KnowCancers Wknd Scope January 28 – 29, 2023

This weekend’s Quarter Moon in Taurus encourages us to take a look at the new moon intentions we set a week ago and refine them. There could also be some initial challenges popping up, and we’re being asked to practice patience in the face of delays or mix-ups. Cancer, this wknd will have you reflecting on your friendships. You may have felt suspicious of people’s motives in your life due to Mars in Gemini activating your spirituality sector, but now that Uranus is direct in Taurus in your friendship sector you may get signs from the cosmos showing you that you don’t have to keep your guard up so much. People want to love and support you, Cancer… You just have to be willing to let them in.

KnowCancers December ’22 Scope

Key Themes: Faith in self and the universe, career, relationships

December is one of those months which will feel like a comforting hug from the universe. If you take your time, create spaciousness around you – and deeply connect with yourself… you’ll be able to find answers to so many of the themes that arose in 2022.

The month begins with Neptune going direct in its home sign (Pisces) on December 3rd. As highly empathic water sign, you’ll feel this shift deeply Cancer. Neptune and Pisces are all about collective energies. Remember how chaotic things felt in 2020? We’re all so much more attuned and connected to the world’s energies than we realize, and this can feel particularly true for water signs. This retrograde ending will feel like a veil has been lifted, revealing the love and beauty that was always there. Don’t be surprised if we see some positive political and global events around this time.

A strong theme of human connection and relationships is present with you for this month Cancer. Just a few days later (Dec 6th) Mercury enters the go-getter sign that is Capricorn. For you, this activates your sector of relationships and raises the theme of giving and receiving. Mercury is all about communication so at this time you’ll be prompted to share anything and everything that needs to be said. You can be notorious for bottling up your feeling Cancer, but your loved ones deserve to know, and you deserve to be supported.

Only the next day (Dec 7th), a Full Moon in Gemini illuminates your sector of spiritual connection. You’re ruled by the moon Cancer, and activating this area of your chart can create a powerful portal. This is one for either finding solitude, or being friends who share your same level of consciousness. Use this time ritualistically and with introspection. Full Moons are a time for gratitude and acknowledging the cycle that just passed. Notice all that’s grown in the last six months for you Cancer, give thanks, before consciously releasing anything that has now run its course.

December 20th sees Jupiter (the planet of abundance, luck, synchronicity and expansion) leaving Pisces, and entering the fiery sign of Aries. This energy can feel like a fire lit under you. Life might start moving a little faster in terms of synchronicity and opportunity. Something to remember here is that ultimately, you choose your pace – so it’s up to you how to work with this. Trust your intuition to guide you.

The next day (Dec 21st), Capricorn season begins. Capricorn is actually your opposite sign Cancer, so this time may evoke the sensation that you’re out of your comfort zone. It’s activating your sector of relationships (intimate and platonic), which will be the focus for the next four weeks.

Any sore spots relative to relationships may just arise around December 23rd when Chiron, the asteroid of wounded of our deepest wounding, ends its retrograde. Chiron direct tends to be a time of emotional release. Make sure you give yourself the space to process Cancer; tp really understand and integrate any lessons, in order to heal and prevent painful cycles from repeating.

(Tip: There’s a Chiron guide in the KTZ store, if you would like to learn more about your placement.)

On the same day, the Capricorn New Moon will evoke a sense of empowerment. You’ve made it through 2022 Cancer; grown, learned, and created memories along the way. Thank you for being here, and we’ll see you in the new year.

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.
