There can be some power struggles in the relationship sphere, although I think power struggles is quite a strong word as it's just that one or the other of you may be a little bit more bossy or overbearing. There are issues with personality clashes, particularly if you are both cardinal signs or have strong personalities, however this can be less pronounced if your partner's a slightly more passive, easy-going star sign, in this case you make perceive them as more stubborn and distracted rather than argumentative.
Because Mercury is retrograde this month, you have to be careful in love particularly, as you can give mixed messages. It's very important to focus on what you are saying because sometimes you become quite verbose and you may over share, or be a little bit indiscrete in terms of revealing too much about yourself. However, you may go to the other extreme, and be so closed and secretive that a new relationship doesn't have much chance of getting onto the right track.
So the key in romance this month, is to take it slowly, to try and enjoy it and not become so emotionally involved that you get yourself into a state where are a little bit paranoid, and almost looking for the worst in a new person.
This is definitely a time to be very careful in all your financial dealings, it's best to keep dealing with people you trust and have long established relationships with. This is certainly not a good time to start dealing with a new institution or group of people, particularly where you are far less powerful than them, less informed or have less access to relevant data. So when you go into a new contract, be very cognizant of the power balance and don't enter contracts or take loans where you feel you will have a disadvantage.
You will certainly make an impression on people, but just be careful not to go too far, remember to respect that everyone is on a journey and their journey happens at a different pace to yours, so don't put pressure on anyone to either adapt or learn as quickly as you. Just because someone has reservations, doesn't mean they are against your ideas, it may just take them a little bit longer to come around to your way of thinking. So learn to be more sympathetic of where people are at, and to work with that rather than trying to speed off and leave them behind.
The Mercury retrograde affects your subconscious mind. You may have great difficulty making decisions, you could be plagued by self-doubt. Like the previous retrograde in January, this one also inclines you to be secretive, evasive and in search of solitude. You have a need for introspection during these periods and you are very good at procrastination and avoidance too.
You may be tired and you need rest and lots of water as you are probably run down and needs a little battery recharge.
The New Moon is on the 30th of April and extends until the 16th of May, so this is an excellent time for your New Moon rituals and your initiation of new projects. As the New Moon is in Taurus, your 11th solar house, this is a great time for getting inspired, reconnecting with friends, exploring socially and networking.
This is a wonderful time for getting excited about your life again abs thinking expansively about what's possible and what would add adventure.
It's a good time for group orientated or political goals, you may be inspired to work for a cause.
The activation of Uranus can make you very restless and so don't take on obligations or make promises as you won't want to keep them as your desires or priorities change quickly.
You may be attracted to bohemian or highly eccentric people right now, this is quite interesting for you, but keep your head about you as you may not quite understand the new crowd you are moving within.
June 22 - July 22
"They call me emotional and sensitive. Being Intuitive and sentimental are my traits. As a Cancer, I’m a real caretaker. Friends and family are life to me! I am sympathetic, I will keep you close to me. Here I am, extremely loyal, highly imaginative and persuasive."
Sensitive (but often “crabby“), imaginatively creative and artistically gifted (but often obsessed with the minutiae of home and the past), Cancerians are among the most challenging of the zodiac children to get to know. Like the crab that symbolizes their sign, they often present a hard, crusty, even impenetrable exterior to the world, and can appear Withdrawn, cool, and reserved. Beneath the shell, however, lies an emotional and sensitive soul with great reserves of compassion and intuition. Like the crab, Cancerians are also tenacious and protective of their home turf and make for fiercely protective and loyal parents and friends.
