Diana's Monthly Cancer Forecast for May 2015
Until the 21st the Solar energy makes it a forward moving phase when friendships, contacts new and old, or more involvement within a community or a group of kindred spirits could be a key feature. A future-orientated phase when you may be working to realize an idea or ideal which has been on the backburner for a long time. Networking, group connections and technology is also emphasized.
Mercury is working from deeper levels and your mind tends to become introspective and more open to emotional or subtle energies. You may be a little preoccupied, by things going on in the background of your life, and you could find yourself zoning out or just feeling mentally at 6’s and 7’s as things may be a little up-in-the-air. Zoning out isn’t necessarily a bad thing and, at this time, you can do your best thinking in a restful, nurturing environment or in a private bubble with others. Imagination and intuition are working well. Also a good time for healing, spiritual or imaginative activities, so, listen to your inner guidance, hold the vision of how you want it to be, and plan to move beyond what is now getting in the way of your happiness and wellbeing.
Mercury goes retrograde for 3 weeks from the 19th meaning things are undecided or unclear so you may have to let go and let God – or just practice the Law of Attraction. But whether you are consciously working on an outcome you prefer or not, things will inevitably come together, as we live in a constantly evolving and creative universe.
Until the 8th Venus is transiting a more background area of your Solar chart and you’ll tend to keep your feelings to yourself and may be pondering a relationship or quietly weighing up what someone/thing is really worth to you. You could be mulling over the past and finding emotions are getting in the way of the present. Others can be oblivious to what’s going on for you so take a step back, touch base and, with Venus’s knack of finding the balance, you can gently iron out any inner turbulence. A good idea would be to immerse yourself in nurturing pursuits which feed your soul.
Until the 12th Mars is transiting a very future-orientated and sociable area of your Solar chart. You will tend to be the initiator with projects or you have a lot on your plate because of a group with interests or aims in common. Mars can be a bit pushy, so, on the flip side, there may be tensions between you and a friend or associate. Due to certain others, life becomes more demanding or annoying and you may have to be on the ball, competitive and decisive. Just avoid being hasty and don’t allow others to tire you out or push you into something you don’t want. This is a more progressive phase when things which have been shelved, sometimes for a long time, can start to move forwards again. Can be technology orientated so things like the internet and the paraphernalia that goes with it could be emphasized.
Time to get the ball rolling?
SERVING THE COMMON GOOD
From the 12th Mars is in a more inward and private area suggesting things could be busier behind the scenes or in a separate bubble with others. This is a dynamic energy and so you may be putting yourself out for something bigger than you are. But that’s alright for this is a karmic house which is about selflessness.
This Mars transit will encourage a more self-reflective mood where you will be mulling things over whilst in the midst of other activities. Mars here can dip the vitality and you may be feeling somewhat downbeat and talk yourself out of something which could ultimately be good.
This Mars transit will also stimulate the unconscious and your imagination as well as your ability to manifest what you want and shape things from backstage. You may feel happier if you take more time out for yourself to nurture or heal and it’s advisable to work alone whenever you can. Emotions and some frustrations may be nearer the surface and knee jerk reactions are more likely so this is something you may catch yourself doing. Those who take this onboard may just avoid falling down those old emotional holes in the road.
Because your energies are turned inwards, you are more easily affected by outside influences and can get sucked into other people’s stuff, their moods and opinions, so just be more self-protective at this time. Pay attention to dreams, visions, omens and coincidences. Mars here will also underpin practices like yoga, meditation, clairvoyance or healing, or indeed anything which takes you out of yourself so you sustain the energy and enthusiasm you need to be of service where necessary.
GOOD IN YOUR SKIN
From the 8th Venus enters your sign for about 3 weeks supporting a more gregarious, sociable mood. Meeting the world with more ease and enthusiasm after the previous phase which was less certain and more introspective. Reaching out more to connect with others if relationships are thin on the ground.
Close relationships get a boost with more opportunities to mix and mingle successfully or connect with those important to you. With Venus here you will tend to come across as more welcoming and attractive – good news for business as well as your personal life. On the other hand, you could be feeling somewhat self-indulgent and inclined to treat yourself to activities, or purchases which boost morale or are a valuable asset. It’s not all easy-peasy with Venus, which also rules money and other material resources like possessions and property, and you’ll need to work to balance things, so just make sure that the flow of abundance is not flowing more from you than to you – unless that is your choice. Overall this is a good time to work the energy to your advantage in whichever manner is most beneficial.
From the 21st the Solar energies could manifest as a pull towards things going on behind the scenes or in your private life – perhaps to do with the past or perhaps it’s a work in progress. You’ll probably have to be more aware of another’s needs or requirements even when you are not in the mood. Others may not fully realize how much you are dealing with as the Sun is in a karmic house during this phase. But this is no time to cling to ego, as, if you do, you may let yourself down.
STITCHES IN TIME
Saturn is transiting 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 practical 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 22nd-25th June or with 0-4 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A FERTILE SOIL TO EXPERIENCE AND GROW
Jupiter is in your area of piggy-bank, property and possessions. Until next August be open to whatever resource, knowledge or experience might help you expand mentally or physically into fresh territories. Such decisions could teach you a great deal and even turn out to be lucrative or worthwhile in other ways down the line.
Jupiter here will also help you decide what is of highest priority to you at this stage in your life‘s journey. He will help you to think positively about basic resources (money or property) and he will help you realize your own worth through opportunities for you to show others what talents and abilities you have. Others are more likely to show appreciation of your property, talents or experience over this long transit.
Cancerians born 4th-9th July or with 12-17 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Cancerians born 9th-13th July or with 17-20 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
