Diana's Monthly Cancer Forecast for February 2015
Until the 19th you’ll benefit more from the support or contribution of another in close relationship. It’s not a time to be going it alone, so central to this period, will be how to get the best out of partnerships and other close associations. You and another could be bonding or doing business together. But however it is for you, there is a stronger feeling of mutual interaction – or attraction!
From the 19th is a gear-shifting phase, but you‘ll probably be feeling your way forwards as you intuitively sound things out. 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.
Discussions, ideas and research tend to be strategic and could reveal deep insights. Communications tend to become more involved, intense, or have to be confidential. Your thinking could focus on the financial ramifications in a relationship or revolve around property or possessions belonging to or shared with another. There may be more paperwork 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.
Or it may be that you feel quite passionate about something or someone or, on the flip side, it’s probably easier for someone to push your buttons. Just trust your deeper instincts and try to avoid knee-jerk reactions. Mercury is retrograde until the 11th after which things will tend to clarify more quickly in these areas.
SHAKING OFF THE COBWEBS
Until the 21st Venus supports relationships with those far away, or from a different background. You are more likely to connect with knowledge or expertise which balances your perspective and helps you get the bigger picture. Travel with a partner is possible. You yourself may be valued or admired for your knowledge, know-how or guidance and this may be a good time for putting the word out on to a bigger stage. Publications or education could be emphasized or benefit you materially. You and someone may be on a bit of a learning curve together.
Until the 20th Mars is in a more outgoing, expansive area of your solar chart. At key points over this transit you will be reaching out for new horizons and fresh experiences, so this may be the right moment to launch a new scheme or enterprise or to go on a journey of discovery.
You will be gathering information or learning through doing, but also grasping certain things you didn’t have a clue about before. Some of you may be getting out and about more and this is a good time to shake out the cobwebs. Travel, connecting with foreign lands, giving or taking a course would be a good idea. Some of your physical energy may be needed as you push the envelope of daily life and get right outside of the routine box by stretching yourself mentally or physically.
THE RIGHT IMPRESSION
From the 21st 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.
SCHEMES AND PLANS
From the 20th the Mars position indicates a period for putting physical effort into achieving certain goals and ambitions. These may be career orientated or ‘via’ points on the way to where you hope to end up. Overall, this transit of Mars could inspire you to take more responsibility about your direction in life and you care more about the impressions you make on certain others. Over this long transit you feel the need to work on image or reputation and reach standards which are demanded by those in authority, and, if you are decisive and energetic, Mars will help you get to where you want to go as long as his tendency to be controversial is handled. You may get frustrated with the powers that be as you feel they are slow, aggressive, inefficient or downright un-co-operative. If you manage to keep your cool and not be too hasty, you will make progress with the master-plan, but also with lesser goals and ambitions too.
SHAKING OFF THE COBWEBS
New potentials are in the wind from the 19th. The Sun is in a more outgoing, expansive area which tends to raise the spirits and 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 distant horizons could be emphasized and you may be making plans.
STITCHES IN TIME
Saturn is transiting 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. 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 23rd-27th or with 2-6 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
A FERTILE SOIL TO EXPERIENCE AND GROW
Jupiter is in your area of piggy-bank, property and possessions. Until next August be 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.
Cancerians born 6th-11th or with 14-19 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Cancerians born in the middle 10 days or with 11-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Cancerians born in the middle 10 days or with 12-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Beginning today, and concluding on Friday, the Moon is collaborating with Jupiter. The Moon sitting in Gemini may mean your area of mystery, sprituality, and privacy is filled with a chatty, knowledgable need. While this convenient, natural connection continues, it may be opportune to buy something private, or to dwell on your finances.
As well: continuing today, and ending on the 6th, our Sun is coordinating with Uranus. Our Sun sitting in Aquarius may mean your area of joint finances, sex, and taboo is infused with a power which is eccentric, and quirky. While this harmonious, natural connection continues, it may be opportune to make career changes, or to transform your reputation.
Elsewhere: continuing today, and concluding on the 19th, Mars is moving through Pisces. For you, Cancer, this means about three weeks where foreign people, deep enquiry, and long trips are exciting, and enliven you. Mars, when in the sign of Pisces, provides a contemplative, ethereal activity.
Also On This Day:
- Mercury carries on transiting the sign of Aquarius until the 12th of March.
- Our Moon continues transiting Gemini until Friday.
- A conjunction between Neptune and the planet Mars carries on today, and ends on Friday.

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:
The first Solar eclipse of the year occurs on April 29th your Solar 11th house
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.
