Destiny opens a new doorway

Don’t be afraid to try again

Soul contracts fall due

Fate is at work now Cancer as the North Node, that cosmic, spinning, destiny determining vortex, arrives in your 1st this week. Make no mistake, there’s a purpose behind everything that happens now. The people and situations you encounter now form part of your fate and soul agreements fall due. These may particularly affect your career path and what you signed up to do this lifetime. Finding or fulfilling your long term purpose, achievement and recognition are yours to explore and discover. Look for unexpected opportunities or people in positions of authority and influence who can help you or guide you on your path.

Venus heads direct this week in your 4th of home and security while Mercury turns retrograde the very next day – in its ruling 6th. When Mercury is retrograde in a ruling house in our charts we need to treat the Retrograde Rules as gospel as its capacity to create mayhem is increased exponentially. Treat the Retrograde Rules as your playbook from now until not just Dec 6 when Mercury moves forward, but Dec 24 when it moves out of retrograde shadow. However, this retrograde combined with the North Node in your 1st could see past work opportunities reappear or you receive the recognition you have been waiting for. Remember, Mercury retro favours ‘re’ words – revise, review, renew and even return. Mars enters your 9th this week – the house of travel, learning, law and mass media. Mars in here puts you in a bold mood and willing to take on the world. Just ensure if you do, that you don’t ignore the details or have a back-up plan. But don’t be afraid to give anything a second try now. This week is all about remembering that if at first you don’t succeed, try again.

No more waiting on love 

Embrace a new openness 

Get ready to work it! 

Are you waiting on love as November begins, Cancer? A new Moon in your 5th which happens on the 7th is one we normally associate with a new romance and an upsurge of passion and creative energy. Wait to be swept away by that new lover until at least after the 16th when Venus which rules your love life, heads direct once more. But please don’t imagine you are spinning your wheels up until then. An old love or passion could seem like new now. Plus once Venus is direct once more, you’ll step into a flow of luck and abundance that’s been lapping at your feet the entire time. Your 5th is one of the houses that wants you to take a chance. This new Moon triggers the confidence in you to do just that. While Venus remains retrograde, see this as a time to spice up and get creative with what you have – and that includes your existing squeeze if you have one! Others could revive a creative project or pastime which gave them please and allowed them to express themselves in the past. Children, babies, stepchildren or young people may feature and if so, give more of your time to them.

Once Venus is heading forward again, act with confidence and like the star of your own show. It’s a time of chance and speculation. There’s a saying that you must ‘speculate to accumulate’. By this I don’t mean taking the kids’ university fund or remortgaging your home and putting it all on that stockmarket tip! But taking a chance on yourself, your talents or making that first move may be in order as could be an extra lottery ticket (your 5th is the house of lottery and other wins as it rules pleasure). Even a small speculation such as making the first approach whether it is for that job or to that person you are crushing on, could make all the different. Have you watched the film I Feel Pretty? In it, Amy Schumer plays a woman who has so much going for her, but suffers like so many of us, with feelings of inadequacy and lack of confidence. A bump on the head leads to her believing she looks like the media-approved concept of ‘beauty’ that she envies. Of course, she looks exactly the same. Her altered belief however leads her to give her number to a cute guy and apply for the dream job she covets. She is now willing to take a chance and speculate simply because her belief about herself and what she can achieve, has changed. Without giving too much away if you have not seen it, her character arc is all about realising she was able to achieve all of this, all along. But her taking a chance is the perfect illustration of a new Moon in the 5th transit.

Work and wellbeing matters are now very much in focus, so you may want to think about how you can turn your passion into a job or at the very least a side-hustle now Jupiter enters your 6th for the first time in 12 years. You should now have the energy available to take you where you need to go, especially if you have been feeling at a low ebb of late. If you are looking for work or out of work, expect at least one job opportunity to come your way during Jupiter’s stay in this house in your chart. If you were planning on applying for something new over the next month, please be aware that Mercury which rules this sector of your chart, is scheduled to turn retrograde until Dec 6 from the 17th. So, use this time to rewrite your CV or reapply to past employers rather than approach new ones. If you are unemployed, this particular Retro Rule does NOT APPLY to you. All the usual Retro Rules DO apply however and all the more so as this is Mercury’s ruling house. So its ability to create mayhem is magnified. Do allow extra time travelling, reconfirm all appointments and dare I say it – Get It In Writing. Take notes and minutes in meetings. Record what is said. Repeat yourself if necessary. If you are in negotiations over anything or having a disagreement especially over warranties, insurances, defective goods etc – again, create a paper trail and don’t leave it to I said/they said.

