With Mercury in Cancer you have an emotional, impressionable, imaginative, sympathetic and very changeable mind. You're receptive and sensitive to other people, but your reason can be swamped by your feelings and senses. You learn easier by listening to others than by studying. You're more easily swayed by an appeal to your sympathy than by a rational argument. This is a good placement for a psychologist or psychic.

Mercury is neither masculine nor feminine but neutral: it is silver, reflecting all that it contacts. Mercury in Cancer is therefore similar in energy to Mercury conjunct the Moon, where the emotional, changing, feminine energy of the Moon emotionalizes and makes changeable your speech, thought, and communication patterns. The more aspects you have to Mercury in your chart, the greater and more complex your consciousness. The reflective mind needs aspects for its expansion, and the closest aspect is the most important. In the physical body it rules the nervous system, the arms, hands and shoulders, the lungs and the respiratory tract. Its position by house in your chart is where your mind or attention is focused.

The following celebrities have Mercury in Cancer (and also in the first house for emphasis): Pamela Anderson, Polly Bergen, Rockwell Kent, Jack Kramer, Carl Orff, Allan Sandage, George Bernard Shaw, Achmed Sukarno, Peter Weller, and Gene Wilder.
