Cancer’s symbol alone is what we start with here because this interesting glyph looks like a 69 turned sideways or a mirror image of the number 6 or 9. It is really a crab although that was not the original symbol of this sign, the Egyptian scarab beetle or dung beetle was the original symbol of the sign Cancer and is portrayed on numerous esoteric pictographs, markings and carvings around the world. The beetle is a symbol of the soul and also a sign of birth as well. Cancer is considered the broad gate to which people pass in taking incarnation on the planet. All souls beginning a new cycle of work or karmic responsibility come into incarnation under the sign of Cancer first. Cancer is also considered to be the sign of mass or the mass consciousness of humanity. Talking about the mass a great astrologer by the name of Robert Ball said that we come to this Earth for two reasons: 1, to rid ourselves of karmic debt and responsibility and 2, to develop natural talents and abilities. Cancer is the primordial sign of the feminine as all things are born of woman and Cancer is the gateway just as Mom is our gateway to coming into this world. Cancer rules the water, the ocean and the sea which are more areas related to mass. Cancer is a cardinal water sign of the zodiac which brings much sensitivity to sign on a psychic level and telepathy is another function that has relation with Cancer because of the water nature and how the beings in the sea communicate with signals that travel through the wavelengths of our huge mass oceans. Cancer is a sign that has great affinity with the sea obviously and sea creatures especially shell creatures. Cancer is a very changeable and emotional sign as is the oceans and the seas and is very security oriented. Cancer as with all the other water signs of the zodiac are very hypnotic both in the ability to hypnotize and be hypnotized. We live at the bottom of an ocean of air and are considered to be crustaceans in the eyes of other advanced types of beings in the solar system and beyond. So our apparent king of the hill attitude is illusionary to say the least. We came from the sea, life began there just like in the womb we float in a sea of embryonic fluid. Our blood which is the oceans within us has in fact very similar properties as the sea, in fact an emergency blood transfusion of seawater will save a person’s life. All the blood subdivisions as well would come under Cancer. Cancer is said to rule Scotland, Holland, New Zealand, Burgundy and Africa. The plant kingdom would also be under Cancer’s rule being a mass sign and the plant kingdom. Cancer also has affinity with the solar plexus chakra as does the Sun and the stomach. Cancer is the gateway, the gateway to incarnation and the beginning of cycles. Does this mean that our seas are a gateway of some kind? That is up to you to figure out. Souls incarnating under the sign of Cancer will be of a very sensitive nature although on the outside they may appear very hard or rough as the shell of a crab appears. But underneath they are soft and mushy as are people under this sign. Cancers are very sensitive, home-loving, mothering, psychic and can be very adept cooks, chemists, alchemists and good in any occupation dealing with liquids, especially the ocean. Divers, marine biologists, sailors are a few occupations that Cancers would be ideal in. They can be very psychic and sensitive to vibrations coming from just about anywhere, they are moody and emotional characters who can be up one day and down the next. The Moon has affinity with Cancer on the mundane level and the Moon rules the tides as well all know. Yet esoterically Neptune is said to have rulership over this sign and again Neptune is the great depths of the solar system as well as all seas and oceans within this galaxy. The moon has affinity with the surface of oceans and Neptune rules the depths. Cancer is action and they are very active and usually have busy schedules and like to keep a busy agenda. Cancer as with the other water signs has to watch for addictive tendencies within their behavior, not only in regards to alcohol or drug dependency but emotional addictions and false securities as well. Parts of the body under Cancer’s rule are the breasts and mammary glands, the upper gastrointestinal tract including the esophagus and the stomach. Also the upper lobes of the liver and the pancreas. Cancer also partially has to do with the lymph glands in the breast area and the blood plasma. Interesting to note is when speaking of blood plasma. Saliva in the mouth and other fluidic substances of the body are under Cancer’s rule to at least a partial degree, some of these have overlaps with other signs. Cancer is a mass sign as said before and many Cancer people will be up on the latest mass trends, activities, fashions, etc. Spiritual mediums a lot of times are Cancers or have heavy planets in Cancer in their astrological charts. Also occupations that requires precise timing to be effective are also good things for Cancers like the roller coaster stock market or other type of business in that arena. Cancers are natural alchemists as are all the cardinal signs of the zodiac. Cancers are very good at mixing things together in order to come up with a defined goal or end result. Be it cooking, chemistry or fusion of the soul with the personality. Cancers are initiators and on a negative note can be quite selfish and materialistic. Interesting to note that Taurus, Gemini and Cancer all can be grossly swayed by glamour and public opinion which regarding Cancer can be easily seen because it’s a mass sign. Cancer needs to become more independent and original and use their tremendous artistic and creative potential that they have especially in regards to sending a message to the world be it via painting, mixing, synthesizing, telepathy or their own devised way. Cancer is not a sign of overt strength, their strength lies in their sensitivity and vulnerability and their reception of vibration. Cancers bring the message from the sea and open the gateway for the mass to enter. When pondering life within the constellation of Cancer we can’t help but consider the existence of aquatic type beings or consciousness that exist within this realm. Cancer as a constellation is not very bright in the sky and it’s relatively small when compared to others. There would also be a nocturnal aspect to these consciousness types for Cancer is a night sign as is Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus and Gemini. We would say there are many different levels of consciousness within this system and it would be of a mass nature or a large number of beings acting or working as one. We are dealing with denser atmospherics to what we’re used to and of course pressure related factors because of the depths of the water and air within this system. A wide variety of elementals incarnate in this system and beings that would be quite adept at camouflage and the art of change. The hidden treasure within the depths as well as pearls and opals would be under Cancer and in this system would be beings he would be adept at taking raw material and turning in into worthy treasures. Of course we are speaking on spiritual levels and talking about the evolution of the soul and its mechanism. The consciousness types in this area and we would say there would some kind of humanoid consciousness but not that we would be familiar with here on Earth on any level, and would be of the utmost adepts in telepathic communication and correlation of the mass consciousness of the galaxy. The other constellations that have affinity with Cancer is: URSA MAJOR aka The Great Bear, URSA MINOR aka The Little Bear and ARGO. Ursa Major is a huge constellation that has enough history and spiritual value to encompass a book on its own. Ursa major is the home of the seven rishis or rays which are described in detail in Alice Bailey’s “Esoteric Astrology”. There is star cluster within Cancer called “Praesepe” or the “bee hive” which is a very active, social place and is located at about 6 degrees of the constellation. This area creates a pattern of confusion or scattering when planets orbit close to the area. It is also considered a place of gathering, again exemplifying Cancer as a mass sign. Ursa Major and Ursa Minor’s relation to the word “bear” is a mystery, maybe more so to “sheep” would be accurate and in Egypt Ursa Major was known as the “Mother of Revolutions” a term we have seen referred to no where else and one that bears careful consideration. Cancers relationship we these three huge constellations portrays beautifully the souls journey from Cancer to Capricorn and the rising out of the mass and the utilization of the intuition in order to reach the height of heights and overcome the mass mind by the use of the one mind. A paradox is it not?

