Today's Cancer Horoscope from Cafe Astrology
August 03, 2021
You might aim to take things easy today, dear Cancer, with the Moon in the sign behind yours all day. This time of the lunar month is good for winding down. Even so, today's Mercury-Uranus square can be a bit disorienting. You could find that you're clashing with a friend about an idea or core value before you get to a greater understanding of one another. Impulsiveness with your money is possible now, and this may not sit well in a relationship. Watch for overshooting and communications that you fire off without thinking. Avoid doing things so quickly that you end up missing the mark. It may be best to look for the moments of inspiration and pay attention to them while focusing on keeping yourself grounded. Ideally, if this transit stirs things up, it leads to exciting ideas.
Creativity: Good ~ Love: Excellent ~ Business: Fair

August 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Cancer:
You have a good head for business or your practical affairs this month, dear Cancer. You're giving special thought to making your life more comfortable and secure. There can be a particular focus on your finances, personal possessions, ability to earn, what you have to offer the working world, and your talents and resources in August. By a few days after the New Moon on the 8th, you're ready to put a plan in place and start fresh. New beginnings on a financial or business front are likely.
You're likely to see a financial or respect issue with more clarity and objectivity. Something dawns on you, or important news comes in that helps you make decisions about money, income, and relationships. The New Moon on the 8th can prompt a new approach to money. It's a time to consider changes to how you manage money or the attitude that drives the ways you attract money and possessions into your life.
August can also be a strong time for learning, communicating, and developing skills. You're putting your feelers out, and your curiosity takes you places! Relationships start or improve with creative communication.
Until the 16th, Venus continues to move through your communications sector. This transit refines, improves, and enhances your abilities to socialize, learn, communicate, and make connections. There could be purchases or gifts that help you connect and learn. You present your ideas and comments with charm and ease during this cycle. Making social connections and sharing your ideas come smoothly and naturally. You are more charming and creative with your words, and love can be more mental and verbal during this cycle. Romance is about a meeting of the minds. There can be unexpected assistance or kindness from a neighbor or acquaintance.
Mars spends the entire month in this sector, and Mercury and the Sun join in as the month progresses. You are incredibly motivated to connect, communicate, learn, and share, although you should watch for haste. While you can make a lot of headway fast, there can be some errors or things you overlook. Choose your words wisely since you're inclined to speak as quickly as you think, which can sometimes lead to problems. It's wise to watch for impatience with your words and movements.
Life speeds up, others seem to demand more of your attention than usual, and the pace of your life can seem to run ahead of you at times. It's a fine time for a new mental pursuit or project, if only you have a chance to focus on it! You're excited to learn, communicate, or pursue your personal interests. It can certainly be hectic at times, but you're up for the challenge. Exciting ideas can come to you, and the hatching process can be refreshing. Efforts to learn or develop skills are favored.
From the 16th, spending quality time at home is most attractive! The focus can be on bringing more harmony, balance, and beauty to your personal life, home, and family. The second half of August is good for connecting with your own heart and enjoying what you discover--you're embracing your needs for comfort, safety, and familiarity! Home improvement, real estate, and other property or home-related matters are in favor. You might enjoy and benefit from investing in your comfort and home life.
Uranus turns retrograde on the 19th, and for the next five months, things tend to calm down on the social front. It's a valuable period for processing recent changes and events with friends, and it benefits you immensely, helping prevent impulsive, regrettable decisions. When you act from your heart rather than merely reacting to others and circumstances, you do yourself a service.
The Full Moon on the 22nd can open your eyes to a financial matter that you might have put off or overlooked. There can be a turning point now, or your feelings for someone blossom. You should, however, keep your eye out for sudden increases or overexpansion that cause you some personal stress. There's no point in shooting for an unrealizable goal if it prevents you from enjoying what you already have. This lunation can help you finalize something or get the last word on a matter.
You're branching out more often as the month advances. In your daily life, you are likely to experience more communication, movement, and activity, in general. It's a fine time to reach out to people you don't always connect with, take up new studies or interests, and share your ideas with others.
