Feel refreshed

Allow renewal to enter

Your 12 month cycle begins here

That fresh feeling we get after the rain. That indescribable scent of the world washed clean – which is called petrichor in case you didn’t know. Feeling renewed after soft rain is the emotional reset that this week’s new Moon in your 1st delivers on the 29th.

This is the start of your astrological new lunar cycle. Which is especially important for you as you are ruled by the Moon. It’s also asking you to get very real about something you want to achieve in the next 12 months. To focus on it and above all, take action to make it happen. We are the magic we are waiting for. That’s what the Sun and Moon’s angle to Jupiter is telling you. So, take three goals and forget the rest for now. Focus on these or perhaps just one at a time. And no, you can’t add another one to the list until you have crossed one out! For more on new beginnings, please see your personal forecast in this week’s new Moon in Cancer Moonscope.

It may be time to look at things realistically and see what you still need to let go of. We can’t ‘have it all’ – and neither do we have the time and resources to ‘do it all’ either. We can get to have and do what really matters however. And in order to achieve just that, we may have to prioritse and let some things go. That is what Neptune now backwards in your 9th combined with Venus and Mercury in your 12th wants you to do. So, head forward into the new as someone washed clean and free of what holds you back. And yes, if you want a birthday indulgence, you CAN buy petrichor as a perfume. Be the rain that washes away what is no longer needed and breathe in the scent of the new you, Cancer.

In a nutshell: Inhale renewal like the scent of soft rain this week, Cancer. The new Moon in your sign marks the start of your fresh cycle. Leave what’s stale and lived out behind you. Let nothing come between you and the future now.

Get fierce for your future

Unwrap the gift of the present

Happy solstice celebration to all Cancerians!

Even as you plan for your future and your new cycle, you are simultaneously curating your past, Cancer. Mercury direct once more in your 11th should have seen you revising those future plans. Now aided by Venus adding colour and depth to your dreams and friendships. Both are on the move into your 12th – Mercury (13th) and Venus (23rd). The Sun is in here right up until your birthday begins. That curating you’re doing needs a touch of universal perspective and inner wisdom.

Get in touch with how you see your future unfolding. Not just in the next 12 months but on into the imaginarium of your full potential. This may see you working that Cancer withdrawal and retreating temporarily into your cocoon. Along with your Tarot cards, your journal, that book, music, astrology chart. Where have you been? What did you learn from all those past experiences? How can you use these to shape your future? What impact does the past still have on you?

What remains precious and timeless and what needs to be released are part of this curation. Take all the time you need. Above all, look to the seeds you planted in the past especially when it comes to relationships and partnership matters. As Mercury and Venus move through your 11th they will angle to Pluto in your 7th – Mercury on the 10th and then Venus on the 21st. Venus will also meet the North Node on the 13th. Time to look at whether or not your expectations were fulfilled. Especially around love and relating. The choices you made going back as far as 19 years ago factor in. But take it this can mark the culmination or the start of a dream journey for you.

June’s full Moon is known as the Rose Moon, Dyad Moon, Strawberry Moon, Hot Moon and Crane Moon depending on where you live. It is also the full Moon which comes closest to the earth and when this occurs we get a supermoon. This one is supersized in Sagittarius – your 6th which contains everyday magic when it comes to that day job, those habits and your wellbeing.

The Moon packs a big message for you. As you know, full Moons shine their light into the house opposite to the one they appear in. So, the insights you receive will come from your 12th of the past but be applicable to where you are right now. Such as living your best life. Not in the future but in the now. What changes and/or adjustments need to take place for you to do this? This supermoon inspires and illuminates.

This could be a small adjustment to changing up that routine, fuelling your body better or a bigger one such as deciding to look for a new job. Explore further any gut messages and please, don’t dismiss any thoughts as ‘trivial’. No matter how mundane the area, chances are it has a bigger impact than what you think. Again, if you need to spend time alone to look deeper – do so. For more insight don’t forget to check your full Moon in Sagittarius Moonscope for your sign!

With Mercury now direct – and this supermoon appears in Mercury’s house, then if you are seeking to change jobs, study or get your hustle on, you now have a green light. And with Jupiter, Mars and Chiron in your career sector you are here to slay when it comes to career and status setting moves.

Sun, sun, sun – here it comes! In the UK, thousands of people gather at Stonehenge to watch the Sun rising to the left of the Heel Stone to mark the summer solstice (21st). The Southern hemisphere officially enters winter. The year pivots. And in your case, your new cycle begins as the Sun enters your 1st.

