Lions are eager to be on the move and find exciting things to do at the start. Up to the 20th, you will be perplexed over disappointing news. You may even feel low-spirited over love relationships, friendships, speculations or children's activities, but this will soon change.
On the 21st at the Solstice the Sun moves into emotional Cancer, your 12th solar house. Mercury also creeps into your 12th house on the 21st, so you will become slightly reclusive, and like to keep hidden from public view. It's not that you'll want to completely cut yourself off from everyone during the next four weeks, but there will definitely be occasions when you'll prefer your own company to that of other people. But don't give anyone the impression that you're feeling stand-offish or unfriendly. Recoup some of your mental, emotional and physical energy by recharging your batteries. Perhaps it's time to dust the bookshelf, pull out a good book and read an enlightening text. From the 23rd to the 27th, you'll want to escape in one form or another. This may involve a hospital stay, or a retreat where you can gain physical rest.
On the 24th a New Moon in Cancer comes in your 12th solar house. The next two weeks will give you the opportunity to dig deep into your past fears, relationship concerns, work and anxiety triggers. You'll be in tune to the feelings of other people, showing sympathy and compassion. This may even be extended to foster caring for pets. Perhaps some folk will visit hospitals, look after a partner's health or be in touch with a friend in need. However, it will be important to understand yourself, your past conditioning and how you react when facing conundrums about your job, health and lifestyle.
