Week beginning Monday 9th of December 2019

A dreamy Mars Neptune influence could see you reaching for experiences that have a spiritual quality or that could soothe and heal. With a Full Moon in a sheltered chart zone, a reduced schedule could be an opportunity to seek them out and see where they take you. Socializing? One encounter could disappoint, but a sizzling connection with lots of potential might more than make up for this.


Wednesday 11th of December 2019

A positive Jupiter/Uranus link suggests that coming days can be a time of inspiration that could be so very good for you. And you may gain from the people you meet, especially as opportunities abound. If you are travelling and keen to spend time in a different environment, then good company and lively experiences could be a very pleasant and refreshing change for you Cancer.


Wednesday 11th of December 2019

You may prefer to keep your private life in the shadows now. It could be that you are involved in a romance that requires discretion, or it may simply be you prefer to keep your romantic feelings or intentions to yourself. You can find yourself attracted to someone, but not yet ready to admit this to yourself.


Week beginning Monday 9th of December 2019

Fantasies about someone can come to a head, especially if they seem a little out of reach and quite mysterious. With sweet Venus linking to sobering Saturn and potent Pluto, you may swing between frostiness and obsession. If this is the case, take a step back until you understand your predicament. Plus, a sparkling Jupiter/Uranus tie can coincide with a very promising encounter.

About Cancer

Information about your birth sign


Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac. It's a cardinal sign, with natural leadership ability, so you like to be the boss!

You are a water sign ruled by the Moon. The Moon changes sign approximately every two and half days on its monthly journey around the zodiac. Its gravitational pull moves the tides of our vast oceans. Inhabiting a human body doesn't make any of us immune to this force. We're around 60 percent water.

Being a Cancerian, you feel this lunar movement more acutely. Some say you can be moody or crabby, we would probably all be crabby if our inner landscape shifted slightly every two and a half days!

The symbol for Cancer is the crab. A crab wears a hard shell which protects its squashy and vulnerable innards. Like the crab, you wear a hard shell over your vulnerable feelings and generally keep them to yourself. The side of you we're allowed to see is kindly, gentle, nurturing, capable and strong.

A crab on the move will move sideways, usually with stealth! You rarely go directly after what you want, you often sidle up to it or approach in a round about way.

A crab has tenacious pincers, it grabs on and holds tight. You can have difficulty letting go, even when the cupboards are bulging! Also you'll remember, and sometimes dwell on, old hurts and injustices (whether real or imagined), long after the events.

Being the first of the water signs makes you super-sensitive, your feelings are easily hurt and you're not able to shrug things off like some. You probably have accurate hunches and some innate psychic ability, depending on the rest of your horoscope.

Cancer rules our home and family life, so your home and family are especially important. In Cancer we need to feel we have somewhere we belong, and just as the crab has its shell, your home is your shell, a safe place of retreat when you need to nourish yourself.

The energy of the Moon is matriarchal in essence, so most of you make excellent, supportive parents. Those who don't have children, can parent their co-workers and friends or they nurture in their professional capacity. Care-workers, collectors, cradles and caterers all belong to your sign. Cancer men are often good cooks and some can outshine the women in the kitchen.

Traditionally you get on best with the other sensitive water signs, Scorpio and Pisces, also with the earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, but there are 12 different faces of Cancer, depending on which zodiac sign the Moon was transiting on the day of your birth. If you have a fiery or airy Moon, then you'll get along with those signs too.

If you don't know the sign of the wandering Moon on the day of your birth, one of our astrologers will be happy to tell you more. For those of you born on a day when the Moon changed signs, we will need your time of birth too.
