Water on the Brain

Mercury scuttles into intuitive Cancer tomorrow and I find that I have very little I want or feel the need to say about it. In fact, I had real troubles even finding people in my chart database with this placement. I found just one- the most thoughtful & together teenager I know.

But aside from all of that, Mercury is in Cancer from tomorrow effectively delivering us all with a shot of water on the brain. OK, this placement can be a little moody and possibly even diva-ish in its expression (depending on the Moon), but it is also incredibly sensitive, empathetic and absorbs information like a sponge.

People with Mercury in Cancer may not tell you very often how they feel, but rest assured, when the birthday card arrives, it will tell you all you need to know- and then some. This is feeling beyond logic, words to treasure and adding warmth to known truths.

Mercury in Cancer can also be subjective, paranoid and mistrusting, and these feelings can sometimes overpower you- particularly at that time of the month. Regrets and “could have dones” can weigh heavily, so it does pay to let your mind work through the fear.

Poetry, history and words from the heart will enthral you, and a good (lockable) journal is a safe way to express your needs and practice all those wonderful crabby putdowns.  And if that doesn’t work, throw on some good loud emo music and eat chocolate- that will.
