The Moon transits practical, goal-oriented Capricorn all day, and our
feelings are expressed reservedly and sparingly. We don't want to expose
ourselves to the feeling of being vulnerable. Our sense of responsibility is
stronger than usual, and we aim for efficiency in most areas of life now. Our
view of life in general is realistic. Our careers and objectives are in focus
with the Moon in this practical sign. With
Venus semi-square Chiron today, blocks to intimacy are possible as we focus
on differences rather than similarities in our relationships with others.
This is a month for getting things done, dear Cancer, in many areas of life, and especially your work, organizing your home, and getting going on a fitness program. December is strong for taking care of business, handling details, increasing your efficiency, and for working enthusiastically at tasks that help you get caught up in your work. This is a period when you’re most likely to get positive word regarding your health or job situation. An especially strong period for all of these things, especially new projects and programs, is from the 3-12. Recognition, rewards, or a new job can be in the stars for some. This month, you continue to reclaim your personal power, and you insist that others accept you for who you are. Love, love affairs, and other social activities help to enhance a healthy self image. Recently, career and reputation matters in your life have been changeful and at times unpredictable. Family life can be quite animated this month - there can be increased activity in the home and with family, and a more demanding time overall. From mid-month, you are challenged to find your own unique path - one that reflects your talents and your individuality - and your courage to do so returns. Your ability to take personal and professional risks is stronger now, and so is your ability to take leaps of faith. The Full Moon on the 17th can bring a fruition of a work matter or a secret to light. From the 21st, relationships come into strong focus, but there can be some complications or confusion surrounding a partnership. A close partner could be distant emotionally, or a partnership can appear stalled for the time being. People in your life may seem to be "on the fence". Take your time and avoid trying to rush matters.
there are some ongoing conflicts to iron out in 2013, overall, it's a
stabilizing, positive year for you, dear Cancer. Until June, Jupiter continues
to move through your solar twelfth house, and you pay more attention to your
spiritual life as well as your need for privacy. You can be especially
supportive of others during this period, sometimes to an extreme extent. At
times as well, you might feel like escaping into your own little private world,
where it seems safer and happier. In a general sense, with Jupiter in your
privacy sector, you don't feel especially equipped to make big changes or
choices. By June, you are ready to ask for what you deserve. This is when
Jupiter begins its year-long transit of your own sign. In August especially,
this can cause some friction, possibly because others, especially partners and
close friends as well as family, have grown accustomed to your "laying low" and
the support you've given them with few conditions. However, overall, this is a
positive transit in which you are coming into your own, discovering your need to
express yourself, and drawing upon inner stores of confidence. Freedom is
something you seek, but be wary of the costs of freedom when it's pursued
without necessary attention to responsibilities. This is a good period for
attention to physical fitness and health routines, as you are more aware of how
these positively impact your energy and confidence. Work may be especially
available to you at this time, and you tend to take charge instead of hide from
its responsibilities. Love is likely to be complicated, as you begin to demand a
little more from it. You may be dealing with difficult personalities, and if
you're single, you might feel a lack. However, for many of you, a romance might
stabilize and move to a new level. For those with children, the need for more
structure becomes apparent, particularly with a first child who may be going
through some growing pains. Career continues to be a sort of wild card for you.
Either you are moving towards identifying with a new path, or some changes are
introduced upon you, forcing you to rethink things. Even so, you feel
successful, particularly in the second half of the year, and you bring a
positive spirit to many areas of life, including career. 2013 is about
blossoming and demanding a little more from your life, and you're likely to get
From June forward (and into 2014), Jupiter is in your sign, dear Cancer. It's
a time for strengthening confidence and a solid feeling of moving forward. Your
mood should be especially buoyant, and you are hell bent on leaving the past
behind and moving forward with your life. However, until then, from January to
June, Jupiter is ending a cycle for you, and you might find that some elements
of your life are similarly drawing to a close. It could be a time for saying
goodbye to things that no longer contribute to your growth, and for some of you,
this can be, or include, a relationship. This way, you are more able to start
fresh while Jupiter is in your sign.
While Jupiter's presence in your sign is typically a happy influence, and it
is likely to be for you, it's also a very me-oriented, freedom-seeking period in
your life, so that existing relationships will need to be flexible enough, or
offer you enough room, to grow.
Another big news item for love relationships is Saturn's presence in your
romance, children, and entertainment sector all year (and until 2015). This does
bring a serious energy to your romantic life, for certain, but also a stable
one. With Uranus and Pluto challenging you in recent years, and in 2013 as well,
many Cancers have been through major life changes, such as moves, separations,
new relationships, changing jobs, and so forth. These continue to be in the
cards for you in a general sense, but Saturn's energy this year brings some
level of stability and maturity to the life. You are looking for fun and romance
in your relationships, but you are also interested in long-term attachment, no
matter how you define your relationships.
Cancers are not always forthright about their own needs and intentions in a
relationship, but this year, you are much more inclined to lay your cards on the
table. This is good for you! Don't be afraid to make some reasonable demands or
rules, as you are certainly worth it. By doing so, you are also communicating to
others that you are worth it.
There is an unusual - and positive - connection between two sectors of your
chart that involve love relationships. These are the sector that rules committed
partnerships and the sector that rules more casual love relationships. This
suggests to me that you might be able to redefine relationships so that the more
positive elements of casual and committed relationships can be combined
successfully. This influence has been with you since October 2012.
While committed relationships continue to evolve and sometimes in unsettling
or uncomfortable ways, overall 2013 looks to be strong for love. Jupiter in your
sign forms a pleasing aspect to Saturn in your romantic sector, and this gives
you long-lasting appeal as well as contributes to the successful handling of a
love relationship that in turn boosts your own self-confidence. Travelling with
a lover can be excellent for you both. While some of you could be experiencing
mixed reactions from family members to a partner, the good reactions are
especially good, and these help to strengthen your relationship.
You continue to face people who may be attempting to control or manipulate
you, although this year you are a little more equipped to stand up to it,
particularly in the second half of the year.
More difficult periods can be experienced in May and October-November, when
outside influences can put a strain on a relationship, as well as in August,
when there can be a tug of war regarding power and control in a relationship.
Also, a Venus retrograde period that explicitly impacts your partnership sector
begins in the last two weeks of 2013.
