Cancer Horoscope for June 2018

Posted on in Cancer |
By for ASTROGRAPH Horoscopes

This is a month of getting closer in touch with your own insides, Cancer. You are transforming in the areas of partnership interaction, plus work requirements, and it all has much to do with what arises for you out of the depths of your unconscious process. You seem to be operating in slow motion, especially during the first two weeks, very focused on issues of commitment, in career and for your primary relationships. One way to envision this situation is to imagine that you are taking your time in order to get to know the emotional territory very thoroughly; this is before allowing developments to proceed that you sense more than directly see. Wilder impulses at work within you seek new horizons in goals, as well as in group dynamics. As you attempt to balance recklessness with caution, it is your growing awareness of inner wounding stemming from the past that makes for one important key to a more robust future.

The following was written by this month's guest columnist Adam Elenbaas of The Nightlight Astrology School

We’re on the cusp of the Cancerian season this month, with the start of the Cancer time period taking place each year on the Summer Solstice. Meanwhile, everyone is still feeling the effects of the entrance of Uranus into Taurus last month, which for you signifies variability and also tons of ideas around your friendships and goals for the future. This month features Mars turning retrograde in the sign of Aquarius, corresponding to intimacy and personal evolution, and in square to Uranus. Let’s look at the big transits of the month, in-depth.

Between June 5th and 6th, Venus in Cancer in your first house of self, health, and new beginnings will be moving through an opposition to Pluto in Capricorn in your seventh house of marriage and relationships. There is an opportunity here for transformation, deeper intimacy, purging, cleansing, and healing in your relationships. You might also be exploring your most profound values and desires, asking the deeper questions about what will bring you lasting happiness versus a temporary or momentary level of satisfaction.

At nearly the same time, between June 6th and 7th, the Sun and Mercury will be conjunct in Gemini in your twelfth house of self-undoing, imprisonment, and ego-dissolution, while moving into a square with Neptune in Pisces in your ninth house of religion, spirituality, higher education, and long journeys. You might be going through a very important moment of doubt, inner questioning, or confusion about your beliefs, or it may be somewhat challenging to know the truth or to discern the forest from the trees. Stick with the process, find your faith, and remember Gandalf’s famous words, “All who wander are not lost!”

On June 13th, the New Moon in Gemini will also land in your twelfth house. At the same time, Mars will conjoin the South Node of the Moon in the eighth house of passive income, other people’s money, and death and rebirth. The emphasis is once more upon a process of questioning and/or confusion, inner doubt and mental turmoil, facing fears or uncertainties, and finding faith even though you may feel tired, confused, alone, or temporarily stuck. Remember that you are not the only driver of this bus, and that your best asset is your faith in the universe together with your emotional intelligence. Feel your way, slowly, through the challenges of these transits by relying upon your instincts, but don’t be reactive, either. This can be a very meditative, or even spiritual, remainder of the month for you. For any of us to grow in life, we must, from time to time, move through some twelfth house periods!

Between June 14th and 15th, Venus in Leo in your second house of finances, resources, and money, will square Uranus in Taurus in your eleventh house of friends, allies, and wishes. You may be considering a new way of making money, or you may find that you are facing a conflict of values among your friends or within the social circles or groups you belong to. On the other hand, you may be presented with interesting or exciting new forms of collaboration right now. Be careful about making big and impulsive decisions or acting from a place of impulsivity or defiance. While this transit is all about revolution and breaking from the norms, it may also indicate a lack of tact or thoughtfulness that should be guarded against by deeper mindfulness.

On June 15th, Mercury in Cancer in your first house of self, health, and new beginnings will also oppose Saturn in Capricorn in your seventh house of marriage and relationships, emphasizing a somewhat serious, constrained, focused, or disciplined quality of mind and speech, and communication within your relationships. You may be feeling sensitive or vulnerable right now while others might be acting hard, cold, severe, or unyielding. On the other hand, be careful of self-pity and emotional immaturity. Sometimes we all need a wiser, more experienced voice or set of teachings or expectations to guide us forward on the path of life.

On June 21st the Summer Solstice takes place at the very beginning of your sign, and you may feel reborn, or otherwise quite excited by future prospects. Opportunity lands upon you suddenly in this latter part of the month. You might also feel daunted by the prospect of unknown changes that will ultimately affect your career, or in general be concerned with feelings of not good enough, or who am I to deserve all this. Pay close attention to your fears and you will get to know yourself better in the dark places deep within you. On this same day, Venus in Leo in your second house of values, resources, and finances, moves into an opposition with Mars in Aquarius in your eighth house of passive income, a partner’s money, or death and rebirth (the nodal axis of the Moon will be included in this opposition, too!). You might be experiencing a creative renaissance regarding your finances right now, or you may find that you are struggling or at odds in your relationships regarding bills, debt, expenditures, or savings. It’s a good time to explore your values, along with what you most sincerely hold inside, with a nice opportunity for synthesis. You may also notice that sexual desires or material cravings are high right now so be careful not to overdo it!

June 23rd Mercury in Cancer is opposing Pluto in Capricorn from your first to your seventh house, once again emphasizing the importance of relationships and transformative conversations or exchanges this month. For relationships to work, in the long run, both people need to be open to being transformed by the other. When relationships don’t work it’s usually because one person prefers to remain invulnerable at the cost of the other.

Then on June 25th, Venus in Leo in your second house of values, resources, and money will square Jupiter in Scorpio in your fifth house of children, creativity, and joy. Be careful of big expenses or purchases around this time, but otherwise enjoy the abundance, beauty, creativity and general expansiveness of the moment. You may also notice that your children are thriving or that there is a general aura of child-like joy and creativity surrounding you.

Finally, on June 27th, the Full Moon will conjoin Saturn in your 7th house of marriage and relationships while Mars turns retrograde just one day prior, in your eighth house of death and rebirth, and “other people’s money.” This is a big transit, highlighting the need for greater depth, seriousness, and commitment in your relationships, or possibly signaling the need to make significant changes yourself or possibly signals significant changes happening in the life of a partner. The influence of Saturn can be a great indicator of wisdom, growth, and maturity coming into your life, but it may also represent some elements of rigidity or severity. At the same time, the Mars retrograde taking place in your eighth house all summer emphasizes an intense and in-depth level of personal, financial, or relational transformation taking place for you (or perhaps some combination of all three!). Remember, that you are gifted with the unique ability to nurture yourself and others through periods of change, so trust your heart and keep it open no matter what!

With the massive changes that are happening now, I highly recommend that folks get a transit report tailored specifically to their chart for the most accurate description of what's in store for you in the months ahead.

If your Sun is prominent in your chart, you will exhibit great power to do and to be.
