2013: Cancer Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

2013 Overview for all of Cancer.

While there are some ongoing conflicts to iron out in 2013, overall, it's a stabilizing, positive year for you, dear Cancer. Until June, Jupiter continues to move through your solar twelfth house, and you pay more attention to your spiritual life as well as your need for privacy. You can be especially supportive of others during this period, sometimes to an extreme extent. At times as well, you might feel like escaping into your own little private world, where it seems safer and happier. In a general sense, with Jupiter in your privacy sector, you don't feel especially equipped to make big changes or choices. By June, you are ready to ask for what you deserve. This is when Jupiter begins its year-long transit of your own sign. In August especially, this can cause some friction, possibly because others, especially partners and close friends as well as family, have grown accustomed to your "laying low" and the support you've given them with few conditions. However, overall, this is a positive transit in which you are coming into your own, discovering your need to express yourself, and drawing upon inner stores of confidence. Freedom is something you seek, but be wary of the costs of freedom when it's pursued without necessary attention to responsibilities. This is a good period for attention to physical fitness and health routines, as you are more aware of how these positively impact your energy and confidence. Work may be especially available to you at this time, and you tend to take charge instead of hide from its responsibilities. Love is likely to be complicated, as you begin to demand a little more from it. You may be dealing with difficult personalities, and if you're single, you might feel a lack. However, for many of you, a romance might stabilize and move to a new level. For those with children, the need for more structure becomes apparent, particularly with a first child who may be going through some growing pains. Career continues to be a sort of wild card for you. Either you are moving towards identifying with a new path, or some changes are introduced upon you, forcing you to rethink things. Even so, you feel successful, particularly in the second half of the year, and you bring a positive spirit to many areas of life, including career. 2013 is about blossoming and demanding a little more from your life, and you're likely to get it.

2013 Details.

Until June 25th, Jupiter continues to transit your solar twelfth house. This transit brings benefits to activities that take place "behind the scenes" or otherwise privately, as well as in the soul. This is a cycle in which you become more compassionate, empathetic, and sensitive, or get in deeper touch with these traits. Jupiter in the twelfth house is said to offer one spiritual protection. This is a time when you can rid yourself of self-destructive tendencies, deep-seated fears, and deeply-ingrained tendencies towards guilty feelings. You are more able to get in touch with your subconscious mind, and in fact, confronting your fears can be quite pleasurable during this period. Charity, giving/donating anonymously, volunteering, and helping others without expectation of reward will be most fulfilling during this cycle. Helping others actually helps you. Work that involves serving others may begin now and bring you much joy. Your dreaming world may be especially rich, lighter, helpful, and more intuitive. Meditation and retreats may be particularly helpful to you now, as they regenerate and invigorate your spirit. Much pleasure and growth might be found in solitude and contemplation. You may pick up New Age studies, spirituality, dream interpretation, or research during this cycle. Some people enter into a private romance during this cycle. In general, help seems to be there when you need it. You are building or rebuilding your inner faith now. These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. There may be some sacrifices required in your work, or you could be doing some work behind the scenes during this cycle.

The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar twelfth house, from January 30th to June 25th.

From June 25th forward, Jupiter transits your sign and your solar first house. This exciting transit occurs only every twelve years or so, and brings improvements to your immediate environment and self-confidence as well as increased generosity to your personality. Your personality is more obviously expansive, exuberant, and enthusiastic. This transit heightens your optimism and generosity, and the entire cycle has the potential for being a relaxed, fortunate, and hopeful time in your life. You are greeting life with a fresh, can-do attitude. What happened in the past is not very important to you now - it's the future you're eyeing now. Events occur that help you to overcome problems that previously seemed challenging or even insurmountable--you have an altogether different perspective on life now, and are not inclined much to sweat the small stuff. You create a distinct first impression on others, and your likeability increases. Furthering your personal ambitions and interests comes more easily during this cycle. At times, you may feel like the sky is the limit! You might need to guard against becoming too full of yourself or overly self-interested, however. There is also a risk of overindulgence and other forms of excessive behavior. Jupiter can bring endings into your life in order for you to grow, although these are generally easy ones. A carefree attitude is different than a careless one, and the fine line between the two is definitely something to watch for. You feel considerably freer to be yourself, and others tend to accept you more readily. These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once, although they are more likely due to Jupiter's direct influence on your life. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life, and always watch for overdoing things or carelessness.

