This Month: Cancer
April 2018 Monthly Horoscope for Cancer: You begin the month having just awakened to the intense need to attend to your personal life, family, and home, dear Cancer, although April as a whole is more about your career, public life, or outside responsibilities than private time. People are seeking you out. Venus has just moved into your friendship sector, gracing your networking and socializing with good, warm energy. Balancing your home life with responsibilities to the rest of the world is essential now, but your professional or public life continues to need your keen attention.
Mars spends much of April in between Saturn and Pluto, which is a rather tough place to be! This can point to the need to work through issues with others, particularly in your one-on-one relationships and partnerships. On the 2nd, a Mars-Saturn meetup suggests a reality check in this area. Others may seem to be blocking you or slowing you down, or responsibilities to others can feel weighty. If a relationship withstands pressure, this can be a time for coming up with a new and improved plan to go forward.
The 3-5 can be a tougher point in Mercury's retrograde cycle - a time when certain projects or initiatives stall, or when you need to deal with technical problems that seem to set you back. However, these things may very well be blessings in disguise, either because you end up discovering alternative methods that are better, or you get the time to make edits that help you in the long term. The retrograde period ends on the 15th, and things seem to blocks seem to naturally loosen and you have the information you need to move forward.
The 10-14 is a nice little window for making relationships work. At times this month, you can feel more comfortable in the pressure-free world of acquaintances than in close partnerships. However, you have the chance to bring everything together, particularly during this window. You are gently challenged to improve, take positive action, and go after what you want now. It's a good time to repair or enhance a friendship and for shared activities. You're making a good impression on others now. Forgiveness and grace are reigning over insecurities. Imagination soars, and inspiration can be found through friends and new experiences. Working through relationship bumps and bruises is a big part of April, as it's not a time for pushing your agenda too far. This is a time for learning about the needs and concerns of important people in your life and how this can positively impact your life.
April holds terrific opportunities for finding satisfying ways to express yourself uniquely or creatively. Matters of the heart can have an almost magical quality to them, although also intense! Ups and downs are par for the course right now.
The 15th features Mercury's direct turn as well as a New Moon at the top of your solar chart. While it's important to take it slowly, it's a fine time for pulling together recent endeavors and efforts related to your reputation, career, responsibilities, and long-term life path goals and taking the initiative. It may not be until after the 23-26 that significant others seem to get on board with your plans, though.
The Sun's entrance into your networking sector on the 19-20 helps alleviate some of the pressure to perform. Fortunately, Venus has padded the way for you, and you're in particularly good shape with groups and friends. The 22-23 can see a relationship, romance, or creative project advancing. You are making your own luck under a Mars-Jupiter connection that encourages you to follow your heart with courage. You may be going out on a limb to express your affections. Even if the reception seems a little cool right now, you're likely to make a good impression. Alternatively, a relationship or significant someone may be boosting your confidence in yourself. Pairing up with somebody can be beneficial now. While cooperative action is favored, you can also do well in friendly competitions. It may be only after the 26th when relationships feel less implosive, however! Even so, the 24th brings Venus into your privacy sector, and you may feel the need to review, question, or simply take time processing your feelings and affections. This is a prelude to Venus' transit of your sign when you blossom (starting on May 19th).
On the 25-26, you are attracting intense energy into your life through your relationships. For some of you, it's a time of fierce competition or difficult people getting the upper hand in your life. For others, issues of trust may be at the root of conflicts or reunions, or power dynamics become difficult to tolerate. Any disputes between you and someone close to you that have been stewing for some time can emerge now and demand action, and avoidance isn't an option! The mood is dense, sensitive, and complicated. Aim to be strong within yourself so that you can project this strength outward, as people around you can be trying to get their way or could be more forceful and assertive than you. The 29th brings a Full Moon to your romance and creativity sector, and feelings to bloom! This is a time for recognizing true feelings that you may have kept at bay. It can also be a call to pay more attention to your personal life if you've been overdoing outside commitments and activities.
This Year: Cancer
2018 Yearly Horoscope Overview
The year ahead is strong for self-expression, personal enjoyment, and creative pursuits, dear Cancer. You’re likely to boost your earnings, although you’re also inclined to spend more! Serious energy is brought to partnerships in 2018.
