Overview for this Month: Cancer (All)

April 2016

Your larger, long-term goals are in focus this month, dear Cancer, but the details of your daily affairs can be overwhelming at times, making it difficult to feel free enough to attend to your more worldly goals. Even so, there is increasing attention to your social life.

With the Sun and then Venus meeting Uranus in your sector of career and reputation this month, you have a strong desire for authority over your own life and the need to follow your own inner rhythms. Unexpected professional opportunities can pop up for some of you, particularly after the New Moon on the 7th, which can bring a sense of renewal or revival. You can feel on top of things now. Keep in mind that while you can be feeling especially enterprising, this is not the best month for brand-new ventures. Generally speaking, it's time to proceed slowly.

Creative and possibly even romantic opportunities can arise through business affairs in April. You are more interested in the long term when it comes to love, although towards the end of the month, friendship and camaraderie assume more importance.

There can be some complications this month with Mars turning retrograde on the 17th and Mercury's retrograde on the 28th. There can be some tricky matters revolving around work or health matters to deal with. Energy may not be at its best for work and health routines, and you could be feeling sluggish or bored. If so, it's largely about waning emotional energy (motivation and inspiration) which impact your physical vitality as well. Keep in mind that while there can be delays, slowdowns, and muddled situations, your patience now will be rewarded later. Mars is retrograde until June 29th, and for now, is slowly transiting your sector of work and health, prompting a review of these matters. You may be looking to the past for inspiration now, and considering reviving past projects or reminiscing about previous jobs. Complications are likely in these areas of life, but consider that you already have Saturn here pushing for more maturity, simplicity, and organization, as well as most of August and September to straighten out problems in these areas.

Pluto's station on the 18th can have the effect of magnifying relationship problems, but going forward, you're in a strong position to see which areas are tripping you up. The Sun moves into your hopes, dreams, and friendship sector on the 19th, and this can help ease recent performance pressures. You are less likely to put all the pressure on yourself now, and friends can help give you more perspective on any work-related challenges you might be facing. The Full Moon on the 22nd is a light one, but can bring out some wonderfully creative, romantic, and playful feelings that have been long overdue.

April 2016 Cancer Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

April 2016

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until April 19th:

The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar tenth house. Satisfaction and fulfillment during this cycle come from doing your professional best, shining as a responsible and capable person, and contributing to the world in practical ways. You might have a chance to receive acknowledgement or praise for your work or good character now. Landing support from authority figures is easier at this time. Avoid the pitfalls of pride or arrogance standing in your way of success.

From April 19th forward:

The Sun lights your solar eleventh house. The Sun illuminates your sector of friends, groups, and dreams coming true this month. It's a sociable sector of your chart, and that's exactly how you are feeling--happy, light-hearted, cosmopolitan, and social. Group affiliations capture your attention. Connections can be made now and networking pays off, or at least satisfies. Being part of a community or circle of friends and building your social network is important to you at this time. This is a rather happy, goal-oriented cycle. A lively agenda is promised, you're attracting quite a bit of interest, and your energy for making contact with others is high. A stronger sense of community is with you during this cycle. Relationships take on a fun, if impersonal, tone now. Activities with children (especially others' children) may increase. You are more stimulated by all that is unconventional during this cycle, and your ideas are original and progressive now. This is a time to follow your dreams and ideals, and to plant a seed in the form of a wish for the future.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until April 5th:

Venus continues to grace your solar ninth house. During this cycle, your ideals in love are set high. You might become inspired by a loved one now, or someone might awaken a new perspective or way of thinking in you. You could also enjoy a trip, or a new adventure of sorts. In fact, you are attracted to anything that is non-routine and fare best when you are reaching out beyond your usual bounds. You might be attracted to people or even objects that are exotic or different in some way during this cycle. It's a good period for personal charm and attractiveness in general.

