Jupiter begins its yearly, four-month retrograde cycle today, dear Cancer, and this turnaround occurs in your work sector. Enthusiasm for work projects and health endeavors is still in place, but you may begin to see areas of excess that require toning down and adjusting.

This cycle helps you pace yourself and gain perspective. While it can be discouraging at first, it’s, in fact, for practicing some moderation. This can be a time for doing editing work, review, and research.

Try not to take on more and instead focus on what you’ve already begun. Today, you’re in good shape for setting goals and gaining new insights into a special person in your life.

Conversations with others can be very enlightening, particularly those that address long-term goals or the future. You have a little more courage to look at or for the truth.

One peek behind the scenes whets your appetite for more today. A recent interest in the mechanics of how a device works increases or, perhaps, the many moving parts of how an enterprise comes together amplifies your creativity.

You may allow a similar inquisitiveness to spill over into your personal life. Fascination with what makes someone tick adds sparkle to your day, especially if you discover that the feeling is mutual. Let your imagination roam to unfamiliar places and see if your heart follows.

While there is a general call to pace yourself, both personally and professionally, the Moon’s return to Cancer today will bring a new sense of anticipation.

Mars is taking the wind out of your sails because you are now in the final weeks of a nearly two year Mars’ cycle, one that will end with his return to Cancer next month.

With a total solar eclipse during your birthday month, the new doors Mars will open will, in turn, lead to even bigger doors. The Moon’s return to Cancer today brings your first sense that you are preparing for something.

Today’s Quote: “Anyone whose goal is ‘something higher’ must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”
