Summary: We are about to enter a portal that marks for us the beginning of a new phase or cycle, however, the universe wants to ensure that we don't take with us certain wounds that have created self-limiting beliefs. With Mercury conjunct the Sun as it enters Cancer, we can change our beliefs by addressing or rather facing them and taking action to mentally shift them. Instead of "feeding" our negative emotions, i.e. dwelling on them, thereby providing them with sustenance, we are to break the cycle of getting lost and caught up in them by interrupting those thought patterns, thereby reprogramming the brain and starving the body of the chemicals that cause the emotional response.
