Cancer (22 June – 22 July)

Eclipse Season

Eclipses are always important for you because you’re a Moon child. The Moon is your ruling planetary body. This month, there’s a Lunar or Full Moon Eclipse on the 10th in your star sign, Cancer. 

This is part of a significant eclipse cycle for you that cuts across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac. This particular cycle began in July 2018 and completes in July 2020. 

Eclipses are dramatic and they bring about change. It’s hard to stay stuck in your comfort zone when you have eclipse energy propelling you forwards. That’s not to say that eclipses are easy but they are a time when you can turn your life around.

Saturn-Pluto Conjunction

Also, this could be a month when you’re facing some strong opposition. The eclipse falls two days before a major Saturn-Pluto conjunction on the 12th in Capricorn, your opposite star sign. Therefore, the Moon is opposed by these two key planets and Saturn is your partner planet as it rules Capricorn.

You may already know who or what you’re taking on as this theme in your life has been particularly strong since April 2019 or even earlier, back to December 2017. You might be up against the authorities, challenging the establishment or have a personal enemy or opponent who’s standing in your way.

Love is potentially another big theme for you during this mid-month period. Capricorn is your relationship sector and rules both personal and professional partnerships. There’s a possibility that one relationship could come to an end under this powerful astrology. 

Eclipses often have a theme of endings and new beginnings. Therefore, it’s also worth considering what you need to let go of in order for love to work out. You might be setting someone free or letting go of a relationship or partnership that no longer serves you. There’s a sense of sweeping out the old in order to make room for the new.

There could also be a major event in your partner’s life during this period in January. Perhaps, they’re faced with an ultimatum or significant change in their work situation or their family situation has a knock on effect in your own life.

Traditionally, you’re wise to wait a few days after an eclipse before taking action. View your options carefully and be bold if you’re closing a door on the past in order to move on.

Money Matters

Also, this month, there are three planets in Aquarius and your joint finance sector and this is where the action’s at in the month ahead. This means you can’t make decisions about your own finances without involving someone else. Plus, money and emotions are closely linked.

Love planet Venus is in Aquarius until the 13th and both Mercury (communication) and the Sun (identity) enter Aquarius on the 16th and 20th respectively. Do what you can this month to line up important meetings which help you get clear about your financial situation. Turn to other people or an expert for advice or support and don’t feel you have to go it alone.

The key date for money matters is the 24th, when there’s a New Moon in Aquarius, a symbol of new beginnings. Here too, however, there’s a theme of changing things around or letting go of a union or contract that isn’t working out. January’s astrology is about turning the page to start over.

Mars Sagittarius – Work Ethic

One area of life that is strong for you now is your work and routine. This is because action planet Mars enters Sagittarius and your work sector on the 3rd where it remains until mid-February and this gives you extra drive and ambition to work hard and reap your rewards. Sagittarius also rules your health and fitness, key areas to address this month.

If you’re caught up in any kind of financial tie or bind, detach yourself emotionally and focus your energy instead on work and earnings. Be objective about money matters and don’t hand over the reins of your finances completely to someone else. There’s a chance you may fall prey to seduction or be ripped off if you’re not aware of what’s going on.

Aquarius rules all kind of joint financial transactions, such as mortgages, savings and debt, inheritance, alimony, child support, etc. Aquarius is the star sign most closely linked to technology and all things modern. Therefore, you might be looking at new ways of earning money or new ways of trading.

Ensure that your skills are up-to-date and you’re on top of new trends or techniques that can boost your situation. Sometimes, when key planets are in Aquarius, you’re dealing with taboo matters, issues you wouldn’t normally wish to explore or talk about.

Dreams & Pisces

Finally, this month is a time to allow yourself to dream and line up some new adventures, especially after the 13th when Venus enters Pisces and your fellow water sign. Pisces rules travel and study in your horoscope. It’s linked to a romantic perspective, whether you’re into music, art, poetry or any activity that gives your life meaning and purpose.

You may be more than ready to get away in the second half of the month and go somewhere new, to gain a fresh perspective on your life. Travel and romance come together, especially near the 27th when love planet Venus teams up with Neptune. There’s a dreamy quality to this combination and it’s a strong month to line up some new experiences for you and a partner. Move away from the humdrum and the everyday.

There may be times when daydreaming takes over and you find it hard to deal with the stresses of daily life. The end of the month could be most challenging in this respect when action planet Mars clashes with Neptune on the 28th. If you’re disillusioned with your routine or lifestyle, this could be an unsettling period for you.

Ideally, use the Pisces influence to bring more inspiration into your world, whether you follow a spiritual path, you travel and immerse yourself in new cultures or you channel your creative imagination into learning and knowledge.
