Own what it is you want from love

It’s not what you’re asking – it’s the way you ask

The deal may change – but not the outcome

If you are seeking something long term – especially around love, time to own that, Cancer. This week is about compromises too. But only where this does not compromise your own soul integrity.

Juno enters your 5th of love affairs and all things pleasure-centered. Juno is about commitments and promises. Ones we cannot easily extricate ourselves from. So, if you are single and seeking something serious – let others know. If you are in a relationship and have expectations, hopes and dreams, you need to make these clear. It’s not about ultimatums, just honesty and ensuring you are on the same page.

Venus in its ruling 2nd is all about your values and how you value yourself. It meets Vesta in here on the 22nd. This is about coming from a place of love and balance. But seeking an outcome that is fair and equal. Again, this may involve talking about those expectations and your needs. Even on a domestic level as the Sun arrives in your 4th on the same day.

Compromise is key

Again, this is about ownership of everything for your need for practical and emotional support, your ambitions and desires and what you want for your future. You’ve the ability to keep a cool head combined with a warm heart in any discussion now thanks to Mercury’s opposition to retro Mars in your 10th. Above all, seek the middle ground and understand that sometimes we just need to frame what we are saying in a new way to get the answer we want.

Mercury shifts into your 5th on the 27th adding a playful element to flirting, attraction and boosting your creativity. Yet, you are projecting depth and honesty along with this. Your ideas have sparkle and zest now. Retro Ceres also re-arrives in your 8th the same day. Again, if discussions have stalled this could re-open them and push towards a compromise or win/win. Don’t be shy about telling others what you want this week. Cutting to the chase is the quickest way to get there.

Grow that dream

Fuel up for the long haul

Believe in your dreams

This month’s full Moon appears at the start of September in your 9th. It is asking you where you believe your dreams can take you? You know, sometimes we need to travel in the realm of our imagination for a while. Especially when, as is the case right now, actual travel, especially the long- distance kind which this house rules, is not possible or limited. So, boldly go and explore. Perhaps via movies, books, documentaries, fantasy, science fiction or looking at what the great attractor could bring you.

Get ready to upgrade those dreams

Dream a bigger dream under this full Moon. Is there a subject which fascinates you and seems to call to you? This is a full Moon of the deep dive. Inner space as in your beliefs, thoughts and ideas may fascinate too. Psychology, self-help or what makes you tick and the world go round. You may be interested in other cultures and their beliefs. This is your house of study, academia, the law, the great outdoors and large animals. Especially horses. Anything appeal? However, avoid speculative ventures under this full Moon. (That lucky dip on the lotto is allowed however).

Mercury is on the move on the 5th heading into home territory for you. In other words, your 4th house. The Sun’s arrival in here from the 22nd puts home, family, property, emotional security and where you hang your hat and your heart is, very firmly in focus. Decisions and contracts related to this can be made and signed.

Venus leaves your 1st this month and on the 2nd, enters its ruling 2nd. As this is your money house there is an obvious connection here between income and your sense of security. What you need to meet your needs. It’s not just about money either. Venus in here is about attracting more to see your needs are being met. So, help, assistance, gifts and people who support you.

Try a new approach for a radically different result

Being able to put our needs into words, asking for what it is we need from someone be it on an emotional level or yes, even that job or piece of business, is a reflection of our self-worth. Which is again, all tied to our 2nd house. The aspect between Mercury and Chiron on the 11th is going to test how comfortable you feel about asking someone for something.

This is the same day as the Sun in your 3rd (which Mercury rules) opposes Neptune in your 9th. What this adds up to is a new solution or way out of an old problem – but which you create for yourself by trying something new. Listen to inspiration and intuition when it comes to this. Then – follow up on its advice for far-reaching results. If you dare!

Fuel up for success

Mars retrogrades this month in fellow cardinal sign of Aries which of course, Mars rules. Although Mars heads backwards approximately every two years, it’s been 32 years since it last did a major retrograde in this sector of your chart. So, to say we are all unprepared is most likely an understatement.

This is your 10th house of ambition, career, achievement, reputation and status. It’s a ‘public’ house where you are on show. Mars will make what is known as a ‘station’ – appear to stand still in the sky at 28 degrees of Aries before moving backwards on Sept 9. It will then station again at 15 degrees of Aries on Nov 13 before moving forward again.

