Uranus is now retrograde for the next five months, dear Cancer, and things tend to calm down on the social front, at least outwardly.

It’s a useful period for processing recent changes and events with friends. This will benefit you greatly and help prevent impulsive, regrettable decisions.

You are learning that you are more faithful to yourself when you act from your heart rather than merely reacting to others and circumstances. Mercury has just left your sign and entered your resources sector, where it will influence until the 29th.

Mercury spent the June 26-July 19 in this sector but then turned retrograde and retreated into your sign for a spell.

Going forward, you approach your finances from a new, refreshed perspective. It’s a good time for padding your income through communications, networking, sharing, and word of mouth for some of you.

It’s one of the best periods of the year for money-making ideas. It’s also a good time for getting down to brass tacks when it comes to planning and dealing with your practical affairs.

Fate and free will are two sides of the same coin. With countless options for connections, the sea of opinion often produces resignation and cynicism.

The ego projects to exclude, and therefore to deceive. By accepting yourself wholly, you integrate any shadow energies and are released to be authentic in all your actions.

Share yourself without worrying about your image or reputation; live beyond the black-and-white thinking of good and bad. Everything just is, and your security in yourself helps others to feel safe. Start each day with a grateful heart.

Had Mercury not left Cancer yesterday he would be feeling the pressure from the Moon today, having come full circle from last month’s lunar eclipse in your relationship sector.

You have not only dodged a bullet but as the planet of communication, Mercury’s influence is able to give the emotional responses being fuelled a voice.

This is tapping into support for friendship and relationship building, turning what could have been a challenge into an opportunity. In the meantime, both income and job matters have just been given the green light.

Today’s Quote: “Stay positive and happy. Work hard and don’t give up hope. Be open to criticism and keep learning. Surround yourself with happy, warm and genuine people.”