Health is good right now, Cancer, and you are in a strong social and party period. Still, it won’t hurt to rest and relax more until the 20th. After the 17th, there are no planets in your native element of Water (except for the Moon, on the 25th and 26th). Thus you will see more emotional insensitivity going on – don’t take it personally. This is ‘cosmic weather’. People are less in touch with their feelings. Don’t be surprised at emotional eruptions over trifles either. The tendency will be to repress feelings, so when they do get expressed, they are way out of proportion. 70% to 80% of the planets are in your Western sector, and your 7th House of Love and Social Activities is very strong. Thus, this is a period for cultivating the social graces and for seeking consensus in your actions and plans. It is very difficult to attain goals now without the co-operation of others. Adapt to unpleasant situations as best you can, and avoid power struggles or too much self-will. Put other people first and your good will come to you naturally and normally. ‘My strength is made perfect in your weakness.’ The upper and lower hemispheres of your chart are more or less in balance. Neither your 10th House of Career nor your 4th House of Family is powerful. So this is a month where you will focus on one area or the other (Home or Career) according to circumstances. You seem equally indifferent to, or equally interested in either. You are in an unusually prosperous year and your longterm prospects are wonderful. But temporarily, with Jupiter retrograde in your Money House and with Mercury retrograde (from the 2nd to the 22nd), you could be experiencing delays and snafus. Probably big financial developments are happening, so more approvals and more people are involved. A business partnership seems in the works. Money (and financial opportunity) come from social connections or the generosity of your spouse or partner. There is a need to put the financial interests of others ahead of your own these days and to focus on helping other people prosper. This attitude naturally creates personal prosperity, by the karmic law. After the 20th, channel spare cash towards debt repayment. It is a time for getting financially healthier, for reducing expenses and waste. Financial intuition is amazing this month – especially towards the end of the month. Your dreams have a strong financial import then. Many financial questions or confusions will be solved in dreams or through psychics and astrologers. Though love and social activities are active, there is a need for caution as many planets involved in your love life are retrograde. Mercury is retrograde in your 7th House of Love from the 2nd to the 22nd. And Saturn, your actual Love planet, is retrograde all month. Don’t try to rush love or judge it too much. Let love develop as it will. Your social judgement could be better too, so don’t make any important decisions one way or another.

