It’s a total eclipse of the heart, Cancer. The new moon solar eclipse in your sign on July 2 is part of the second series of eclipses taking place via the Cancer-Capricorn axis until 2020. And just so you know, this is the beginning of a brand new era, so cheers to another trip around the sun, moonchild. *Tell me more about the new you, and where you’re headed, please.* Aside from being your solar revolution, the eclipses are helping you break through the emotional barriers holding you back from living your best life. So expect a shift in regard to your inner world, personal identity, and the impact you make on others. Because… like it or not… the spotlight’s on you, Cancer. You’re not the person you were a year ago, and this is legitimate proof of your soul’s growth. Shedding skin is never easy, and you make it seem effortless. A sextile to electric Uranus via your humanitarian-like 11th house could gift you with a new group of friends in the process. Themes related to “me vs. we,” will be very prominent during this time, so make sure to dig deep within yourself, and find the balance you’re craving. SET. YOUR. BOUNDARIES. And while this is something the majority of you have been working on for quite sometime now, it’s still important to be consistent in your efforts. For instance, are the people in your life worth investing your time and energy on? Sounds harsh, but I know you know what I mean. So out with the old and in with the new. This is an excellent time to declutter your living space, and perhaps even debut a new snazzy wardrobe! However, with Mercury stationing retrograde in Leo via your second house of finances on July 7, you may wanna put your extra enticing and VERY swipeable credit card under lock and key. Trust me, I, too, am a fellow Cancer who needs absolutely everything she sets her moon-shaped eyes on. Don’t set yourself up for disaster. The consequences won’t be cute. Remember, the messenger planet slides back in your sign on July 19, in the midst of its notorious retrograde 2-for-1 deal, so don’t make any important decisions (at least) until it turns direct on July 31. Capeesh? Instead, use this time to recharge, reflect, and reassess your current situation. Besides, with Chiron retrograde via your ambitious tenth house of career and legacy in the world, you’re finally taking the lead in your professional life, despite how much you despise taking charge. And with luscious Venus in your sign until the end of the month, you could very well use your sparkling charms to make that shmoney. Happiest of birthdays, Cancer.
