The Sun enters the sign of Cancer on June 21, 2007, which inaugurates the Summer season worldwide. The positions of the planets are the same the world over for the moment of the ingress, so the important features here are house positions and house rulerships, which will vary by location.

For this season, we will still give priority to our Aries ingress horoscope from the spring. This is for two reasons: one, the Aries ingress addresses the conditions for the entire year, so it is an “umbrella” chart that we must consult before making more specific predictions. Two, the old astrologers used to say that when the Aries ingress ascendant is in a mutable sign, we need to look at the Aries ingress and the Libra ingress only, to get a good feeling for each half of the upcoming year. This Spring, we had Virgo ascending here in the West during the Aries Ingress, so the Aries and Libra ingress is this year will be most important. So the Cancer ingress might be helpful, but it is not that important in a year such as this one.

The Cancer Ingress horoscope for San Francisco, California, is below:

Our Aries ingress indicated that it was going to be windy and temperate in 2007, due to Mercury in Pisces conjunct the seventh house cusp. So we have to keep this in mind as we look at the Cancer ingress horoscope. In this chart, we see that Jupiter rules the fourth house cusp, which would give us a warm and dry summer (no surprise there), though nothing extreme, due to Jupiter’s benefic nature. Also, Jupiter is trine Venus in Leo, which gives another hint of a warm but not unpleasant season. Last year’s deadly heat wave is not likely to return this year (it was indicated by the Sun near the ascendant in that year’s Cancer ingress, by the way).

Most likely, we will have a pretty breezy summer, due to Mercury’s continuing influence. For those of us in the earthquake-prone San Francisco Bay area, July may well give us a little bit of a rattle, as Mercury rules both winds and earthquakes.

    I’ve been watching Nature – migration of ants and spiders into homes, as well as the flight paths of seagulls. I’ve seen spiders everywhere indoors and the ants are already beginning to come in. Also, seagulls usually hang around the ocean, but they are intermittantly coming into the main land area of the San Francisco peninsula, which isn’t typical.

    These are very old-fashioned, but traditional, European ways of forecasting weather. As hard as this may be for some Californians to believe, we are probably going to have a very wet, if not stormy winter.

    Hi Maryanne,

    Yes, I believe you are right on. I looked at the chart for this winter a few months ago, and it looked very gnarly, with a prominent Saturn on the Ascendant, square the Moon on the MC.
