The summer season is here with the transiting Sun in the intuitive water sign Cancer. This energy gets us in touch with our feelings for the love of family, home and country. This is a time we care about others, are protective of our interests and we may spend time by water since the Moon rules this sign. The natal chart of the U.S.A has the Sun in Cancer. Happy Fourth of July. That is the birth of our nation and we try to care for everyone has history demonstrates despite internal opposing forces. While the Sun transits through Cancer we are more in tune with our imagination, feelings, and security. Cancer Sun native may appear cool on the outside but that hard crab shell is to protect their feelings and insecurities. Cancer people can wear a mask of complacency in order to hide their vulnerabilities and in order not to hurt others feelings given they are sensitive to the emotional undercurrents of others. This may cause them to appear evasive preferring not to confront anything too directly so they sidestep issues. Cancers are ruled by the Moon, giving this sign its flowing emotional nature and fertile imagination. They make great friends and are sympathetic, kind and protective. At times they are touchy and emotional preferring to hide or isolate themselves until they feel they have sorted out their feelings. Happy Birthday, Cancer! This summer major planetary energies from Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn plus the North Node in Cancer may be causing some frustrations and uncertainty. It will get better depending on your date of birth with those born middle of June through the first week of July who may have weathered these challenging transits.
Mercury goes retrograde on July 8th in the fire sign Leo, you may already be perceiving that some things are not running as smoothly since Mercury rules over communications will be a time of evaluation over projects and plans, some things may take time, plans change, computers and machinery may malfunction more. Perhaps we can take advantage of the laid back approach to projects and plans. Pace your self during this time and as challenges do come up. This is a good time for research and conscientiousness as you may perceive your fixed stubborn notions are tested during this time, Venus also in Cancer may add a more emotionally sensitive approach to relationships and negotiations. Mercury transits through the water sign Cancer mid-July through August 11th. It will be opposed by Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn so it could be a slow month in terms of getting things done. Mercury turns direct on August 1rst but allow another week for things to flow more smoothly. However, Mars in Leo trines retrograde Jupiter in Sagittarius this month this transit can stir up our enthusiasm and goals. The fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius benefit. Uranus the planet of sudden innovative change continues its trek through the practical security minded earth sign Taurus which will continue to signal a time of unique changes with money, security new ideas are promoted for possessions, money, banking industries, and resources. The keyword is reforming stratagems for business and the economy. Perhaps we will continue to practical and yet innovative during this time. The arts may also benefit to express new forms. Expect more or better uses of electronics to help with management and other business models. Freedom is curtailed by the forces of materialism. We may yet to see if more totalitarian regimes crop up during the six-year transit of Uranus through Taurus in 2025. The last time Uranus moved through Taurus was 1934-1940 that was during World War II. Hopefully, we have evolved more spiritually not to back up tyrannies. Yet the outer planets influence us to create change and reformation as Saturn (karma) and Pluto (regeneration) move through Capricorn which rules over governments. Neptune’s elusive energies help to spiritualize or confound as it transits through its own sign Pisces. The water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces benefit from this transit.
