Mercury in Cancer – A Bridge to Your Heart

Mercury, the planet of communication will be transiting Cancer from May 28th at 2:09pm EST until August 5th. This transit is teaching us the importance of clear, kind and compassionate communication.


Building a Bridge from the Head to the Heart


Cancer energy is connected to our feelings and sensitivities. Mercury’s intellectual energy does not always like to dive into the emotional realms. When we allow ourselves to work through this time, even if it’s uncomfortable, we can foster a connection between our perceptions and our emotions. We are building a bridge from the head to the heart. 


Mercury in Cancer: Being Honest with Ourselves


Feelings are not always clear or easy to understand. This is why it’s crucial to become honest with ourselves. Ultimately this transit is helping us to communicate our emotions, but in order to do so we have to look at what we are feeling.

This means paying attention to our emotional responses. It means being aware when we are triggered, or when we are excited. When we are happy or when we are sad. Like a scientist we can research and explore our feelings.

This is not something we have to do alone. In fact sorting through our sensitivities can feel overwhelming and reaching out for support is important.


Compassion is Key


As we begin to understand ourselves on a deeper level we might discover some perspectives that leave us feeling uncomfortable. We might feel shame, blame, sadness or other heavy emotions. This is why compassion is key. When we can become compassionate with ourselves and others we allow our emotions space to flow. 

There are a lot of intense astrological transits occurring this year. We are moving into a new existence on Earth. However, the old is still alive. As we build bridges of compassion between our heads and our hearts, we are stepping into a new Earth.

Kindness is important during Mercury’s transit through Cancer. Are we being kind with ourselves? Are we communicating kindly to others?


Face the Facts


Kindness doesn’t mean only being nice or staying positive. During these times it is crucial to look at the facts instead of sidestepping what feels heavy. We must face the reality we created in order to create a new one. This new reality is one where we start within. We respect, love and nurture ourselves first. As a result future generations and the planet herself are respected and protected.

Now is the time to go deep down to the core. We are asked to get honest with ourselves about what is happening in our lives and how we are feeling about it. That is intense. So let’s support ourselves through the process with kindness and compassion.


Mercury in Cancer + Mercury Retrograde


From June 18th until July 12th Mercury will be retrograding in Cancer. Building the bridge between our heads and our hearts is a process and patience is necessary.

We are given a chance to update how we communicate with ourselves and others. Retrogrades are nothing to fear or worry about, instead they give us an opportunity to revamp and replenish.

North Node Enters Gemini

May 5th 1:48am EST through January 2022.

The North Node signifies what we are collectively learning and yearning to understand. This is a significant shift which occurs approximately every 18-20 months. The nodes of the Moon dictate where we experience Eclipses. Since November 2018 the North Node has been in Cancer. This is a time to reflect on what we have learned since November 2018 as we now embark on a new assignment.

The last time the North Node was in Gemini was October 14 2001 through April 14 2003. Those years shaped our collective beliefs, attitudes and outlook of the world. These themes are now up for renewal. We are invited to change our minds.


Supermoon in Scorpio

Every year, May’s Full Moon packs a punch; because it falls in the intense sign of Scorpio. This Supermoon is a time to look behind the veil and experience the palpable pulse of the Universe. Like our hearts beating within our chests, we have to still ourselves to feel it. Scorpio Supermoon energy is extreme and may have our hearts racing. This is the final of a series of Supermoons in 2020 and is sure to leave it’s mark. This Supermoon is all about trusting our intuitions and committing to our multidimensionality.


Saturn Retrograde

May 11 12:09am EST until September 29 2020

Retrogrades are not something to fear or dread, but they are a change in direction worth knowing about. Saturn’s annual retrograde invites us on a journey within ourselves. The responsibility shifts from serving the external world to listening to what’s unfolding inside of us. Instead of taking orders, we are now asked to be our own leader. It’s significant to note that on this day Mercury will be entering Gemini. This adds a layer of freedom and fresh air to the mix.


Venus Retrograde

May 13th 2020 2:45am EST through June 25 2020

Venus retrograde is a time when planet Earth is invited to look at every facet of it’s relationships. This includes love, romance, family, friends and our relationships to ourselves. Venus retrogrades approximately every 18 months and is worth having on our radar.

She’ll be transiting the free spirited energy of Gemini. Gemini energy wants to be able to make up its own minds and we are being asked to think differently. Thinking differently about ourselves, others and the collective will allow us to level up.

The Universe is giving us a key and setting us free from the cages of comfort we have built for ourselves. We are learning change is not only needed, but with the right attitude we can feel safe and steady through the shifts.

Also on this day, Mars will enter Pisces; giving us an invitation to soften our masculine sides and soothe our souls.

Jupiter has been busy shifting the systems of humanity as it transits the sign of Capricorn. So much has changed since Jupiter entered Capricorn in November 2019. As he stations retrograde we are given a chance to reflect and integrate these external shifts into our internal worlds.


Sun Trines Pluto, Jupiter & Saturn

May 15-22

In January 2020 and April 2020 we experienced some revolutionary transits involving Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn coming together in Capricorn. Read more here (

As the Sun moves through the Earth sign of Taurus, these energy shifts are going to start to solidify and take form. It’s as if a new foundation of cement has been poured for humanity and as the Sun connects with Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn throughout the week of May 15th, we begin to see that cement harden. This will bring a welcomed sense of stability for some or a desire to tear out the cement and re-pour it.


Gemini Season

May 20 9:49am EST

As the Sun shifts into Gemini, where it will remain for 30 days, we are given a dose of fun, flight and freedom. Gemini is an air sign and like a fairy it wants to fly around. It wants to feel free to let the wind take it. This is a time where that freedom and adventure may come in the form of ideas and aspirations. Communication is a big theme here. There’s a power in laughing, smiling and having some fun. Even if there is chaos around. Gemini season doesn’t want us to be so serious. Instead a childlike attitude is key. With the North node recently shifting into Gemini, along with Venus retrograde in this sign, this Gemini season will be a legendary one.


New Moon in Gemini

May 22 1:39am EST

The New Moon in Gemini is a time to get our stories straight. We all tell ourselves all kinds of stories. This is a time to take an honest look at the narratives that cycle through our minds and ask ourselves if they are really what we want. Opening our minds to a new story takes time and this is not something that needs to be forced. Instead, we will find a freshness from letting go of what feels fearful, flat or simply boring. Swapping them for a tale which comes from our hearts.

During this New Moon Venus retrograde will be connecting to Mercury. Venus retrograde is sorting through old relationship dynamics. Mercury represents our minds. This New Moon may give us flashes of inspiration and our minds may finally understand outdated dynamics.


Mercury Conjunct North Node

May 28 8:19pm EST

Mercury is the planet of communication, logic and intellect. It’s our minds and how they are hardwired. Often, Mercury’s energy plays out as clarity or conversely confusion. The North Node represents our collective direction. It’s the chapter we are studying, and the direction we are heading.

As Mercury conjuncts the recently shifted North Node in Gemini, we are given a chance to understand where we want to turn next. There’s an opportunity to wrap our minds around the directions we are travelling and if we want to stay the course, or make a change. We could feel confused about how it’s all going to come together, but in time the details will come together. This is a time to check in with ourselves and do an honest assessment of which track our trains are on, and if they will get us to the destinations of our hearts.
