Friends influence your future path
Own that emotional truth!
Evolve your double act dynamics
Despite the new Supermooon in your house of duos, duets and double acts of all descriptions on the 2nd, new love or partnership matters still has the ‘Pause’ button pushed on them as ‘22 begins, Cancer. The reason being Venus ruler of this house, is retrograde in here until the 29th. Not only that, you have Mercury retrograde in your change making 8th from the 14th which returns to your 7th on the 26th. This is about love replays, reboots and returns rather than swiping right. Please bear this in mind this month. Especially if you want to avoid getting shipwrecked on those retro rocks.
Remember, your 7th rules not just long-term love and live-in/marriage partnerships but every kind of double act and opposite number you can think of. With dynamic and confidence bearing Mars entering your 7th from the 24th,, the Sun in here until the 20th, Pluto in here for a long stay and now Juno, ruler of marriages and commitments entangled with both retro Venus (7th) and Pluto (24th). Whatever you do, don’t hang on to the status quo if deep down you know things need to change.
Also, don’t be afraid to have that conversation you may have been putting off with a significant other either. Or in taking steps to aim for that better working dynamic if you come to the conclusion that the one you are in has been lived out. This especially applies after the Sun enters your 8th on the 20th and meets retro Mercury on the 23rd. This is your house of shared (marital) assets and this also rules your salary. If something no longer works, the final week of the month throws this into sharp relief. And retroactive Mercury favours everything from revising that CV to renegotiations and consciously uncoupling from any situation that is unable to evolve you either emotionally or professionally.
Vesta’s arrival in your 7th from the 12th has you looking at issues around equality and gender politics. And in this house again, this stretches across both your personal and your professional life. Are you given parity and taken seriously for instance? Are you expected to assume a certain role or behave in a proscribed way based simply on how you identify yourself? Or judged by this? If you are being dismissed, diminished, taken for granted or ignored based simply on gender bias, watch out for the full Moon in your sign on the 17th which may bring things to a head. This is known as a Wolf or Snow Moon. The deepest part of winter illuminated by the brightest light which shows what is possible for us ahead.
This full Moon acts as a searchlight around co-joining and closeness. Because full Moons always reflect their light into the house opposite to the one they appear in – in this case your 7th, it may throw one particular relationship – past or present, into the spotlight. Your needs are highlighted as whether that give and take is present. Or in the case of a past connection – where it may have fallen short of what you needed. As always with a powerful lunar cycle, this asks you to be emotionally honest and authentic. With yourself and others. Vesta in your 7th is telling you to take what you feel seriously. Don’t close down but open up. Understand you have the sovereign right to your feelings but unless you share them unedited, others no matter how close cannot be expected to understand.
Be the ruler of your emotional truth. And be open to listening without criticism or censure, to how others feel in return. If you are single, this full Moon can send you in search of the kind of relationship you really need for the future to get those needs met. Spend some time with this and you’ll be setting yourself up to know it when it turns up from next month when Venus regains its momentum.
Who or what are you searching for?
In another part of your chart, a fresh long term cycle of potential is unfolding. The 19th sees the North Node exit your 12th and arrive in your 11th of friends, contacts and goals. It’s been 19 years since the North Node, that spinning point of karma and fate, has been in this sector of your chart. What makes this transit different from any you might have experienced in the past if you were 18 or over last time this occurred, is that this time the ruler of this house – Uranus, is in residence. In fact, Uranus moves to direct motion in here the day before the Node arrives. Plus you also have Ceres, planet of new deals and compromises also moving direct in here on the 14th.
What’s that new deal you need to make with your future – which is what this house rules. How do you see yourself and most importantly, with who? Who you know drives that future vision and they will have a huge influence on your path and how it unfolds not just for the time the Node is in here, but far on into your future. Above all now, be a joiner, not a hermit. Depending on how the pandemic is unfolding in your corner of the world, you need to be connecting, socialising and circulating. People will prove to be your greatest allies and assets now. The more you share yourself, the more will be shared with you in turn.
The Sun in your 8th from the 20th points to empowered and self-directed change. And yes, that fresh sexiness ready for the Venus direct again, Cancer. This will take you into February so be ready to harness it! To underscore that pursuit of passion, Jupiter in its ruling 9th sees the month out by getting together with Eros on the 30th.
Take aim at a bigger, higher love or result, Cancer. Adopt a no limits mindset and above all, follow the promptings of your higher self when it comes to change. Step out of that comfort zone and go after what it is you TRULY want as opposed to staying safe and settling for less. February will see all of us making up for lost retro time. You have a head start on the rest of us. What are you waiting for, Cancer? Change up your future. Charge up the love!
In a nutshell: Who you know and not what, defines your future path. But in the present it’s time to get very clear about what you want from partnerships. Then, now and forever, Cancer. Decisions can be made.
