Cancer Yearly Forecast 2020
Relationships transform and transform you in the process
Take a new partnership journey
Big commitments see you putting a ring on it!
You’ve been on a journey with someone these past years – or is that a rollercoaster ride? It’s all been down to the presence of Pluto in your 7th of partners and also rivals and opponents. It’s through the person ‘opposite’ us that we evolve our understanding of love. And our understanding of ourselves. Your 7th is a house of both attraction and reflection. The opposite number reflects back at us an aspect of ourselves. This has especially applied to you thanks to the presence of the South Node in here. This rules cycles that repeat until we understand the lesson and step free. Usually by changing something about ourselves rather than trying to change the world. Or in the case of your 7th – the other party.
Saturn also in this house rules timing and karma. It tells us there is serious work to do in a particular area of our lives. In your case relationships and the ‘c’ word – commitment which Saturn also rules. Saturn can make things feel like they are ‘heavy’ going. Hence the heavy weather feeling around relationships which peaks in January. The thing to realise is that Saturn is simply too big to push around. You can’t ‘make’ things happen with a Saturn transit. It’s either time to be in a long-term relationship or even time to consciously uncouple. Resistance is futile under Saturn.
Saturn can however reward like no other planet when we work within the structure symbolised by its rings. Yes, ‘put a ring on it’. Or remove it. Pluto also in your 7th rules transformation, sex, endings and rebirth. So what you can expect as 2020 begins is a major restructuring around a key relationship be this a marriage or love connection or even a business one. If you do not work but have a partner, you may be affected by changes to your partner’s status perhaps at work. This is also about status. Yours or your partners. Or potential partners. Being a ‘Mr’ or a ‘Mrs’ for example.
This 7th house weather is about to peak in a way you have never experienced before – nor will again. Decisions can be made around key connections which transform the relationship, yourself and the other person. Or something shifts and begins which hands you this potential. Jan 12 sees Mercury, Saturn, Pluto and Ceres all meet. Both Pluto and Ceres rule power in their own way. In mythology, Ceres was Pluto’s mother-in-law. For some of you, this could result as just that – an in-law clash or the realisation an in-law is calling the shots on your relationship. Others could experience status shifting changes within a close union. Going from married to separated, single to settled for example. Promotions, demotions, moves and becoming aware of seismic shifts within you that impact on your closest ties and what you need. Within all of this there is an opportunity to reach for a higher way to relate to others thanks to Jupiter also in this house until the year’s end. Whatever occurs in January paves the way for a bigger kind of love experience.
Know Your Worth
This isn’t just about feeling the love of another person. It’s also about showing yourself self-love. We tend to think of the 7th as about partners. But there’s one relationship we are in from cradle to grave – the one with ourselves. If you want changes to outer relationships, begin with the one with yourself. Shower yourself with self-love no matter what your partnership situation is or is evolving into. Feeling confident in this, stable in your commitment to yourself translates simply into confidence in your relationship decisions for the coming year. You’ll experience this from the time that Saturn shifts out of your 7th and on into your 8th from March 22. You’ll know what to ask for in both your personal and your professional relationships based simply on your new self-worth value system. That ring? 22 carat!
You’re Becoming Gold
Stability and security are important to you. Your needs are in focus due to a special kind of retrograde energy this year. You’re diving deep into the true nature of love when Venus retrogrades in your 12th from May 13. This may be an intensely personal experience. The past could resurface in the form of a past lover. Is there left-over business between you? A soul contract to be re-written perhaps? Or just changes within that you need to work out based on past experiences to hand yourself a new love future? The North Node leaving your 1st and swinging back into your 12th says you have the power to change your destiny now simply by understanding the path you have been on.
I should not need to tell you that with the ruler of your love life and your money backwards in here, embarking on a new liaison or even taking on big financial commitments is not advised. That lover or even that get rich quick scheme is not what it appears to be. If it looks too good to be true – it most probably is. Jupiter is also retrograde at this time in your 7th and with both planets backwards for some this could deliver a missed opportunity or reconciliation. Just ensure it heads forward on a new basis in order to succeed.
Venus will head forward once more from June 25. And on June 21 you have an important eclipse in your 1st. This is an Annular Eclipse at the time of the new Moon. You also have two new Moons in your sign during your birthday cycle. Two opportunities for a fresh start. But the first one may be unclear. Eclipses conceal something. We’re in the dark. Not totally with an Annular Eclipse because it gives us that ‘ring of fire’ effect. A flash of insight if you like. The ring of truth which Saturn wants us to embrace. Add this to the Venus retrograde and this adds up to caution when it comes to starting anything new – or ending something. Take it you don’t have the big picture yet. Wait until at least after the second new Moon in your 1st on July 22 and if possible until after Venus arrives in your 1st on August 7 when a clearer picture will begin to emerge.
New Beginnings In Love
Your best times to begin that new relationship or to rekindle the love between you and someone else are when Venus is in your sign from Aug 7 until Sept 5. This period favours new beginnings and reinventions. Across any area from your personal look, image or style to your professional one. The time of the new Moon in your 5th of attraction, attention and romance on November 15th is another one. The new Moon makes a powerful angle to Jupiter and Pluto in your 7th. This can point to lucky breaks, new beginnings in love or a fresh opportunity to showcase your talents and shine. A cycle of success could be triggered now if you are willing to take a chance – perhaps on yourself and your abilities. Self-love adds up to believing in yourself too!
How What You Do Affects How You Feel
You need to apply that signature Cancerian intuition to that work/body/spirit connection during December. What I can tell you is that this is all interlinked in a way that is not obvious. But will be. The effect your job or daily routine, the ‘vibe’ you are living or working in, the food you fuel your body with and how good or drained you feel. The answer to all this will emerge as will the connection. However, you are in the dark right now about some aspect of this. All due to a total eclipse in your 6th of work, wellbeing, duty and routine on Dec 14. You may feel something is going on behind the scenes at work. Or have a hunch that what you are doing, eating or repeating may not be good for you after all. Wait for the feelgood factor to slowly reveal itself and above all, follow your gut instincts when it comes to changing your diet, daily routine or health regimen. You’ve supported that inner you with self-love. It may now be the time to show that body some love too. Try a little tenderness and don’t take on too much in your desire to nurture others if self-nurturing is called for.
Power Money & Big Commitments
Jupiter leaves your 7th on Dec 19 when it joins Saturn in your 8th. Hopefully it should have delivered at least one potential partnership dynamic for you during the past 12 months. Or eased you out of one that no longer worked. Jupiter is the planet which keeps on giving. In here it adds up to big benefits, money or other resources that are shared with you by someone, corporate money as in your salary, pay-outs, maintenance, wills, insurance, legacies and mortgages and loans. Along with Saturn, long term commitments can be entered into. You should be handling larger sums of money, taking on more responsibilities or be handed the ‘keys’ to the vault. As in that mortgage, employment contract, loan agreement or even someone giving you access to what they have freely. It’s time to know what you want. And to get serious about it. You’re putting a ring on love, self-love and above all, what you know you need for the long term in 2020, Cancer!
In a nutshell: You’ve an invitation to explore a new kind of freedom in love, Cancer. Life offers a new partnership experience in 2020. Between you and another or even just you and yourself. And yes, no matter what form it takes – it’s all love!
