Welcome to a month filled with lots of thoughts and emotions thanks to the radiant Sun transiting Gemini and several planets making their way in the watery realm of Cancer. The Gemini Sun shifts our focus from our basic survival needs to our ideas, thoughts, and communications – the stuff that creates our reality. The act of creation is first an idea – an inspiration, a moment of recognition. Then, if we choose to acknowledge it and hold it for a few moments longer, it becomes a thought. Once it is a thought, we then have a choice to as to whether or not we take action(s) to manifest it. That action may be physical action, or we may formulate words to communicate it to others through written or spoken language, or both. Then once we have acted and/or communicated in alignment with our thought, we’ve put that energy out into the world and given others the power to share in its manifestation. It has the opportunity to become real once we have allowed it to be revealed and released through action and communication.
Now let’s talk about emotions and feelings– as the month unfolds we find ourselves being submerged into the depth of sensitivity and passion. This all begins on June 4th as Mars enters maternal Cancer, the sign of his fall. Our cosmic soldier isn’t so keen on staying at home, hiding behind Mother’s skirt. Cancer is a water sign. It’s emotional and has a very long memory. Mars is all about being assertive, forceful, competitive, and active. It’s the force that puts us in motion and gets us what we want. When that energy moves into the sign of Cancer, an intuitive sign that runs on emotion, you may not have a clue what it is you are trying to get, but you’re darn well going to get it! It’s sort of like punching your way out of a gunny sack.
By nature, Cancer is not all that assertive, but this is a combination that can give us tremendous energy to build our own nest and move toward what we feel we need. Don’t be surprised to find yourself spending a lot of time cleaning and fixing and building things around the house. Even so, for the next several weeks tempers may flare over issues of feeling uncared for. When Mars enters this zone, it shifts into “how about a little appreciation around here?” Suddenly “Family Feud” is more than just a game. As we sulk in the corner, recovering from our injured feelings, we’ll get to see firsthand what it means to jump into the fray and struggle for authority. By the end of its time in Cancer, the forcefulness of Mars will begin to mellow and we will emerge a little stronger and a little more confident. And with any luck, we’ll emerge a little more caring too. …..Click here to continue reading newsletter
