    2004 Cancer Spiritual Quest Serious and Weighty Matters...

    Saturn, measurer of effort, still leads the cosmic dance for the Crab this year, a journey through your sign that won't conclude till 2005. Responsibility, the serious endeavour and dealings with authoritative bodies or people will be the milestones. Some of you may take on new partnership duties. Others may have to carry burdens alone because partners or associates may step back or choose a new direction. Some of you may feel isolated because of work or conditions and it may be hard to delegate or get others to pull their weight. Some may take a heavier than usual load while for others there may be a separation from familiar people or points of reference as you 'go it alone'.

    There may be a rise in status for some, one that will ask more than you've had to give before. As sobering as this sounds, there are rewards for the sustained efforts you make in either doing what's required or in setting new directions. Though there is an emphasis on completing old or outstanding matters, this period nonetheless marks the start of an era. Step into it, undeterred by what must be done and you can set patterns and structures that will carry you into the future. Saturn moves forward from March 8th until November 9th so you can advance and grow with strength during this period.

    Giant Jupiter, lord of fortune, throws his weight behind you from January to the last week of September as he traverses Virgo and your solar third house. You'll have a little luck in your dealings and the support of allies. There will be important communications and negotiations. You can advance yourself through a practical and discerning approach. Useful ideas and methods will be there at need and you can have the assistance or advice of experienced professionals as you navigate the road ahead. Travel may bring benefit in work or gain through new associations. This can be a fortunate period for you and you can flourish through new ideas and connections. This may also be a good time to learn new skills or advance your education.

    2004 Cancer Love and Money Love and Money  Go to Top

    Venus the goddess dances with mystic Neptune in Aquarius and your solar eighth house as the year begins. This could be a passionate year for the Crab but it may be hard to tell which way the passions will leap. Into the fires, yes! But will you be uplifted or just burned? Only time will tell. For the single Cancer, there may be romance or a dose of outright lust. Some may go chasing the rainbows of romance only to find there's nothing of substance to hold onto. Others may be drawn into a new and enticing partnership that gives both warmth and depth. Feelings will run high but discernment may be flawed. It could be hard to tell if what you seek is real or just a rarefied ideal. You may have to take the plunge anyway, just to find out. Don't mix the pleasures of love and money this year. Some of you may feel the urge to spend on something or someone new, but it may be better to wait and see how sound your judgement has been before you risk too much. Someone new or unusual may be the hallmark of the good things that await you. A partner cut in a different mold from anyone you're used to may bring joy to your life.

    For those Crabs with partners, joint ventures may become a consuming interest. You may break new ground or set off in a new direction together. If, on the other hand, you've been heavily involved in the past then it may be you'll march to a different drummer for awhile. Refresh and reinvigorate your relationship with loved ones. Start out on a different tack and rediscover the passions of old. Some of you may go through a complete change of ideals or interests, one that will bring you closer together. Others may find new paths that call you to independent action as you discover something new about yourself outside the mantle of a relationship. Shared ideas, interests or friends may be the glue that strengthens that bonds between those of you already committed. New or unusual friends or people may enter the arena of your relationship.

    Money may become a consuming passion this year and there's a good chance of making some if you're prepared to follow a new course with determination, overcoming any obstacles you meet along the way. Plan for the long term but act in the moment. Don't take risks without some security to back you up. Deception and overextending yourself are risks this year, so if an offer or opportunity seems too good to be true, it probably is. Nonetheless, you can gain greatly by throwing in your lot with others and sharing what you have to make a bigger impact. Aries and Scorpio individuals may feature in your plans and doings. Gatherings, social events and intense involvements will be part of your year. This is a good period to mix business with pleasure in that you can make strong advances through socializing and social contacts. Some may find new romance through professional encounters.

    2004 Cancer Home and Family Home and Family  Go to Top

    The Crab's domestic and emotional life may become a strong focus from September 25th when giant Jupiter moves into Libra and your solar fourth house. There may be home improvements for some. For others, there may be a relocation, one that could take you overseas. Some will find that housing conditions improve or change dramatically. Family or emotional matters may be linked with overseas connections or travel. Some may find that people of status, such as foreign visitors, academics or professional people become part of domestic life for a time. Artistic or legal people may visit your home.