Depending on where your Sun and other Cancer planets are in your birthchart, you will have already worked out that at some point during this retro-cycle, Mars will square your Cancer factors. This makes this retrograde very important for you. And you need to guard your public image and reputation and be aware of this at all times. And also be ready and fearless is asked to step up into new responsibilities or a more prominent position if this is offered to you.

Be a power couple

Your 10th house also rules your partner’s status as well as how high you can climb. So, one aspect of Mars’s retrocycle in here could be you supporting your partner’s ambitions. As far as your own go, this is about the long haul. Using what you have already achieved and gearing up for the next level.

You will also be seeking support for what it is you want to achieve now from your partner if you have one. And during this time if you are single, someone who is willing to do just that will be high on your wishlist. Lucky for you, Jupiter planet of solutions and opportunities heads direct in your 7th from the 13th. The same day that Venus in your 2nd trines Chiron in your 10th. Time to up both your expectations – and your game, Cancer.

But on a public/professional level, and I cannot emphasise this enough – if you are dealing with people in positions of authority, influence, gatekeepers or anyone who represents what the 60’s generation referred to as ‘the man’, bring your best game. Be seen as someone to be taken seriously but who also seeks cooperation. Do not get into conflicts or arguments as all that will result is you being blocked at every turn.

Create that support structure

We won’t experience another retro Mars transit quite like this until 2047! By which time Pluto will have left your 7th house and your opposite sign of Capricorn. Another cardinal sign. So, expect this to impact on your partner if you have one, your spouse and any long term relationship whether this is a working one or a friendship. One of our astrologers can go into the ‘It affects two’ aspects this may bring up for you.

Because you will be needing your partner’s support more than usual when it comes to what you want to do or achieve, you will also be aware of any shortfalls in this area. Please tackle these feelings as they arise rather than allow resentment or hurt feelings to fester away. Mars likes a direct approach. So, if you need more support or someone’s help now – ask for it. Don’t assume they should automatically know!

Know what you want and where you are going, Cancer. And above all, how to communicate this. We have not just any ordinary new Moon but a Super-sized new Moon in your 3rd on the 17th. Unlike full Supermoons, new supermoon tend to pass unnoticed unless an astrologer flags them up for us. You know new Moons are all about fresh starts and new beginnings in a key area. Super New Moons bring maximum potential to the table.

This one is all about getting serious about what you want. And reaching for the ability to convey this. It’s about your message and you, the messenger. This new Moon aspects Saturn and because of this, it’s time to look at how you sell yourself and how you come across.

Have your words worth

So, link this to those themes we already discussed: career, financial security, solid values and what you want for the long term. This isn’t about instant gratification. But investing in your future. If you focus on this, you are going to be amazed at how easily you begin to make real headway towards long term goals. And impress others at the same time.

The Sun’s arrival in your 4th from the 22nd could see you ready to kick bask and reward yourself for what you’ve achieved so far this month. You’ve earned that down-time if things have been full on up until now. But the month’s not over yet! Mercury in here opposes Mars on the 24th which could bring news which cements of validates all you have been working towards so far.

Mercury is set to move off into your 5th on the 27th. This hands you the gift of the gab or simply the flirt factor and the ability to weave a little fit of fabulizing fantasy with your ideas or anything you say. If you are single, this transit should deliver at least one opportunity to try those cute one-liners out for size.

The Venus/Mars trine of the 28th tells you not to censor yourself. It comes just two days before the Sun in your 4th opposes Chiron in your 10th. This is about your self-imposed limits. And speaking out despite them. But simply now being unwilling to play by that worn out rule book that has told you that ‘good’ girls and boys don’t do things a certain way.

Provided you do it with confidence, and with an added pinch of passion and an extra dash of love, there may be no limits to what you may be able to get away with – or convince someone of. So be both the message – and the messenger this September. A little confidence and self-belief goes a very long way now.

In a nutshell: Reach deep inside and access those untapped reserves of confidence and self-belief, Cancer. Who told you ‘good’ girls and boys only do things a certain way? Take a chance – walk on the wild side this September!

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!
