CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Your astrological sign (or rising sign) is one ideally suited for the art and craft of writing. Though I've never seen this in a book, it's obvious from study of your solar chart, which emphasizes the sign Virgo right where it's needed most, the 3rd house of communications. Virgo has been bristling for many weeks, and it's especially strong now, with Mercury retrograde wrapping up, with the Sun present, and with Venus and Mars approaching. In recent history, computer programmers emerged as the most powerful people. In the world that's rising, people who can write coherently, with accuracy, and with a touch of elegance will possess a skill that's on the level of alchemy. It doesn't matter if you don't consider yourself a professional writer; devote yourself to learning how to express yourself in written language, and to do so well. This can only come with daily practice. This would include writing letters, e-mails, and stories where you reread, revise, and proofread three to five times. What we call writing is 90 percent thinking; and most of the time, that happens in the revision process. This is something entirely different from our dominant world of tweets and social posts, which are like popcorn compared to the nourishing, potent effects of crafted sentences, paragraphs, and essays. The harder this is for you, the more you need to do it.
