Cancer 22nd June - 22nd July
Venus only returned to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart 13 days ago, but she is already slowing to a crawl ahead of a retrograde turn. You can't blame the planet of love for not wanting to leave, for with Jupiter here for another seven weeks this is too big an opportunity to rush through. When you have the planets of love and luck working together to make matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative a priority, every day needs to be savoured.
The bad news is that as the Sun returns to your home and family sector today he will run smack into Chiron, in his last weekend in your career sector. Their opposition created the kind of work/life balance tension you normally face at some point during the Sun's month long visit, but not upfront. The good news is that there is nothing for this to stick to, with work/life balance almost resolving itself.
As Mercury, planet of communication spends his last full day in your communication sector he'll be working overtime to ensure that words fly. Whether it is via your fingers flying over the keyboard or words flowing out of your mouth, however you need to express yourself or whatever words you need to get off your chest, this is the day for doing it. However, not in a 'now or never' way. Mercury's aim is to leave the communication lines open in a way that you can easily maintain.
