You may need to let certain important situations play themselves out much longer than you would normally think is reasonable to get the best outcome. This will require a particular kind of trust that does not come naturally in the world. Therefore, delay important decisions till you have full confidence that you really understand what is happening. For this to work, you will have to know when you don’t know; you must be sensitive to when you are traveling through a fog. Awakening is a very different feeling from sleeping.

Written in the Planets
Just a few hours after the Moon enters its home sign of Cancer today, Mercury also enters Cancer. Having the symbol of emotions and the symbol of the mind both in such an especially sensitive, receptive, cyclical sign could indicate a day when suddenly everyone seems to be feeling much more deeply than they were just a day or two ago. Yet those feelings and impressions could ebb and flow frequently. So it might be a wise idea to choose your environments, companions and other sensory inputs consciously, particularly if you’ve been feeling at all overwhelmed lately.
Over the course of today and tomorrow the Moon will echo the major aspects that Mars recently made to objects early in the cardinal signs; Mercury will do the same over the course of this week. This suggests an emotional-level and mental-level encounter with whatever issues of anger and desire came up for you in late May — and with the familial/generational and social/political layers of that material. With Mercury in the Moon’s sign, there could be an especially intuitive understanding that comes through, and listening (over reading) might play a bigger role.
Mercury in Cancer can also be an especially imaginative placement, with some fine print: it helps to find creative ways to express your mind’s meanderings. Give it a job, a purpose; this should help prevent your imagination from turning inward and growing small fears and problems into outsized versions of themselves. The Gemini Sun opposite the Great Attractor offers another reminder to keep perspective on anything that feels too large to understand clearly, especially if you find it particularly compelling in any way. There’s plenty else surrounding you to help you keep your bearings.
