Play with the power of attraction
Add your creative hue to the mix
Say it, share it, shout it!
Venus in your sign right up until the 11th continues to make you feel as if your birthday season isn’t over. Or it should, Cancer. It’s certainly time to be circulating, socialising and also doing whatever you can to further those goals. Surprise opportunities, encounters or invitations could put you in the right place at the right time thanks to alignments between Mars and Uranus and Venus at the top of the month.
DO – be flexible when it comes to last minute invites and changes to plans. There is a mysterious force at work. DON’T – rush. As accidents can occur if you do. Also avoid people who create drama and unfamiliar, ‘dodgy’ places. That way you end up with the right kind of excitement. Because if your social life has revolved around Hayu recently, this month continues to offer opportunities to rectify that.
Your future is in motion and is tied to those you know and meet now. 2023 is going to be a pivotal year for you when it comes to your goal attainment. And August is when you can begin to lay the groundwork for this.
Venus in our 1st can often offer us a bigger bite of that love apple than Venus in its ruling 7th. That’s because it boosts our attraction factor because it makes us feel good about ourselves. So, make the most of this and above all, don’t allow negative self-talk to dilute that mojo, Cancer!
There’s a shift occurring around a partnership or your partnership status just prior to Venus heading into your 2nd when it opposes Pluto in Venus’s ruling 7th. What you need to remember however is that love may need patience and time now. This is also due to the increase in retrograde weather this month but also is impacted by the movement of the Sun and Venus through your 2nd and opposing Saturn in your 8th. It’s not that love can’t appear. It can especially if you take advantage of the energy in your 11th at the start of the month and get out, meet and greet. It’s just that due to the big retro energy, this may not be the fastest love off the starting blocks. Take your time and don’t chase.
Open up the vault to something you desire but which you thought gone for good or out of reach. This full Moon is known as the Sturgeon, Grain or Lynx Moon and it activates your financial sector which is already alight all month long. The second chance element comes from the unexpected angles in play between the Moon and Uranus but also between Venus and retrograde Jupiter which occurs six days later. For more see your Full Moon in Aquarius Moonscope.
Once Uranus turns retrograde in your 11th from the 24th, all the outer planets will be retrograde. We have Mercury moving into retro-shade from the 21st in its ruling 3rd. More on this later in this forecast. There is a past flavour and perhaps a resurrection, reunion, re-connection, revival or second time around opportunity around you mid-month which could arrive unexpectedly following the full Moon in your 8th on the 12th.
Between now and on into 2023, you are going to be in a peak energy period where you will be sifting through all areas of your life for continued relevance. Yes, if something revives or returns this month, chances are it (or they!) has a place in your future. However, prepare to shed or discard what you’ve simply outgrown as Mars enters Gemini and your 12th from the 20th. Mars will spend an unusually long time in this house due to a retrograde which will last until January ‘23. There’s no half way or ambiguity with Mars in here. You either feel it or you don’t. It’s hot or it’s not. And you’ll act on this dependent on the temperature.
The Sun enters your 3rd on the 23rd, telling you that it’s now time to walk that talk. You are continuing to benefit from Venus in its ruling 2nd and the angles it made to Chiron, Jupiter and Ceres this month. Anything to do with work, studies, teaching, retail, writing, sharing, communicating and the internet is highlighted for you. Push forward with those ideas which are now grounded in solid reality.
Your diverse, inclusive and individual message is all important too as mid month sees Mercury co-join with Ganymed in what is Mercury’s ruling 3rd. This is an especially important transit for anyone in the LGBTQIA+ community to add their individual voices to the collective and be heard. A rainbow shout out if you like. So, get creative and be loud and proud! Allow the artist in you to express itself and arise. And yes, we are ALL artists and creative. Just as we all have psychic skills. This is about the enrichment diversity and expressing your identity gives us all.
The new Moon in here on the 27th is your time to launch, apply, send out, share, meet, pitch or have that talk. Whatever it is you have to say – say it in whatever way is best. If you are seeking work, this is the day to send out that updated CV and apply – especially before Mercury now in your 4th, goes full retro next month. Talk yourself up but don’t exaggerate. For more on this new Moon see your New Moon in Virgo Moonscope. Provided you have done your research and know how to get your point across, your words have the desired effect. Say it and mean it as we head into September.
In a nutshell: If you’ve something to say or share this month there’s no holding you back, Cancer. Work, career and money making matters continue to be highlighted for you. Along with the power of attraction so work it, baby!
