August 3, 2015
The Moon is in Pisces until 7:24 PM EDT, when it enters
Aries. This morning Jupiter and Saturn form a square. This longer-term aspect
will occur again in March and May, 2016, but both Jupiter and Saturn will have,
by then, moved from Leo to Virgo and from Scorpio to Sagittarius, respectively.
Right now, we may be forced to do things by the book, to abide by the rules or
laws, and to adjust to a reality check. When we
think in big terms, or if we have the urge to expand, we confront obstacles
or we are forced to face reality. Some re-structuring of
our lives and of our business goals is now in order. There are no easy fixes
or shortcuts for us now - we have to put in the hours. It
is best to
breathe new life into old plans rather than to strike out with a new plan
altogether. Take steps to grow, but don't overextend
yourself at this time or you are bound to face frustrations.
There is an unusual emphasis on your solar second house this month, dear Cancer, with all personal planets moving through here at some point in August, as well as Jupiter here until the 11th. Retrograde Venus stays for a visit all month. This places a strong focus on the affairs ruled by the second house, which represents what you value, including money and valuables or personal possessions, as well as your resources and talents. Your own self-worth falls under the rule of this house. It can be about your earnings, comfort levels, and sense of security. Money matters can certainly assume more importance now, and some of you could have money owed returned to you now or you might find lost valuables or objects of sentimental value. There can be old problems surrounding ownership resurfacing for others. You could feel especially motivated to build a business or project, or you might focus on a desired object. Saturn turns direct this month, and focus can be on dealing with a romantic or creative matter. You might feel a little "harder" when it comes to putting certain elements of your past behind you. A relationship matter might become a little clearer, but it may not be until Venus is direct and approaching its regular speed before things are crystal clear. Jupiter makes its yearly sign change, and this launches a new year-long cycle for you that expands your contacts, communications, and interests. This can be a time for taking up new studies, hobbies, or interests, or finding new and improved channels for communicating or commuting that open up new worlds to you. This can be an important year for laying down groundwork for future projects, or building your skills. There can be a lot of paperwork and general "busyness" as you can be excited to learn new things and share your ideas and interests with others. The last week of August brings you a small taste of this energy, but it may not be until the Solar Eclipse in your communications sector in mid-September that really gets the ball moving.
The year ahead brings opportunities to build up your resources, use your
natural talents in creative ways, expand your interests, learn new things, and
put more effort into health and fitness routines, dear Cancer. Jupiter's travels
through your money and values sector until August is designed to allow you to
get comfortable. Particularly from April 10th to June 30th, this is a time for
building up your resources. There can be a nice feeling of abundance or improved
fortunes now. Some of you are making more money, and others are settling in and
finding ways to make life easier. You might acquire a new item/valuable that
you've always wanted. It's a strong time for asking for a raise and building up
stock. It's also an excellent period for drawing upon and honing your natural
talents. Although it feels like a lovely time to spend, and in fact it is, make
the most of this period by putting some money away for rainy days.
Home and family life continue to improve, although you may need to work to
make this happen by finding a better balance between the demands of the outside
world, particularly career, and the needs of your personal life. There are great
rewards for doing so. An eclipse in April will give you the cosmic push
necessary to turn your attention more strongly to any neglected areas in your
domestic life, and can bring some surprises and turnarounds in the process. Work
and partnership are connected this year and next, and some of you may, for
example, meet a partner through work/services, or work with a partner. Towards
the end of the summer, you'll begin to feel a stronger desire to connect,
mingle, learn, and communicate. Opportunities begin to open up that allow you to
do more of these things, to get around (transportation improves, possibly with a
new vehicle for some), and to take on new interests. It can be a very busy time,
mostly happily so, and this extends until September 2016.
The second half of the year can be loaded with daily activities, projects,
and activities. It's a good time for marketing, sending out resumes, going on
interviews, writing, studying, and learning. You'll only need to watch out for
saying too much too soon, and filling up your schedule to the point of overload.
In fact, Jupiter is encouraging you to take on more, and Saturn wants you to
simplify your daily life. While this conflict is more likely to play out in
2016, get a jumpstart on this now by striving for a better balance. Your desire
to expand your contacts and your mind is strong, but you also need to organize,
structure, and simplify your daily routines in order to stay healthy and
adjusted. More is not always better - keep this in mind.
You've been attracting intense relationships into your experience in recent
years, and this trend continues. At times, issues of control or power, as well
as fear and trust, are in full play when it comes to partnering. This trend can
be most problematic in February-March, when conflicts over values, money, and
career can be at play, and especially the end of June to mid-August. In fact,
some of you could be ending a significant relationship in the summer, or a
relationship could be tested then. From October forward, however, excellent
energy is with you for significant relationships. News or information give you a
new perspective, and communication can lead to bonding. Some could meet someone
special through work or studies/projects, and there may be growth in commitment
or devotion in an existing partnership. Your views toward love and commitment
can transform. From November forward, there can be concerns about education or
necessary skills in order to succeed in your work. Some of you could be faced
with a choice to travel or to take a new job, for example, or the desire to
escape and experience more from life conflicts with your daily responsibilities.
Personal appeal is especially strong from May 8-June 5, when coveted people and
things seem to come to you, and when your decisions about love and money might
even make some waves. You have a lot more courage this summer with Mars blazing
through your sign (June 24-August 8). This is a time for pursuing your desires,
not for waiting for things to come to you. Even so, from the last week of June
to mid-July, you could be especially brave and acting out of character. You
could make very impulsive decisions during this period - watch for over the top
behavior, particularly in your career or with people in authority.
Jupiter continues to
move through your sign until mid-year, and this is helpful, freeing energy. This
may not be a time that is heavily oriented towards relationships, but the
efforts you put forth towards self-improvement can certainly benefit you in all
areas of life, including romance and relationship. You are coming into your own,
and it's a year of self-discovery in many ways.
You are focused on new beginnings at this time in your life, and rightfully so. You are not as interested
in what happened in the past, preferring to move forward without restrictions,
and that's a lot to say about a Cancer, known to be quite attached to the past.
Recently, you've been reinventing yourself, and in the process, there may have
been some people already in your life who have felt a little insecure about the
changes you've been making. Do what you have to do to propel yourself forward,
but be sensitive to those you hold dear. For the most part, though, people are
really enjoying you. You are likely to get a lot of positive feedback, and
you're sure to feel the love coming your way even if it's not explicitly stated.
Even so, there can be some rocky patches. In January, Venus is retrograde in
your partnership zone all month. You could feel stuck in the past regarding
relationships at this time, even with Jupiter encouraging you to look ahead.
Others may be a little cool with you. For some, an ex can return. Mars
retrograde from March to mid-May can serve to confuse desires.
In late May, Jupiter in your sign harmonizes with Saturn in your romance sector.
Because Saturn is also the ruler of your partnership sector, this can be an
especially strong time for strengthening and enjoying a relationship...cont'd