Now is the time to gather your plans, dreams and goals for the future, and set them in motion. You should have realised looking back at your past, that you are the catalyst of your own destiny. You make it happen. This is especially important now as we head towards the new Moon on the 29th. No matter when your birthday falls, this marks the start of your new astrological cycle and it tells you that what you make of it is entirely up to you. You move out of hiding and exploring your spiritual/inner realm and into the flow again.

Above all, when it comes to living that best life, don’t project too far ahead. Yes, goals can be realised in the coming year due to Jupiter’s opportunity creating factor. So, it is important to have some idea where you want to get to or what you want to achieve. That being said – living in the future is just as counterproductive as living in the past. Again, it deprives us of the magic of the NOW. So, when you wake everyday for the next month say to yourself ‘I am here to experience the magic of the NOW’. That way you won’t be so focused on what you hope is to come you miss something better that’s in the moment.

This is especially important at the time of the new Moon in your 1st (29th) The start of your astrological new year no matter when you birthday falls. Time to initiate new beginnings, breathe into the moment and what is going on around you, and then imagine all the possibilities the next 12 months can hold for you.

The Sun and new Moon will square Jupiter in your 10th meaning that you may meet with some resistance. Now, this can just as easily be internal as it can be an external barrier to progress. What this tells you is some effort is going to be required from you. Nothing worth having magically falls into our laps. And if it did, we might feel that something was inexplicably lacking. That feeling of dissatisfaction is due to the fact we didn’t get all the satisfaction of unleashing part of our greatness to get it! So be ready to push yourself past that point of resistance as the new Moon appears. Whether this is in the form of your own thoughts or simply knowing others are expecting you to bring your best game. You’re ready for the best – right now.

In a nutshell: Happy birthday, Cancer! The solstice brings you the start of a new cycle where your imagination guides you towards something greater. But remember to keep your focus on the here and now – that’s why they call the ‘present’ a gift!

Love is the question and the answer for you this year, Cancer. So ask the right questions to receive the reply you’re seeking. Lucky Jupiter has you in its boundless embrace as it continues to work its ruling 9th for you for half the year. While opening doors to success and achievement wide in your 10th!

You crave love, feel loving and want a deeper, passionate, caring and more committed relationship. Love is the question and the answer with Pluto making its long term transit of your 7th, Cancer. It continues to be the alchemy and the game changer for you in ‘22. However, please hold fire on launching yourself out into that New Year love-sphere as 2022 begins and don’t swipe that dating app just yet.

The year begins with Venus retrograde in its ruling 7th in your chart. Juno which rules marriages and all long term commitments co-joins with Pluto in here on Jan 24. This is all about the long term with an existing double act. It asks if you are in or out? Playing for keeps or just for fun? Or if the other party is. Adding to this is Mercury also retrograde in here. So, if you are in a relationship this could well be time for that ‘Where are we going?’ talk or simply taking that next big step.

Don’t avoid discussions around this. Maybe you have been shying away from them because you are afraid of the answer you will receive. That’s why love is both the question and the answer for you. All this retrograde activity plus the two meetings between Venus and Mars and Mars and Pluto say it’s better to know now. And if your answer isn’t what you wanted to move on. For those of you who are lucky enough to be with the right one, this can see both of you commit to a goal or fresh start you are jointly and passionately invested in. This can equally apply to a working relationship to.

Once Venus is direct again and meets Mars for the second time in your 8th on March 6th this ushers in your time for hot, hot love! March also sees all that retro weather blow away like the misty illusion that it is. It’s time to engage fully with the world and to get ready to experience something new and more fulfilling. Not just with love but all areas, Cancer.

No more illusions between you and what you want now. Or doubts about your ability to go for it. You have one of the best transits for opportunity, freedom, luck and big love occurring in your 9th on April 12 as Jupiter and Neptune meet in here for the first time in over 165 years. This is Jupiter’s ruling house and both planet’s ruling sign. Travel, foreigners, higher learning, writing, publishing, the mass media, the law, the great outdoors, spiritual beliefs, large animals especially horses, the ocean, overseas people and places may play a role. Leave what you know behind you. Go where the tides of luck take you. Time to take a chance. Where does the magic happen? Outside your comfort zone, cancer. Pack your suitcase either literally or on a psychic level and prepare to leave it.

