week of July 5-July 11 2015
Whether or not you believe we actually went to the Moon, the fact remains that Cancer men often do end up looking a lot like the Man in it. You decide whether or not he might also be described as cheesy. Behold the bald and the beautiful Cancerian males who glow with a kindly condescension, a subtle superiority and a distant devotion. And beware the chrome-dome glare: Patrick Stewart, John Glenn, Yul Brynner, Jeffrey Tambor, Terrence Stamp, Larry David, Jesse Ventura, Montel Williams, Anthony Edwards, Donald Faison, Michael Jace, Vin Diesel, Gerald Ford, Kurtwood Smith, Forest Whitaker, Mel Brooks, Danny Glover, Mike Tyson, Zinedine Zidane, Dalai Lama, Anthony Edwards, Jackie Earle Haley, Dan Aykroyd, David Drake, Prince William and all the future folically challenged Cancerian fellows.
You’re delivered from outmoded, limiting thoughts by the Sun and Mars trining Neptune. Long-suffering projects need your all to bring them home. Then clear the decks for drafting new plans percolating on your brain’s back burner. You may be offered a lead role of some kind. Being in charge isn’t a burning passion now, but it may be a necessity in achieving desired results. Venus and Jupiter trine Uranus can spark an epiphany: You see how expecting the best puts you in the right frame of mind, regardless of any result.
Put focus squarely on you: Mercury conjunct Mars points to a process of individuation. Aiming to please colleagues, clients or cronies gets you nowhere fast. You may be singled out for a new project or opportunity. Surely, you are distinguishing yourself from the pack. You may feel angst in group settings—lest you’re being hailed as a leader, expert or guru, it’s best to eschew them. You strike out in a solo direction. A lone effort tugging at your psyche is to be pursued. In love, too, you prove you can stand alone.
As Venus and Jupiter T-square Moon and Saturn, you undergo an alchemical shift, becoming more golden a child and getting the lead out in harkening to true callings. There may be temptation to relive hedonistic ways. It’s only a test. You haven’t brought your A-game only to backslide at this tipping point. Self-actualization is designed to impress nobody but you. Remember: giving into fleeting pleasures might only postpone lasting joy. Think beyond yourself—getting to a place where you have so much to give.
You’re tempted to go into hiding, with Mars and Sun trining Neptune; but please trust that networking is now crucial. Avoid isolation at all costs; and perish the thought that involving others in your plans dilutes the energy thereof. It actually expands your reach along a web of your own weaving. To be fair, you haven’t exactly been alone, but relying on the kindness of strangers, keeping said connections under wraps. Yet, you now step into the light with all activities. Champions for burning causes are closer than you think.
In anticipation of a Mars/Sun-Neptune/Moon trine, which amps your empathetic power, you needn’t fear being entangled in clingy alliances. Your compassion for others is truly detached. As a result of being burned by some jealous dementors of late, you’re right not to invite input on projects or share plans. Mercury in Cancer frees you to bond with fresh faces who see the truest you: a caring character with a cool remove. A once and future friend may extend an olive branch this week; still, it’s okay if you’re not ready to engage.
Sun and Mars opposed Pluto provides impetus to convey views and feelings creatively, while making you aware of skills and talents that need developing to do exactly that. You see your artistic potential in isolating any obstacles to it. The primary one being the limitations of your own thinking. Even if your art is commerce, take heed: Breaking the rules is making new ones. Don’t edit yourself. Express yourself now in bold strokes; you can always go back and fine tune later. And better to ask forgiveness than permission.
With Saturn square Venus and Jupiter, you exude confidence and renewed authority. You may experience a role swap that puts you in charge of those you’ve followed in the past; while people doing your bidding may need a reminder of the fact. It is key to put any resentments aside. Strike the word revenge from your dictionary. So-called rivals may become lieutenants who carry out your edicts in exchange for your championing their causes. Being in command means delegating liberally, empowering those under your wing.
The Sun and Mars trining Moon and Neptune can make it seem you’re surrounded by beneficent fairies. Indeed, unseen forces do show up to assist you. Life is breathed into your goodly actions, particularly those of a community nature. You divorce yourself from the so-called influential to whose bad behavior you’ve heretofore turned a blind eye, giving praise to those you’ve under-appreciated. You feel the power in wanting what you already have, needing nada from empty promisors. You won’t feel lonely going it alone.
Karma is creeping up on you, which, for most Sadges is a good thing. Mars and Sun opposing Pluto exposes your hypocrisies so that they can be eradicated. There seems to be a disconnect between your professional and private selves. Visualize them coming together. You possess great wisdom, yet forgiveness can be a stumbling block. Beware of scapegoating others for your losing affection for them. Nobody is dictating the company you must keep, so you needn’t fabricate reasons to blame people for cooling on them.
With Saturn squaring Jupiter and Venus you find pleasure in kicking nasty habits and shifting wellness routines into high gear. Ask yourself what situations or relationships most call for some correction. Stick to a sanguine tribe and steer clear of pity partiers, lest you find yourself one of them. Invest energy in areas of interest where it will do the most good for you and others. A tumultuous emotional past has wrought pearls of wisdom in you. The trick is not to cast them before swindlers of your precious time and energy.
Snafus and setbacks are blessings in disguise, keeping you from multi-tasking your way into full neuron fritz-out. Venus and Jupiter trine Uranus sees group dynamics reach an apex. Making an exit strategy is wise, not a sign of weakness. Whatever you’re doing: If it feels like work, it’s not working. Yours should be a path of no resistance, now. It’s time to focus on solo ambitions, integrating art and commerce. Beware of overindulging to ease any pain. Overpopulating your surroundings can, ironically, make you feel lonelier.
With the Sun and Mars trining the Moon and Neptune, your approach is direct, your actions impulsive and your love tough. Expect a shake-out on the career front as you wax brutally honest. You’re now a wide open book, expecting others to follow suit. You may go out on a limb, socially; and there’s zero wrong with running with a so-called faster crowd, so long as it’s actually going places. Rub elbows with progressive mover-shakers like yourself—don’t hang back with the brutes. You bruise easily, but recover in a jiffy.
