Mercury in Cancer, things to do

Astrologer heed thy own advice!  Yes, don’t try to get anything done in a hurry under a Mars Retrograde! My husband has been attempting to renovate a bathroom in our house since the end of April. It’s been non-stop interruptions, and the typical Retrograde returns, the wrong bathtub was delivered, then the wrong tiles, plus we keep changing our minds about what we want. So glad Mars turns Direct tomorrow. Let’s get this job done already.

Unfortunately, as predicted with Mars being very powerful as it changes direction and turns direct, the terrorist attack at the Istanbul airport was one last Mars Retrograde  attack. Sending blessings to those who were killed and their families, plus the hundreds injured. 

June 29 Mercury enters CANCER to blend our mental chatter and our conversations with our feelings. We are analyzing through an emotional filter and feelings will be more tender, sentimental, receptive and nurturing.  While Mercury is in Cancer with Venus and the Sun, Mars in Scorpio and Athena, Neptune, the South Node and Chiron in Cancer-that’s a lot of water element planets. The upcoming July 4th New Moon in Cancer features all of these planets including the Moon-that’s 9 planets/asteroids in water, article coming soon.

While Mercury is in Cancer June 29- July 13th  things to do:

Cancer is the First Cardinal Water sign of the mother and children, it is the sign ruled by the moon.  Cancer is MOM, families, home, our roots, ancestors, our moods, our emotional security needs, literally where we live,  our emotional grounding, our early childhoods, our tummies, what we nurture and how we nourish ourselves or not.  Real estate, food and endings are also Cancerian 4th house energies. This is the sign/ house of privacy, symbolic midnight, the womb, everyone’s source. 

TO DO –

Have lots of family dinners, house parties, BBQ,’s happy family gatherings, get togethers, gatherings and generally lots of good eating. FOODIES rejoice. Cancer energy is all about the tummy’s fulfillment.

This is very fertile energy if you are trying to get pregnant. Or give birth to anything metaphorically speaking. 

Think about your Mother, Cancer is the Mother, your relationship with her which is primary to every human on the earth. We are our mother’s my Tibetan Buddhist teacher impressed on me. Understand that you are your mother, by virtue of having been part of everything in her life as well as her mother cellularly is phenomenal. Think about that. I know it drove me crazy for years. It is so hard to accept that we are our mothers. The Earth is our mother too. Think about all the billions of women who have given birth to every person who has ever lived. What is the state of women in the world today? 

Your stomach may be more sensitive while Mercury is in Cancer. It’s a good time to watch how meditation calms your nerves and tummy. Also be aware that you are what you eat. It’s a good time to change your diet and eat what feels good and nourishes you, not what you want to eat, or just enjoy. 

Mercury in Cancer is literally about digesting, How much info are you actually digesting in the overflow of info these days? If you are feeling overwhelmed perhaps its a good time for a fast. Just as it is healthy to take a break from eating to allow the body to rest and heal itself even for a day, it could be beneficial to take an info break too. Research shows that people are addicted to their smart phones. It’s a holiday weekend coming up in America and Canada as it is both countries Birthdays. Take a break from your phone. Millennials  don’t know life without cellphones the way us oldsters do. Just give your brain and your tummy a rest. 

FAMOUS CELEBRITIES WITH MERCURY IN CANCER

Diana, Princess of Wales,  Nicole Kidman, Natalie Portman, Lana del Ray, Pamela Anderson, Ariana Grande, Gisele Bundchen, Angela Merkel, Jessica Simpson, Khloe Kardashian, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Iman, Judy Garland, 

MEN

The Moon is in TAURUS June 29-July 1st. 

The mood becomes slower, more stable and cautious when the Moon is in Taurus. It is time to simply enjoy being in the Garden of Eden of this beautiful planet and to enjoy our physical senses and the beauty all around us. 

These are largely feminine energy days- the Moon transits Gemini from July 1-3rd but then we will  be literally swimming on the July 4th New Moon watery elemental flood which continues until July 10. Do expect lots of rain and flooding.

There is one difficult aspect on the 29th moon inconjuncts Saturn in Sagittarius. 

if you are too stubborn or overly cautious you may miss an opportunity to travel, to discover something new or to test your faith in yourself.

Mind bellydancing, weekend astrololgy

Time is frigging going so fast,wow July is speeding by. I’ve got so much on my plate as I’m sure most of you do. 

July 11 Moon is in earthy all business Capricorn, as of late on the 10th.

GET GOATEE weekend, You should enjoy some lovely goat cheese and a little mountain climbing would be perf too.

Capricorn Moon you know what that means. The usual CARDINAL CROSS thing. Will we miss this aspect when its gone?

FULL MOON JULY 12 @ 20 degrees Capricorn at the start of the last Decan.

Moon enters MAD SCIENTIST AQUARIUS at 8:07 pm PDT

Time to emotionally detach and study the fascinating  as Mr. SPOCK would say or Sheldon from Big Bang Theory the emotional wrecklessness of most humans.  FREEDOM, revolutionary thoughts, weird and wacky stuff. Be wild and chaotic, inventive and WI FI when Moons in the AIRWAVES the perfect description of Aquarius.

BIG NEWS is MERCURY the fleet footed messenger flying into CANCER waters late July 12 PDT

on JULY 12 at 12:45 am EDT

MERCURY Re-enters CANCER  July 12/13 -July 31 Thinking about nurturing others.

Mercury  went Retrograde at 3 degrees Cancer and overtakes that point on July 16 and zooms right through home emotional turf all of July. Mercury adapts to whichever sign he travels through. Mind is of the AIR element and rules mutable 3rd and 6th signs of GEMINI and VIRGO and Cancer is Cardinal WATER, ruled by the MOON.

Air into water is would be like a typhoon or a Hurricane. Water into air is evaporation in the scientific world.

Mercury in Cancer is the mind of the mother, who thinks of taking care of others needs  first. Mercury is comforting words and conversations. This aspect is soothing, mellow, emotionally tender, crooning.  It’s FOODIE talk shoes, Women’s conventions, renovators, nurses, communicating with or about kids, water talk, speaking from the feelings not the head.  This aspect helps us to heal ourselves through being conscious of our feelings.

The MIND moves into the Belly of the whale, the safety of Mom’s lap, home turf.  Reminiscing about childhood memories,  Watching and talking about sad movies  and weeping. Yes millions of women are sad about the recent info about the reality that broke up the Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams fantasy from The Notebook with the impending fatherhood of Ryan with Eva Mendes.  I’ll write about that when I get some time.

Mercury, considered to be a hermaphrodite sign, needs to learn how to balance in the emotional world. All brain with no feelings makes one rather like a Nazi, all cold metal, robotic.  Another initiation of the MIND/Brain into the Feminine. 

What came first the thought or the feeling?

I attended a workshop by the HEARTMATH institute when I was in Sedona in April. It was really fascinating. So check out their research, Link below.
