Mercury in Cancer

With Mercury natally placed in Cancer, one’s inclination is to use the intuition as an informer to the direction that one’s thoughts need to take.

The person with this placement needs to think and communicate emotionally, as well as distribute messages which provide security to others. There’s an indirect bent to one’s speaking style and they’re able to pick up on subtle and underlying messages contained in non-verbal behavior that many of us miss. There’s strength here in imagination as well as a retentive memory which primarily contains a myriad of feeling responses rather than hardcore facts and figures.

The M.O. is to foster a sense of connection through interaction and the goal is developing intimacy, which means that a feeling of honest knowing surfaces as a result of  contact with others. Again, another strength with this placement is the ability to empathize and provide safe, non-judgmental spaces designed for open emotional expression.