This Year: Cancer
2021 Yearly Horoscope Overview
Your private life, inner world, and intimate life are in the spotlight in 2021, dear Cancer.
Themes recently entering your life involve boosting wellness and wellbeing, particular attention to your support systems, and rediscovering motivation and passions about what you do (work).
You may have been reworking and reviewing your career goals or worldly responsibilities and status in the latter part of 2020, and you’re now more “in the know.” Ideally, you’ve made some room for discovering new passions or rediscovering old motivators. You begin 2021 with a stronger sense of what you want. New ways of doing business continue to emerge.
Unique or non-traditional themes continue in your social life this year, and in some ways, are more prominent, sometimes problematic. You’re innovating and adapting to changing scenery with friendships and networks.
With Saturn now consistently in your intimacy sector, the goal is to identify and then weed out unhealthy attachments or dependencies, whether emotional or financial or both. It’s a powerful process! Fortunately, you have the help of Jupiter for the first leg of this transit, for much of 2021, and you may very well enjoy yourself as you make empowering lifestyle changes.
You continue to appreciate the need for time to rest, renew, heal, and reflect this year as the North Node finishes up its transit of your privacy sector. Getting to a better balance between work and rest is the challenge this year, and it seems that committing to taking more quality downtime is the path to this end.
You’re getting in touch with deeper desires or hidden elements of your relationships and yourself in 2021. You’re learning who and what you can count on, financially and emotionally.
The year is strong for learning about and attending to your inner needs and resources more diligently. While you’re phasing into a more outgoing period when Jupiter harmonizes with your sign, the year holds remarkable opportunities to improve, prepare, straighten out, and discover, especially in the worlds of intimacy, personal growth, and finances. Financial help or advice, dealings, and support can be in stronger focus.
The year can be favorable to work through tax or debt issues, gain support or backing for financial initiatives, or combine resources/talents with a partner. Lifestyle changes, living more joyfully, or committing to taking better care of health can be in focus.
There is a contrast between the serious, profound, and intense energy related to your intimate world in 2021 and experimental, rebellious, freedom-loving themes in your social life. Your relationships with different people can be markedly different.
On career or public fronts, you’re learning to live your truth, striving toward more authentic life path goals or career paths, and being honest with yourself.
This Year in Love: Cancer
2021 Love Horoscope for Cancer
The year seems more about what’s no longer happening in your chart than what’s new, dear Cancer. Saturn has phased out of your partnership sector in 2021, and this takes off some of the direct pressure on you to manage your close relationships, for one. Jupiter has left your partnership sector, and eclipses are no longer happening in your sign. Overall, relationship headlines are not as dramatic in 2021.
Jupiter in your intimacy sector much of the year (until May 13th, and then from July 28-December 28) can work magic on your intimate and sexual relationships. Sexual opportunities are likely to abound, or your focus on one partner becomes more expansive, warm, and intimate. However, Saturn is here too, so it’s temperate, moderate energy rather than a wildly expansive one.
Uranus in your social sector (until 2026!) points to lively, unusual, and exciting friendships continuing from last year. It can also indicate disruptions and unreliability in your social life, as well as off-and-on affinities. Interestingly, Uranus is one of two rulers of your intimacy sector, and with it spending several years in your friendship/networking sector, for some Cancers, there can be significant intimate connections with friends or friends of friends.
There is a contrast happening between the serious, profound, and intense energy related to your intimate world, and experimental, rebellious, freedom-loving themes in your social life. Essentially, you’re likely to notice markedly different energy in your life with different relationships this year.
Power struggles and conflicts in close partnerships are not entirely a thing of the past since Pluto will still spend more time in your partnership sector (it’s a long-term guest here), but Saturn has moved on and eclipses have left your sign for a while, so life is less intense. Ideally, you have a deeper understanding of your needs. You can be especially…cont’d
Here’s to a happy and successful day!
