Mercury's alignment with Mars this morning is a good
influence for motivated, energetic work, particularly related to communications
and the mind. We may want to get right to the point, so that communications may
be on the insensitive side, but also direct and clear. With Mercury retrograde,
we might renew an interest in handling an old problem or reviving an old
project. The Sun semi-square Venus can stimulate feelings of discontent or a
sense that we're missing something, and can really wind us down after the
intense energy of the morning. However, a trine between Venus and Chiron this
afternoon provides us with nice opportunities to open ourselves up to learning
and growing through our relationships. We are inclined to see less fault in
others, we're open to new ways of interacting, and we might be seeing more
potential in one another.
May involves good energy overall for networking and the support of
friends, dear Cancer, but also a strong theme of introspection, preparation, and
attention to physical and emotional needs. The Full Moon on the 3rd can bring a
romantic or creative matter to your sudden attention, and emotions can be
overflowing as you explore your feelings. There may be a need to deal with a
tricky work or reputation matter on the 4th. Lovely Venus moves through your
sign from the 7th forward, boosting your personal appeal. While you are
certainly attracting positive, and often romantic, attention with this transit,
your heart may not be ready to fully process it quite yet. A lot is going on
inside of you and under the surface, but this air of unavailability may very
well boost your appeal further. You are seen in an especially good light around
the 16th and 27th. These are also good days for interviews or presentations.
There can be problems with misunderstandings at work this month, and
inconsistencies to deal with that end up taking too much of your time, intruding
on leisure time as well. Some of you could be taking sick days or time off, and
the need to be stricter with your schedules can emerge. Demands on you can feel
heavy at times, but it's vital that you find ways to meet your responsibilities
and tend to health and wellness, and this can involve cutting out wasteful
activities. June is a strong month for money, and the adjustments you make this
month will go a long way towards improving your prospects. Tame overspending,
deal with disagreements with a partner, and put yourself in the position to
achieve, earn, and perform.
The year ahead brings opportunities to build up your resources, use your
natural talents in creative ways, expand your interests, learn new things, and
put more effort into health and fitness routines, dear Cancer. Jupiter's travels
through your money and values sector until August is designed to allow you to
get comfortable. Particularly from April 10th to June 30th, this is a time for
building up your resources. There can be a nice feeling of abundance or improved
fortunes now. Some of you are making more money, and others are settling in and
finding ways to make life easier. You might acquire a new item/valuable that
you've always wanted. It's a strong time for asking for a raise and building up
stock. It's also an excellent period for drawing upon and honing your natural
talents. Although it feels like a lovely time to spend, and in fact it is, make
the most of this period by putting some money away for rainy days.
Home and family life continue to improve, although you may need to work to
make this happen by finding a better balance between the demands of the outside
world, particularly career, and the needs of your personal life. There are great
rewards for doing so. An eclipse in April will give you the cosmic push
necessary to turn your attention more strongly to any neglected areas in your
domestic life, and can bring some surprises and turnarounds in the process. Work
and partnership are connected this year and next, and some of you may, for
example, meet a partner through work/services, or work with a partner. Towards
the end of the summer, you'll begin to feel a stronger desire to connect,
mingle, learn, and communicate. Opportunities begin to open up that allow you to
do more of these things, to get around (transportation improves, possibly with a
new vehicle for some), and to take on new interests. It can be a very busy time,
mostly happily so, and this extends until September 2016.
The second half of the year can be loaded with daily activities, projects,
and activities. It's a good time for marketing, sending out resumes, going on
interviews, writing, studying, and learning. You'll only need to watch out for
saying too much too soon, and filling up your schedule to the point of overload.
In fact, Jupiter is encouraging you to take on more, and Saturn wants you to
simplify your daily life. While this conflict is more likely to play out in
2016, get a jumpstart on this now by striving for a better balance. Your desire
to expand your contacts and your mind is strong, but you also need to organize,
structure, and simplify your daily routines in order to stay healthy and
adjusted. More is not always better - keep this in mind.
You've been attracting intense relationships into your experience in recent
years, and this trend continues. At times, issues of control or power, as well
as fear and trust, are in full play when it comes to partnering. This trend can
be most problematic in February-March, when conflicts over values, money, and
career can be at play, and especially the end of June to mid-August. In fact,
some of you could be ending a significant relationship in the summer, or a
relationship could be tested then. From October forward, however, excellent
energy is with you for significant relationships. News or information give you a
new perspective, and communication can lead to bonding. Some could meet someone
special through work or studies/projects, and there may be growth in commitment
or devotion in an existing partnership. Your views toward love and commitment
can transform. From November forward, there can be concerns about education or
necessary skills in order to succeed in your work. Some of you could be faced
with a choice to travel or to take a new job, for example, or the desire to
escape and experience more from life conflicts with your daily responsibilities.
Personal appeal is especially strong from May 8-June 5, when coveted people and
things seem to come to you, and when your decisions about love and money might
even make some waves. You have a lot more courage this summer with Mars blazing
through your sign (June 24-August 8). This is a time for pursuing your desires,
not for waiting for things to come to you. Even so, from the last week of June
to mid-July, you could be especially brave and acting out of character. You
could make very impulsive decisions during this period - watch for over the top
behavior, particularly in your career or with people in authority.
Jupiter continues to
move through your sign until mid-year, and this is helpful, freeing energy. This
may not be a time that is heavily oriented towards relationships, but the
efforts you put forth towards self-improvement can certainly benefit you in all
areas of life, including romance and relationship. You are coming into your own,
and it's a year of self-discovery in many ways.
You are focused on new beginnings at this time in your life, and rightfully so. You are not as interested
in what happened in the past, preferring to move forward without restrictions,
and that's a lot to say about a Cancer, known to be quite attached to the past.
Recently, you've been reinventing yourself, and in the process, there may have
been some people already in your life who have felt a little insecure about the
changes you've been making. Do what you have to do to propel yourself forward,
but be sensitive to those you hold dear. For the most part, though, people are
really enjoying you. You are likely to get a lot of positive feedback, and
you're sure to feel the love coming your way even if it's not explicitly stated.
Even so, there can be some rocky patches. In January, Venus is retrograde in
your partnership zone all month. You could feel stuck in the past regarding
relationships at this time, even with Jupiter encouraging you to look ahead.
Others may be a little cool with you. For some, an ex can return. Mars
retrograde from March to mid-May can serve to confuse desires.
In late May, Jupiter in your sign harmonizes with Saturn in your romance sector.
Because Saturn is also the ruler of your partnership sector, this can be an
especially strong time for strengthening and enjoying a relationship...cont'd
