Don’t Take It Personally | Mercury Enters Cancer Horoscope

Hi Friends,

Have you been feeling more sensitive lately?

On July 4th, Mercury entered the same sign as the Sun for a sentimental two week journey through Cancer.

When Mercury was in Gemini, you may have spent more time talking, socializing, networking, and connecting the dots between people and projects.

But now that Mercury is in Cancer, you’re probably feeling more soft and tender than usual. 

You might notice that your focus is shifting toward emotional security, private matters, and your intuition.

And your feelings could really be on the surface, resulting in deep, personal conversations and a lot of sensitivity.

It’s good to feel your feelings…

But it’s also possible to get clouded and confused by emotions right now.

So let’s explore the influence of Mercury in Cancer and help you get through this sensitive time.

A Sentimental Mood

How well do you really know the people in your life?

While Mercury is in Cancer from now until July 19th, you’ll be more interested in creating emotional bonds with others.

Your relationships could become meaningful because you’re willing to share your inner feelings and build trust with others.

And if the situation is right, you and someone special could open up your private worlds to each other and take your connection to a much deeper level.

While Mercury is in Cancer, there’s no such thing as TMI. 

You want to talk about people’s real experiences, not just the shining parts of life that we share to impress one another.

Exchanging personal secrets is one of Mercury in Cancer’s favorite ways to bond, so don’t be surprised if someone shares highly personal information with you, or tries to pry into what’s really going on with you.

You might also feel more sentimental and could catch yourself daydreaming about the past or your childhood.

Mercury in Cancer is a great time to catch up with family members… especially older relatives who have special stories to tell about your family history.

It’s likely you could feel more emotionally insecure while Mercury is in Cancer, so be mindful to not be too clingy or touchy.

Instead, use this time to build your inner security, follow your intuition, and find healthy outlets to express your emotional needs. 

You could be moody over the next two weeks and you might not think about things as logically as you’d like to.

So do your best not to take things personally.

Chances are you’re just feeling more vulnerable than usual.

Overall, this period will deepen the intimacy in your life and make you a better listener.

But there will be at least one day while Mercury is in Cancer that you’ll probably want to retreat into your shell.

Hurtful Words

No one likes getting their feelings hurt or being embarrassed.

That’s why July 12th is a red flag day to watch out for. 

On this day, Mercury will be in a challenging position to Chiron, a minor planet that triggers insecurities and helps you heal them.

The energy of Chiron is a lot like a surgeon. It cuts you open, but only so you can heal your injury.

With Chiron in Aries challenging Mercury in Cancer, you could have a “foot-in-mouth” moment where you overshare or say something inappropriate that embarrasses you. 

It could also be that someone says something insensitive, hurting your feelings and bringing old wounds to the surface.

Of course, it’s possible that you could be the one accidentally hurting another person.

No matter your situation, Chiron will bring powerful medicine to you on July 12th…

But just like real medicine, it might sting or not taste too great.

If you find yourself retreating to lick your wounds and deal with something embarrassing in private, use the opportunity of feeling raw and vulnerable to explore how you can heal more permanently.

It’s best if you avoid important or sensitive conversations on this day, unless you’re prepared to deal with intense emotions. 

Although you may have the best of intentions, it’s possible that one or both people could get more hurt than they already were.

If in doubt, just lay low and wait a day. 

Thankfully, this influence will pass quickly.

A Moment Of Divine Beauty

The most positive day for communication while Mercury is in Cancer will be July 17th.

This is when Mercury will shift into blissful balance with Neptune, planet of imagination, compassion, and art.

You could get deeply inspired on this day, and even glimpse into the mystical secrets of the Universe.

Conversations will flow smoothly, so if there’s someone you’ve had difficulty communicating with, or if there is a past hurt that needs to be resolved, July 17th is the perfect day to do this. 

You and those around you will feel generous and forgiving.

And if you have artistic leanings, today could be a day that you create a masterpiece.

So be sure to take advantage of the planetary alignment on July 17th, because if you do nothing, you’ll feel at ease but won’t tap into the true potential of the day.

Tender Loving Care

Did you know that if you speak kindly to a flower, it will thrive? 

And if you speak cruelly to the same flower it will struggle and wilt?

This is true not just with plants, but with people too.

With Mercury in the nurturing, motherly sign of Cancer, now is a perfect time to think and speak nourishing words and ideas.

See if you can shift any negative self-talk about your body or life circumstance into a kind, and supportive narrative.

It’s amazing how much opens up and flourishes when you have a loving, encouraging attitude. 

And don’t underestimate the power of listening. This is one of Mercury in Cancer’s greatest strengths.

Sometimes the most healing thing we can do for another person is listen to them express their pain without trying to fix anything. 

So lend an ear to someone in need, and listen closely to your own needs too.

Enjoy being more connected to your feelings over these next two weeks!

Your intuition will lead the way…

With Joy,

Luna Dragonwell

    Yes, I have had a bad relationship with my father all my life and it seemed to get a lot worse. I decided to move away to another state with my parents and I agreed to help purchase a home which was suppose to be handed over to me and my kids when it would come to the time when he couldnt pay for it anymore or if they decided to move back to our home state. Well they decided to sel the home behind my back and keep all the money and found out that they basically gave most of the money to my sister and now they are moving in with her and her husband and leaving me and my kids on the streets. So this situation made my relationship a lot worse with my father. So not sure what really made him decide to sell the home without caring about my opinion and not care about what would happen to my kids. I want to know if someone gave him the idea for their own benefit.

    Yep! Started feeling it 7/8! Drives me nuts!! But, as a Scorpio, anything emotional always does. I’ll be glad when it passed! Especially concerning a special someone.

    I started feeling the shift on the 3rd. I felt overwhelmed with sadness and could not figure out why. Being on vacation this week, I decided to go to Lake Placid, where I have found peace within in the past. I was flooded with emotions about many things when I got here. I shed many, many tears. Out of the blue I heard from someone that I had been thinking about. We both were finally able to say some things that needed to be said for a long time I woke up this morning at peace with myself and I am going home.

    Thank you for your guidance, advice & insight.
    This forecast really hit home for me as I have been going through so much since my Mothers passing this past Easter.
    One family member has been so hurtful & I’m not proud of the fact that I haven’t always responded very nice to his insults & harassment as a result.
    I wish I knew how & when all of this will end , I’m at my absolute wit’s end .
    Praying & hopeful that everyone involved in our situation finds peace & closure soon. 🙏♥️

    I have this need to want to save everybody in the world. Help everyone who asks for it, hints towards it, or seems as if they need help. Although I am a stay at home mom of a 2 year old daughter and my boyfriend works hard to take care of us and helps tremendously with our daughter. While I on the other hand am worried about everyone else in the world who needs help. And if I don’t help it just eats at me and eats at me. I have no self love. I don’t even think about myself or my needs. All my thoughts are negative and I can’t handle more than 1 task at a time without getting panicked and shaken. My go to is to cry. I cry a lot. Thinking about future stuff past stuff my mistakes. And I know what I need to do I know the answer to all of it but I can’t stop my brain from thinking it.
