You have a total solar eclipse coming up in your sign so let yourself off the hook if you’re feeling a little agitated. You seem to be dreaming of somewhere far-away. Loved ones yell under the full moon June 28 and hidden plans are revealed. A huge release comes from this, and by July 12 you’re ready for a new direction. The work you have to do around the house is endless.
Because you’re ruled by the moon, you’re affected more by full moons and new moons, and especially by eclipses, than any other sign. You feel it more deeply than anyone, and it’s important that you have a partner or friends at hand with whom you can unreservedly talk. You need to let it out, and not to withdraw and keep it all festering inside. (Bad for you!)
On Tuesday, July 2, there is a total solar eclipse at 10 degrees and 38 minutes of Cancer. The eclipse point itself is sextile Uranus and opposing Saturn so expect the unexpected – and quite dramatically so.
A body such as the U.S.A. cannot help but be, as Cancer Sun with Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter also in Cancer, powerfully affected by this eclipse. It will be felt most keenly on Independence Day.
For you, look at your first house, ruling your physical body, self-image, and your ego self in general. This will have been affected already, but July 2 will be the rising wave, the culmination, the earthquake. In the most visible area of yourself, there will be an ending and a beginning, strongly felt, with no going back.
For everyone, surgical operations are a big NO-NO during the eclipse, and particularly on areas ruled by Cancer: stomach, breasts, and ovaries. This includes cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, breast alteration, etc. This practice was first attributed to Hippocrates, the grandfather of modern medicine (physicians still have to take the Hippocratic Oath.)
The only other time to watch out for is two weeks later, on Tuesday, July 16, with the partial lunar eclipse full Moon in Capricorn. At this time, it is advisable not to have surgery, particularly on areas ruled by Capricorn: bones and teeth. Otherwise, there can be those “complications.”
Now’s an excellent time to start letting go of the past. Cancer has a hard time letting go of anything – or anyone. Change – and life is all about change – is difficult. God knows you’ve endured enough in your life.
But evolutionary forces are spinning now, and it is truly impossible for you to resist. Try as you might.
You transform your inner self as well this July: the deepest change. A sea change! Even with your beautiful appearance. I predict a new face for the U.S.A. then, too. You just need to sort out issues with others. Domestic issues that grow more controversial with every passing day.
Your relationships are going to shift to an entirely new level. Whether you decide to sign on the dotted line or walk away for good, your decision will take you all the way into the new year. Things may not happen now, but the seeds will have been planted for the new year. In whatever relationship, you find that you have reached the end of a particular chapter, and it is time to move to the next chapter.
Some of you will decide to dissolve the partnership completely.
The drawback is a woman left alone – you may, in your journey, have to separate from a female you care about. Economics are a part of this, as well as business.
You’re forgiven for feeling and acting selfishly…Just look at all that your first house of self has in it!
All in Cancer:
Sharp-thinking Mercury (going into retrograde July 7 to July 31)
That solar eclipse new Moon Tuesday, July 2
Venus and Mars in your sign has you looking RAVISHING so expect admiring glances… and more. This leads to a new direction in your very self!
And what all does your first house rule?
Your first house, traditionally ruled by confident Aries, rules:
You in the world
How you look
How you appear
Optimism and hope
One thing you don’t have to worry about is being stuck in a rut or staying in some comfortable familiar situation for the sake of security (which crabs generally like and need) because change is everywhere in your chart. This eclipse opposes Pluto retrograde in your seventh relationship house, so there will be some disruption with partners. Eliminate what needs to go in your agreements to resolve this.
There is travel outside your home and choices in your domestic and work-life. It’s a good time to talk it over with someone whose counsel you trust and value.
But don’t stop and analyze too much; you will need to strike while the iron is hot.
Expect some unexpected messages. These will alter your perspective and help you move ahead.
With all this wind at your back pushing you forward, remember that you have good support in the form of helpful people around you. (That woman may not be very happy; as I said, the only drawback.)
Is anything going to stay the same? Not really. Fasten your seat belt, dear Cancer. You’ve dreamed of this for years. Have trust and faith you’re going in the right direction – for you are. Transformation is at hand, not only in yourself and your life, but also in your outer self – even in the way you look and conduct yourself.
What have you felt an itch to change or experiment with? Mid-July is the time to go for it, as the results will be very successful.
Embrace it, for you are ready for all its glory, and the universe is bringing it to you. Be brave and take the leap.
You’re naturally suspicious in a Chicken Little Cancer sort of way and your self-confidence and self-esteem has been knocked a bit. You may feel that people – that you trusted – have been letting you down all over the place.
Money-wise…well, the stars are still making you worry about your finances. I would try and get things straight before Mercury goes retrograde in your financial house at the end of July.
But now – that’s all changing. You are changing. You have more choice in your life and it shows. You have worked for this. You have acquired hard-won wisdom.
You have more than several angels around you. Consult with them. Ask them for help. That’s their job.
Key people are stepping into your life, more than willing to help you. You may have been expecting what is just not possible of certain existing partnerships and associations. It is time for new friends.
If you’ve learned anything this year, it is that things must change to get better. This is certainly one of those times.
You may have found yourself already looking up, or certainly thinking about, old flames and love partners.
Or rekindling passion with the one you’re with.
Some financial shifting also occurs around this time, motivating you and your partner to make some important decisions. Consider being more independent.
Then you dazzle the world.
