Feel something brewing? With semi-quiet skies this week, the Universe is allowing you to tune into the more magickal energetic influences of the Universe… This is the final week of a #6 Universal Month. So,…
Light-winged messenger Mercury is the planet that swings closest to the Sun, speeding through a single sign of the Zodiac in around 3-4 weeks.
In the art of Astrology, this small spinning celestial ball activates our communication styles. It affects how we connect with others whilst also influencing how we think, travel, move and process information… not much then!
But what's worth knowing, is that in addition to the position of this planet in your natal astrology chart, Mercury has a daily influence on our collective horoscope, determined on its current Zodiac sign, plus any major aspects it makes and of course.... whether it's currently moving direct, or in retrograde motion (the horror!)
Before you read on, you should know that the collective horoscope you're about to read is just half the story. You can more accurately predict what each day will bring with your totally personalized Monthly Astrology Forecast. Get yours here
When Mercury spins through Cancer, the soft and sentimental cardinal water sign of the Zodiac mandala what does it mean for the collective?
Under this astrology, we all tend to filter life through our feelings.
The Mercury-Cancer alignment can be somewhat anxiety-inducing. Those who are prone to worrying may find themselves overthinking and worrying more than ever. But if you can keep your emotions in check and minimize your fretting, you can use this alignment's positive side to actually leave you feeling refreshed rather than ravaged!
Use Your Emotions To Communicate
With its ruling planet the Moon, Cancer is a sign of changing phases, or moods. For this reason, you’ll likely find that you’re relating to people based on what your emotional body is picking up from them, rather than what they’re saying with their words.
Expect this astrology to bring out the emotional communicator in you.
And likewise, other people are more likely than usual to pick up the inside track on what’s going on in your emotional landscape… or are they? Despite expecting everyone to hold the same impressionable and empathic gaze that you do, they may not! (It'll likely depend on where Mercury and the Moon sit in their personal charts). So, try not to assume you’re all connecting on the same level. You may still need to spell it out for the less emotionally aware amongst us...
Question Facts vs Fiction
Under this astrology, it's prudent to try not to confuse what you feel about a situation for the facts of that situation. They're not the same thing, however much the trickster planet Mercury would have you believe it.
Under this transit, it can also take us all a little longer to process information. That Mercurial quick-witted expression just doesn't cut it here in Cancer. Maybe it’s due to Mercury having to get past that tough outer crab-shell before it penetrates your soft internal space, but don’t rush to respond. Take as long as you need to, in conversations, decision-making, transactions, and travel. Patience is an art, and Mercury in Cancer can help us all to learn it.
This astrological transit is also one of the very best for activating our inner listeners. You’ll likely think nothing of spending an hour witnessing your friend’s emotional unburdening… and they’ll do the same for you.
Focus on Family
The energy of Cancer is family-focused so tender conversations with your kin will feel sooo much more scrummy than casual meet-ups with mere acquaintances. Scheduling in time with those you love deeply is a must with Mercury here in intuitive Cancer, as is keeping your creature comforts close. If you love to talk long into the night with friends, invite them round! If letter writing’s your thing, invest in some beautiful paper and a brand new pen.
So, are you destined to use this Mercury in Cancer to refresh yourself or will you fall victim to this overly-sensitive transit? Find out with your 100% personalized Monthly Astrology Forecast. Get yours here.
