Three times annually, Mercury turns retrograde for approximately 21 days at a time. Since Mercury turns retrograde in Cancer June 7 through July 1, here's some helpful information to use during this important cycle!

In its role as messenger planet, Mercury rules all forms of communication and travel ... and when retrograde, it's notorious for causing delays and misunderstandings. Beware of computer glitches, car trouble, travel delays and difficulty getting plans off the ground. Help yourself during this time by stepping back from decisions, agreements and contracts to use this period to your best benefit. And since you'll undoubtedly notice that your mind can't fully settle on anything, be sure to write down the pros and cons of any ideas that come to mind. Finally, back up all your data and review -- rather than initiate -- projects.

It's also worth noting that whenever Mercury is in Cancer, people can be quite sentimental! To that end, pay special attention to home, friends and family in the coming days.

On a positive note, this period can be fruitful for research, as well as for clearing out old files, returning to old conversations and reconnecting with people from your past. Make the most of this time by reviewing information instead of simply acting on it!

If you're familiar with your own chart, examine the house through which Mercury is traveling for more information.
