Mercury entering Cancer will cause more communications surrounding mothers, home, family, real estate and patriotic matters. Expect more sentimental and emotional discussions during this time. People will express their need for security and protection. Although things may be quieter with Mercury in a mute sign, feelings run deep. Being more sensitive and swaying people emotionally rather than using facts and figures will be more successful now.
This is a playful time where socializing will be most enjoyable. Throwing parties, taking a vacation and just enjoying life is highlighted now. Children will benefit at this time as well as the arts and musical entertainments. Now is the time to enjoy the theater, concerts and visit local taverns to meet and mingle with others.
This is also a heavenly time for finding and enjoying romantic love. A delightful aspect for singles to go on dates and couples to rekindle their romance.
This may be a time of some young women protesting or acting in a shocking manner. Young women may become news stories for something new, unusual or genius.
There may be disruptions or unexpected events in relationships. People may suddenly break-up without any warning or forethought. Or partners may show their love in an unconventional or surprising way. There may also be some surprises with finances or from banks.
There may be sudden fluctuations with money or the stock market. Unusual or taboo relationships or social interactions may occur today. Surprises with art or in socializing.
Mercury opposite Saturn can cause pessimism, delays and obstacles in communications. This can lead to malfunctions with computers, cell phones and other telecommunications related devices or structures.
Mercury and Saturn are in the ‘transportation and communication signs’ of Gemini/Sagittarius so this may be a day of problems with traveling, education, publicity, and emails/documents. Be prepared to have to struggle with some difficulties before all is said and done.
To get the most from this aspect, you will have to work hard, deal with some type of suffering and triple check everything.
This aspect does not make communications easier but through hard work, perseverance and maybe a little help from older/experienced minds this could be a time of some significant academic, historical, or literary achievement. Be prepared to struggle with discussions, paperwork, children, or ideas and take the time to cover all of your bases. In the end you may produce an outstanding accomplishment which could win awards in the future and/or that may stand the test of time
