Horoscope for the Week of July 13th:
The biggest extreme is between Jupiter and the Sun, which will be the dominant focus this week – But, we have an unusual situation this week: we also have the Sun in opposition to Saturn and Pluto. That means we will be swinging between some pretty wide extremes – between ourselves, and the natural optimism that you have, along with the deeper and darker sides of Saturn and Pluto. It will be an intense week to navigate, but the areas where the planets are in YOUR chart will show you how you will deal with it:
You’ve been examining your life, up close – and the things that you put in high reverence. This is an important process, Cancer, because when you find out what you truly respect and identify with the most, your priorities will shift over to those. It will be a case where you will review what you believe is true, and what you hold dear — and dispense with things that no longer agree with you. It will be a process that isn’t easy, but you’ve had to face this, because there have been occurrences that have tested your commitment to what you believe. It’s a soul-search for sure!
All About Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Element: Water – emotions and feelings
Quality: Cardinal – instigation of new emotional activity
Cancer is the fourth sign in the zodiac and the first sign that is dealing with the element of water. Water is emotions, feelings, and intuition. It is everyone that isn’t said, it is what is felt. Cancer is the mother, the parent of nurturing and caretaking. Whether or not a female or male, Cancer is definitely very protective of itself, as well as children and family members.
The moon rules Cancer. Because the moon has a direct influence over our emotional state at any given time, we can say that Cancer is known for its mood shifts. Cancer is also very sentimental and compassionate.
Associated body part. Each sign has an associated body part. Cancer is the breasts and the stomach. The breasts are associated with feeding and nurturing – from mother to child. And the stomach is where the comfort is, when fed.
The issues of challenge: Since the exploration of feelings is the objective here, blocking emotions could be detrimental to a Cancer. When feelings are blocked, there can be a lack of emotional maturity, overprotectiveness.
The issues of joy: Bringing home and family to wherever you are. Feeding people compassionately, with kindness and sweetness. Remembering the past with bittersweetness and joy.
