in the end. All your hard work is going to pay off in ways you might not ever imagine.
According to AstrologyZone, these are the things we shouldn’t be doing during the retrograde if Mercury:
Don’t make any important moves when Mercury is retrograde. Nothing will be settled successfully for the future during these periods anyway – you will find it nearly impossible to nail down a plan. During a retrograde period, it is hard to get decisions from others. Even if a decision is made, it will be subject to change, either just after Mercury turns to direct motion or much later.
Mercury retrograde periods would not be good times to do anything involving communications, such as launch a magazine, website, or an advertising or publicity campaign.
These phases are also considered poor times to launch any new endeavors, even if they are not related to the communications industries.
Similarly, a retrograde period is not a good time to sign any contracts or even to shake hands on any new agreements. Do not close on a house during this time nor sign a lease. Verbal agreements are considered the same as written ones. The environment will be quite fluid and changeable, no matter what you are told or what you think.
It’s not that the people you are dealing with are necessarily duplicitous. It’s just that nobody can fully predict what conditions will be like later. If you start a new job, it won’t necessarily be the position you thought it was when you accepted it. If you are a manager, you will have difficulty choosing the right candidate for the job, so, if you can, hold off hiring anyone. If you buy a house, problems could crop up later that were completely unanticipated.
While this might sound like a bit much if you really want to achieve the right things in the months to come allowing this energy to work properly for you will benefit you greatly. Once all of this is said and done you will be where you need to be.
While this retrograde is one that can spin out of control if you do not fight it things will go over smoothly within reason. For more on this retrograde to come feel free to check out the video below. Are you excited or scared?
