Diana's Monthly Cancer Forecast for May 2016
Until the 21st the Solar energy makes it a forward-moving phase when friendships, associations 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 may also be emphasized.
This will be a period in which to discuss, consider, and generally chew the fat in the company of others. You also may be networking or spending more time online. Others could find you articulate and your ideas interesting and you feel in an experimental mood as you explore different ideas or avenues of expression. You could be surprised by another’s style or unusual take on things. Equally others could see you as unconventional or inspiring.
Mercury is retrograde until the 22nd which means hold-ups or having to think things through more carefully.
A CHERISHED HOPE WITHIN REACH
Until the 24th Venus warms group relationships and other associations. You will tend to feel supported by others who are singing from the same page or have common interests, as you move forwards with something you have hoped for, maybe for a long time. Networking, group gatherings or team efforts benefit from Venus’s sociable, helpful mood. Anything related to technology or activity online may be interesting, materially beneficial and, in general facilitate positive experiences. As Venus also rules money and property, you may benefit materially through groups, friends or special associations.
FEED THE SOUL, HEAL THE BODY
From the 24th there may be less opportunity to share your feelings in a spontaneous way. You’ll tend to keep things to yourself and may be feeling uncertain about where you stand in a relationship, regarding finances or a property. You could be mulling over the past and finding emotions getting in the way of rational thinking. Others can be oblivious to what’s going on for you as you take a step back, touch base and, with Venus’s knack of finding the balance, you gently iron out any inner turbulence or physical imbalance. This long transit means you are likely to feel more supported by others within a closed circle or other special environment. It is likely you can benefit materially through others in these types of shared environments. A good idea would be to immerse yourself in nurturing pursuits which feed your soul whenever you can.
Mars is retrograde all month which tends to mute the action and may cause some re-thinking. Those born either in the first week or with up to 8 degrees rising will be feeling the effects most. This is not a great time to initiate a competition or a fight you dearly need to win. If possible, wait until the retrograde is over.
Until the 28th 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.
A NEW SENSE OF SELF?
From the 28th Mars is in a more spontaneous, and for some, romantic area, giving you the trigger to be more in the mood to take a chance on love or to speculate upon other possibilities. Mars tends to be hasty, so it’s best to sleep on something before making major decisions and don’t risk what you can’t afford to lose. There could be occasions when you feel at the centre of attention or more physically in demand. Your creative energy, or competitiveness will tend to come to the fore. Whatever is going on, you could feel more in your power, more in touch with your ‘child within’ but equally, you could be busier because of children or younger ones in your life. Overall this is the time to get active with projects you enjoy and which are rewarding and empowering. Great for the entrepreneurs and ‘creatives’ amongst you, and you may be more in the mood to invest time or resources on an outside chance.
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 put aside personal desires and become 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 feel let down.
STITCHES IN TIME
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 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 3rd-8th July with from 12-16 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this forecast period.
FLIT LIKE A BUTTERFLY
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 3rd-6th July or with 12-1 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