Look closely at your routine and whether this is creating order in your life or just a rut. Jupiter in your 6th wants to expand your experience. As well as beneficial job changes, Jupiter can offer you the chance to retrain or expand your skillset while in here. Travel for work or business is favoured over the next 13 months as are journeys for pleasure that are either short in terms or distance or duration. Just remember the rules while Mercury is retro. Expect an increased interest in wellbeing. This is an excellent year to get fitter and experience the great outdoors.  For your full Lucky Jupiter Forecast for– you’ll find it under the forecasts for your sign here on the site.

While Jupiter changing signs is the biggest and most obvious transit of the month, something equally destiny defining but rather less obvious is occurring on the 16th when the North Node, that cosmic, spinning point of karma in the sky, enters your 1st. It’s time for emotional openness, Cancer and to understand that you can do this without losing your sense of self or your boundaries. In fact, emotional openness goes hand-in-hand with the latter. When we have the courage to speak our truth, we have arrived at the point where our boundaries are healthy once more. Self-love and nurturing has replaced ‘putting up’ with something – even if we have done this with the very best intentions. This does hand in hand with no longer waiting on love, but claiming the love we know we deserve.

The Sun’s entry into your 6th from the 22nd asks for clarity of communication and for you to say what you mean and mean what you say. With Mercury still retrograde see this as a time where you can revise and even rehearse that message. Make your health and wellbeing your priority now. If you have been waiting on news around a work or business issue that was set in motion before Mercury headed backwards, then the final week of November could deliver this as the Sun, Mercury and Jupiter all meet.

This month’s powerfully intuitive full Moon appears in your 12th on the 23rd. It will impact Jupiter in your 6th perhaps providing insights into any changes you need to make around your work or wellbeing in the future. It also angles to Mars in your 9th and activates Venus now direct in your 4th of security and Uranus in your 10th of career and status. You are suddenly aware of steps that need to be taken especially when it comes to that work/life balance. If you have been feeling any guilt or hesitation over being upfront about what it is you want or need from others, this will vanish now. You’ll have the confidence to move away from anything that is unnecessarily restrictive – even if this is self-imposed. This month is about looking at what works for you – and what no longer works. You’ll receive the courage to change what doesn’t and you’ll reinvigorate what does and add new meaning to it. Above all, you’ll love your new openness – and so will others. No more waiting on love or doing what you love, Cancer.

In a nutshell: Embrace a new destiny which is founded on you being open about love, Cancer. New work opportunities are on the horizon. Time to take a chance – on YOU!

Cancer 2018 

Life for you is about to get a lot more interesting! You’re moving out of your comfort zone and embracing a revolution in your social zone. Uranus has been in your career sector since 2010! Hopefully, you have had an opportunity to discover your true calling or to appreciate what you and you alone, bring to the table. Have you become the champion of your own ideas? No doubt there have been shocks, wonder, thrills, breakthroughs and even some instability along the way. The ride is not quite over, there should be a crescendo of wonder to finish off 2018 as you end it on a high note. But there are also some spectacular shifts to come. So let’s get started. Your career can launch you into a different direction so align yourself with mavericks, entrepreneurs and influencers. This should be your mindset – open to possibilities.

On 9th Jan the Sun joins forces with naughty and intense Pluto in your relationship zone. Expect an intimate revelation but also to know your worth and power. Much of this year is about you finding your strength in your personal relationships, and you’re likely to be much more feisty than usual. You also know what you want and are clearer about this than you have been at any other time. What is happening in your relationship zone this year and on in to 2019 and even 2020 is not just some once in a 10, 15 or even 20 year cycle. It is a once in a lifetime cycle. Expect not just a transformation in your personal life but to how you love and relate to others. Even the kind of partner you are seeking may change dramatically as you find your own deepest needs surfacing and making themselves known. There’s alchemy happening here. Elements fuse to create a new love dynamic within you. You are changed and therefore so is the way you love – and the kind of lovers you attract.

The total Eclipse of the Full Moon on the 31st January gives you an intuitive taste of a shift occurring in your finance and abundance area this year. When the Full Moon eclipse occurs, it’s the perfect time to let go of any doubts as a symbol, dream or strange coincidence gives you a clue on which direction to take. The new Moon which follows on Feb 15 helps you cast out old shadows and insecurities. 2018 is about self-acceptance and a deep inner healing which leads to a new level of fearlessness. The planets are beavering away to help you transform any issue that is primal. You can conquer all wounds connected to sexuality, life, death, rebirth. Bye, bye ghosts, hello Goddess!

