Diana's Monthly Cancer Forecast for March 2014
Overall this is the time to spread your wings and launch into new projects, thinking bigger as you consider the options. In March you are gathering information and outlining a game plan for the future. Taking speculative interests and creative ventures more seriously you will have to be patient as you wait for things to bear fruit.
You may be feeling sensitive or sentimental but you need to be dynamic and decisive regarding family members, the home base or property matters. From the end of the month you should show your authority and move forwards with goals.
The New Moon on the 1st in Pisces mixes well with Jupiter and Pluto who are at odds with each other this month, so for you Cancer, despite the general tendency to take things too personally, or hang on too tightly, if you were to scrutinize your own reactions or expectations and shift into the bigger, more adventurous picture, then you’ll probably end up gaining more, but in the process you will have to let go of some expectation or agreement in order to preserve something else more valuable to you.
This would be the right moment to become more informed as you explore a wider range of options outside of your normal environment.
Until the 21st, the Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area which tends to raise the spirits as you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Some of you may have itchy feet, and with the vibrations increasing opportunities to escape the daily grind this is a good time to get out and about more and try new things. Travel or educational pursuits could be emphasized and you should keep your eye on the distant horizon.
Plotting And Planning
Until the 18th, communications tend to become more strategic, involved, or confidential. Your thinking could focus on the financial angle or revolve around a space, a venue, possessions or property belonging to or shared with another. There may be more discussion related to an agreement or contract or on behalf of another, and your mind will be more introspective and you ponder things.
From the 18th, your mind may be more focused on those from a distance, travel, or another unfamiliar environment. You’ll tend to be thinking bigger and more aware of fresh potential, or a distant horizon. This could be a good time to refresh your mental palette and think in bright new colours. A plan may be forming in your mind. There may be a breath of wind from further afield or exchanges with a teacher, guide or those with specialist knowledge. Mercury enjoys this communicative sector which also emphasizes higher learning, publications and the legal side of things too. Another way this transit might work is you take the opportunity to beat the drum about something, get the word out, be the guide or the guided, the informer or the informed.
Mercury lines up with Neptune from the 20th. Everyday thinking could get fuzzy or there are mixed messages and it’s difficult to get clarity on things. Deception may be a factor too so don’t kid yourself into a worried or over-optimistic state. This can also be the result of outside factors which either sedate or confuse. A great time for deeper insight or more imaginative communications.
Image And Reputation
From the 21st, you will probably be taking your targets or overall direction more seriously or become more aware of the rules imposed by authority figures, bureaucracy and anyone you wish to impress favourably. The overall idea is to project a good image and be consistent and responsible as you go forwards. Reputation or how you are packaging something may be emphasized.
In the last two days of the month the New Moon in Aries lines up with Uranus/Pluto/Jupiter. You may feel the need to bust out of whatever has been holding you back. There is a strong focus on your standing in the eyes of others. Be visible, step up to the plate, push forwards with integrity and dignity.
Venus completes her long transit of Capricorn your opposite sign, on March 6th. Venus is strong in her favourite place and affairs of the heart are favoured. You and someone could be feeling a closer rapprochement, no matter whether it’s a personal or professional association. A special someone could come into your life but all relationships, personal, or professional tend to flow more easily. Whatever kind of a relationship it is, friends, family or romantic, you should value their presence, financial contribution or loving attention more. Working one to one or in a team could bring useful resources, financial or otherwise your way – both horses pulling in the same direction.
Pluto, also in this sector for many years will sometimes through sturm und drang, help you decide what kind of personal or professional relationships are most worthwhile. Wherever Pluto goes in the chart, there’s a feeling of letting go before a rebirth can occur. This strong drive growing within you pushes you forward with significant relationships and there could be intense interchanges. With the planet of death/rebirth affecting you it could mean some of you are compelled to make a major change or have it thrust upon you by others. This could work to your advantage in the long run as it shakes things up and clears the decks. Finding a fresh direction or another option means steering a new course and for a while it may take guts and tenacity but Pluto will give you the deep conviction to see it through all the way. Pluto, planet of manipulation and control, means that you may encounter these factors in your interactions with others at close quarters but you should stick up for yourself and your renewed value structure will, after a period of disorientation, regenerate and strengthen.
Cancerians born in the beginning of the second decanate or with 12-14 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
Creating A New Sense Of Self
Saturn, now in a very positive angle to your sun sign, means ultimate success if you take the long view and pay more focused, nurturing attention to creative or investment projects, also regarding the affairs of children/young ones, or a romantic relationship then you are on the road to building a solid and robust structure which stands the test of time. Equally, any leisure or creative activities may be harder to organize or you will have less time for them but a more disciplined, patient approach will help them blossom. It may also mean that, because of one (or more) of these examples you feel held back or limited in your aims so you will need to proceed with care and perseverance.
