Emotional Conversations as Mercury Enters Cancer

When the messenger planet moves back into Cancer on July 12 after his retrograde phase --splitting his time between his home turf of Gemini and the moody waters of Cancer -- our brains are a bit water-logged and confused. Emotional issues that were on our minds back in early June may resurface now for deeper clarification.

We may feel less light-hearted and flexible in our choice of thoughts and words now that Mercury is in the sensitive and moody sign of Cancer. We may also find that we're more prone to emotional reactions in conversations, and may even resort to passive-aggressive tactics in conversations to protect our feelings.

Our fear of rejection and emotional abandonment is higher than usual. Even though Mercury is no longer retrograde, we may still feel hung up on feelings and emotional attachments from the past. Cancer is one of the most sentimental signs of the zodiac and can easily get fixated on nostalgia and idealizing the past. It's hard to think clearly when our emotions are all out of whack.

The best way to navigate the super-sensitive waters of Cancer is to remind ourselves daily not to take things personally. Wait for all of the information and ask more questions before jumping to any emotional conclusions.

This is an excellent time to speak about our feelings and to come from the heart versus the head. We're all more intuitive now and can use this time to listen to our instincts rather than over-thinking everything. This is a time to feel our way through situations -- but with a gentle quality of sensitivity. Avoid complaining, whining or having any tantrums.
