Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)
Cancer: Happy Birthday Cancer! This could be an important year, with the Eclipses now on the Cancer-Capricorn axis and the third set, following those that came for your last birthday, and then hit a sort of peak with the Eclipses last January. So whatever may have been going on early in the year around New Years and last year, whatever spin your life has taken since then, this July there will be some other crisis of sorts, or a great releasing of energy that will build upon the trajectory you’ve been on, or set your forth on a new one. Eclipses take stagnancy, tension, underlying repressions that just naturally occur, fears as well, and blows them up—so you have to deal with them, and see yourself clearly. So on July 2ndthere will be a Total Solar Eclipse at 10 degrees Cancer and so most of all affecting those born the first week of July. This Eclipse is loosely, quite loosely opposite Saturn, but more definitely and positively supported by Uranus by sextile in Taurus. So Taurus rules your house of long-term desires and goals for manifestation, as well as greater associations with people that you surround yourself with, and consideration for the social public, humanitarian concerns in general. Uranus here, actually, the sphere it naturally rules, is powerfully oriented to really boost your humanitarian feeling, connect you with all kinds of strange characters, and for you, yourself, really keep open what might come towards you, and in what way your future might change. You become quite open to possibilities with this placement. So the Solar Eclipse triggers the progress of Uranus, and feeds it back into your self-image, with which you will be able to help identify yourself, or reflexively, refrain from identifying yourself, and embody whatever you want! The opposition to Saturn, though loose, portends that a relationship, the glue of a certain relationship, keeps your grounded, or at certain times holds you down, and you might have the restless feeling of needing to disappoint someone or break away in order to fully take advantage of whatever the world spins at you, for your own sake. Then on July 16ththere will be a Partial Lunar Eclipse at 24 degrees Capricorn and so hitting that relationship part of your chart soundly. This Eclipsed Moon will be conjunct Pluto, and loosely, Saturn as well. So, this is a big deal relationship-wise, for you. A Lunar Eclipse generally means the energy that ends things, and though new beginnings are always worked in, Lunar Eclipses definitely feed out energy that doesn’t exactly return. It feels final, staggering, and emotionally intense, Lunar Eclipses in general, but it’s super heightened with Pluto, the planet of deep-rooted unconscious feelings that are the root of all self-transformations. There will be a crisis of sort having to do with your relationship, or for you, in determining what you want in a relationship. It may be that you need to sit down and talk with your partner, circumstances might require it, or force you to it. Saturn here is binding, and makes a sudden break less likely, so perhaps you can work on your issues. But it’ll feel heavy, really emotional. If you’re not attached then you could draw someone to you like a hot magnet. And on top of everything—Mercury goes Retrograde July 8th! So you’ll be forced to talk and deal with things with the people you’re closest to, as all other communication that’s on a mundane footing or with people you don’t know well will feel too forced or superfluous this month.
