(April 19–May 20)
Ruling planet Venus enters traditional, family-oriented Cancer on July 3, focusing your energy on home matters. Mars squares your sun, and Uranus makes for power struggles when immovable object meets irresistible force July 10-11. A surprising intervention seemingly out of nowhere on July 24 at the Last Quarter Moon in Taurus drops like a Deux Ex Machina from the rafters, offering a way out of the corner you may have painted yourself into. The way out is a learning curve straight up: It will take tremendous sustained effort, but achievement of this kind never comes without a huge energetic expenditure.
