Mercury turns retrograde again, transforming communication plans into sloppiness, whether it is on the internet or in any other form. This rough period that we may be feeling could last for three weeks. Then it will intensify on June 17 and 18 when the confusion and discomfort may become unbearable for many. As Mercury is a slow-moving planet the unease will not be completely cleared away until July 26, 2020. It will be at a time when the sign of relief will have given us all an ah ha moment.
The slow journey of retrograde will begin in Gemini, move into Cancer and part of Leo, then back again into Cancer. The pre-progression period of Mercury retrograde will cross Gemini and Cancer but primary Gemini. The pre-Progression period will begin June 2 and will continue to move backwards until June 12, 2020. During this time there could be disturbances in communication via misunderstandings. As this is period is in Gemini and Cancer, there are possibilities that many will change their minds in areas of communication as they could be extremely emotional or negatively fickle-minded.
During the pre-progression period all those that have Gemini anywhere in their chart will be affected, including all mutable signs (Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius, and Pisces). This will affect those that were born 5 days before Mercury begins to move backwards and 5 days after (date of birth to be May 28 through June 07). Noting that even if you are not born on those days it does not mean you won’t be affected because Mercury is your ruler so no matter what, the discomfort will be there.
One of the biggest challenges for many Gemini’s will be that the second Lunar eclipse will be in full blast in Sagittarius/Scorpio. Trust me when I say that Gemini’s will NOT be able to handle the steam created out of the fire from Sagittarius and the water from Scorpio. Be prepared and ready to run. However, I think you have a slight chance of handling it because Mercury comes for a visit 3 times a year for you dear Gemini. Many start swimming to the shore so when the ocean volcanoes happen you don’t drown.
When Mercury is retrograding in the sign of Gemini it generates a logical and zealous focus. The energy could force you to spontaneously start something new and exclusive. It’s also probable that a journey to somewhere you have never been before arises. It is essential to dot all I’s and cross all T’s, otherwise, the past will assuredly haunt us. There will be inclinations to feel muddled, wavering, changeable, irritated, and the communication may come across as antagonistic; do not to take it personally.
This is energy is left over energy from June 2013 when Mercury was so close to the same degree that it is almost as if you are re-doing 2013 all over again.
Entering the Pre-Progression Juncture in Gemini will not be easy from June 13 through 16. Not only will there be the pull of retrograde energy, but usually people will start to feel the pull of the energy of the eclipse as we will have our second solar eclipse on the 20th.
Mercury is not just about distinctiveness, but collaboration and interpersonal or romantic relationships. Since Mercury’s energy is to reenter, reconsider, and reassess people from our past, they may return just when we thought we absolved, overlooked, or even released them from our lives.
If there is any second opportunity for a closure or an opening, this is it. Any romance, however, which starts during this time is based on unfinished business and undecided closures. This type of vigor is a settling energy as whatever begins now could end by next retrograde or by the end of October 1, 2020.
The Mercury retrograde Station period, June 17-18, will be extremely intense, not only because of the eclipse but because Mars will be in Pisces, where emotions will run wild. It is also transiting and moving through two signs, Gemini and Cancer.
During the stationed period, relationships in general are unpredictable and untrustworthy due to vain attitudes. All areas of communication are inflated, especially in any dramatic or leadership-oriented activity, matters of state, or having to do with children, romance, and creativity in general. Vital information can be lost so CYA (Cover Your A..) everything. Back up your important documents; print or keep them in safe places that you can easily remember. Be sure to carry a diary and refer to it often.
When Mercury goes retrograde (the impression of traveling backward), our communication will be tested. Because Mercury rules communication and transportation, these two areas are most disposed to issues during a Mercury Retrograde. Thoughts might be more problematic as crossed signals and indistinct meanings cloud normally straightforward discussions. Still, with a little reflection and attention, this can be also overcome.
Similarly, be ready with a fallback plan when you’re traveling. If your flight gets canceled or your car won’t start, endeavor to make the best of it. Who knows – while waiting, there may come a stunning idea or an answer which you been looking for, or maybe even a phone call from someone which you never thought you would get.
Below are my predictions for every zodiac character and what is expected. Please note this is not western or eastern astrology, rather VPAT predispositions, and the signs are only place holders for those that are born within a specific time period. Those that will be impacted by Mercury retrograde most intensely will be listed first. To get an overall picture of what is to come for your specific character (zodiac sign), it is recommended that a combination of the solar, lunar, and Mercury retrograde be combined.
