Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Being a cardinal sign, you have initiative and drive. So, you might grow impatient with the step-by-step path you must take to arrive at a desired destination. This month’s astrology carries you into the space between realms where the future is the past and the present. You have already set intentions into motion with your thoughts, feelings, and prayers.
