The BIG NEWS today is the Sun in Cancer opposes Saturn in Capricorn at 9:28 AM EDT along with two (2) aspects to the Moon. Keep in mind that by the time the two (2) lunar aspects are exact, the Moon will then be in Capricorn.
The Sun in Cancer opposing Saturn in Capricorn is a very emotional aspect simply because the Sun is in Cancer, which is THE MOST emotional, moody and sensitive Sun Sign. Twist this energy like a pretzel into intuition because the Cancer motto is, "I feel therefore I am." It's about intuition, not about being moody and emotional. Cancer really takes things personal. So you can imagine how much a South Node in Cancer would take things personal. The South Node is a bottomless pit that is never-ending, so someone with a South Node in Cancer would feel this pit very strongly during this Sun in Cancer time period, which means up until July 22nd when the Sun will then move into Leo. I always reference the South Node in Cancer this time of year simpy because it is super-rough South Node to have in the natal chart because it is so emotional, which would mean this is the time of year when it feels the worst. Remember, when the Sun enters the month of your South Node (like mine would be Pisces because my South Node is Pisces) then that is the time to go on vacation and lighten your load, not add more to your plate. When we go through our South Node month, it makes for a very rough 30 or 31 days. For all of us, during the month of Cancer, something may not be about you at all, but yet that's the way you take things, and that would be not even having a South Node in Cancer, much less having it in your chart. The Cancer Sun or the South Node Cancer may make you think and believe that it is others who takes things too personal, but gosh folks . . it's just not. Cancer energy is also the martyr of the zodiac, so you will really need to watch this energy closely wherever it impacts your chart.
This Sun in Cancer opposing Saturn in Capricorn is a very sobering and hard wake up call. This aspect shows up just in time to sober up our emotions and gets us to wake up and smell the coffee. It is a humbling hard thump on the forehead that can and will bring you to your knees in order to get you to straighten up. So here's the deal, you can count on this aspect occurring once a year because the Sun in a certain sign will ALWAYS oppose Saturn at some point during the year. While Saturn is in Capricorn, it will oppose the Sun in Cancer in the summer of 2018, 2019 and 2020, then after that the opposition will be between the Sun in Leo and Saturn in Aquarius. Every single year, you will feel like, "Damn it, everytime I start to _____________, something happens!"
I am a Gemini and rarely over-think anything, especially Astrology. Why baffle my brain with BS and waste my time? I just cut to the chase. As a Gemini, I believe everything is 'easy' and nothing is hard, it is only over-thinking that makes things hard. We Gemini's are 'simple thinkers' and 'simple talkers', meaning don't really use gigantic fifty dollar words. So here's how I see this . . if this is the first of three Sun opposing Saturn transits between over-emotional Cancer and sobering, pick yourself up by the bootstraps Capricorn (2018, 2019, 2020), then why not get, the get, RIGHT NOW? If you find yourself saying, "Damn it, everytime I start to _____________, something happens!" then for Heaven's sake, get the get, meaning get the understanding of what you keep doing. No one is doing anything to you, unless you let them. And nothing 'is not' happening to you, unless you are literally doing nothing to move things along. Read that sentence again. So if you feel nothing is happening, then nothing will continue to happen if you are doing nothing to help things along. Saturn does not care about your damn feelings. Get off the couch and make things happen! Show up for work on time! Do your homework! Clean your room! Change the oil in your car! Clean up after yourself! Remember, Cancer is the sign that takes things personal and this is something you should take personal instead of blame others. Clearly if something keeps happening to you everytime you do THIS OR THAT, then stop doing THIS OR THAT and do something different. This is kind of a no-brainer.
I know, you feel like outside forces are keeping you from succeeding. It could be in that you are on the wrong path or headed in the wrong direction. How about that? If you are on the edge of losing your patience or confidence, then this aspect will strip you of that last bit of patience and confidence you have until you are brought to your knees and either repent, admit, get up, go, do, perform, wake up or just shut up! This aspect is not going to feel sorry for you, so I would just stop that banter and performance right now. Saturn tells the emotional Sun, "Stop crying and pick yourself up!" Honestly speaking, I don't think this aspect shows up in a chart just to give someone a hard time. I believe this aspect shows up because we need our ego or personality checked. WHAP! Like a big ol' thump on the forehead from the Universe. Sometimes some people will get hit harder by this aspect simply because they need to. Enough! And then there are those who will experience this aspect in their Natal Chart because it is THAT important that they remain humble and checked throughout their entire Life simply because if they are given an inch, they will take a mile.
There is an identity crisis associated with this aspect because the Sun rules the identity and how we 'appear' to others, both in personality and physical appearance. The identity crisis could be something as simple as, "I'm a wife/husband, mother/father, but I have no idea who the hell I am or what the hell I am supposed to do with this Life!" This aspect can be incredibly frustrating wherein there is a constant question over your head wondering if you are doing the right thing or if you are on the right path.
Saturn is restricting your Sun from shining. There has to be a reason for that. Maybe you aren't supposed to shine in an ugly way! Saturn is a dark, pessimistic and skeptical planet, so you may feel as though you have a dark cloud overhead. This aspect will likely not receive approval from where you seek it. Look under another rock because it's not under that one or that one or that one or that one. This aspect will humble you to the point where you will finally have to drop the big ego. Since the Sun is masculine (testosterone energy) and Saturn is the father or authority figure energy, I wouldn't expect a pat on the back or a huge show of "got nothin' but Love for ya honey" during this opposition. You can forget that!
This aspect can also cause big problems with men, the boss, the manager, or an authority figure, namely the father, since Saturn is planet of the father and both planets have testosterone and father-energy associated with them.
