Mercury retrograde in Cancer
With all this activity in Capricorn it’s important to bear in mind the impact on its opposite sign of Cancer. We can picture this polarity in various ways. Capricorn as the state, Cancer as the people. Capricorn as cold practicality. Cancer as the feeling of belonging.
And with Mercury moving retrograde in Cancer from 18th June to 12th July, we’re looking at a time of misunderstandings as Cancer tends to see things, or rather, feel things from a tribal perspective. We can already see this with the reactions to the murder of George Floyd, where the cop comes to represent all white people and the victim all black people. Another way of looking at it without the tribal overlay is in terms of uncontrolled authority and the victims of oppression, regardless of ethnicity.
The Cancerian concern with history and heritage is also part of the discussion and I expect the mutual misunderstandings regarding commemoration of the past to continue at least until Mercury leaves the shadow zone of its retrograde on 26 July.
Go well and stay well
