Today's Cancer Horoscope from Cafe Astrology
April 22, 2021
Those areas of your life that can do with an update are sticking out today, dear Cancer. A Venus-Uranus alignment enlivens your interactions. Friendships can bring surprises today, or you could see a friend in a new light. It's an excellent time for exploration on a social level or with new ideas, dreams, and plans. With Uranus strong as it is today, it's wise to check in with yourself that you're making choices, not merely reacting. Ideally, you feel happily detached from a matter that once weighed you down. Curveballs thrown at you tend to nudge you in new directions. Be sure to break the routine even just a little to make the most of the day.

The Astrology of Today – All Signs
- Terrific energy is with us for family, togetherness, promoting peace, and taking care of personal matters.
- A Mercury-Vesta trine this morning favors specialized attention to a particular project or endeavor.
- We might feel pleasantly dedicated to our work or ideas.
- Our ability to focus on what we’re doing and communicating improves, and we tend to notice and consider details.
- However, as the day advances, we go off-script. Venus aligns with Uranus, and Mercury forms a semi-square to Neptune, and the need to express ourselves freely and openly comes on strongly.
- These influences encourage us to let go of rigidity.
- We’re itching for a change, whether we’re aware of this or not! Connecting with this desire can help us steer and navigate better.
- For the time being, we value stimulation and newness over permanence.
- We lose our fear of taking risks in love, with pleasure, and in social situations.
- There can be infatuations, whims, gossip, and unexpected opportunities socially or financially.
- We have a greater need for self-expression and social excitement, but we can find it all too easy to gloss over technical facts.
- With the Mercury-Neptune influence specifically, there can be cloudy thinking or a tendency to daydream.
- We may not express ourselves clearly, or others are not reading our messages well–likely, it’s a combination of the two!
- The Moon continues its transit of Leo until 9:10 AM EDT when it enters Virgo. The Virgo Moon is particular, helpful, and responsible.
- The void Moon occurs from 8:06 AM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a sextile to Mars), until the Moon enters Virgo at 9:09 AM EDT.

This Month: Cancer
April 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Cancer:
The first half of April puts you in a great position to look after the major structures in your life, dear Cancer. This is a time to give extra attention to career, long-term goals, rules, responsibilities, and performance. It can also be a time of greater visibility, and even people unrelated to your job might seem to hold you a little more accountable for your actions. As the month progresses, you become increasingly interested in fulfilling happiness goals and less focused on performance.
Despite the strong attention to your outside responsibilities, Mars continues in your privacy sector until the 23rd. Your energy levels may not be at their best during this transit, as you require more time for rest and contemplation. You might deal with a reshuffling of your priorities, desires, or projects, and this can be a temporary drain on your levels of motivation. Working on your own at your own pace would be ideal if you can manage it.
Mars enters your sign on the 23rd, after which you'll feel more outwardly effective, assertive, and decisive. Until then, extra rest can do you very well and can help you prepare. Learning your heart's desire is important now so that when you're ready to pursue it, you know which direction to head! When Mars is challenged, such as on the 9th and 19th, you may need to deal with dashed hopes and moodiness. The desire for something more exotic can be strong, and the need for some form of escape can be persistent. Engage your more creative or spiritual needs, and do your best to avoid taking on too much until you're truly ready for more. Aim to make peace with the past.
Your charisma turns up a notch this month, and part of your appeal has to do with some mystery. Keeping some things to yourself while smiling for the camera seems to be what works for you at the moment. Transits stir your need for more dynamism and creative expression in your work and possibly your private life as well. You are glowing on a professional level, and others tend to follow your lead or flock to you for advice.
The New Moon on the 11th prompts a new beginning or approach to your professional plans, long-term goals, or life path pursuits.
Your deeper relationships are strengthening, and you're particularly resourceful now. Self-improvement endeavors are highly favored. There can be a feel-good rush that comes from coming to someone's aid. Look for opportunities to express yourself from behind the scenes. It can be an excellent time for your intimate life or taking action on a private matter.
Venus moves into your social sector on the 14th, and the Sun and Mercury follow suit on the 19th, painting a different picture for the second half of April. You're turning your attention to enjoyment, friends, teamwork, and networking. You're more inclined to entertain long-term happiness goals now. Your social life is ramping up, while Mars moving into your sign on the 23rd gets you more active and involved. This transit stimulates increased personal energy, initiative, and drive. At times, however, you can feel unusually angry or impatient. Otherwise, this is an intense period for positive and healthy self-focus.
Friendships can bring surprises, or you could see a friend in an entirely different light. The last week of the month is a time for exploring new ideas, dreams, and plans. Curveballs thrown at you tend to nudge you in new directions. The Full Moon on the 26th can illuminate matters revolving around a romantic affair, creative project, or children. This is a time for pivotal discoveries of your feelings for someone or particular projects in your life.
With Pluto turning retrograde for over five months, you're likely to identify areas where you've been pushing too hard or where you've been too attached for your own good. This mission works well with a Sun-Uranus alignment that also wants you to feel lighter and freer. The last week of April is strong for social affairs, romantic and business partnerships, negotiations and agreements, and community or group involvement. You could be broadening your horizons through networking and meeting interesting people.
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!