In the spring the Cosmos helps you to commit to a new level of intimacy. Mars and Saturn are giving you true grit. If you’ve felt bullied or put down your warrioress within can handle and overcome it. You’re gutsy with a taste for the profound. Trust your inner knowing on any issues that come up. You might find yourself thrust into the limelight or have to push the boundaries to achieve your dreams, but the Universe has your back. You might find yourself getting into more arguments than usual as you fight for what you want and are prepared to stand your ground. Having said that there’s also an opportunity for daring and intriguing love affairs and all sorts of naughty shenanigans. You may want to explore where you’ve been afraid to tread before. There’s a desire to walk on the wild side, to live just a little bit dangerously especially when it comes to what you might have previously thought of as ‘forbidden fruit’. Whether it is or not now is very much up to you.

On May 15 Uranus shifts signs giving you a flavour of what to expect in 2019. Uranus is a genius, radical who loves to shake things up, get us thinking outside the square and to bring us sudden, thrilling and surprising experiences. When he enters your social zone, he’s likely to bring innovation and necessary disruption. Expect a new tribe to pop up. People from different backgrounds, different professions, different life paths cross yours.  You can become involved in unexpected collaborations – anything from a band to an internet start-up. Your social media profile is strongly influenced at this time. Do you have a website, blog or YouTube channel? Fancy doing a TEDx talk or to repurpose and relaunch your brand, identity or creativity? Are you yourself an idea whose time has come? Uranus puts you in the spotlight, so it’s up to you to then fly. Think out of the box, try experimenting. Adjust your social scene. Branch out into new areas – and watch the magic happen. Uranus moves back to your career house in November for one last visit. What have you learned since he moved forward? Can you bring this innovation to bear before he exits here for good? Think of the pathfinders who have dared to be different and see how you can emulate them even in a small way and adopt an entrepreneur mindset.

When Venus, La Amore, enters your sign on May 19, others find you bewitching as the Goddess of Love encourages you to love yourself first. After all, if you can’t love yourself, how you gonna love somebody else? Or they love you for that matter! You’re seeking harmony, and any troublesome relationships heal now. Looking for a lover or want to boost your cash flow? Venus is in a mood to indulge you. It’s a time to radiate and in return attract.

The most profound day of the year for you is likely to be July 12th when there’s a Solar Eclipse in your sign! The eclipse is giving you a confidence reboot, an urge to redesign your life, radically change your look or head in a new direction beckons. Remember, eclipses initially cover up. So see this as a time when you ready yourself to unveil or reveal a new you, a new lifestyle or a new attitude. Go within and ready yourself for a transformation. Like a caterpillar becoming a chrysalis. This midyear period sees a total of three eclipses occur within a month as we have a total lunar eclipse in your 8th house of transformation on the 27th. The changes will be deep and lasting. Look to what is transmuting, transforming or which you are now ready to reveal. The next eclipse – this time a solar one, occurs at the time of the new Moon on August 11 in your 2nd.  This could potentially be a game changing catalyst when it comes to your abundance and ability to receive it. Let go of any patterns that are not working for you. Look to your emotional connection to prosperity and focus on how to sort out your cashflow. You could receive an intriguing offer and this could reflect your new relationship to both your money and your personal power.

Jupiter is shifting signs in November and firmly taking you to a place of balance. If you look after yourself the Universe will look after you. The next phase is all about your health and wellbeing, as well as service to others. You are given extra juice to sort your mind, body and soul out and to explore the connection between them. If one is out of alignment, this affects the others. Your day job, paid or unpaid work, your duties and responsibilities, bosses, co-workers and your pets if you have them are going to feature over the next 12 months. If you are out of work or seeking to return to the workforce, Jupiter in here should bring you at least one job offer during his stay in here. Those in work could see their role expand and the rewards along with this. If you want to change jobs, again, you should not only receive at least one offer but one that offers you not just better pay but the opportunity to stretch yourself and learn. Travel for work is a distinct possibility with Jupiter in here. Your confidence allows you to aim high and your willingness to tackle any task plus the enthusiasm you can bring to the job means you’re in a position to make a positive impression on bosses or those in positions of influence. People will want to work with you as you exude esprit de corps so collaborative ventures are favoured now.  


This is your house of health and fitness and Jupiter of course rules sport and the great outdoors. As pets feature some of you may adopt a furry family member and walking a dog is a great day to get fit – and meet new people. However, if you are a committed couch potato not even Jupiter can coax you away from the pizza and the boxset! Just be warned that Jupiter loves to expand – and this includes your waistline if you are not careful. Overall, however, Jupiter’s entry into this house usually sees us with more to do, not less. Jupiter wants us to get moving – both in terms of our bodies, and our working lives.  Adapting a new philosophy towards our work and making work an adventure is what Jupiter in here is all about. He favours boldness, taking a chance and above all, aiming high. You can do this by harnessing both Jupiter’s power of success and Uranus’ ability to tap into your individual smarts. You’re pretty well unstoppable for 2018 Cancer. Make your mark.