This can also be a time when it's easier to find employment or work that suits you well. It's a strong time for self-improvement efforts, particularly because Jupiter rules your sector of health, work, and self-care. Expanding your horizons through higher learning or travel might also figure strongly. This is a time for aligning your behavior with what you believe is right. You are taking more "me" time, which is in fact long overdue.  

The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar first house, from June 25th to November 6th. (This transit lasts until July 2014).

Jupiter transits conjunct your Sun/Ascendant from June 25th to August 10th. This is a feel-good transit that offers you opportunities to rise above petty concerns. It's an excellent time to start new long-term projects. You might find that you feel more vital, confident, and optimistic about the future at this time. It's a good time to resolve conflicts. You may be released from previously confining situations that have been stunting your growth or progress. Events may give your ego a boost, and you could be feeling quite vital and alive. Take advantage of this by promoting yourself or putting yourself "out there". Ego gratification is the theme of this transit. This is the start of a "new you" -- a more confident and faithful person.

Saturn continues to transit your solar fifth house this year. This transit lasts until 2015, and is typically most strongly felt in the first year (for you, from October 2012 to October 2013). Saturn's influence is rather somber and serious, but also responsible and practical. You are getting serious about fifth house matters: romance, relationships with children, your creativity, and pleasure. Serious about pleasure? Yes, indeed. While you may not spend a whole lot of time living it up at parties, bars, or entertainment venues, you are likely to take your hobbies more seriously. In fact, this is an excellent period for monetizing any personal hobby--turning it into a business, even if it's on the side. If you have children, they may need more discipline or structure than they previously did. Some Cancers will be welcoming children into their lives and discovering all of the responsibilities that come with it. Others who already have children may find that they're at an age that requires more attention and discipline, or structure. In the romance department, Saturn's influence can go either way. For some, romance may be felt to be lacking or a romantic relationship could be more practical than fun. Tests or pressures on an existing romance could figure now. For those of you who have recently entered a romance, you are beginning to look at it more seriously and critically. For others, a romantic relationship stabilizes and becomes more serious. Some of you will meet a new romantic interest who is perhaps older or mature, thus meeting Saturn through a partner. Because Saturn rules the area of your chart that rules committed partnerships as opposed to the casual romances ruled by the fifth house, some of you could find a lover is stuck in the romance phase of a relationship and may not be moving towards commitment as quickly as you'd like.

Pluto is beginning or continuing its transit of your solar seventh house this year, and you are likely to be facing the deeper, and possibly darker, elements of your own personality through your close interactions with another. There can be power struggles and the facing of fears before eventual healing.

For those of you born June 30-July 1 and those with an Ascendant of 9-10 degrees Cancer, intensity is part of the picture this year with Pluto opposing your Sun or Ascendant. Changes in the way you relate to others are afoot. Power struggles are possible in close personal relationships.  Your relationships tend to have distinct themes revolving around personal power, domination, jealousy, manipulation, or self-will. Your biggest enemy during this period is resentment, which can act to eat away your confidence and healthy state of mind. There may be conflicts between partnership goals and family or domestic goals this year, and the challenge could serve to "initiate" you into this new phase of your life. As well, the influence of Pluto entering your seventh house can point to taking a casual romantic affair to a new level. Major changes in the structure of your close personal relationships, and in your attitude towards them, are in store.

Uranus begins or continues its lengthy transit of your solar tenth house. Your career direction changes and your relationships with authority figures may be more challenging during this long-term cycle. Do your best to avoid impulsive decision-making that is built upon your desire to be a free spirit. You may recognize talents that you never knew you had, and this can be a sudden, exciting discovery.

