Cancer Horoscope

21 Jun - 22 Jul

Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope


November 2019

A group effort won't pan out the way you wanted. A tense Full Moon on the 12th indicates creative squabbles. This is one of those situations where too many cooks have spoiled the broths. Although you have worked to keep your ego in check, this has only allowed pushier individuals to get their way. You'll be highly disappointed with the result. The sooner you can escape this organisation, the better. There are better channels for your extraordinary talent. The New Moon on the 26th inspires you to begin a health regimen. Be realistic when setting fitness goals. It will take time and persistence to reach a particular milestone. Let the beginning states of this ritual be focus on building endurance. You may discover that you can't exercise as vigorously as you had hoped. That's perfectly fine. Slow and steady wins the race. Be sure you get enough rest between workouts.


Thursday 14th of November 2019

Stop putting faith in someone who claims to have all the answers. When you're not sure which direction to take, trust your intuition. If the prospect of going on a diet fills you with dread, don't do it. Develop a healthier body image instead. Arguments with colleagues make work unpleasant. Instead of further contributing to this toxic environment, try to generate positive energy. Avoid gossip. Compliment someone who has been struggling. Ask for help when you're not sure how to perform tasks. Morale will start to lift.


Week beginning Monday 11th of November 2019

Compromise and consideration will be the best way of getting the most out of your relationships. In a close and loving partnership, you may have to try extra hard to understand your other half's feelings. Some people find it difficult to express their emotions. A generous offer or gesture made to a person in need of some help will be accepted with gratitude. You may not realise how many people respect you and welcome your advice and company.

About Cancer

Information about your birth sign


Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac. It's a cardinal sign, with natural leadership ability, so you like to be the boss!

You are a water sign ruled by the Moon. The Moon changes sign approximately every two and half days on its monthly journey around the zodiac. Its gravitational pull moves the tides of our vast oceans. Inhabiting a human body doesn't make any of us immune to this force. We're around 60 percent water.

Being a Cancerian, you feel this lunar movement more acutely. Some say you can be moody or crabby, we would probably all be crabby if our inner landscape shifted slightly every two and a half days!

The symbol for Cancer is the crab. A crab wears a hard shell which protects its squashy and vulnerable innards. Like the crab, you wear a hard shell over your vulnerable feelings and generally keep them to yourself. The side of you we're allowed to see is kindly, gentle, nurturing, capable and strong.

A crab on the move will move sideways, usually with stealth! You rarely go directly after what you want, you often sidle up to it or approach in a round about way.

A crab has tenacious pincers, it grabs on and holds tight. You can have difficulty letting go, even when the cupboards are bulging! Also you'll remember, and sometimes dwell on, old hurts and injustices (whether real or imagined), long after the events.

Being the first of the water signs makes you super-sensitive, your feelings are easily hurt and you're not able to shrug things off like some. You probably have accurate hunches and some innate psychic ability, depending on the rest of your horoscope.

Cancer rules our home and family life, so your home and family are especially important. In Cancer we need to feel we have somewhere we belong, and just as the crab has its shell, your home is your shell, a safe place of retreat when you need to nourish yourself.

The energy of the Moon is matriarchal in essence, so most of you make excellent, supportive parents. Those who don't have children, can parent their co-workers and friends or they nurture in their professional capacity. Care-workers, collectors, cradles and caterers all belong to your sign. Cancer men are often good cooks and some can outshine the women in the kitchen.

Traditionally you get on best with the other sensitive water signs, Scorpio and Pisces, also with the earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, but there are 12 different faces of Cancer, depending on which zodiac sign the Moon was transiting on the day of your birth. If you have a fiery or airy Moon, then you'll get along with those signs too.

If you don't know the sign of the wandering Moon on the day of your birth, one of our astrologers will be happy to tell you more. For those of you born on a day when the Moon changed signs, we will need your time of birth too.