Universal horoscope for CANCER in February

Best Days Overall: 3rd, 4th, 13th, 14th, 21st, 22nd;
Most Stressful Days Overall: 5th, 6th, 19th, 20th, 25th, 26th;
Best Days for Love: 1st, 2nd, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 25th, 26th;
Best Days for Money: 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, 10th, 11th, 15th, 16th, 21st, 23rd, 24th;

Like last month, the planetary power is almost all in the West. Your 7th House of Social Activities (and other people in general) is very strong, while your 1st House of the Self is empty (except for the Moon on the 13th and 14th). Thus, like last month, this is a time for compromise and consensus. Difficult to go it alone or have your way. It has to be ‘our’ way. So again, adapt and take a low profile. Put other people first. By the 4th, the dominance of planetary power will have shifted to the upper half of your Horoscope. You are getting more ambitious and it is a time to push them forward. Ambitions have not yet reached their peak – but their importance will now grow stronger every month. Health is good this month and will get even better after the 19th. With your Health Planet still retrograde, this is not a time for making major changes to your diet or health regime. It is a time for studying and researching these things. Health is enhanced through de-tox type regimes and through strengthening the liver, thighs and heart. Financially, the trends of last month continue. This is a good time to pay off debt and to help other people prosper – to put their financial interests ahead of your own. (This doesn’t mean that you cheat yourself, but that you think of the prosperity of others – you prosper as you help others to do so.) Your spouse or partner is prospering and continues to be generous. Job-seekers should be more patient now and research job offers more carefully. Things are not what they seem. The 17th brings a sudden financial windfall or opportunity – out of the blue. After the 19th, financial opportunity can come from foreign lands or with foreigners. Keeping a positive attitude and understanding the metaphysical laws of wealth will also bring strong results. Career is furthered in the old-fashioned way – through work. Your love life is getting better day by day. Saturn, your Love Planet, will start moving forward on the 22nd, removing obstacles, restoring confidence and helping a current relationship move forward. Venus in your 7th House of Love from the 4th onwards shows romance, parties, going out, etc. You are socializing with the young and the beautiful. Love is very idealistic this period – it has been that way for a number of years, but especially so now. Spiritual compatibility is perhaps the most important of the compatibilities these days. There is high glamour in your social sphere these days.

Universal horoscope for CANCER in March

Best Days Overall: 2nd, 3rd, 12th, 13th, 21st, 29th, 30th, 31st;
Most Stressful Days Overall: 5th, 6th, 19th, 25th, 26th;
Best Days for Love: 1st, 10th, 11th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th;
Best Days for Money: 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 22nd, 23rd;

