Characteristics of the Zodiac Mercury in Cancer

Apr 14, 2008
The Sun is given the most credit when it comes to the zodiac. It is the information people give out when someone else asks "what's your sign?" But the other planets of the zodiac have importance that shouldn't be thrown away. Mercury influences how a person thinks and how that is portrayed to the outside world. Learning, communication and expression are all housed here. It also dictates whether a person moves through life with a strong sense of direction or a tendency to detour.

Those who have their Mercury in Cancer are deeply intuitive thinkers who rely more on gut feelings than logic or material proof. Highly biased, it can be hard for them to make rational decisions when something they are unfairly opposed to is involved. They have exceptional memories, especially in areas that relate to data (names, events, dates). It is unlikely that they will work in a logistic field (like math or science) since they don't allow much space for opinion. Writing or teaching in a creative field would be a better match. Their instincts do allow them to maintain success in these fields that allow for emotion. But the appreciation of others will be more important to this person than any monetary success.

Fiercely loyal, they value their relationships with others to a point that it becomes a part of their own identity. Their lives are ruled much more by emotion than by logic and pragmatism. That can cause them to win some battles and lose many others but the habit is impossible to break. Their best relationships will be with those who are appreciative of the sympathy but able to shut off the valve when the Cancer person is getting overwhelmed. Those with their Mercury in Cancer usually aren't aware that their valve is running them dry until it is too late.

They love other people as long as those people don't set off the Cancer warning bell. What sets off this bell usually isn't even obvious to the person that is hearing it, but it is an indication that something is not right with this situation or being and they need to be backed away from. To those who are instinctively deemed to be "good", this person is a loyal and sympathetic friend or partner- willing to listen and comfort anyone on nearly any issue. It can reach a point where this person takes those problems on as if it were their own and genuinely suffer alongside their friend. It is hard for these people to detach themselves once a connection has been formed, even if the other person isn't worthy of all of that dedication.

It is therefore very easy for these people to over extend themselves and become drained of energy. They can become so involved in helping others that they don't save any energy in reserve storage for themselves. Stress related health conditions like insomnia, panic attacks and stomach pains are common under this sign. Meditation, yoga and other relaxation techniques can make life more tranquil.
