Planet of communication Mercury enters emotional Cancer today. During this transit, we could all communicate through moods and feelings rather than logic. You want others to know what you’re saying without us having to say the words, which can result in you feeling like you aren’t being heard. Learning to embrace your sentiments and speak your personal truth is challenging but necessary.
You could feel a bit anxious, mostly due to the many items on your to-do list. Instead of stressing yourself out even more by looking at your ever-growing list, try to complete a few chores to make your tasks seem less daunting.
On an emotional level, you’re ditching your usual reactions to all new things that make you live outside your comfort zone. You might even decide that you vibe well with some of the changes. This can help you feel freer as a result.
Remember, you can swim at your own pace and live and love on your own terms as long as you’re honest about your feelings. Don’t deny yourself the chance to express your emotions even if it hurts to do so.
Today’s atmosphere is both healing and stabilizing. Mercury arrives in Cancer early this afternoon, which signals a more productive approach to dealing with any emotional unsteadiness. Our focus begins to shift towards stabilizing our home base, recognizing that we must have a firm foundation before we can hope to expand our influence. We are likely to feel increasing optimism, along with a more comfortable feeling of responsibility. Whether true or not, we may begin to believe that there are identifiable guidelines to follow, which provides a welcome sense of security. We should be careful not to place so much weight on the feeling of optimism that we feel emboldened to cut ties with those around us in an effort to enhance the building sense of freedom.

We could equally call today’s Tarocope, Distractions, as this is how you will likely feel faced with so many choices and options, such is the nature of the 7 of Cups. There is a strong feeling of not finishing your tasks today simply because you took on too much. There is a co-dependent feel to this and a ‘people pleasing’ element to it also. Well I have some news for you:
You can’t please all the people all the time.
And neither should you. While you seemingly cannot choose wisely for yourself today, letting others choose for you will leave you frustrated and annoyed with yourself. It’s like a merry-go-round you can’t get off, but you can. You can choose not to get on in the first place, you’ll just find it hard to resist the offers and temptations of the day and therein lies your dilemma…
The grass isn’t always greener on the other side and once you’ve abandoned one thing for another, you’ll not be satisfied with either. Don’t say yes to someone when you really want to say no. Choose what you will do today, choose what you won’t and be good to yourself. If they’re offended, that’s their issue and not yours. Asserting yourself isn’t always easy but it’s your right and it’s also a choice.
