Mercury’s Reflection in Cancer & Gemini, 07 June to 01 July 2014
We know you’ve been already feeling the turbulence of Mercury Retrograde (MRx) coming since the Approach began 22 May, certainly calling loud and clear that all bets for forward motion are off, even a few days before it officially begins. Being in awareness about Mercury’s Approach & The 5 Things You Need To Know, are you now ready for some necessary retreat and yes, by all means relax time to officially begin?
Where Will You Find A Request Returning You to Nurture Your Perceptions?
Mercury will affect two separate areas of our lives as he backtracks through Cancer until 17 June, and then finishes off his review and redo passage in Gemini until 01 July. Follow our weekly Empowerscopes on Empower Radio for your individual forecast where reflection wishes to personally find you. Tune-in every Sunday, as each and every sign receives a weekly breakdown and personal focus as this transit plays out from above in our lives down here below. Our goals are to ultimately assist anyone with the proper awareness tools to align, and in this case realign your peace of mind during changing times!
Where Review, Rerouting and Retreat Are Favored For You
While Mercury Retrograde affects just about anything that moves in life, looking at the simplicity of your Sun Sign points to one specific area of life you’ll be personally asked to honor our Messenger’s requests. A closer look at your natal chart (calculated from your precise hour of birth determining your Rising Sign) provides even more intimate details as to where reflection is ideally favored.

Reaping the “RE” Reward Under Mercury Retrograde
Remember, this is the true time to get our dictionaries out and revel in the “re” action words, for Mercury’s backwards motion from 03 degrees Cancer back to 24 degrees Gemini will only cause resistance if we do not heed this mighty call. As we start off this necessary rest period, Mercury communicates with a weak trine to Neptune at 07 degrees Pisces, asking for us to be discerning with what we perceive within our thought banks, being Neptune is a planet that can engage deception along with hiding the reality of things. While trine relationships do cast off a sense of ease and flow, we are advised to not allow our imaginations to “run wild” as these two sensitive water signs make contact. This connection can allow a positive channel to speak strongly between our conscious and subconscious realms, wherein, as always, it is the value of taking pause within the SILENT LISTEN that ultimately assists in avoiding any dreaminess and spiraling off into a lack of focus.
As Mercury re-enters Gemini on 17 June, expect the typical Mercury “upsets” and “tricks” to increase and be a natural part of the movement you will encounter until 01 July. Many will sense a lack of persistence, passions and instinct wherever the latter degrees of Gemini lives within their personal natal chart under Retrograde. The demands to master taking extra pause within our moments to respond in calm to the changes that will be displaying themselves around us will be requested. As our Messenger backtracks within The Twins -the sign of duality guided by the mutability of air- it will be the true test of recognizing the stirs of information circulating around us that may be highly inaccurate, superficial, and simply not worth reacting to.
Double Layer Cake of Reflection Begins 13 June
It will be equally wise to be on the look out for your upcoming LunarOScope 13 June for the Full Moon in Sagittarius, which will also ask we aim in further reflection where The Archer will cast off completion and release, as another waning phase begins. As this normal and natural time of the month for reassessment decreases our lunar light once more, under Mercury Retrograde, the calling for review becomes extremely intense. Further responsibility to slow down, re-work, and recognize our current limitations will have us all notice spontaneous feelings around, redefining how we experience our freedoms and disseminate knowledge. The Moon Void of Course periods over 13 June to 27 June equally cast off a “triple layer cake” of reflective request.
Think Mercury Retrograde Doesn’t Affect You?
Those wishing to react and remain in resistance to the normal flux of changes that Mercury’s “vacation mode” causes involving our schedules, routines, communications, information exchanges and any mechanism that moves -deciding instead to go forward with long term plans- will find themselves with intense lessons to learn as all will end up being riddled with errors. Anyone’s fee will choosing otherwise certainly will experience the definition of insanity- and the time spent later on having to redo things could have simply been avoided. If we deny this necessary request of review and reflection, we completely ignore what we are meant to be learning from the valuable reassessment experiences that this passage truly does present to us.
Beneficial time is wisely spent getting all unfinished business within these areas of our lives reassessed, reviewed, and rehashed. What old projects are not done where Cancer and Gemini affect your life? What can you research? What have you forgotten about? Who haven’t you spoken to from connected to this area in a while? Revisiting what has already been placed in motion -especially what has occurred since the last Mercury Rx in February- the past now asks to be cleared up, opening the doors to make way for new beginnings that will be much safer to embark upon once the passage concludes.
To Do and Not To Do Under Mercury Retrograde
Remain in the eye of any possible storm around you, as the genuine request for listening and a patience pace is all the more required for another Mercury Rx round of review. These handy tips can help bring ease over this upcoming period to allow personal success to be reaped!
*Expect CHANGE: in travel, routines, communications & schedules to occur suddenly
*Give yourself extra time to get where you’re going
*Back-up information, replace or upgrade technology already in place
*Spend time in the RE’s:
Relax, Rest, Reread, Rewrite, Revisit, Reconnect, Reflect, Redo, Recharge!
*Have Plan B (and Plan C, D or even E if necessary) always ready to go
*Gravitate to Responding vs. Reacting!
*“Freak out” when changes come up
*Rush: speaking, driving, whatever involves movement in your life
A great practice is to take pause & count to 10 before doing anything!
*Sign important documents
*Initiate or buy anything new that you wish to have long-term success with.
ie: Get married, start just about anything- especially a relationship, business, adventure.
When to Slowly Move Forward Under The Shadow
As the Approach began 22 May, when Mercury was last at the 24 degree Gemini point he will return to by 01 July, we started to see what we will be called to truly reflect and reassess under the Retrograde passage itself. Until 16 July, we are under the Shadow period, where it will take Mercury this much time to retrace his backwards steps until he is back at 03 degrees Cancer where he officially began his request for review 07 June. Et Viola! We’ll be complete for another review session where our Messenger is concerned until Autumn 2014. Know, under the Shadow, it is safe to move forward once more, but do be sure to still take on an air of caution and make sure the details involved are correct and double-checked.
Lexigrams and Mercury Retrograde
One last piece of star secret advice comes from the wisdom of Lexigrams, what’s really in a name. As we poetically phrase the anagrams we can derive from any word, name, or in this case, title: we can spell out the truth that leads us to also discover what we are best to do under this passage called Mercury Retrograde to find our resolve within it.
