Cancer  (June 21st to July 21st)

Last week I talked about priming a pump. This week I like to fill-in a few important details, as they’re important for the celestial events going on with Venus. When you’re priming, it’s important to rest between pumps. If you get “obsessed” and lose yourself in the work, you might build up too much pressure and stanch the flow of what you’re pumping. This is something that could happen in real life more toward the weekend and parallels what’s happening when Venus teams up with Pluto. In fact, the more you push too hard, it might seem like the thing recedes away from you. So if you’ve been feeling pressed to get something right on the relationship front or at work, spread out your efforts during the week. Don’t think you need to do everything all at once.