Gemini & Cancer
During Retrograde in Gemini
June 1-18, 2020
Gemini: This may be a difficult time for you to communicate with people as your facial expressions may not match what you are trying to say, thus causing people to feel you are callus. There are possibilities of interpersonal relationship issues. If you are uncertain of something, rephrase and see if that is what you heard so that there are no doubts.
Cancer: In areas of work or creativity make sure all your plans or goals are realistic and they will work; it would not surprise me if you must do them again. Be careful as seasons change, you may become ill. As you may love to entertain or be around people, be very mindful that it’s time to really take the time for yourself and be vigilant about what is happening.
Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius
Pisces: Interpersonal relationships may cause you irritability; its time not to over-react. Make sure you think things through before you act. If you must speak in public, make sure to slow down and think before you speak. You have plenty to do but there may be tasks which may not get done. During this time, active listening will really help you understand people more.
Virgo: This may be the time when you just want to veg. You may be seriously considering a new career or project. Be cordial to all of your superiors. Take time to sleep well. If you have tedious but important goals and projects, and if they can wait until July, then do so.
Sagittarius: You may find areas of your profession and personal relationships are going through a testing period. Both areas are not to your satisfaction which could make you depressed. Be careful how you speak to the people you love as a word or two could be misplaced thus causing more chaos than necessary. Try to do what you can to balance your personal and professional responsibilities and don’t take work home.
Aries, Libra and Capricorn
Aries: Unexpected travel and expenses are expected while conflicts and disagreements in the workplace may also be the scene. There could be delays in daily life. During travel or when heading to appointments make sure you give yourself plenty of time. It is better to be early than late.
Libra: Your financial situation may go through a roller coaster. Some sort of a goal or wish may be granted during this time. This may be a time to articulate through writing, poetry, or messages. There also could be rift in family matters. During this time double check your tasks including the time it must be completed. Furthermore, make sure all correspondences are delivered.
Capricorn: Financial hardships may be the focus of this energy. Studying and focus may also be a problem. Be careful with your skin and stomach. Make sure you take a spiritual path and cleanse your skin and stomach continually.
Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio
Aquarius: You may have difficulties with your friends due to not keeping your promises. Be careful during any travel. Be focused on your studies and double check your work, i.e. work and school. Anything that was lost during the last retrograde will now suddenly appear. Keep your promises if you make them.
Taurus: You may find yourself disconnected from people. Be careful with your financial situation as you may suddenly have unexpected expenses or finally put yourself back together. Take care not to discuss feelings of the heart as they will be misinterpreted. But don’t hide your feelings either, try to do what you can not to create unnecessary chaos through worries.
Leo: Your financial situation may go through a test period. Family issues should be treated with kid gloves. Keep your professional life in sync. It’s time to slow down and not invest until you investigate further.
Scorpio: Your financial situation is soaring. But be sure not to let opportunities slip by you. As they say, what you bring in you may have to pay out. Be very supportive of your own support system. Do not borrow for new business or anything currently. You may find out something that you never knew. Prepare yourself to embrace changes in your life and remember, it’s all good.
Survival through the energy is very possible, and this will be made possible through patience. Normally I would say just relax and breathe deep, however, how can I possibly say that during the Mercury Station Regression period June 19 through the 23? This will be pivotal time, when we will all be surrounded with the Eclipse energy of the Solar Eclipse in Cancer.
As the regression period continues, we are full speed ahead with Mercury, solar eclipse, and new moon in Cancer.
When Mercury is in cancer the transitional planets, and overall predictions, can fluctuate. Therefore, the combination of Mercury in Gemini and Mercury in cancer, as well as the solar and lunar eclipse, can give you a better picture of what is to come. Please note again, this is not astrology, rather VPAT predisposition. Those affected by the retrograde after Jun 20, will be elaborated first.
Cancer, Gemini & Capricorn
Due to all 3 eclipses
Mercury in Cancer
Cancer: Be careful with your health. Financial gains are possible along with family and spousal support.
Gemini: Charisma is going to attract new people into your life. Financially, things will be better, but be careful of real estate transactions. This is a beautiful June/July.
Capricorn: Financial gains and family get-togethers are possible. Be kind to those whom you love, and practice conflict resolutions in a calm manner.
Pisces, Virgo and Sagittarius
Pisces: Your enthusiasm for learning and being proud of your family members will be good.
