In astrology, the Sun represents our basic energy system. It affects our health, our vigour and our enthusiasm for a particular area of our life. Throughout the year, the Sun travels through the 12 zodiac signs. When it moves from one sign to another -- likewise, we feel a shift of focus in our physical energy, as well as a change of focus in our lives. This week the Sun moves into Cancer. Cancer is an emotional, changeable sign full of nurturing, caring instincts and above all, humour. Many great comedians have Cancer in their chart, but not the one who asked, "Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, did you like the play?"
For the next four weeks, your focus will be on home, family and your personal life. You will be more involved with a parent than usual. You will be more hands-on with home repairs and home improvements. Family discussions will take place. Fear not because your life will include more than home and family. Venus in your Fifth House will attract fun, entertainment and opportunities for good times! Venus promotes love affairs, romance and enjoyable time spent with children. The arts are favoured as well. You are goal oriented right now and ready to actively pursue your objectives. Enjoy physical activity like athletics with friends and groups.
Fasten your seatbelts! You're busy in the next four weeks. The pace of your days will accelerate as your To-Do list lengthens with appointments, errands, short trips, increased reading and writing plus a myriad of little projects. You'll be keen to talk to others and share your ideas. You'll have no trouble doing this because your ambition is aroused, and this allows you to sally forth with confidence. Nevertheless, you will enjoy entertaining and redecorating your home. Be open to real-estate opportunities that come your way. Because you are so mentally clear in the next several weeks, use this time to tell someone how you feel about something.
This week the Sun moves into one of your Money Houses to stay for the next four weeks. Ka-ching! This will make you think about your values and what is important. You will examine your relationship to your wealth and your possessions. Ask yourself if your stuff serves your needs or are you a slave to what you own? (Think about this.) This is also the classic time to throw a party so you can show something off to others. What you want to do is establish greater control of your life through what you own. One lovely thing that occurs in the weeks ahead is you will appreciate your daily surroundings more and see how much love there is in your world. Sweet!
The Sun is in your sign for the next four weeks. This is the only time all year this happens and when it occurs, it gives you energy. This is why it's your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year! Not only will the Sun energize you, it attracts favourable situations and important people to you. Like magic! You will also feel a strong need to express yourself. Go read ahead! Shop for pretty things for yourself and loved ones. Write down your excellent moneymaking ideas. Be patient with disputes about shared property and inheritances. For the first time in 29 years, older Cancers are claiming their power. And it feels good!
As the Sun changes signs this week, most signs are energized in a different way. You however, will feel something different because the Sun moves into a hidden part of your chart to hide for the next four weeks. This is something different. It's an opportunity for you to get in touch with your subconscious mind and subtle urges you might not always be aware of. For example, we often broadcast two kinds of signals to the world: What is what we think we're trying to do, and the other is what we unconsciously really want to do. In the next four weeks, you will see the discrepancy between these two. It might be illuminating! Ah ha! This will only make you smarter.
You have a popular time ahead in the next four weeks. Accept invitations to party and to join clubs, groups and organizations. Expect to hang out with younger people more than usual. Encourage interaction with others because all sorts of random discussions with people might ultimately trigger something that causes you to change your future goals. (You never know.) Meanwhile, you're pumped to work hard. In fact, many of you are delegating as well as busting your buns. Some of you are involved in a secret love affair at this time as well. (Sheesh!) Others are involved with taking care of someone who needs their help. You're willing to do this because "It's a joy to labour for those you love."
"Hello Sunshine!" For the next four weeks, the Sun is at the top of your chart. This happens only once a year and symbolizes a flattering spotlight on you! The operative word is "flattering." Since you look fabulous in the eyes of bosses, parents and VIPs, the next four weeks are the best time all year to demand a raise, a vacation, better working conditions, changes at home - whatever it is you want because the odds are that you will get it. (Hey, it never hurts to try.) Mercury is also at the top of your chart making you effective when speaking to people in authority. Add this to the fact that you can boost your earnings this year - and you're laughing all the way to the bank!
In the next four weeks, you want to expand your experience of the world! If you can travel - this is what you will choose. If you cannot travel, you will explore your own sandbox. You can also expand your worldly awareness by getting further education or training. Basically, you want to break your everyday mould and do something different! Have an adventure! Make an effort to talk to people from other cultures and different backgrounds because this will be stimulating! Meanwhile, romance with a boss or someone in a position of authority might take place in the next few weeks. Quite likely, someone will approach you for your advice about how to make something look better.
You are upbeat, fun-loving, breezy and casual. However, in the next four weeks, you will be intense about practically everything! I kid you not. That's because you'll be in touch with your deepest feelings. You might even feel compulsive or obsessed about something. You might meet someone who provokes a deep self inquiry into yourself. Perhaps they challenge your value structure? You will take a passionate stance about finances, especially with shared property, inheritances and insurance issues. Nothing will be "casual." Hey - this is a turnaround for you! Not everything will change. You will still grab every opportunity to travel for pleasure in the next few weeks. Yay!
The Sun is opposite your sign for the next four weeks, which draws your attention to partnerships and close friendships and makes you see how these relationships do or do not fulfil your wants and needs. Likewise, (whether you're aware of it or not) you have a chance to study your style in these relationships. This could be a valuable learning experience. Both your Money Houses are also stimulated. Mars makes you keen to work hard to earn money - and spend it. Meanwhile, Venus attracts money and gifts to you from others. (You might also benefit indirectly because your partner gets a bonus or earns more.) It's all good! Romance looks swell as well!
You're in work mode and you shine! In fact, you dazzle! You have high standards about your productivity and efficiency - and you're meeting those standards. (Mars in your sign gives you the energy to work hard just when you want to do so.) Because you're on this incredible roll, you will raise your sites about your health as well. "Yes, I want it all! I want to be productive, effective and as healthy!" This is wonderful news, especially because this energy will last for the next four weeks. For some, this highly charged energy will embrace pets. You might become more involved with a pet or you might get a new pet. Woof! Woof!
Lucky Pisces! It's play city for your sign for the next four weeks. This is a double whammy for you because not only is the Sun travelling through your fellow Water Sign (which definitely benefits you by boosting your energy level and making it easy to do whatever you want, and btw this happens twice a year for you) -- in addition, the Sun is now travelling through the most fun part of your chart, boosting your drive to do what you want and set your own priorities. You want to get out and have a good time! You will feel lighter and happier! You might be more involved with children. All your relationships will be more fun-loving and lighthearted. Welcome this opportunity to freely express yourself!
