June 21 – July 22


As some­body born un­der the sign of the zo­diac that’s all about nur­tur­ing – about nur­tur­ing gar­dens, about nur­tur­ing a ca­reer, about nur­tur­ing a busi­ness, and of­ten about nur­tur­ing a fam­ily, you re­ally en­joy see­ing things grow. Yet at the same time, you crave sta­bil­ity and fa­mil­iar­ity. It’s for this rea­son, you could ini­tially feel that the year of 2019 is some­how un­set­tling – or you will, un­less you un­der­stand what’s go­ing on. The fact is, the world around you is shift­ing, cir­cum­stances are shift­ing and, ac­tu­ally, el­e­ments of your life will be shift­ing as well. As a re­sult, cer­tain fa­mil­iar el­e­ments of your life will be shift­ing dra­mat­i­cally, if not com­ing to an end. While in many cases, this will be a relief, at the same time you’ll won­der ex­actly what’s next, what you can do or plan for.

In fact, if there’s any chal­lenge for you dur­ing this pe­riod, it’s deal­ing with that, not be­ing sure what’s next, or where you should in­vest your time, en­thu­si­asm or, in cer­tain sit­u­a­tions, heart.

The fact is, no mat­ter how many ques­tions you ask, not ev­ery­thing will be clear cut right away. There are sev­eral rea­sons for this. One is of course, as you be­gin the year, there will be two pow­er­ful eclipses, the eclipsed New Moon on the 6th of Jan­uary, and the eclipsed Full Moon on 21st, each of which will trig­ger shake­ups in the world around you, and, to a cer­tain ex­tent, in your own life. How­ever, of far greater im­por­tance for you will be the eclipsed New Moon in your own sign, the Can­cer so­lar eclipse, on July 2nd of this year, which con­sti­tutes a sort of per­sonal new year. All of these are about break­throughs – in el­e­ments of your life and even in your own think­ing. This alone would be sig­nif­i­cant.

But, also, with Uranus, which is it­self the planet of break­throughs and new ideas, mov­ing into a new po­si­tion, and mov­ing to ac­cent close al­liances with fam­ily, but equally with friends and col­leagues, and also in­di­cat­ing a change in cir­cum­stances, you’ll find that what seemed be­yond your reach or, quite sim­ply im­pos­si­ble, even as re­cently as 2018 will change. But even more than that, new ideas and per­haps, new ac­quain­tances will in­tro­duce in­trigu­ing de­vel­op­ments into your life. Uranus moves into the part of your chart that ac­cents such mat­ters on March 6th, and re­mains there for quite some time un­til 2025, so by no means do you need to fig­ure ev­ery­thing out this year.

How­ever, the more flex­i­ble you are to ex­plore new ideas and to spend time do­ing things you’re un­fa­mil­iar with, or with peo­ple you don’t know, the bet­ter off you’ll be. It may seem a bit point­less at the time, but when you move in to the sec­ond half of the year, and es­pe­cially one of the most pow­er­ful parts of that por­tion of the year, which are the first two weeks of Septem­ber, when four of the heav­enly bod­ies are in the down to earth sign of Virgo, the Sun, the ideas planet Mer­cury, Venus and the dy­namic Mars, you’ll find that you’ll get the facts you need. But, even more than that, those around you will also be more in­ter­ested in these prac­ti­cal mat­ters than is usu­ally the case. For this rea­son, you’ll want to ask ques­tions about and learn from ev­ery­thing that arises, ei­ther on your own or with oth­ers, know­ing that the sim­ple act of ex­plo­ration will be re­ward­ing.

But also recog­nise that eclipses con­tinue to shake up ar­range­ments – to cre­ate shake­ups that are timely and pos­i­tive, the wise Can­cer would want to en­sure that all ar­range­ments are flex­i­ble enough to ride out. True, you might want the re­as­sur­ance that comes with feel­ing things are set­tled. But dur­ing a pe­riod when cir­cum­stances, in the form of the in­flu­ence of Uranus ac­cent­ing what you do, are them­selves shift­ing, you’ll ben­e­fit from tak­ing what seem to be chances.

It’s the same with the in­flu­ence of Jupiter, it­self the planet of growth and de­vel­op­ment, which is ac­cent­ing your day-to-day life and your job, if you go to one. Here too, po­ten­tially ex­cit­ing changes are in the air. And while they may seem un­set­tling in the short term, they’ll ben­e­fit you hugely in the long run. The hint from the plan­ets is to go with the flow. While you needn’t fo­cus on com­mit­ments with oth­ers, make a com­mit­ment to ex­plo­ration. Make that your ap­proach to every day of the year of 2019, and you’ll en­sure that noth­ing worth­while passes you by.

New ideas and per­haps, new ac­quain­tances will in­tro­duce in­trigu­ing de­vel­op­ments into your life. Uranus moves into the part of your chart that ac­cents such mat­ters on March 6