For those of you born June 27-July 1 and those with an Ascendant of 5-10 degrees Cancer, Uranus is transiting square your Sun. This transit could stimulate you to make changes that have long been overdue. For example, you might free yourself from limiting or frustrating circumstances. Your life speeds up, and decision-making can be very hasty now. You definitely feel the need for action this year, but if you don't know where you're headed, you might take the wrong turn. Unexpected changes in plans or events can test your patience, and you could feel a bit out of control at times. However, events could stimulate you to try new approaches and they certainly act to cut boredom. Your creativity is stimulated this year, but so is your excitability and your need for freedom. You are likely to be more outspoken than usual, perhaps even rebellious.

The influence of Neptune is similar to last year for those of you born June 28-July 1 and with a Cancer Ascendant of 6-10 degrees. Neptune continues to transit your solar eighth house, as it has been doing for a number of years. You may encounter some challenges regarding shared finances or property. A loan or other form of support may come through unexpectedly, even in a mysterious fashion. Intimate relationships can be highly colorful, perhaps with spiritual undercurrents, but possibly a little confusing. The boundaries that are normally drawn between what is yours and what is mine may be blurred somewhat this year. A partner could have unsettled finances, and this could impact your own finances. Do be wary of anything that even slightly resembles fraud. Lending others money may be a lesson in frustration during this cycle. However, for those born June 22-27 ( or 0-5-1/2 degrees Cancer Ascendant), Neptune begins its transit of your solar ninth house and trines your Sun/Ascendant this year. Your overall perspective on life begins to significantly expand, and you are more willing to embrace unusual, mystical, or spiritual philosophies. Neptune's influence can be quite magical this year. It stimulates your imagination and intuition. Your words are more poetic and perhaps even inspirational. Participation in the arts, music, entertainment, community service, spiritual practice, or religious pursuits can be enhanced this year. Do what you dream of doing, and trust your inner knowledge and intuition at the point before it gets distorted by logic. Refreshing interludes such as a vacation or other relaxing forms of entertainment are more possible now. Others see you in a sweet light--you are more charming than usual, and your artistic, creative, and compassionate side is apparent and most appreciated.

For those of you born June 28-July 1 and with a Cancer Ascendant of 6-10 degrees, Chiron is transiting trine your Sun/Ascendant this year. This influence is a subtly healing one. Others look upon you with more respect, tolerance, and acceptance. You don't feel the need to prove yourself, and that feels good. You have the chance to shine, largely because you are projecting yourself with self-respect and modesty at once. You are especially appealing and charming during this transit just by being yourself. Opportunities--both personal and professional--are likely to present themselves as a result. You are not looking for credit for what you do, which frees you up to get it anyhow! New friendships are likely to emerge this year--supportive and easygoing ones.

The North Node of the Moon is transiting your solar fifth house all year, and this suggests that some of the greatest joys - and challenges - come through your creativity, uniqueness, standing out, love affairs, and sharing your heart. You need to make a conscious effort to deal with others in a more personal, involved, and loving manner, rather than falling back on reason and intellect which detaches you from your feelings. Learning to take personal risks, which requires a certain amount of self-confidence, will help you to achieve inner balance and happiness.

Eclipses in 2013 fall mostly in your solar fifth and eleventh houses, and you will be learning about letting go of your attachment to the drama of romance and personal relationships, as well as your willfulness. You are called upon to learn about the value of the team. You may need to give freedom to your romantic partner instead of expecting him or her to follow a script of your own making. You learn the value of brotherly love and the benefits of a sense of belonging to a community. Events are such that you move towards a more objective approach to your life and you cultivate true friendships. A romantic affair may undergo deep, rewarding changes. If love is true, there's nothing to fear. The demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. Also possible, your children may be going through their own changes and "stages", and need more attention now.  In October, a Lunar Eclipse in Aries turns your attention to career and reputation.

