Until the 23rd finances, goods, property or anything which affects your material security or physical wellbeing is likely to have your attention. So key themes are centred around ‘stuff’ – yours (or theirs), and perhaps protecting it, moving it, ditching it or acquiring more. Also seeing how to improve things on a practical, physical, material level which may improve wellbeing – yours or another’s. So that includes what resources you can make use of inside or outside and that includes your inborn resources like talents and abilities, things you value about yourself.


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.


Until the 6th Venus is in an area concerning money, property, possessions and other basic stuff. Overall, it means you can do okay in financial negotiations as your people skills will tend to improve. Buying/selling/renting/leasing tends to go in your favour and investments (especially involving the home base) made under this transit can prove beneficial as long as you are sensible and don’t get pushed into something you are uncomfortable about. Great time to team up and share the load as you get better organized materially, or expanding into new territories and enjoying the trip together. In general, Venus tends to ease things materially and can open the path between money or other goodies and you but, just make sure the traffic isn’t travelling more away from you than towards you – unless this is your choice. 


From the 6th Venus is in a very sociable sector of your solar chart.  She can help you to be articulate in your expression and tends to deliver environments or daily encounters which are more appealing or entertaining, even exotic. Some of you could be in exchanges with others who appreciate your self-expression or there may be more interesting daily encounters or more access to the art and beauty. Media is favoured as is anything artistic. This transit could bring warm, supportive relations with siblings or soul brothers and sisters. You (and another) can do better when buying/selling/promoting etc and if you want to settle a feud or negotiate for something, then you can be very persuasive.    


From the 3rd Mars is in a sector which emphasizes the practical side of any bright ideas. Considering how to manage, operate or fix – anything related to work, health or fitness. You may be more involved with skilled people, health providers, tools or technology. So daily duties and methodologies are highlighted and you might have to get your head around the mechanical details. You can get a lot done if you keep up with daily duties, health matters – yours or another’s – and running repairs. Collaborations can be productive and achieve success but a co-worker or helper may try your patience. Still, it may be a small price to pay if you get your act together in the process.


From the 23rd the Sun is in a sociable, busy area and you could be meeting and greeting or connecting over the wires, corresponding, maybe sharing what you know or sourcing useful information, and probably running around more. It’s a time when you have more on your mind and maybe more to get your head around.


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 30th June-2nd July with from 9-11 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).

Jupiterian expansiveness will tend to support a more outgoing, upbeat, positive frame of mind until September. You may be on a learning curve developing yourself though education, speaking, writing or other forms of creative expression. There could be more interesting daily exchanges which are positive, revealing or there are more comings and goings to and from a locality. New concepts, jargons and connections will be carved into your mental landscape between now and August.  Early Cancerians and Cancerians born from 13th-21st July or with 21-29 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.

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 14-17 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
