Set a clear direction

Expect positive change

Your values are your compass

What is stopping you living the way you want, Cancer? Change is in the air this week as a cosmic shift takes place which could bring about a whole new set of circumstances for you to experiment with. Have you been carried along by the tide without thinking of whether or not it is taking you where you need to be? This can apply to where you live, your work or even who you socialise with. Maybe it has worked up to a point so far. But this week you’ll see the need to determine your own direction in a key area which may also go hand-in-hand with you letting something or someone go. This has well and truly been lived out and may in fact be holding you back. The problem with going along with the tide (or others, or what others think) is that you can end up somewhere you don’t want to  be. See this as not just a change you reclaiming lost empowerment too.

This week also sees the Sun and Mercury in your 4th of all things Cancerian related as well as a focus on what you value. These values are those you have accumulated on a soul level over many lifetimes and speak volumes about who you are and what you stand for. Think of these as riches you have accumulated that stand the test of time. Questions around whether you have ‘sold out’ and also karma around money are reflected in what is happening this week with regards to your income, assets and even those people you rely on to be there. What you owe, what people owe you, debts and promises accumulated over more than one lifetime could be paid or fall due. Remember, our bank accounts can fluctuate but what we’re truly worth never falters. Be worthy this week.


monthly horoscope

Lock down that love

Take yourself seriously

Define what home means to you

What have you decided about love and partnerships, Cancer? Time to take action on this now Saturn finally heads direct again in your 7th. Who is with you for the long term? Who isn’t? Lock down that love – or let it go. Saturn retrograde in this house has been asking you to get serious when it comes to relating. This can simply boil down to getting serious about what it is you want – which may not be anything serious right now. Or it might. Saturn isn’t about a half-hearted approach. It’s about owning our choices and taking responsibility for them. It’s about our responsibility to ourselves too. Such as when we know what it is we want, not being with someone who wants something different. And being unafraid to be honest about what it is we want for the long term. Saturn rules time so another way of looking at this is to say there’s no more time wasters. Honesty, integrity and a willingness to do the work are all Saturn’s trademarks. Hopefully they are now yours too when it comes to long term love, what you want from partners or just love in general.

Remember, this house in your chart also rules all kinds of close connections – your long term friends, business partners and collaborators if you have them, close working relationships and yes, that person you truly can’t stand – your ‘opponent’ as this is your house of open enemies.  The person opposite you may not always be the one you love but they do have something to teach you about your love evolution nonetheless. Saturn retro should have allowed you to see where you have established a true ‘support structure’ across all your long-term connections. And even allowed you to access new levels of core calmness when dealing with that ‘difficult’ person. You should also be emerging from this with the knowledge that it’s ALL love. You don’t have to be in a romantic partnership to experience love. This is merely one facet of how love expresses itself. And as a footnote, staying in the wrong love connection is a waste of love itself – for both parties. Saturn says being authentic means not faking it if you no longer feel it. Mercury in its ruling 3rd makes a communication enhancing angle to Saturn the day it moves forward again. So, get talking when it comes to authentic expression.

The new Moon also in your 3rd on the 9th opposes Neptune and this is also the day when Venus, planet of love, arrives in your romance zone. Time to ensure you get your message across now, no matter for whom it is intended. Say it with love for extra effect. This is your ‘Game Plan’ new Moon where you set in motion plans for the future. What do they include? Get very clear about this. Neptune offers you enhanced vision and creativity but can also lead you into confusion and unrealistic expectations. This is one of those houses in your chart that link you to learning and also getting to the point! So, you may be able to harness all the positive aspects of this Moon and Neptune and channel both your analytical and intuitive faculties into what you say and those ideas.

Above all, this is a time to set something in motion. This is an excellent new Moon for starting a new job or job search, launching that project or product, website or embarking on a course of study. Travel, learning or even upskilling are all in focus as is increased communication and more work. Venus in your 5th boosts your attraction factor and sets your personal aura to sparkle. You’ll draw to you anything from attention to romantic opportunities, work recognition, pleasure all enhanced with a pinch of good luck. Think of yourself as the star of your own show now. Work your ‘brand’ as Venus in here endows you with a touch of glamour. Look and feel you best and even update your image if necessary as part of your path to pleasure. Make a commitment to yourself. That’s serious self-love.

