Cancer: The Crab
Cancer: The Crab
Cancer, this New Moon in Sagittarius is actually helpful for you. You may have a flash of insight that helps you sort out a problem with your schedule. It does look to me that you’ve got too many irons in the fire. If you can’t help that, it’s understandable, but this moon is asking you to take control of what you can. You may have to soon speak up for yourself and it could be in a long overdue talk with your employer. This isn’t the best day for a heated discussion so perhaps postpone this talk a couple of days unless the situation presents itself as inevitable.
Keep in mind that your need to get some more rest because it’s very likely you’re not sleeping well or enough. Maybe there are a lot of ideas rolling around in your mind but I get the feeling you’re fixated on one troublesome issue that just doesn’t seem to resolve itself.
There’s a saying I like, Cancer, and it goes something like this, ‘You can’t keep doing the same thing and expect a different result.’ It basically means that if what you’re doing isn’t working, then do something different.
Contemplate: There’s only so much debris you can sweep under the rug before even you trip on it.
Caveat: You should focus on working out that one troublesome area in your life, that one problem, the one thing that haunts you most. You’re not going to move forward the right way unless you do. There’s no sense in moving forward if it means you’re going to take two steps back to correct this issue once and for all.
ASTRO-MINDER™ Thursday, July 3, 2014: If you feel like things are picking up speed it’s because they are. Mercury is direct and gaining momentum. Most of you will notice there are suddenly several irons in the fire and they look a whole lot like the irons from the end of May; that’s because they are. This is a good thing, trust me! You do trust me, don’t you? C’mon. I’d never hurt you. I LOVE you too much!
This is the third and last time you’ll have to go over these same wrinkles to iron them out for good! So be sure to do what you have to do, get it right this time, use some spray starch if you have to, but get things smoothed out as best as you can. We’ve talked about the sense of discomfort that we will feel around the 4th. If tomorrow, July 4th celebrations, in the USA aren’t really appealing to you because you’re feeling kind of “off”, then mind your instincts and just stay at home.
If you have pets, of course, protect their sensitive ears from fireworks and be sure they are secured so they don’t bolt out of your yard and into a road or street. My pretty chocolate labrador went missing one year for many hours and I thought I would never see her again. Monty, my 20-year-old, thought to, um, water a tree with his scent so the dog could smell him and her way home if she’d become lost or was disoriented. It sure did work: Truffle showed up exhausted and a bit worse for the wear, and now I never cease marveling at the power of pee!
Be safe, my friends. Don’t drink or do drugs and then drive ANYTHING because you could kill someone or a few people and you’ll likely live to see the rest of your life in prison. That’s if you don’t end up in a vegetative state the rest of your life. Think on that.
God bless you all! Happy 4th!

As hopeful as you’ve been lately, dear Cancer, you seem to be running out of hope-steam. What’s wrong, little crab? Feeling down, depleted, somewhat defeated, as if what you wish for will never come true, will never happen, that you’re just down in the dumps?
Welcome to the real world, Cancer, it’s not clinical depression.
What you’re feeling is just the transient sadness of the stress of trying hard for so long that you don’t know where to pull anymore hope from. But what if I tell you that this very mood you’re in is not going to help you, it’s going to make matters worse? People can pick up on others energy much like a dog can sense when another animal is weak or fearful and that sense causes the first dog to act accordingly. You need to understand that delays, obstacles, and even lack of progress is a natural consequence of being in the world. You are not interacting with only yourself, Cancer, you are interacting in a world of people and sometimes that means others are going through the very same thing. Likewise, you are very sensitive, your ruling planet is the Moon, and that means your are more sensitive and emotional than usual, more irritable and demanding during the Full Moon phase. The Full Moon was only yesterday, dear Cancer, and it also has a typical effect for about four days before and four days after. What that means for you is that even the usual ups and downs of cycles are more intensely felt and emoted by you during the Full Moon. Give yourself a break, Cancer, and understand this about yourself: your moods are your own but they can also be self-defeating, so take it easy on yourself and don’t read too much into what the next person is feeling or you won’t be able to feel your own feelings at all — you’ll be all mucked up in an emotional state that is already difficult for you to understand.
What’s happening now is not only cyclical, it’s expected. We want what we want and we want it now is what some children say during tantrum but you are not a child and you are fully capable of understanding that delays just happen. It does not mean that what you want isn’t going to happen, that it never will, that it’s all going wrong, that no one understands you, that WOE IS ME, woe is me, my life is a mess and I just want to give up, and…everyone’s out to get me! And I’m trying my best but it’s just never good ENOUGH and…and…
Do you see what a downer I just wrote? Do you see how completely pointless it is to just sit there mired in your unhappiness? That’s what you’re doing. Stop doing that!
What you need, the next break, is just around the corner! But if you sit there lamenting and telling the next person that you’re not, you’re going to miss your mark. So settle down, sweet, sensitive Cancer, it’s not as bad as you think it is but if you keep thinking the walls of Jericho are going to tumble down, they certainly will.
Contemplate: Your next break is on the way and around the corner, Cancer, but you lose control of your emotions, lose control of your positive energy, you’re going to miss that break and it will be harder, next time, to catch again. Chin up, dry it up, think logically, not emotionally.

The center of yourself is the Spirit and it resides in you, Cancer friend. I’ve written extensively to my Cancer friends to urge them to continue their spiritual journey and even advising that it is begun and it cannot be stopped now — but this is a GOOD thing as for too long you have lived without spiritual center or at least not a good one. Your thinking must need be expanded and continually explored as there is much beyond you that is outside you, urging you to take this in and learn from it. Spiritual alignment means first, I feel, living the right way, avoiding the wrong and bad, doing good, and employing integrity: that is not easy for many people who live in “the world”. Rise above it and release resentment and anger even though you may feel you’ve none — you do. It’s not going to help you now but you will benefit from not falling into apathy again lest you are taking advantage of and tossed into old patterns and lessons. Someone close to you is unsettled and rightly so: you cannot define why they are or what it is but the best course of action is to not ignore things too long. Your usual way is to side step these kinds of things and I urge you to look into your past to see where this has led you — and don’t go there again. Keep your sensitivity and moodiness out of it and if you detect a problem try to ask questions. Don’t make matters worse with ambivalence: you will send the signal that you just don’t care or come across as selfish. The Spirit will help you with this but only if you work with it. This is not to say it forebodes and easy discussion but it’s certainly not going to solve itself. It’s a long standing issue that will not get anything but worse if you take your usual path and step to the side in hopes to avert confrontation. Go head, Cancer, go forward — not sideways — and try to ease things with communication and perhaps even an apology. Finances are highlighted so proceed with caution if there is any chance the next person has questions for you.
Contemplate: Though it’s not comfortable for you to be direct, you’re going to have to learn to listen to the Spirit to know what words to say. Avoidance is not going to help you so do please avoid side stepping issues that aren’t going to go away on their own.
