Plans get a juice shot

There’s no place like home

Deal or no deal, Cancer?

Those decisions you may have had to put off or the news you have been waiting for – all get the green light this week as the direct planet drought breaks. Yes, retro weather is ending – but gradually. You still need to allow for those delays and back and forth dealings. But Mercury stationary direct in its ruling 3rd from the 2nd offers you relief and a welcome release into forward motion once more. Ceres also arrives in your 3rd this week promising a new deal on the table if that has what held you up.

Joint property decisions, relationship and career matters and anything which involves you and one other person are favoured as Venus trines Pluto in Venus’s ruling 7th (26th). Mercury performs the same maneuver on the 27th indicating that something which has been stalled or undecided now receives the fuel it needed to move forward once more. You may be the initiator, Cancer.

There’s also no place like home for you now as we head into October. The Sun warms your all-important 4th house of family and security. It wants you to attend to your needs – and those you care about. If moving questions been the cause of you spinning your wheels, they receive answers now. As could career matters as the Sun and then Venus in your 4th will oppose retrograde Jupiter in your 10th on the 26th and 1st respectively. I could add this brings a retrospective look at what you need to establish for your future. Plans move forward when it comes to career and home.

You are intuitively drawn towards what you need to sustain you. What adds that glow, that sense of safety and belonging. This can be varied but oh-so-meaningful to you, Cancer. What you enjoy takes precedence. Spending more time at home, wrapping yourself in feel good emotions by drawing those you love closer, indulging in the things you love to do and above all, looking at those needs now and for the future. Bring it all on home now, baby!

In a nutshell: Planets in your 4th house bring your yearly emphasis on all things close to your heart, Cancer. Home, security, family, safety. With Mercury now direct this week, move those plans heartward – and homeward bound!

You saw the sign – don’t ignore it

Be ready for home truths

Talk isn’t cheap – it’s your love currency

What emerges for you under the light of this month’s full Moon (10th) in your area of freedom and sensitivity may bring something into sharp focus that you have been ignoring. Or maybe you’ve had that niggling feeling building for a while, Cancer? You know full Moons for you are always a very big deal and this one is no exception. As usual, there’s more in your Full Moon in Pisces Moonscope. But to get a head start on that this full Moon delivers, read on!

However, just because an issue may now be sharply illuminated does not necessary mean now is the time to discuss it. Especially as this day sees Mercury stationary retrograde in your 4th. It could be hitting close to home for you. There’s no denying that. Perhaps you feel restricted, confined or simply taken advantage of you. You may justifiably feel that something is skewed all one way and be looking for the solution to restore some balance. But now may just not be the time to confront the issue. If you can, wait until the months end.

The reason is Mars now in your 12th which can have you acting in haste without considering the consequences. Or the other party’s reaction. You may feel let down or even under attack. I am not saying that this is all not rooted in fact. Just that discretion may be the better part of valour. You may need to withdraw and cool down if temperatures run high. There may also be more insights to emerge. So, take your time with your responses. By the end of the month when Venus in your 3rd from the 5th, meets retro Mercury in what is its ruling house on the 26th, you’ll have the correct response to hand.

Do ensure others take you seriously however. When you do state your feelings and intentions, try to be matter-of-fact and don’t get over-emotional. Whether you are dealing with matters on the home front or professionally. This certainly applies on the 18th when retrograde Mercury opposes retrograde Jupiter in your 10th.

That Venus in your 3rd is your secret superpower as it hands you diplomacy and also the ability to craft what you say with care. And wait if necessary so that your words don’t trip you up. Your beliefs may be tested this month. Do you have faith in a higher power? Or your own ability to make the right decision? Don’t let self-doubt hold you back. And please, if you feel there are underlying themes around gaslighting or control, you do need to look closer.

You may be keeping things to yourself for a while longer. And that’s fine. Go deep and don’t be afraid to sift through what you feel and also to journey back to the past to see when these kinds of feelings first surfaced. And who or what triggered them. If there is a pattern emerging, this will help you chart the best way forward to break free of it.

Time to move that energy into the magical part of your life that means the most to you, Cancer. I am of course talking about your 4th house of home, roots, family and security. The Sun arrives in here on the 23rd when it meets retro Mercury just hours before Mercury backs into its ruling 3rd and encounters Venus in here on the 26th. Moving back towards something that sustains, a project or seeing valuable potential around your home, technology or the desire to move could be likely. As could hearing from someone from your past. Just remember, due to the intense retro weather we are having right now, this is a time for rebooting, revision and realignment rather than the start of something new. Yes, you can plan but again, wait to launch.

