May Horoscope for Cancer
(June 21st – July 22nd)
Your career and friendships are changing. You’re attracting others who are independent and strong. It’s a good influence on you. With your goals and career in a state of adjustment, stability has to come from within. Relationships are supportive and focused.
Cancer rules the inner world of emotions; it struggles with trying to fit in without repressing what makes it unique. When you’re young you worry less about preserving your specialness, because you want to be accepted by your peers and you’re still defining who you are. However, once you’re out in the world, it’s differences that get you attention and help you become successful. You have to offer the world something new to get its attention. Without a connection to yourself, to your dreams and imagination you will not access your creativity or your destiny. So, do spend time with yourself and make it a mission to hear that voice that always emerges when you need good advice. All water signs are naturally intuitive, even psychic, but if you don’t listen to yourself, all that good advice and guidance is lost. Everything you need is within you; listen to yourself above all other things and you’ll find your way.
The Full Moon falls into the 6th and 12th houses. It’s time to reexamine what you want to accomplish and focus on getting there. Cancers are often resistant to stepping out into the world but it has to happen if you want to advance. Examine your fears and face them. When you can fully commit to something it gets done. You are a force to reckon with when you commit with your body, mind and spirit. The Moon in Sagittarius gives you access to your innate wisdom. The Sun in the 12th house demands faith, so move into the unknown and know the way will be shown.
On May 15th a major shift in the heavens happens: Uranus leaves Aries and moves into Taurus. Now freedom and expressing what makes you unique will become even more important. In Taurus, Uranus will shake up your social life and a desire to do something of value. For most of the month Uranus is in square to Mars and so there is anger and frustration that goes along with the change. In fact, Uranus will remain in Taurus for seven years and so a new adventure and cycle is about to happen. You may find that you make new friends, that you are attracted to different people who offer you new opportunities and ways of expressing yourself. Strength is what gets your attention now, not victims or lazy souls who want you to take care of them. With your focus on the doers, their energy will encourage you to give your all.
Uranus is leaving your 10th house of career, so your business, profession or goals are changing along with the shift. You see your life differently now, and you want either more of what you have or something different. Whatever new ideas you gleaned over the last seven years are meant to be put into practice now, if you haven’t already begun the process. As the shift occurs, control is not possible, so have a little faith. As a Cancer, change is not a simple thing, you prefer a routine. Just remember new routines can be forged.
There is a grand trine in water with Jupiter, Neptune and Venus. This is a fabulous time to get in touch with your emotions and let them guide you. You will have support from others and feel confident about who you are and where you’re going. Your work schedule should be good, and clarity is not a problem.
Relationships are intense. Your partner, if you have one, is going through some major changes. He or she is not very flexible at the moment, they know what they want and how to get it and they are focused on moving toward their goals. The best thing you can do is support them. Remember, the stronger your partner feels, the easier the relationship. When everyone is trying to please and no one knows what they want -- nothing happens. Your mission now is to be more independent. It’s time to learn how to nurture yourself. If you want a favor, give a favor – don’t expect it. If you’re not in a relationship, you may find that you’re attracted to someone with strong goals and a set of powerful values. This adds to your own sense of self, and makes you look at who you are. Relationships should not be difficult, but they do exist to help you grow.
