KnowCancers March ’23 Scope
Key Themes: Trust, passion, release, healing, co-creating with the universe
Cancer, March is going to bring you some powerful shifts – and they’re the good kind. Over the next four weeks, you’re going to experience closure, new approaches, plus the birth of a new cosmic cycle. There’ll be a lot moving, and this may give you a feeling of groundlessness. Remember that sometimes, that’s okay. You will occasionally move forward through life by having the rug swept out from under you. How dramatic that has to be depends on your ability to adapt and flow with what comes. A mantra for you to keep in mind for the month of March is: I focus on what I can control, and find peace with what I cannot.
The month begins with Mercury entering Pisces on March 2nd, for a few weeks. This will lead to your thoughts becoming a little more soulful and passionate. The mundane might become even less interesting than usual, and all of a sudden you’re being drawn into internet deep dives on all things esoteric and adventurous.
Allow any inspiration to come through here, because with the practical Virgo Full Moon vibes (March 7th), you’ll be able to get to work on bringing plans into reality. Activating your sector of mental processing, this moon also carries a strong theme of releasing and clearing. Virgos are notorious for being particular, and you can apply this discernment energy to your own life.
Also on March 7th, we have Saturn shifting from Aquarius, into Pisces. Saturn governs themes like structure, time and authority. This is the energy which tells us to “toughen up and get to work.” There can be a helpful truth in the last sentence, but as a Cancer, it’ll be easy to see where such ideas have been taken to unhealthy extremes in our modern culture.
Often, the “grind and hustle” mentality comes from a distrust in the universe’s ability to provide… which creates more of exactly that. Cancer, it’s not to say that you shouldn’t take action, but rather – that it can come from a more empowered state: the awareness that you can co-create the life of your dreams.
As Saturn moves into Pisces, you’ll notice that the way life (and others around you) operates, will take on a distinctly more spiritual flavor.
On March 12th, a powerful healing window arises with Jupiter conjoining the asteroid Chiron, in Aries. Chiron is known as the wounded healer, and tends to point us towards our deepest wounding. With the magnifying lens of Jupiter on it – your triggers, fears or frustrations may rise to the surface. If that’s the case, be sure to give yourself plenty of space, grace and love. From there, arises a unique opportunity to deeply heal.
We have a marathon of fire emerging from March 19th, where Mercury (planet of communication) moves into Aries. The next day, we begin Aries season, as well as the new astrological year! This is big. Think chapter-closing-new-year’s-day vibes. You might feel this as a wave of nostalgia, the desire to reflect, excitement for the future, or all of the above.
Laying all of your emotions out will be the perfect thing to do on March 21st, where we have the first New Moon of the astro year, in Aries. This powerful initiatory energy activates your sector of physical manifestation, finances and career. Plus, Mars (planet of action) moves into your sign on March 25th. If there were ever a time to fearlessly shoot your shot, this would be it!
Ruler: The Moon
Where You’ll Find Them: Walking down the beach, cooking soul food, snuggling in bed
What They Avoid: Confrontation, deadlines, and overly aggressive situations
Cancer, the fourth sign of the zodiac, is quite possibly the most sensitive — but you wouldn’t outwardly know it. Cancer’s symbol is The Crab, and this explains their tendency to hide in their shell whenever the outward world gets too tough to handle. As a Water sign ruled by the Moon, Cancer is deeply emotional, and easily absorbs the vibes in their environment. Cancer is full of compassion for the world, particularly the underprivileged, the needy, children, animals, and the oppressed. There is a nostalgic element to Cancer that can lead to them living in the past and having trouble letting go.
Professionally, Cancer is a great collaborator and team-player. However, sometimes they remain in the background for far too long, out of fear of stepping into the spotlight. Cancers make incredible artists, but they can be overly protective of their work rather than sharing their art with the world. If Cancer is able to overcome such shyness, their art and transparency can heal the world. Cancer’s nurturing spirit also makes them great therapists, teachers, interior designers, cooks, and spiritual healers. There’s something about Cancer that is full of wisdom, making them old souls. That’s why people may joke around and call them the grandparents of the zodiac, even in their youth.
Cancer loves to take care of those they love, so having a Cancer as a friend is a true blessing. What Cancer must learn, however, is to establish healthy boundaries and not let their generosity or kindness be taken advantage of. Sometimes Cancer gives away too much of their energy, and if it’s not reciprocated it can feel very painful. Instead of directly letting the person know about that pain, Cancer may resort to passive-aggressive behavior, and that only exacerbates the problem. Cancer therefore will benefit from being more honest and assertive in friendships and relationships.
As a lover, while Cancer may be very slow to trust and open up to you, they are definitely some of the biggest believers in love. Many Cancers dream of having a family and being married to their soulmate, and this can lead to them becoming deeply invested in the relationships they pursue, to the point of sometimes being clingy or possessive of their lover(s). This can sometimes scare their lover(s) away, but at other times it reassures their lover(s) of Cancer’s loyalty. Whatever the case may be, Cancer would benefit from directing all of that love and attention they offer others back to themselves first and foremost. Cancer’s greatest lesson is to put their own self first and cater to their own needs consistently. In doing so, they’re able to extend the purest type of love into the lives of those around them.
