Mercury retrograde will be here very soon (October 31st) and with that, we are gaining some pretty intense energies. This retrograde will be nothing like your average Mercury retrograde and because of that, you need to be on your toes.

This retrograde will be a much friendlier retrograde than we are used to. It is going to offer us a sense of love and peace that might really catch you off guard. As we move forth and this retrograde begins we will most likely be working on cooperating with one another and building proper networks within our close circles.

Whether you’re in a relationship or looking for love, this is going to be a good retrograde for those romantically inclined. While right now you’re probably feeling these energies as they are building, you’re only experiencing the tip of the iceberg. Because Venus is present during this retrograde and holding heavy influence we are all going to be feeling more social which is a bit of a treat compared to what we normally face.

Astrology King wrote as follows in regards to the energies we should be expecting:

Mercury conjunct Venus makes Mercury retrograde 2019 the right time to tell someone you love them. It puts you in touch with what you love about a person and makes it easier to share your affections. Other people will also find it easier to show you love and appreciation. You could receive compliments, letters, invitations, gifts or even some money.

Increased social interaction and interpersonal skills make this a good time to ask for favors or to ask someone out on a date. Old friendships can be renewed and new friends made. While Mercury retrograde, in general, may cause some communication difficulties, this aspect encourages cooperation and negotiation. It helps you find peaceful resolutions to any disputes.

 Fixed star Toliman at 29°42′ Scorpio gives friendship, charity, goodwill, refinement and a position of honor and power. [1] But relationships with women may be spoiled, or an existing happy relationship stricken by exceptional circumstances. [2]

Mercury and Venus with Toliman give popularity, benefits from friends, intelligence, business success, and artistic and musical abilities. However, it can make you changeable, indecisive, fault-finding and difficult to please, with danger from love affairs, trouble in domestic affairs through enemies, family sickness, and disappointed ambitions. [1]

Really allow yourself to move forth and be present in the lives of those around you. Don’t hold back too severely. As this retrograde continues forth we are all going to be thinking more about our words and choosing them wisely so that we can all grow together. The more you embrace this whole transit the more self-aware and cleansed you will become. 

During this time do not hesitate to connect with whatever sparks a passion within your own mind. Really break free of any fear or holdbacks you might be dwelling on. Pleasure is heading your ways and if you allow it to hold space in your life great things will take place. 

When you address those who matter most remember to be very charged emotionally. Don’t do anything without meaning. Fill the voids and really work to express yourself as this retrograde takes place. You’re going to be growing so much through all of this and perhaps becoming quite close to someone special. 

This retrograde will finally be the positive experience you’ve been looking for and really end October with a ‘bang.’ For a more detailed look at what each sign should be expecting please take a peek at the video below. Are you as excited about this retrograde as we are?
