JULY 2009 ASTROLOGICAL OVERVIEW

July 2009 General Astrological Overview by Boots Hart

by Boots Hart, CAP

Cancer is one of four cardinal signs, "cardinal" referring to a mode of activity that occurs when any astrological body passes through the sign. Much like the phrase cardinal direction, the term implies knowing where we’re going and what the goal is. Or at least that’s what we’d like to think, right?

Every year, as the Cancer vibe becomes active, we feel the touch of our personal childhoods and sense the flow of humanity more vitally than at other times. Under Cancer we play in protected tide pools, we encounter stormy emotional waters, we draw from still wells of resilient wisdom, and encounter upwellings emanating from the depths of our entrenched past.

And yes, every once in a while we get swamped by an emotional tsunamis or just act crabby.
