Areas of Expansion in 2015 for Cancer: Money, Possessions, Resources, Communications, Transportation, Learning
Your Cancer 2015 Horoscope, Jupiter Profile, points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until August 11, 2015, money, personal possessions, and self-worth continue to expand and grow. Your desire for security and comfort is hearty now, and you’ll pursue these things with more confidence and verve. You feel that you deserve more!
This cycle that has been with you since July 2014 is strong for attracting more money from your professional endeavors and for expanding a business. You might also more easily attract support from others (but be careful if you are suddenly in the position to receive, for example, a credit line or sizeable loan – spend wisely). You should certainly watch for overspending. From April to June is better for making big-ticket item purchases, if necessary.
This is a strong time for buying long-term valuables. You are likely to make bigger decisions about your material resources during this period.
Potential negatives: Is it really possible that more money or resources could be negative? Yes, when the attitude towards money is careless. If you are accumulating personal possessions too quickly, this can lead to clutter and disorganization. If you’re overconfident about your ability to make money, then you might take foolish risks, such as borrowing from your future, and this tendency tends to be especially strong in February and May. There can be a conflict over someone else’s resources or money, or a frustrating clash of values. Watch for laziness or over-indulgence. In August, there can be difficulties with obligations to creative or entertainment and recreational pursuits that clash with your desire to build your nest egg.
Otherwise, this is a good period for bringing a fresh, positive, and confident attitude towards your own self-worth and value, and to your practical affairs, including work and career. Until June especially, and even more so from April to June, opportunities to attract improved conditions in your career and a boost in reputation can arise. Your attitude is a “can do” one now. New business ventures can be especially successful.
From August 11th onward, your communications increase and expand. Your ability and desire to express yourself is greater now, and your personal interests grow. Good fortune with vehicles, transportation, through siblings, and with the communications industry can be experienced during this cycle that runs until September 2016. There can be an especially strong focus on communications or transportation in the work you do or services you provide. Some of you could be working with relatives/siblings. It’s a strong time for updating your skills and learning new ones that you can apply to your job. You are more perceptive, and others are more receptive to your ideas. New opportunities to communicate can open up to you.
Potential negatives: Taking on too many daily activities, communications, new interests, and learning endeavors or studies can be a problem now. Don’t overload your plate. The more excessive tendencies of this transit are more likely to be experienced in September and November. Be especially clear in your communications and watch for misrepresentation. You could experience some feelings of disillusionment with, or interruptions of, current studies or belief systems. A busy personal life can impact your focus in your career.
However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy more opportunities through your communications and contact with others during this cycle in 2015. You could make new friends and feel more connected with a partner this year, particularly from October forward, when opportunities can arise. Your perspective can change completely, in a very positive way, through a partner or new information that comes your way. Some of you could meet a significant other through communications, new mental interests, or studies. There can be growth in commitment or devotion in an existing partnership, largely through opening up the lines of communication and bonding as a result. Your views toward love and commitment can transform.
You might find that you travel less or not at all, and that you are busier locally. Your thinking is more upbeat, positive, and forward-looking, and so is the way you express yourself. In fact, this is an excellent time for improving your communication skills and your general attitude or mindset. There can be important opportunities through meetings, courses, teaching, and connections made in the neighborhood or through siblings. Some problems with siblings or neighbors could be put to rest now, although they might be magnified initially in order for problem areas to come out into the open and finally be resolved. Some might return to school or take some courses.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: romance, Children, Creativity, Entertainment, Recreation, Self-Expression, Work, Health, Daily routines
Your Cancer 2015 Horoscope, Saturn Profile, points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary “slimming down” in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
From June 14 to September 17, 2015, the areas of your life that require a “back to basics” approach are associated with the sector of your chart that rules creativity, dating and romance, pleasure, children, hobbies, and creative pastimes. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence began October 5th, 2012, and is with you for part of this year, from June 14th to September 17th. This is the final haul! It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on whether you were born earlier or later in the sign of Cancer.
Tests can come to your romantic life during this cycle. For those of you who are single, there can be some reluctance to enter into light-hearted romantic relationships. If you do, you do so cautiously, and you are attracted to more mature or stable people during this cycle. Because you are more discriminating now, the pickings might appear to be slim.
Those of you who are dating might feel some loneliness, as it can be hard to find what you are looking for at this time. An existing romance may be tested but strong ones strengthen further. Those Cancers who are in committed partnerships could find the romantic or fun element of the relationship becomes a strong area of focus during this cycle, for better or for worse. Keeping this aspect of your partnership alive requires work. A romantic partner could feel like a “heavy” at this time, and you might feel restricted in terms of making acquaintances and enjoying other people’s company. For those single and looking, be careful that you don’t project a negative attitude without even realizing it, as this can intimidate some.
Those of you who are parents could feel the weight of responsibilities towards children during this cycle. They may require more of your attention now.
Creatively speaking, you are a little more serious in your approach. You might be turning a hobby into a business now, or you might find that there is less time for creative hobbies, pastimes, and entertainment. You can be filled with desire, or circumstances create a need, for more structure in all of these areas of life, including children, romance, creativity, and recreation.
The more difficult potentials of this transit may be realized in June and early August especially, when Saturn is challenged by Pluto and Jupiter respectively.