    There may be strong feelings or a high emotional state around the home. For some, there will simply be a 'larger than life' feel to the goings on in the domicile. Whatever the nature of the events, make sure you discuss things with your family or loved ones and work to see the other point of view. Good fortune may come from proper attention to domestic matters but at times the atmosphere will be charged and there could be strong words and high emotion.

    2004 Cancer Work and health Work and Health  Go to Top

    Pluto, the underworld lord, continues his arduous journey through Sagittarius and your solar sixth house of work and health. This year he's joined by Mercury the messenger. As Saturn travels through your sign, health is a concern. Do all you need to nurture and care for yourself. There may be a return of health matters that have troubled you previously. Seek new solutions if this occurs. The extremities or the nervous system may suffer. Be careful of work-related accidents. Communications with co-workers may be troublesome from time to time throughout the year. Work to improve daily routines for both safety and efficiency.

    This is a time to work towards the transformation of your working conditions. You may need to put in the extra effort to shift yourself up the ladder or into a new line of work. Changes in communication or in avenues of expression will greatly assist your working situation, especially for the first nine months of the year. Apply new methods. Learn new skills. Be careful of any work-related litigation. Such occurrences will not favour you this year so preventive action will be the best. You may need to take legal advice during the course of your working life.

    2004 Cancer Career Matters Career Matters  Go to Top

    Saturn, Mars the warrior and the Sun begin the year in a testing formation that affects you personally as well as your professional status and your dealings with partners. There may be struggles or conflicts from time to time as work pressures or interests clash with partnership pressures or needs. The best solution will be to deal with the tension as best you can by trying to serve both interests as well as you can. You may have to compromise one for the other at times, but just keep going. Work may cause some of you to spend time apart from your partner. There may be tensions or even clashes with male authority figures. New ventures may take more time getting underway than you would like. Treat each obstacle as a learning curve. Accept delays but negotiate solutions. Be persistent. Plan carefully but strike boldly when seeking advancement. Don't be hasty or impatient, but act immediately when the time is right.

    2004 Cancer Mercury the Messenger Mercury the Messenger  Go to Top

    Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times a year for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds a time of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and communications. The breakdowns that occur are a function of neglect, inattention, simple misunderstandings or component failure. They will often bring to the fore the very contingency we should have planned for and didn't. When the retrograde phase occurs, watch out for such possibilities as well as putting off major decision-making or the signing of crucial documents and agreements. We tend to miss things while Mercury is in reverse motion and then have to come back and do them again. A process of review in the retrograde phase can efficiently show where problems might lie and help us with damage control or the mending of things. Double check arrangements at these times! What you think you've said and what others have understood will often prove to be two different things.

    As the year begins, the busy little messenger is retrograde in Sagittarius and your solar sixth house. There may be minor health problems. Be careful of work-related accidents. Co-workers may be unreliable or there may be unavoidable interruptions to your working routines. Be flexible. Make sure you service appliances or vehicles used for work. This cycle comes to an end on January 7th.

    Mercury's second retrograde phase comes in Taurus and your solar eleventh house, beginning on April 7th. There may be misunderstandings with friends or associates. Cruise around them and come up with a fresh approach. You may go through a period of revision with regard to your hopes and wishes. You may need to freshen up your ideas and someone with an unusual perspective may be of assistance. Expand the register of your possibilities. A friend may come to you for help. This period comes to an end on May 1st.

    August 11th sees Mercury the messenger move backwards again, this time in Virgo and your solar third house. Communications and travel may be in for a little mayhem. If you think on your feet, you can solve any problem. Stay flexible. Ask questions just to make sure of things and confirm arrangements. Short distance travel could be problematic so service the car and check timetables. Leave early rather than having the unforeseen make you late. Take in the ideas of others. You may be missing something otherwise. There may be unexpected communications from siblings. This period comes to an end on September 3rd.

    Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius and your solar sixth house from December 1st until December 21st. Work and health matters come to the fore again. Take preventative action with healthcare. Work routines may be disrupted and co-workers may not be cooperative or able to cooperate. Service appliances and vehicles used for work. Be careful with work-related travel. See if you can get a better balance with regard to work and rest.

