Sorry for my absence, but I have been dealing with a family trauma, and trying to get it resolved. If you would love to have a wonderful cat who loves the outdoors too, click here and call me and we can work something out.
So all you Cancer's out there, June 21 to July 22 is your time. Cancer's are ruled by the Moon, and the Crab, who walks sideways, signifying not being direct and skirting issues. Cancers withdraw into their shells if they are hurt, and they are easily hurt. Be kind and gentle with a Crab, even if its grumpy and cold. It's just feeling vulnerable and needs to be reassured you won't hurt them or let them down. Cancers rule the 4th house of Home, and are the nesters, the moms, the caregivers, even if they are men. They are also usually good cooks, with lots of people hanging around the house. A lonely Cancer is a sad Cancer.
The Moon moves to a new sign every 2.5 days, or changes moods that often. Cancers are the same, their moods are like roller coasters and the best way to deal with them is to be understanding that their ruler is just pushing and pulling them emotionally all the time. It takes a Cancer many decades to learn to deal with their own personal highs and lows. If you meet a mean, unfriendly loner who is a Cancer, they were deeply hurt and just pulled away from the world. There is a lot of tenderness and love in there, however so its worth the time to try to build a friendship, because they love to love and to be needed. Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Princess Diana, Robin Williams, Kevin Hart, Vin Diesel, Linday Lohan (just needed more love from her family), Director/Producer J.J. Abrams, Cyndi Lauper, Prince Williams, Debbie Harry (left her career at its peak to be with her dying friend), Franz Kafka, Helen Keller, Wolfgang Puck, Orville Redenbacher the popcorn King, and Oscar Hammerstein II——and yes, O. J. Simpson, Bill Cosby and Tokyo Rose, the Japanese Propagandist from WWII. Every sign has the light and dark side to them.
This month has been hard on Cancers with many hard aspects going on around them. Emotions for everyone is running high, and having to deal with intense emotional issues. There is a time for everything and this time is for emotional clearing and lessons to be learned from same.
This weekend, July 15th through the 18th is especially tough as the Sun in sensitive Cancer is Squaring Uranus in Aries, the revolutionary. Mars is inconjunct Uranus as well, this is like an itch you can't scratch and its just niggling at you all the time. Add to this that on July 12th Venus moved into Leo and Mercury moved into Leo on the 14th, so emotions and ego are going hot. People may be very moody, angry or just retreat from the world so as not to get involved with this contentious energy. I suggest the latter move. Do some looking within time, read an inspiring book, listen to music, chill.
But lets not forget about Venus in Leo being about LOVE on a dramatic, Hollywood grand scale. It's time to pull out the stops and declare your love from the mountain tops. It's time for summer love...make a fool or yourself and be romantic and bold now.
On Thursday the 22nd the Sun moves into Leo. Leo is ruled by the Sun, and Leo's are "sunny people" who attract the spotlight and center stage. The Lion is the King of the Jungle and all the beasts therein. He is mighty, strong, smart and proud. Flattery will get you everywhere with a Leo, who live for praise and compliments. Treat them poorly, or heaven forbid, embarrass them, and you will learn to never, ever do that again. The Lion will roar and scare the heck out of you. His pride has been wounded and he will not let that stand! They are also deeply loyal to their friends and love to give them bright, shiny gifts. Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock, Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lawrence, Madonna, Chris Hemsworth, Whitney Houston, Roger Federer, Anita Hill, Ben Afflec, Mila Kunis, Danielle Radcliffe and J.K. Rowling, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George Bernard Shaw, Kevin Spacey, Fidel Castro, Alfred Lord Tennison, Mick Jagger, Barry Bonds, Wilt Chamberlain and Alfred Hitchcock are all Leo’s. They are at the top of their game most of the time, because being the King of the Jungle demands it.
July 19th is a full moon in Capricorn. Full moons are in the sign opposite the Sun at the moment, so this time Sun in Cancer, Full Moon in Capricorn. Sun in Leo, Full Moon in Aquarius, etc. Moon in Capricorn is about power, about being responsible and out int he world. Cancer is the opposite, so this full moon, as they all are, creates a push pull effect between the Sun's intention and emotions. Full Moons are about exploring the depths of emotions, and this Moon is also Squaring Uranus, who is taking center state in the Planetary picture right now.
