    Cancer the Crab in 2005
    Shaping and Refining — then Release!

    Good news for the Crabs! Saturn, measurer of effort, gets off your case this year! From July 16th, he moves into the sign of Leo and your solar second house. Thus, after the midyear, liberation comes. Till then, keep wearing his mantle of responsibility and weaving his magic.

    As the year begins, keep your eyes on the road ahead, shaping and refining what you've been working on. Responsibility, serious effort and dealings with authoritative bodies or people continue, as do new partnership duties. There will be isolation or a sense of carrying burdens alone as a heavy load creates a separation from familiar people or points of reference. Your new status or your new endeavours will ask much. Nonetheless, sustained effort sets new directions and you can complete outstanding matters or work in progress with the assurance that a fruitful time is coming. Remember too that Uranus is moving through Pisces and your solar ninth house, urging you to expand your horizons, dream your dreams and discover what it is you truly believe in.

    And fruitfulness comes with in a double dose. Jupiter, Lord of Heaven, moves through Libra and your solar fourth house as the year begins, keeping your focus on matters of home, family and emotional life. However, on October 26th, the jovial one moves to Scorpio and your solar fifth house, opening the doors to a different kind of life. This ushers in a time of creative endeavours, speculative ventures, pleasure and perhaps romance. Whatever comes will be deep and meaningful. Intensity will be the watchword.

    When Saturn moves to Leo and your solar second house on July 16th, the means by which you handle money and personal spending will need to change. Opt for the 'lean and mean' approach. Work to save money by sticking to the basics. Target the purchase of what you want by cutting out what's not important. No frivolous spending! If you wish to buy something of value, work towards the purchase by recognizing how many working hours will go into the purchase price and make sure that what you buy reflects the value of the effort put in. Don't get sucked into a grandiose purchase for its own sake. In the two years that follow, build resources and spending power through hard work and good money management. Some of you may have to learn about 'doing without' during this time. Some of you may put personal resources or money at risk in order to gain a greater prize.

    2005 Cancer Love and Money Love and Money  Go to Top

    With Venus the goddess in Sagittarius, conjoining Pluto and Mercury, the romantic side of life will be bound up with work and daily routines. For the singles, there may be a work-related liaison. This may simply be a natural progression or it may be that something which begins in secret soon comes into the open. One way or another, a new relationship may be born.

    It may also be that some of you will simply be married to the job for work and working conditions will be a dominant theme. The same may apply to health concerns. For some, new patterns or new practices with health will become a dominant influence, one that may set aside the possibility of new relationships or keep current relationships in standard operating mode. For those in a partnership, it may be that you will work on something together, a business venture perhaps, and that working conditions will be the determining influence in the routine of your lives. It may also be that the routine of work determines what you will do and how you will do it together. For some, changed working conditions will alter the pattern of your relationship. For others, the need to relate in a new or different manner will bring about work-related change.

    This will be a year in which relationships with co-workers, staff and contractors will be vitally important. There may be significant negotiations or bargaining, a lot of discussion and some beginnings and endings. Once again, health issues may have great influence on working conditions. Changes in the global picture may also affect local operations.

    When Jupiter moves into Scorpio and your solar fifth house on October 26th, the mood changes completely and there will be a romantic surge. For many Crabs, single or in a relationship, love life gains a new lease of life at this time. Singles may play the field or find passionate romance. Those in partnerships will hit an expansive mode and leisure or lifestyle activities will send the erotic temperature soaring. Watch out for excess though, especially where lifestyle spending or speculative ventures are concerned. Remember that Saturn in Leo wants accountability with spending.

    2005 Cancer Home and Family Home and Family  Go to Top

    The Crab's domestic and emotional life is marked for change or expansion with Jupiter in Libra. There may be home improvement or a relocation, one that may take you to another region or another country. Some will find housing conditions improve or change dramatically. Others will find that family or emotional matters may be linked with overseas connections or travel. People of status, such as foreign visitors, academics or professional people may become part of domestic life for a time. Artistic or legal people may visit your home. The feeling at home may be one of a high emotional state and there will be 'larger than life' goings on in the domicile. Whatever the nature of the events, discuss things with your family and loved ones and work to see their point of view. Good fortune comes from proper attention to domestic matters but at times the atmosphere will be charged and there could be strong words and high emotion.

