CANCER JUNE 21 – JULY 21
The theme for you, for July, August and September, is one you may initially find difficult, if not challenging. It’s putting yourself first. While many Cancerians are passionate about certain activities and pursuits, which can involve everything from some element of home life to career, this is often balanced with a situation in which one particular obligation or longstanding commitment, or sometimes even a hobby, devours time, money and may create tensions with others. The presence of Mars, planet of focus, in Cancer from June to July 20, will have raised timely questions about these activities and your priorities. This means you’re in the midst of a powerful review, personally, professionally and in terms of long-range goals. It may even be that destiny, in the form of non-negotiable changes, prompts this rethink. Whatever the case, recognise that this is about breakthroughs, which could include leaving familiar habits behind you. The sooner you let these go, the more swiftly you’ll begin exploring the new, unfamiliar avenues of activity opening up. Be bold. Some may seem so new you’ve no idea where to begin. Have faith. Each step will lead to the next one.
In 2015 the practical Saturn moved to accent your day-to-day routine or job, if you go to one, and most of all, the balance between your activities and the return you get for your efforts. What does this have to do with money? For a Cancerian, a lot. That’s because, as an intuitive yet sensitive water sign, you sometimes confuse anxieties about life and concerns about money. During the last half of 2017, you’ll be untangling these, and in numerous situations. If you have a career or even earn money with a part time job or hobby, you’ll have faced challenges which, in turn, have forced you to review how wisely you use your time. Add August’s two eclipses, on the 7th and 21st, which shake things up, and what’s least expected could bring exactly the breakthrough you’ve been needing, and in a form you’d never have anticipated. The secret is to explore every idea or offer, including those of little interest, which are impractical or would lead to major changes. First, this is about exploration, not committing to anything. Second, the ideas and people you encounter will contribute to your wealth and well-being, but how probably won’t be clear until much later in the year.
FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIPS
At its core, Cancer is the sign of growth, whether it’s a family, a garden or a business. While many Cancerians come from large, loving and noisy families, and so form relationships that mirror that warm and chaotic atmosphere, as many grew in tight-knit and, occasionally, complicated settings that prompted a search for something more nourishing. There are as many tales of childhood as there are Cancerians, yet whatever the background, 2017 has been a time of questioning, making changes and yet more questioning. While this is unsettling, it triggers discussions with everybody from close emotional ties to colleagues and even neighbours. Tempting as it is to look for that perfect formula for living and loving, this is about learning to recognise the potential in the unexpected and, better yet, the opportunity for breakthroughs, personally, with those closest, in life itself and all that its twists and turns offer. Expect those that are most important from October 10 onward, when bountiful Jupiter moves to accent relations with those closest, and brings warm rewards for having the courage to raise, and discuss, sensitive matters from the heart. The benefits of these conversations will ripple out into the lives of those around you.
YOUR ECLIPSE BREAKTHROUGH
Discovering it’s time to shift your focus from once-rewarding pursuits and recognising the promise others hold, often in surprising settings.
You’re in the midst of a powerful REVIEW, personally, professionally and in terms of LONG-RANGE GOALS. It may even be that DESTINY, in the form of non-negotiable changes, prompts this RETHINK. It’s about breakthroughs
