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

Changing perspectives present to you a window on infinity, Cancer. You are both exhilarated and questioning almost everything. You are in some ways like that medieval figure peering out from under the curtain at cosmic wheels in flux, not sure whether to duck back inside the safety of a more limited viewpoint. You ongoing sense of future shock might also at times turn into future stuck. This all has its point, and it is somehow for the purpose of reaffirming your sense of yourself just when you need it most. The back and forth lets you try on for size a larger conception. As you continue to advance to your next evolutionary stage it will be more of an intentional move, one that is consistent with the fullest possible measure of soul purpose.

As the month begins, you are experimenting with new ways of seeing the world around you. This is a complex period of time when ideas are shifting that you have long held regarding the manner in which the universe seems to hold together. There is some truth in the notion that as you see and believe, so you will find things to be, and so there might even be a sense in which you are currently reconstituting your universe nearer to your heart’s desire. This cycle is for you more about internal than external activity, especially with Neptune prominent in your sector of higher mind, and with Mercury in retrograde at the top of your Solar Chart during the latter half of this month. This period is perfect for seeking within yourself for answers, rather than following along with anyone else’s ideas or values. You can definitely take advantage of this time– perhaps by stepping up a schedule of meditation or by journaling your innermost thoughts and seeing where these thoughts might lead you, as you sail into the mystical. There could be minor conflicts that come up during this first week of March regarding how to mediate between the practical here and now versus the cosmically unreal; for this is the dichotomy that you are facing as you struggle to come to terms with what is actually going on both on the outside of your personal control and as well within the confines of your own mind and heart. The deep unconscious process represented by the misty mild and numinous energy of Neptune is to some extent invading your conception, and you might find in the process of dealing with this otherworldly viewpoint that your unconscious has more to reveal than you might have guessed concerning the underpinnings of your everyday motivation. The Full Moon of Thursday, March 8th, represents a time when many of these issues will start to come together in a new and meaningful way, engendering wholeness of conception. You might find that communicative outreach is increasingly important to you as this first half of the month unfolds; perhaps the point of view of creative partners will serve as a sounding board for you and help your own beliefs to coalesce. Friends and family members are likely to come into the picture now as well and could prove extremely helpful as you reassess everything from the standpoint of your evolving worldview. The Last Quarter Moon taking place on Wednesday, March 14th, is an exciting time as well, when many ideas could shift and when you are busily reexamining everything that has come before this point in time. You are filled with optimism for the future now, and gathering up the wisdom engendered by the past in order to prepare for it. Partnership is an important component. The Aries New Moon that follows a few days after the Spring Equinox, taking place on Thursday, March 22nd, is a powerful one for you, and compels activity, although with Mercury still retrograde until next month any sharp turns or radical deviations from a planned course of action are not recommended. There will be surprising realizations and events to deal with and these likely center around career activities, although these events are actually part of a wider reflection on the entire trend of your life process during this important monthly cycle.
