Today's Cancer Horoscope from Cafe Astrology
August 20, 2019
While there can be some tensions to deal with revolving around relationships or finances today, dear Cancer, it can serve to balance out your thinking along realistic and practical lines. Insecurities may lead to missed connections, and improvisation may not be natural for the time being if you are feeling out of sync. Keep in mind that people can be standoffish with a Venus-Saturn influence active now. Worries about limited resources or the disapproval of someone in your life can dampen your spirits somewhat. As the day advances, a Mercury-Jupiter aspect comes into play and serves to lighten the mood. It also encourages you to think in bigger terms. It's an excellent time to make financial plans and to discuss strategies for reaching your goals. A problem that has bothered you might resolve itself. Your vision of an issue is broad, and this helps you to put things into perspective. Your supportive role is not always recognized but could be "seen" now. With more faith in your abilities and your worth now, it could be a good time to attract positive feedback from others.
Creativity: Good ~ Love: Good ~ Business: Good

This Month: Cancer
You'll find a great need to settle in and enjoy yourself in August, dear Cancer, but as the month advances, your curiosity increases. This can be a slightly indulgent month as your interest in comfort is active, and you want to enjoy what you have. Fortunately, you are more able to attract the things you want and need right now. You might make some very sound investments, particularly on items that improve your health or working environment, especially around the 6-8. Financially, you seem to be in a good position to move forward with the plans you do make. You're more focused on your needs now, and this is a necessary and useful process when done in moderation. You're getting your bearings!
In the first half of the month, you're especially interested in focusing on the positive things you already have in place in your life. Even so, your interest in work and self-care programs that inspire and motivate you is strong and rising. Money, business, work, and health matters are favorable. You're ready to make the most of a situation, or you're willing to take slow and steady steps to improve your life. You have no interest in pushing things, and this attitude works well for you! Pacing yourself makes sense.
A winning attitude attracts favorable circumstances, mainly related to work and business, and the chance to make your daily life or chores better, and even joyful can emerge. You may see what was blocking you in the past as you slow down, savor, and observe. At the same time, motivation for work and health programs increases. The next several months are excellent for benefits from work, services, and health. For now, you're easing forward, and it feels comfortable.
The Full Moon on the 15th can bring a reminder of overspending for some, but it can also be a time when you have cause to celebrate. As the month advances, it's an active time for changing mental interests, the entertaining original concepts, imagination, and networking, and this energy will continue into September. While at times you might be a little too quick to communicate or to present your ideas before they're truly ready, you are brimming with beautiful ideas and discovering all-new interests that inspire and motivate you. You are especially passionate about your ideas, and you enjoy sharing them with others. Speaking, writing, and learning are in sharp focus.
The last half of the month is a solid period for your relationships, and in particular with friends and siblings. You're likely to strengthen your connections through shows of support and positive actions. Influences now boost your personal appeal in your communications, and they serve to excite your passions towards a particular project or learning endeavor. Conversations can be stimulating. You may be especially motivated to get a project started or to put finishing touches on a venture already in progress. This is also an excellent time to make a romantic connection.
New interests and possibly love opportunities can be part of the picture in the last week of the month. Some of you could meet someone special through the phone, online, at school, or possibly in your neighborhood. You're especially open to new ideas, topics, and friendships. Mental stimulation and variety are what you seek. There may be a surprising new crush, craving, or interest, and unusual or unconventional advice may be part of all of this. You may be pushing boundaries just a little in your conversations and interactions, and this can lead to exciting discoveries. People are particularly enamored by your unusual ideas and progressive outlook. Opportunities can come from or through friends, groups, meetings, and communications. Exploring different ways of relating and communicating can be satisfying. Efforts to learn or develop skills are favored. Breakthrough thinking or sudden, positive discoveries can happen, and freeing yourself from a burdensome commitment or chore may figure strongly.
This Year: Cancer
2019 Yearly Horoscope Overview
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.
This Year in Love: Cancer
2019 Love Horoscope for Cancer
Saturn continues to transit 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 together in your partnership sector from December 2nd, 2019 to December 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 make headlines in your life this year and the next couple of years.
Until December 2019, Jupiter is moving through your work and health sector, and you can be pouring a lot of energy into your work, daily routines, and health pursuits. This is a time of special self-care.
Further evidence that you’re exploring your independence and partnering this year is a set of eclipses occurring in your sign and partnership sector all year and until mid-2020. The North Node moved into your sign on November 6th, 2018. 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 powerful Solar Eclipses in your sign and opposite sign this year. Eclipses in your partnership sector along with big players Saturn and Pluto in that area of your chart means it’s big news for learning about what and who you want in your life. This can be a make-or-break period for many Cancers’ relationships!
Saturn is your partnership sector ruler, and as such, has rule over your more serious or binding partnerships. With Saturn in its own sign and in his own terms, Saturn is happy and performs particularly well. Capricorn is a serious, mature energy much like Saturn, and you are likely to be taking committed relationships quite seriously this year and the next. Older, more mature, or more serious partners can figure strongly now. You seek out a bit of convention or tradition in your relationships.
In 2019, Saturn forms a wonderful link to Neptune, and Neptune is currently a long-term guest in your sector of expansion, foreign connections, education, publishing, sharing ideas, long-distance travel, and adventurous non-routine activities. This can point to ..cont’d
