Cancer season has arrived and this is the first full week after the Solstice. There are both pleasant and unpleasant celestial events to look forward to, starting off with Venus leaving Taurus, one of her comfort zones, for flighty, flirty Gemini on Monday. Fire and air folks will enjoy this change because it means fire and air will be closer to equal representation for a change.
Then on Wednesday, Mars in Libra will make its last opposition to Uranus in Aries for which we can all be grateful. It is also the last aspect Mars in Libra will make to the Grand Cross planets because it won’t catch up with Jupiter before it leaves Cancer for Leo on July 16. While this might not mean all the issues we dealt with in April will be resolved, there is a good chance they will slip into the background and demand far less time and energy.
The Cancer New Moon on Friday is a potent mixture of sweet and sour which is bound to give some of us indigestion. It seems to me if we want to make a fresh start on this New Moon, we may have some serious soul searching to do, maybe forgive ourselves and others for causing hurt feelings, etc. Cardinal New Moons do demand action of some kind be taken, for better or worse. A good use of the days leading up to the New Moon is to take care of old business and tidy up loose ends.
Between Venus in Gemini squaring Neptune in Pisces and the Cancer Sun trine Neptune on Sunday, this week comes to an end on a gentle, pleasant note. We may be drifting a little off bubble but no one will care. Mercury in Gemini is dawdling along preparing to station direct on Tuesday, July 1, making it an excellent time to take the day off and go fishing, literally or metaphorically. Good time too for those folks buffeted about by the Mars-Uranus opposition to begin the healing process.
The relative calm of last weekend stays with us through Monday before the pace picks up going into the mid-week Mars-Uranus opposition. Keep a close eye out for reckless behaviors and drive defensively. After the Cancer New Moon early Friday morning, calm should begin to return for the weekend.
If you know your Rising sign, please read the horoscope for it too. 😀
Making assumptions and jumping to conclusions could be classified as reckless behavior on your part now, Aries. Despite how you might feel, your partner and family members really aren’t going to force you to do something you don’t want to do. Good time to practice delayed gratification.
Funny sort of week for you, Taurus, where you may be blind-sided by unexpected interference if you decide to make some changes to your daily routines. Given how much you like change of any kind, this could derail your efforts and that would be a shame. Lend a sympathetic ear to close friends with woes.
On the plus side, Gemini, this week looks very good for your self esteem as you may attract plenty of favorable attention. However be very cautious about getting involved with exciting but dangerous types and be careful when flirting with intent, especially this weekend. Too many unknowns.
Probably the best thing you can do for yourself this week, Cancer, is to give your life a good housecleaning and toss out people and situations that have been giving you grief. That way you can make a clean start after the upcoming New Moon on Friday. You deserve it!
You may be pleasantly surprised by people actively seeking you out at social occasions, Leo, probably because your cheerful face has an extra sparkle these days. However, you might need to bite your tongue a time or two this week because it may more challenging than usual to be tactful and charming.
The atmosphere at work could improve for you this week, Virgo, as those you work with begin to see you in a more favorable light. Be aware you may not be thinking all that clearly as the week progresses and especially over the weekend. Not the best time to make important decisions.
Another tricky week for you to navigate, Libra. On one hand your perspective improves and you can review recent events more clearly, and on the other, you could have problems hanging on to your temper due to other people’s erratic behaviors. Hopefully you will be able to resolve some lingering issues from April.
You don’t mind the occasional change in your daily routines, Scorpio, because it keeps you on your toes but there have been far too many of those recently and it’s getting to you. Maybe it’s time to get out of town over the weekend for some rest and relaxation.
If you end up discussing social injustice with some of your friends this week, Sagittarius, things could get heated very quickly and spoil an otherwise pleasant occasion. Make sure you double check the details if you are planning a romantic get-away this weekend . . . like confirming reservations, etc.
This may turn out to be a very lively week for you, Capricorn, with people needing you to put out fires for them from your partner to your employer or most likely someone at home. Stay calm and ride it out as best you can. Maybe get a little more rest this weekend?
You might have to decide how important it is for you to be right this week, Aquarius. Compromise isn’t always a bad thing and reducing the amount of stress in your life might be worth it. Take another look at your wellness routines this weekend to see how you can improve those.
Impulse buying could get you into trouble this week, Pisces, so do your best to resist going there. A good distraction might be hanging out with your family and getting back in touch with your inner child. Allow yourself a temporary escape from everyday realities over the weekend.
