Since last fall, you’ve been grappling with how to balance your relationships and your personal needs. There’s always going to be a secret, tender part of you that needs extra care, and you come to terms with that as Jupiter makes his last square to Pluto on the 4th. The Aquarius lunar eclipse on the 7th drives the point home by helping you set boundaries that allow you to detach and tune into yourself. No phone in bed? Probably a good habit to start. Mercury retrograde in your communication zone from the 12th could make it tricky to implement, but stick with it.

The massive Leo solar eclipse lights up your value sector, hitting refresh on both your net-worth and your self-worth. A huge financial opportunity could present itself, or you could finally give yourself the credit you deserve. Jupiter plays well with Saturn on the 27th, helping you shore up the down-and-dirty details of any new revenue streams (or ego boosts). Mercury retrograde into Leo on the 31st shows you areas of the plan that could use some tweaking, but after that, you’re golden. Shine on, Cancer!
