What is shed makes room for something new

Love needs a new role

Recast the past and reframe the future

You are another sign who is going to feel as if it is their birthday all over again this week, Cancer. Those Geminis next door are embracing a feeling of lightness and much needed release from restrictions. For you, there’s a soul rebirth happening now which could see you transcending limitations. And also feeling brand new, freshly minted and ready for something new.

Fly free

When your ruler the Moon is full, it tugs you on a deep soul level. In your 8th, this is asking for a shift. You to shed an old self like a butterfly sheds a chrysalis. So, as it appears in your 8th on the 3rd think: shed, shed, shed.

This day also has Mercury meet Vesta in your 1st while Mercury opposes Saturn in your 7th. You’re in the final stages or even days, of a key stage in your relationship with someone. This does not necessarily mean an ending so don’t panic! You could be taking things to the next stage or entering a new, long term partnership with someone. Be it professional or hearts beating as one, you do need to ensure that all is equal moving forward however. Vesta in your 1st isn’t about relaying outdated roles even in long term unions. And certainly not in new ones.

The now you determines your future

There’s a fabulous opportunity arriving courtesy of Venus and the North Node in your 12th. The Nodes link us to the past. Or even themes repeating in family karma. The 5th sees Venus meet the North Node perhaps bringing someone or a situation from your past full circle. Jump into your time machine, floor the gas to 88 mph and go back in 19-year increments if you are old enough for clues.

The difference this time around however is you. That shedding is all about not accepting the same old, same old just because it feels familiar. Feeling as if this week is a fresh start goes hand in hand with this as Mercury moves into your 2nd on the 5th letting you know you can attract what want. While Venus arrives in your sign on the 7th intent on showing you that you can cast yourself in whatever role you want for the future.

Glam up for love

The planets represent archetypal energy. Call this cosmic force if you like. Depending on where they are and the angle they make to our natal planets, these are triggered. So, the energy of Venus in your 1st is all about glamour, beauty and love. Time to embody this. And to shed anything that just doesn’t reflect that, Cancer.

Welcome to your astro-after party!

Have that conversation

Get glamourized

Your birthday season may have be re-gifted to those Leo’s next door and then the Virgo’s down the astro street later this month. But August may feel like it is still your birthday on some level, Cancer.

For one thing, Mercury now very much direct helps with the feeling that life has regained its momentum. For another, you’re still experiencing the love moves from that line up in your 7th. Love or one particular connection remains at the centre of your thoughts and even topics of talk at least until the 5th when Mercury leaves you sign for your 2nd.

Is it time for serious love?

From the 1st until the 3rd, Mercury will oppose first Pluto and then Saturn. Saturn is back for a final visit to your 7th before exiting for good later this year. Pluto asks you where the transformation still needs to take place between you and another? Or even within with yourself. These two planets in our 7th always tell us there is work to be done around relationships.

Plug into the source

But here’s that birthday bonus for you, Cancer. You have Venus which rules your 7th in your sign from the 7th . Become the love or the love change you are seeking to create. Clothe yourself in glamour. The great thing about planetary energy is that it is archetypal. Now, the ancients associated each planet with either male or female energy. Or sometimes a mixture.

Energy is however energy. We don’t think of electricity of having a gender for instance. And archetypal energy is the same. It doesn’t matter what gender we identify with or what the planet itself is associated with. Its energy is gender fluid.

Don’t define love by old standards

So, with Venus think beauty, creativity, gorgeousificiation, showstopping moves, doing or saying it with love, diplomacy, glitter and timeless glamour and style. Again, think anyone from Audrey Hepburn to Cary Grant to Billy Porter redefining red carpet lush for all of us. Beauty is fluid. So is love to that is the archetype you are embracing and the energy you have to work with now. What your personal take on this?