    2004 Cancer Lady Moon Lady Moon  Go to Top

    Two Full Moons come in your sign this year. The first is on January 7th, opening up matters of partnership for discussion and bringing tension with warrior Mars in Aries and your solar tenth house. Something may come to light with your nearest and dearest, bringing a testing emotional climate. There may be pressures brought about by the emotional state of partners or associates and the obligations of work or responsibility. There may be a clash with authority. Haste or impatience could unsettle you. If there is a clash of any kind, patiently consider what you can and can't do and accept the limitations imposed by time and circumstance.

    Your New Moon comes on July 17th, bringing tension with Chiron in Capricorn and your solar seventh house. A partner's health may be troublesome. There may be old wounds with partners or close associates that need to be dealt with. Try a new approach or strategy for solving problems. Talk matters over with someone skilled or qualified. Embark on a journey that shows you something about yourself that you can see only through the eyes of others.

    Your second Full Moon comes on December 26th. There may be revelations about partners and close associates or there may be eruptions of feeling from that quarter. There may be intense interactions with a partner or tensions that bring strong feelings to light. There is an emphasis on contacts from overseas and there may be news from that quarter. Such things may have a sudden or unexpected character. Matters related to in-laws may be up for consideration or debate. Words and ideas charge the atmosphere. Problems can be solved with tangential thinking or an inventive approach. Someone else's health may influence your situation.

    2004 Cancer Eclipses Eclipses  Go to Top

    Eclipses of both the Sun and the Moon often indicate the end of a cycle or a significant change in the direction or pattern of the affairs governed by the house in which the eclipse falls. Eclipses of the Sun may affect work, direction and relations with people in authority. Eclipses of the Moon may affect matters of home, family and emotions as well as relations with women and children. Both may affect your health.

    A Solar Eclipse comes with the New Moon in Aries and your solar tenth house on April 19th. You may have to start again with a professional endeavour or a position you have held. An end may come to an association with a boss or someone in authority. A cycle of responsibility you've had may come to a conclusion. A woman of importance or standing may pass from your life.

    The Full Moon comes in Scorpio on May 4th, bringing a Lunar Eclipse to your solar fifth house. A romantic cycle or situation may end. A leisure pastime or recreational activity may be interrupted. There may be problems or changes with children that require a shift in the way you do things with them. Creative projects could be suspended or may go through a change. As Sun and Moon square mystic Neptune at this time, there may be problems with finances or relationships that need adjustment. There may need to be changes with your spending or your dealings with those close to you.

    October 14th brings a Solar Eclipse at the New Moon in Libra. Matters of career or professional status may come to an unexpected hitch or change. A cycle of dealings with authority or taking authority may come to an end. A new responsibility may fall to you by default as someone leaves or makes an end to their situation. There could be a shift or even a change in career direction for some Crabs.

    The Full Moon comes on October 28th in the sign of Taurus and your solar eleventh house, bringing a Lunar Eclipse. There could be an eruption of trouble amongst or with women friends or associates. A friend or associate may pass from your circle. There may be a blockage or an ending with regard to your hopes and dreams. You may have to start again or redirect with something you've aspired to achieve. Resources may prove to be the problem in this area. Evaluate what's happened and make changes.

    2004 Cancer Special Event Special Events  Go to Top

    Venus the goddess turns retrograde in Gemini and your solar twelfth house on May 18th. This may mark a period of withdrawal for the Crab. You may need to look after your health or the health of someone close to you. You may immerse yourself in creative projects or spiritual activities or you may develop a project in secret for a time. You may simply step back from life to get a new perspective. Solitude may serve a need for deeper considerations. Issues of love or money that have troubled you in the past may flare up again, requiring further attention. There could be an unexpected reversal or change with finances or love life. Ride out the waves without being too concerned. Someone from the past may turn up unexpectedly. Be careful you don't engage in any secret or questionable involvements at this time. They may come back to haunt you if you do. Get the most that you can from your inner life. You may have the opportunity to resolve a long outstanding matter. This period comes to an end on June 30th.
