Cancer Horoscope (June 21 - July 22)
Your ruling planet is The Moon.
This is an amazing month for you, Cancer, as you wrestle with issues of self-acceptance, and of intimate connection to others. As you work these through you shine out in an entirely fresh way and come to important epiphanies regarding your self-concept and where you are headed. You have been getting a good sense of your calling that is about to shift into high gear. At the time of the November 24th Full Moon, and in the weeks following, you are called in an extraordinary way to your highest ideals for yourself. It's all about living in present tenses; and about realizing that this is exactly what you signed up for, long ago and far away.
As the month begins, you are likely running into some difficulties and awareness of the drawbacks in what you have been trying to accomplish in this recent time period, over the last three weeks. Your progress has likely been astounding, but you might have to accept some limitations on what can concretely be accomplished. You are perhaps also slogging through the mud of prior patterns of the way that you intimately connect to others. Your personal evolution gets a boost with the advent of the New Moon taking place on Friday, November 9th in your self-expression sector. You are seeking to reinvent yourself over the course of this next monthly cycle, and this is another time of rapid growth, especially in the idea department, with mystical overtones. You are more in command of your process of transformation now than ever, although with the pressure of events and with the rapid flashes of insight that shake up your existing belief system, you might find the pace a bit manic and even dizzying. It's all relative; the ride is there for you to enjoy and may perhaps turn out to be exhilarating. It helps not to take anything that happens to you all that heavily, although of course you remain quite serious as you play the game for keeps. Simply take everything that happens as it comes, and try not to claim ownership of your own destiny beyond what you can actually control. The rest is a needless waste of energy that can better be spent living in the present moment. With the Marsretrograde in your sign in the following week, from the 15th onward, you might find yourself to be more internal than usual, content to think things over rather than directly act on them. Two days later comes the First Quarter Moon of the 17th, when the numinous side of life is once again quite readily available to you, even more strongly perhaps, and likely through the agency of others. The balance of the mystical and the practical is very key right now. The opening for you is to hold both conflicting viewpoints firmly in your mind at the same time, quite a trick perhaps but one that you may be finally ready for. With the Full Moon of the Thanksgiving weekend, on the 24th, it might get easier. If you are playing your cards right you are learning from all these experiences, and taking your time with the precise evaluation of where you are going, and what it is you need to be doing there when you finally arrive.
