The Sun, Mercury and Mars appear in your house of partners, spotlighting key persons, intimate relationships and your ability to consider others, working in harmony, one-on-one.

Negotiations might seem prominent; however, the Cancer Moon can prompt you to retreat into your shell (we all have one!) into a safe space or assuring surroundings. You could feel ready to recalibrate your emotions, tending to household, family matters or self-care and nurturing – hidden facets of your world.

You might be looking to connect to someone that feels like a port in a storm (a motherly, sensitive type who knows how deeply you feel sometimes).

One partnership might not be what you need, and that’s ok! Hone in on home or emotions coming to the surface.


There may be the inclination to focus on the job you do, your daily rituals and routines, with the Sun, Mercury and Mars encouraging you to bring about order and a sense of organization. Spotlight your employment, show awareness of duties and systems, appointments and your optimum wellness.

However, the Last Quarter Moon encourages you to connect, in your house of contact, communication skills and curiosity. You might sense you’re well placed to touch base with news or information, your neighborhood environment or those in it.

Set to work, toil and drive ahead with your lifestyle, regime or look toward the position you want to uphold, and be among close-knit ties, able to navigate using the right tools and language.


The Sun, Mercury and Mars appear in your house of passion and joy, spotlighting all that brings happiness your way! Personal gratification and pleasing yourself could be important, from creative plans to your playful, flirty side. Enthusiasm may be apparent for a hobby, vacation or romantic interest!

Yet note the Last Quarter Moon brings a security conscious tone, or even awareness of sustenance and self-sufficiency. Reflect on your earnings and what you do to contribute, ways you input something worthwhile or find comfort in material possessions or your purpose.

Note how you feel about what you do to make a living, as well as following your heart and what you love (including the possibility of making a baby, or spending time with your kids or on solo pursuits, personal projects and entertainment).


The Last Quarter Moon in your sign touches your first house of presence, character and self. You could feel sensitive to your look, body or personal plans, standing in your authenticity and sensing what you need.

Grant your own wishes, fill from your own cup, nourishing and replenishing as only you know how!

The Sun, Mercury and Mars at the base of your chart can prompt you to nest, tend to your foundations and security issues. You could be engaged with home life, family or familiar spaces, your domestic life, safety and places you might recalibrate.

Illuminate what you’re feeling, allowing your physicality (and your appearance or identity) space, as well as curating your surroundings, a way to set down roots, or explore where you’re from.

Your private life, lineage, parents and household matters could be key!


Your ruler, the Sun appears in your socially connected house of siblings, skills and kindred spirits. Spotlight people around you or your environment, making friends, communicating and catching the word on the street!

Writing, teaching and local ties may be significant, or gathering to talk and meet-up on a hot topic.

Meanwhile the Last Quarter Moon touches your quiet, secluded sector of isolation, so you may also want to draw inwards. You could feel the need to tend to others or comfort the tender parts of yourself that require a hug; soothe all ills! Retreat and be charitable!

Welcome a solitary spell, rest and recoup, while also realising your role as informant, conversationalist and neighbour.


There may be the inclination to strategize financially, looking at your role, with planets in your sector of financial stability, worth and value. Spotlight your resources, assets and attributes – all you have and all you do that’s rewarding. Prove you’ve a resourceful side, or consider what you can bring to the table and a union.