From April 5-29:Venus graces your solar tenth house now. During this cycle, you are most charming and well-received on the job. Your responsibility and authority are likeable qualities now, making this a favorable period overall for schmoozing with those in a higher position than you, as well as for negotiations or social activities related to business. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely. You are socially ambitious right now, and success may come though your good managerial qualities or some form of artistic talent, or, indirectly through your marriage partner. People who turn your head during this cycle are those who come across as especially competent.

From April 29th forward:

Venus graces your solar eleventh house now. Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle. Venus here enlivens your friendships and group associations with charm and grace. You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level. If a romance were to begin during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Until April 6th:

Mercury continues to transit your solar tenth house. Career matters are busy at this time, and there can be plenty of thoughts and/or conversations about your profession, your reputation, or your social standing during this cycle. It's a good time to analyze your work tasks and to streamline them or improve your skills. There may be increased contact with the public now, or you might experience an increased need to be heard and acknowledged for your intelligence, skills, capabilities, and ideas.

From April 6th forward:

Mercury is transiting your solar eleventh house. Your mind is bright, alert, and active during this cycle, and you have the ability to come up with unusual and inventive ideas. Sharing your thoughts with others is a prime interest. Others tend to particularly enjoy your conversations during this transit--you are willing to listen as well as add your own thoughts. As well, your ability to grasp unusual subject matter and to intuitively understand what others are trying to say win you some brownie points! You could also do a lot of thinking and musing about your own happiness and long-term goals.

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of personal communications in general as well as communications about the past because Mercury rules these areas of your life. Your intuition usually serves you very well, but may not be up to par for the time being. Take care when it comes to presenting ideas, writing letters, and any detail work. You may not be seeing the whole picture.

Occurring in your solar eleventh house this time, extra care should be used when communicating with friends. You may find that communications with friends or with groups can easily become sticky during this cycle. Group meetings may be postponed or cancelled, and friends may be uncommunicative or giving off mixed signals. On the other hand, old acquaintances may appear during this cycle, or you could be thinking about contacting an old friend. This may be a good time to do so. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with friends and associates during this cycle; or, better yet, take this time to rethink concerns and grievances before talking about them prematurely.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29

All Mars retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of your career, professional life, ambition, public relations, and your reputation because Mars rules these areas of your life in your solar chart. Stalling, snags, challenges, or seeming setbacks might alert you to the need for re-organizing your energy and enthusiasm for these matters, for re-assessing goals, or for changing plans.

From April 17th to May 27th:

Occurring in your solar sixth house this time, enthusiasm for your work or health regimes, or for work projects and daily routines, could wane perhaps due to setbacks or stalling. Work itself could seem to be less straightforward or satisfying. New initiatives with these matters may appear less exciting, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in these areas of life. For some, there can be much preoccupation with your health or work endeavors, and possibly frustration with daily routines. Watch for pent-up anger and passive-aggressiveness on the job. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now. This Mars retrograde emphasizes practical and work matters. How you organize your time is in question now.

Overview Horoscope:

Your larger, long-term goals are in focus this month, dear Cancer, but the details of your daily affairs can be overwhelming at times, making it difficult to feel free enough to attend to your more worldly goals. Even so, there is increasing attention to your social life.

With the Sun and then Venus meeting Uranus in your sector of career and reputation this month, you have a strong desire for authority over your own life and the need to follow your own inner rhythms.

Stalling, snags, challenges, or seeming setbacks might alert you to the need for re-organizing your energy and enthusiasm for these matters, for re-assessing goals, or for changing plans.

Occurring in your solar fifth house this time, enthusiasm for a romance or creative project could wane perhaps due to setbacks or stalling. A relationship with a lover or a child could become more complicated or possibly exhausting. Desires can be hard to read for existing relationships - both yours and those of a lover. There can be a change of heart or you could be questioning what you've been pursuing in love, and a new approach becomes necessary. There could be waning interest in a hobby or a return to an old one. Some of you could be excessively preoccupied with a love relationship. New initiatives with fifth house matters may appear less exciting, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in fifth house areas of life--creativity self-expression, recreation, children, and romance. Caution and perhaps anxiety or confusion begin to dominate. You might feel less confident or you could lack motivation now. Watch for pent-up anger, frustration, and passive-aggressiveness with a lover or with your children, if applicable. Refocusing, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now.

