Celebrate what truly matters

Let go of what is no longer important

Shine on this birthday, Cancer!

Happy birthday, beautiful Moon child! Time to bring it all home to where your heart is. Your birthday season could see you wanting to celebrate close to home with the people who matter the most. The past is going to play a more important role than usual during this birthday cycle due to Mercury in your 1st entering retroshadow phase from the 20th and Venus in your 12th. You also have Mars and Mercury meeting in here on the 18th and both are about to oppose Pluto, planet of transformation in your 7th. You’re looking closely at partners and love relationships and whether or not they fulfil your need for security and personal fulfilment. Expect an existing one to be re-worked or even the arrival of one that fits the bill for you in the coming year. This is about knowing what you want and being very clear about it and has nothing to do with being needy or clingy.

You want to put down roots and establish something and also understand your priorities are changing. This birthday season hands you the ability to see clearly what’s truly important and what needs to be let go of – simply because it’s no longer true to who you are. Ruler the Moon appears waxed and full just prior to your birthday season on the 17th emphasising the need for wellness and this extends to no longer focussing on what drains you or is simply not worth it. Part of your wellbeing now is a need to shine – even if you are just staying home and celebrating with those you call family. Nurture yourself and deck yourself out in your finery! How much better do you feel for doing that? Time to treat your home self the same as you do when going out as Vesta and Uranus co-join in Uranus’s ruling 11th on the 23rd. Friends and family are what are most important to you now. Share yourself freely whether you’re staying home or celebrating far and wide this birthday.

Wield that personal power like a magician

Pave the way for new love and success

Happy solstice birthday, Cancer!

Many astrologers focus on psychic and intuitive aspects of the 12th house transits which occur immediately before our birthday. Yes, our spidey senses get tingling during this period and being a highly attuned sign, your gift for presentiment is increased. The new Moon in here on the 3rd and Venus’s arrival on the 9th boost these gifts as well as enhancing your creative abilities. What many astrologers often overlook about what I tend to call the ‘12th house soul clearing’ which immediately precedes our birthday, is that this period usually sees our energy at a peak. Why? Simple. Because when our intuition alerts us to something we usually need to follow through with action. The planets will usually ensure we have the energy to do this. The new Moon in your 12th will also hand you the desire to put the finishing touches to projects, tie up loose ends and complete anything that’s been left hanging. You want it all tied up and done and dusted by the time the Sun arrives in your 1st on the 21st and your new cycle begins. So, if anything needs to be said now – you’ll say it. Procrastination is no longer a word in your vocabulary as you’ll fearlessly tackle anything that needs to be done. You have the surging confidence of the Warrior for Self-Love now thanks to Mars in your 1st. Mars not only hands you that extra energy but provides you with that shot of passion you need when it comes to getting a head start on how you want things to be in the coming year. Especially when it comes to you and others. More on this shortly.

Your 12th rules your past and also anything that is hidden from you. This can even be how we can get in the way of our own progress and not realise it. Or it can be about hidden undercurrents in our relationships with others. Expect exposure now thanks to the Sun opposing Jupiter in your wellbeing sector on the 11th and making a tense but ‘Now you see it’ angle to Neptune which rules your 12th, on the 9th. Venus will also perform the same transits as it moves through your 12th – opposing Jupiter on the 23rd and angling to Neptune on the 24th. These aspects could deliver enlightenment when it comes to moving away from what’s been holding you back or heal and repair past wounds. They may also deliver enhanced wellbeing, freedom and benefits from something you set in motion in the past but have been delayed.

