CancerBy Stephanie Shea
Cancer (6/21 - 7/23)
You’ll feel more “in the flow” this month, as the influence of both Venus and Mercury retrograde will clear. By mid-month, the “shadow” effects of both of these retrograde cycles will end, and you’ll be supported to take new steps forward. Mercury will station direct on May 3rd, but wait until after May 17th to initiate new action, as we’ll still feel the influence of the “shadow” phase of this phenomenon until then.
On May 15th, Mercury will move into Taurus and your 11th house of friendship and community. The second part of the month will be a great time to enjoy the company of others. Consider hosting a party or planning a social outing with friends. Group projects can flourish, as a grounded energy will be available to promote practical conversations that focus on long-term results.
On May 10th, the North Node will end a journey through Virgo that began November 12th, 2015. The Lunar Nodes represent the points where the orbit of the moon crosses the ecliptic (the Sun’s path in the sky from our perspective on Earth). The North Node is the zodiacal point where the Moon crosses the ecliptic on its way North and the sign it’s in sets overarching themes for our planet. While the North Node was in Virgo, the prevailing energies supported constructive participation, following through with commitments, establishing clear boundaries, and physical wellbeing. Because the Lunar Nodes move backwards through the zodiac, the North Node will ingress into Leo on May 10th.
After this date, the emphasis will shift from productivity to creative expression. The North Node in Leo, Uranus in Aries, and Saturn in Sagittarius will form a Grand Trine in the fire signs this month that will last from mid-May until October. This energy can help Cancers to make positive changes to their health, finances, and/or career.
The Fire Grand Trine will be activating your 10th house of career and public image, your 2nd house of finance, and your 6th house of daily work and health. For those Cancers in the workforce, the next few months will be a powerful time to pursue career-related goals. All Cancers will benefit from the motivational energy available to help you come out of your “shell” and enjoy positive interactions. It will be an excellent time to step into a leadership role and take charge of your time. You’ll be supported in efforts to improve your health and vitality.
On May 10th, the Scorpio Full Moon will highlight your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. There will be a focus on romantic partnerships and/or your sex life. You could have valuable realizations that help you to acknowledge your need for passion and intimacy. For those Cancers who wish to start a family, the energies will support procreation. Creative projects may come to fruition around this time.
On May 20th, the Sun will ingress into Gemini and your 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious. It will be a powerful time to receive messages from a Higher Power and tune into your inner wisdom. On May 25th, the New Moon in Gemini will provide support for intentions related to calming mental anxiety, exploring spiritual practices, journaling, and acceptance.
