Cancer Monthly Horoscope

CANCER MONTHLY HOROSCOPE - GENERAL
August 2022

While the Sun left Cancer on 23rd July, bringing your birthday month to a close, the launch of this new solar year doesn’t end until Venus leaves on 12th August. Held back by a retrograde phase, Venus was late to return to Cancer this year but as the last planet to arrive, she is also the last to leave. This is giving your heart the last say in what you want from the coming year but because Venus returned during the final days of your birthday month, this is more an add on than a standalone visit. Until leaving Venus is on a mission to not only raise the bar on your personal, heart and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year but to start turning desires into reality. It is then that Venus will join the Sun in your income sector, where as the planet of money she will kick off what can be some of the most lucrative weeks of any year. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your income sector, putting the solar spotlight on your income situation, matters and options. It helps that you start the month with Mercury here and while he will leave on 4th August this is giving you a smart head for money from the start. While this is the point in any year when there is new movement on the income front, there is one very big difference this year. That difference is Jupiter, with the planet of luck and expansion not only in your career sector for the first time in 12 years but having just turned retrograde on 29th July. The month begins with the Sun and Jupiter in a friendly aspect, sending a message from the start that this is a month when new income and untapped professional potential will be going hand in hand. Meanwhile, Mercury will make an early return to your communication sector on 4th August, kicking off the first planetary activity on the communication front for the year. This will add to what is already a good month for personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building.

CANCER MONTHLY HOROSCOPE - LOVE
August 2022

By the time Venus, the planet of love leaves Cancer on 12th August you should have a better sense of what you want from love and your relationships for the coming year though it might not be until her final days that everything comes together. Held back by a retrograde phase, Venus was late to return this year but it also means that she is late to leave, giving your heart the last say as you move into your new solar year. Venus returned in the final days of your birthday month and is still here as you move into August, with her final days some of the most important. This is partly because the Moon will make its only visit to your romantic and relationship sectors while Venus is in your sign in her final days but mainly because this is also when she will connect directly with the forces in play on the romantic and relationship fronts. The Moon will move through your romantic sector from 4th August to 7th August and as the only visit while Venus is in Cancer, these romantically charged lunar vibes will play a big part in shaping your romantic expectations for the coming year. Auspiciously, this comes just as Venus is forming a friendly aspect to the South Node in your romantic sector. The Moon will make its only visit to your relationship sector while Venus is in your sign from 9th August to 11th August, leaving just a day before she does. This will not only ensure you are emotionally engaged during Venus’ final days in Cancer but just as she has clashed with Pluto in your relationship sector, exposing what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. This will also be a chance to take advantage of Mercury, the planet of communication’s return to your communication sector on 4th August, on hand to give your emotional responses and relationships a voice.

CANCER MONTHLY HOROSCOPE - MONEY
August 2022

Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of August in your income sector, the solar spotlight is always on your income situation, matters and options at this time of year. When the Sun returned on 23rd July it was to find Mercury already here, with his return three days earlier beginning the first planetary activity on this side of the financial fence since last August. Since then, all the focus has been on the other side of the financial fence and with Saturn in your financial sector, that meant the focus was not only more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have, but with a focus on taking responsibility. Mercury’s return began the first planetary activity on the income front since the Sun left last August and while he is only here for 15 days, this has given the smart head for money needed to have your head in the game from the start. Mercury will leave on 4th August but that won’t leave the Sun on his own. It was a day after the Sun returned that the dwarf planet Ceres returned, beginning her first deep dive into your income needs and priorities in four years. Here now until the end of next month, this is something that can happen in real time. Meanwhile, it is Venus’ return on 12th August that will begin what can be the most lucrative weeks of any year. While the Sun, Mercury and Venus return to your income sector at around this time every year, it has been 12 years since they returned to find Jupiter in your career sector. With the planet of money in your income sector and the planet of luck in your career sector, this short period of planetary activity could be especially lucrative this year. It was a New Moon late last month that has already given things a jump start while a Full Moon in your financial sector on 12th August, the same day that Venus returns to your income sector could energise both sides of the financial fence.
