2019: Cancer Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
The broader themes of 2019 include partnering and independence, along with your work, health, and habits, dear Cancer. There is a continued focus on partnerships and getting along with others, as well as a new theme in which you’re exploring your ability to stand on your own two feet. You’re encouraged, in fact, to take the lead! Tied into these efforts involves improving self-care programs and your health and habits. More joy can be discovered in your daily routines and your work this year, and this helps you thrive across the board.
Until December, Jupiter transits your solar sixth house, boosting the availability of work as well as your joy in having a daily purpose and successful routine. 2019 can be a year of increased job satisfaction and vocational fulfillment. There can be times when you feel you’re juggling since you frequently experience a call to explore beyond your daily routines. Travel, publishing, sharing, and education can compete for your time, but as long as you don’t stretch yourself to the limits, this is a robust year for work.
Areas of uncertainty and confusion, but also of potential inspiration, continue to be education, travel, publishing, belief systems, and personal philosophies. This year, however, you’re likely to feel more directed, grounded, and purposeful than usual, even if some of these areas remain undefined. A partner or special friend can help reinforce your ideas, or bonding with an extended family or people with whom you share a common interest can be especially rewarding. A partner or a relationship can inspire you to reach new heights, explore new places or ideas, or to learn a new skill.
A big shift this year involves Uranus transiting your social sector. You had a sneak peek of this in 2018, and this year, it sticks with you from March forward. This is a lively, although colorful sporadic, transit that excites activities and connections with groups and friends for the better part of the coming seven years! Your very sense of belonging is in flux during this lengthy transit when you may be finding yourself through your associations. There can be new friendships or changing interests that connect you with an all-new crowd. Unusual or colorful people and alliances can figure strongly in your life now.
Uranus is leaving your career and reputation sector behind, and these areas are likely to stabilize, although Chiron is taking its place, and you have more “work” to do involving getting to know your place in the world, your life path, and the right career for you. You need these things to authentically reflect your personality at this stage of life. This is a strong transit for the healing professions, and it’s a long-term one.
An exceptional period for studies, interests, writing, and communicating or transit arises from the last week of August through September when a concentrated focus on your solar third house suggests you should keep your eyes and ears open for exciting projects.
With the Uranus move, too, you’re feeling less rebellious or challenged by the rest of the world, which helps you to discover your true calling more organically. This is about feeling, exploring, and intuiting rather than reacting, and it’s good for you. The outer planets that challenge you this year are fewer, overall. The ones that do are Saturn and Pluto challenges coming from your partnership sector, and one-to-one relationships are the central area of potential strife and tension. By December, Jupiter moves into this same position along with these heavyweight planets, and while it will also be in opposition to your sign, Jupiter helps you find more joy and pleasure in your one-to-one relationships. This wonderful influence will stick with you through most of 2020.
Key Events in 2019 for Cancer:
Outer Planet Transits:
Jupiter square Neptune from January to September. We are looking for a new source of inspiration, but we have the tendency to latch onto impractical dreams or plans to remedy the situation. For you, Cancer, uncertainties about your future, beliefs, or studies can seem to interfere with your daily routines, work, and chores. Watch for neglecting important areas of your life because you’re not sure where you’re headed.
Helping you out with this, however, is:
Saturn sextile Neptune from January to November. This reinforcing aspect helps ground you. It can be a fabulous help, even if it’s a rather subtle influence. While there continue to be important life lessons and perhaps challenges in a close partnership, you’re finding outlets for any stress or tension and finding ways to balance out attention to practical and spiritual affairs. Relationships have better outlets, too.
Also this year:
Saturn conjunct South Node (April to September) and Pluto conjunct South Node (April). Difficulties are possible related to attempts to hang on to people or relationships only for fear of change. Certain alliances or one, in particular, may be preventing you from growing, improving, and thriving, and asserting or enjoying your independence.
Uranus trine Jupiter in December. This happens near the end of the year in Earth signs. In your solar chart, we find Earth signs in your social sectors and this boost comes to your relationships It’s about innovation, progress, new technology, methods, or approaches, and it’s a positive development!
There can be innovations and changes in a partnership or friendship now, or a relationship can be a strong source of intellectual companionship. There can be a partnership or plan that has you working towards realizing some of your most treasured wishes. A spirit of friendship, freedom, and acceptance is present now and can awaken a wonderful feeling of moving forward within you. A new or improved goal to work towards can have the same invigorating effect on your mood. This is a time for exploring, taking healthy risks on a social level, and letting go of pre-conceived ideas of what friendships and relationships “should” be.
Significant minor transits:
Venus conjunct Jupiter — twice! On January 22 and November 24th…and this happens in your work and health sector both times, making this a special time for enjoying your chores, routines, or self-care programs, and possibly for making valuable connections with others through them.
Mars conjunct Uranus in late Aries on February 12-13. This occurs shortly before Uranus leaves your career and reputation sector for good, making it a powerful period for making final changes to a goal.
Sun conjunct Uranus in early Taurus on April 22 and Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus on May 18. Now that Uranus is consistently in your social sector, these transits can get the ball rolling with change and progress with friends and groups.
Sun conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn on December 25-27th. An opportunity period for partnerships.
New and Full Moons/Eclipses:

Because outer planet transits are lengthy, there are variations in the timing of outer planet transits for each of the three decans of Cancer, and these are shown below the main, general forecast.
There are some interesting developments for you this year, dear Cancer. Every year, we see challenges and opportunities in different areas. It’s my hope that understanding these areas of potential disruption and ease that you can make the most of these trends by seeking out the opportunities and managing the challenges.
The following chart shows the outer planets and other points in relation to your sign, revealing whether they are harmonizing with or challenging Cancer:
Grey is neutral (no direct relationship, but can be picky, nagging),
Pink is challenging (the planet is in direct, challenging relationship to your sign),
and Green is easy and supportive (the planet or point is in direct, harmonious relationship with your sign).
As is evident in the above chart, there is very little that is neutral in the year ahead — outer planets mostly either challenge or support you, which makes for a significant year. Keep in mind that challenges can have very rewarding results.

Overview: Harmony and Challenge of Outer Planets:
Cancer is an emotional Water sign, but is also of a take-charge Cardinal nature, so you fully appreciate the ability to connect with your spirit and imagination while keeping your feet on the ground – and this is one of the bigger themes of the year with Saturn sextile Neptune most of 2019. This aspect also helps alleviate some of the pressures that Saturn brings to your sign since it opposes Cancer until 2020. There are escape hatches, and satisfying ones, at that!
A nice change is Uranus moving away from its challenging transit to your sign. You’ll still feel some pressure, mostly related to relationships, but less from other sources as well.
Areas of change and occasional disruption for you in 2019 tend to be related to friendships, partnerships, and career.
This is a powerful year for work and health, and then in the last month of the year, for partnerships. Go big in these areas, but know your limits!
Your work and health sector has been an area of your chart that has faced more than usual outer planet challenges in recent years, but now things are easier, more natural, and coming together well in these life departments.
