Happy Birthday Cancer!
I am feeling very in tune with Cancer’s Moon-ruled nature as I write this post from a beautiful ocean front vacation spot I’ve been acquainting myself with this past week. Running along the beach this morning, I noticed the calm atmosphere of the low tide across the shoreline. The waves were breaking softly with only a temperate breeze in the air. Later in the afternoon as the high tide arrives, chaos ensues—the wind kicks up and gusts wildly upon anything in its path as the ocean crashes continually against the shore. Cancer individuals are much like the shifting tides of the sea – they are very complex people with contradictory characteristics, sometimes appearing extremely tough and determined and at other times, they are as shy and timid as a child. It is this dynamic nature that makes our Cancerian loved-ones such charming individuals.
This has been a great year of personal growth for you, Cancer -- and there are plenty of more good times ahead! With Jupiter moving through your tenth house of Public Standing from January to June this year, you’ve seen positive developments in your career or social status. July is your month to be in charge and those around you will support you towards bringing you closer to what you ultimately want and stand for. Networking and striving to accomplish your goals have been a top priority for you and this is all going to lead you to great places if you keep up this hard work. Your partnerships, including current romantic or potential ones, will also be strengthened.
Solar eclipse & new Moon in Cancer
Events leading into sun sign Cancer have been a bit topsy-turvy as we conclude an exciting season of eclipses that began in June. Have you been witnessing shifts? Please comment – I would love to hear about any exciting changes that have affected your life. The last eclipse in this series is today Friday July 1st at 1:54 AM PST. This is a new Moon and solar eclipse occurring at 9 degrees Cancer.
This third eclipse in the series will be the most powerful of all, as it forms a grand cross of the cardinal signs. What does this mean for everyone? Eclipses signify change and transformation. And solar eclipses signify new beginnings – new plans, new promises and new efforts. Situations such as negotiations may get intense or even difficult during this particular eclipse formation. However, know that there is a good ending in store and you may see results as far as six months from now.

With this eclipse occurring in Cancer, concerns regarding your home, family and emotional issues will be a strong focus -- think domestic or lifestyle upgrades. Has a personal relationship run its course? Or are you tired of looking at that same old couch or bedroom set? It may be time to pitch these items you once loved but no longer serve you. If you are a Cancer, especially those born June 30-July 2, you will be most affected. Everyone else will feel a shift of sorts and may be inspired to make necessary changes.
