The Sun will transit the water sign Cancer from July 16th 2020 (11.03 AM IST) to 16th August 2020 (7.27 PM IST).
The Sun is considered King in Vedic astrology. It is the provider of nourishment to the Earth without which there would be no life. The Sun is also considered ‘Soul’ -- the soul of all human beings.
The Sun is so mighty that its transit impacts us greatly. Good results can be achieved with the transiting Sun, which may not be present in your chart at all. A good astrologer can read many events in the transiting Sun.
The Sun is a fiery planet, while Cancer which is ruled by the Moon is a watery sign. When fire and water signs come together, the results can be dramatic, although more often than not this results in extinguished fire (energy) and scalded water (emotions). In this, the Sun is considered to have only the 7th aspect of the Sun, thus it will impact Capricorn, which is ruled by Saturn and currently, Saturn is transiting.
The current Sun transit into Cancer will have varied effects on all signs -- be it love, health or career opportunities. Following are the predictions as per the Moon signs: (Know Your Moon Sign)
