Hello Cancer! Expect financial affairs to remain muddled until around the 10th of September, as Mercury’s retrograde energy continues to saturate this area of your world! He turns direct on the 5th, so this first ten days of the month is all about ironing out those knots and resolving issues around your salary, bank or expected income. Delays and confusion are of course retrograde Mercury’s hallmark, but Mercury’s brief liaison with Mars between the 1st and 5th also suggests that you will be fighting for your rights over money which is rightfully yours but which you have not yet received. This is an issue which may have originally arisen towards the end of July. Keep battling, you will be vindicated as we reach mid-month. Mercury’s trine with Uranus until the 9th could also take you back to a unique money-making idea which you thought of in late July. You will have the opportunity now to finally make up your mind about whether this is viable.
The full Moon of the 6th encourages you to concentrate for a while on spiritual fulfilment and on the lessons that you know you need to learn in this lifetime. The world and all its pettiness may send you off track at this time, and it’s important to reignite your passion for new experiences, faces and places. Spending time on your intuitive development will help you. A course of study or link with a different country or culture may come to an end for you now; you probably didn’t even realise at the time the huge impact this experience was having on your outlook and ambitions. The Moon cycle begins again on the 20th with a new Moon in your house of communication; after your brief period of reflection it will be time to tackle other people’s problems again. This new Moon opposes Chiron and squares Saturn and Lilith, therefore fresh starts here will not be without sacrifice. Information about a neighbour, sibling or work colleague will come to light which may trouble or shock you.
Jupiter is busy permeating your domestic life with positive energy in September; now he is picking up speed again in this area, you will find it easier to appreciate what you have. His long-standing square with passionate Pluto is beginning to fade as the month presses on, so partners will also be less controlling in the home, as you find yourself dealing better with their manipulative behaviour and mood swings. A sextile with Saturn throughout the month will also support you in caring for family members who are sick or having financial problems. Just watch for Jupiter and Uranus opposing one another until early October; this is a difficult aspect which generates an unavoidable need for freedom from domestic duties. It will be easy to bypass your responsibilities to loved ones now, particularly those which already feel onerous, and it’s important to keep a sense of duty in mind.
Now that Lilith and Saturn are conjunct in your house of work and health, your desire for honesty and authenticity in working life will be strong; you won’t gel with those who pretend to be something they’re not, you need people around you who will do exactly what they say and get on with the job. Conflict from the Sun from the 10th to 21st may lead to some health issues, most notably connected with your skin, bones, teeth or hormones. Chronic conditions or ongoing health weaknesses could also be exacerbated now. Take care of yourself and conserve your energy in the best way you can. Have a wonderful month!