Uranus is the planet of change, revolution, new ideas, new ways of doing things, sudden events and action. It's a volcano waiting to erupt. Uranus has been asking us all to change for the past few years and has set in motion all the protesting in the world, from Black Lives Matter to Global Climate Change and Anti-Fracking. The revolution has begun. There is no going back.
Every planet has a mission. Uranus is to change things, to make them new, to correct what isn't working. Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, the big picture person. Uranus in Aries is change on steroids and on July 29th Uranus goes retrograde for 5 months exactly. Planets don't really stop moving in the sky, or go backwards, but if you look at Uranus or any retrograde planet, it looks like it is standing still, but really it's just slowed down. This slowing down is to look over your shoulder and see what you didn't deal with and deal!
I have relentlessly hammered you good folks for ages now to change. Uranus is why. She stays in a sign for 7-8 years, we have 2.5 years to go, and the closer she gets to that time in 2018, the stronger is her influence because she knows her time is running out. In retrograde, she is restless and pushy. She does not like slowing down, just like Mars doesn't like it much. She is frustrated, she is looking at what hasn't been taken care of and is upset. For the next 5 months, the revolution is going to be pushing hard to get things done, and has little patience for procrastination. So you can fully expect that the things you have not changed, but need to, are going to be in your face demanding change, solutions, resolution, and revolution if need be. No place to hide this time. It's time to GROW and let go of things that don't work in your life. And if you try to avoid it, it will rise up bigger and scarier than ever and make you deal with it NOW! Embrace the change. It's all good, even if it doesn't quite feel like it. Take that leap of faith and move forward and don't look back. if you suddenly decide to move to Tibet, do it. If you are a banker and always wanted to raise Chickens, do it! If you hate your job, change it. Take risks, or Uranus will take things away anyhow and force you to make other plans anyway. Be the master of your own destiny and change now. And as you change for the better, we all change. Your good energy feeds everyone's good energy, and this is the revolution. Instead of being an unhappy, unfulfilled, chasing crap that isn't really important and finding real joy, this is what we're fighting for. The world is trying to balance and bring us back to center and contentment.
And its' not just us, its the world. Brexit is the tip of the iceberg. This is revolution. Austerity isn't working, and the people are tired of it. Time for the Billionaires to try a little Austerity and see how they like it. People are just going to get mad as hell for real and push back, like they are doing in the streets already. The Pendulum has swung too far, and must be pushed to swing back in balance. And Uranus is all to happy to push now.
Sadly the crazy extremists will also hear the call of Revolution on steroids. We can expect a lot of terrorists attacks the next 5 months, and will hopefully make us so war weary that we can finally talk peace. You can't keep swatting a hornets next and not expect blow back. Peace is the answer. Are you brave enough to create industry in the Middle East and create good jobs so they can live a comfortable lives, get married and support their family and stop lashing out at us because we support the people who oppress them? Can we do a massive food drop over North Korea and feed these people and show them that America is not the bad guy, but a good guy who cares about them. Solving problems, not stomping on them, is the way of the future.
And finally for July's end we have two weeks back to back of the Republican (18th -21st) and Democratic 25th -28th) conventions. All this in the midst of Uranus playing center stage. Tues the 19th at the Republican Convention will be a crazy, crazy day of high emotions and sudden events. There will be amazing happenings so I recommend a ring-side seat or at least watch the nightly news for highlights for both gatherings. And the day after the conventions are over, Uranus goes into retrograde frustration mode, so whatever happens here, will create some real frustrations for everyone that will play out till the end of December this year.
Sun is in Leo is the peak of Summer. It's party time...picnics, beaches, outdoor parties, bbq's and friends and family gathered around. Keep your friends and family close, pray for the planet to find the easier path to revolution, and maybe you'll fall in love with your partner again or find new, big love. The sun is in Leo until August 23rd, so plan so have some fun while you're working on your changes!
Till next time....