    With the Lunar South Node in the sign of Libra and travelling through your solar fourth house, there will be figures from the past returning to the shelter of the domicile. These will be people that have been part of family or emotional life before. To go with these arrivals, there may also be departures as the family constellation changes in some way. Watch the Lunar Eclipse on October 3rd for action of this nature.

    For some, Jupiter's move into the sign of Scorpio and your solar fifth house on October 26th presages the arrival of children while for others there will be a change in lifestyle or the beginning of new creative or recreational endeavours.

    2005 Cancer Work and Health Work and Health  Go to Top

    Pluto, the underworld lord, is in your solar sixth house of work and health as the year begins, joined by warrior Mars, Mercury the messenger and Venus the goddess. Saturn is in your sign until July 16th so health will still be a concern. Take care of yourself and keep a watchful eye on matters that have troubled you in the past. Seek new solutions. Jupiter favours new self-understanding and emotional support if this occurs. Go the alternative and inner road of healing. The extremities or the nervous system may suffer. Even though Jupiter favours you, be careful nonetheless of work-related accidents or health conditions.

    As the year begins, warrior Mars in your solar sixth house clashes with Uranus in your solar ninth house. The bigger picture in the world may influence your working life or the lives of co-workers. This may come about through events of global moment. Don't rush into things or rush to get them into operation. Hasty work or strategies will come apart with speed. Get a good grasp on the big picture before you invest effort for this may change with speed. Watch relations with male co-workers or staff. They may be difficult or driven by their own ideas. You may come to a parting of the ways. With Venus in your solar sixth house, favoured by Jupiter, females or cooperative workers will provide solutions to such problems and work negotiations are marked for success for the most part. Nonetheless, Mars can be a wild card or an erratic force. Take care with work-related travel, especially if overseas destinations or links are involved. Be cautious about agreeing to work with in-laws. Check the legal status of overseas connections and employees with regard to all contractual matters.

    2005 Cancer Career Matters Career Matters  Go to Top

    With the Lunar North Node in Aries and your solar tenth house, this is a time for you to really make a splash or make your mark professionally and in your personal life. Open new roads that you know to be of worth. Take the risk or the road less travelled and back up your choices with courage, hard work and vigorous determination. There is opportunity here to bring something to fruition that you've been working on for some time. There will be obstacles. There may be difficulties with bureaucracy or authority over what can and can't be done. Don't accept their ruling or say so until you've tried every avenue. You may have to deal with staff or workers who want to take the game over or play by their rules. You will thus have to exert your authority, with compassion but with firmness too. Some of you may strike out in a new direction and will have to proceed without support or the encouragement of others. If everyone's telling you not to do something, it may be worth the doing if you have the strength and will to carry it through. Harmony and support for your endeavours come from the Heavens as Uranus and Jupiter (from October 26th) flow with the waters of your native sign.

    2005 Cancer Mercury the MessengerMercury 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.

    Mercury's first retrograde cycle comes in Aries and your solar tenth house, beginning on March 20th. There may be communication difficulties or misunderstandings with regard to professional matters or dealings with those in authority. You may need to review your situation or strategies. You may be contemplating a career change or shift. You may have to deal with a difficult person. There may be problems with anger or frustration in others. Work through whatever's wrong by encouraging all concerned to see the other side of the situation. Take a leaf out of that book yourself. This cycle comes to an end on April 12th.

    The messenger's second reverse motion cycle starts on July 23rd in Leo and your solar second house. Finances or personal spending may need a review. There may be some unexpected costs that you incur. Your desire for things may exceed your budget. You may have to deal with difficult officials over money. There may be confusion over transactions or payments. This cycle comes to an end on August 16th.

    Mercury's final retrograde cycle starts on November 14th in Sagittarius and your solar sixth house of work, health and daily routines. There may be problems with a co-worker or unscheduled changes or interruptions to work routines. Communication problems could trouble your working situation. There may be minor setbacks with health. There may be a problem with work-related travel or with appliances or devices used for work. Service what you use in advance. This cycle comes to an end on November 24th.

