Cancers Weekly Scope Mar 18 – 24, 2024

Happy New Astro Year Cancer! This week you’ll experience powerful and transformative energies. If you’ve been feeling lethargic lately, this will likely begin to lift, starting with the moon (in your sign) harmoniously trine to Neptune on Tuesday. Get ready for a significant cosmic event as the Sun shifts into Aries at 11:06 PM ET, marking the equinox and the beginning of Aries season. This energy encourages you to explore new horizons and set bold intentions. It’s a potent time to manifest your dreams, Cancer, so get as clear as possible on your desires. This means being honest with yourself. Thursday brings waves of motivation and intention as Venus conjoins Saturn in Pisces, prompting reflection on your relationships, commitments, and perhaps both in the same sentence. Focus on building solid foundations and deepening emotional connections. As the Moon enters Virgo on Friday, your attention will turn to practical matters. Balance is key here, to ensure that you don’t get lost or dissociative within the mundane. Mars in Pisces will be ready to guide your actions with intuition, if you choose to tune in and listen…

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.