Until November, Jupiter continues to bring fullness to your life in the areas of recreation, romance, and creativity. Many opportunities arise for you to enjoy yourself. For most Cancers, this period is about rediscovering the child within. Also, as Jupiter moves in harmony with your sign, your ability to take things in stride grows by leaps and bounds. You might hunger for more channels to express your unique qualities. Romance may get a boost. You’re more fertile on many different levels, and you’re inclined to seek out various pursuits and pleasures that satisfy your increased desire to have fun, play, and express yourself.
Also this year, you’re learning to trust your instincts, natural talents, and ability to stand on your own. You are learning to depend on yourself more and to establish your self-worth through your own efforts. Pressures from a partner or in a core relationship may feel uncommonly weighty now, and this can sometimes interfere with your work on developing a stronger sense of self-worth and independence, but shouldn’t deter you.
You have one of the most playful transits going on in your dating and entertainment sector, but a rather strict, serious, and mature energy going on in your partnership and binding relationship house this year. This can be a very significant year for love, both casual and serious. In order to experience balanced relationships, you need to work on building inner peace, rather than focusing on achieving peace and balance through relationships. This year and the next, you are discovering or re-discovering your true needs and desires. You have a powerful Solar Eclipse in your sign in mid-July encouraging you to discover your independence, as well.
A long-term cycle that’s influenced your career for many years will come to an end in March 2019. This year, you’ll get hints of what the new cycle is all about, and you’ll enjoy more predictability regarding your career, life path, status, or reputation. Dramatic ups and downs in your career path tend to subside, although you are still required to adapt to subtle shifts. The cycle that’s emerging now is set to shake up your social circle. Some friendships may be left behind, and new ones are made, although they may not be quite as reliable as the ones you had in the past. You may be moving with a new or different crowd. You are less prone to rebel in 2018, and more inclined to live more authentically.
Jupiter moves to your work and health sector in November, and this transit brings increased opportunities for work (possibly even a little too many!) and more interest in, and enjoyment of, health routines, self-care improvements, and work projects. This theme will develop more fully in 2019. Also in November, the North Node moves into your sign, and you’re making the significant discovery that you can stand on your own and succeed very well in so doing!
This Year in Love: Cancer
2018 Love Horoscope for Cancer
Cancers benefit from one of the most fun transits for love and entertainment in 2018 until November 8th: Jupiter in the solar fifth house. First off, Jupiter transiting in harmony with your sign has you giving off easygoing, happy, and sincere vibes. Secondly, it happens to fall in a sector of your solar chart that is all about romantic expression, dating, and expressing yourself with charm and appeal. This transit is a fluid, warm, comfortable one. When it comes to casual relationships, this transit brings out a freer, more expressive, and more creative “you”, in your own rather quiet way.
This transit encourages you to share your affections and creations with others. It can help open up channels for recreation, play, entertainment, hobbies, and creativity. It can also bring more opportunities to date and connect with others romantically. These are not necessarily the types of relationships that lead quickly to marriage, but they’re likely to be enjoyable and confidence-boosting. And who knows what may come of your newfound freedom to explore?
As well, Jupiter in your romance sector receives beautiful support, including an aspect with Pluto, your romance sector ruler, suggesting excellent results in your love life.
Even so, Saturn has just moved into your partnership house, and this is a rather serious, mature, and responsible transit when it comes to close, binding relationships. It’s a longer-term transit, too, lasting until 2020. Jupiter and Saturn working together tends to produce results, and with both of them working hand-in-hand in love relationship houses in your solar chart, this can be a very significant year for love — both casual and serious.
In fact, relationships are likely to make headlines in your life this year and the next couple of years.
The North Node moves into your sign from November 6th forward. This transit will continue throughout 2019 and into 2020, and brings a strong need to discover your independence. This does not mean excluding a partner from your life. It simply means that in order to experience balanced relationships, you need to work on building internal peace, rather than focusing on achieving peace and balance through relationships. It’s time to take care of yourself and discover or re-discover your true needs and desires! You also have a powerful Solar Eclipse in your sign in mid-July encouraging you to discover your independence. In 2019, eclipses will occur in your partnership sector as well, and you have big players Saturn and Pluto in that area of your chart. It’s big news for learning about what and who you want in your life…cont’d
