Cancer Sun & Rising — Monthly Horoscope & Sign Description

Cancer Monthly Horoscope for June 2020


Cancer (June 21-July 22) — A profound solar eclipse takes place on the June 21 solstice, just as the Sun enters your sign. This is a point of reckoning for you: a before and after moment in the span of your whole life. Let’s consider the astrology in detail. Your sign is ruled by the Moon. The solstices are the Sun’s most powerful days of the year. The solar-lunar cycle connects right there, multiplying the effect.

It’s important to take eclipses not just as things that happen, but rather as opportunities to use consciously. The first degree of your sign is a point of alignment with existence. It’s also a point of self-creation. You are being presented with an occasion to both reinvent yourself and bring out a deeper quality of who you are, and allow it to enter the world.

Make your choices wisely at this time, though without hesitation. Decide everything on the basis of what you really want — the outcome, the personal reward, what you want to share, and the ability or talent you choose to master. Be bold, and announce your intentions with your actions rather than with words. Do the very thing you want to do, or need to do, and be the person you want to be — and keep going.

Eclipses of any kind are pattern-setting events, which is why actions speak louder than words. Later in the season, as Mars enters your 10th solar house Aries, the effect is redoubled. Mars joins Chiron in Aries on July 14, and the result will be something that can truly be called outstanding. Rest assured that you have grown into yourself enough to far exceed your accomplishments of the past.

Yet be aware at all times that cooperation is the essential ingredient to every success story. To this end, Saturn in Aquarius is your best friend. Ask for the help you need, offer what help you can, and build an organization. That’s the spirit of our moment.

Sign Description for Cancer

(June 21-July 22) — Nurturing, loving, devoted, cuddly, milky and self-centered, Cancer has it all. Your sign is not multifaceted; rather, you change like the tides, and are a little different every single day. Less polite people call you moody. What, not everyone has moods? Why do they all take things so personally? Or is it you who takes others so personally?


In any event, those born under your sign possess a certain desire for intimacy that is mingled with defensiveness about getting too close to others, and this can send a mixed message. It’s important that you have a sense of control in your relationships, but you don’t want to take that too far. You won’t respect weak people, so you may as well surround yourself with strong ones who respect your space and who feel at home in your home. It is sometimes said that the crab walks sideways, and your most important learning in this life is to be direct about what you feel and what you want, without feeling guilty about it. Your inclination is to experience your relationships in a structured way; you would have more fun if you would be more flexible. Remember that the people you love now are not as powerful as your mother was, so don’t treat them like they’re her.

Keep a Moon calendar on your desk and know the current phase and sign all the time. Cancer is one of the water signs, and is also a cardinal sign, being the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere and winter south of the equator. If you want to know more about yourself, study the position of the Moon in your chart, as well as what are called the lunar nodes. These will reveal the deeper elements of your nature, and more than any other sign, the Moon’s house, sign and aspects may reveal your most authentic nature.