From May to November, there may be some conflict between the demands of a partnership and the demands of career. Finding a balance between the two, instead of pushing or rebelling against either, is the challenge now. People tend to be pulling you in different directions.

You have increased faith, not only in yourself but in life itself, in 2013 which helps you to achieve what you set out to do. You continue to reclaim your personal power, and you insist that others accept you for who you are. The second half of 2013 should be a highly spirited period. You are in the position to inspire others through what you create. Do your best to create something tangible out of your ideas. You are bound to reach a broader audience if you do, and the feedback will feed the flames of your own inspiration. Teaching may play a big role in your life. Authors will find a broader audience. Trips could be especially rewarding for you--they can provide a pleasant breather from pressures in your life. You have a strong interest in broadening your mental experiences in general, and finding expression of your personality through them, perhaps through higher education or exploring different philosophies of life. Expressing yourself creatively really helps to define yourself and to understand yourself better. Your creative abilities are reflected in your outlook on life and love and romance are life experiences you strongly identify with. Children may be a stronger focus this year as well. You are more effective, in general, in attempts to express your creativity. You have a stronger ability to hold the attention of an audience. Love, love affairs, and other social activities help to enhance a healthy self image. Meeting a partner through travel or educational activities is also possible, or in an existing partnership, you might decide to expand your horizons together, as a couple.

For those born July 5-12 and with a Cancer Ascendant of 13-20 degrees, Uranus continues to transit your solar ninth house. If you do get a chance to travel, which could come up quite unexpectedly, unusual and eye-opening experiences may be in store for you. The people that you meet this year tend to stir you into new ways of thinking. You are less inclined towards a personal philosophy that is traditional now, and more attracted to more avant-garde or simply progressive belief systems.

For those of you born July 2-4 and those with an Ascendant of 10-12-1/2 degrees Cancer, Uranus is transiting square your Sun and Uranus begins its lengthy transit of your solar tenth house.

Learning to take personal risks, which requires a certain amount of self-confidence, will help you to achieve inner balance and happiness. From August forward, the North Node points you in the direction of home and family. You need to let go of your tendency to over-manage your life and others' lives, to relax your standards of perfection and achievement, and to avoid falling victim to living through the eyes of society instead of valuing our own personal (as opposed to professional/status) achievements. By working on your inner foundation and your "base", success will ricochet back to your public and professional lives.

Finding a balance between the two, instead of pushing or rebelling against either, is the challenge now. People tend to be pulling you in different directions. Although your overall state of mind is stable and productive, some restlessness is likely. Mundane tasks capture your attention, but the urge to get out and about is bound to grab hold of you as well. You may need to deal with frequent distractions.

You are in the position to inspire others through what you create this year. Do your best to create something tangible out of your ideas. You are bound to reach a broader audience if you do, and the feedback will feed the flames of your own inspiration. Teaching may play a big role in your life. Authors will find a broader audience.

2013: Cancer Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

2013 Overview for all Cancers.

While there are some ongoing conflicts to iron out in 2013, overall, it's a stabilizing, positive year for you, dear Cancer. Until June, Jupiter continues to move through your solar twelfth house, and you pay more attention to your spiritual life as well as your need for privacy. You can be especially supportive of others during this period, sometimes to an extreme extent. At times as well, you might feel like escaping into your own little private world, where it seems safer and happier. In a general sense, with Jupiter in your privacy sector, you don't feel especially equipped to make big changes or choices. By June, you are ready to ask for what you deserve. This is when Jupiter begins its year-long transit of your own sign. In August especially, this can cause some friction, possibly because others, especially partners and close friends as well as family, have grown accustomed to your "laying low" and the support you've given them with few conditions. However, overall, this is a positive transit in which you are coming into your own, discovering your need to express yourself, and drawing upon inner stores of confidence. Freedom is something you seek, but be wary of the costs of freedom when it's pursued without necessary attention to responsibilities. This is a good period for attention to physical fitness and health routines, as you are more aware of how these positively impact your energy and confidence. Work may be especially available to you at this time, and you tend to take charge instead of hide from its responsibilities. Love is likely to be complicated, as you begin to demand a little more from it. You may be dealing with difficult personalities, and if you're single, you might feel a lack. However, for many of you, a romance might stabilize and move to a new level. For those with children, the need for more structure becomes apparent, particularly with a first child who may be going through some growing pains. Career continues to be a sort of wild card for you. Either you are moving towards identifying with a new path, or some changes are introduced upon you, forcing you to rethink things. Even so, you feel successful, particularly in the second half of the year, and you bring a positive spirit to many areas of life, including career. 2013 is about blossoming and demanding a little more from your life, and you're likely to get it.

