In a nutshell: Fire up that passion and follow where it wants to lead you now, Cancer. There should be no room for so-so love or ambivalent feelings towards someone. It’s hot or simply not now. Seek out the heat.

Cancer

Come and get your love!

Get equalling billing in that double act

Head towards something bigger

Despite the fact the Sun is now in your 8th, the focus this week is still very much on your opposite sign of Capricorn and your 7th house.

Duos, duets and double acts of all descriptions feature. As well as your feeling about their future. Mars’s arrival in here on the 24th asks if you are feeling the love or at the very least, the passion and the intention. If you need to take action to come and get your love as the song by Redbone encourages you to do (appropriate for Mars as it’s colour is red), then this is your week to do just that. Especially as this week sees Venus the ruler of this house finally end its retrograde on the 29th.

Be Two

The Juno/Pluto meeting in here also on the 24th is a determining factor around whether you are coming to collect on an existing love or off in pursuit of a new one entirely. Juno rules long term promises and commitments. Not just the marriage kind but any long term two-some you jump into. Some of you may leave one to embark on another – perhaps of the work variety or an existing union undergoes a radical change.

You’ve a need for a more equal, egalitarian set-up be this in love or business and will strive to get it. Going back over the T&C’s in an existing partnership is favoured with retroactive Mercury re-entering here on the 26th. The planetary head count in this house is still at six – Mercury, Venus, Mars, Juno, Vesta and Pluto – this despite the Sun in your 8th. Future proof any changes you make or agree to around those existing unions and fearlessly look at what you want from any kind of partnership for the future. No matter what form it takes.

If passion is missing – you won’t be content to put up with the status quo. Lucky breaks, access all areas solutions or doors to a wider world of opportunity point to a new outcome or direction you can take as Eros and Jupiter meet in your 9th on the 30th. Eros takes aim at a target while Jupiter in its ruling sign and house acts as you ultimate cosmic navigator. Steering your ship of dreams unerringly towards opportunities or the answers you seek. That include those around love, Cancer. Dream bigger when it comes to what you believe you can have.

In a nutshell: Fire up that passion and follow where it wants to lead you now, Cancer. There should be no room for so-so love or ambivalent feelings towards someone. It’s hot or simply not now. Seek out the heat.

CANCER

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.

Cancer

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!