When it comes to you and others – and your closest possible ties – you’re demanding nothing short of passion, desire and a fearless approach now. One thing about the run up to our birthdays, we do a soul stocktake and look at our connections. Do we need to perform some gardening here? Does love need our attention and have we taken it for granted? Or are we being taken for granted? Mercury in your 1st from the 4th, opens the door to better communication while Mars gives you the courage to say what you need to say – or alternatively, to make that approach to someone. It is a month to initiate conversations – especially if you have been putting any off. Say what you need to say now especially with partners from the 6th when Juno which rules marriage and traditional partnerships in your sign opposes Pluto in your 7th. If you are tying the knot now, know you have entered into a marriage with this person before. You may also fall into the kind of relationship dynamic you had before too. Good dates for you/me discussions – and remember, these also include business dealings and any issue you need to talk to a close friend about, are the 14th and 16th when Mars and then Mercury oppose Saturn in your 7th, the 18th which sees you in full power mode when Mercury and Mars meet in your 1st, the 19th when Mercury opposes Pluto in your 7th and the 20th when Mars does.  Career dealings are also favoured on the 6th when Chiron on your 10th trines Ceres in your 6th, and the 11th which could hand a wonderful work opportunity thanks to the Sun in your 12th opposing Jupiter in your 6th. Deals could be done and projects brought to a successful conclusion from the 12th to the full Moon in your 6th on the 17th. Again, all these dates occur just prior to the Sun’s arrival in your 1st and your own determination to begin this cycle unencumbered could be the determining factor in bringing everything to a successful conclusion. You are literally beginning again now. Relationships could be starting on a fresh footing and a new sense of wellbeing and renewed energy could propel you forward.

Bring everything to a satisfactory conclusion by the 20th. Not just because this is the day before your birthday season begins. But because this is the day Mercury will begin its retroshadow period in your sign. Yes, it is still moving forward and will in fact, exit your 1st house and enter your 2nd on the 27th. But it is now moving across the part of the sky which it will go back over. So, time to hang fast on lauching, applying for or starting something because the chances are you will end up literally going back over old ground during the actual retrograde and subsequent retroshadow. Time to revise those plans and review what you have already begun instead.

Also, be aware that while Venus in your 12th and the Mercury retro/shadow time may bring up a past love or see them return, this is not a good time to begin a new love affair. Or rather one you hope could turn into something long term. Mars in your 1st amps up your sexiness and wants you to express your passion. It is excellent for heartstarting that existing relationship that may have drifted into the routine or vanilla. To begin something new, please wait until at least after Venus arrives in your 1st which occurs in the first week of July. Believe me, you can afford to wait. This birthday season which commences on the solstice, is going to deliver you one of the best cycles for partnership prospects that you’ve experienced for 12 years. This will occur in December when Jupiter, planet of expansion and luck, arrives in your 7th house.

For now, you can celebrate, review your achievements, set yourself new goals and bask in that well-earned sense of achievement and renewed purpose we get when we have successfully tackled the tasks we have been putting off. Ahead of you now should lie an open road devoid of speed bumps. Juno’s entry into your 2nd on the same day as the Sun enters your sign, should enable you to embrace how you now know you should be treated in your relationships. In other words, Number 1. What you’ve learned could be put to good use especially when it comes to your work and wellbeing on the 23rd when Venus and Jupiter align to bring unlooked for benefits.

That soul house clearing may have extended to certain friendships. Be aware of whether or not some of these still have the meaning they once held for you especially on the 23rd when Uranus in its ruling 11th and Vesta meet. Do you feel you have to ‘keep up’ with the company you keep in some way? Are you on the same wavelength and are the decisions as to what you do, where you go or meet shared – or does one party call the shots? You’ll know now whether you’re allowed to shine in your own right or are simply in the shadow of others. And what do to about it if so thanks to a soul freedom aspect between Venus and Neptune the following day. Mercury in your 2nd from the 27th should have you adding up gains you have made over the past month. Now it’s time to put a life budget into action during the retro/shadow period. The start of your new year should see you with increased confidence in your future. Step into it with your head high and with new expectations you now know will be met, Cancer.

In a nutshell: Step into peak performance you. Ahead of your birthday, there’s simply nothing you can’t tackle, Cancer. Your confidence paves the way for new achievements. Get celebrating.

Get serious about love

Step into a cycle of fresh possibilities

Destiny takes a surprising turn

2019 begins with time for love theme to it. Time to look at your closest connections especially any kind of partnership be it the long term romantic/marriage kind or even the friendship or business variety. It’s more than just a New Year resolution or start of the calendar kind of thing. This is all about what it is time for. Is it time to prioritise love in your life? Have you not been giving a relationship the time it deserves? Or taking the time to do some love housekeeping or address issues? Or if you are single and are no longer happy with that situation, is it time to commit to undertaking a serious search for a soulmate in whatever way feels best for you? You begin the year with a loaded 7th house which asks you to look at or for the love you need. The Sun meets Saturn in here on the 2nd and Saturn rules time, karma and soul contracts. This says it’s time to get serious – one way or another. You also have an important eclipse of the new Moon in here on the 6th – I have more to say about the new series of eclipses that are occurring this year later in the forecast. Remember – eclipses initially conceal and then reveal. This one may mark something in the beginning stages which you may not be able to see just yet. Singles could meet someone now but be unaware of the significance. Wait and see.