Career urges are intensifying. By the 4th, 70% to 80% of the planets will be above the horizon. Your 10th House will become ultra-powerful after the 21st, while your 4th House of Home, Family and Emotional Issues will be empty (except for the Moon’s visit on the 19th). 80% to 90% of the planets are moving forward this month. So, this is a time for pushing hard for career objectives. Success and rapid forward progress is likely. Let go of family issues for the time being and seize the ‘outer’ opportunities coming your way. Pay rises and promotions are likely this period. You catch the favourable eye of bosses and superiors. Your good professional reputation brings financial opportunity to you. You are recognized for your contributions. Career can be enhanced through networking and the right social connections. The planets are still mostly in the West, like last month. Gradually, the percentage is changing. By the 21st, the Eastern sector is stronger than last month, but not yet dominant. So you are slightly more independent now, but still need to operate by consensus and through the exercise of social skills. Avoid self-will and too much independence. The time will soon come when you can have things your way. In the meantime, coast and prepare. Love is a little less romantic this month. Practical issues dominate. You are allured by people who can help your career. Much of your social life revolves around business or career. There is romantic opportunity with a boss or with someone involved in your career. The main danger to romance is a power struggle. You seem more socially aggressive these days and are reaching out to others. Finances are a high priority this month – much more important to you than they’ve been in a while. A happy financial opportunity (perhaps a job offer) comes around the 21st as the Sun crosses the Midheaven of your Horoscope. This could happen later for those of you born later in the Sign. Speculations turn favourable after the 21st. Money is earned easily and creatively. Be careful of over-spending. You will have more, so you can spend more, but keep things in proportion. Health is wonderful for most of the month, but rest and relax more after the 21st. Pace yourself as you focus only on what’s important to you. Your 8th and 9th Houses are very powerful this month. Thus, it is still a time for helping others prosper, paying off debt, breaking addictions and changing undesirable habits, and for personal transformation. Foreign lands call to many of you. There is foreign travel on the horizon – perhaps related to business. Educational opportunities will also come. Overall, a happy and optimistic month.

Universal horoscope for CANCER in April

Best Days Overall: 8th, 9th, 10th, 17th, 18th, 26th, 27th;
Most Stressful Days Overall: 1st, 2nd, 15th, 16th, 21st, 22nd, 28th, 29th;
Best Days for Love: 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 28th, 29th;
Best Days for Money: 1st, 2nd, 11th, 12th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 28th, 29th;

The planetary power helping your career is peaking this month. Like last month, 70% to 80% of the planets are above the horizon. But your 10th House of Career is even stronger than last month. You are in a yearly career peak – go for it full-speed ahead. Bosses and elders are still supporting your financial goals and this is still a good month for getting a pay rise or promotion. Family seems very supportive of your career goals as well – so you are not really sacrificing your family life here. Family members also seem ambitious now and your success helps them. After the 21st, your career is helped by your inner vision. You have a dream and are working hard to execute it. Psychics and astrologers have important career guidance for you as well. Career guidance might come in dreams or as hunches. Job-seekers have beautiful aspects now and Jupiter’s forward motion on the 4th shows clarity and good judgement. Overall health is good, but more rest and relaxation are called for until the 20th. With Jupiter moving forward on the 4th, you can make those health regime or dietary changes that you’ve been researching. The planetary shift to the Eastern sector of your Horoscope gets even stronger after the 21st. Now you have less need to compromise or adapt to unpleasant situations. You are more independent and can go it alone if necessary. This trend will continue over the next few months. Start thinking about how you want to design your life and then put your design into action, little by little. Mercury’s retrograde from the 26th onwards affects your dream life and ESP faculties. They need more verification. Probably what you dream is accurate, but your interpretation could be amiss. Finances are amazingly strong until the 20th. After the 20th, you might have to work a little harder for your money. Jupiter’s forward motion in your Money House shows that assets you own increase in value and indicates luck in speculations. Bumps on the road notwithstanding, wealth is on the increase. Your love life is less active after the 21st, but also less turbulent. Like last month, you seem interested in people of high status and those who can help your career. You tend to see marriage as a career move. But this attitude changes after the 21st. The need for spiritual values in a relationship still prevails. Friendships and group activities become important after the 14th. The North Node of the Moon moves into your 11th House of Friends and will stay there for the rest of the year. This shows that there is deep fulfilment from pursuing these interests. The Sun will move into this House on the 20th, showing that there are practical, bottom-line advantages to friendships and group activities as well. They support your financial goals and provide you with opportunities.

