Your Horoscope for Cancer
Last month may have been hard for you to move forward with vigor because Mercury was retrograde starting on May 10. You likely found those projects to take forever to complete, too—much longer than they should have taken. In the background, you may have also had mechanical problems with your car, computer, software, an appliance, or other machines on the fritz, forcing you to call the repair department. Now life returns to normal when Mercury goes direct on June 3.
June will be an enormously important month for you to make a bigger name for yourself in your career. I would go further to say this is the most vital time for you to advance to a higher level within your specialty in over a decade. The reason for my sweeping statement is that Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, arrived in your tenth house of career honors, awards, achievement for the first time in 12 years on May 10, has settled in, and is now ready to beam opportunities to you in June. Jupiter will remain in this area of your chart until May 16, 2023.
Now Mars, the warrior planet, teaches us how to compete and win, how to be brave and determined, and how to be ready to beat rivals, and he will be right there with Jupiter. You could not wish for a better planet than Mars to be in your tenth house of professional advancement. Mars will give you an edge when you present your ideas. (Remember not to start your actions to elevate your career until after Mercury goes direct on June 3.) A beneficial planet like Jupiter usually needs another planet to signal that planet to unlock its goodies for you. Jupiter has come laden with opportunities but needs a second, friendly planet to help him unlock your treasure chest.
As it turns out, that second planet is the perfect one to unlock those goodies—Mars will be orbiting in the right position and perfect house in June. Mars rules your solar tenth house of prestigious professional progress and reward and has just entered that tenth house—the same one currently occupied by Jupiter. Mars moved into Aries, this critical house, on May 24 and is set to stay until July 5.