Venus enters your 7th and her ruling house on February 3, continuing the love theme and placing you in a position where you can attract what you need to transform your relationships – be they personal ones or even professional ones. Remember, our 7th house represents what is ‘opposite’ us and our ability to attract. So, think your ‘opposite’ number or even your opponent as this house rules our open enemies too. Look at what you are attracting all the way from the start of the year right up until the beginning of March when Venus moves out of here having met with Saturn and Pluto. What has changed? What have you attracted? Remember, we think it is about others but it always comes down to us and what we believe we can attract.

Jupiter the planet of expansion and abundance spends the majority of 2019 in your 6th. Look forward to improvements to your work, the way you work and how your body works are all hallmarks of Jupiter in here. If you are seeking a better paid job, or are unemployed or seeking to re-enter the workforce, then Jupiter in here should bring you at least one opportunity your way during the next 11 months. You’re ready to jump into a new work-flow and you will discover you need a certain amount of freedom in your work now. And even if your work is unpaid, you’ll be looking at ways to change your routine to give you that. Travel associated with your work will feature for some of you. And on a higher level, you’ll be striving to make whatever you do more meaningful. What’s the purpose behind what you do? If you have wanted to upskill or even return to studying, this is the perfect time to enrol in higher education. Questions around your education level could surface now. Are you happy with the education you received? Did you finish school and go straight to work but really wanted to study further? Or did you go on to university but now feel another path calls? Jupiter rules higher education and will have you looking at how this applies to the path you are on. If you are not happy with it, do you need more qualifications to change course? If so, Jupiter invites you to explore the options available to you now.

If your energy has been at a low-ebb lately, then look forward to a return of vitality and joie de vive. Sports, fitness and the great outdoors could beckon. Your 6th is the house of pets so if getting more exercise is a goal some of you may even consider getting a dog. Whatever you decide – and do remember any pet is for life, it is time to stop being a spectator and participate instead. However, Team Jupiter membership is optional. It is always up to us whether we want to join in – or not. If you are a dedicated Couch Pringle unwilling to give up those boxsets, then nothing much will change. Just be aware that Jupiter always expands and this is your house of the physical body. So ensure it is not your reflection in the mirror that does the expanding!

Last year saw the planet Uranus enter its ruling 11th house in your chart. You had a few months experiencing what the planet of rollercoaster rides may have in store for you before it headed backwards into your 10th for one last visit. From March 6 it re-enters your 11th where it will remain for the next seven years. What can you expect? The unexpected is the answer! You have not had a visit from the planet Uranus in this house in your chart in your lifetime. Let go of what you think you know and above all, remain flexible. You could find yourself embracing the sharing economy and discovering new ways to do business, trade and exchange as well as deal with your money. This house and Uranus itself rules not just your friends and professional network but your connection to the collective. This is also the house of the visionary, the entrepreneur and the individual with that one idea which changes the world. So, you have the ability to re-shape not just your world but impact on the wider one too. You’ll embrace new ideas especially those utilising technology. If you have been sitting on an idea for anything from a sharing app to a blog or an ecommerce idea – do something with it. What is more, this is your house of goals – you could find backing if you need it.

On a more personal level, expect a shift in your social circle and to meet new and even unusual friendships to be formed during Uranus’s transit through here. Don’t judge a book by its cover and whatever you do, if you receive an invitation to step into a social circle or experience that is radically different from the ones you usually inhabit, don’t say ‘It’s not my scene’. Your idea of what your ‘scene’ is will undergo a radical shift over the next seven years. The Zen proverb tells us: ‘Cast your line into every pool. Where you least expect it – there will be a fish.’ Go fish in as many different pools as possible during 2019 and you’ll see your goals come within reach in ways you never imagined as people awaken you to a new path – and new possibilities.

