Cancer

JUN 21 - JUL 22

Here comes a reminder of how 'what goes around, comes around.' The results of specific actions might not always be immediate, but we all 'reap what we sow' eventually and tend to receive what we give. A decision or action made or taken now could have far-reaching implications. So, make sure what you do is underpinned with plenty of sincerity, positivity, and kindness.

  • Netflix’s Indian Matchmaking Shows Just How Important Astrology Is In Love

    Netflix’s reality show, Indian Matchmaking is back for Season 2. The series follows Sima Taparia, Mumbai’s top matchmaker, as she tries to find lifelong partners for her clients in both India and the United States.

  • Your Horoscope This Week: 7th August to 13th August, 2022

    The week ahead is challenging, intense, and transformative. The good news is that it’s bringing healing our way, which we all need to help us move forward in the best direction. Venus in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces share a tender connection on 7th August, making us run towards our lofty romantic dreams.

  • Your Horoscope This Week: 31st July to 6th August, 2022

    The first week of August is a game changer for us all. Erratic Uranus and the karmic North Node of Destiny unite in Taurus on 31st July. The following day, Mars connects with Uranus and then the North Node of Destiny in Taurus. When we look at the North Node of Destiny, we see what can be brought into our lives. In this case, we are learning to build community and to be accountable for the welfare of others — and, more importantly, ourselves.31st July brings a lucky and rambunctious connection b

  • Your August Horoscope Is Here & Change Is In The Air

    Ch-ch-changes are in the air. You can expect the unexpected for your personal horoscope in August. Shake-ups, breakups, breakdowns, and the unforeseen are coming our way at the beginning of the month, making the majority of the days of August a time to catch up to the big reveals.

Fated choices and ci

  • Your Horoscope This Week: 10th July to 16th July, 2022

    We begin this week with a sextile between the Sun in Cancer and Uranus in Taurus on the 10th. The Sun in Cancer is known for his emotional valence while Uranus in Taurus is associated with an upending, destructive force. A sextile is a helpful aspect, though its result may not necessarily look like help at all — or at least not the kind of help that’s easy to receive. There’s a sense here that big emotions and big changes are on the agenda, especially because the Sun in Cancer makes a sextile to

  • Your Horoscope This Week: 3rd July to 9th July, 2022

    July’s cosmic weather begins gently, even if some of us have discovered that the world we live in is anything but. These realisations — about justice and the lack of it, about bodily autonomy and how fragile it is — are uncomfortable for those who are new to them. And they are grave reminders for the ones who have always lived on the edge of acceptability — or dangerously far beyond that edge. This tension between knowing and the cost of that knowing is mirrored in the sky on 3rd July when Mercu

  • The Modern Tarot Deck With 13,000 Amazon Reviews & A Near-Perfect Rating

    A modern tarot deck may strike you as an oxymoron; according to Robert Place in The Tarot: History, Symbolism, and Divination, the cards developed in northern Italy in the early fifteenth century. But, in 2021, this Late Middle Age practice has become as commonplace as waking up and checking your Co-Star horoscope app. Many use tarot cards as a sort of pocket-sized spiritual therapist — or, as R29 writer Elizabeth Gulino describes it, “The cards are less about predicting the future than about pr

  • Your July Horoscope Is Here — It’s Time To Embrace Your Power

    Welcome to July! The summer and our horoscopes are heating up. On the 5th of July, chatty Mercury swims into Cancer and action planet Mars enters Taurus. These cosmic shifts will bring on a more passive energy, as Mercury in Cancer doesn’t speak their truths until they feel safe in doing so and Mars in Taurus likes to take a back seat in their passions.The Capricorn full moon on the 13th of July is a chance for us to “adult” ourselves and embrace our power. Venus enters Cancer on the 17th, addin

  • Neptune Retrograde Is Here To Give Us A Cosmic Reality Check

    It’s time for another annual cosmic ritual to take place in our skies: Neptune retrograde. Starting on 28th June and lasting until 3rd December, the Planet of Illusion, Dreams, and Fantasies will appear to spin backwards, sending our perception of our lives and the world around us into a bit of a topsy-turvy ride. Narayana Montúfar, senior astrologer for Astrology.com and author of Moon Signs: Unlock Your Inner Luminary Power, says that Neptune is one of the trickiest planets to master and under

  • Your X-Rated Summer Horoscope For 2022 Is Here

    The summer of 2022 brings a rare connection between rebel planet Uranus and the North Node of Destiny on July 31. Although this is the time they exactly unite, the effects have been underway since January and will be felt for years to come. Uranus and the North Node link up every 15 years, but this is the first time in centuries and the next time won't be until 2357. The years Uranus traveled through Taurus was back in 1934-1941. The revolutionary planet breezes through each zodiac sign in appro

  • Cancer Season Is Here To Chill You Out

    On 21st June — the same day as the summer solstice and the longest day of the year — the sun will leave its spot in Gemini and make its way over to the sign of the crab, meaning that Cancer season has finally arrived. For the next month, we’ll feel more connected to our roots, more sentimental, and ready to connect deeper with our homes and ourselves. Cancer season is often an emotional time, yes — but who ever said crying was a bad thing? Narayana Montúfar, senior astrologer for Astrology.com a

  • Your Horoscope This Week: 12th June to 18th June, 2022

    Another week of June and another week between eclipses, we begin with Mercury’s renewed efforts under the stars of Gemini, this time without the burden of Saturn in the mix. Things move forward, however slowly, and they change in their own time. The full moon in Sagittarius perfects on the 14th, opposing the Sun in Gemini and heightening our sense of how much is yet to be known in this universe (despite over-saturation, despite so much information at our fingertips). While a square to Neptune in

  • Your Horoscope This Week: 5th June to 11th June, 2022

    It’s only right that Saturn stations retrograde on 4th June, just after Mercury stations direct in Taurus. It’s only to be expected that Saturn makes a waning square to Mercury as the week begins, as if to remind us that the cosmos keeps a schedule we have little power over — no matter how often we study the ephemeris and plan accordingly. Of course, Saturn’s retrograde is a yearly affair and lasts well into October, a transit that ultimately fades into the background of our daily lives. It’s th

  • Mercury Retrograde Is Over — But The Chaos Isn’t

    Mercury, computer artwork. Well folks, it’s time to give yourselves a pat on the back. We’ve survived one of the most-talked about transits in modern astrology: Mercury retrograde. On 3rd June, the Planet of Communication will officially station direct in Taurus, bringing all of the technological haywire, misunderstandings, and confusing communications to an end — at least, we hope. While the end of Mercury retrograde is usually something to celebrate, this transit is closing on a bit of a sour

  • Your Horoscope This Week: 29th May to 4th June, 2022

    This week, we bid May farewell and welcome June, so named after the Roman goddess of marriage and childbirth, as well as the protector of the Roman Empire. But what is an empire to a goddess? In an interview between well-known astrologers, Chris Brennan and Demetra George, George took on the mythology of June and what it can mean for the asteroid Juno’s significance in our collective astrology. She connected the meaning of Juno to “women’s equity across the board” tracing her myth out from under
