This is still a time of massive transformation for you Cancer, just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water! This is mostly with regard to your relationships, which have for years now been something of a moving target for you, also in the way – or the literally new ways – that you show up in the world around you and contribute to society. The former could of course apply to a particular partnership in your life, and also to the very concept of relationship itself, and how you handle the paradoxical situation of being completely alone, and yet not alone, as a typical human being working things out. You have a great deal of intuitive inspiration for this effort, your self-assigned task to master. Or could we say assigned by the hand of a benevolent universe? In any case Nature and your angel guidance, or read that as God, or Goddess, or the Universe, is there for you, always, and this simple yet profound fact, once accepted, can do quite a bit to help to guide you through.

September is already here and you may find yourself rethinking your relationship to your community or where you live. This is a busy time of the year and your desire to make the best of your surroundings means going out and connecting with your environment. The recent Leo-Aquarius Full Moon in the last degree of their respective signs may have brought a major reassessment of what you value and by extension the kind of people and community you want to be part of. Friendships could be playing a major supportive role in your life and being surrounded by the people that you love could be high on your priority list.
You may be feeling particularly curious as the month begins and feeling ready to learn new things. The Sun and Mars are transiting in Virgo which highlights your communication sector during the first half of September. Your mind should feel sharp and ready to tackle any tasks although an opposition between Mars and Neptune from September 1st to the 3rd could throw you off for a spell. Your idealism is running high, and you may be called to clarify your ideas or your philosophical perspective on something that reveals itself to be more complicated than you first expected., or you might have to sort out contradictory information before you are able to make up your mind. Take all the time you need to clarify your thoughts on something important, especially if money is involved. Following this Mars transit, Mercury in Libra trines Saturn in Aquarius from the 3rd to the 5th, and this can support your process and may also highlight shared assets or a real estate scenario.
The New Moon in Virgo on September 6th brings fresh energy to your communication sector. You may be feeling more social than usual, and surprising events could occur. Interactions with people who can offer new perspectives or experiences can be particularly interesting to you right now, and your sense of belonging to groups or friendships could also be shifting. There is a lot of idealism in your philosophical attitude and in your educational perspective, and you might need to inject a dose of realism to balance that out.
Venus enters Scorpio towards the second weekend of September bringing her deep and sensual influence to your creative sector. Romance, children, and self-expression could be energized until the 7th of October and it may be easier to gravitate towards what you love and what brings you pleasure while Venus is here.
Mid-month, an opposition between the Sun in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces may once again bring some confusion. This is a short lived aspect that requires discrimination –
especially in your communications or with the information you consume. Your ideas about the world may be changing and you may be pulled towards a broader or more inclusive perspective. The Full Moon in Pisces on September 20th highlights this ongoing process that perhaps is also connected to your sense of belonging. Spirituality, philosophy, education, and culture may be important topics at this time as you try to reconcile what is happening in the world with your sense of faith. Your desire to keep an open mind means you are willing to hear what others have to say at this time.
The Sun enters Libra on the 22nd joining Mars and Mercury already here and signaling the first day of Fall in the Northern Hemisphere. The later part of September brings a shift towards your living arrangements and you may turn your attention onto your private life. Where you want to be in the world could also be in a state of flux as Mercury in Libra, currently transiting in your home sector, prepares to station retrograde at the end of September. Your desire to root down and your need for new experience could be colliding against each other and you may have to contend with not knowing where your heart is for now. You may need to organize your space and spend more time at home, with your children, or with a partner. However, Venus in Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus around the same time could bring exciting development if you are single or if you are an artist. This opposition may challenge you to step out of your comfort zone or try something new which could yield interesting results or prompt you to rethink some of your assumptions.
Mercury stations retrograde in Libra on the 26th, near the end of the month and this continues to bring attention to your living arrangement and more extensively your family. The Mercury Retrograde period of time is a potent one for you, lasting three weeks until Mercury stations again to direct motion, and another two weeks beyond that as the messenger planet regains its lost Zodiacal ground in late Libra. Your feelings of belonging could therefore continue to be in a state of flux in these weeks ahead, lasting the entire month of October. It helps when you can embrace the process and stay as open as physically possible to having your mind changed.