More than any other Sign, you are most affected by the Moon. Its position, aspects and phases have a direct and dramatic impact on you. 90% of what you feel on a given day has to do with the Moon. So, when we have two New Moons in a month, this is a headline for you. Throw in two eclipses (one of them Lunar) and we have a month of longterm change and adjustment. A good thing, too. The Cosmos needs to prepare you for Saturn coming into your Sign next month. The two New Moons occur in your 11th and 12th Houses. This shows that you will be receiving information and clarity about friendship issues, organizations you belong to, technological know-how, and spiritual revelation. A New Moon for you is like a ‘mini birthday’ – it’s a new cycle, a new incarnation. The old is over with and you start fresh. It’s a happy time. You should take a reduced schedule during every Lunar eclipse (there are usually about two a year). Since the Moon is your Ruling Planet, every Lunar eclipse brings an opportunity to improve your image and re-define your personality. The Lunar eclipse of the 16th occurs in your 5th House, showing long-term changes with children (these can be normal things like graduation, marriage, moving out, childbirth or pregnancy, depending on your stage of life) creative projects and a love affair (outside of marriage). Happily this eclipse is benign to you. Wouldn’t hurt, though, to avoid speculations around this period. This eclipse makes aspects to Jupiter, the Lord of your 6th House, so job changes (and for the better) are in store. Likewise with health regimes, diets or doctors. The Solar eclipse of the 31st is a more spiritual eclipse. It occurs in your 12th House of Spirituality. This eclipse is going to increase your dream life a hundred-fold, but don’t take these things at face value – much of what you see is flotsam generated by the eclipse. But you can expect much spiritual revelation and understanding to come as the eclipse blasts away psychological and mental barriers. Many will change their prayer and meditation regimes or change teachers. Others will embark on a spiritual discipline for the first time. Every Solar eclipse also brings financial changes. A good thing. You get many opportunities to fine-tune your investments and investment strategies. It’s like your Cosmic Teacher grades you twice a year. If there are weaknesses, you get a chance to correct them before they get way out of hand. The financial changes of this eclipse are going to be good – much better than even you expect. Any upheaval is going to lead to greater profits and greater wealth. You just have to wait for the dust to settle and not judge.

Though on a long-term basis you need to watch your health more, this period you get a lot of help from other planets. Health will be good. You are more concerned with financial health at the moment and that too is very good. Saturn moving into your own Sign on the 4th represents a significant turning-point in your life. It is time to re-organize and re-structure;
time to face realities which you have pushed under the rug;
time to build a foundation for the future and make a frank assessment of yourself;
time to take on more responsibility and stop looking for the ‘easy way out’ of situations;
time to take a long-term perspective on things – especially your life. 60% of the planets are now in the East and your 1st House of Self is one of the strongest in the Horoscope. Thus you are independent and have both the power and the ability to create conditions as you like them. It is a time for having your way in life. Others will conform to you. And while it is never necessary to be rude, arrogant or high-handed, it is necessary for you to stick to your guns and go your own way. Only you know what is best for you. When the 1st House is powerful, as it is this month, it is time for sensual pleasures and the fulfilment of sensual fantasies. It is a time to pamper yourself and treat yourself. (It’s about giving the body its due.) Usually the danger is excess, but with Saturn in your own Sign this is not likely to happen. This month, the planets make an important shift from the upper half to the lower half of your Horoscope. This shows a shift in attitude – a shift from ambition and career urges to your first love: home, family and emotional issues. The shift will be completed by the end of the month, but you are feeling the stirrings of this much earlier. Yet, important career changes are happening this month and this is all part of it. Mars, your Career Planet, begins an important six-month transit in the Sign of Pisces on the 17th. Thus many of you are finding that you need more education to advance your career and are seeking it. Mars will conjunct Uranus – the planet of sudden changes – from the 17th onwards (though the aspect will be exact on the 23rd). Thus there are sudden career changes happening. Some take a different career path, some change jobs, some are offered new jobs at other companies. Many are opting for more free time to be with their families and to cultivate emotional harmony. Finances are truly wonderful this month. Speculations are favourable. Lady luck is with you. Intuition is powerful until the 21st and this is the shortcut to your financial goals. After the 21st, you are taking more personal control over this area. You adopt the image of success and invest in yourself. Love is happy this month. You get your way and are being pursued. Lovers or spouses are bending over backwards to please you.

