Sun moves into Cancer

Familiarity and security seem more important than meeting new people or exploring new places or ideas. Your impulse now is to strengthen bonds with your partner, family and close friends.

The past may have a strong pull now, and you could find yourself lost in nostalgia, flipping through photo albums or grandma’s old memorabilia. You might also be drawn to reconnect with people from your past, or to revisit your old haunts. Traditions are more attractive now, and you could even have a tendency to be a bit old-fashioned.

You have an increased desire for security and safety, and are likely to hold onto what you’ve got, rather than over-spending. This is a good time for shoring up your resources and strengthening your base of support. Your business instincts are sound, especially when it comes to planning for the future. Just watch out for clinging too tenaciously to something that seems to bring security, but is actually holding you back.

Your emotional life wants more attention during this time, and your feelings might change like the tides — laughing one minute and crying the next. You may also be more sensitive than usual, and could be more likely to take things personally. Being overly prickly is a sign that you need more nurturing self-care, and perhaps more time to retreat into your shell.