Virgo: Wishes are being granted. Youthful energy, socialization, travel, and increased income are possible. You will change how you communicate which will help you grow.
Sagittarius: Watch your health and communication while respecting the privacy of all, otherwise you will lose the respect of many.
Aries and Libra
Aries: Your family, professional life, and finances will be great for you, including a new home. Hard work will pay great rewards.
Libra: Professionally, respectfully and faithfully, things will start to move in your direction.
Aquarius, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio
Aquarius: Success in debt reduction, legal issues in your favor. The harder you work, the better the results. Don’t spend unnecessarily.
Taurus: Communication advancements, self-trust, and financial benefit. But careful of unnecessary arguments.
Leo: Increase in expenses and travel are expected. Watch how you spend. You could be a mediator to many people during this time.
Scorpio: Spontaneous advances are possible. Unexpected travel is also possible, along with religious and spiritual activities. Hard work will be beneficial.
With Mercury in Cancer, people with this sign protruding in their charts will be mainly disposed to much self-examination. There is little choice but to reconsider our distinct understandings and feelings about who we are, where we are going, who are the people in our lives, and why we are here? There is, however, a chance to develop insight into our own self findings.
Mental and emotional confusion with challenging obliviousness are possible. People will love to regard flattering yet effortlessly take offense when it is given. The big lure will be to coddle to, and recompense for, emotional insecurities. Please be mindful of indulgence.
By the time June 24 comes around, there will be many people saying “its ok, Mercury is moving direct.” That may be true, however, the intensity is not clear, nor is it any easier. From June 24 until July 7, Mercury will be moving into retrograde regression.
This period can also hurt business relations and legal issues predominantly involving matters of communications that are congested in some way, which could cause writers block. Therefore, it is practical to take several breaks to energize thoughts.
Diplomacy and inspiration for education, communication, and transportation are subject to glitches under this aspect. It brings travel snags and missed appointments of all kinds. The good things to do when Mercury is Retrograde: contemplate, plan, edit the book/poem/song/essay you’ve been writing, clean house, talk to your pet, listen to music, paint, and catch up on sleep!
Even though things may be a little rough, it’s the best time to figure out how to be as spiritual as possible so you can have, and give, the unconditional love that is deserved.
For Cancers, Capricorns, and Gemini’s, the universe is not done with you yet. Just before we come into Mercury retrograde juncture, especially July 4, 2020, we will have another lunar eclipse but this time it will be Sagittarius/Capricorn. This will be a double whammy for Sagittarius (yes, lovely) and crabbiness for Capricorn.
Once again, this too shall pass as the intense energy is easing up through Mercury retrograde juncture, from July 8 through the 11th. If you are in a relationship, break ups are possible because of misunderstandings. Treat every relationship with kid gloves, otherwise, if it breaks up it won’t be restored again until October 2020 when another cycle comes around to re-visit old issues again.
A planet is defined as retrograde when it appears to be moving in reverse through the zodiac. This customary awareness arises in the illusory planetary motion created by the orbital rotation of the earth in relation to other planets in our solar system. Planets are never essentially retrograde or stationary, they just seem that way due to this visual misconception.
Mercury begins to station direct on July 12 in Cancer and the ease is lifting but not before it prepares Leo’s for their slow growth.
The post regression Juncture will climax July 12th through the 17th, where the intensity won’t be as much, but glitches will be present. In general, the energy will rule opinions and judgement, behavior and socializing info, and all means of communication, commerce, and transportation.
As we move into the heat of summer expect the predictions from 2020 to come alive with family and leadership once again taking up our attention from July 18 through the 26, just touching Leos when our communication becomes self-expressive and manifestation gives us nirvana.
Since Mercury is a very slow-moving planet and it affects almost all planetary signs, it is my suggestion that you purchase a yellow candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with Inspiration oil or Eucalyptus oil and chant the Psalm 70 every single night. This period will last for 3 weeks and it will be hard on all of us.
I have chosen a mantra for you during this Mercury retrograde:
“Om Mani Padme Hum”
(Om meni Pedme Hum)
“Om and salutations to Buddha, presiding spirit of planet Mercury”
Please note that I am not an astrologer. These are universal predispositions and may not reflect the force of what one’s reaction and action towards one specific thing.
Vedic readings are unique in all potential; they are what is known as precautionary methods through the energy that is in place. We can know what the future holds but the key to a spiritual sustainability is the reworking and being the willing participant of change and dual prospective.
I wish you the best in the journey through retrograde.
