KnowCancers February ’23 Scope

Key Themes: Intuition and spiritual connection, adventure and purpose, prioritizing yourself, laying the bricks of your dream’s foundations

Cancer, February has the potential to be a magical month One where you can reconfigure the more mundane aspects of your life to infuse each day with beauty and a sense of real wealth.

This kicks off with a Full Moon in your neighboring sign, Leo. Because you’re close to the fiery lion of the zodiac (particularly if your Cancer placement is in the early degrees), you have a natural resonance with this sign. Both archetypes are highly emotive, passionate and move through life by feeling. Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and Leo ruled by the Sun, which means this Full Moon offers both an opposite symmetry and natural sense of balance. You’ll feel that, and it may arise as warm feelings of optimism, empowerment or simply a heightened sense of clarity in the days surrounding. Because it activates your sector of spiritual connection, you may also notice heightened intuitive perception around this time.

Mercury is moving into Aquarius on Feb 11th, and with so much evolution in the air (Saturn is in its last chapter within the sign of Aquarius), shifting seasons and swirling tides mean: you are growing, and you feel different. This whole month will feel different.

On Feb 16th a natural deepening of experience opens up with asteroid Pallas Athena entering your sign Cancer. The asteroids tend to be a little less known in popular astrology, but this does not accurately reflect anything about their importance. Pallas’ energy reflects our creative and intuitive intelligence, and can often point to where our inner knowing is sacrificed at the expense of a logic and ‘progress’ driven world. In your own sign you may experience this as a powerful desire to come back to your inner truth, and to live from that place. This could mean anything from adopting a morning gratitude/stillness practice, picking up your paints, or simply being more honest about your feelings with coworkers. Either way, at this time you are invited into a chapter of being more of who you already are.

Adventure, life purpose and meaning will have their volume turned up on Feb 20th, as Aries shifts into the planet of love and beauty: Venus. For you this activates your sector of journeying. Think: hero’s quest energy, and you’re the protagonist. It’ll be a good time for self-reflection, from a broader perspective. If your story was being told, what do you love about it? What are you ready to change? What chapters will come next?

These visions may just come true because on the same day, we have a dreamy Pisces New Moon. Ruled by the moon, your connection to its cycles runs deep Cancer. Use this new (and closing) lunar chapter to release all that burdens and blocks you unnecessarily. You’re ready for even more.

About Cancer

Element: Water

Mode: Cardinal

Ruler: The Moon

Where Youll 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 wouldnt outwardly know it. Cancers 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. Cancers nurturing spirit also makes them great therapists, teachers, interior designers, cooks, and spiritual healers. Theres something about Cancer that is full of wisdom, making them old souls. Thats 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 its 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 Cancers 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. Cancers greatest lesson is to put their own self first and cater to their own needs consistently. In doing so, theyre able to extend the purest type of love into the lives of those around them.
