You’re in a cheerful mood, and keeping it light with others is important right now, dear Cancer, as people are not inclined to make substantial commitments today.

This is not the best day for sticking to the rules or for focused attention, since plans may not pan out as expected, but perhaps the most noticeable area of life with unexpected results is your social life.

There can be a disagreement or obstacle to deal with, or you can experience an inner conflict about going your own way and doing what others expect of you.

Your patience can wear thin at times today, but you could also find the motivation to fix a problem that ultimately serves you well. Today’s Moon encourages a focus on your responsibilities to others or the outside world.

Your resiliency is your best ally today. A setback at work doesn’t need to bring you down unless you let it. Sometimes, it’s hard to begin again because feelings might linger after the damage is done.

Maybe you can’t trust your gut as easily as you once did. Or your confidence has taken a hit, and you wonder if you can make magic happen again.

Start small and keep showing up. Leave positive affirmations in random places like a bathroom mirror, car dashboard, or refrigerator door. The more you step forward, the better you become. Act as if you are a success and you will be one.

The first full week of your birthday month and new solar year is normally a chance to slowly get your bearings and acclimatise to your surroundings.

Yet the Sun’s return over the weekend has revealed major activity ahead of next week’s total solar eclipse in Cancer and the preparations that began in earnest, with Mars’ return nearly six weeks ago.

With Mercury in his last full day in Cancer and Mars his last week, there will be no slowly tiptoeing into your new solar year this time around.