This month offers you one of the best windows for attraction that you’ll experience in 2018. The reason being you have both Venus and Jupiter in your 5th at the same time – something you won’t experience again for another 12 years! This coupled with the decisions you have made about your love future, puts you in a position to create it. You’ve a fearless, flirtatious intensity about you and this ability to say what’s on your mind means you won’t shy away from saying what’s on your mind – or taking that conversation further. You’ll pursue work and money matters and that flirtation could quickly head into XXX territory thanks to a transformational and sexy alignment between  Mercury and Pluto mid-month! News around work, study or even travel could feature when the Sun and Mercury meet in your 3rd on the 21st. Contracts could be signed, deals struck or you could upgrade your computer, phone or even a new means of getting around now.

The focus turns to matters closer to home from the 22nd when Mercury enters your 4th, followed by the Sun on the 23rd. Time to focus on your home environment, lifestyle, family and your long term security. Make changes to living arrangements if necessary and look to your roots. Not just your family tree and where you come from – but what gives your life stability. For many of us this encompasses so much more than just the family we were born into or who raised us. But includes our relationships, our work, our friends – as well as where we feel ‘at home’. Our sense of ‘belonging’. And as your sign rules all these themes, you identify with them more strongly than most others. Between now and the Sun changing signs in October, thank of this as your ‘housekeeping’ period. Where you get to see where you truly belong and what belongs with you. If you like, this is an extension of the work you were doing during the Saturn retrograde. Now it’s about what and where you love as well as who in a larger sense. Who you share your living space with will become increasingly important. As will where this living space is. Is it where you live now or is it somewhere else entirely? Your job and career path is linked to all of this and the full Moon in your 10th on the 26th could bring up an issue around this. You will realise the importance of how you are perceived by others – especially bosses, employers (including potential ones) and those in positions of power and influence.

It’s time to reach for something new and if you were thinking of starting something at the time of the new Moon but hesitated when the full Moon appears, procrastinate no more. Ensure you are seen in the best possible light and make the most of any opportunity to make a good impression. Especially on people in a position to help or assist you. Getting serious about love means taking every facet of your life seriously. Your need for love, your need for security, and for recognition. Take yourself seriously this September and watch as others follow your lead.

In a nutshell: Time to get serious. No more timewasting when it comes to love – or your career Cancer. Take yourself seriously – and be ready for serious results.

annual horoscope

Cancer 2018 

Life for you is about to get a lot more interesting! You’re moving out of your comfort zone and embracing a revolution in your social zone. Uranus has been in your career sector since 2010! Hopefully, you have had an opportunity to discover your true calling or to appreciate what you and you alone, bring to the table. Have you become the champion of your own ideas? No doubt there have been shocks, wonder, thrills, breakthroughs and even some instability along the way. The ride is not quite over, there should be a crescendo of wonder to finish off 2018 as you end it on a high note. But there are also some spectacular shifts to come. So let’s get started. Your career can launch you into a different direction so align yourself with mavericks, entrepreneurs and influencers. This should be your mindset – open to possibilities.

On 9th Jan the Sun joins forces with naughty and intense Pluto in your relationship zone. Expect an intimate revelation but also to know your worth and power. Much of this year is about you finding your strength in your personal relationships, and you’re likely to be much more feisty than usual. You also know what you want and are clearer about this than you have been at any other time. What is happening in your relationship zone this year and on in to 2019 and even 2020 is not just some once in a 10, 15 or even 20 year cycle. It is a once in a lifetime cycle. Expect not just a transformation in your personal life but to how you love and relate to others. Even the kind of partner you are seeking may change dramatically as you find your own deepest needs surfacing and making themselves known. There’s alchemy happening here. Elements fuse to create a new love dynamic within you. You are changed and therefore so is the way you love – and the kind of lovers you attract.

The total Eclipse of the Full Moon on the 31st January gives you an intuitive taste of a shift occurring in your finance and abundance area this year. When the Full Moon eclipse occurs, it’s the perfect time to let go of any doubts as a symbol, dream or strange coincidence gives you a clue on which direction to take. The new Moon which follows on Feb 15 helps you cast out old shadows and insecurities. 2018 is about self-acceptance and a deep inner healing which leads to a new level of fearlessness. The planets are beavering away to help you transform any issue that is primal. You can conquer all wounds connected to sexuality, life, death, rebirth. Bye, bye ghosts, hello Goddess!

In the spring the Cosmos helps you to commit to a new level of intimacy. Mars and Saturn are giving you true grit. If you’ve felt bullied or put down your warrioress within can handle and overcome it. You’re gutsy with a taste for the profound. Trust your inner knowing on any issues that come up. You might find yourself thrust into the limelight or have to push the boundaries to achieve your dreams, but the Universe has your back. You might find yourself getting into more arguments than usual as you fight for what you want and are prepared to stand your ground. Having said that there’s also an opportunity for daring and intriguing love affairs and all sorts of naughty shenanigans. You may want to explore where you’ve been afraid to tread before. There’s a desire to walk on the wild side, to live just a little bit dangerously especially when it comes to what you might have previously thought of as ‘forbidden fruit’. Whether it is or not now is very much up to you.

