This week, shiny objects and things of value are within your grasp. Cancer, you could gain a windfall.
The week begins on Sunday, August 1, as the sun in Leo forms an opposition with miserly Saturn in your house of resources. Something you want to do may be outside your budget. And while you could probably cobble together enough to acquire this, deep down, you know you should stay on budget. The challenge for you, Cancer, is sometimes emotion can rule your decisions. But today, it's good to listen to Saturn, as Saturn's goal is to help you become financially secure.
Venus in Virgo, in your house of communication, makes a trine to Uranus in Taurus in your house of technology on Monday, August 2. Love it or hate it, technology is here to stay. Cancer, this is a good day to get knee-deep into learning how to navigate your phone, use productivity apps or download a spending tracker. Today, you may try your hand at editing a video, making music on your computer, or doing art on your tablet.
As this week begins, you may feel an emotional distance between you and a lover. On August 2, the sun in your grounded second house will oppose Saturn in your intimate eighth house, which could leave either of you feeling guarded and unwilling to reveal a deeper truth. Trust takes time to build, and at this moment, patience may be what allows you both to feel the safety you require to unfurl your secrets and your inner truths.

You may sense some tension in your finances as this week begins. On August 1, Mercury in your second house of money will oppose Saturn in your eighth house of investments, which could leave you feeling as though your wealth isn’t growing. However, this doesn't mean the work you’ve been putting in is going to waste. It merely means that sometimes the heftiest pay days can involve delays.

Take care of yourself on Monday and Tuesday -- nobody else needs you right now anyway, though that situation won't last too long. You will have to deal with a weird social situation midweek that could involve you wearing a big smiley mask a little longer than is comfortable. On Friday or Saturday you will be tempted to blow up at a friend or date or random stranger, but try instead to chill and respond with your mind rather than your heart (or fist). Enjoy a big fat lazy Sunday and don't worry about taking care of chores or bills.