Cancerians born in the beginning of the last decanate or with 21-23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
From the 6th, Venus could manifest as an influence which might help you out materially or emotionally in major or minor ways. So, a good time to acquire and use resources to benefit your material interests with others. Negotiations could go your way and physical conditions could improve. This is a place of emotional depth and you can really move others or be persuasive with Venus here, conversely, another could touch your feelings – great for the romantics and artists among you. Some of you feel like shifting into more commitment in a material or emotional sense – depending on your natal chart and on your own ability to create what you want. A relationship could revolve around a shared space, joint possessions or property and things can be ironed out to mutual advantage. On another level, Venus here means feelings will be nearer the surface and someone may find it easier to touch your heart and it can mean things become more sexual, intimate or ’involved’. You can evolve and regenerate through relationships during this time frame.
In general, It’s is a good time to have a heart to heart talk or seek or give confidential advice as a trouble shared is a trouble halved. This harmonizing influence may bring about a shift or a new chapter in a relationship, contract or previous set-up.
But this transit could mean goodies are in the pipeline and you benefit from the finances or resources or emotional support of a second or third party.
Until July, Mars is in a major transit at the root of your chart which means you could be busier than usual in and around HQ, or with family members. Physical effort may be needed in or because of a living space inside or outside, or be related to community locally or over the wires. Points on the map, a family member, or a property inside or outside, will need a decisive or assertive approach which may also make demands on your stamina and may be the cause of conflict. Mars in this area could mean a lot more coming and going within a locality or hustle and bustle around you. As always with Mars, there could be moments of tension which surface now and again and affect your mood and you may have to use pent up energies in a more positive way. Skeletons may start rattling in the closet and you have to square up to old emotional patterns or tie up loose ends from the past or with parents. On the other hand you may be putting your energies into something which connects you with tradition, the family line, Mother Nature or the planet as a whole. For some, parents or parenting are emphasized – especially the father.
Cancerians born in the last decanate or with 21-28 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this month.
Painting With A Broad Brush
With Jupiter in your sign until July it’s time for a real growth spurt in your life as things could be taking off in new directions. You will discover much through those from different backgrounds or belief systems, or ways of doing things, so, quite a learning curve! More travel, foreign cultures or higher education could be part of the picture. Just try to avoid trusting to luck or overlooking important details and expanding too far too fast. This is your opportunity to think bigger and reach for the golden ring on the merry-go-round of life.
Cancerians born in the beginning of the second decanate or with 10-12 degrees Cancer rising will feel this energy the most this month.
(The current Saturn/Neptune/ Jupiter positions will help you to be creative with ideals and aspirations close to your heart until next July. Over this long transit you will learn to think bigger and be more enterprising).

Diana's 2014 Cancer Forecast:
MERCURY RETROGRADES 3 times for approx 3 weeks each in 2014:
First retrograde on 6th-28th February-Aquarius – Pisces.
Second retrograde on 7th June – 1st July – Gemini – Cancer.
Third retrograde on 4th-25th October Libra – Scorpio.
THERE WILL BE 2 SOLAR ECLIPSES IN 2014:

Make a new beginning through group interests, or friendships.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on October 23rd in your Solar 5th house
Make changes through interests or people who make you feel special, step into romance or support activities of children youngsters or animals.
Astrologically speaking, as one of the Cardinal signs, there’s a lot of planetary action continuing to affect your Sun sign in 2014 with Uranus, Pluto, Jupiter, Mars all making a strong impact, but Jupiter’s current position is definitely a turn for the better.
The Cardinal signs are the movers and shakers of the zodiac and the way you handle what the universe is dishing up between 2011 and 2016 is generational and will, to an extent, set the precedent for what follows further down the line…
THE CARDINAL GRAND CROSS in April/May and Nov/Dec when Uranus/Pluto are closest will manifest important events which trigger yet another moment of choice as the mass consciousness shifts from the Piscean to the Aquarian Age.
Cancer, with Uranus in a hard angle to your Sun sign til 2019 and Pluto in your opposite sign for more years than that, you will be getting used to the sometimes jittery feeling that change is in the air and that your standing in the wider world is going through a cycle of adjustment and certain close relationships will never be the same again. Even though it may not feel like it at the time, it’s your sub-conscious choosing what is taking shape.
Both Venus and Mars will be in long transits beginning late in the year………
Venus will be in Capricorn from November 5th 2013 – March 6th 2014 which is potentially good news for you Cancer as the abundance of Venus will be gracing your area of close relationships, personal or professional, easing things between you and another, boosting your love-life or helping you to do better materially through key relationships.
Mars entered Libra, at the root of your chart on December 8th 2013 to stay until July 25th 2014. An extraordinarily long transit dynamically activating your home area and maybe family matters too. Things are going to be very active right in your own back yard, which could mean relocation, home-improvements, more comings and goings or more physical demands made upon you related to a base of operations wherever that may be. Family, tribal or community relationships locally or over the wires look dynamic and physically demanding as well. Sometimes feelings can be nearer the surface or you are aware of the past colouring the present in some way. And, at times, there can be tension between you and a family member or those you visit or who are visiting you. Mars here may also manifest as more decisiveness or energy related to property matters, the domestic set-up and stamina needed for everyday maintenance in and around the home base.
