Cancer Horoscope (June 21 - July 22)
Your ruling planet is The Moon.
This month is great one for taking stock of your situation, Cancer. You are coming out of a difficult period with more questions than answers, perhaps, and now require the necessary downtime to reassesses your life purpose. New ways of being in the world and new ways of seeing accompany an important new take on intimacy with others around you. A universal feeling of connection with the world at large contrasts with the trouble that you may run into in enforcing your boundaries for the sake of sanity. Above all remember to breathe.
As the month begins, you are riding the wave of the New Moon in your sign from the end of last month. It's a fresh start for you in many ways, but you're likely also to be hyper-aware of disquieting thoughts that are still very much with you as you enter your new phase. These might include considerations of the way that you do intimacy along with issues of taking up your own authority independent of the desires and feelings of others. Though the immediacy of these concerns is fading, there is still plenty of food for thought as you go through the current monthly cycle. The First Quarter Moon of Monday, July 3rd, emphasizes values and security needs which are also a primary focus at this time. The Mercury retrograde period beginning on the 4th is a good time to contemplate who you are, really, and exactly where it is that you are heading this time around, a persistent theme for you right now. Even though you may be tempted into impetuous activity in response to recent shifts in awareness of your situation, it is better to simply witness the changes flowing in and around you during this self-reflective period. The Full Moon of Monday, July 10th, brings partnership into your practice. Significant others are a valuable mainstay right now for you and give you the opportunity to share your thought process. The powerful Last Quarter Moon of Monday, July 17th, is a time when awareness deepens of how far you come and what does or doesn't work, while the New Moon a week later is a chance for a new beginning on getting clear. You are transforming in the development of your sense of your own purpose in being here on the planet, which necessarily includes some concept of service to others, partly in response to your cumulative process over the past few weeks, and partly through feeling out for yourself what no longer works for you in your life.