The past two years have been intensely spiritual. There was much inner growth and progress. Many of you tried to repress these experiences, but found that you could not and had to accept their reality (at least some of it). Now the time has come to apply what you have learned in the world and in your daily and personal life. This is the acid test. Your independence and personal power are still very strong in the month ahead. Continue to build your life as you desire it to be, slowly, methodically, scientifically and thoroughly. Take a long-term perspective as you work to achieve the achievable each day. Though the journey is a thousand miles, each step forward brings you closer to the goal. Eventually the goal won’t matter, only the daily progress. Life is an endless journey and we must enjoy the road. Health continues to be good. You look great – glamorous and magnetic. Your aesthetic sense is very strong and it is good time to buy personal accessories. (Many of these things are coming to you on their own.) Image-wise, you need to strike a balance between glamour and tradition. Classic styles suit you now. Many of you will favour darker colours for the next two years. Love is exceptionally good. Some of you will have to fight suitors off with a stick. It is still a good time for getting your way in love. Finance is the main headline this month. It is perhaps the most prosperous month of your year. Money is earned easily and effortlessly. Your assets increase in value. You are more interested in finance and your interest creates opportunity. Job-seekers have great success, especially after the 23rd. Your career is active, but much less important than it has been. After the 4th, the percentage of planets below the horizon increases further. Thus, your main desire is to feel good and to pursue ambitions from this ‘feel-good’ state. Family relationships seem very harmonious now. The New Moon of the 29th occurs in your 2nd House of Money, adding further power to this area of life. You can expect all kinds of new financial information to come, clearing up any confusion and helping you make right decisions. Family members become more supportive after the 29th. Buying or selling a home becomes favourable then too. Good communication – marketing, PR and sales efforts – are important after the 13th.

Retrograde activity increases this month. 40% of the planets are moving backwards through the zodiac. Thus, it’s a good time to take stock and perfect plans and projects. 60% to 70% of the planets are still below the horizon of your chart and your Career Planet, Mars, is retrograde. Thus you can safely de-emphasize the career and focus on family and emotional issues. Though over the long term you still need to pace yourself, health looks good this period. Your Health Planet, Jupiter, makes a major move from Leo into Virgo late in the month. Thus you are taking a new (and much better) attitude to health. Virgo is the Sign of health and the presence of your Health Planet in this Sign is very positive. You will be on top of things and give more attention to this area. Your Health Planet in your 3rd House (late in the month) suggests that health can be enhanced through a better diet and more attention paid to your intestines, lungs, arms and shoulders. Most of the planets are still in the East (like last month), so it is still a good time for creating your life as you desire it to be. But with 40% of the planets retrograde, you will have to proceed with caution and your progress might not be as rapid as in the past. Still, you are independent and less at the mercy of other people. Finances are unusually powerful until the 27th. By then, beneficial Jupiter should have done his work on you and you will be ready to focus on other things – developing your mind, reading, studying and travelling. Speculations are still favourable and unexpected windfalls could happen – especially around the 22nd and 23rd. This is a wonderful period for job-seekers as well. The family prospers. Property deals seem lucrative. Family is still supportive of your financial goals. After the 23rd, sales, marketing and good communication seem to be the path to profits. Good use of the media and getting the word out about your product, service or yourself is essential to the bottom line. But from here on in, finance is becoming less of an interest. Love is still very much in the air and, as mentioned in the yearly report, go slow and steady. No need to rush anything. Your social magnetism is very strong and you express it in a subtle, understated way. You keep your charms well hidden – but this modesty might even add to it. Many of you are already in a love relationship by now. If not, have no fear – it is on the way.

