Summary Cancer Horoscope: An emphasis on money, with two major eclipses in your financial sectors. Mercury retrograde could see a communication matter come up for review. Saturn direct in your work and health zone could straighten out a health or job-related matter.
Extended Cancer Horoscope: There’s sure to be lots of activity in your life this month, with two game changing eclipses, Mercury and Uranus going retrograde, and Saturn going direct!
The month begins with two major heavy hitting planets, Jupiter and Pluto, squaring one another on August 4th in your home and relationship sectors. You might have difficulties relationship, family member, or housing project.
This aspect has occurred before- in late November 2016 and late March 2017– so think back to those times for clues as to themes that could emerge.
Then, the first eclipse will be a lunar eclipse on August 7th in your shared finances zone. Luckily, this eclipse will reach out happily to good luck Jupiter in your home house, as well as stable Saturn in your work and health sector, suggesting that you could get a bonus on the job or an inheritance at this time! It’s also possible you take out a loan, pay off a credit card, or buy or sell a home.
Alternatively, this eclipse could signify a surgery or medical procedure.
One thing to be watchful of, however, is the fact that energizer Mars will be zooming through your salary zone, directly opposite this eclipse. It’s possible that expenses will be high at this time. Watch the desire to spend money on personal possessions.
Some good days to address money needs are August 10th, 13th, 16th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 27th. Luckily, I don’t see any other negative squares or oppositions between planets in your salary house this month!
In fact, the solar eclipse on August 21st takes place in your salary sector, and it is the most gorgeous eclipse! It will conjunct motivator Mars and the fated North Node, reach out happily to Jupiter and Uranus in your home and career houses, and trine stable Saturn in your work and health zone!
All signs are pointing to success with jobs, income, and career. You may even launch a new source of income or get a new job.
There is reason to suggest that you make any moves earlier than the eclipse, however, as on August 13th Mercury goes retrograde, and I think we all know to stay away from Mercury retrograde by now!
This time, the retrograde will take place in your communication house, so you may need to review and revise a contractual matter. I would avoid making any major commitments “official” during this time or signing any contracts. You could find down the road that whatever you committed to is not what you thought it was.
Mercury also rules your 12th house of closure and bad habits, so this is an area of life that could come up for review as well. Mercury goes direct on September 5th.
Switching gears, you’ll be pleased to hear that love planet Venus is gliding through your sign of Cancer this month, blessing personal projects and relationships.
Venus will make loving aspects to Mercury, Neptune, and Pluto respectively on August 10th, 12th, and 15th, so these are wonderful days to address relationship needs.
Days I would avoid are August 17th and August 24th, when Venus will be angry with Jupiter and then Uranus in your home and career houses.
Luckily, August 27th sees the Sun in your home house reach out happily to Saturn in your work and health zone. Even better, on August 25th, Saturn goes direct in your work and health zone, suggesting that a job or health-related matter will speed up or become easier.
