The Sun moves into Cancer and the Moon Dominates the Sky

In four days, the Sun will move into Cancer, a sign ruled by the Moon, where it will join Mercury. Mars and Venus are in Leo, a sign ruled by the Sun. Jupiter and Rahu are in Aries, ruled by Mars, and Ketu is in Venus ruled Libra. This means that in four days all of the planets, except Saturn, will come under direct or indirect rulership of the Moon. The Moon is the fastest moving planet and the fact that it spends only two-and one-half day in each sign means there will quickly changing circumstances in most areas of life.

Cancer is a sattvic sign that motivates people to want to do good in the world, but at this time even the best of intentions will be repeatedly frustrated. There will be a lot of small movements towards goals that will seem like progress, but circumstances, emotions, and relationships will quickly change around you and reveal your perceived progress as illusory. There will be a sense of running just to stay in the same place or shuffling side to side like a crab.

The only stable energy in the sky will be Saturn, which is retrograde. This will only add to the sense of frustration. It will feel like the only constants are limitation, obstacles, and failures. The aspect of Saturn and Jupiter on Mars in Leo, the sign of the Sun, project the energy of constriction and expansion on Mars simultaneously. Mars, is the planet of fire, action, metabolism and the life force. This creates a circumstance similar to an alchemical athanor, a furnace of transformation. The frustration, pressure, and heat created by this can force reflection and transformation, but it also can burn you to ash. This is a difficult time, especially for those with a natal Moon in Capricorn, Aquarius, or Pisces, but it is also pregnant with potential.

To understand how these transits affect you an individual analysis is required. The interaction between your natal chart and the transits of the planets is always very individual and personal. Contact me for a reading at .
