Starting today and until May 6th, Mercury moves through your career and reputation sector, dear Cancer. Your thoughts frequently turn to professional matters, plans, and goals during this cycle.

Your communications have more impact than usual what you express now is likely to be remembered later, so make it something you’re proud of!

Mercury is analytical and rational, and you can apply these qualities quite successfully to long-term goals and planning, but when under strain, Mercury can also be nervous and fretting, so watch for a tendency to overthink things.

Today, your attention is squarely turned towards your personal life even if your mind is trying to stray elsewhere.

Similarities in background might bring you closer to someone in a position of authority today. Details that come up in casual conversation match in an almost uncanny alignment and provide an inroad to deeper communication should you choose to take it in that direction.

The extra attention that’s showered on you puts your work on display and lets your talents shine.

Professional recognition elevates your confidence and may eventually lead to highly deserved civic or career advancement, too. Take advantage of the current cosmic conditions and create common ground.

There may already be some work/life balance tension building ahead of tomorrow’s Full Moon, but with this comes a deeper understanding of your needs on both sides of the fence.

A lot has changed in the four weeks since last month’s Full Moon on the home front and the conflict this created with the Sun in your career sector.

Since then Jupiter has turned retrograde in your work sector, the wind down of your current Mars cycle has begun and you have Mercury helping you to work smarter. Even before tomorrow’s Full Moon brings any work/life balance issues to a head, you are already likely to be onto this.

Today’s Quote: “If you want to be happy, do not dwell in the past, do not worry about the future, focus on living fully in the present.”
