Mercury in Cancer: May 28th – August 6th. This is an extra long Mercury cycle as it turns retrograde at nearly 15 degrees on June 17th until July 12th.
Thinking With Your Feelings
Under the influence of Mercury in Cancer, and depending on how it interacts with planets in your birth chart, you may find yourself thinking with your feelings.
Logic and analysis take a backseat to your emotions, and you may make decisions based on gut instincts, just because something feels right to you in the moment. If someone wants to convince you, they’ll have to appeal to your emotions, especially to your need to feel safe and secure.
Don’t Sit and Stew
You may have a tendency to hold back your thoughts instead of communicating more directly. You might even expect that the people close to you psychically intuit what you’re thinking and feeling, with the result being major miscommunications and misunderstandings. Don’t sit and stew in your emotional swirl — just say it!
On a more positive note, you’ll be able to think resourcefully during this transit, and can have an excellent mind for business. It’s a good time to plan for future security, and come up with ideas for strengthening your financial foundation.
It’s possible that you’ll develop more of an interest in learning about cooking, sewing, and other domestic matters, or want to read up on improving parenting skills. You could also long to learn more about history, especially your family ancestors, and may want to work on a scrap book or family tree.
