Love is your gift – give freely
Attract someone – or something, lasting
Break free from routine

It’s solstice time and you know what that means, Cancer! It’s your time for extra special relating, love and closeness boosted by Venus in your 5th of romance, pleasure and children. Feeling the love, finding the love is what this festive season is all about for you. The weather outside may be frightful but the love you’re radiating is delightful and just everyone will want to get closer and bask in that warmth, Cancer.

This is your cycle of maximum attraction now so this holiday season and right on into the New Year, look to who or what is opposite you. Although the year is drawing to an end you are in the process of attracting something new to you – new friends, opportunities, pleasure, outlets for creativity, gifts (it is the season!) or even a new love interest.

You are in the mood to create pleasure for those you love – and also to seek it out. Indulge yourself and radiate that feel good spirit. The more you do, the more you will attract in kind.

Mercury in its ruling 6th meets Jupiter in here for the first time in 12 years creating opportunity for you when it comes to your work. You’ll see a clear path to break free of any ruts you may have inadvertently created for yourself in the year ahead.

This happens as the Sun arrives in your partnership sector boosting those feelings of connectedness. Who or what is being reflected back at you as the Moon your ruler, waxes to fullness in your 1st on the 22nd, allowing you to look at what you need to prioritise and what needs to be let go of in the coming year.

This includes satisfaction from both your work and your relationships. The love you feel is on the surface now and you won’t be able to hide those emotions. Give the gift of love – and the present of your presence, this solstice, Cancer.

Old love is in the shadows

What seems new again?

Freedom to work and live – the way you want

Let’s talk about shadow periods this December. And please Cancer, this is not as scary as it may sound so don’t jump to conclusions! Venus has been retrograde recently and is now in forward motion and re-enters your 5th this week. Venus will remain in ‘retrograde shadow’ right up until the first week of January. This does not mean love is on hold however. Yes, it is still not a good time to begin a new love affair despite Venus being in the house which rules this. Not if you are hoping for something lasting. While Venus is in retrograde shadow the path to true love simply will not run smoothly. Eternal triangles, emotional unavailability or just someone blowing hot and then cold, are likely during this period. Do you love yourself enough not to chance your heart but to wait?

While this may not be a time for new love, it is a perfect time for the renewal or reawakening of old loves. And with your 5th house this includes things you love to do as the 5th rules fun, pleasure and hobbies. What have you allowed to lapse that you used to love to do? Has money played a role in this? Your 5th house is the sign of Scorpio which rules sex – an important element of romance, and power money. So, as Venus heads forward into here again, funding could free up access to that old pastime which gave you so much pleasure in the past.

All retrogrades emphasise ‘re’ words and if we focus on these, we steer clear of obvious retrograde and retro shadow pitfalls. Venus rules our money and bank accounts while Mercury which rules business, communication, contracts and commerce, is the other shadow planet we need to be mindful of now. Mercury also turns direct in your 5th from Dec 6 and will remain in shadow period until Dec 24. During this time it will arrive back in its ruling 6th in your chart from the 12th. So, work related discussions, job offers or applications, interviews, study, your routine or even your health – all these matters may go back and forth until Mercury exits the shadow stage.

You do have a very important new Moon in Mercury’s 6th occurring on the 7th. This is all about your work/life balance, your body, wellbeing and routine. We all have tasks ad duties we need to perform. Our day job is the obvious one. And even if this is considered a ‘glamourous’ job by some, it will still have its mundane aspects. No matter how wealthy we are, there’s still stuff we have to attend to. This is a fabulous new Moon for sorting out that routine and for looking at whether or not you enjoy the work you’re doing. How does this affect your wellbeing? Does your job fulfil and stretch you, or does it frustrate and stress you? This new Moon asks you to tune in to what your body is telling you as the state of it is a reflection of how harmonious all these other aspects of your life are. As it’s the end of the year, this is not a good time to apply for a new job and certainly, Mercury retro shadow says unless you are unemployed, hold off for now. But it is a very good time to revise that CV or review that lifestyle and routine and get it working for you once again. Don’t forget, you have Jupiter planet of abundance in here working its magical expansion mojo for the first time in 12 years! There’s a meeting between Mercury and Jupiter happening on the 21st plus you have door opening aspects occuring between the Sun in your 6th and Uranus in your 10th of career and reputation on the 20th. All this says: prepare to make your move and perhaps in a new and totally unexpected direction.

The Sun enters your 7th from the 21st and don’t forget right now you have Saturn and Pluto both resident for the long term in here. Decisions and transformations may have already occurred around long term relationships for many of you. While the process continues for others. Again, with Venus in your 5th and the Sun in your 7th, this would normally be a wonderful time for attracting long term love but this time not until Venus is out of shadow during the first week of January. That renewed love I spoke of earlier could occur between you and your partner as you appreciate all over again, what made you fall for them in the first place. Others could take their commitment to the next level while the return of an old lover could be the star on top of the festive tree for some.

The 7th is your house of attraction don’t forget and whether Venus is direct, retrograde or in shadow, it all boils down to who or what is ‘opposite’ you now. What you attract now – aside from the usual gifts of the season, could well spring from the past while Venus remains in retro shadow. Do watch out for a tendency towards extravagance however – that ‘bargain’ in the Boxing Day sales may not be. The Sun in here wants you reaching out and being with others and if this is not to be a new love, then it is time to reconnect to old ones and this includes old friends too.

The full Moon in your 1st the following day makes this a holiday period of deep resonance and also evaluation. You’re looking both within and without now. Remember, full Moons reflect the energy of the opposite house they appear in. So, when the full Moon appears in our 1st, this shines the light on our 7th. You won’t be able to hide your emotions when it comes to how you feel about others – so don’t even bother to try! If someone asks you what’s up – please answer honestly and don’t say ‘Nothing’ or ‘I’m fine’. This is your opportunity to open up, allow those close to you into your inner sanctum and also air any issues that need it. The light of this Moon makes you realise what relationships are important – and which ones you have outgrown or just don’t support you. If something is out of balance, this will be very clear now and again, this is your opportunity to stop that boat rocking. However – if something is right you will be so aware of it. You’ll enter the holiday season with a sense of renewed gratitude and wanting to show your love and appreciation for what this person brings to your life. So, celebrate with whoever you find yourself with this holiday season and be grateful for the love you already have in your life as before new love and new opportunities light the way ahead for 2019.

In a nutshell: Attracting someone or something from your past – to reviving an old love. December delivers opportunities to relive romance or what you love to do. It all seems new again, Cancer!

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!
