Diana's Monthly Cancer Forecast for May 2014
Until the 21st, the Solar energy makes it a proactive phase when friendships, contacts new and old, or more involvement within a community or a group of kindred spirits could be a key feature. A future-orientated phase when you may be working quite hard achieving an aim which has been on the backburner for a long time or on behalf of friends or a group. Networking or technology is also well highlighted.
From the 3rd, Venus is helping to create more favourable circumstances with authority figures, like bosses, parents who will be positively emphasized as they tend to see you in a good light. There could be an ally – possibly a female – or just someone you feel close to no matter whether they are socially above you or not, who is invaluable to your success or who facilitates an ambition. You yourself could be the one who takes a firm but friendly stand and enables another to achieve their goals. This transit improves image and helps you polish up presentation skills and can help you and another to achieve success.
Until the 8th, is a period in which to discuss, consider, and generally chew the fat in the company of others. Others could find you articulate and your ideas interesting as you feel freer to experiment and explore different concepts or avenues of expression. Equally others could surprise or delight you with their fresh and unusual take on things. Anything which serves the interests of a collective will be on your mind.
TRUSTING YOUR INSTINCTS
From the 8th, Mercury is working from deeper levels and your mind tends to become introspective and more open to emotional or subtle energies. You may be a little preoccupied, by things going on behind the scenes or within you and you could find yourself zoning out or just feeling mentally at 6’s and 7’s as things may be a little up-in-the-air. Zoning out isn’t necessarily a bad thing and, at this time, you can do your best thinking in a restful, nurturing environment or in a private bubble with others. Imagination and intuition are working well. Also a good time for healing, spiritual or imaginative activities, so, listen to your inner guidance, hold the vision of how you want it to be, and plan to move beyond what is now getting in the way of your happiness and wellbeing.
From the 21st it’s a proactive phase when friendships, contacts new and old, or more involvement within a community or a group of kindred spirits could be a key feature. A future-orientated phase when you may achieve an aim which has been on the backburner for a long time. Networking is also well highlighted.
From the 29th, Mercury is in your sign livening things up and putting you more in the stream of information exchange and mixing with others.
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 near the beginning of the last decanate or with 17-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
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 first/second decanate or with 8-12 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
PAINTING WITH A BROADER 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 first/second decanate or with 14-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
JUPITER/URANUS/PLUTO early month
You may be feeling restless and looking for ways to be less hemmed in and freer to express yourself in the way you prefer.
Also, what do you have to chuck out in order to improve your life? What ballast do you have to drop in order to expand into fresh territories? What lengths will you have to go to in order to more fully inhabit the version of yourself you have now become?
This may be a time when you are deeply questioning things and being very honest with yourself about what is more worthwhile at this stage of the journey.
(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.
