Cancer: (Jun. 22-Jul. 22): As your monthly astrology horoscope begins Cancer, the month starts off with a 1st quarter Moon in the sign of Libra ruler of wealth, relationships, marriage and partnerships. Many of you could be making big changes in your life and big decision. Where you live and with whom, you love and who you care about. A move or relocation could be in the works or on your mind. Your family structure could undergo changes, new members coming into the world, some members exiting the world, and of course marriages and life altering events. Cancer tries to keep everything peaceful and nice on the home front and this month you search for your peace or maybe your peace of heaven.
The Lunar energy is culminating and intensifying to this month’s Full Moon, a super Moon so called because it’s the closest Full Moon to our earth this year. This has us focused on who is getting along and who is not getting along with each other. August starts off there’s lots of pressure, and we need a break, a moment to lavish ourselves, catch our breaths, and indulge a little bit as this month starts with a flurry of aspects. The month of August has everyone getting used to a new set of planets, Jupiter in Leo your solar 2nd house of money and personal values and Mars in Scorpio your solar 5th house of love and romance so you could be feeling a little out of sorts initially. Wondering where you stand in love or with a child, even a little embarrassed by past behavior. What was up goes down in August and what and who was down comes up. That typically means that there is something we’re focused on, or talking about for a few days. Cancer and Cancer rising can benefit immensely from this month’s planets or not. A good set of personal values and boundaries goes a long way.
Mercury the planet of communication and ruler of your 12thhouse of karma, debts and fears, is moving quickly through the sign of Leo your 2nd house of personal values and money for only about 2 weeks, where the planet of luck and expansion, Jupiter is now transiting. This increases your self-confidence, ambitions, makes you more determined because of the fixed nature of the sign of Leo, and also more kind and magnanimous. Let the past go, everyone makes mistakes. There will be some of you who let go of the past and whiz through unscathed and then others who let their irrational fears get the best of them. Watch your finances though! It’s about having fun, staying positive and maybe indulging yourself. The planet Mercury rules communications or news and in Leo relates to social activities, self-confident, sometimes arrogance, putting on airs or putting on shows, children, education, fortunate matters conjoins Jupiter in Leo education, children, amusement, or foreign matters. This month cancer, forgive and forget.
Mars is in the sign of Scorpio your solar 5th house of pride, ego, dominate, love, romance and children now, where it will re-trace Saturn’s footsteps through Oct. 4th and then pass Saturn’s retrograde degree and perhaps instigates some problems or begins new activities, reigniting old activities we need to integrate this Mars energy into our lives. Sometimes Mars wants to even the score, especially in the sign of Scorpio. Perhaps things will make more sense, as we get a better understanding and perhaps secrets will come out that we were unaware of before. Since mars rules your solar 10th house of career, social status, success, authority figures and falls from grace you are keenly aware that the next embarrassing moment is just around the corner. That being said you have to work on putting your pride aside if you want true love. Since the ruler of the sign of Scorpio is Pluto who’s transiting your 7th house of marriage, partnerships, significant others and competition. Work to overcome feelings of jealousy and negativity. Pluto demands that you be bare-naked in front of your significant other; Oh, bare-naked, emotionally.
It’s easy to get down with Mars and Saturn in Scorpio and enter that dark Scorpio place called hell. By now, you’ve felt it; that overwhelming feeling of doom and gloom. That woe is me feeling, when you’ve asked yourself if this all there is to life? Saturn is half way through its transit through Scorpio and Jupiter is beginning its transit in Leo, along with the Sun and Mercury. By now you know that you have to pick yourself up out of the depths of despair occasionally, and work on your self-confidence or lack of self-confidence. Of course, there will be those times when the grim reaper whispers nonsense in your ear, but on the other hand so will those fun loving optimistic planets in Leo. It’s up to you who you chose to listen to. You could feel overwhelmed with children and partners alike.
Venus in Cancer your solar 1st house of attraction and fresh starts the ruler of home, home finances, moving, security, family and property matters trines Saturn in Scorpio 16° which also rules finances, rebuilding and yet it’s degrees retracing from the last month. Perhaps things get easier with family relationships or we just let things go easier, it’s a more self-indulgent and heaven forbid lazy time. It’s time to get back on track financially, refinance or move. Using your intuition is key to your success now. Venus in Cancer trines Chiron in Pisces and intuition and compassion combine and we’re more nurturing and caring. Somehow and someway, things will work out for you.
Mars is in the sign of Scorpio, which is active, wants to even the score, is forceful, stands up for the underdog, rules finances, power, death, destruction, rebuilding, repairing and financial issues. The interesting thing to note is that Mars is repeating the entire transit so far of Saturn in Scorpio but will lead us into new degrees where Saturn will spend the rest of this year and part of next year. You don’t have to worry about that though until September.
On Aug.03 the Sun in Leo your solar 2nd house of money an wealth, inconjuncts Pluto RX in Capricorn 11° your solar 7th house of relationships, partnerships, marriage and competition along with Mercury in Leo Squares decision Mars in Scorpio ruler of death, destruction and rebuilding and repairing this is typical of bad weather. The Sun, and Pluto are both power players they Sun is self-confident in Leo and Pluto is powerful in Capricorn, again there’s nothing new here since Pluto is retrograde. Cancer has to let the chips fall where they may. Let the dust settle before taking action of making a decision.
Mercury the ruler of communications in Leo inconjuncts Pluto RX in Capricorn 11° ruler of earthquakes, and inconjuncts Neptune RX in Pisces ruler of the oceans to form and a Yod or Finger of God aspect. Indicting lots of self-confidence and courage is needed in the face of whatever is threatening or causing irrational fears. Now, a flurry of inconjuncts starts off the month, indicating a big change in who holds the cards and who has the power. The inconjunct relates to things beyond our control, circumstances and events, but also changes things forever.
On Aug.10 the Full Moon in Aquarius 18°02’ is this year’s brightest Super Moon against the back drop of the Perseid Meteor Shower it should be spectacular if it’s visible in your area. Each Full Moon sheds light on a particular area of your life. This Super Moon sheds light on your solar 8th house of intimacy, jealousy, joint finances, banking and overcoming obstacles. You might even get financial help from an older man or someone important. You will want to check your free Natal Birth Chart for planets, asteroids, and house cusps between 17°-19° degrees to see how the Super Full Moon influences you.
As the planet of love, wealth and marriage, Venus enters Leo your solar 2nd house of money it won’t’ seem like you’re constantly dipping into your wallet to put out fires. It’s time to splurge a little.
The planet of communications Mercury enters Virgo your solar 3rd house of agreements, cars, communications, and clear thinking for another fast transit. Your mind sees facts and mistakes very quickly and you could become the go-to person on the job or at home.
As the Sun enters Virgo, you have all the answers and can probably find a solution or fix whatever goes wrong. The Sun is bright and this is where you shine now.
Mars in Scorpio your solar 5th house of love, romance, children and creativity, inconjuncts Uranus RX in Aries 16° and since Mars rules Aries someone could push you the wrong way or you could push someone else and test your limitations with someone. Avoid getting uppity.
