Until the 23rd your attention could centre around a base of operations, community or family matters or extended family. Property matters – buying/selling/home improvements may features, or it may be about the past affecting the present or sharing. In some respects your gaze will tend to be more inwards and you may be pondering more, or feeling things more deeply. Listen to your instincts!


Until the 7th Mercury is in a very outgoing, chatty area of your Solar chart but it’s also to do with communications equipment, media etc.  Increased interchanges, through consulting or negotiating is more likely, and possibly more paper-work correspondence etc. Overall, it tends to be a great time for making connections, gathering and sharing information, in person or over the wires.

(Mercury and Jupiter at the beginning of the second week means it is easier to get the bigger picture or be more upbeat in your thinking).

(Sun over Pluto at the end of the second week could indicate intensity or a clash of wills/a letting go necessary before moving forward).


From the 7th the mental focus could revolve around family, extended family, neighbours, or property matters. Correspondence and discussions may be about a physical space inside/outside, or points on the map. You may be mulling things over or feeling more emotional or nostalgic. There may be communications with relations or parents for some of you and others may be considering a legacy or a tradition of some kind. Whatever is going on feelings tend to be nearer the surface and certain interchanges may touch a nerve. Either way it tends to be a mentally busy or social time in, around or about a base of operations – wherever that is – or you may be on the move more.

(MID MONTH there could be some surprises with Sun on the degree of Uranus).


Until the 18th the position of Venus can mean a sociable more playful period perhaps making new friends or enjoying old associations. Maybe a boost to your love-life, and some of you could be tying the knot with that special person. You are likely to express yourself in freer or more creative ways and there may be more frequent connections with children, younger people, pets or partners. In general, this energy links you more to anything you personally find empowering or satisfying so, leisure, performance type activities are emphasized. And, most importantly, puts you in touch with your own playful inner child.


From the 18th Venus is in a more practical mood, favourably highlighting teamwork regarding daily chores, learning skills (or maybe which button to push), running repairs or health matters – your own or another’s. Others will probably be in a co-operative, more supportive frame of mind assisting with your requirements.  You are more likely to have reasonable interaction with health-providers, co-workers and anyone providing assistance and so if there has been an ongoing problem chances are you will find someone to help with recovery or repair and, even if the problem is not resolved, the interaction will tend to be pleasant.

(In the last 3 days Venus on Saturn means more restraint or a more formal feeling in how you are relating).


Mars in your opposite sign means personal or professional exchanges are likely to be more dynamic and lively. Because of another, there may be more physical demands put upon you to be decisive or to take action. You and someone could elicit strong opinions in each-other or, conversely, maybe you feel a strong pull towards someone or they feel a strong pull towards you. Once again patience may be needed as Mars here can make you too hasty, handle someone badly, throw caution to the winds, or make a false start. So the advice would be to try to keep things on an even keel and don’t dive in head first at full revs with all guns blazing before you are sure of your ground.

(In the 3rd week Mars on Pluto could lead to extremism or over the top expectations from or to you. However, difficult things can be achieved and ambitions can be successful as long as you are aware of another’s interests as well as your own).

From the 23rd there’s a brighter, less inward, vibration around. So that could manifest as more opportunities to be in environments with scope for play or creativity or empowering activities. Or to be more involved with those in party mood whether as a participant or a facilitator. More emphasis is given to children, youngsters or romantic partners for some, and for others, there could be more socializing and maybe more contact with arts/entertainments or the leisure industry. You are more likely to feel the light of appreciation from others or be participating in activities you find fun or personally empowering.


Saturn is in your area of the job, health matters and all manner of practical tasks. This is a service-orientated area of your Solar chart. But it’s also the stitch-in-time-saves-nine part too. Keeping ahead of the game with the practical side of chores and health matters would be smart. Anything health and fitness related will take time to resolve itself so, be patient! Generally it means harder work and more assistance to others on a regular basis or keeping things ticking over with general maintenance and repairs and that includes the body too. Also it could be a time for plugging away at learning new skills, and generally applying yourself in useful ways.  Service providers, co-workers or even certain equipment or techniques may present obstacles or cramp your style at times. These challenges make you savvy and push you into wiser choices in the future.

Cancerians born 1st-7th July with from 10-16 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this forecast period.

(The current Saturn/Neptune transit brings uncertainty and indecision into this area, so harder work is necessary to clarify things, get organized and go forward in a confident, focused manner. Even though Neptune is in a brilliant angle to your natal Sun, during this transit the closeness to Saturn by degree means you must take a disciplined approach to matters of education, communications and sharing knowledge across a wider field. This is a great time to seek deeper understanding of certain matters important to you, or you could cross paths with a meaningful teaching which opens you to the worlds beyond your current consciousness. Time to reach out into a broader territory mentally or physically. You can be inspirational in conveying what you know to others. But this is no time for ego driven thinking, this is time to be authentic and appreciative for what others can teach you on both the mystical and mundane levels).

Jupiter is at the root of your chart highlighting expansion related to your place on the map, neighbourhood or a space inside or outside. Also this transit helps settle you emotionally and can create a sense of belonging and feeling more inner equilibrium. Outwardly, family and community relationships should improve and some of you will extend or make additions to your base of operations. If you feel cramped or restless where you are located, then, in general, it’s a good time for expanding the existing space or getting more access to somewhere you prefer, maybe abroad, or relocating altogether. 

For some there will be a newcomer in the family or maybe you are accommodating others more often at home and need to rearrange the space. Whatever the reasons behind it this is a good time to make changes. Cancerians born 24th June-3rd July or with 3-12 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this forecast period.

Uranus: Cancerians born 14th-17th July or with 23-25 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.    

Pluto:  Cancerians born 5th-9th July or with 14-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
