If Your Birthday is July 19
(The Day of Controlled Movement) | Cancer Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You seem to want something that you’re not sure is good for you, or that you feel might be too much to ask for. You might consider the financial aspect: can you afford what you want, or are you willing to work for it? That appears to be the main consideration. Your priorities will evolve rapidly over the next 12 months; take some time and think things over.
Written in the Planets
Today looks good for practical thinking and organizing, thanks to a trine between Mercury in Leo and Saturn in Sagittarius. The dynamic makes a good balance to the fiery nature of those two signs, helping to focus the energy into purpose. This, in turn, may act as a bit of a foil for the Sun-Uranus square that’s brewing (exact tomorrow). If you’re feeling the urge to break with routine or push against restrictions, you’ll want to do that as consciously as possible. What are your deeper motives and needs? Where — and more importantly, why — do you feel frustrated? The more clearly you can answer those questions, the better you can put Mercury-Saturn to effective use.
I’ve now completed your Cancer reading, which is infused with the energy of the recent 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.
The reading is now available at the published price of $55. You will get instant access. This reading will be followed by a tarot card segment sometime in the next week to month.
Thank you for trusting me as your astrologer.
"Eric, I enjoyed the depth and strength of the Cancer reading. How apropos to do it so close to the moment of the Capricorn Full Moon, Sun in Cancer, moment. I felt deeply connected to much of the reading, both the current moment (turning point), and the historical energy (Pluto in Capricorn). Indeed it has been an intense and deeply revealing time in my relationship life. Thanks for your depth psychology and therapy references, they resonate with me, and speak to the foundational level work I’ve been doing in therapy this past year."
