There are many positives to this week’s astro-scape, not least Mercury’s entry into your sign which will give you the power of speech. Cancerians tend to be defensive players for the zodiac team, leaving it to others to fall on their faces, but this also means you let the occasional golden opportunity slip through your fingers. If you know what you want and you believe in your plans, have the courage to step forward. There can be no growth without change – a cliché, I know, but it is nonetheless true – and it is much, much better when you initiate any changes. Divine aspects to Neptune will help you on your way, and if you are ready to make a statement from the heart, go do so.
