If Your Birthday is July 16
(The Day of the Rising Tide) | Cancer Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
Professional developments will come in unexpected ways. You might stick to a plan, and follow certain protocols (a well-crafted resume, letters of reference, showing up to interviews on time); yet the actual breakthroughs will happen when you’re least expecting them. Be prepared all the time, listen carefully, and dress the part you want to play.
Written in the Planets
The Sun squaring Eris today may shed light on your personal worldview, in the context of the current environment. Amanda Painter has more on this in her most recent Thursday column. Whether you feel threatened, challenged, validated or inspired, remember that in your own milieu you have influence and you have choices. The most important changes don’t always originate on the world stage. Sometimes they start from one person, or a few people, and ripple out like a wave.
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."
