Mercury Retrograde: Old Flames Reappear

Mercury Retrograde: Old Flames Reappear

Walk It Back
Have you ever noticed that right about the time when everyone starts ranting and raving about another blasted Mercury Retrograde is about the same time ex flames from relationships past start crawling out of the woodwork? That’s because retrogrades are about the return of old cycles, lessons and, yes, lovers. Well, this particular Mercury Retrograde is even more ripe with the ex factor, compliments of the Sun and Mercury under Leo’s influence. The Lion rules the heart and the most romantic sector (Fifth House) of our horoscopes. (If have a hefty number of planets in the constellation of Leo, the effect is triple for you). From August 9 until September 9, Mercury cruises through the amorous stars of the Lion to give us a refresher course in the lessons of opening our heart.

What Goes Around Comes Around
When old flames arrive for the sequel, you can be sure that they have come back around to bring some viable lessons around self-love, confidence and self-expression. We are granted the chance to tie up loose ends, repair previous communication breakdowns and attend to unfinished karmic business in the relationship department. Who wouldn’t relish a second chance or an opportunity for a do-over? Just don’t get too attached to the future, as retrograde romances are prone to shorter life spans, and sometimes even expire as soon as Mercury goes direct. Use this time to get right with yourself, your heart and all of the loves in your life. Don’t leave feelings unspoken or misunderstandings uncorrected. Take an honest look at where you’ve let pride interfere with love and make that change. Do you want to be right or madly in love?
