Cancer Horoscope (June 21 - July 22)
Your ruling planet is The Moon.
You are slowly climbing the ladder of your destiny, Cancer. The starkness and austerity of the season is bringing you unexpected riches in terms of growth in both inner and outer realms, and the inner is emphasized. You have been developing a sense of balance between significant life partners and yourself, whereby you acknowledge the power of others to help you to transform, but equally recognize that it is your own isolated road that you must travel in your search for wholeness. In this current cycle you are a powerful warrior for your cause as you embrace a nebulous and yet fulfilling point of view, intent on changing the way that relationship in your life works both against you and for you.
As the month begins, you are somewhat conflicted, startled by the clarity of your observations leading you into an uncertain but exciting future, and yet pulling back from fully acting on the novel impulses that thus arise. Something deep inside you is leading you on to further transformation and it is a compassionate sense of oneness with your process that is your best and surest guide forward. When you take a good hard look it's really not even a question. It simply becomes the classic no-brainer to choose to abandon old and habitual patterns that only hold you back from your fullest life expression. But that doesn't make it easy. With the New Moon of Saturday, February 13th, comes greater energy for making necessary changes in your life. You are being gently nudged in the direction that soul purpose dictates and it involves taking on a new concept of the role that significant partners play in your life and also embracing newly reworked definitions of security. Perhaps you are coming to the realization that your true security lies in knowing yourself at the deepest possible level, and in encouraging those who make it possible for you to go there at the expense of other commitments. It is after all a question of what really matters to you in the long run, as you are finally beginning to recognize. It is possible that it will be difficult to face what comes up for you at this time, but nevertheless it might be important for you to do so. A sage once said to "follow your fears" and this New Moon energy might remind you that if fear is the only thing holding you back why then maybe you need to go for it anyway. The First Quarter Moon that comes along a week later, taking place on Sunday, February 21st, is also an important time for you, and one again of reassessment. You are attempting to discern what is viable and what is not as you navigate your future from the standpoint of higher mind. By month's end, new perspectives will emerge that confirm even more strongly that you are on what is essentially the right path. If you can muster the courage, take the road that is offered you over this monthly cycle; and if you cannot, take it anyway, since sooner or later you will come to the same crossroads and face the reality of what you need to leave behind as no longer useful to your highest purpose.
