Cancer, Jun 22 - Jul 22
Jaden Smith 7/8 - Selena Gomez 7/22
Relationships of all sorts continue to be in the spotlight. The parameters must change. For some of you this will be an overnight decision while for other Cancers the process will be slow. It seems that partners in business and love have been dictating the rules. Cancer has had enough of doing all the heavy lifting while someone else ignores you, cheats on you, or generally has ceased being a good fit for Cancer. The full moon eclipse January 10 brings about events that tip you in the direction of doing what is good for you and you alone. Your patience will be over and Cancers will wash away what you can no longer abide by in terms of other people’s behavior. There is a strong element of uncertainty. Embrace that uncertainty and work through it. The Universe always provides when we listen to the advice it offers. Some of this can spill over into your work. Mind your business and stay out of office politics. Do what is right for your heath and lifestyle. If you are sick it is because you are unhappy. Decide who you want to be now and in the future. Bosses and parents should have no say in this process. It might be good to take a class to learn a healing technique. As you heal others you will heal yourself. Self improvement projects propel you into the future beginning with the new Moon January 24. Best days 9,18,27,28
This month and next brings a strong focus to your seventh house of partnerships. There are so many ways this can play out depending on your current life status. If you are single you will not attract a chill relationship under this stress. However, you do have a new Moon eclipse in your seventh house December 25/26 and new partners of some sort are headed your way. On the other hand don’t get all self indulgent and whiny thinking you will be single always because you will not always be single. Attached Cancers will need to be supportive of partners who have their own issues at hand. Some relationships are coming to an end. The writing is on the wall. The full Moon December 11/12 adds to the significance of your human interactions. Secrets will be exposed around the full Moon. Whatever your circumstances, Cancer, you will be striking out new in the months ahead and maybe the next few years. Somewhere in life you will be sick and tired of being sick and tired and ready to move onto other pastures. New ways to express who you are, are coming to the door. Romance can be all part of the new you. You are a water sign; roll with the tide. Best days 3,4,13,22,31
Mercury is retrograde in your fifth house. This means you must think before your speak. It may be hard to get your point across because you are not quite sure how to express what it is you want to convey. The correct words can be concise but others may still not understand you, Cancer. Some of you will have to sit out while others run and play. Consider your misfortune is just the stars and life taking care of you. Maybe you don’t need to be climbing that rock wall or swimming in icy water. Mercury retrograde is in his full glory at the full Moon November 12. Problems can happen with friends and children. Try to remain calm when you really need to give someone a piece of your mind. Home and family matters continue to require Cancers’ attention until November 19. Mars moves through the fifth house November 19 to January 3. After the doldrums of Mercury retrograde in the same house; Cancer is ready and able to have fun, play, and tell the world what you really think. These days can be a passionate time but use caution before you place any bet. November 19 to 22 is sure to be a busy time. Try to avoid pinching anyone. The new Moon November 26 occurs in your sixth house. Consider your habits and start some new ones that are healthy. Trips to spas and other health oriented places are good for Cancer through mid December. Best days 6,7,16,24
September ends and October opens with power struggles and jealousy. Unfortunately, this is a theme of the month for Cancer. You are sure to be pulled by the needs of the family and you will have to juggle them with issues around your business and love partners. October 5 brings challenges with loved ones once again. Home is a busy place this month and next. You will have to deal with repairs and how to pay for those repairs. The full Moon brings career back to focus. You will receive recognition for the job you do. Job offer come at mid month. Ask a lot of questions as to what your responsibilities will be before you accept any offer. Mercury turns retrograde October 31 so any changes or big decisions must be made and put into action before October 20 or after December 7. If you do accept and start anything new during those times, it will not be a permanent gig. Lay low October 13. You are sure to be unnecessarily worried or stressed at that time.

The first half of September is productive for Cancer. Your daily routine is busy and you have the ability to get tasks done efficiently. You can expect your daily schedule to remain busy until October 4. Make changes to your calendar and the way you do your work September 5. Beginning September 14, though, life has more obstacles that Cancer must tackle. You will have to contend with family members and their issues. At the same time career and bosses will need your attention. Don’t freak out when your abilities are called into question. Those of you born during the last week of June are most susceptible to be called out for something that is beyond your control. Tend to your health especially your eyes. The full Moon, Saturday, September 13 is a good time for a new adventure. A weekend getaway to a spa or retreat fits the bill. One week later, September 20, news can be disconcerting and conversations turn into arguments especially with siblings and neighbors. At the same time, use caution around water. Time spent at home with family comes into play beginning September 28. Best days 3,12,14
Never you mind when someone questions your authority. When you think you are not good enough or do not know how to do your job just work harder and smarter. August is the time when Cancer must consider what makes you comfortable. Enemies and partners alike will try to have their way without considering you, Cancer. Adjust your priorities to suit you. Pick and choose carefully where and how you will compromise. Making money and spending money is happening full throttle. If you feel like you are spending more than you are making, know that the extra expenses will subside August 18. At that time you begin to feel like it takes less effort to get what you need. The daily routine will become very busy. August 7 is an emotional time for children and other loved ones. Get out of their way and let them vent.