Be your version of beauty and love. Who can resist, Cancer? Certainly not the old boy network archetypes of Pluto and Saturn that’s for sure. But before you become the embodiment of what you want to attract in, we have a full Moon in your sector of transformation on the 3rd. Is this your preparation for launch? This is your house of ‘power’ money which Pluto rules. Where changes, endings and re-birth occurs.

Re-write the rule book

It rules what we share and is shared with us in return. And also, the T&C’s which go along with that. You may be reviewing these now. This full Moon asks if the arrangements you have with others – be they your salary to who makes the decisions or even takes out the trash, are equal – or not. And if not, how powerful do you feel in negotiating something better?

This Moon can either send you scurrying back to your shell in search of emotional safety and a a dish of ice cream. Or it can have you tackling something you’ve been putting off for some time. Which is it to be, Cancer? Goddesses of Gorgeousness don’t get scared. They know how they should be treated and aren’t afraid to ask for what they want. It goes with the territory after all.

This full Moon should quite literally leave something done and dusted and put behind you. You’ll feel both relief and release. Not to mention a feeling of achievement and surprise as it could turn out to be easier that you thought.

Days of future past

Your 12th is where your past lives. Not just last week but days of futures past in the form of past lives and karma. The North Node in your 12th gets even more karmically charged as it links you to patterns not just in this lifetime but across the multiverse of lifetimes. New karma, old karma coming full circle, the chance for another go around with some new. Or someone returning. Watch for themes going back 19 years to 2001-2003 or 19 before that if you are old enough as Venus meets the North Node in your 12th just prior to arriving in your sign on the 7th.

Vesta into Venus’s ruling 2nd on the 12th is all about being able to say ‘Show me the money!’. Asking for your worth. Most importantly in how you are treated and what others expect of you. Especially if this is a role you have not assigned yourself but has been delegated to you simply based on your gender or family position.

Get talking

If you need to speak up about something or simply want to craft your very best presentation or case, wait for the period from the 15th – 17th when the Sun and Mercury in your 2nd trine confident Mars in your status setting 10th.

The new Moon in your 2nd on the 19th is one of the best for new beginnings. This is another reason why I said it may seem as if you are getting an extra-large bite of that birthday cake this year Cancer! And can have seconds too. This new Moon tells you to value its energy. Don’t waste it. It can begin to show you areas where you need to focus your energy. But you won’t get results unless you do.

Strike out in a fresh direction

Again, lucky you has Mars and also the North Node at your after party both making beneficial angles to this new Moon as it appears. This extra-rare alignment means you have the confidence and desire to follow through with that focus. And the North Node promises destiny defining results if you do. Or even fate stepping in to assist you in some way.

Mercury moves off into its ruling 3rd from the 20th and the Sun follows two days later. Your focus could shift from one relationship to something wider. Work, business, writing, wellbeing, communication and also meaning it. Promises in other words. You’re good at those, Cancer. And the thing is you can’t bear anyone who breaks theirs.

Actions say all you need to know

You’ll see who keeps their follow through and who is simply all talk and not much more as we head into the final week of the month. Venus will align to first Jupiter in your 7th on the 25th, one of the best love days of the year. Followed by a free-flowing trine on the 27th. The 30th sees it oppose Pluto – which is also the day when Mercury will oppose Neptune in your 9th. Higher, brighter, more beautiful love expressions are possible now.

Mercury also trines both Uranus in your 11th on the 25th and then Jupiter on the 29th. Love is somehow taking you towards freedom or something higher. If you are seeking answers around love, expect these to be answered. Perhaps not in an obvious way because that’s not how spirit works. But through dreams, symbols, synchronicities and simple flashes of insight.

This could be a slow certainty or a sudden revelation. But whatever form it arrives in you know it’s the truth. This could be a magical rekindling of love or taking an existing connection to another level. Or else the clarity of what you need to now do to go find this. Either way, it all feels like the party’s continuing – all August long, Cancer.

In a nutshell: your birthday season may be over. But let’s get this after-party started! Intuition and insight fuel new beginnings in love. Destiny has a plan for you this August, Cancer.

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!
