Your ruling planet, Mercury, will be in retrograde from July 6 to Aug. 19. Even though everyone is swayed by this retrograde, most are not hit quite as hard as you are. You already internalize a lot of nervous energy, but during Mercury retrograde, your inner-world may feel like a maelstrom of chaos. It’s difficult to do things correctly when you’re feeling stressed, so make absolute sure you take your time when doing important things and that you double check everything.
However, your summer will still have plenty of light. When the sun enters your first house on Aug. 23, launching the beginning of Virgo season, you’ll experience heightened strength, confidence, and vitality.
Scorpio: You May Feel Like Holding Back Your Energy
Mars and Pluto are both your ruling planets. When Mars joins Pluto in a retrograde that starts on June 26, they’ll both be pouring disturbances into your world. You may want to build a wall around you for protection because any outside force will feel overwhelming. Hiding at home might even feel like the more attractive option at times. However, as long as you infuse your personal time with quality endeavors, it could be a very spiritually enriching experience.
On the other hand, your summer won’t be completely toned down. When the sun enters your ninth house of adventure and knowledge on June 21, you’ll feel like leaving town and seeing something new.
Capricorn: This Summer Will Be A Learning Experience
Saturn retrograde has been infusing your life with confusion since April 17. This retrograde will last throughout almost the entire summer, finally coming to an end on Sep. 6. Since Saturn is your ruling planet and this retrograde happens while Saturn is in Capricorn, it affects you on a deeply intrinsic level. This retrograde is putting you through several challenges and forcing you to relearn how to become a more responsible and productive person. Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean Saturn will stop teaching you.
However, since Uranus, planet of intense and dramatic change, entered your fifth house of fun and pleasure on May 15, you’re also learning an entirely new meaning of creativity and excitement. Who knows? Perhaps Saturn’s lessons are of a more joyful nature than you thought.