April 2016

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until April 9th:

The Sun continues to shine its light on your solar ninth house now. This is a cycle in which you seek to expand your experiences and awareness, whether through philosophical thinking, higher education, travel, or simply activities that take you away from your everyday routines. You may feel a little restless if you don't find ways to explore. It's an excellent period for looking at your life from a different perspective--a broader one--whether you initiate this process or you make contact with others who stimulate you to think about your circumstances differently. Your energy is strong, open, and friendly right now, you come across well to others, and you are a little bolder and adventurous than usual.

From April 9th forward:

The Sun illuminates your career and reputation sector. More than any other time of the year, your focus is drawn to your "place" or standing in the outer world, and your reputation. This is the time when you are more interested in, and focused on, accomplishing something important. Your competency is something that you are especially sensitive to during this cycle. You want to shine. Your vision is practical right now, and you want to see tangible results for your efforts. More contact with authority figures is likely during this period. Recognition is likely to come your way whether you ask for it or not, and the responsibility that comes right along with it! Do what you feel is right, keeping in mind that you are at your most visible during this period in the year.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until April 22nd:

Venus continues to grace your solar ninth house. During this cycle, your ideals in love are set high. You might become inspired by a loved one now, or someone might awaken a new perspective or way of thinking in you. You could also enjoy a trip, or a new adventure of sorts. In fact, you are attracted to anything that is non-routine and fare best when you are reaching out beyond your usual bounds. You might be attracted to people or even objects that are exotic or different in some way during this cycle. It's a good period for personal charm and attractiveness in general.

From April 22nd forward:Venus graces your solar tenth house now. During this cycle, you are most charming and well-received on the job. Your responsibility and authority are likeable qualities now, making this a favorable period overall for schmoozing with those in a higher position than you, as well as for negotiations or social activities related to business. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities to your career.

You are socially ambitious right now, and success may come though your good managerial qualities or some form of artistic talent, or, indirectly through your marriage partner. People who turn your head during this cycle are those who come across as especially competent.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Until April 20th:

Mercury transits your solar tenth house. You are likely thinking a lot about your career and business matters, or your career requires more communication than usual during this cycle. You speak with authority during this period, and you are more accountable than usual for what (and how) you communicate. Your ideas may come into public view now. Use the power of words to influence authority figures. This is an excellent period for developing career and professional plans or strategies. You may be turned to for advice or for your opinion on important matters. Although approachable and ready to communicate, you are less inclined towards chatting about frivolous matters now. You tend to think about your position or standing on a professional level more frequently during this cycle. You are likely doing some multi-tasking regarding career and business matters. Negative use of this influence would be to worry unnecessarily about your reputation and responsibilities.

From April 20th forward:

Mercury is transiting your solar eleventh house. Your mind is bright, alert, and active during this cycle, and you have the ability to come up with unusual and inventive ideas. Sharing your thoughts with others is a prime interest. Others tend to particularly enjoy your conversations during this transit--you are willing to listen as well as add your own thoughts. As well, your ability to grasp unusual subject matter and to intuitively understand what others are trying to say win you some brownie points! You could also do a lot of thinking and musing about your own happiness and long-term goals.

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of personal communications in general as well as communications about the past because Mercury rules these areas of your life. Your intuition usually serves you very well, but may not be up to par for the time being. Take care when it comes to presenting ideas, writing letters, and any detail work. You may not be seeing the whole picture.

Occurring in your solar tenth and eleventh houses this time, extra care should be exercised when communicating with friends, superiors, and co-workers. You may find that communications with bosses and co-workers, and other professional matters, can be tricky. Strive to be as clear as possible so that you are not misunderstood when dealing with the public. Put off making career decisions as much as possible for the time being. You may be re-thinking things regarding your life path, but it's best to think rather than act for now, as your judgment may be compromised. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with authority figures, children, and intimate partners during this cycle; or, better yet, take this time to rethink concerns and grievances before talking about them prematurely.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29
