Week beginning Monday 3rd of August 2020

Difficulty getting through to someone? If they seem overly stubborn matters can improve, especially from the weekend. An unexpected expense or other issue concerning finances could also show up. Avoid impulsive moves and get advice if necessary, Cancer. As lovely Venus enters your sign, it's time to invest in yourself. If you feel like some pampering, go for it!


Monday 3rd of August 2020

The lunar spotlight focuses on your finances, and hints at the potential of an unexpected expense or a need to attend to your money situation overall. You may be better to take the initiative and deal with any known issues, rather than wait for someone to get in contact with you. Showing your responsible and responsive side might make it easier to negotiate a solution that works for all.


Monday 3rd of August 2020

You have a great opportunity to either remodel your relationship or make some new connections. However, consider carefully what you want the outcome to be before alienating your current partner. It's important to share your feelings with them and explain your motivation, so they understand any changes.


Week beginning Monday 3rd of August 2020

With Mercury in your sign opposing sobering Saturn, there could be some reluctance to connect to someone, especially if they have upset you. This week though as sweet Venus moves into your sign, you may begin to feel differently towards them. Reaching out to discuss this matter might have a positive and heart-warming effect. Ready to date? Someone can be a breath of fresh air.

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.
