This post is dedicated to all of you out there with the Sun Sign in Cancer and with Cancer Rising! I am a Cancer Rising myself and I am very fond of this Sign. I consider it the most gracious and profound, with the most resources and the most giving. My best friends in the world are Cancer and I am lucky that my model in leadership and management is also born under Cancer. That makes me love this Sun Sign. Cancer people are self-committed to love and harmony, they are loyal and love their families, they make the perfect friends and they are great inspirational leaders. They are very strong even if they come across as very gentle creatures. I love this about them! The Moon is protecting them and they are usually very influenced by the moon. As we have a very powerful new moon in Libra, on the 30th of September 2016, Cancers will feel it. A new fresh start is coming with some tension that I will talk about very soon.
I will write the forecast on the last 4 months of the year 2016. The last 4 months of the year 2016 are the most powerful and challenging of the year 2016. Powerful because we need to think about changing some things in our lives and we need to do it fast and challenging because we have some inner tension that will translate into our immediate environment. Cancers and Cancers Rising are very sensitive to their immediate environment and it is going to be difficult to hold on to all the pressure and all the misunderstanding, mixed messages going around, floating in the air.
We experienced 2 eclipses in the month of September 2016. These eclipses have 2 important negative aspects associated with them: an opposition with Neptune and a square to Saturn. Neptune can bring deceivers and Saturn is craving for more structure and a more organized self.
The first Solar Eclipse was in Virgo, on the 1st of September 2016, and this one had a focus on the way you communicate and some short distance travel. You are faced with some turning points regarding the way you communicate with others and what you say and what they understand. This is going to be rather painful as your intentions are good, but they are not understood. The period is not helping as Mercury Retrograde at this exact time sets the stage for an unhealthy communication. You need to change how you talk to yourself and to others and how you perceive others. The second eclipse was in Pisces, your sister water sign and it was a Lunar Eclipse, on the 16th of September 2016, and it encouraged you to aim higher and think about other paths for the same road. This Lunar Eclipse is not going to be so powerful and harmful, but it is going to change some inner beliefs inside of you.
What Cancer should do to use this energy in a positive way:
- Calm your mind and communicate
As the Solar Eclipse was in Virgo and for a year now you had Jupiter in Virgo, the focus for you was and is on how to communicate in every aspect of your life: with friends, at work, with your lover, with your family, with your children. Some things needed to change and you thought about it for a long time. This eclipse is telling you to calm your mind, stop the self-criticism and enjoy a healthier mind. As you are a very mindful person and you have your EQ sky high (Daniel Goldman’s Emotional Quotient), you will work with yourself and succeed. You can prove in a rational way the power of emotional intelligence and the phoenix effect of being able to reinvent yourself. You have experienced heavy self-criticism as Jupiter transited Virgo and just to give you an idea, the transit happened from August 11, 2015 until September 9, 2016. This transit ended with this powerful Solar Eclipse in Virgo.
Jupiter in Virgo also highlighted short distance travel, going from point A to point B. It’s time to change that too, how you do that and how to make these point A to point B travel easier. Good energy to spend time behind the wheel and enjoy this.
- Do your best with what you have
This is a good time to really think long and good about what you have at your disposal and what you can do with what you have. The Virgo Sun Sign is a very practical one and it is a cardinal one too and you kind of like that. With the Solar Eclipse energy, you are going to be forced to understand that there are some things you can’t change and you are not the savior of the world, as you sometimes think you are and that you must use only what is given to you. And make it good, make it good and make it sound good as this is the energy flow. Communicate that you are doing the best with what you have and things will improve within yourself and within your environment.
- Trust your instinct
With the energy created by the Pisces Lunar Eclipse, the way you trust your instinct and the way you use it makes a difference. The power comes from the Solar Eclipse and not from the Lunar eclipse for all other signs except yours. You are controlled by the Moon and the way you feel and the way your world can be a better place is firmly connected to the Moon. You will have a lot of people around you that will not trust you, will not believe in you and will refuse to follow you. This will make you lose your trust in yourself, but you know you are stronger than this, so please go on and trust your instinct.
As I read a lot, I found this quote from Herman Hesse (Cancer) and I want to dedicate it to all you people that love, trust or follow a Cancer:
“To hold our tongues when everyone is gossiping, to smile without hostility at people and institutions, to compensate for the shortage of love in the world with more love in small, private matters; to be more faithful in our work, to show greater patience, to forgo the cheap revenge obtainable from mockery and criticism: all these are things we can do.”
