Mercury in the sign of Cancer

The patron planet of intelligence and business acumen, the ability to communicate with different people – Mercury , being in Cancer, enters into a close alliance with its ruler, the Moon , and therefore the mind will follow emotions. The best gift of the messenger of the gods, a good memory, will manifest itself only if the owners od such Mercury in the sign of Cancer are sincerely interested in the topic of study or work, otherwise they will prefer to hover in the clouds, write poetry or novels about mystical adventures.

For the same reason, these owners of Mercury in Cancer remember insults for a long time and their sophisticated mind is able to write a revenge script that will be envied in Hollywood. They often take good and sincere participation for granted, so their good attitude should already be considered a reward, because most often these individuals are dissatisfied with even the closest people who are trying to please them. Getting along with them is not easy, because they need to understand the origin of increased moodiness.

Features of behavior

In communicating with the carrier of Mercury in Cancer, it is necessary to take into account the position of the Sun: in Gemini, Leo, it makes such individuals less vulnerable and dependent on the emotional state, but more quarrelsome and demanding. Solar Cancer or Pisces has a hard time coping with mood swings. Intellectual success and friendships are completely dependent on the psychological state.

If there are no special negative factors, the following features are inherent in these natives:

  • exuberant imagination, imaginative thinking, non-standard approach to business issues;
  • the need for solitude in the bosom of nature, by the sea or the ocean, to reboot and get insights before making important decisions;
  • apolitical, but a tendency to criticize the social system and traditions of the native country and religion;
  • strong intuition, extrasensory abilities, an innate understanding of the occult sciences and good contact with the subconscious (they just know how to act without having direct evidence);
  • easily irritated, and then angry for a long time, and most of all at their intemperance;
  • selectivity in contacts, a long test for loyalty and compliance with the ideal;
  • thirst for new sensations and impressions, a hysterical reaction when it is impossible to fulfill the desire instantly;
  • shyness, it is difficult to take the initiative and start a conversation, but if the interlocutor turns up first, the flow of the native’s words cannot be stopped.

In stress or emotional arousal, the carriers of Mercury in Cancer forget even the elementary foundations of knowledge, do not understand where they are going and what they are doing. Therefore, they need to pay special attention to auto-training and meditation in order to maintain self-confidence.

Mercury in Cancer

Male and female

A rich imagination instantly draws a possible scenario of probabilities, according to which the main culprit of the problem is not him, but those around him.

Manipulation of feelings of guilt is a key karmic flaw that poisons communication with the native.

In every person, she seeks parental support and approval, making friends with anyone who sincerely gives them. In a calm, confidential atmosphere, she reveals a tender and vulnerable soul hidden under the shell of feigned bravado.
