You’re a sensitive soul and long for closeness. It could be easy for you to take the misunderstandings that may arise during this cycle to heart, like a rejection of you personally. Safety is important to you and it would be easy for you to feel threatened if a careless word is uttered. With both Uranus and Pluto stirring the pot with the basic security needs of Cancer, it can be an emotionally pressured year.

Therefore, during a Mercury retrograde cycle, your best bet is to plan to spend relaxation time in one of your favorite places – your home! During these cycles, write in your journal to clarify your thinking about what you can do next to gain a greater feeling of safety. Reflect upon how making changes in your life at this juncture can enhance your security, but wait to take new action until Mercury goes out of retrograde.