It’s time to find out your neighbor’s name. Best days 7,16,17,26
July is an extra powerful time for Cancer due to the eclipses July 2 and 16. Take action especially where your career is concerned. The new and full Moon are very auspicious. Be careful, though, since Mercury is retrograde. Give serious thought to redesigning your life direction. Since the full Moon July 16 is in your opposite sign Capricorn, you will have to balance you with others who are less concerned with your needs and more concerned with their own agenda. This could come as a David against Goliath scenario. Other peoples' agenda probably is not in your best interest especially if you are involved in a legal matter with a big bad wolf. Relationships with friends come to a conclusion. In some cases that is because you realize that those friends are indeed enemies. Mercury backs into Cancer July 19. This brings about some of the needed endings through July 30. Slow down after July 19 and reassess what you have put into action thus far. Once you recover from the events that catch you by surprise, use those experiences to inspire you to move forward as opposed to your usual sideways. Try to make money as opposed to spending it through mid August. Do not fret if money is running out as that is not a permanent situation. Best days 1,2,11,20,21,29
If you don’t like being called moody then keep your self in check all month long. You have probably noticed that your plans and decisions have been more motivated by your emotions since last month. You have a lot of energy now to move sideways. Say nothing when you feel a biting comment coming into your mind. When you are disappointed adjust your tact and reel in your behavior. The new Moon June 3 compels Cancer to refuel intellectually and physically. Balance your need to relax with all those physical projects you want to accomplish. Sort through all the feelings you have. When you feel yourself engaging in self indulgent thoughts, perform an act of service. Roll with the high waves June 10 and commit to learning how to better take care of yourself June 17. Pay attention to your work June 25 and be prepared to defend you decisions and actions. Fight for a good cause this month, but the results you desire will come in August. Best days 4,22,23
May brings social and networking events that offer opportunities to make new friends. Step out of your comfort zone because that unknown is where love and belonging reside. It is a long process but you are letting go of old alliances and memberships that do not serve Cancer any longer. This is very evident at the full Moon May 18. Those who have children in their lives will be busy with their needs and in more than one case you will have to dish out tough love couched in tenderness. Mars moves through Cancer May 15 to July 1. During these days, Cancer has the energy and bravado to go for what you want whether that is finishing a five k race or rebalancing a relationship. Explore and come to terms with who you are in the days until July 1. This is important because there is a new Moon eclipse July 2 that is a kick start to a new way of life. Career and family are a challenge right around May 22/23. Best days 8,9,17,27
Cancer is at turning point this month. Some of you will be starting a totally new direction in life or career path.There will be recognition and you will see just where you are out of balance in life. Somedays it may be hard to keep it all up, but you must. Commit only to that which helps you start over in life. Move forward and do not go back. Consider the proper vision for yourself starting with the new Moon April 5. Get it all started and be ready to hibernate at home when the full Moon arrives April 19. Forces behind the scenes help Cancer so don’t get anxious. It may be hard to sleep at times. If you are prone to blood pressure issues keep your home blood pressure machine on hand. Mid month brings great opportunities but Cancer must be willing to bend a bit. When things don’t go your way, know that you will get what you want but it will be later and better. Don’t fret over the delays. Best days 11,20,29
Mercury is retrograde in Cancers’ ninth house of travel and education. This is not a great time to travel or begin any sort of educational classes. Instead, do a bit of daydreaming and planning for the big picture of life. It is okay to look at those travel websites and brochures but don’t book until after the 25th. In fact, if possible book after April 16. Thats a long time so if you must travel expect the unexpected and take your good nature with you because it will be tested by delays and snafus of all sorts. If you have to travel this month, it is not a very good time to do so with friends. They may be a source of irritation on the road or at your dinner table. Cancer will have to take the lead in a group situation, but do so with a velvet hammer so that your friends and associates do not revolt. Cancer is just the person to manage the cake sale or a takeover of the home owners association because you have a special organizational touch. While your ability to shine is wonderful, you don’t want to be off putting. The full Moon March 20 brings home and family matters front and center. Stay humble or have your dirty laundry aired. Best days 6,15,23,24
Since the beginning of January Cancer has been promoting yourself and your career. Many have taken the fast track to success and many of you have stepped on toes along the way. The first several days of this month bring power struggles with partners and authority figures. It can be intense especially for those of you born July 7 -14. February 13 brings surprises and explosive behavior as you strive for independence. Patience may not be one of your virtues February 13 and the responsibility you have to others can be a drag at mid month. Once Mars moves into Taurus February 13, Cancers' efforts will become more productive most likely because you will use your village to get what you want. Just be sure you are a benevolent leader and not a tyrant in the days until March 31. The new Moon February 4 does increase your awareness regarding other peoples’ needs so you should be able to corral others into helping you get your goals accomplished. Consider new financial plans and get them started before March 5. The full Moon February 19 is a very busy time but Cancer should be able to handle all the details with ease. Allow your personal issues to evolve into thin air. You don’t need that junk anymore.
Relationships of all sorts are having a face off with Cancer now and over the next several years. Power struggles continue for some of you while other Cancers are starting over in life. It is time to start over no matter what age you are at this time. The new Moon eclipse January 5 combined with Mars moving through your tenth house set the stage for you to start a new business. People who have the experience you need will want to partner with Cancer in the months to come. At the same time bosses and other people who want to control Cancer step up to challenge you through mid February. Those same people are likely to have a fit over some minor infraction. Move on with your plans, just do not push too hard as your push will receive even more pushback. Tension is abundant and you are pressed to use diplomacy January 14. The full Moon eclipse January 20/21 compels Cancer to deal with what’s yours and your partner’s responsibilities and resources over the next several months.
