Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope


July 2020

You make a fabulous impression on everyone you meet as July gets off the starting blocks. This is a great time to go on a job interview, audition or a first date. On the 5th, a Lunar Eclipse brings an intimate relationship to the next level. Instead of spending all your time with your partner, you'll be able to expand your social circle to include friends that are exclusively yours. Contradicting, or thinking you know better than your employer will bring an angry response on the 8th; it may be better to keep your opinions to yourself. A dream vacation will inspire you to transform your look on the 12th; this is a great time to go for an image makeover or update your wardrobe. Don't let a business or romantic partner change your mind on the 14th; stick to your guns. The New Moon on the 20th will tempt you into making an emotional appeal. Never expose your Achilles heel to rivals; they'll take advantage of this soft spot.


Monday 13th of July 2020

There are just a few more things left to do and you will complete a project already begun. If you leave it any longer, someone else will finish this task for you. This would be annoying when so far, you've done it all yourself. So be sure to complete the work today. Why let a workmate steal your thunder?


Week beginning Monday 13th of July 2020

Sometimes life feels overwhelming and the pressure of it all makes you anxious. When you feel this way you withdraw from the crowd. You could do with some time alone. Those who care about you understand what you need and they will go out of their way to make certain you get a little peace and quiet. A difficult work assignment will become increasingly easier thanks to the help of a talented newcomer. As the week ends there will be a greater amount of cooperation in the workplace.

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.
