Mercury also known as Hermes (emissary and messenger of the gods) influences mind, thoughts and speech. Mercury is fluid and adaptable.
In the Water sign of Cancer, the messenger brings forth memories that carries an emotional imprint. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself nostalgic of ”the days gone by” triggered by an old picture or an object representing the past.
“People leave traces of themselves where they feel most comfortable, most worthwhile.”
Imagination and creativity are some of Cancer’s talents and many artists are born with important planets in this sign.
Over the next few weeks, our thinking could be coloured by subjectivity, intuition and emotions. Decision making will be made with the heart or the ”feels” more so than with the head which can be both a good thing and a bad thing. Mercury in Cancer is moody, caring, and emotional.
Here are a few quotes from Princess Diana, born with Mercury in the sign of Cancer:
“I don’t want expensive gifts; I don’t want to be bought. I have everything I want. I just want someone to be there for me, to make me feel safe and secure.”
“I don’t go by the rule book … I lead from the heart, not the head.”
