Life can feel vaguely chaotic, or you may be feeling a little out of step today, dear Cancer. This may be a sense that you’re missing something or not entirely on top of things.

It’s a better time to draw on your imagination for envisioning the things that might help balance your life than it is to implement something new. You’re best off leaving the actual pursuit of these things to a more productive and clear day.

Try to carve out some time for rest and reflection. The desire to fill your needs for comfort can be strong, but watch for excesses. New energy is coming your way tomorrow in the form of a New Moon, and this can help renew your motivation. It might also turn your attention to new and exciting endeavors.

You may be concerned about a loved one who is going through a rough patch today. You sense their plight and try to do what you can, but sometimes your best move is to put on your own oxygen mask before helping others.

You are currently transforming your entire approach to how you relate to people. Your needs are just as important as someone else’s.

You cannot run to everyone’s aid and leave yourself in the lurch. However, it doesn’t take much effort to initiate a productive conversation with a person who needs a friendly ear. Listening is powerful medicine.

At the same time that there are some exciting developments across the income, work and career fronts, which are set to intensify over the coming days and weeks, the Moon and Mercury bring a chance to hear yourself think.

Eight days after your birthday month ended and four weeks after a total solar eclipse earlier in the month, the Moon has come full circle and with it a chance to regroup.

With Mercury back in Cancer and in his last full day in retrograde motion, this is a valuable chance to find time to hear yourself think.

Today’s Quote: “I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.”
