Mercury will turn retrograde at 14 degrees Cancer on June 18th. This retrograde period should be really interesting, not necessarily in a good way. I’m sorry to say that but I’ll explain.
When Mercury turns retrograde it will avoid or rather, it will postpone the time when it opposes Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Saturn is still in Aquarius at this point, so this will be a sort retreat while this other scene sets up.
It’s not only that! Mercury retrograde at the mid-degrees of Cancer will not be significantly aspected, initially. There will be no challenge or significant support.
You may be lulled into some sort of complacency but Mars will ingress into Aries at the tail end of June. It will begin to aggravate Mercury in Cancer as soon as we flip to July. The square between the planets will be maintained clear into August.
It’s not too cool! Think of family fights, custody fights and just upset tummies in general.
I’m sorry to write this but I think it’s worth keeping in mind. We’re not backing into a cushion, okay?
