Venus in your sign is a nice boost all around, dear Cancer, and is especially the case when it connects well with other planets as it does today. Your most appealing traits are in the spotlight.

People see the gentleness in you more readily, and you can be a little more approachable as a result.

Your more idealistic and romantic side seems to come out to play since Neptune is the planet in question and it’s a long-term guest in your sector of spirit, adventure, travel, and life goals.

You could easily find yourself dreaming of beautiful things and places. Opportunities for cooperation and shared happiness seem more evident with your current mood.

Your compassion meters go way up, making it a great time to forgive and heal. Healing and replenishing activities are most appropriate now, and you tend to find them quite easily. Take notes if you come up with an idea related to money, business, work, or health.

Interactions with everyone you encounter flow naturally today. You provide a balanced perspective when others move to disrupt the status quo.

If you are engaged in joint projects, you may even consider inviting outside influences to the table.

Foreign concepts add a particular verve to the work that cannot be had by staying within the confines of the familiar. The art of diplomacy is not lost on you. Allow your personal comfort zone to expand for maximum impact.

On the other side of a lunar eclipse that may have taken you on an emotional roller coaster ride, Mercury’s return to Cancer today is a chance to gain some equilibrium.

Three weeks after leaving, Mercury retrogrades back in for a double dip visit, this time on the other side of any challenges and in time to make the final days of your birthday month count.

With the Sun and Venus both leaving Cancer next week, this means that even after your birthday month is over there will still be time to make choices, decisions and plans for the coming year.

Today’s Quote: “Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses. Focus on your character, not your reputation. Focus on your blessings, not your misfortunes.”