2013 Details.

Until May 12th, Jupiter continues to transit your solar eleventh house, potentially bringing benefits and fresh energy to networking activities, the formulation of broad, long-term goals, acquaintances, clubs, and organizations in your life. You can rely on your friends for their help and support, and your circle of friends could most certainly increase during this fruitful transit. Your long-term goals and wishes tend to be broad and perhaps unusual or ahead of the times just now. You may particularly enjoy dreaming up ideas for the future. Achieving your goals tends to come more easily now. Others especially value your advice and often turn to you for help. You could become more active with friends or in your community. You may have opportunities to join or lead clubs or groups. Group activities and associations could be avenues for fulfilling your own goals. You may take special joy in sharing a common cause or ideals with others. You are especially hopeful and more inclined to believe that if you wish it, it will be! Income from your business or career is likely to increase. You might find yourself more tolerant of others in general, and of differences in values. Reaching out beyond your personal circle can certainly open doors to you and bring joy into your life during this cycle. You might also expand your social circle through work, or while pursuing health goals. These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. Also, Jupiter can bring too much of a good thing at times, and you might find that your social agenda is crammed or that you have taken on more friends or goals than you can reasonably handle.

This can also be a time when work and friendships are tied together. Some might establish new friendships through work, and others might find work through a friend, for example.

The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar eleventh house, from January 30th to May 12th.

Jupiter transits your solar twelfth house from May 12th forward. This transit brings benefits to activities that take place "behind the scenes" or otherwise privately, as well as in the soul. This is a cycle in which you become more compassionate, empathetic, and sensitive, or get in deeper touch with these traits. Jupiter in the twelfth house is said to offer one spiritual protection. This is a time when you can rid yourself of self-destructive tendencies, deep-seated fears, and deeply-ingrained tendencies towards guilty feelings. You are more able to get in touch with your subconscious mind, and in fact, confronting your fears can be quite pleasurable during this period. Charity, giving/donating anonymously, volunteering, and helping others without expectation of reward will be most fulfilling during this cycle. Helping others actually helps you. Work that involves serving others may begin now and bring you much joy. Your dreaming world may be especially rich, lighter, helpful, and more intuitive. Meditation and retreats may be particularly helpful to you now, as they regenerate and invigorate your spirit. Much pleasure and growth might be found in solitude and contemplation. You may pick up New Age studies, spirituality, dream interpretation, or research during this cycle. Some people enter into a private romance during this cycle. In general, help seems to be there when you need it. You are building or rebuilding your inner faith now. These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. There may be some sacrifices required in your work, or you could be doing some work behind the scenes during this cycle.

The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar twelfth house, from May 12th to November 6th.

