Mercury will retrograde in Cancer from June 18th until July 12th. During Mercury Retrograde in Cancer, it is challenging for us to see things objectively, as every experience and emotion is filtered through layers of memories and unresolved hurts from our past. Everything that anyone says to us is seen as a personal attack, and we take things far more personally than we need to. Because this retrograde is in a water sign, it means our minds and emotions will be all mixed up and become one. (Yikes!) Childhood memories can come back to haunt us, and we will keep thinking of how our past has shaped us and made us powerful. On the other hand, we can possibly think about how it traumatized and damaged us.
We will feel incredibly emotionally sensitive, and it is best to avoid overly confrontational situations and drama during this retrograde. Even if you want to bury the past, it will feel like you can't, and also, if you try, you might fail and will have to try and try again. Watch out for arguments with your family, and avoid getting too deep into personal situations with your loved ones for the time being, as during Mercury retrograde, you will not be thinking clearly.
