This Month: Cancer
Cancer July 2020 Horoscope Overview:
You begin the month in a position of personal power, dear Cancer, with the Sun in your sign (until the 22nd). Mercury is retrograde in your sign until the 12th, and you could be waiting on information or questioning recent choices.
The Lunar Eclipse on the 5th brings a close partnership or your relationship with others into focus, after a couple of weeks of quite a bit of attention to your own needs and personal plans.
This eclipse is personal to you as it’s the final eclipse in a set that has been occurring in both your sign and your opposite sign since July 2018. This can serve as a cosmic nudge towards change in a relationship or a final decision about a matter. You’re magnetic and gaining some attention. Still, love continues to be private. Slowly but surely, it's becoming less complicated. Some confusing situations or problems begin to unravel. It won't be until Venus enters Cancer on August 7th when you feel more confident of your affections and needs.
Saturn moves back into your partnership zone for its final months. This is a time for taking care of unfinished business, particularly related to partnerships. It's a good period for getting closure and dealing with relationship matters that were left dangling. Saturn is about commitment, structure, reality, and maturation, and with this transit, these things are directed toward your partnerships or close bonds.
Your ambition is stimulated and the desire or need to perform is strong in July, but it's important not to take on more than you can reasonably handle, as there can be changes of heart later.
The New Moon on the 20th is in your sign, and yes, you just had one in your sign in June! It's the second New Moon in Cancer, but this time around, it's not an eclipse. You can be itching to do something new or to express yourself in different ways. You're likely to make changes that reflect updated needs and plans. You may be in the mood for some form of makeover, which can be physical, but is more about attitude, manner, and confidence.
July is also strong for money matters as it advances, which will pick up speed further in August. You're in great shape for enjoying alternative or extra-curricular activities with a partner or for connecting with someone significant through mind-expanding experiences or non-routine activities. A relationship can be a source of inspiration, and the realization of a happiness goal seems more likely now through the support or positivity of someone special. You’re finding an increased sense of personal meaning and purpose through your contacts and explorations. You’re learning through others’ viewpoints and expanding your experiences in the process.
June 2020 Horoscope Overview for Cancer:
There is much going on under the hood for you this month, dear Cancer. It's not a time to push ahead for all, and this may be particularly the case for you, although the last week of June is certainly a motivating period.
This is an important time of the year for renewal, healing, rest, and reflection. You'll find that you're often thinking about the past, assessing individual projects (and on occasion for some of you, relationships) for their viability, and dealing with culminations. You could find you're playing a waiting game often enough this month, but for the most part, you do it in style! Activities that repair and heal your spirit and help you renew your energy stores are particularly appropriate and beneficial. You're not in the best position to move your projects forward, but it's a great time for getting your bearings. Keeping things low-profile seems appropriate.
Still, Mars is moving in harmony with your sign until the 27th, and you'll find it natural to assert yourself. Energy and confidence run higher than they usually do in the weeks before your birthday. You believe in your dreams! Certainly, Mercury spends all of the month in your sign, and some of it retrograde (from the 18th forward). Small problems are likely to crop up, but with Mars in your corner, you mostly feel on top of things.
Until the 25th, Venus remains retrograde, and it's tucked away in your solar chart, out of sight. More information may surface about a private or past issue that will help you make better plans and future decisions. From the 3rd forward, you may be a little clearer about which actions to take based on recent revelations. Still, it's best to process and digest things rather than finalize. Slowly but surely, life feels a little more straightforward in love and with pleasure and comfort from the 25th forward.
The Lunar Eclipse on the 5th is a signal that eclipses are beginning to transition out of your sign axis. It's likely to pull up some discontent and dissatisfaction, but it's also good for motivating you to make improvements. Work, health, and routines or habits come into strong focus now. There can be a bit of a scramble to get your life into better working order, and the benefits of doing so are significant. You'll be doing a lot of balancing of work/rest and emotional health and physical health in the next couple of years, and realizations occurring now can spur this process along. The first week of June tends to bring dysfunctional areas of your life to your strong attention. Desires can come on with great force, and while you should certainly listen to them, take your time with their pursuit, as emotions are heightened and it can be difficult to be objective.
