Relationships are a front burner issue in July with the Sun in your 7th House of Partners until July 22. While this transit lights up this alluring part of your chart, it can also complicate ongoing alliances. That's because Cancer is a soulful and sensitive sign that can kick up powerful feelings, especially when insecurity is in the air. But this can also pull someone into your emotional orbit, which is fine if you're looking for a new person in your life.
While attending to the needs of another is certainly recommended, and sweetly romantic, don't forget about your own needs. Being strong is standard operating procedure for you, but showing your vulnerability -- without being too weepy about it -- is an asset for attaining intimacy.
Your ruling planet Saturn turns direct on July 7, which begins a slow process of taking plans that have been percolating in your brain and to put them into practice. Just be flexible because the Cancer New Moon on the following day not only lights up your 7th house, but also is triggered by transformative Uranus and Pluto. These aspects could spur power struggles and arouse suspicious feelings or provoke sudden shifts of mood and circumstances. The benefit of this lunation, though, is to eliminate people, attitudes, and expectations that are outmoded and to make radical breakthroughs or instant connections that add excitement to partnerships.
The Sun's entry into creative Leo and your 8th House of Deep Sharing on July 22 begins a time to be courageous and generous in alliances that matter, learning to give more of yourself in the service of love.
