Cancer

Head in a fresh direction

Try something different

History does not have to repeat itself

This week marks a release into something bigger for you. This could eventually lead to travel. Or simply a chance to explore what lies outside that comfort zone (or is that a rut, Cancer?). Dare you leave this and discover what’s ‘out there’?

Opportunity Knocks!

Mars and Ceres remain conjunct in your take-a-chance 9th this week. And along with Uranus in its ruling 11th on the 25th, offer a path to freedom and learning. There’s so much to explore now. Yes, even from your couch. Understand that opportunity might look different to what you might have thought it would. But a different packaging could just add up to a different and better result.

The past is a place to learn from – not live

Don’t dwell too much on the past either this week. Yes, it may continue to feature due to the big line up in your 12th. As well as the heavy retro weather we’re in. However, avoid regrets if you can. What’s most important is that you don’t create new ones to add to the list. And believe me, we all have them.

Take what you’ve learned from your past choices. There’s an opportunity around you to make a new one. And in doing so release yourself from it. Taking a chance may feature. And it’s by taking chances we usually avoid ‘What if’s?’ when looking backwards.

It’s your right to choose!

Don’t dwell on what you think others may choose or expect you to choose. Mercury and Vesta in your 12th on the 26th and you your right to choose. Mercury meets the North Node in here on the 28th – hours before arriving in your 1st. This is all about releasing yourself from the past – history and yes, those regrets if you have any. The future starts here and you can take it in any direction you want it to go, Cancer.

The past may reappear but it doesn’t have to repeat

Balance the books on your karma

There’s no escape from the truth around love!

This is not your usual soul-house declutter time that you go through every year in the month leading up to your birthday, Cancer. This is going to feel very different for you. You’re going deeper and further back into your past and the mysteries of life than you have ever gone before. We’ve major retrograde weather happening now and there will be unfinished business to attend to. Even of the karmic kind.

You’ve had almost two years of the North Node moving backwards through your 1st house. This has meant the South Node has been transitting your partnership sector. Along with Pluto and also Saturn in here, this should have brought about destiny driven events connected to close relationships. This month could see final outcomes and tying up loose ends if any remain. This can be with anyone close to you – not just a romantic partner.

Your 12th is your house of the past. It’s also your house of secrets, hidden truths, hidden enemies (often the one within) and your relationship to your god – whatever s/he is to you, the universe, a higher power, psychic matters and you links to past lives. Powerful 12th house transits like the ones you have going on this month, will either show you the hidden truth – or see you taking refuge from it by going further into fantasy or denial. As it has a big link to your karma, as does the North Node, it’s about what you have set in motion coming full circle. Your choices and decisions in the past. And not just in this lifetime, but many lifetimes as we repeat patterns until we learn from them.

First, check your chart now to see where the North Node is in it. If you are unsure please speak to one of our astrologers. Pay particular attention if you have the North Node in either Gemini or Sagittarius. Gemini is all about short trips often to familiar places. Sagittarius rules long distance travel and global perspectives. As the North Node backs into your 12th on May 6th, it will move backwards through this house. So, from 29 degrees to zero in other words.

Because of other aspects in the sky which I will get to in a moment, the start of this cycle links you to the past in a big way. The Nodes operate on 19 year and also 9.5 year cycles. In other words, time to look back at these key dates because what went around then is likely to come back now. Either ‘different wrapper, same chocolate’ or in a spooky déjà vu kind of way. Venus the planet of love and which also rules your bank account, will retrograde in here from the 13th. Along with the full Moon in your 5th on the 7th, this could even re-deliver a past lover now. Seeing the truth behind how someone else sees you is another likely outcome. Or finding out their beliefs aren’t in alignment with yours as Venus and Vesta meet in your 12th also on the 6th.

The Nodes can mark the timing of important and destiny-driven life events. Often when we astrologers don’t have your time of birth, one aspect we will look at the Nodes as an indicator of major events. So, look back to look forward as to what this cycle is about to deliver. If you were 18 or over during the following periods, you may see the patterns emerging. Dec 14, 1945 – Aug 2, 1947. Aug 26, 1964 – Feb 19, 1966. Mar 17, 1983 – Sep 11, 1984. Oct 14, 2001 – Apr 14, 2003. And now, May 6, 2020 – January 18, 2022.

Mercury enters your 12th on the 11th. This is an excellent transit under which to involve yourself in any metaphysical subjects. The Tarot, astrology, reincarnation, religion, psychic development. Your intuition will be at a peak and you may just have that spooky feeling that something is going to happen – and then it does! The 11th also marks the day when Saturn will also begin its retrocycle in your 8th of endings, rebirth and transformation. Saturn rules both timing and karma. As well as big lessons and the need to own our actions. Saturn needs to close the books in some way. During its retrograde, it will pay one final visit to your 7th before moving forward and not returning here for almost 30 years. So, this could mark one final go-around, opportunity for commitment and to get it right, karmic debts being cleared or paid back and closure if needed.

The day Venus retrogrades (13th) also sees Mars head into your 9th. Watch closely for any desire for escapism on any level now. Understand this can involve running away in more than one form. Yes, travel is one way you can do this but right now this option is closed. But Jupiter which rules long distance journeys and foreign affairs of all kinds, will also retrograde on the 15th in your 7th. With the ruler of this house backwards too – this should tell you that when it comes to relationships – there is no escape. Only staying and dealing with things. Once and for all. As Buckaroo Banzai said: Wherever you go – there you are.

Other forms of escapism include food, alcohol, legal and illegal drugs, shopping, the internet, binge watching boxsets and yes, denial and delusion. Even when faced with facts we continue to take refuge in the fantasy that they don’t mean what we know they do. So don’t. Karma means ownership which also includes owning our choices. This is how we free ourselves of those sticky cycles. And again, this is something you can do from the comfort of your living room if necessary.

If you need to ask for help during this cycle as this can be a test of the soul and spirit, reach out. Allow trustworthy people into your inner world and tell them what is really going on with you rather than presenting a false façade. Long lost loves, goals tied to far off places, big dreams and distant shores can all reappear. The past is a place we can revisit in order to put it into perspective and release ourselves if necessary. And the Sun’s entry into your 12th on the 20th marks this point.

As does the new Moon in here on the 22nd. This Moon will see the Sun, Moon, Mercury, retro Venus, Vesta and the North Node all in here. Something old is returning. But if this is someone who represents a certain type or situation for you, please think carefully. Especially if your history with them includes you ‘fixing’ or rescuing them, themes around addiction, mental health issues, co-dependency or even trouble with the law. What you need to understand is you are re-visiting the past, but you no longer live there.

Others may receive help or benefits from someone who appears to have no agenda or even desire for repayment (other than paying it forward) in mind. Those who assist you now are people you have helped in the past. You can also consciously choose something different this time around if faced with choices or situations which feel familiar. The 24th sees Mars and Ceres meet in your 9th. Can you head in a direction or grasp an opportunity that represents freedom for you? Or the chance to step free of a cycle or way of doing things once and for all? The decision is yours as Mercury meets the North Node in your 12th just hours before it arrives in your sign on the 28th. Mercury rules ideas and the conscious mind. You are what you think, say and communicate. Your image, style, appearance, message and brand. What is all this 12th house energy teaching you about this? Consciously make an effort to communicate your message in every way you can. Revelations and trips back to your past should show you the results of when you failed to do this. Time to see who you are in a whole new light, Cancer.

In a nutshell: Revisiting the past means learning from it and connecting to your intuition. Look at all the times you ignored its wisdom, Cancer. It’s time to begin again but with a fresh perspective on truth and love.

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!