Most Stressful Days Overall: 5th, 6th, 12th, 13th, 26th, 27th;

Best Days for Money: 5th, 6th, 14th, 15th, 22nd, 23rd, 26th, 27th;

Like last month, most of the planets are still below the horizon, your 10th House of Career is still empty and your Career Planet is still retrograde (until the 27th). But this month, your 4th House of Home and Family becomes very powerful. So, even more than last month, this is a time for getting your home and family relationships in right order, for cultivating positive inner states of mind and for getting your emotional life in harmony. Career opportunities – no matter how lucrative – should be judged from the perspective of emotional harmony. If they don’t violate it, all well and good. If they do, pass them by. Your home and family life seem very happy this month. We see more social gatherings at home and general harmony. And if there are some family disputes, this is a time when peace and harmony can be restored. By the 23rd, the balance of power is shifting from the East, where it has been for some months. This month you are in a cusp situation – a borderline zone. 50% of the planets are in the East and 50% in the West. Thus, you are neither very independent nor very dependent. There are times when you can have your way and times when you must seek consensus. There are situations that you can change and others you will just have to adapt to. Like last month, the bottom line is enhanced through sales, marketing, media projects and good PR. After the 23rd, financial increase and opportunity can come from family or through family connections. You are spending more on the home and perhaps earning money from the home – working from home, etc. Educational interests are still strong all month. Students should do well – though they will do even better when Mercury goes forward on the 20th. Mercury’s retrograde (as the Lord of your 12th House of Spirituality) suggests a need for more verification of dream and intuitive phenomena. It’s not the dream or hunch that should be questioned, but the interpretation of it. Also be cautious about abruptly changing teachers or meditation regimes until Mercury goes forward on the 20th. Health is more delicate after the 23rd, so be sure to rest and relax more, avoid power struggles and cultivate positive states of mind. Love is a bit stormier this month than last month, but mostly after the 23rd. Your family and your beloved seem at odds. Family responsibilities seem to conflict with social urges. Perhaps there is some financial disagreement with your beloved. But these are all short-term phenomena and not the end of the relationship.

80% of the planets are now moving forwards. Thus there is rapid progress towards your goals. But this month, the balance of planetary power has shifted decisively to the West (where last month you were in a borderline situation). Thus, personal effort and self-assertion don’t bring progress – it comes through others and their good graces. This is a time for shifting your gears. Cultivate the social graces, seek consensus and adapt to uncomfortable situations as much as possible. Like last month, your Career House is empty and your 4th House of Home and Family is very powerful. Like last month, most of the planets are still below the horizon. So, continue to devote yourself to your family and to your inner, emotional life. Family issues still seem very happy (though they conflict with your social life). Family is still a source of financial support or financial opportunity. New communication equipment (or perhaps new phone lines and/or roads) are being installed in your home or neighbourhood this month. Until the 9th, it is still an excellent period for decorating or beautifying the home. Family gatherings or more entertaining from home are also happening. The conflicts between family and your beloved will ease up by the 23rd. But on the 25th, Saturn, your Love Planet, starts to retrograde, so love becomes even more cautious and careful than it has been. Your social confidence is not up to its usual standards and important decisions concerning marriage or divorce or moving in together, should be delayed. Part of the complications of love is that you are in a mood to play and not be so serious. Fun-and-games types of opportunities come your way – or for your lover as well. Both of you could use some space. Health is delicate until the 23rd, so keep in mind what we wrote last month. After the 23rd, there is great improvement. Health of children seems a concern as well. Your 5th House becomes powerful after the 23rd, so make sure you have some fun during this period. This is the time for more leisure-type activity – for creativity – and for becoming like a little child (not childish, but like a child – there’s a difference). Speculations become favourable and your personal creativity could lead to profits. Over-spending is the main financial danger after the 23rd. On the other hand, you earn money very easily. Happy career opportunities come after the 23rd and now you can see why you needn’t have worried about your career over the past few months. These opportunities don’t seem to violate your emotional comfort zone. There is a wonderful Grand Trine in Water from the 9th onwards which enhances your psychic ability, your emotional sensitivity and your general popularity. It is a good health signal too – though you should still pace yourself. People in general will be more warm and compassionate.

