The Moon is in Taurus ruled by Venus retrograde in Gemini. Conversations and exchange of information continues to be a major way to realign values, what we attribute worth to, and to basically put our money where our mouth is. Obviously this is a process that won’t happen over night but things are in motion.
Mercury stations retrograde in Cancer Thursday the 18th until July 12th (more on this later), and the Moon enters Gemini a few hours later; We will start to feel a shift from thinking/debating/conversing/conceptualizing to: feeling/creating/connecting in a way that feels closer to our heart. Mercury retrograde in Cancer will highlight basic needs and what that means.
Summer Solstice arrives on June 20th when the Sun enters the sign of Cancer at 17:44 EDT. A few hours later a Solar Eclipse occurs ushering us into Cancer season with a bang. Things continue to be in a state of flux but we are starting to be seasoned navigators on this sea change. This will be the last eclipse in the sign of Cancer in a series that began in July 2018. Look at where Cancer sit in your chart to understand the progress and changes that are now being integrated.
Cancer season underlines emotional safety, connectivity, protection, and support that can be found by creating networks that feels nurturing/sustaining. The deep cracks in broken systems that creates vulnerabilities will continue to be a major concern. How can we take care of each other but also create environments that are conducive to sustainable growth.
As we move into Cancer season we could also be confronted to what feels familiar and who we rely on for feelings of safety. We have to remember that the ones who look after us do not always have our best interest in mind. Sometimes we have to let go of the idea that we are being taken care of, and learn to take care of ourselves. We cannot hide behind our mother’s skirt, and expect the freedom to come and go as we please simultaneously.
Have a nice week, and happy Summer Solstice!