Jupiter is working through your sign from June 25th 2013 – July 16th 2014 signalling the beginning of a real growth spurt in your life when your mind will be opening to new fields of interest which get you learning new things. Travel, foreign cultures or higher education could be part of the picture. You’ll be entertaining new possibilities, looking to the distant horizons and thinking bigger. The expansive, benevolent influence of Jupiter will encourage a new understanding and could plunge you into unfamiliar scenarios which teach you a great deal. A good time to launch into new projects or a fresh enterprise. Also a time to look into legal matters in a major or minor way.
Jupiter enters Leo on July 16th. Growth will tend to come more through finances, property or other material ways. Definitely the time to capitalize upon your assets, be they material or in the form of inborn talents. This vibration can attract useful resources or opportunities and you discover more about their value in your life. Take advantage of Jupiter here to underpin whatever might help you expand mentally or physically into new territories as it could result in better finances or better use of your talents, now and in the future. By thinking bigger, you should do better in basic material ways.
All natives or your sign will feel the vibration of Jupiter over 2014 but before mid-year its influence will be stronger.
Saturn began a nearly 3 year transit of Saturn on Oct 5th 2012 and will stay til Xams Eve 2014
Saturn here demands you pay more serious, nurturing attention to the wellbeing or education of children/young ones, speculative or investment projects, or a romantic liaison. These will need a more disciplined, patient approach to slowly come to fruition. So you will be taking the long view and thinking about the future. Creative interests or spare-time activities will need a consistent and disciplined input to achieve. Those of you involved in the arts or promotional or performance-type activities, should understand that a regular, methodical application will bring success in the long run, nothing will happen fast.
In this Saturn cycle you’ll learn how to concentrate your energy into building new routines into activities you find empowering, enterprising creative or competitive.
Cancerians born from 7th July or from 15 degrees Cancer rising will feel this vibration the most.
Uranus continues in a hard aspect to Pluto over 2014 orbiting closest to each other in April/May and November/December near the time of the Solar eclipses, but the aspect is still close over the whole year affecting most strongly those born in the second decanate of the sign.
Uranus will be transiting the top of your chart until 2019. Inspired new beginnings with your general life-direction can occur over the 7 plus years of Uranus here. There may be a several changes of conditions over 2014 if Uranus comes within range of an important point in your natal chart. Change and expansion, especially with Jupiter in your sign until mid-July, may be a governing factor and you will be learning a lot as new doors open in the professional arena but also with partners and other close relationships personal or professional.
A previous set-up may suddenly be replaced and you’ll have to adapt to a different environment. Because are re-thinking the master-plan or wanting a change in your direction, there could be a ‘coup de foudre’ but this is the spirit of revolution which facilitates your evolution and is part of a significant growth process even though it may be unpredictable at times.
Cancerians born 29th June – 9th July or with 8-17 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2014.
Pluto, now in Capricorn for many years in your close relationship area, will help you decide what kind of personal or professional interactions are most worthwhile. Wherever Pluto goes in the chart, there’s a feeling of letting go before a rebirth can occur. This strong drive growing within you pushes you forward with significant relationships and there could be intense interchanges. With the planet of death/rebirth affecting you it could mean some of you are compelled to make a major change or have it thrust upon you by a relationship. This could work to your advantage in the long run as it shakes things up and clears the decks. Finding a fresh direction or another option means steering a new course and for a while it may take guts and tenacity but Pluto will give you the deep conviction to see it through all the way. Pluto, planet of manipulation and control, means that you may encounter these factors in your interactions with others at close quarters but you should stick up for yourself and your value structure will, after a period of disorientation, regenerate and strengthen. Cancerians born in the 2nd-6th July or with 10-14 degrees rising will feel this vibration most strongly over 2014.
Early Cancerians will feel the beneficial effect of the Neptune transit in 2014. For you this means a pull to function from more educational, philosophical, idealistic levels. You could become a pilgrim or spiritual seeker or others may consult you for your seasoned outlook on life. Along the way, some of your pet theories and beliefs could slowly erode. Some of you may develop your artistic or communication skills or access a larger audience with your compassion, imagination or intuition . Others may become interested in a particular place you feel is sacred or special. You could be drawn to mystical teachings, higher knowledge, writing and speaking. You may develop an interest in metaphysics, inter-dimensional travel or have telepathic experiences. You may discover that what you thought was written in stone as true you have been seeing through rose-tinted spectacles and is an illusion – maybe a mass illusion. There may be some confusion about your beliefs but doubt and skepticism are healthy, so test out theories before deciding what is truth for you. Cancerians born in 24th-30th June or with 3-8 degrees of Cancer rising will feel this vibration the most.
