Mercury Retrograde in Cancer

Mercury digs in his heels and brings his journey through Cancer to a screeching halt before kicking it into reverse and backtracking through the ocean of Cancer. This opportunity to rewind past events and review our behavior will bring keen insights, if not revelations, about what we can do to improve our domestic scene.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you create a habit, you no longer have to use your precious and limited daily reserves of willpower to execute that activity. Do it consistently until it becomes a natural process for you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Acting on behalf of another person, you will meet many interesting people. You’re a true friend, and you will try to connect your loved ones with the people who will be good for them to know.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Timing is crucial to your success. It’s not something you have to sense, it’s simple science. You know when you feel most alert, and you’ll make those times count by doing your hardest work then.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The people you love will try your patience. The reason they are able to do this so effectively is that they are the people you love. Your caring makes you vulnerable, and you wouldn’t have it any other way.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There is such a thing as too much inspiration. Ultimately what inspires and motivates you the most isn’t people trying to inspire and motivate you, it’s you taking action and enjoying it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You require an overview perspective that will help you understand where you are. If only life were like those signs at the mall that read, “You are here.” A mentor can act as an objective observer and shed some light on this.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your success is not a function of ability or talent. You have plenty of both, but that is not the magic ingredient. You are competent and work hard, and that is the real reason you will succeed.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Don’t attempt to wing it today. Although your instincts are terrific, you will still do best when you have a structure that supports your goals. Turn to what has worked before. It will work again.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Does your soul have an agenda that your mind doesn’t know about? Today’s evidence strongly indicates that this is the case. What you want doesn’t make sense, but you can’t change that you want it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Simplify, prioritize and eliminate what’s been cluttering your view. Once you define your values, much of what you prize will be represented in the physical world.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Meet your own needs. Once your needs are met, you won’t feel the need to grip the controls of life so tightly. You’ll be still and centered while those around you are caught up in a swirl of high drama.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be recognized for an achievement. This won’t feel the way you anticipated it would. Consider why this is so. Perhaps you are being called to a different kind of achievement.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 26). This year features your strong sense of your unique talents. You’ll stand out from the group and be comfortable in this as you realize you’re headed for big things. You’ll gain expertise in July. In August, you’ll be the recipient of a grand gesture. In October, you’ll protect the integrity of something you hold sacred. Pisces and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 22, 35 and 18.

MERCURY RETROGRADE IN CANCER: What does it mean for you? Though it’s impossible to take back words that have already left your lips, Aries will have the opportunity to reverse the impact of regrettable utterances through action. When all is said and done, what is done is always more impactful than what was said. Taurus will be replaying the events of an important friendship during this Mercury retrograde. Recent events have set an unfavorable precedence, but all can be put right with mindfulness. Instead of being inconvenienced by the retrograde, Taurus may wind up being grateful for it. Mercury’s movements keenly affect Gemini, as it is Gemini’s guiding planet. However, Gemini is also remarkably adaptive and can shift quickly to avoid whatever obstacles are thrown in the path. Gemini will be doing quite a lot of darting and dancing to keep life rolling smoothly over the next three weeks. Cancer may feel that Mercury is undermining his or her authority at home during this retrograde. Cancer will have to take a different approach to get the same respect that came so easily before this transit started. The lesson: The best way to earn respect is to give it.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: In addition to staring in a new television series built around her popular character Cat Valentine of Nickelodeon’s “Victorious,” Ariana Grande is fast becoming a pop superstar with her first solo single “The Way” already certified gold. The talented Cancer was born when love planet Venus was in Taurus, which rules the throat and unique voices. Mars in Virgo shows a hard worker.
