Cancer Monthly Forecast


The Sun in Leo transits your 2nd House of income and possessions this month, Cancer. Prepare for a slower month in August after a hectic July. Money could be a bone of contention this month, especially money that you share with another. Jupiter in Taurus is assisting those Cancers who have been working diligently on creative projects. The 2nd House is all about expenses, money, possessions and how you control them or conversely how they control you, Cancer. There could be a tendency to be ultra sensitive concerning security and you may be testy when expenses start to accrue and bills or financial emergencies come into your life suddenly and without warning. Best advice: Sit tight and watch your budget for the moment. On 8/2, Mercury retrogrades in the sign of Virgo (3rd House) and Leo (2nd House) and won't resume direct until 8/26, so pay attention to these areas for delays and possibly some confusion. Additionally, on 8/3, Mars enters your sign for an extended stay until 9/18.

Mars is like a jolt of energy. It will grant you the ability to pursue projects with a passion. Mercury wants you to slow down while Mars wants you to speed up and get tasks accomplished on a fast track. You could feel conflicted about lying low versus giving your all. Relax, Cancer. Having Mars in your sign deepens your sexuality and brings forth a sexual energy and passion for intimacy. Single Cancers could find a new relationship that is sexually based and enjoyable (friends with benefits?) while coupled Cancers will rekindle that spark that originally brought them together. Realize, Cancer, that there could be some controversy whenever Mars transits your sign. What you say and do can and will be held against you, so choose your romantic partners with care and make sure you know who you're dealing with, especially in matters of love.

You could be extremely successful in the field of sales and your life could become public sooner than you might realize. There is fame, fortune and notoriety headed your way. Ask yourself if this is something you really want. It might be time to close the door on the past.

8/28 New Moon in Virgo fine tunes your ability to communicate as Mercury resumes direct motion in Virgo and bestows mental clarity, alertness and the ability to make your point and persuade others to your way of thinking. Another Cancer, Scorpio and a Pisces could play a role in the month's activities.

8/13 Full Moon in Aquarius could highlight the topic of shared resources. The 8th House is a power House to expect the issues of taxes, insurance and mortgages to come up. Do your research, Cancer. There could be some information being deliberately withheld from you.
