Welcome to July, Cancer! We’re in the midst of your birthday season, which means formidable birthday sex is on the horizon. But this will only take place if you trust yourself and those you seek to merge with. The Solar Eclipse New Moon in your sign takes place July 2, and then Venus, the Planet of Love enters your sign July 3. To have the Sun, Moon, and Venus in your sector of self as the month begins means that you’re the universal favorite. You’ll receive plenty of attention from current or potential suitors, but the question you should ask yourself is, “who do I really want, and why?”
Once you’ve taken the time to think about this around the time of the Solar Eclipse in your sign, you will notice that the Universe aligns with your vibration, and you could manifest a soul-stirring sexual connection with someone during the first week of the month. I’m talking about the type of orgasmic sex that can leave you in tears due to how amazing it was. Realize that the magic is self-created. Your energy is what attracts this sexual ecstasy.
Mercury retrograde begins the 7th, and it’s taking place in your security and abundance sector. That means that although your Solar Eclipse New Moon helped activate a new version of yourself that people are powerfully drawn to, Mercury retrograde’s energy may stir up some lingering insecurities around sex, intimacy, and how much you trust your lovers or potential partners. Instead of expecting others to read your mind, Cancer, use this three week retrograde to think back on moments when you could’ve had amazing sex or explored romantically, but you let your fear of rejection or fear of vulnerability hold you back from the pleasure you deserved. If you do the work during this retrograde season, you’ll be able to nip self-sabotaging ways in the bud and therefore make room for consistent sexual experiences that are aligned with who you are and what you seek.
Once the Sun shifts out of your sign and into Leo on the 22nd, you’ll find yourself in a more bold and flirtatious mood, especially after the transformative two eclipses that took place this month. It’s a good time to be wilder and more animalistic in bed. You won’t be in the mood to just spoon or cuddle, you’ll want to role-play, use new sex toys, watch erotic films and try out new positions. Your sex drive will be enhanced with Mars also in Leo, and once Venus shifts out of Leo on the 27th you will really come out of your shell sexually and emotionally. It’s time to claim your divine sexual energy. Take tantra classes, read or write erotic novels, touch yourself, give yourself or your lover(s) a sensual massage… Treat yourself and your lover(s) like royalty.
The Capricorn Full Moon Lunar Eclipse would have taken place on the 16th of the month, and you will feel its effects all month long because it’s taking place in your partnership sector and you are ruled by the Moon. As much as you can be a compassionate, caring, deeply loving being, you also have an aspect of you that can be emotionally and sexually manipulative. The Capricorn eclipse will show you ways to be honest with yourself and your partner(s) about times when you tried to control the sexual or romantic situation by using your intuitive understanding of them against them… Major healing awaits once you take the time to correct your wrongs and when you’re honest with those you’re sexually or romantically engaged with. A heart-to-heart is likely to occur around the end of the month, once Mercury goes direct, and it will leave you feeling much more seen, which will then manifest as you opening up more in bed and in love. All’s well that ends well…