Universal horoscope for CANCER in November

Best Days Overall: 3rd, 4th, 13th, 14th, 22nd, 23rd, 30th;
Most Stressful Days Overall: 5th, 6th, 20th, 21st, 26th, 27th;
Best Days for Love: 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 22nd, 23rd, 25th, 26th, 27th, 30th;
Best Days for Money: 3rd, 4th, 8th, 9th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 18th, 19th, 23rd, 24th, 26th, 27th;

Retrograde activity lessens during this period and by the 8th, 90% of the planets will be forward. Like last month, it is a period of rapid progress towards your goals. Again like last month, aims are attained through consensus and the ability to gain the co-operation of others – not through selfassertion, independence or self-will. This is still a period to practise adaptability and flexibility. Neither your 4th House of Home and Family nor your 10th House of Career is strong this month, but most of the planets are still below the horizon – so family and emotional issues are more important than career. With your 5th House very strong until the 22nd, children, in particular (whether they be your own or others), are important. You get on well with them, as your child-like attitude gives you common ground and good understanding. The Grand Trine in Water that began last month will be in effect until the 23rd. This enhances your health, brings career and financial opportunity and makes you incredibly intuitive and compassionate. Social popularity increases this period. Two eclipses – both basically benign to you – happen this month. These will shake up your environment but leave you unscathed – perhaps they will even clear the obstructions to your good. Wait till the dust settles from these things and walk into your kingdom of heaven. The Lunar eclipse of the 9th occurs in your 11th House of Friends, showing that a friendship gets tested and purified. The air will be cleared. Long-simmering issues will surface so that you can take positive steps. If the friendship is real, it will become better than before. Upheavals could happen in an organization or at a club you belong to – changing your relationship to it. Every Lunar eclipse affects your image and self-concept and gives you an opportunity to change, improve and re-define these things. The Solar eclipse of the 23rd occurs in your 6th House of Health and Work. Thus there are job changes in the works, or upheavals and changes at the work place. (Sometimes people don’t leave their jobs, but other employees leave or get reshuffled, so that the conditions of the work place are changed – a new environment.) This eclipse could also signal long-term changes in your health regime, with doctors or with your diet. Flaws in your present regime are clearly revealed so that you can take positive steps. Every Solar eclipse affects finances, so you should be an experienced hand at these sort of upheavals. These eclipses give you regular opportunities to fine-tune and improve your financial strategy and investments. Finances are strong this month in spite of the changes. Speculations are favourable until the 23rd. Personal creativity enhances the bottom line as well. After that money comes the old-fashioned way – through work.

Universal horoscope for CANCER in December

Best Days Overall: 1st, 10th, 11th, 19th, 20th, 27th, 28th;
Most Stressful Days Overall: 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 17th, 18th, 23rd, 24th, 30th, 31st;

You are in a cusp situation (a borderline condition) this month, Cancer. The planetary power is shifting from the lower half of your Horoscope to the upper half. The shift will be complete by the 22nd. Also, on the 16th, Mars (your Career Planet) moves into your 10th House of Career (his own Sign and House). The message is clear: ambitions and career are becoming ever more important and need your attention. Let go – de-emphasize – family and emotional issues and push forward towards your outer goals. Mercury goes retrograde on the 17th, so try to do your Christmas shopping before then. Your judgement will be better. (I especially like the 5th and 6th for these kinds of things, as there will be a Grand Trine in Earth.) The planetary power is even more in the West than it was last month. Your 7th House of Love, Romance and Social Activities is very strong. This is one of your strongest social months this year. Like last month, this is a time for attaining your ends through charm, diplomacy and consensus, not through independence or self-will. With 90% of the planets forward, progress towards your goals should happen quickly. You are very active socially and in your career, so try to pace yourself and focus on essentials. Health is more delicate this month – especially after the 23rd. Don’t let financial stresses or worries (there’s no real reason for them) affect your health. Your financial life, like everything else in life, moves in cycles. Take the temporary ups and downs in your stride. Try to be more selective in your social life, too. You can’t attend every party or gathering, or go out with every prospect. Be picky. There are romantic opportunities galore this month. But the retrograde of your Love Planet shows a need for caution. Try to enjoy every opportunity for what it is without worrying too much about what the future may bring. Love is complicated by the fact that your beloved wants to be with you while you want to be out partying. Money comes from work most of this month, but a lucky speculation or windfall could happen around the 11th to 13th. There is some tension at work regarding pay. Perhaps you feel that your efforts are not being rewarded as they should. But stay calm;
after the 23rd, this issue will get resolved. Looks like you receive a sizeable bonus. After the 23rd, social connections and networking play an important role in finances. Your spouse or beloved supports your financial goals and provides you with opportunities. Jobseekers meet with good success after the 23rd.