Tensions can arise if you have too much on your plate or feel the need to rush things. Philosophical debates can all too quickly escalate into arguments or run into personal territory with the Sun in conflict with Mars and then Neptune from the 5-11, so watch for wasting energy on them. These transits work behind the scenes in your solar chart, obscuring the real source of your discontent. If you're becoming restless with your routine, it's best to make changes to it rather than avoid it. You're looking for experiences that add more meaning to your life and that nourish your spirit. Entertain new feelings and desires, but take your time when it comes to pursuing them.
While it's a go-slow month in many respects, there are some real opportunities to enjoy yourself. You might feel you're growing through your contact with someone special, and sharing a perspective philosophy can bring a relationship to a higher level of understanding.
The Sun enters your sign on the 20th, and then a Solar Eclipse occurs in Cancer the next day. This potent New Moon is one of the final nudges in a set of eclipses that prompt a new direction with a better understanding of your relationship needs and sense of independence. Reshaping your image if it needs tweaks can also be in focus. This is the final Solar Eclipse in your sign for many years, so make it count! It's a time to reinvent yourself in some personal way, such as with a new look or manner of expressing and presenting yourself. Still, ease yourself into this dynamic phase of your life.
Keep in mind that situations can appear more complicated than they are with Neptune's retrograde station happening around the eclipse, but you'll get used to things sooner than later. Mars moves to the top of your solar chart on the 27th, and you might be tapping into strong ambitions or a new sense of direction. You may have been focusing on making your life more enjoyable and interesting, but you're gradually shifting your attention towards taking care of business, performing, and handling your responsibilities. You can feel highly motivated to go forward on a professional or lofty project or goal.
You're likely to enjoy a sense of purpose in the last days of June. You have more stamina and patience than usual to see something through, or to work on an endeavor that doesn't have immediate rewards and results but that will produce for you over the long term. It's a good time to quit a bad habit, or to take steps towards that end, and for a boost in your reputation or credibility.
This Year: Cancer
2020 Yearly Horoscope Overview
The year is powerful for sorting out your one-to-one relationships, dear Cancer, and for discovering what you can do on your own, too. The eclipses finish up in your sign by mid-2020, and you’ll not only know where you stand, but you’re also poised for a fresh start.
The Saturn-Pluto conjunction in January helps you assess the strength of certain structures or anchors in your life, particularly involving your relationships. If they’re no longer supporting you, it may be time to break them down before rebuilding. Whether or not you rebuild the same structures or begin something new, it’s a time for recognizing the need to approach your attachments in new, more empowering ways. This influence, in many ways, is about tough love–dysfunctional elements of relating need to go, and you’ll need to be firm to take charge of your life. If something has been limiting or blocking your happiness and fulfillment in your relationships, you’re ready to do something about it.
Fortunately, you have Jupiter blessing the sector of your chart that rules committed relationships most of 2020, bringing wonderfully supportive energy into this area of your life. You’re pairing up for good reasons and good things! This can work on romantic, business, or platonic levels, depending on your current situation and disposition. It’s a brilliant and perhaps pivotal year for close relationships. With Jupiter and Pluto meeting in your partnership sector from April to November, you’re on fire, ready to make sweeping improvements.
New themes entering your life this year involve boosting wellness and wellbeing, particular attention to your support systems, and rediscovering motivation and passions about what you do (work). Venus retrogrades in your privacy sector in May and June, and Mars retrogrades in your career/reputation sector from September to November. Both events suggest you’re looking back before you move forward, encouraging you to discover (or rediscover) what’s in your heart and what drives you. It’s about learning what genuinely touches you, and it’s a powerful process. You’re coming to see those things that have been holding you back from embracing happiness.
