Week beginning Monday 13th of January 2020

A key issue concerning a relationship may still be at a peak, and this could leave you wondering what you should do next. As sweet Venus moves into Pisces, adopting a compassionate approach to yourself and another might help you find a way through. It is likely you will need to take positive action to resolve this, but when it comes from the heart, this can smooth the way ahead.


Sunday 19th of January 2020

If you are drawn to a person or perhaps a group or club that entertains very different ideas to your own, then it can be enlightening to find out more. They may not have the same values as you and might not agree on certain issues, but you could find such company very stimulating. If you have wanted to move in new circles Cancer, then doing so may revolutionize your life.


Sunday 19th of January 2020

You may be cautious when it comes to romance, but today you can feel much bolder. The cosmos could be asking you to push your comfort zone a little, so if you are solo, why not ask for a date? Someone close may be fun to flirt with, but how serious are their intentions?


Week beginning Monday 13th of January 2020

With the Sun linking to intense energies in your sector of relating, you may become aware of what is driving a key relationship. And it is this that might help you make some important decisions. If you have held back from making your move, potent insights can help you take that first step. Ready for a romantic vacation? Venus in Pisces could make it very special indeed.

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.
