Diana's Monthly Cancer Forecast for August 2015
Until the 23rd finances, goods, property or anything which affects your material security or physical wellbeing is likely to have your attention. So key themes are centred around ‘stuff’ – yours (or theirs), and perhaps protecting it, moving it, ditching it or acquiring more. Also seeing how to improve things on a practical, physical, material level which may improve wellbeing – yours or another’s.
QUALITY NOT QUANTITY?
Until the 8th conversations tend to have a more practical slant. Discussions may revolve around material matters, or basic physical needs and you may be looking into how to improve things and get it all working in a satisfactory way. Thinking will revolve around essential needs and gathering information about whatever would be best for yourself or others in practical ways. Plans may focus upon useful resources or practical ways of achieving this or that result. Buying/selling, renting/leasing may also be on your mind at this time. And stuff! What is of most value to you and how can you use your natural abilities more.
8th-28th Mercury is in a very outgoing, chatty area of your Solar chart but it’s also to do with communications equipment, media etc. Increased interchanges through speaking and writing are more likely, and possibly more paper-work. Overall, it tends to be a great time for making connections, learning and sharing new stuff, in person or over the wires.
From the 28th the mental focus could revolve around family, extended family, neighbours, or property matters. Correspondence and discussions may be about a physical space inside/outside, or points on the map. You may be mulling things over or feeling more emotional or nostalgic. There may be communications with relations or parents for some of you and others may be considering a legacy or a tradition of some kind. Whatever is going on feelings tend to be nearer the surface and certain interchanges may touch a nerve. Either way it tends to be a mentally busy or social time in, around or about a base of operations – wherever that is – or you may be on the move more.
THE MATERIAL WORLD
Venus is in an area concerning money, property, possessions and other basic stuff. Overall, it means you can do okay in financial negotiations as your people skills will tend to improve. Buying/selling/renting/leasing tends to go in your favour and applying for funding or investments made under this transit can prove beneficial as long as you are sensible and don’t take a wild risk. In general, Venus tends to ease things materially and can open the path between money or other goodies and you but, just make sure the traffic isn’t travelling more away from you than towards you – unless this is your choice. Venus will be here until October apart from when she nips into Virgo between the 19th and August 1st bringing more fluency, entertainment and potential success into everyday interactions with others.
READY TO ROLL
Until the 9th Mars in your sign, which means the need for you to be decisive and to take action has been increasing. It also brings more hustle and bustle around you. More stamina may be needed but vitality tends to improve and, whether you like it or not, the goals and objectives are more obvious. Definitely the time to get the ball rolling on things – or just keep up! As Mars is about initiating things, whether you choose it or not, this is a time to be more dynamic and physically active and get on with what needs doing either out of choice or necessity. Some of you will get plunged into situations which demand assertiveness, leadership or just get you working harder.
Even though Mars tends to boost vitality, be aware that Mars can run you ragged and use up your time or sap your energy, so take the trouble to engineer enough down time for yourself. The advice is to be smart and customize things to suit you better and pace yourself so you will have the reserves you need to tackle life, balancing your efforts with enough R&R. Overall, this is your opportunity to get with whatever program you need to improve things for yourself personally. Mars does not like hanging around and so you should not procrastinate once you have thought something through, but impatience and overstretching your energies are Mars’ weaker side so just watch your step as you go forward and you can be successful.
MOBILIZE ASSETS AND TALENTS
From the 9th Mars is demanding you put more effort and decisiveness into getting organized in a physical or security-orientated sense. The piggy-bank, possessions or any other bit of territory may need a more motivated and decisive approach. And that may mean a more dynamic application of talents and skills. You could be striving to get your hands on certain things or places, but watch your step related to basic material security, money, property or possessions as Mars can be demanding, impulsive or too hasty at times. Your physical strength may be stretched or there may be tensions as you try to work through what needs to be done in a physical/material/financial sense. You may be more actively engaged in diet or health matters – your own or someone else’s.
Saturn, has returned to her previous position until September. It can mean ultimate success if you pay more focused, nurturing attention to creative or investment projects, also regarding the affairs of children/young ones, animals 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. A more disciplined, patient approach will help them bear fruit. It may also mean that, because of one (or more) of these examples you feel held back or limited in your freedom to frolic so you will need to proceed in a more structured or organized fashion. Cancerians born 20th-23rd July with from 27 degrees rising will feel the energy the most this forecast period.
A FERTILE SOIL TO EXPERIENCE AND GROW
Until the 11th Jupiter is in your area of piggy-bank, property and possessions. Remain open to whatever resource, knowledge or experience might help you expand mentally or physically into fresh territories. Such decisions could teach you a great deal and even turn out to be lucrative or worthwhile in other ways down the line.
Jupiter here will also help you decide what is of highest priority to you at this stage in your life‘s journey. He will help you to think positively about basic resources (money or property) and he will help you realize your own worth through opportunities for you to show others what talents and abilities you have. Others are more likely to show appreciation of your property, talents or experience over this long transit.
FLIT LIKE A BUTTERFLY
From the 11th Jupiterian expansiveness will tend to support a more outgoing, upbeat, positive frame of mind until next September. You may be on a learning curve developing yourself though education, speaking, writing or other forms of creative expression. There could be more 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 Cancer rising or those born from 18th July or with 27 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Cancerians born 10th-14th July or with 19-21 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

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.
