While in Cancer, Mercury has a tendency to make you take everything personally. Funny, pleasant, and positive interactions make you feel awesome, but arguments or even slightly snarky comments make you feel like you’re hitting rock bottom.

June 18 2020 Mercury Retrograde – and Its Energy!
Mercury is a flexible planet and its energy can be quite immature at times! It is often observed that Mercury has few morals. It’s not immoral, it’s amoral: it seeks understanding and recognizes connections and possibilities without particularly engaging in the rights and wrongs of those possibilities. Unconscious habits may trip you up now so try to be as self-aware as possible, and be willing to accept responsibility for your role in any interpersonal problems that arise.

Mercury’s Greek God – Hermes!
Mercury is the name given by the ancient Romans to the Greek mythological god, Hermes. Mercury is depicted as a male figure having winged sandals and a winged hat, indicating the ability to travel quickly. He was the official messenger of the ancient gods and goddesses and, as such, governed communications. Mercury was only the messenger of the gods.
