Of all the signs you’ve been through the most these last few months, and that’s precisely why August is likely to feel like such a gorgeous, welcome relief. Eclipse season and Mercury Retrograde in your stars knocked the wind (and everything else) out of you, and now that we’re a few weeks out from the end of both, you’re able to get your bearings again. With the Sun in your money zone for the first three weeks of the month, you can focus on what you love most: creating financial security for yourself and the people you love.

August opens with a powerful Full Moon on the 3rd, one that’s meant for embracing intimacy in every possible way, from the ribald and carnal to the raw and emotional. Don’t hide this one out in your shell, Cancer – open yourself up to vulnerability and you will be rewarded. On the 18th, the New Moon offers an opportunity to set intentions for your next six months of major moneymaking. If the pandemic has messed with your next egg, this enables you to create a precise strategy to increase your income between now and next winter, when life at large should begin to return anew. After the 22nd the Sun dives into your communication zone, making the next four weeks ideal for getting your message out into the world. If you’ve ever thought of trying a daily writing practice, this is the perfect moment to give it a go.

Your birthday season didn’t start on the best foot, Cancer, but the month of July should deliver some goodness to make up for June’s failings.

Thankfully, this way-too-active eclipse season ends after the 5th, when the Full Moon explodes in your relationship zone. This is the last such eclipse in this part of your chart after an intense two-year series. Those lessons have come hard and fast but now you are really seeing the contours of your well-earned wisdom in stark relief.

If the first six months of 2020 brought unwelcome developments in your partnerships, let it all go during and after this final eclipse. Mercury Retrograde ends in your stars on the 12th, bringing even more good news! Anything you were forced to put on pause since early to mid-June can now be re-started – albeit rather slowly at first.

And now for your real cosmic birthday gift: to make up for last month’s New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Cancer, the one that delivered perhaps just a bit too much intensity and drama for you bear, a second New Moon in Cancer comes on the 20th – a much sweeter and easier one. Set intentions for your next six months of stellar accomplishment, romance, creativity and all-around bliss right now, and write it all down for best results.

On the very same day the Sun shifts into Leo, where it loves to be, shining lovely light on your finances for the next four weeks.