On May 15 Uranus shifts signs giving you a flavour of what to expect in 2019. Uranus is a genius, radical who loves to shake things up, get us thinking outside the square and to bring us sudden, thrilling and surprising experiences. When he enters your social zone, he’s likely to bring innovation and necessary disruption. Expect a new tribe to pop up. People from different backgrounds, different professions, different life paths cross yours.  You can become involved in unexpected collaborations – anything from a band to an internet start-up. Your social media profile is strongly influenced at this time. Do you have a website, blog or YouTube channel? Fancy doing a TEDx talk or to repurpose and relaunch your brand, identity or creativity? Are you yourself an idea whose time has come? Uranus puts you in the spotlight, so it’s up to you to then fly. Think out of the box, try experimenting. Adjust your social scene. Branch out into new areas – and watch the magic happen. Uranus moves back to your career house in November for one last visit. What have you learned since he moved forward? Can you bring this innovation to bear before he exits here for good? Think of the pathfinders who have dared to be different and see how you can emulate them even in a small way and adopt an entrepreneur mindset.

When Venus, La Amore, enters your sign on May 19, others find you bewitching as the Goddess of Love encourages you to love yourself first. After all, if you can’t love yourself, how you gonna love somebody else? Or they love you for that matter! You’re seeking harmony, and any troublesome relationships heal now. Looking for a lover or want to boost your cash flow? Venus is in a mood to indulge you. It’s a time to radiate and in return attract.

The most profound day of the year for you is likely to be July 12th when there’s a Solar Eclipse in your sign! The eclipse is giving you a confidence reboot, an urge to redesign your life, radically change your look or head in a new direction beckons. Remember, eclipses initially cover up. So see this as a time when you ready yourself to unveil or reveal a new you, a new lifestyle or a new attitude. Go within and ready yourself for a transformation. Like a caterpillar becoming a chrysalis. This midyear period sees a total of three eclipses occur within a month as we have a total lunar eclipse in your 8th house of transformation on the 27th. The changes will be deep and lasting. Look to what is transmuting, transforming or which you are now ready to reveal. The next eclipse – this time a solar one, occurs at the time of the new Moon on August 11 in your 2nd.  This could potentially be a game changing catalyst when it comes to your abundance and ability to receive it. Let go of any patterns that are not working for you. Look to your emotional connection to prosperity and focus on how to sort out your cashflow. You could receive an intriguing offer and this could reflect your new relationship to both your money and your personal power.

Jupiter is shifting signs in November and firmly taking you to a place of balance. If you look after yourself the Universe will look after you. The next phase is all about your health and wellbeing, as well as service to others. You are given extra juice to sort your mind, body and soul out and to explore the connection between them. If one is out of alignment, this affects the others. Your day job, paid or unpaid work, your duties and responsibilities, bosses, co-workers and your pets if you have them are going to feature over the next 12 months. If you are out of work or seeking to return to the workforce, Jupiter in here should bring you at least one job offer during his stay in here. Those in work could see their role expand and the rewards along with this. If you want to change jobs, again, you should not only receive at least one offer but one that offers you not just better pay but the opportunity to stretch yourself and learn. Travel for work is a distinct possibility with Jupiter in here. Your confidence allows you to aim high and your willingness to tackle any task plus the enthusiasm you can bring to the job means you’re in a position to make a positive impression on bosses or those in positions of influence. People will want to work with you as you exude esprit de corps so collaborative ventures are favoured now.  


This is your house of health and fitness and Jupiter of course rules sport and the great outdoors. As pets feature some of you may adopt a furry family member and walking a dog is a great day to get fit – and meet new people. However, if you are a committed couch potato not even Jupiter can coax you away from the pizza and the boxset! Just be warned that Jupiter loves to expand – and this includes your waistline if you are not careful. Overall, however, Jupiter’s entry into this house usually sees us with more to do, not less. Jupiter wants us to get moving – both in terms of our bodies, and our working lives.  Adapting a new philosophy towards our work and making work an adventure is what Jupiter in here is all about. He favours boldness, taking a chance and above all, aiming high. You can do this by harnessing both Jupiter’s power of success and Uranus’ ability to tap into your individual smarts. You’re pretty well unstoppable for 2018 Cancer. Make your mark.