This meeting is closely followed by a path setting full Moon in its ruling 4th which is one of the potentially most direction determining for the year. Fix your focus on freedom and purpose. This year’s eclipse axis is across Taurus and Scorpio – your 11th/5th houses. This is about friendships, networks, connections and goals. Romance, children and creativity/pleasure. Your resources and your values. What you share and what is shared with you in turn.

Venus will encounter Jupiter the day the first eclipse triggers this axis on April 30. This day brings an eclipsed ‘Black’ new Moon in your 11th and Venus’s ruling sign of Taurus. The term ‘Black’ Moon isn’t anything sinister. It simply describes an ultra rare event which is the second of two new Moons in a month. Something which can only occur once every 2.5 years. The fact that this one is eclipsed makes it rarer still.

Let’s review our basic eclipse knowledge which is extra for you as your ruler is always implicated in an eclipse. Three things in this universe cannot stay hidden for long. These are the Sun and the Moon – either one is in the shadows or hidden during an eclipse. The third is the truth which is what an eclipse always hides. Now, be aware the truth is just that. Neither good nor bad just the facts. Be we don’t want to be caught out by it. In your 11th you need to keep an open mind.

In your 5th, tune into your children if you have them as something may be going on they may not have confided in you or they may need your support. But across both of these houses in eclipse season, you need to avoid seeking that new lover and take things slowly with regards to anyone new during these times. Be wary of anyone who love or friend bombs you under this eclipse cycle. They may not be what they first appear to be.

Your dates are May 16 – total lunar eclipse in your 5th, Oct 25 – partial solar eclipse in your 5th and a total lunar eclipse conjunct Uranus in its ruling 11th on Nov 8th. Don’t judge a book by its cover but also keep an open mind when it comes to promises or potential around a particular connection. The proof is in the delivery – nothing else.

Big up those ambitions and set some serious intentions around achievement and actualization from May onwards. If you are on the wrong path, nothing will keep you there now but don’t worry, you’ll be sent down a new and better one as Jupiter arrives in your 10th on May 10.

After Jupiter’s historic and boundary breaking encounter with Neptune, time to big up those ambitions and set some serious intentions around achievement and actualization from May onwards. If you are on the wrong path, nothing will keep you there now but don’t worry, you’ll be sent down a new and better one as Jupiter arrives in your 10th on May 10. Jupiter spends half the year in here and the other half back in its ruling 9th. It’s about moving on up in more ways than one. Living and loving large, Cancer!

Many of you could encounter Jupiter in person in the form of a generous or helpful boss, teacher or mentor figure who opens doors to long term progress and perfection of those plans. Because your 10th doesn’t just rule your status but that of your partner, others could benefit from their partner’s success in their chosen area.

Single? Jupiter in here combined with Venus in your 1st during your birthday cycle could bring you that serious contender for your heart who means business. You find their optimism, sense of humour and above all, loyalty to those they care about and love, exactly what you are looking for. They may be successful in their chosen field even if this is an unconventional one. Chances are this may be someone who embraced hybrid working long before it became the new normal for so many of us!

Travel is also on the cards for you especially during the periods Jupiter heads back into its 9th. Especially traveling back to somewhere you have past links (or even past life links) to. Mars will spend a long time in your mysterious 12th this year including a retrograde which begins on October 30 and takes you on into 2023. People will show their true colours now. Who is on your side may surprise you – one way or another.

Get that answer

Your energy will peak during this time and for once, you won’t suffer fools gladly. Be prepared for complaints from others who may tell you that you are not your usual soothing self during this transit. The answer is you are. You are simply more aware of when people may be stepping over the line or taking advantage of you. And calling them out on it!

This new empowered you is actually very sexy. Strangely enough, setting some boundaries just gets you more respect from others in your life and more of what you want as you broadcast those standards. Venus ends the year where it began – back in your 7th from December 10 making the run up to the New Year another great period for duos, double acts and delightful duet possibilities along with the Sun in here from the 21st and a new Supermoon on the 23rd.

You are the brightest star in the sky when it comes to attraction at this time thanks to Jupiter’s return to your 10th on Dec 20. Time to plan your next move for 2023. But wait to initiate. You may end the year with the return of something or someone, Cancer as the 29th sees Mercury stationary retrograde conjunct Venus in your 7th. Or is it a revival of an old love or goal you’re aiming for in the New Year? If you asked a question at the start of the year, you’ll have it answered as it closes. The only way now is up in 2023!
