This is a time in the lunar month for giving your consideration to your long-range goals and plans, dear Cancer. Looking at the bigger picture can soothe you, although today’s energies can be on the tense side at times.

When uncertainty prevails, it may be better to avoid the temptation to try to control situations around you as a means of compensation something that a Venus-Pluto aspect occurring now inclines us to do.

There can be difficulties coming to a place of agreement or understanding. Arguments can stem from people expecting one another to read their minds or to intuit what it is they need and want. It may be better to ask, either yourself or someone special, in clear terms.

Even so, with people more sensitive than usual, it may be an even better choice to observe, wait, and see. Today does hold some incredible energy for releasing tension if you tap into it. It can be a time for the release of a block related to news, education, or travel.

Following a self-disciplined path doesn’t mean that enjoying an occasional treat is out of the question. Fully savor a tasty meal or snack. Hit the snooze button for that extra five minutes of shut eye.

Wear your comfy pants instead of those stylish ones that make you squirm. Staying on task with determination is a truly worthwhile aim; being kind to yourself along the way can help ensure that you successfully stick with your goals from beginning to end. Little things make a big difference.

You might be just three days away from a New Moon in your career sector, but even the professional gods aren’t showing any signs of urgency.

Instead, with Jupiter and Ceres both in their last full week in direct motion in your work sector and with both slowing to a crawl, there is a decided lack of urgency.

With Venus and Mercury not getting heart and head in the game professionally until later in the month, all the signs suggest that slow and steady is the perfect pace for now.
