Happy Birthday Cancers.

A Cancer is a water sign. They have a deep feeling of nature and a great need for home and family. Cancers love to be loved and so are always looking for mother’s love. They are sensitive and emotional by nature. They have a great need to care for people and animals.

A Cancer is easily aroused emotionally, spiritually and certainly physically. They react emotionally almost instantly to all situations, but can be counted on to take command if needed.

Known as the “moon child,” a Cancer and his/her emotions are like the waves – constantly changing.

Because of their sensitive nature, Cancers can be counted on to react emotionally to any kind of hurt. They are one sign in the Zodiac that needs tender, loving care.


People born this week: Great Britain’s Prince William, June 21, 1982; Erin Brockovich, June 22, 1960; Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, June 23, 1948; Mick Fleetwood of Fleetwood Mac, June 24, 1947; Carly Simon, June 25, 1945; Chris O’Donnell, June 26, 1970; Jo Frost of “Supernanny,” June 27, 1970; and John Elway, June 28, 1960.


The sun moves into Cancer on June 21, and since the full moon is just days away on Sunday, June 23, we are in for an emotional time until and including Monday, June 24. So expect some tears to fall and some moods to hit, but by the middle of next week life will calm down. Mercury goes retrograde at 9:06 a.m. on Wednesday and will stay retro until the afternoon of July 20.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) With Uranus – the planet of change – moving through Aries, you must be thinking change. But with the full moon on Sunday, plus Mercury retrograde on Wednesday, this is no time to make any change. Slow down and continue the planning. Then success will look you in the eye.

Winding Down the Week at the Winery

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Even you can get caught up in the emotions of the full moon on Sunday, so slow down. A quick introduction could bring a new adventure into your life. So don’t ignore any new faces in your circle of pals. You could have a surprise on your hands that will make you smile.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) This is an emotional time for you. Avoid getting caught up in the nonsense that often happens when life gets too busy. Schedule your new adventure before next Wednesday – that is good planning. Otherwise, let things slide and you will have a high time and make more sense and money.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) You should be winning over a few former critics. All you need to do is continue to smile when you become too sensitive instead of shedding a tear. It is full moon time and you need to watch your reaction to challenging situations. Once you do that, you win.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) The next project on your agenda should include a prize at the end of the tunnel. Just try and keep in mind that the more planning you do early, the less you need to do at the end. And since it smells of success, the deadline should be mid-July. That gives you plenty of time to finish.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) This is a time to check your impulsive nature by using self-control. You might think you are missing a golden opportunity, but that isn’t the case. You need just a little more time for review. Slow your latest projects down and wait until mid-July. It will still be a great adventure.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) There may be rumors surrounding your latest project, but try and ignore them and move forward. The more mature you can be in handling your latest upset, the better you and your pals will feel. Remember, success is in your future. That is why you are making a few adjustments.

Educating the World One Child At A Time

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) This could be one of the best times of your life – if you only slow down and count your blessings. A new venture handled properly could pay off extremely well. Just avoid signing papers or starting any projects until mid-July. A new pal could really help you out with some work.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Taking a slow and easy approach to your next adventure is the way to go. You are used to making fast decisions, but slow down. It may be time to realize you rigidly project yourself into the future instead of letting nature take its course. Try a new way. You will love it.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Duty and responsibility are high on your priority list and this could be a week to try for more of both. Avoid people who make foolish demands on your time because that interferes with your schedule. Keep making tracks toward a new relationship.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) It would be wise on your part to ignore any new, controversial people. The main reason would be that you tend to get caught up in other people’s problems and forget your own. You need to review your own goals. So settle down and think about a new direction.

Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) If you are feeling a need to change your expectations toward various people, do it but try to go slowly. Also, as you make changes include your creative life because it should be more and more rewarding. Share your talents. Friends really appreciate it.
