Your Monthly Love Horoscope for the zodiac sign of Cancer reveals astrology insights for this month from a top astrologer. We also have horoscopes for all 12 Zodiac Signs
The most important thing to say about this month is that this isn’t June or July and that is everything. June and July have been the most challenging months of 2019, with last month’s solar eclipse in Cancer and lunar eclipse in your relationship sector the epicentre of a period of tension between the two. While you start the month with Mercury still in Cancer, as the planet of communication and having retrograded back in for a double dip visit, his focus is more on damage control and on working to ensure the communication lines are open. Mercury will turn direct in the early hours of the month, without retrograding back far enough to oppose either planet in your relationship sector. This makes all the difference, for Mercury was able to return after two months of planetary oppositions, without creating any more problems but able to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. By the time Mercury leaves Cancer on 12th August there will be no more planets there and therefore nothing to put pressure on the planets in your relationship sector. As Saturn and Pluto are spending their last full month in retrograde motion in your relationship sector, this is a valuable chance to regroup and reflect. Especially when it comes to appreciating what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. During the first half of the month, on the relationship front you might feel a bit shell shocked, with even the relationship gods wanting you to almost do nothing and focus more on simply reflecting and understanding the developments over the last two months. However, from 18th August something wondrous starts to happen. It begins with Mars’ return to your communication sector and continues with Venus, the planet of love’s return on 21st August, the Sun’s return on 23rd August, Juno the goddess of relationships’ return on 24th August and Mercury, the planet of communication’s return on 29th August. The same planets that put pressure on your relationships over the last two months return to support the rebuilding and it is all about communication.
