Mercury begins its retrograde journey today, dear Cancer, and during this cycle that lasts until the final day of July, you may encounter the need to review financial affairs, income, and budgets.
This can be inconvenient but preferable to throwing yourself into new commitments or agreements that may lose their appeal or glamor at a later date. There can be a change of mind or interest, possibly even a bit of regret when it comes to what’s said or begun now and in recent days.
Mercury begins its apparent backward turn in your sector of resources but then retreats into your sign on the 19th for the remainder of the cycle before turning direct again. Take the time to re-think your sources of income and how you spend your money during this period.
Some money-making ideas or ventures may go on hold due to circumstances beyond your control. However, this can lead to finding new ways of doing things that work wonders for you.
Come at old problems from a new direction or perspective. Today’s energies are friendly despite possible misunderstandings. You can feel refreshed by others’ open-mindedness now.
The bigger picture blurs the more you try to fix it in place. Well-chosen words seem to fall short today. Instead of speaking, you may choose defensive silence now.
You are wise to reevaluate the relationship between belonging and belongings while thoughtful Mercury travels backward through your 2nd House of Possessions.
Consider how much your sense of self is wrapped up in what you own or wish to own. Take a step back, or sideways, and recognize that you are more than the sum of your parts.
With a total solar eclipse in Cancer behind you and a lunar eclipse still nine days away, there is a chance to catch your breath and also gain some perspective.
There is still a lot of pressure and an ongoing battle to find a balance between your personal and relationship needs, with the more you can understand this the better.
The key to understanding this is to look beyond the typical definition of a relationship. There is a push for balance between anything you are married to, whether it is your job or any other pursuit.
Today’s Quote: “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
