"I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realizes an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don't have complete emotions about the present, only about the past."

Virginia Woolf

"I think it is all a matter of love; the more you love a memory the stronger and stranger it becomes."

We've been drowning in the murky, mystifying haze of Mercury Retrograde in Cancer since June 26. Have you been experiencing overwhelming sensitivity to everyone and everything around you for the last three weeks? If you've been crying for absolutely no reason, blame the preponderance of planets in expressive, emotional Water signs.

Now that the planet of communication is finally going direct on July 20, you'll be able to find your way home through the fog. It definitely hasn't been a typical retrograde, because with so much energy in security-oriented Cancer, "looking back" has taken on a whole new meaning. When Mercury goes out of phase, it's perfectly normal to experience a bit of nostalgia -- for old lovers, friends, departed family members, even the city you used to live in ages ago. But when retrogrades occur in the sign of home and family, it isn't mere nostalgia -- it's deeply affecting and potentially life changing, especially after it goes direct and clarity arrives.

With Mercury going direct in such a soulful sign, it's time to nurture your capital "S" Self by releasing the toxic wounds of your past. Take a deeper look at any ancient childhood pain that's been playing on rewind in your mind since the start of summer. Give those memories one last compassionate overview, and then let go. JUST LET GO. Sometimes you have to purge and heal the past in order to live fully in the present. This is one of those pivotal moments.
