If Your Birthday is July 12
(The Day of the Persuasive Presence) | Cancer Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Always remember how important your friends are. Never burn a relationship just because you get offended for a second. In this world, all you really have is your life and the people who care about you. Once you find them, develop the relationship and never miss an opportunity to extend your goodwill. Strengthen the world by weaving community.
Written in the Planets
Although the Moon is waning, plenty of other astrology this week is high-energy or is urging a response of some kind. With the Sun and Mars in Cancer, emotionality is definitely part of the picture. Yet the Moon, ruler of Cancer, begins the day in Aquarius — a fixed air sign known for its emotional detachment, its stubbornness (thanks to traditional ruler Saturn) and its originality (thanks to modern ruler Uranus). Keep your antennae up for intuitive lightning bolts and let them energize you, rather than kicking up resistance related to ‘what you’re used to’. Once the Moon enters Pisces later today (see above for times), empathy, sensitivity and imagination may swim around a little more freely. If you’re already feeling tender, know where you might need to shore up psychic boundaries or work to stay grounded.
I’ve now completed your Cancer reading, which is infused with the energy of the Full Moon conjunct Pluto. I describe this in detail, taking it back to the beginning of Pluto in Capricorn. As the reading developed organically, it built up an intensity I was not expecting, ultimately describing the relationship between you and the very wide world that surrounds you.
The reading consists of two, 35-minute downloadable sessions. They can also be played on any device, or added to iTunes.
