Mercury in Cancer in the Birth Chart
Their minds are influenced by deeply rooted emotional patterns. The whole past tends to be important. Life experiences are important to create these roots and feel more secure. Unconscious desires can cause these people to observe some facts and ignore others, which can result in prejudice and interference with logical or objective reasoning.
Sometimes, if Mercury is under a lot of stress, these people can be quite false, albeit unconsciously, without realizing it. This positioning also indicates good memory due to the emotional intensity associated with the thoughts. There is also a tendency to absorb a lot of information without realizing it. In fact, much of the mental process occurs at an unconscious level and these people end up learning things even if they have not been paying much attention.
The subtlety of influences
Owing to the natural empathy associated with Cancer, people with their Mercury in this sign of the Zodiac can be easily influenced, more readily able to absorb the attitudes and opinions of those around them. Their thinking can be influenced on the emotional side and as regards more everyday matters. With this positioning under tension, these people can become fervently religious or extremely nationalistic, for example, as they are liable to changing their opinions constantly due to the influence of others. Because they can be quite sensitive, they tend to believe that everything that is done or said in their environment is specifically aimed at them. Working on this tendency of theirs is important for them to develop their own opinions and not feel that they are constantly a target for other people.
The home, the intimate life and the sense of belonging
Whoever has Mercury in Cancer in their natal chart can think a lot about their roots, as the desire for family ties is an inherited trait of Cancer. It does not necessarily have to involve actual bloodlines or next-of-kin; what they want is the sense of belonging to a family. They really enjoy domestic and family tranquility. This position can also bring considerable skills in the business world. Household and food- and consumer-related matters, as well as real estate, are also favored.learn more about the meaning of Mercury in Astrology