The new Moon in your 4th on the 25th represents the start of a new cycle of satisfaction for you and also the ability to direct your own path. Family matters – whether your biological family or the one you have created for yourself, take precedence. As could looking at ways to earn money from your home. This new Moon also whispers a secret which is the success you may be seeking in the outer world stems from inner changes. So, take all the time you need with this via meditation, therapy, self-help, the Tarot etc. For more see your New Moon in Libra Moonscope.

Creating a home you love is a theme once Venus lands in this house. Just be aware that with Mercury retrograde, this isn’t the time for big ticket items unless something is broken beyond repair. Also Venus can lead you to exceed your budget as its goals are aesthetics and beauty. Finding the beauty already there and enhancing it, is your best strategy for this Venus while Mercury remains retro.

Love may be quiet and you’ll want to spend time at home with your lover. Singles may be more focussed on their career this month and that is where you should direct your energy for now. October will sparkle with romantic opportunities so don’t think you’re missing out. Ceres arrival in your 3rd at the end of the month is your cue to speak or initiate that discussion if you have been holding back or waiting for the right time. It is now.

Ceres in here favours deals and compromises and if one can be crafted, you’ll succeed beyond both parties expectations. Ceres in here favours writing, teaching, communications, advertising, sales, PR and anything to do with the internet. It also allows you to sort out disagreements with siblings or neighbours if these have occurred. Talk isn’t cheap for you as you head into October, Cancer. It’s your main currency when it comes to getting the outcome you desire.

In a nutshell: By now you know better than to ignore those gut feelings, Cancer. September asks you explore why you have them. But then wait for your moment to act. Home truths lead to simply more satisfaction for you. And those you love.

Love is the question and the answer for you this year, Cancer. So ask the right questions to receive the reply you’re seeking. Lucky Jupiter has you in its boundless embrace as it continues to work its ruling 9th for you for half the year. While opening doors to success and achievement wide in your 10th!

You crave love, feel loving and want a deeper, passionate, caring and more committed relationship. Love is the question and the answer with Pluto making its long term transit of your 7th, Cancer. It continues to be the alchemy and the game changer for you in ‘22. However, please hold fire on launching yourself out into that New Year love-sphere as 2022 begins and don’t swipe that dating app just yet.

The year begins with Venus retrograde in its ruling 7th in your chart. Juno which rules marriages and all long term commitments co-joins with Pluto in here on Jan 24. This is all about the long term with an existing double act. It asks if you are in or out? Playing for keeps or just for fun? Or if the other party is. Adding to this is Mercury also retrograde in here. So, if you are in a relationship this could well be time for that ‘Where are we going?’ talk or simply taking that next big step.

Don’t avoid discussions around this. Maybe you have been shying away from them because you are afraid of the answer you will receive. That’s why love is both the question and the answer for you. All this retrograde activity plus the two meetings between Venus and Mars and Mars and Pluto say it’s better to know now. And if your answer isn’t what you wanted to move on. For those of you who are lucky enough to be with the right one, this can see both of you commit to a goal or fresh start you are jointly and passionately invested in. This can equally apply to a working relationship to.

Once Venus is direct again and meets Mars for the second time in your 8th on March 6th this ushers in your time for hot, hot love! March also sees all that retro weather blow away like the misty illusion that it is. It’s time to engage fully with the world and to get ready to experience something new and more fulfilling. Not just with love but all areas, Cancer.

No more illusions between you and what you want now. Or doubts about your ability to go for it. You have one of the best transits for opportunity, freedom, luck and big love occurring in your 9th on April 12 as Jupiter and Neptune meet in here for the first time in over 165 years. This is Jupiter’s ruling house and both planet’s ruling sign. Travel, foreigners, higher learning, writing, publishing, the mass media, the law, the great outdoors, spiritual beliefs, large animals especially horses, the ocean, overseas people and places may play a role. Leave what you know behind you. Go where the tides of luck take you. Time to take a chance. Where does the magic happen? Outside your comfort zone, cancer. Pack your suitcase either literally or on a psychic level and prepare to leave it.

