An Open Letter To Cancer For June 2021
You are one of the most compassionate and caring of people. You are easily upset too. For that reason alone what you have been through has left an almost indelible mark upon you. From time to time the pain of it all brought a reluctant tear to your eyes. But many of you did your crying alone behind closed doors, or, managed to hide your feelings away, cocooned within Cancer the Crab's hard impenetrable shell. Consequently, from the outside you might have looked impenetrable, indestructible but on the inside you were feeling the impact of it all worse than most. Throughout this dreadful time you have sheltered — metaphorically — like a crab weathering the storm inside your own protective shell. Consequently, you survived. Indeed, you triumphed. Not only that, you have succeeded when other people would have simply shut up shop and run away. But that's not your way of doing things. You are resilient beyond measure; unyielding and undefeated. And guess what: your star is set to rise.
Jupiter — the Greater Benefic — is currently bestowing his blessings upon your reputation and good standing in the community. Let me put it this way: if you were a currency, stockbrokers would be fighting each other to buy you. Yes, your value is on an upward trajectory and the sky is the limit. Yet Jupiter's activity is wrapped in a vale of mystery. Possibly cocooned inside a secret, hidden away from public scrutiny and accountability. Cancer moves in a mysterious way, never direct and overtly discernable but with a zigzagging, ambidextrous convoluted gait. This could mean that first impressions may be illusory, hard to define and quantify. Could your “windfall” be palpable or more subtle; Financial or Spiritual? Whichever it is, the ball has stared to roll.
You continue to aspire to great things. Sun and Saturn energies support constructive endeavour and undertakings. Perhaps you are building for the future and your thoughts turn to the acquisition of land for construction purposes or seeking planning permission to develop a property already owned. Furthermore, Sun conjunction Mercury suggests many meeting are scheduled with professional people. Some of my Cancer friends will, no doubt, be presenting their own CV to potential employers. However, I suspect the emphasis will be on large scale commitments involving sizable loans or juggling established financial commitments.
Interestingly, a potentially auspicious contact between the Lesser and Greater Benefics bodes well for increasing harmonious relationships and extending your spending power. (Splashing some cash on someone you love). This trend could manifest over a broad spectrum of activities from getting engaged/married to opening your own hair and beauty business. What you achieve will ultimately be a reflection of your own innate talents and abilities. Nevertheless, you need to keep your feet firmly on the ground and don't allow yourself to get carried away on a surge of enthusiasm with potentially catastrophic implications for your bank balance or love-life. “All things in moderation” might be a phrase to keep in mind.
Mars and Neptune energize may manifest as an increasing preoccupation with all things both creative and beautiful. In fact this could be a red letter week for dancers and performing artists of all kinds. Those Gemini with an interest in spiritual healing or psychic development might receive good news or encouragement. Indeed, this is an excellent time to scour the pages of The Spirit Guides because hidden there — within the advertisements — could be a life enhancing opportunity for you. This might take the form of a course or workshop. Alternatively, you might find a professional psychic with the insight to answer the questions you are burning to ask. More traditional Gemini may pursue their religious inclinations along more well trodden byways and plan a pilgrimage to some famous Cathedral City like Durham or venture even further north to Lindisfarne. Alternatively, this could be an excellent week to pursue some kind of secret research or private investigation. Doing so might enable you to exert some pivotal leverage which is instrumental in initiating some constructive changes in a hospital, children's nursery or care home which you visit on a regular basis.
You continue to search for ways to restructure your life in an ethical but profound way. Currently, you are finding many of your responsibilities far too burdensome and tiring. I guess a psychologist or a doctor (which I'm not) would use some highly technical phrase to verbally encapsulate your current state of being. Essentially it might be a posh way of telling you “tha's knackered!”. Yes, mentally, emotionally and physically, you have run yourself into the ground caring about others. Typical Cancer behaviour.
The good news is that Mars and Jupiter are coming to the rescue. Give yourself a chance to recuperate. Make time to expand your mind; get out into the fresh air in the park; let the sun shine on your body and allow its natural warmth to comfort and sustain you. Put yourself out in a sustained effort to lift your spirits. You need a little jollity to put the smile back on your face. Become a little self-centred for once in your life. Expend some energy in ways that fulfil your desire to expand your universe. Knowledge is power. Empower yourself. Stop dithering and start “doing”. Curtail your natural propensity to delay and procrastinate. In short: have a laugh; allow yourself to live again; bin the sack-cloth and ashes and find ways to amuse yourself this week!
Do these four words excite you: Love, Myth, Mystery and Magic? Well, in some obscure way most of my Cancer friends are going to experience a small helping of all four, or, a large dollop of just one! Treats all round. Turning first to Love. This might come in three flavours. The first will be pure and simple. An innocent, even “chaste” experience. Perhaps a “first-love” always to be remembered but never surpassed. The second variety might be pure romance: refined, elegant, tasteful and — best of all — eternal. And finally the third kind: illicit. Characterized and possibly initiated via social media. Choreographed in secretive phone calls and consummated in secluded locations. “You pay your money and make your choice!” Isn't that the old saying?
The “myth, mystery and magic” element might dove-tail the one into the other. If so motivated — a minuscule minority — might deliberately choose to halt at a fork in the road of Life. Two choices will present themselves. One path leads to the Left. One path leads to the Right. An unadulterated miasma of negative emotions and experiences lay ahead of the foolish explorer who makes the wrong choice. Conversely, an invitation to walk with the gods is offered to the pure-hearted explorer who gets it right. Dare you dare to dare? Is it worth taking the risk? Remember: the road to Hell is paved with good intentions.
However, there is a third option. A safe alternative. Chose to travel safe highways, well travelled and clearly sign posted. Look for a reputable Teacher, Guru or Guide both to monitor your progress and keep you on the safe-and-narrow. Steep yourself in New Age Wisdom: listen to the wisdom of the Universe; lift the veil safely. It can be done, and now might be the time to do it.
Well friends, it's time for me to take my leave of you until next time. Keep yourselves safe and remember: hands, face, space and be careful who you embrace.
