Mercury leaves Gemini, one of the signs it rules, for Cancer. Mercury expresses strongly in the sign of the Twins, and it helps sharpen our minds and our talent for commerce and contracts. During its time in Cancer, from July 12 through 31, our minds will turn to home, food, and family. It also will sharpen our memory: use this time to look back over the last 13 months of Jupiter’s time in Cancer so you can honor how much you have accomplished and how much you have changed. Spend extra time savoring memories of how much you cared for others and of how much care you received in turn.
