The Mercury in Cancer Woman: Get to Know Her Better

She loves her comfort and is at her best in familiar places but this is not to say that her curios spirit doesn’t have a lot of fun.

Mercury in Cancer woman

Just to put this into perspective, the Mercury in Cancer woman takes everything really personally thanks to this lovely sensibility and vulnerability of hers.

She can’t help herself but express her emotions in the most obvious manner possible, to everyone around, whether they are friends, acquaintances, strangers, family, it doesn’t matter.

The Mercury in Cancer woman in a nutshell:

  • Positives: Loving and affectionate;
  • Negatives: Fearful and worrisome;
  • Soulmate: Someone who is just as sensitive as her;
  • Life lesson: Learn to appreciate herself more.

A communicative lady

Her inner voice is yelling in her ears, filling up her brains with words of regret if she hesitates or refrains from saying her piece.

In other words, she can be the most loving and affectionate native in the world, but she can also be annoying, irritating, and straight-up repulsive to some people.

Any disagreement or counter-argument is perceived as an affront, an attack on her self-esteem and confidence.

The only possible solution is to retreat in her shell and wait there for the danger to pass, but this also means that she perpetuates this cycle of fleeing, weakening her resolve with each failed confrontation.

Sure, she does regain her confidence a little if she stays in her comfortable and cozy space, but.

She should learn to control herself to better face challenges, to try to stand tall and bear the brunt of the attack, instead of fleeing for a hiding place.

That’s how she was built, to tap into her primal and instinctual nature, to be honest, straightforward, pure and naïve at the same time.

She communicates a lot less than other people because, in general, she just doesn’t trust other people. She could get hurt, disappointed, filled with sadness and despair, judged. And it’s obvious that she doesn’t want that.

A constant fear and concern are always present in her mind, telling her to stay silent, to keep it in herself, not to put her responsibilities and problems on the shoulders of other people.

And don’t even think that she can’t be funny or entertaining, that she’s the type of girl who stays in a corner, watching everyone, never engaging or communicating.

Oh, she can do that just fine, but don’t go too far or too close to her weaknesses. Think twice before entering an argumentative debate. She can burst out in anger or close up indefinitely.

Something that you should know about the woman born with Mercury in Cancer is that she can get very attached to the past, to her memories, to the little things in life.

A lot of insignificant and seemingly useless things are valuable to her, so don’t even think about picking on this.

These natives can love like no one else did before, at the highest and deepest of levels, with endless affection, compassion, a thoughtful attitude, and a lot of empathy.

What happens as a result of their generosity and selfless approach is that they often get trampled, manipulated and their partners treat them bad.

Appreciation comes in many forms, but when you give it your all and expect nothing in return, some people will actually behave just like that.

Moreover, the Mercury in Cancer women are also extremely sensitive toward emotions, motivations, feelings. When something goes wrong, they blame themselves automatically.
