Sun in Cancer
Thursday, June 21
For the next month, the Sun will be in the sign of Cancer. Your instincts to nurture and protect others will be heightened, but beware the overindulgence of taking care of others without practicing good self-care. As the Sun moves across this part of the sky it will make several aspects to planets, introducing some tension with long-term projects and organizations, and harmony with natural resources and community.
But first, on Saturday the Sun receives a sextile aspect from Uranus. This kicks off your month of nurturing with new resources or abilities that will change how you interact with others. This could mean the discovery of a new routine or remedy, or finding a new place to rest and recharge with friends or family.
