Week beginning Monday 30th of March 2020

Restructuring your finances could be a priority from this week, allowing you to cut out waste and streamline your affairs. Need to make a decision about a goal or ambitious project? The Quarter Moon suggests this could be a turning point. Still, as Jupiter aligns with Pluto, the coming week or so can see a mutual project gaining momentum or perhaps succeeding after a lot of hard work.


Wednesday 1st of April 2020

The Quarter Moon in your sign can set you thinking about your direction in life, and what you hope to accomplish. You may have reached a milestone and be keen to make the best decision for the future. To assist with this, it also helps to listen to any intuitive nudges as they can give clues to what to embrace and what to ignore. If something leaves you feeling good, consider it.


Wednesday 1st of April 2020

You respond positively to those you're closely involved with; such sensitivity enables you to put yourself in their place and be more appreciative of their feelings. Your intuitive understanding of situations makes it easier for you to get to know people, to be more adventurous about disclosing the real you.


Week beginning Monday 30th of March 2020

Your antennae may be registering the mood of your partner, and this week a potent lunar phase in your sign could encourage a deeper conversation, if you are both in need of a heartfelt chat. Jupiter's alignment with Pluto at the weekend, could see your relationship going from strength to strength if you continually encourage each other and set yourselves small projects to work at.

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.
