ALL SIGNS: All is not as it seems as Venus tangles with Chiron and Mars squares Neptune this week. Attempting to remove that emotionally charged subjective lens will undoubtedly be easier said than done if, in fact, you do even recognize the degree to which it is skewing your perception. It can be argued that true objectivity is impossible yet upholding this truth too can be challenge. Thus, there is the potential of skipping off into a fog that may conceal a brick wall, a feather bed, or an airy abyss.
CANCER WEEKLY FORECAST
New philosophies can be gleaned from old experiences that seem to enliven themselves out of memory. It seems that pertinent stories of old have a distinct message to relate that can help you in dealing with the situation or feelings you find yourself grappling with at the moment. Try not to hold too tight a grip on old patterns — for instance assuming that because it happened this way last time it will unfold in a similar way now. You have options and learned more over the years anyway so while it may seem like the same old scenario it really isn’t. Follow your gut without apology as a new perspective can be gained that can catapult you into a headspace that is more conducive to the rhythm of your soul. It isn’t predictable and probably doesn’t feel all that ‘safe’ (emotionally anyway). However, if you aren’t willing to step out of your comfort zone and follow your deepest yearnings and express yourself authentically you wouldn’t be doing yourself a favour. Be all you can be even if it scares you.
CANCER SEPTEMBER FORECAST:
Thinker Mercury enters fair-minded Libra on the 2nd setting the tone for most of the month. As Libra rules over your domestic sector you may find yourself thinking about moving or at least setting your home up in a way that is more conducive to helping you get a move on for any long term goals. Perhaps career related issues require you to live a certain way or hold significant sway over the choices you make concerning your living situation. In any case take advantage of Venus’ tour through Virgo this month. You will be able to deal with details and put things together in a more satisfying way but it may take all month to do so. While Venus is under the influence of Virgo the need to be ‘perfect’ is strong and so all the time you spend fussing in effort to be more efficient will eventually pay off but the process can be more than a little tedious for your liking at the moment.
As with any month there are a few hard planetary aspects on the table. First, Mercury squares hard-headed Pluto on the 9th just a day before a dreamy Full Moon in Pisces. Relationships may feel a bit strained causing power struggles yet what seems to be happening is not all together clear. The Full Moon sits next to Chiron evoking painful past memories in need of clearing. The problem with this is that Neptune has a tendency to make attempts at dissolving understandings in order to attune your spirit to higher, more loving and compassionate vibrations. It can be too easy to escape into the corners of your imagination in effort to avoid letting go. The result is confusion or depression. However the chance to open yourself up to the unknown can be extremely liberating. In any case it may feel uncomfortable as this transition takes place within you. This is especially true as you seem to be dealing with so many little things that staying focused on the tasks at hand just become plain old frustrating. Cancer is known to be an emotional sign, like fellow water signs Scorpio and Pisces yet this is precisely what makes you so keen and aware of the emotional states of others. Like nothing else, emotions are at the core of what it means to be human.
It is great news that Mars enters the realm of globetrotter Sagittarius, your house of health and routine on the 13th. You will have more than enough verve to keep on keeping on with all that is demanded of you especially at work. If you choose to start a new health regime it will likely stick, at least while Mars remains in this position until late October. Feeling good in body, mind and spirit is key to feeling secure in every area of your life — the effects just spill over. Also, as mentioned, health conscious Virgo will be influencing your communication sector all month so you may learn a thing or two that inspires you to begin paying greater attention to your health.
Lastly, the Sun enters Libra announcing the autumnal equinox, Mercury glides into the deep waters of Scorpio and Venus returns to its true home in Libra at the end of the month highlighting love, relationships, family and home. October, will be a month to focus on your environment, where and how you live to an even greater degree. Also, the eclipses can bring about far reaching changes that could very well include a home move or change in career. Whatever the case, as with all eclipses, any changes that take place next month will be of the permanent variety so do continue with your efforts of pulling all the corners of your life together and get organized this month.
