The Sun in Cancer Forecast: June 20 - July 22, 2008

By Linda Merlino

The Cancer Personality

Cancer is synonymous with the Moon. The two are symbolically linked. In astrological jargon the Moon rules Cancer. All descriptions of Cancer include security issues and emotions, both of these smacks of the Moon.

The Moon brings change, quick change; like the tides and twenty-eight day cycles. The Moon is one thing one minute and something else the next; dry-eyed then a down pour. The Moon also has loony qualities, like at the Full Moon when there is howling and all manner of strange occurrences.

Take into consideration all of the above, but do not ever under estimate a Cancer person. He or she is the keeper of the past, the smartest, the fastest, and the prettiest and beyond. This is the one person who remembers family history and genealogy because family is the center of their very being.

Cancer often talks about how he or she feels rather than how he or she thinks. This is because Cancer is a water sign. Fluid by nature, Cancer people will navigate their life through emotion rather than logic. Watery reactions can be intense and painful. In crisis, Cancer's vulnerability is exposed. This is when the "crab" symbol appears. Life sometimes requires Cancer folk to hide from the world and to seek a safe haven inside their "shell". The world can be a treacherous place and a crab can maneuver zigzag fashion to avoid head-on-collisions.

If you love a Cancer tell them daily. This reassurance is necessary for his or her emotional security. Cancer mates are happiest when their security is wrapped in a warm financial blanket. Money is comfort, plain and simple. Remember also that your mate likes being near home. This is huge in assuring security. Home is where Cancer feels most comfortable. If you can swim the emotional waters of a Cancer partner your life will be full of memorable family events, scrapbooks and photo albums. Cancer people also love food, almost as much as he or she loves you. With this in mind you could gain a few pounds around the middle, but just remember to enjoy every meal.

The Sun in Cancer Forecast: June 20 - July 22, 2008

ARIES (March 21-April 20) Aries may suffer with headaches this month. You should be mindful of anything having to do with your head. Wear a hat in the sun and all that good stuff. On the job you will have to deal with authority and perhaps there is a conflict of interest. Cosmic Advice: This will be an unusual month for communicating. The energy is at first all over the place, then more emotional and finally full of self-expression. Money can be spent at home and on entertaining.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20) Taurus has the capacity to be very creative this month. The energy is very compatible. Working with children is a possibility, perhaps in a teaching capacity or some type of authority. Communicating takes a few different turns this month. You may at first be discussing money, then what to do with it locally and finally how to spend it at home. Cosmic Advice: Take advantage of the position of your guardian angel. You can travel to places far away or travel in your mind.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Gemini may be disturbed by the demands of family. Something or someone is putting pressure on you, asking you to be responsible. This goes against your grain this month. Normally Gemini seeks independence. This month being independent has a price to pay. Cosmic Gossip: You can speak your own language in the first part of the month. What is said is clear and may cover multiple topics. You do this with ease. Talk turns more emotional mid-month and ends with a host of opportunities coming locally.

CANCER (June 22-July 22) Cancer may have to guard what is said and done to others. There is a tendency to be firm and a bit authoritative this month. Someone close by may not feel well. Be mindful of visiting an older relative. Cosmic Advice: You have been silent over the last several weeks. Silence does not mean you were not thinking. Actually there has been lots of thinking. You will be ready to speak out about ten days into the month. Those around you would be advised to listen.

LEO (July 23-August 22) Leo needs to be careful this month when it comes to money. The purse strings are tight and this could be a strain. Protesting will not change things very much. Remember to lock your car and not to be careless with your wallet. Someone could steal from you. Cosmic Advice: You can learn much through friendships but for a few weeks you should spend more time contemplating before you go and put your feet in your mouth.

VIRGO (August 23-September 22) Virgo may be very impatient. You are not making friends. Your quick retorts are causing some alienation problems. Try to take the time needed to understand what the other guy is trying to do. Demands are what keep you going. Cosmic Advice: At the office you have the attention of your peers. You have spoken and many have listened. This will carry over to your friends and only after that will you want to rest. `

LIBRA (September 23-October 22) Libra has some secrets to keep this month. Do not try to counteract this possibility. Maybe what you know needs to be kept to your self. Much of what is not spoken has gone around before; seems like not much has changed. Cosmic Advice: You have the support of family and that is huge.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) Scorpio continues to demonstrate their affinity for leaping before looking. There is this feeling of being held back. Older acquaintances are valuable to your success. Old friends are the best. Hopes and dreams need attention; the old dreams may have gone stale. Cosmic advice: Conversations revolve around money not yours but money held jointly or that comes from other sources. By the time the month ends you might have enough cash to put into your own endeavors.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21) Sagittarius may find his or her self in a position of authority. Lots of people are looking to you for answers and for guidance. You are held in high esteem. This is all because of what you accomplished in the past. This is your reward. Cosmic Advice: You are speaking adeptly to your partner or in one-to-one situations and as the month progresses look for the shift into joint holdings and then to travel. You could use some of that money to take a nice trip.

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19) Capricorn is feeling very restless but you are wearing cement shoes and can't seem to move off your dime. Unable to shake that feeling of being tied to your job, the kids, routine or your life is tough this month. Cosmic Advice: Travel plans get delayed or getting used to the idea of travel having more rules and expensive keeps you from just taking off.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18) Aquarius is using his or her very honest approach for just about everything. Aquarius is not cut out to lie. Money that is held jointly may be drained. You need money for this and money for that, so there is always something to contend with. Cosmic Advice: Keep yourself busy and don't fret over anything.

PISCES (February 19-March 20) Pisces has some lessons to learn about partnership. Did I hear a groan? Yes, a groan and a sigh of relief. You may be involved in some highly competitive situation. Whether as observer or as a participant, this is the kind of time when having a friend is what we strive for. Cosmic Advice: There be can a mark of serious intent to harm. Try to squash this unhappy sentiment and be ready to face the next day.
