Hi there, Cancer! Mercury is back on track in your sign in August after his recent retrograde spell, so you will finally be able to get your point across without being misunderstood! Those conversations which seemed to hit a wall during the last week in July, will be back on the table for some clear and concise resolution now, as Mercury spends the first eleven days of the month redeeming himself. Feeling overlooked or not listened to may also have been an issue, and again, this should begin to ease for you. The Moon’s north node also continues his passage through Cancer, and this month will be passing over the natal Suns of crabs born between the 5th and 13th of July. This is a time for pushing yourself right out of your comfort zone and trying something completely new. If you’re tentative about making these changes, destiny is sure to give you a supportive nudge in the direction of some suitable challenges over the next few weeks!
Jupiter also turns direct this month, shifting back into forward motion in your work zone on the 12th. The past two months may have been something of a struggle for you, as situations have arisen which have forced you to reflect on how thorough you have been in following procedures and instructions. You are moving forward now with a renewed sense of confidence. The first two weeks of August should be highly productive as Jupiter trines the Sun; these are wonderful days for mentoring others, retraining or dealing with overseas connections. Your larger than life personality will be infectious during these days, and you may find others are looking to you to lead the way in uncertain situations. Just make sure you are listening carefully to advice, as your self-assured approach can make it harder to accept that you may need help.
The lunar calendar is a busy one this month, with two new Moons offering us plenty of opportunities to turn over a new leaf. Venus is closely linked to these lunar events, hence the changes you make are more likely to be connected to love and romance, your appearance, and compromise and mediation. The new Moon of the 1st focuses on finances, and is a fabulous time to make some extra money to pay the bills. Creative projects will be especially beneficial for you now, such as ventures connected to furniture or property renovation, beauty products and jewellery. The full Moon on the 13th on the other hand is all about prioritising debt repayments and putting a plan in place to settle credit cards, loans and mortgages. The 30th sends a new Moon to your communication sector, and an important conversation during the last days of the month could see someone declaring unexpected feelings of love or affection for you.
Uranus will be retrograde in your house of friends after the 12th, this could be the start of a turbulent period in friendship groups. People around you may seem to be behaving erratically again, and you will have no way of predicting how they will react. Uranus’s square with Mercury from the 13th to 20th is also a tricky aspect, signifying the potential for petty arguments of squabbles about possessions or money. The air will be one of irritability and emotional overreaction, so it’s not the best of weeks for reasoning with others in your social group or trying to plan a meet up. Wait if you can until Mercury and Uranus meet again in a more positive connection after the 29th and into early September. Have a glorious month!
