"Is it possible for home to be a person and not a place?"

-- Stephanie Perkins

Retrograde Mercury joins up with the sentimental Sun in Cancer this week. This is a real opportunity to connect to our guts and all the feelings swimming around in our stomach that are normally hard to digest. Our minds and consciousness are processing so many feelings now that we may have a hard time keeping up with facts or logic.

It's a watery world at the moment, and the influence of water brings us downward, into ourselves into our roots, our past, our core. What is home and where is home are the two big questions of the moment. Mercury Retrograde in Cancer has us digging into our nostalgic archives looking for clues. Of course home is within, but we'll be keenly aware of all the ways we've tried to find home in external sources during this time.

Luckily, this powerful influence under the Mercury Retrograde in Cancer joining with the Sun will help us to reconnect to what really nurtures and supports us from within. We have the chance to draw from internal sources of nourishment now In fact, we don't have much of a choice to avoid these internal sources lest we feel totally abandoned and bereft. External sources will only prove to be painfully fallible now. The source is within and that is the real source we are seeking anyway.

Pay attention to your needs, feelings, moods and memories during this time. Allow memories to serve you to grow rather than getting stuck in past ruts. We can learn from our patterns now as long as we are willing to grow beyond our past attachments -- this is the key. We can honor these cozy roots but we must keep evolving beyond what we've become familiar with. Our concept of home is ever shifting and ever changing.
