(Mercury enters Cancer at 4:04 pm)
*All times EDT
“It seems my heart is made of tissue paper; I wish the world would handle it more delicately.” Richelle E. Goodrich
The “Winged Messenger’s” transit through maternal Cancer (until June 26th) enhances our sensitivity to our environment and our emotions. With Mercury’s passage through the sign of the Crab, there can be more of a mental fixation with wanting to logically understand/figure out/detail what we are feeling, in the present moment, as well as wanting to chronicle what we have gone through in the past. Accordingly, this placement of Mercury is particularly excellent for studying such things as history and genealogy. (Carl Jung, b. July 26, 1875, who coined the phrase “collective unconscious” had both his Mercury and Venus conjunct in Cancer; this concept refers to the idea that our deepest unconscious mind is passed down to us, genetically, and is not based upon personal experience.)
With Cancer also being a cardinal water sign, Mercury in Cancer can impact our communication style in such a way that our emotions or private inner world are potentially more apt to bubble up and spill over into our spoken or written words now, which can result in our revealing, perhaps, on occasion, more about ourselves than maybe we had intended. On the other hand, this placement of Mercury is excellent for helping us to connect/bond with other people on an emotional level. It is also a very intuitive placement for Mercury. (*Note: Mercury will be re-entering Cancer on July 19th through August 12 due to its upcoming retrograde cycle.)
Overall, Mercury transiting through Cancer focuses our thoughts/generates news stories on home and family related matters; on antiques; women’s issues; on real estate and mortgages; on issues of patriotism, protectionism, homeland security; on agriculture, farming, or the food supply; on cooking (it is an ideal time to take cooking classes or write a cookbook); on the restaurant industry; the boating industry.
Question for Today: What part of your past do you consciously cling to the most?
