Diana's Monthly Cancer Forecast for February 2016
Until the 19th is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards intuitively and sounding things out as you go. You may have to be more conscious of another’s side of things. You may also be weighing up what another’s side of things is in a financial, legal or moral sense. You could be musing over some deeper questions, but answers will come more through intuition than the intellect. Transition will occur when, through mutual action with, or challenge from another, your value structure (and instinct) tells you what is the right thing to do.
Until the 14th Mercury is in your opposite sign. Communications – personal or professional, in close interactions and collaborations are highlighted and you’ll probably be sharing ideas and connecting with someone’s slant on things and even if you disagree, at least it helps you clarify your own thinking. You may be in relationship with someone whose guidance or information is valuable. Or you yourself may be more looked upon as the information-giver, go-between, or guide.
From the 14th discussions, ideas and research tend to be strategic and could be revealing as you drill down to fundamentals and suss things out. At times, communications could become more involved, intense, or confidential. Your thinking could focus on sensitive issues like the joint financial situation or revolve around property or possessions belonging to or shared with another. There may be more paperwork or some rethinking related to an agreement or contract. At this time, some of you may be giving confidential advice and perhaps ‘sensing’ more than thinking as your gut knowing will be stronger.
It may be that you feel quite passionate about something or someone and feelings go deep. Or, on the flip side, it’s probably easier for someone to push your buttons. Just trust your deeper instincts, stay away from ego, and try to avoid knee-jerk reactions. Get to the basics within the current conditions.
Until the 17th Venus is strong in her favourite place and affairs of the heart are favoured. You and someone could be feeling a closer rapport, no matter whether it’s a personal or professional association. A special someone could come into your life and some of you could be tying the knot. But all relationships, personal, or professional tend to flow more easily. You and another could be enjoying eachother’s company or simply lending eachother a hand.
From the 17th Venus is in a place of emotional depth and something can touch your feelings deeply, or you can move others – great for the romantics and artists among you but also regarding material resources which come through another. Formally or informally things may become more intimate or ’involved’. Venus here could also manifest as a relationship helping you out materially or supporting you emotionally in major or minor ways. So, a good time to acquire and use resources to benefit your joint material interests with others. Negotiations could go in your favour and there could be deeper, more rewarding bonds with another. Some of you may 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. Also, a relationship could revolve around a shared space, possessions or property but things can be ironed out to mutual advantage.
A NEW SENSE OF SELF?
Mars is in a more spontaneous, and for some, romantic area, giving you the trigger to be more in the mood to take a chance on love or to speculate upon other possibilities. Mars tends to be hasty, so it’s best to sleep on something before making major decisions and don’t risk what you can’t afford to lose. There could be occasions when you feel at the centre of attention or more physically in demand. Your creative energy, or competitiveness will tend to come to the fore. Whatever is going on, you could feel more in your power, more in touch with your ‘child within’ but equally, you could be busier because of children or younger ones in your life. Overall this is the time to get active with projects you enjoy and which are rewarding and empowering. Great for the entrepreneurs and ‘creatives’ amongst you, and you may be more in the mood to invest time or resources on an outside chance.
A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
New potentials are in the wind from the 19th. The Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area tending to raise the spirits as you see fresh possibilities outside of the routine box. Time to make plans or launch into projects. 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.
STITCHES IN TIME
Saturn is in your area of the job, health matters and all manner of practical tasks. This is a service-orientated area of your Solar chart. But it’s also the stitch-in-time-saves-nine part too. Keeping ahead of the game with the practical side of chores and health matters would be smart. Anything health and fitness related will take time to resolve itself so, be patient! Generally it means harder work and more assistance to others on a regular basis or keeping things ticking over with general maintenance and repairs and that includes the body too. Also it could be a time for plugging away at learning practical skills, and generally applying yourself in useful ways. Service providers, co-workers or even certain equipment or techniques may present obstacles or cramp your style at times. These challenges make you savvy and push you into wiser choices in the future.
Cancerians born 4th-8th July with from 13-17 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this forecast period.
FLIT LIKE A BUTTERFLY
Jupiterian expansiveness will tend to support a more outgoing, upbeat, positive frame of mind until September. You may be on a learning curve developing yourself though education, speaking, writing or other forms of creative expression. There could be more interesting daily exchanges which are positive, revealing or there are more comings and goings to and from a locality. New concepts, jargons and connections will be carved into your mental landscape between now and August. Early Cancerians and Cancerians born from 10th-15th July or with 18-23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Cancerians born 7th-10/11th July or with 16-19 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Cancerians born 6th-9th July or with 15-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

First retrograde on Jan 21st – February 11th – Aquarius 17-1 degrees
Second retrograde on 18th May – 11th June – Gemini 13-4 degrees

THERE WILL BE 2 SOLAR ECLIPSES IN 2015:
The first Solar eclipse of the year occurs on March 20th in your 9th/10th house.
