Mars charges into Cancer on Wednesday, June 24: Sudden outbursts of temper are likely, especially if sensuousness and luxury are denied. Indulge in pleasure and relaxation whenever possible. Any type of vacation or getaway is useful. This transit does increase the likelihood of damage or theft to the home, so be sure to take proper safety precautions to protect your dwelling. 

Cancer (June 21–July 22)

This should be a positive time in your life, when you work hard to further your own interests and assert yourself. You are likely to make a great impression on other people. However, if you are not sensitive to their needs, this may be a difficult time for your relationships. Every relationship requires bending to others' needs and demands, but you aren't especially inclined to do that now.

Leo (July 23–August 22)

This can be a difficult transit — a time of frustration and self-denial, when you do not seem to get credit for the work you do and always have to stay in the background. The only way for you to counter this effect is to become completely conscious of yourself and of any self-defeating acts.      

Virgo (August 23–September 22)

This is the time to formulate goals and actively pursue them. You look toward the future now, and you should work today for the sake of what you want to bring about tomorrow. Attain your goals by cooperating with others. Pursue the company of like-minded groups with whom you may collaborate.

 Libra (September 23–October 22)

This transit arouses your ambition to achieve. Find an independent project that requires your individual initiative and effort. Try to gain authority in your work at this time, because you are not very likely to be very tolerant of other people’s power over you.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21)

At this time, you may do more creative intellectual work than usual and attempt to convey your experience and view of the world to others. The beliefs and ideas that you consider true and important you will assert and defend wherever necessary. This will be valuable if you must influence other people and make an impression on them.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)

In a marriage or partnership, the two of you may disagree strongly on the management of jointly held resources — how to spend a limited amount of money, for example. It is also quite likely that the two of you will use your joint resources, particularly money, rather foolishly and wastefully. Be careful: This can lead to conflict.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19)

Close relationships often require so much compromise that the real complaints and grievances are never aired — in the long run, this may weaken even a fine relationship. Now is the time when these repressed grievances can be brought out into the open, which should result in a real clearing of the air between you.    

Aquarius (January 20–February 18)

Maneuver yourself into a position where you do not have to work with or for others any more than necessary. You will do best with projects that require your individual attention — now is not the time to be a team player. Try not to feel discouraged if you are not given credit for the work you have done; this situation will change soon and you will at last receive the recognition you deserve, so remain optimistic.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)

Above all else, this is a time when you will demand to be yourself and to express yourself. You will not be especially inclined to self-denial, discipline, or taking the backseat to anyone else. However, this is not a conflict-laden transit unless your assertive energies are totally denied by circumstances, or unless you choose not to express them.

Aries (March 21–April 19)

Your professional activities may be somewhat difficult at this time: Others may oppose your proposals and block your efforts. For this reason, it might be best to keep a low profile during this transit. It usually lasts only a couple of months, and is followed by a more favorable period.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

You put forth your ideas with considerable vigor at this time, which may provoke others. Even routine communications — letters, conversations — may take on a defiant tone, especially if you feel that others have the upper hand. As long as you don't give people the impression you're attacking them, you will impress them with the powerful way you convey your ideas.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

Be mindful of your spending. You may be inclined to act impulsively with money, and purchase items you do not really need in order to gratify your ego. Use what you already have to accomplish tasks. The things you own are not likely to sit around uselessly and gather dust during this transit if you are wise and use them to your advantage.
