Well, it has been a long, long time...in fact Mercury has been in Cancer, swimming through those oh so sensitive seas since the end of May! Usually, Mercury will zip through a sign in about two to three weeks, but this was over two months! So, you have had a special opportunity to experience the mystery and beauty that graced and altered your Perceptions and Communications...for over two months your mind took a rather circuitous journey through those familiar Waters of Home, Security and Centeredness.
Now of course for each of you, your own position of Mercury, and its particular alignments or aspects within your own chart, forms the fundamental determination, the critical factor for how you perceive, process and communicate in your life...But know this, as transiting Mercury moves through the Twelve Signs every year it creates for you this need and opportunity to experience your natural sensibilities as they become modulated through these other facets that are the Circle of Life, the other signs of your Zodiac.
After all, every sign is within you, for you are the Zodiac as much as it is around you too. You are a unique fusion of these Twelve Energy-Forms, your true nature found in these variations of Planetary and Sign combinations, and this fulcrum of energies creates the individualized self-unfoldment or self-becoming of your faculties and awareness, revealed by your own Astrological Chart...But all of the Signs are present, active and integral to your complete experience. You must understand and master them all, for this is how you become Self-Masterful in this life, and in Life after Life to come.
Your rather extensive sojourn in Cancer is done for this year, it is time now to shift your Mercurial sensibility...You are moving out of the Waters and into Fire. Having forged deeper connections with your origins and roots, you should feel a greater centering and purposefulness, and as a response you will experience a resurgence of your need to express yourself more truly, as your new-found authenticity springs from, moves out from this Well-Spring of your Source.
It is time for your mind to leap from those waters and into the Fires of Leo...It is time to stretch your mind, to perform upon a new stage, to act through a new role, to reveal the love that is yourself...Your mind needs this now, to be recognized and appreciated, for you take your delights in Leo by and from "The Performance"...You find your joy in Forms of Self-Realization, for you need to know that "I am that, I am".
But then you must turn this experience around, and consider not only what you have but who you are and need to offer...For as much as you may yearn and desire recognition and respect, to be self-fulfilled, honored and seen by the other for who you really are...so also does the one who offers this to you.
You cannot have what you will not give...
You must look upon the other as yourself.
Returning their kind recognitions by your own, you
Smile, as you look them in their soul-filled eyes and say,
"I See, I see who you are...
I see and Love you too".
