The speed of decision making slows down when Mercury is in Cancer, so that these careful, constructive choices can be made. Mercury transiting Cancer is in no rush at all, and in fact can be quite obstinate when pushed. Cancer energy is protective of self and loved ones, and so no decision will be made until every worst case scenario has been explored and accounted for – bringing associated worry that can be seen in increased stress levels during a Mercury in Cancer transit. Find out how your zodiac sign can make the most of these energies with professional astrologer, Kelli Fox.
