Mercury Direct In Cancer: July 12, 2020 – Virgo & Gemini

Mercury runningMercury in Cancer will turn direct on Sunday morning, July 12th.   You can expect things to quicken, almost immediately. It’s because once the planet reverses course, it will be closing a square with Mars in Aries. I think this will be super interesting to watch.

Mercury will turn direct at 5 degrees Cancer up against Mars at 8 degrees Aries.  In general, Mercury moves twice as fast as Mars. But in this case, Mars is already running. Mercury has start off slow.  Consequently, Mercury not catch up to square Mars exactly, until the end of the month.  The 27th, to be specific.

For some reason, I think this is comical. Mars in Aries is anything but fearful. He just forges ahead. But Mercury has a message to deliver, always.  Rain, sleet, hail of snow, he’s going to get this work done!

Watch Mercury-ruled Gemini and Virgo this month. I bet you see them striving. Their effort may very well be heroic.

For everyone else, yes it’s okay to sign and whatnot, but we will still have four planets retrograde… and more to come. You can track this here:

For the record, Mercury is already squaring Mars. Post the exact aspect on July 27th, the square will be maintained into August.

Are you a Gemini or Virgo?  Are you feeling this? The urge to kick some butt?

  1. The hilarious thing is I am having 2 therapy sessions for anxiety.
    One on July 8th.
    And the second on – you guessed it – July 27th.

    Mars-Mercury and anxiety is somehow related to a certain degree.

    • Great. One caller told me that now that she has identified the problem, she can deal with it. It was eating at her somewhere within.

  2. A friend wants us to come see if her land will work for a place for us and our wagon-home. One of the dates she’s suggested is Sunday, July 12th. Could be good timing.

  3. Yes, I am striving. Much to do, much to get done. Hopefully me old bones support this. So far so good. And I am not taking on any new responsibilities, just the same old. So if this butt kick energy passes, I won’t be over me head. Overall, I am surprising myself at how much I can get done in a short period of time. Completion is king or I should say queen.

  4. mars’ ingress into aries signaled the start of a square to my mercury/mars conjunction and i’m ready to cut everything and everyone off, if i have to.

    i’m digging in and getting to work clearing out what doesn’t belong because if i don’t use this tension constructively, this mercury mars square echoed with my personal planets will turn to destruction: verbal (mercury) fights (mars). i don’t need that.

    • Funny you should mention fights. I think this kick butt thing is reading because I’v had a few that want to pick fights. I don’t go there and I have had two people hang up on me and then call back and admit to what was really bothering them. They are both oversensitized (mercury in cancer?) to unfair unjust situations they are experiencing in their personal lives. To have to watch these awful things happen to others needlessly is very hard for them. So they are angry but not at me.

  5. My emotions are under stress now and I just have to plough/plow through it but I keep yapping and frantically looking for relief. How do you just feel the pain and do it anyway? Answered my own question. To grow a pair. Sorry I seem to keep yapping on the site. Trying to frantically pinpoint the pain that is and was and spirit it away.

    • “Trying to frantically pinpoint the pain that is and was and spirit it away.” Have you seen Hayao Miyazaki’s animated film “Spirited Away”? Your comment made me remember it has been a long time since I’ve watched it.

      • I can’t lie to you Mokihana, it’s been a long time 🙂 I have been watching animes these days because Neptune transit
