Cancer Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Cardinal Water. Your ruling planet is TheMoon.

You are reinventing yourself this monthly cycle, Cancer. Intimations of a new way of seeing your world suddenly break through. An optimistic assessment of trends meets head-on with the difficulties inherent in maintaining your base amidst the whirlwind of modern circumstance. Although there may be very little forging ahead, at least you're not stagnant. You are investing in your highest intention for your future, betting on yourself against all the odds. You win when your take Spirit firmly into account as a crucial part of the equation.

As the month begins, you are in the midst of an exciting and fertile period of time, when your perspective changes almost daily. Perhaps you are feeling like slowing down and taking the reflective internal stance represented by the symbolism of Mercury through your sector of creative self-expression. This has been a powerful Mercury retrograde period, especially for those Cancerians born near the middle of July, although everyone is feeling the pinch. You can use this energy to move ahead in your thinking, preparing for Mercury's eventual emergence from its retrograde shadow in December. Meantime it is best to watch and wait, as old patterns come up to be worked through and for their eventual healing. At the time of the Full Moon, which takes place on Sunday, November 5th, you are charged with paying close attention to the principle of "right relationship" as it manifests in your intimate connections with others, and in other kinds of partnership in your life as well. There is a radical change sweeping through you these days regarding the effect of partnership in your life, and including also your basic values and your soul perception of the world at large, or perhaps the belief systems inherited from your early years. This can be a confusing period of time, when nothing is as it seems and you struggle to keep your head above water. The secret may lie in finding your own unique way of looking at things, no matter what anyone else has to say, or has had their say in the far distant past. You're on your own now in more ways than one, and this simple fact can be scary but also exhilarating. The mod-month period of time, leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday week, brings all these feelings out into the open. There are likely to be surprises along the way. You are feeling stuck in your attitudes and emotions right now, but being jarred out of that, daring to allow change but holding on to the past as well, and perhaps in need of a little loosening up. With the New Moon of Monday, November 20th, the dam may begin to break open.
