The Planets this Week: June 25 - July 1, 2017
What do the planets have in store for us this week?
Summer has officially begun in the Northern Hemisphere (and Winter in the Southern Hemisphere). The Summer Solstice occurs around June 21 or so, when the Sun enters the Cardinal sign of Cancer.
The Summer Solstice coincides with the Sun moving into Cancer. Cancer is symbolized by the Crab, which makes a lot of sense when you take that sensitive, emotional nature into account. When things get tense, Cancer goes into self-protection mode, pulling into its shell until the trouble clears.
A Cardinal Water Sign, emotional Cancer is ruled by the Moon, which explains that ultra-sensitive moodiness. But Cancer isn’t all about protecting itself; not even close. This sign is the caretaker of the Zodiac, who will go to great lengths to keep its loved ones safe and supported. Cancers are nothing if not deeply connected with their families, and would do anything for their friends as well — even if it doesn’t always seem like it. Cancer can come across as a very introverted sign, but that doesn’t mean they don’t care. This sign can get so emotional that it doesn’t know how to express itself, and there’s that handy shell again, ready for Cancer to retreat to.
We also have a New Moon in Cancer and Mercury moved into Cancer so there’s a lot of watery energy during these hot summer weeks!
Mercury is very busy this week with its many aspects to other planets. The way you communicate has a lot to do with the planet Mercury, which is often called the planet of communication and also rules your thought processes, your logic (or lack thereof), your intellectual ideas and the way you get those ideas across to the world.
Tune in on Monday at 6p PT/9pm ET to find out more…
