The beginning of the year sees this exercise unfolding, as a solar eclipse on January 5th brings a potent new beginning in an important new relationship. This will be an experience that changes you, especially since the lunar eclipse two week later on July 21st sees something of personal value being released (money, possessions, time, etc.) so that you can commit fully in partnership with others. This may feel rather dense at first, but the load will lighten, and you stand to benefit in the long run.
In fact, the spring months bring inspiration. Higher learning, travel, international pursuits and vocational training will give you something to look forward to! Many Cancers may embark on a trip abroad, while others begin enrollment in a higher education institution. You may experience a few delays around these endeavors throughout the month of March while Mercury is retrograde. Missing travel documents, publishing edits as well as enrollment changes could lead you to feel discouraged. Inspiration and momentum will be restored by April, so try not to lose faith.
The rest of spring sees you shifting your focus to networking, social engagements, and other group events. This will trigger a theme that began during the spring of last year, encouraging you to branch out and meet new people. Freedom to connect with others and build new contacts will generate some restlessness on your part. But you will be deliberate in your efforts, choosing carefully those people and associations with which you wish to align.
As we enter the summer, two eclipse bring big change! A solar eclipse in your sign on July 2nd begins a personal chapter beginning, while the lunar eclipse on July 21st sees a completion of activity on the relationship front. This will trigger events that unfolded at the beginning of the year; your involvement in a partnership may need to shift or end entirely so that you can focus on personal aims. Mid-July through August could see you going back and forth with uncertainty as you consider relationships that are of value to you. Clarity will be revealed by September.
The fall season, meanwhile, will be ripe with developments. Money matters, education and learning as well as home and family affairs dominate your time. This will keep you busy – a theme that is in effect throughout all of 2019. With busier days, be careful not to put too much on your plate and pay attention to health and wellness.
As we close out the year, fun and recreation will be a new focus; let’s face it, you deserve it Cancer! Activities involving children, new romance, as well as creative ventures will bring more joy and play. There may be a few glitches around these endeavors in November – misunderstandings with children, romantic setbacks, or delays around an artistic launch are possible. Try not to get too overwhelmed if things do not go as planned. All will be resolved by December.
A parting gift to 2019 will appear in the form of another solar eclipse the day after Christmas. This, coinciding with the transit of Jupiter through Capricorn, marks another new relationship beginning – one that will be smoother, healthier and leads to firmer commitments. An enhancement will be in effect with important partners. Greater connection is possible, as well as benefits through others.
Happy New Year, Cancer!