Tune in to resonance and intuition across the whole of 2019. Aside from the Leos next door, you are the sign most affected by eclipses. This is of course because eclipses involve the Sun and the Moon and no matter whether it is a solar or a lunar eclipse, both are affected. Leos are of course, ruled by the sun. So, they can literally be ‘left in the dark’ during a solar eclipse. Now, eclipses always do conceal something. We can safely say there’s a ‘cover up’ happening when one occurs. And as the shadow of one eclipse cycle passes, we begin to see what this is.

Where you have the advantage over other signs when it comes to intuiting where the mystery may be concealed, is that while the Moon always plays a major role – i.e. it is either doing the ‘covering up’ or is in the Earth’s shadow, the Moon of course rules our intuition and our dreams. So, here’s the heads-up on the cover-up. Being an intuitive Moon-rule sign you may know on a deep, psychic level what this is. Of course, the information may manifest as a ‘gut’ feeling, or come via a dream or a synchronistic even such as something you hear, see or read that awakens you to what is really going on. Last year we saw an eclipse cycle occur on the Leo/Aquarius axis. This year brings us one on the

Cancer/Capricorn axis. So your 1st and 7th houses are the focus of the eclipses. It’s all going to feel intensely personal and involve you and at least one other person. Again, this does not necessarily mean a romantic partner (but it can). But also close working relationships or friendships.

January 21 will bring us the final Leo/Aquarius eclipse which is in your 2nd of money, assets and self- worth. This will be a total lunar eclipse at the time of the full Moon so this is what we call a ‘Blood Moon’ as the Earth’s shadow gives the Moon a red cast at the height of the eclipse. Look at your money and also any shared resources between you and another – including benefits, pay-outs, maintenance payments, your salary and the ultimate shared resource – sex. That’s the interaction between the sheets if you are in a relationship. Is there something you are not addressing? Does something need to be re-negotiated? And how powerful do you feel when it comes to asking for what you want? Or do you feel there is something going on but are not sure what it is? Remember, eclipses conceal. Tune in to that intuition and then dig deeper.

The new eclipses cycle begins with your birthday season in July when we will see a total solar eclipse at the time of the new Moon in your 1st on the 2nd followed by an eclipse of the full Moon in your 7th on the 16th. This is all about relating and relationships now. If a new relationship appears – remember that eclipses cover up so please take your time in getting to know the person. You are about to enter into one of the best periods you have experienced in 12 years when it comes to partnership matters – so believe me when I say there is no hurry. Trust your gut instincts about someone. Even if your head is saying one thing, if you intuition is telling you something else then please – heed it. December is the start of a game-changer in every sense of the word. Jupiter moves from your 6th and into your 7th for the first time in 12 years. At the same time, Venus will be in here from November 26 bringing you a cycle of love like no other – or even a lover like no other you have experienced before – especially as Jupiter will make a highly charged angle to Uranus mid-December. Accept any and all invitations – no excuses if love is what you are seeking now. You never know who is going to be under that mistletoe. December 26 brings another new Moon eclipse – this one in your 7th. Saturn and Pluto are moving to meet in this house in 2020 pointing to a time of transformational changes when it comes to love during the coming year. Jupiter will want to bring you a larger, bolder, more adventurous and pleasurable love experience. But please bear in mind that if something is broken, Jupiter will not fix it. Especially with the eclipses and Saturn/Pluto in the mix.

As the old year ends and you stand on the cusp of the new one, it will be time to own the knowledge of whether something is working – or not. If something needs to be let go of, then Jupiter can facilitate making this easier than at any other time. For others, 2020 continues themes which began at the start of 2019. Expect a transformation in your relationship status and how you relate during the next 12 months. Existing connections could deeper and be taken to the next level. You explore new ways to bring love and your partner closer. Others could enjoy the benefits of their partner’s success. It’s time to explore what partnership means for you and it begins with you out there in the big wide world. So get connected to that in 2019 if connecting to that one special person is your goal.

In a nutshell: Exciting new people enter your life that could have a major influence on your destiny – especially your love future in 2019, Cancer. Time to connect – to a cycle of fresh potential and new purpose!