This meeting is closely followed by a path setting full Moon in its ruling 4th which is one of the potentially most direction determining for the year. Fix your focus on freedom and purpose. This year’s eclipse axis is across Taurus and Scorpio – your 11th/5th houses. This is about friendships, networks, connections and goals. Romance, children and creativity/pleasure. Your resources and your values. What you share and what is shared with you in turn.

Venus will encounter Jupiter the day the first eclipse triggers this axis on April 30. This day brings an eclipsed ‘Black’ new Moon in your 11th and Venus’s ruling sign of Taurus. The term ‘Black’ Moon isn’t anything sinister. It simply describes an ultra rare event which is the second of two new Moons in a month. Something which can only occur once every 2.5 years. The fact that this one is eclipsed makes it rarer still.

Let’s review our basic eclipse knowledge which is extra for you as your ruler is always implicated in an eclipse. Three things in this universe cannot stay hidden for long. These are the Sun and the Moon – either one is in the shadows or hidden during an eclipse. The third is the truth which is what an eclipse always hides. Now, be aware the truth is just that. Neither good nor bad just the facts. Be we don’t want to be caught out by it. In your 11th you need to keep an open mind.

In your 5th, tune into your children if you have them as something may be going on they may not have confided in you or they may need your support. But across both of these houses in eclipse season, you need to avoid seeking that new lover and take things slowly with regards to anyone new during these times. Be wary of anyone who love or friend bombs you under this eclipse cycle. They may not be what they first appear to be.

Your dates are May 16 – total lunar eclipse in your 5th, Oct 25 – partial solar eclipse in your 5th and a total lunar eclipse conjunct Uranus in its ruling 11th on Nov 8th. Don’t judge a book by its cover but also keep an open mind when it comes to promises or potential around a particular connection. The proof is in the delivery – nothing else.

Big up those ambitions and set some serious intentions around achievement and actualization from May onwards. If you are on the wrong path, nothing will keep you there now but don’t worry, you’ll be sent down a new and better one as Jupiter arrives in your 10th on May 10.

After Jupiter’s historic and boundary breaking encounter with Neptune, time to big up those ambitions and set some serious intentions around achievement and actualization from May onwards. If you are on the wrong path, nothing will keep you there now but don’t worry, you’ll be sent down a new and better one as Jupiter arrives in your 10th on May 10. Jupiter spends half the year in here and the other half back in its ruling 9th. It’s about moving on up in more ways than one. Living and loving large, Cancer!

Many of you could encounter Jupiter in person in the form of a generous or helpful boss, teacher or mentor figure who opens doors to long term progress and perfection of those plans. Because your 10th doesn’t just rule your status but that of your partner, others could benefit from their partner’s success in their chosen area.

Single? Jupiter in here combined with Venus in your 1st during your birthday cycle could bring you that serious contender for your heart who means business. You find their optimism, sense of humour and above all, loyalty to those they care about and love, exactly what you are looking for. They may be successful in their chosen field even if this is an unconventional one. Chances are this may be someone who embraced hybrid working long before it became the new normal for so many of us!

Travel is also on the cards for you especially during the periods Jupiter heads back into its 9th. Especially traveling back to somewhere you have past links (or even past life links) to. Mars will spend a long time in your mysterious 12th this year including a retrograde which begins on October 30 and takes you on into 2023. People will show their true colours now. Who is on your side may surprise you – one way or another.

Get that answer

Your energy will peak during this time and for once, you won’t suffer fools gladly. Be prepared for complaints from others who may tell you that you are not your usual soothing self during this transit. The answer is you are. You are simply more aware of when people may be stepping over the line or taking advantage of you. And calling them out on it!

This new empowered you is actually very sexy. Strangely enough, setting some boundaries just gets you more respect from others in your life and more of what you want as you broadcast those standards. Venus ends the year where it began – back in your 7th from December 10 making the run up to the New Year another great period for duos, double acts and delightful duet possibilities along with the Sun in here from the 21st and a new Supermoon on the 23rd.

You are the brightest star in the sky when it comes to attraction at this time thanks to Jupiter’s return to your 10th on Dec 20. Time to plan your next move for 2023. But wait to initiate. You may end the year with the return of something or someone, Cancer as the 29th sees Mercury stationary retrograde conjunct Venus in your 7th. Or is it a revival of an old love or goal you’re aiming for in the New Year? If you asked a question at the start of the year, you’ll have it answered as it closes. The only way now is up in 2023!
