The Sun is in Cancer, the natural house of home and support for the “family,” as it progresses through the zodiac sign. The Sun will spend the first three days of the month in the constellation Punarvasu, bringing light into the darkness according to the famous astrologer in India. This is an excellent moment to act on your sentiments.
Due to Saturn in Capricorn heightening the tensions between working at home and being out in the world, the Sun in Cancer is affected for the first half of the transit this year. For Leos, it is a 12th house transit, indicating a desire for seclusion, meditation, and travel abroad. This year’s transit is solely impacted by Saturn’s opposition, depicted by the famous astrologer in India.
The Sun is in the Cancer gandanta (Cancer 27-30) in the constellation of Hyrda (Ashlesha, Cancer 16.40-29.59) near the conclusion of the transit, which is a region where the previous poisons are collecting in a huge knot that is difficult to untangle. Deep unconscious habits and tough difficulties emerge, which appear intimidating and full of regrets. Remember that you have the ability of free choice in the current moment to go forward into fresh light and are not bound by the shadows of your previous failures. Allow them to leave. They appear to be twisted and difficult to cope with, yet you are capable of overcoming them. So, these are difficult times for Leo rising so good to go on a meditation retreat and do the inner work as the outer ambitions may be frustrating. Travels to foreign countries may be complicated with eclipse energy.
If you are Cancer moon or Cancer rising in the Vedic system or have Cancer rising in the D9 chart or even if your Sun is in Cancer (born July 17-August 16th), you may relate to the material presented below but we all have some Cancer in our chart that impacts us.
Cancer rising struggles with the earth element and the material world and must learn to save money and labor in the real world. Cancer has difficulties expressing itself in the physical world, depending on other elements in the chart. A strong balance of well-placed planets in Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo, if present in the chart, can help to counterbalance this hidden fault. A well-placed Venus or Saturn, especially if they are well-aspected or in Taurus or Capricorn, might counteract this imbalance. Cancers have to actively focus on saving money, taking those success seminars, and getting out in the material world when they would rather just meditate and bathe in the wonders of the spiritual world. If the moon or the 1st house is afflicted.
The darker side of this sign can lead to moodiness, being sarcastic, impolite, critical, self-deprecation, mocking, and ridicule if it is afflicted by malefic like Rahu, Ketu, Mars, or Saturn, or if the Moon is poorly placed in the 6th, 8th, or 12th houses or afflicted by malefics or in troubling signs like Scorpio, Capricorn, Aquarius, or Gemini.
Cancer must avoid being overly engrossed in their thoughts, becoming too stiff, and becoming too set in their ways.
If you have planets in Cancer in your horoscope, or even in the D9 / Navamsha chart, they show what may be our closest friend and healer. So if Venus is in Cancer in D1 or D9, ladies will be a source of care and healing for you, but if Mars is in Cancer in D1 or D9, your or siblings will be a source of healing and care, and if Jupiter is in Cancer, your Guru, priest, or coach will be. The rising sign may not be as soft and gentle as the stereotype might envision as the constellation of Ashlesha (Cancer 16.20-30.00) can have a poisoned tongue and be prone to gossip and even the auspicious Pushya Nakshatra section (Cancer 3.20-16.40) can be prone to melancholy and depression and criticism with Saturn being the ruler.
Cancers struggle with clinginess, hoarding, hypersensitivity, moodiness, and choosing problematic friends and relationships. Gardening, construction and carpentry, and home-improvement hobbies might help them become more grounded. To re-balance its nurturing nature, increasing the fire element through vigorous and fiery cardiovascular activity is necessary to get the solar plexus enlivened and get the fire going while avoiding overeating and preoccupation with food, cooking, and cleaning, according to the famous astrologer in Kolkata.
Cancer rising may have blind spots to the following: Blind to how self-centered they can be of all the signs.
Their emotional needs are more important than anyone.
Blind to domestic smothering that can happen.
Blind to boundaries—what to let in and what not to let in.
Blind to passive-aggressiveness which may protect their own inner turmoil.
Clinging to family and security issues too much.
Blind to learning possessiveness—Cancers would rather lose a claw than let go of possessions. Learning not to hoard stuff, give to Goodwill regularly, and cleaning out clutter is very key.
