This year, your birthday month sees a lot planets in fixed signs, plus Saturn in Virgo in your solar third house of daily life. Earth energy is abundant too, with Pluto in conservative Capricorn and Mars in stubborn Taurus for half the month. Add it all up and you seemingly get a recipe for stable month with slow and deliberate action, with not much change in your routine. But that’s only half the story.
The rest of your solar chart is just rolling right along like a train on greased wheels, not entirely under control. For one thing, we’ve got eclipses this month (July 7 and 22) that affect you and your partner sign of Capricorn. We’ve got Uranus in your solar house of travel, stationing, getting powerful, and then retrograding. We’ve got jumpy Gemini energy bouncing around the sector of your chart that deals with the subconscious mind.
The eclipses indicate rapid personal growth for you, whether you’re in the mood for it or not, often occurring in surprising or even bewildering ways. Partnerships and your love life may be affected too. Uranus in your solar 9th house likes group travel or travel with friends, and it indicates that broadening your horizons in some way could be very beneficial, even if that simply means studying some interesting subject. And the Gemini action indicates that your subconscious mind is percolating with spiritual growth.
The bottom line is that during the next 12 months, you are going to be going a great distance–mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and/or physically. Next year at this time, it will be your career that will be ripe for action and change, but for the moment it is your personal development that is key. If you were born at the very beginning of your sign, the depth and breadth of your growth will be tremendous. All areas of your life will be affected. But even Cancers born later in the sign will be going and growing this year. You’re at a turning point, Cancer–and hopefully that’s good news.
