The Moon continues its transit of Cancer until 9:14 AM EDT, when it enters
Sun semi-squares Chiron this morning, and while we may be hungry to learn, grow,
improve, and heal, we may be temporarily low on confidence and worried about
making poor decisions. A First Quarter Moon occurs this evening when the Sun in
Taurus forms a square with the Leo Moon. There is
a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as we feel compelled
to take action. Shortly after, we are made aware of how our actions
affect those close to us, perhaps through trial and error. Whatever
project or initiative we began around the New Moon is now off the
ground, and it may face its first obstacles.
April is particularly strong for friendships, networking, and making
connections, dear Cancer. Any problems brewing in your domestic or personal life
are bound to reach a head in the first week of the month. Imbalances become obvious, and the drama experienced now can push you to make changes in order to
bring your life back into balance, particularly if you've been putting too much
of yourself into your work and responsibilities. You'll be reorganizing your
priorities now. The 5-6 can bring a conflict between time spent on work and with
a partner to a boiling point. Love becomes a little more private or complicated
from the 11th forward, when Venus tucks away into your privacy zone. Through to
the first week of May, feelings require time for processing and sorting through.
During this period, your partnership ruler turns retrograde, further pointing to
a period for looking back rather than forward when it comes to relationships.
The 14-19 can be particularly complicated when it comes to relationships, and it
might also be a period of uncertainty about educational or travel plans. From
mid-month, work and financial matters can turn a corner. Interest and motivation
are renewed in certain projects and endeavors, and you feel more confident about
moving things ahead. The 21-22 is an especially good period for recognizing what
you have, what you don't need, and what you can best do with your resources.
This can be a good time for coming out a winner in competitions, including
business, and for teaming up with others to make things happen.
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
