Horoscope for the Week of Aug 2nd:
We’ve got two particular planets in aspect with each other; two planets, when combined, make a significant impact. Saturn and the Sun are together at opposite ends of the sky, which can stir up polar opposite extremes in behavior. This means that the Earth is between the Sun and Saturn during this time. We will all find ourselves at the mercy of extremes; it will be a huge flip-flop, but it will help you gain perspective on things that will bring maturity and grace. Let’s take a look at where this unique aspect takes place in your chart:
You’ve been compiling a lot of information on one specific topic. You are actually thinking about taking this information, and perhaps using it in some way that could help other people. However…there are adjustments to be made. You’ve got something involved in this process that is forcing you to take a second look at all of it, and to make sure that what you’re saying, you mean. The world, right now, is seeking the highest level of integrity, and to totally tell the truth. It will be very important for you to make sure that you adhere to this guideline in whatever you’re doing.
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.
