Well, it’s happening: Mercury retrograde is back in town for June 2020, and no, it’s not messing around.
Adding to a long laundry list of why ‘2020 Is The Worst Year Ever’, this Mercury retrograde—A.K.A. the planet of Mercury giving the illusion of moving backwards—starts on June 18 and is set to wrap up on July 12.
Oh, and it’s unlike any other that’s come before it.
Concerned? We feel you. Keep scrolling to find which zodiac signs will be most affected by June’s 2020’s Mercury retrograde, and how to get through the cosmic chaos (relatively) unscathed.
What makes June 2020 Mercury Retrograde different to the others?
June 2020’s Mercury retrograde in Cancer—combined with a Venus retrograde in mid-June—was always going to be an especially disruptive period in our history.
“It’s notable that during July, the Sun makes a series of tense oppositions to the Saturn-Pluto linkup—power and control struggles seem to lie at the heart of these months. Eclipses bring extreme responses, but [along with] the other astrological influences, it promises to be off the charts.”
How will June’s Mercury Retrograde impact your star sign?
Besides the usual communication issues, technology troubles, and travel mishaps that Mercury Retrograde tends to dole out like Oprah giving away cars, June 2020’s addition is going be a lot about being in your head, making you rethink and question everything in your life.
Why? This Mercury retrograde is occurring in the sign of sensitive (read: moody) and homely Cancer, which means your emotions are likely to malfunction over seemingly unexpected things (hello, subconscious!), and your home and family life is going become front and centre in your mind during this time.
All signs are set to feel the impact, but Cancer and its opposite sign, Capricorn, are going to feel it the most.
How do I deal with this Mercury Retrograde?
Mercury retrograde occurring in Cancer is not all bad! Cancer, being the water sign aligned with sacred feminine energy, our home, roots and ancestry, just wants us to sit in our feelings. And while this can be taxing initially (especially if you’ve been suppressing them), it can also be grounding and nourishing for the soul.
As Mercury rules our brains and nervous systems—both of which have been working overtime to stay safe in the pandemic —this is a time to allow our inner selves to catch up with the current situation.
Our advice? Slow down. Allow yourself to embrace your emotions. Indulge in self-care. And remember, this too, shall pass!
