Do you realize how unhappy you’ve become? I’m not saying this to give you a hard time. The answer is – you just need to rest, baby. By June 21, you’re center stage, all eyes upon you, but before then, you need to stay in the darkened room of your twelfth house, as the sun makes its way slowly through the most healing part of your chart, and you absorb it unconsciously. The relief is enormous. I’ve been there. When you don’t have to pretend or perform or do anything, it is relaxing. Without even thinking. Good not to think at all now actually. The changes, the transformations, the tearing apart of old to create new – it’s all happening now on its own. You’ve done the work, and you’re exhausted. Brava.
And it’s all good. It’s fantastic, really. Thanks to you and lucky Jupiter blessing you and your efforts and courage.
So for now, until June really gets going, take a moment and catch your breath. For in your twelfth house of retreat, traditionally ruled by sensitive Pisces, you have:
A fun new Gemini Moon on Thursday, May 25 (the Moon is your natural ruler)
Brilliant-thinking Mercury after Tuesday, June 6
This new sparkling Moon (and the Moon is your natural ruler) is a great augur for a new and secret path going into June!
And your twelfth psychic house rules:
Rest and retreat
Allowing your unconscious to breathe and replenish
Sleep and dreams
Your private life
Ideas and inspirations
The past, including past sorrows
Karma and past lives
Your innermost inner
Places of retreat
Places of confinement, including beds, hospitals, prisons, your house…
Your Past and its various complexes
Buried Sorrows: the way you sabotoge yourself
All inhibiting factors and physical inhibitions
The Sun moves into YOUR sign of Cancer, however, on Wednesday, June 21, and then you’re center-stage again, socializing, so this is just a brief time. A respite. A time to heal and to get in touch with your inner. You’re raring to go in the home, too; possibly some re-designing and renovating to the finish line with Jupiter now direct in your fourth sector after June 9.
On Friday, June 9, the full Moon takes place in Sagittarius, directly hitting your sixth house. A work issue reaches resolution. For some, a health crisis may occur.
A week later, Friday, June 16, Neptune goes direct in your ninth house – until the day before Thanksgiving, Wednesday, November 22. And the rose-tinted glasses come off. You see clearly. Which is a GREAT thing. You see!
You will be ready to expand – unusual for homebody Cancer – and get out into the world, learn anew, look anew, take a class, sign up for a new belief system, visit – even move to – another place.
It’s been a rough ride in this area as you have been mainly going at it on your own. This has not exactly given you peace of mind either (although you’ve dealt with it as gracefully as you’ve ever dealt with anything.)
Life is a hard teacher; she gives the test first, the lesson after. This line was written by the great Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard, born May 5, 1813, who had his emotional Moon in Cancer.
Even though you are brilliantly quick in grasping life and understanding, sometimes the universe just sets out to stretch you MORE. It does this by giving you a test of patience.
Finally — relationships. Ah, relationships!
A conflict of wills is likely right around the time you are reading this horoscope, and transformation is at hand.
Single Crabs looking for love, after your time of rest, get out there and meet someone. Don’t be a hermit in the house, in other words, as June winds down. You will have no shortage of admirers. You are looking awesome.
Attached Crabs, remember to reassure your partner when you need time alone, and all will, ultimately, be lovey-dovey. Remember “ultimately”.
It is also a time when repressed feelings come loose, and much healing takes place.
It seems you have been working on a work project for quite a while now and this is the final stage of the chrysallis – before it is birthed into the world. Bravo, dear Cancer! You are about to see your hard work bear fruit.
It is a good time to bring things of the past to completion. To forgive and move on.
If you feel like you’re waiting for something to happen, you are. Before the Sun moves into your sign it is like the darkest before the dawn. Once the Sun moves into Cancer on June 21, it is all sunlight again.
You have become brilliant at streamlining and prioritizing in your life. Now this wisdom moves into the arena of friendships and you may find you have a new set of friends from which to pick and choose.
Love-wise, you are learning a lot, and you have the chance to set up something for life, if you so wish it.
Sexy Mars moves into your sign Sunday, June 4, and makes you a sexy stunner. You as well as your job are meant to be sexy. In other words, if you need to make a career change, this is the time. You are being encouraged, sweet Crab, to go forward. Not sideways, as Crabs usually do.
You are getting your mind razor sharp to go forward on a new path – and also to step back from others’ dramas. This is your time; don’t waste it on the small stuff. (And it’s all small stuff.) The real achievement of June will be mastering your psychology for best success. With Mercury retrograde in your twelfth house it is time to not repeat mistakes of the past, and to make healthy and sound decisions. It’s pretty serious!
Speaking of healthy decisions…Only a tiny warning for this June…a bit of an eruption possible around the full Sagittarius Moon on Friday, June 9. Because this truth-telling Moon shines alongside Saturn (more wisdom, always brought about by a lesson), and it is the same day lucky Jupiter also goes direct in your fourth house, a priceless truth will be blurted out in your house.
Go with it. It will save you years in your life.
I see it in terms of your health and work: how they effect each other. Something about your body and health that needs to come out. It might seem a bit scary at the time – these things often are – but your routine on this earth is your best friend. Something you’ve hidden below the surface coming out into the open. Having a good, karmic effect. To be healed.
Nothing sinister as Sagittarius Moon is a kind moon. But educational.
You’ve been a little on the quiet and reflective side lately, but not to worry: this is often such a time for you. Before the time of Cancer.
You will be asked to come out of your crab shell by an admirer, very, very soon! To take a bit of a risk, or a leap of faith. It is hard being you, sometimes, and for you to step outward when all you want to be is inward takes a lot of courage and guts. We know you have the guts, so let’s see the courage now…
Neptune goes retrograde in your ninth house on Friday, June 16. Neptune will be retrograde from June 16 to November 22.
Neptune is the planet of poetry and drugs. Of all things beautiful and seductive, that can cause you to fall down the rabbit hole. Your unconscious, murky vision; that which attracts you and drives you mad.
Cancer and Scorpio are water signs. Pisces — which Neptune rules — is a below water sign.
Thus, when Pisces’ Neptune goes retrograde, it is like turning back a tsunami. In your ninth house of expansion!
It is the time to dive in underneath — it’s safe to go out into the water — to ponder and see beyond the smoke and mirrors. To see how you have been seduced, and why. When it comes to a far away place. The truth comes out. The truth also sets you free.
When you see the Neptune-ruled mirages you have set up for your life, (how you view all the parts of your life, in image-form) you have more choice. The retrograde of Neptune will also bring the need for practical results. For physical, concrete action in the house in which it is. Neptune, and its retrograde, is in your ninth house.
Your ninth house rules:
Other countries, states, and all far away
Exploration, including education
Contacts and lands and cultures far away
Your beliefs and philosophy
College, School, and Classes
Law and lawyers
Gurus (including false gurus)
It is a time for reflection in lots of different areas, to see how your goals and priorities are matching up. You have a lot going on this horoscope period!
And still your troubled heart and have faith in the future. You have been at the grindstone all year, and now it is time to explore, travel and play. Celebrate your June!
Time to see where your path will take you?
