Good, good, good karmic vibrations!
Make the change to let love in
Happy birthday like no other, Cancer
Your birthday season begins early when Venus planet of all-out attraction and gorgeousification, invites you to indulge yourself and get creative about your image when it arrives in your sign on the 2nd. And the next day it aligns to newly arrived Jupiter in your 9th. Jupiter is not just in its ruling house but its ancient ruling sign. Making this not just one of the most beautiful, lucky and solution bearing aspects of the entire year – but of the past 12! Call this an early birthday gift. Look at what it is you want to attract (or who!), Cancer.
Love is in the air!
It’s a month which hands you a series of incredible, door opening, free flowing aspects in a series of trines. Venus will trine Neptune also in your 9th on the 21st – the day the Sun lands in your 1st. The 22nd a Grand Water Trine between Venus, your ruler the Moon in your 5th and Neptune bringing heaven-sent love, enhanced creativity or divine psychic insights while the Sun in your 1st will trine Jupiter on the 23rd – again, for the first time in 12 years.
Opportunities which open your heart and your world and literally take your breath away could be on offer. But first, understand that for us to have those, something has to change. We can’t just bolt that dream on to our existing life and things go on exactly the way they were before. It doesn’t work like that! For instance, say your deepest wish for the coming year is for that one special person. To have the relationship with that person you need to make room for them. Everything from closet space to that schedule. You have had to change things but what you receive in return is so much better.
Serving empowered change
If you want career success, you know you have to work longer hours or upskill to get that better job or promotion. And then you have to continue on that path. You have made a change to get a positive change. But change is always needed to get what we desire. If we are not prepared to do this, then we may get what we want – but not keep it. Or find deal breakers. Not always however.
Make or break – both ask for change and this is what you are doing this month leading up to the eclipse in your 12th at the time of the new Moon on the 10th. Prior to this we have Mars in your 1st opposing Pluto on the 5th, and then the Venus/Pluto opposition on the 23rd. And in between – a touch of magic high above our heads. And not just with those trines. But as above, so below as nature reflects what is happening in the heavens.
Fly high, butterfly
High above our heads in the month of June – magic happens. Not just this year of the birthday trines for you, but every year. It’s just solstice coincidence this is happening this year right when you are served so much potential. I’m talking about the migration of the Painted Lady butterflies.
Each year at this time, clouds of these beautiful butterflies arrive. Their paper-delicate wings having brought them all the way here from Africa. And they continue on from here, up into the Arctic Circle – to Norway and Iceland, in search of the perfect conditions to stay and to mate. And then they return.
This is a 12,000 km round trip and no single butterfly completes it. It takes several generations to head north and then back again. When they arrive here the conditions are right for them. Or if not they will continue onwards. So, think of this as a metaphor – they explore and go in search of the perfect place to attract love and what they want. And are willing to make the change to do this. A future setting meeting between Ceres and Uranus in its ruling 11th could send you off in search of a whole new world – or simply a goal on the 11th. And you won’t be afraid to leave behind the status quo to get it.
This occurs the day after a soul-defining eclipse in your 12th at the time of the new Moon on the 10th. Eclipses always conceal and if this occurs in your 12th, whether or not the eclipse is a total one – this isn’t, this will plunge you into darkness. Take it you have a blind spot now. The truth is hidden, the curtains drawn, it’s a total blackout. So, use caution, wait and try to avoid either jumping to conclusions or making big decisions if you are able to. Especially as you also have Mercury still retrograde in your 12th until the 22nd.
The truth is obscured but your intuition isn’t. Don’t ignore what you know deep down inside to be correct. No matter who is telling you that it’s wrong. Time will prove which one of you is right and here’s your hint: it’s your inner voice.
As a general role to remember: the shadow of this eclipse will directly cross the North Pole. Cover ups could occur around climate change and the effect this is having on the earth’s magnetic core and orbit. Again, this is related to those butterflies and their migration. If travelling, you really do need to allow extra time for delays, cancellations, detours or even the weather!
Once in a lifetime
This is a birthday cycle like no other. In fact, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime packed with limitless potential one. Why? Because when the Sun arrives in your 1st it does so at the same time both Jupiter and Pisces are in your 9th house and their ruling sign of Pisces. This can only happen approximately once every 165 years! The Sun will of course, trine both planets as it moves through your first. Jupiter in its ruling sign and house is at its most generous, open-handed and lucky. Expect opportunities and solutions.
While the Sun’s alignment to Neptune brings enhanced creative and intuitive visions and the ability to see what stands in your way – and dissolve blocks and barriers to freedom effortlessly.
The Sun’s trine to Jupiter will also expose anything still lurking in the shadow of that eclipse. Think of Jupiter as acting like a searchlight seeking out the truth hidden within the mists. Your own cosmic lighthouse keeper guiding you towards clarity. Remember, sometimes the truth is hidden in plain sight.
It’s also a time of good karma. Especially when it comes to you and another as we build towards the full Moon in your 7th on the 24th. The day before this, we have Venus in your 1st opposes Pluto in here. One relationship may transform now or it could be your relationship status transforms. One person opposite you acts as a mirror. Or there is a mutual attraction taking place now as sometimes we mirror each other.
This full Moon is traditionally known as the Strawberry Moon as this is the time when we would see them ripen – before air transport made them available year-round. So, look to what duo, double act or duet ‘ripens’ under it! Or plant those seeds for something to ripen later this year.
So, imagine yourself entering a cycle of opportunity like no other as your new cycle starts, Cancer. Venus moves off into its ruling 2nd on the 27th. Does that vision need backing? Venus in here gets you appreciating what you already have at your disposal to leverage towards getting what you want. This includes your talents, abilities and skills. And the people who can help too. Your self-esteem will be in focus now and next month when the Sun exits your sign and follows.
Knowing you deserve having that dream come true and newer, better experiences, is your first step towards experiencing and having them. Don’t forget – if your dream is not coming true it’s because you need a bigger dream., Cancer.
In a nutshell: Welcome to your new cycle which has been 165 years in the making. Between now and ’22 prepare for a cycle of attraction like no other. Got some good karma credits? This birthday sees them paid in interest, Cancer!
