Friday - - Your Stars -

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.


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.


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
