With a Solar Eclipse bringing powerful energy to your intimacy sector today, this is a period of empowerment and discovery, dear Cancer. This is a time for working on yourself from the inside out, for addressing dependencies and issues of support, and for improving an intimate relationship.
If you’ve been too dependent on others, or the opposite, too proud to ask for help, then you’ll see and feel it acutely at this time, and you’ll want to make changes. The period ahead is outstanding for focusing on issues of intimacy and sharing, as well as for developing self-mastery skills.
Goals to reduce debt, to get support, to quit a bad habit, and to understand your psychological workings better are favored now. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to a relationship or a financial arrangement, then this is a time for coming to terms with the dependency. It can also be a time when you’re wanting/asking for more depth from a project, relationship, or endeavor.
Use this eclipse’s positive blast of energy to sort out financial support issues or emotional entanglements as you go forward. If you’ve been going it alone, this can also be an essential cycle for reaching out and finding the support you need. On the other side of the coin, if dependencies have become burdensome or are limiting your growth, now is a great time to work on putting them behind you.
Taking small, progressive steps makes the most sense. Today’s Venus-Saturn aspect occurs at the same time as the eclipse, acting as an imprint and effectively extending its influence for weeks and even months ahead. While there may be some reserve in your relationships and connections, there can be an excellent feeling of constancy.
Attention to strengthening projects and relationships can have long-term benefits. It’s a good time for dedicating yourself to a project or activity that requires your full attention.
Your relationship to a significant person or organization may be the source of trouble now. An imbalance in power creates unsustainable emotional dynamics as you struggle for dominance or seek an escape route.
But complicated energetic entanglements make a clean victory unlikely as the Aquarius Solar Eclipse destabilizes your 8th House of Shared Resources. Fortunately, there is a solution in sight, but you must be willing to discuss anything and give up everything before a fair compromise can be reached.