This eclipse covering the next 6 months, could trigger the Mercury/Neptune vibe in early Pisces. Just make sure you don’t get the wrong end of the stick because a communication was unclear or you confuse someone with your own lack of clarity.
Reaching out for the knowledge and exploring new possibilities and dimensions of experience. Take the initiative regarding your direction and your goals.
The second Solar eclipse of the year occurs on Sept 13th in your 3rd house
A time of fresh starts through connections new and old, gathering information, also reaching out to siblings or not putting off contacting that certain person.
Astrologically speaking, as one of the Cardinal signs, there’s a lot of planetary action continuing to affect your Sun sign in 2015 with Uranus and Pluto making a strong impact. 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…
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 and sometimes exciting feeling that change is in the air and that your direction in the wider world is going through a cycle of change. Certain close relationships will never be the same again and even though it may not feel like it at the time, it’s your sub-conscious choosing what is taking shape.
Venus will be in long transits beginning late in the year………
Venus will be in Leo from June 6th – Sept 17th which is potentially good news for you Cancer as the abundance of Venus will be gracing a materialistic area to do with finances, property, and possessions. It is also the field of your innate talents. With Venus in a long transit here could get yourself a good deal on something but also find that a talent becomes lucrative.
Jupiter is in Leo until August 11th . 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.
Cancerians born from mid-July with from 23 degrees rising will feel the energy of Jupiter in Leo the most.
Jupiter enters Virgo on August 11th beginning a cycle of developing yourself through communications, education or creative self-expression. In person or over the wires, you can benefit through networking, exchanging information and improving your communication style through any media and people skills. This is right up your street Gemini. If you are ready to seize fresh opportunities and learn new things, you begin to see a range of happier options unfolding before you as Jupiterian expansiveness influences you into a more outgoing, positive frame of mind but Saturn will keep you realistic about what’s doable in practical terms. There could be more comings and goings within the locality, or social life could become a busy hub of mental activity and a learning resource as well. You can develop people skills, learn a new language or jargon, visit unfamiliar places or mix with a culture or a mind-set different to what you are used to. New pathways will be carved into your mental landscape. And this is a good period for connecting with creative thinking and expressing yourself freely through different media maybe channelling your thoughts and intuitions and getting the bigger picture as your mental map expands.
Cancerians born after mid-July or with up to 23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most in 2015.
For you Cancer, Saturn’s new transit in Sagittarius may equate to a more challenging work schedule, or for some, a need to take health and fitness more seriously – your own or someone else’s. This is the ‘stitch in time saves nine’ position of Saturn. Generally it means harder work and more service to others on a regular basis and keeping things ticking over with maintenance and repairs. You may be in more regular contact with co-workers medicos, therapists or service-providers now. Any of these may feel challenging because it will be through them that you meet the tests of Saturn. A great time for learning practical skills and applying yourself in useful ways so as to get useful results.
Saturn will be in this transit all year except between June 15th and Sept 18th 2015
Cancerians born up to 5th July or with up to 23 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2015.
Between June 15th and Sept 18th
Saturn challenges come through children/young ones, speculative or investment projects, or a romance. These areas, hobbies and competitive activities will need a more disciplined, patient approach to slowly come to fruition. Creative interests or spare-time activities will need a consistent and disciplined input. 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 transit you’ll learn how to concentrate your energy into building new routines into activities you find empowering, enterprising creative or competitive.
Cancerians born from 17th July or from 27 degrees Cancer rising will feel this vibration the most.
Uranus continues in a hard aspect to Pluto over 2015 orbiting closest to each other up to mid-April
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 2015 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 you are re-thinking the master-plan or wanting a change in your direction, there could be a ‘coup de foudre’ when things happen fast, 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 2nd-14th July or with 11-21 degrees rising will feel this vibration the most over 2015.
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, your feelings are more sensitive and there will be a letting go which may feel inevitable or you cling to bygone scenarios which makes evolving more difficult. But Pluto is about rebirth from the raw material of the old way, the old life. This strong drive growing within you intensifies certain relationship interactions and there could be intense exchanges at times. With the planet of death/rebirth affecting you it could mean some of you are compelled to make major changes or have it thrust upon you by a someone in close 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 from the 4th-8th July or with 11-16 degrees rising will feel this vibration most strongly over 2015.
Early Cancerians will feel the beneficial effect of the Neptune transit in 2015. For you this means a pull to make sense of the mystic or unknown in more educated, philosophical, idealistic ways. Along the way, some of your pet theories and beliefs could slowly dissolve. You could become a pilgrim or spiritual seeker or you serve others with your knowledge or sage advice. Some of you may develop your communication skills and access a larger audience with your knowledge, compassion 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, or the arts. 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 27th June-4th July or with 4-11 degrees of Cancer rising will feel this vibration the most.