    2005 Cancer Lady Moon Lady Moon  Go to Top

    Your New Moon comes on July 6th, bringing tension with giant Jupiter. This could be an emotional time that may reveal some issues that need to be discussed with regard to both money and domestic dealings. You may have to let a few waves of emotion pass and then begin to work things out in a calm environment. This could presage a change with your domestic or emotional situation.

    There is no Full Moon in your sign during this calendar year.

    2005 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.

    There is a Solar Eclipse on April 8th at the New Moon in Aries and your solar tenth house. There may be a change or ending with career matters or dealings with authority. Your responsibilities may alter as something passes from the domain of your concern. A figure who has been important in your life may leave the scene. For some, this could be the beginning of a career change. For others, it will just be a hitch in proceedings.

    The Full Moon in the sign of Scorpio and your solar fifth house brings a Lunar Eclipse on April 24th. There may be changes concerning children. Lifestyle matters or recreational activities may be subject to change or alteration. You may have to suspend an activity for a time. There may be delays with creative projects. This is not a good time to be 'going for it' with investment money in speculative ventures. Be restrained instead.

    There is a Solar Eclipse at the New Moon in Libra and your solar fourth house, coming on October 3rd. The Lunar Nodes are involved in this configuration. There may be change or an ending, generating a cyclical change with regard to emotional or domestic life. There may be a change in the family constellation. Someone may arrive or depart, thus altering the pattern of things. There may also be changes with the home itself. This could mark a turning point with regard to physical change in the state or location of your domicile. With the eclipse on the South Node, there will be a sense of karma or destiny involved. There may be a powerful sense of something that must be done or completed.

    The final eclipse is of the Moon, coming at the Full Moon in Aries and your solar tenth house on October 17th. This is an emotional time as the Moon opposes Sun and Jupiter. There may be an ending or a change with professional matters or responsibilities. There may be changes in personal life generating changes with career. There may be changes in the family or family circumstances, especially involving women or younger members of the family. You may be leaving an old life behind.

    2005 Cancer Special Event Special Events  Go to Top

    Warrior Mars turns retrograde in Taurus and your solar eleventh house on October 1st. There will be changes in the constellation of your friends. Someone may need your help or you may need theirs. There may be a clash of values with friends. There could be a change with regard to the constellation of your friends. Someone may go or take another path unexpectedly. When Mars travels backwards, things seem to take longer to do and much frustration can accumulate around getting them done. There can be delays or interruptions with what you're trying to achieve. There may be frustration in dealings with people who won't work in tandem with you, especially males or ill-tempered people. Some may have to give attention to an old concern while others may struggle to get a new one up and running. There may be difficulty with money or resources at the root of what's wrong. Work patiently towards success. Don't let frustration make you impatient or hasty.

    Watch in particular the first fortnight of November, especially if you have to spend more money than you thought in order to achieve a desired result. Keep a check on how much as it will be easy to overspend. You may simply be tired or fatigued at this time with regard to the pursuit of your goals. Be careful of deception from others over money. This is not a good time for secret sexual liaisons with friends. Whatever happens is unlikely to remain a secret for long. This cycle ends on December 10th. Whatever ground you've lost in the period will have to be made up by hard work till the end of the year. Watch for bad advice during that period and don't be swayed by others. Be considered in your judgement.

    Chiron the wounded healer moves to Aquarius and your solar eighth house this year. He will be there from February 21st and then again after December 6th. New practices and strategies will be required with money and its handling, especially where joint finance and credit arrangements are involved. Some of you may have to face issues about intimacy and sexuality. You may need to delve deep to find what you need to fulfill you. Some of you single Crabs may come into a deeply moving sexual relationship while others will enter a new phase of your relationship with your partner. The occult or the practice of psychology may begin to interest some of you.

    On Christmas Eve, Venus the goddess turns retrograde in Aquarius and your solar eighth house. You may revive or renew a romantic connection from the past. Financial matters may hit a glitch or past financial dealings may come back to haunt you. You may need to review your finances. Some may have to handle family or business money where in the past you've avoided it while others may have to let go of the reins and let others do the work. Step back from the situation. Get a better perspective. Some may experience a hiatus or a separation with a primary relationship. Just bear with any delay or separation. It will only be temporary. If you're tempted to secret liaisons or doings at this time, think again. You may get more than you bargained for or a lot less. Some of you may find deep and abiding healing through sexual intimacy at this time.