Saturn transits your solar fourth house again this year. Saturn here urges you to get serious about home, family, and domestic concerns. You are building your nest, not in a "plumping your nest" sort of way. In fact, you may be stripping some things away--perhaps even downsizing or de-cluttering--and adding structure to your domestic life. You face issues surrounding your attachments to the past. Sometimes this manifests as literal re-organization of your home. Moving house is not typically associated with this transit as it would if, for example, Uranus was the transiting planet. If moves are made, you might encounter some resistance in yourself. This is not a time when you feel particularly brave in the outer world. However, reorganization in your home, and more importantly, in your soul, embodies the true nature of this transit. Many will go through a major "spring cleaning" inside. Limitations that came from early family conditioning will be brought to the fore. At first, there may be some frustration with your life to date, and how you have limited your opportunities because of early conditioning. A feeling of being alone and unsupported in life may dominate now. You may experience some distancing or frustrations regarding your parents. Family obligations may get in the way of your experience of pleasure and of the achievement of your personal goals. There may be some emotional distancing as well in your home. Your current living conditions may feel restrictive, limiting, too small or cramped (physically and/or emotionally). Delays and slowdowns may be experienced in the areas of health, mobility, and career. However, all of these things are occurring now in order that you face your responsibilities, become more self-sufficient, and more organized. Ultimately, you are learning to rely on yourself and to take care of things that you may have previously neglected but that have undermined your confidence in yourself and in your life.

Uranus continues to transit your solar ninth house. If you do get a chance to travel, which could come up quite unexpectedly, unusual and eye-opening experiences may be in store for you. The people that you meet this year tend to stir you into new ways of thinking. You are less inclined towards a personal philosophy that is traditional now, and more attracted to more avant-garde or simply progressive belief systems.

The influence of Neptune is similar to last year. Neptune continues to transit your solar eighth house, as it has been doing for a number of years. You may encounter some challenges regarding shared finances or property. A loan or other form of support may come through unexpectedly, even in a mysterious fashion. Intimate relationships can be highly colorful, perhaps with spiritual undercurrents, but possibly a little confusing. The boundaries that are normally drawn between what is yours and what is mine may be blurred somewhat this year. A partner could have unsettled finances, and this could impact your own finances. Do be wary of anything that even slightly resembles fraud. Lending others money may be a lesson in frustration during this cycle.

The North Node of the Moon is transiting your solar fifth house until March, and this suggests that some of the greatest joys - and challenges - come through your creativity, uniqueness, standing out, love affairs, and sharing your heart. You need to make a conscious effort to deal with others in a more personal, involved, and loving manner, rather than falling back on reason and intellect which detaches you from your feelings. Learning to take personal risks, which requires a certain amount of self-confidence, will help you to achieve inner balance and happiness. From March forward, the North Node points you in the direction of home and family. You need to let go of your tendency to over-manage your life and others' lives, to relax your standards of perfection and achievement, and to avoid falling victim to living through the eyes of society instead of valuing our own personal (as opposed to professional/status) achievements. By working on your inner foundation and your "base", success will ricochet back to your public and professional lives.

Eclipses in 2013 fall mostly in your solar fifth and eleventh houses and your fourth and tenth houses, and you will be learning about letting go of your attachment to the drama of romance and personal relationships, as well as your willfulness. You are called upon to learn about the value of the team. You may need to give freedom to your romantic partner instead of expecting him or her to follow a script of your own making. You learn the value of brotherly love and the benefits of a sense of belonging to a community. Events are such that you move towards a more objective approach to your life and you cultivate true friendships. A romantic affair may undergo deep, rewarding changes. If love is true, there's nothing to fear. The demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. Also possible, your children may be going through their own changes and "stages", and need more attention now. Additionally, it's time to take steps to improve your family and home life. You may need to review and change your career goals as well. Career matters come to a head. You may be challenged to perform and prove your competence in 2013. Keeping everything aboveboard is critical. Finding a balance between your attention to home and career is the challenge now.

From May to November, although your overall state of mind is stable and productive, some restlessness is likely. Mundane tasks capture your attention, but the urge to get out and about is bound to grab hold of you as well. You may need to deal with frequent distractions.

This is an excellent year to get in touch with the past conditioning that makes you what you are today. Periods when you completely relax and retreat, removing yourself from everyday affairs, will be especially beneficial. You may be able to secure a job that allows you to work from home this year, particularly, or you could bring more work home with you in your present job. You are likely to learn that privacy and more down time are good for your soul, and some of you will be learning to get over your fears of being alone. You might gain property or support from family. Connecting intimately with another person boosts your sense of security.