In the second half of the year, your career goals or worldly responsibilities and status come under review. As you identify those things that are no longer exciting or motivating, you make room for discovering new passions or rediscovering old motivators that deserve a second look. At times, you may feel that your ambitions and your relationships are at odds, but both areas of your life need special attention, and neither should suffer because of the other.
You’re also in fabulous shape for expanding your mind and experiences, whether through travel, contact with new people, or studies and new interests. In fact, significant connections can be made or enhanced through these things in 2020.
It’s likely to be a beautiful period for developing your social life in perhaps non-traditional ways, but supportive and inspiring nonetheless. New ways of doing business can emerge. Still, for the most part, you’re innovating in your social life. Refreshing new options are opening up to you related to pursuing goals that make you feel connected, happy, and fulfilled. New channels for meeting people or different “types” of friends can rather quickly become your “new normal” this year. Yes, you’re doing a fair amount of inner work and development, but you’re taking the time to reach out and connect. If you’ve felt your social life fell into a rut in recent years, this is all set to change!
Saturn is transitioning out of your partnership sector, where it has spent several years, bringing reality checks and often rather heavy energy to your relationships or your concept of relationships. At times, you’ve seen the less flattering side of others, and yourself brought out through partnering. In this position, Saturn has been directly opposing your sign, and you may have often felt drained, pushed, or prodded, and perhaps tested. While Saturn moves onward on March 21st, it returns July 1st to finish up its “work” on your partnership sector, only officially leaving on December 17th. In other words, it’s on its way out, and this does help take some of the direct pressure off.
Saturn’s new influence will be more prominent in 2021, but you’ll get a taste of it this year. The goal is to identify–and then weed out–unhealthy attachments or dependencies, whether emotional or financial or both, and it’s an important process! Fortunately, you’ll have the help of Jupiter for the first leg of this transit, and you may very well enjoy yourself as you make empowering lifestyle changes.
You’re also learning to make time to rest, renew, heal, and reflect this year.
This Year in Love: Cancer
2020 Love Horoscope for Cancer
While there continues to be intense and serious energy in your partnership sector in 2020, dear Cancer, things are changing. For one, you have the lucky-break planet of joy (Jupiter) in this area of your chart most of the year. For another, Saturn is phasing out of this sector in 2020. Finally, Jupiter joins with Pluto multiple times this year, increasing your motivation and opportunity to improve your relationship situation. Many other boosts are happening this year, but these three are, in my opinion, the highlights.
Saturn continues to transit your partnership house until March 21st, and then later returns to it for its final pass from July 1st-December 17th. This is a rather serious, mature, and responsible transit when it comes to close, binding relationships. It’s a longer-term transit, too, and it’s on its way out this year (it’s been around for a couple of years now).
Jupiter and Saturn working together tend to produce results, and with both of them joining forces in your partnership sector from December 2nd, 2019 to December 17th, 2020, this can be a very significant period for committed partnerships, love-based or otherwise! There can be joy in commitment or in “getting serious” with someone.
In fact, relationships are likely to continue to make headlines in your life this year and beyond.
The year begins with Saturn and Pluto joining forces, and they do so in your partnership sector. Repeat: themes above, but intensified! This energy is about breaking down whatever isn’t working in your life regarding partnerships so that you can rebuild them in more authentic and relevant ways. Jupiter and Pluto align from April to November–they do so precisely three times, but the whole period can be considered a hot zone for this motivational combination. These two help you make improvements and powerful changes that are meaningful to you–all regarding partnership. Of course, the seventh house is about partnerships of all varieties, including business or platonic setups. It all depends on your current life circumstances, age, and where you are in your journey.
Further evidence that you’re exploring your independence and partnering this year is a set of eclipses occurring in your sign and partnership sector until mid-2020.
The North Node moved into your sign on November 6th, 2018. This transit continues until June 2020, bringing with it a strong need to discover your independence. This does not mean excluding a partner from your life–it merely means that to experience balanced relationships, you need to work on building inner peace, rather than focusing on achieving peace and balance through relationships. It’s time to take care of yourself and discover or rediscover your true needs and desires!
