    I'm wondering if it's possible to have too many internal links in one article directing to another article be bad? If I had an article that linked to a relevant internal article 5-10x, can that be bad for SEO?

    NO, Wikipedia does a lot of inner page linking and it doesn't seem to have a problem.

    because my pages that used to rank #1 naturally around June-July, but now it seems my rankings have dropped drastically. I dont do SEO, nor has negative SEO been done to my site. So I'm just trying to figure out the possibilities.

    No your internal linking structure is probably not the cause.

    I would wonder though why you would link to an article 5-10 times in a single article though, seems a bit redundant.

    My articles vary from 5000-8000 words, and the keyword is there. So naturally I link to the other article. I could just link 1-2x, but readers skim so I like to link a few times in articles of that magnitude.