Until June 14th, and then from September 17th onward, the areas of your life that require a “back to basics” approach are associated with the sector of your chart that governs work, health, daily routines, employees, pets, and habits. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence is new for you, having only begun December 23rd, 2014, and will be with you until December, 2017. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on whether you were born earlier or later in the sign of Cancer. This year, those born in the first four days of Cancer are most directly affected.
Tests can come to work and working relationships during this cycle. Responsibilities in your daily life can weigh heavily – they appear magnified, although Jupiter’s influence in your solar third house from mid-August forward can certainly help to minimize this. Do be sure, however, that you are tending to your responsibilities, and not letting them pile up. Some of you might even experience some form of loss or scandal on the work front, or possibly some heavy-handed activity and power plays from co-workers.
For those of you unhappy with your job or out of work, you are not likely to jump to grab just any position now. You are looking for something mature, long-term, and reflective of your values. Because you are more discriminating now, the pickings might seem to be slim. There can be confusion about where you are headed, ultimately, in your professional life.
The monotonous part of your work can seem harder to take, and it’s up to you to work on restructuring enough to make it work for you. Try not to see flaws and complain. Take it upon yourself to make whatever adjustments you can that will improve your working conditions.
This can be true of daily routines, not just working conditions. Health matters might be a little more problematic than usual.
While the work we do may sometimes feel too routine or boring, it can also give us a strong feeling of purpose. We want to be needed, we want to help and support others, and to do our share. If you’ve been overdoing a supportive role, which is quite possible with excessive Sagittarius on the cusp of your sixth house, or if you’ve been scattering your energies and haven’t truly noted just how much you do, then Saturn here will stimulate you to tidy up. In the end, you can in fact feel more joyful about the services your provide and the support you give, after taking a realistic look at these things and making the necessary adjustments.
However, while Saturn squares Neptune from November 2015 to September 2016, you might wrestle with a desire to escape the duller, seemingly lifeless elements of your routine. In April-May and then in November, the challenges of this position are more likely to be felt. You may be feeling that the work you are doing is not your true vocation, or you could feel that you’re not being recognized for all of your efforts.
Because the ruler of your partnership sector is in your solar sixth house, work and partnership can be connected in some significant manner during this cycle, such as meeting a partner through work or services, or working with a partner.
This is also an excellent time for simplifying and structuring your life.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Career, Reputation, Status
Your 2015 Cancer Horoscope, Uranus Profile, points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March 2011, you entered a lengthy cycle in which career and public image matters can be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. This influence continues throughout 2015 and beyond, until March 2019.
Your career, professional projects, reputation, and public image continue to speed up, stimulate, and open up this year. These areas of life can be unpredictable – the wild card area of life – but also highly stimulating and innovative. You can bring fresh insight into your work. You can also learn to let go of limiting self-consciousness. As long as you don’t push it too far, you can free yourself from some of the fears you have of not living up to others’ expectations, particularly those of parents or society in general.
This may be a time when you take an unexpected turn in your work. Make sure you don’t jump on a bandwagon that is impractical. Also, while you prefer to set your own pace in your work, try not to become a loner in your professional life. Others can have important input. By nature, you are not the biggest of risk takers, but more courage is with you this year.
Challenges in these areas of life may come when Uranus squares Pluto in mid-March. For some of you, a partnership can generate gossip or there could be some challenges finding a balance between a relationship and your career goals. Watch that you don’t let either slip in preference for the other. In early May and then in October, you could be feeling overwhelmed with daily tasks, and you may feel that you’re not only doing more than your share, you’re not getting much recognition or appreciation for it. When Uranus trines Jupiter until June, wonderful energy is with you for gently pushing the boundaries and making progress. Income and work can improve considerably at this time with a fresh, progressive attitude.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Partnerships, Friends, Groups, Creativity, Romance, Communications
Your 2015 Cancer Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It’s a time for “out with the old, in with the new”.
Attitudes towards partnerships, close personal relationships, compromise, and significant others continue to transform this year. From October forward is strong for these matters, when communications open and can boost or attract a partnership. You are exposed to new ideas, choices, and opportunities. Studies, writing, and other communications can open up and connect you with a partner or with opportunities to expand. More challenging periods are possible in February, March, and mid-May, when career and public demands or goals can seem to be at odds with a partnership, and when your own desire for freedom clashes with the agenda of a significant other. There can also be differences in values or conflicts over money or respect.
In 2015, the Moon’s Nodes and eclipse activity continue to affect your sectors of career and family. Changes are required in order to strike a balance between the two. You are challenged to improve your domestic life this year. With the North Node moving through your family, home life, and personal life sector most of the year (until October-November), you can benefit greatly from improving and focusing your energy on family. This is one of the major keys to happiness in 2015.
As well, and especially in the last quarter of the year, your sectors of learning, transportation, and communication are in focus. Your ability to manage the demands of daily life is tested, and changes may be necessary in order to become more effective. Your personal belief system is also evolving this year. Transportation can be a sudden issue. Opening up communications with others is a challenge but also a potential joy this year. Learning to slow down, to be sensitive to social graces and networks, and to sensitize yourself to others’ needs and communications without fear of being tied down, will release you from some of your nervous tension and help you to achieve more happiness and inner balance. Try not to run from small talk, even if you fear that you’ll waste your time. The North Node in your communications sector from October-November forward points to a real need to reach out, connect, make contact, learn, and communicate, as these things can bring wonderful benefits and much joy to your life, particularly around the eclipses in March and September.
