Cancer Monthly Horoscope 2019 ~ Eclipse Special
The Solar Eclipse January 6 falls in your 7th house. Your romantic relationships, or lack of them, are given a great cosmic shot in the arm by the Solar Eclipse. This can work out in a variety of ways. The ‘shot’ can have you instantly feeling incomplete and empty until you get your next hit. That means the next six months could have you constantly pining for your mystical other half
You will experience yearning for a soulmate which might actually prompt you into doing something to rectify that solo situation, something you might not have been motivated to do before. Therefore it really could be that the classic Eclipse in the house of marriage, actually does bring a marriage! (Or at least a marriage of sorts.) You could also form a partnership that could be life-changing in terms of a business too. Legal contracts are highlighted, so important deals can be signed during this time also.
The Lunar Eclipse January 21 falls in your 2nd house. Your self-worth is called into question by a crisis that hits your partner’s bank balance or there is a sudden demand of debt owed. Are you feeling insecure because your perceived value relies so much on the material success of another? This can emphasis the parasitical relationship between banker and borrower or the addict and its drug pusher.
This Lunar eclipse will hit you hard in the pocket if you rely too much on the generosity of others. If you have lost out financially then the Lunar Eclipse’s message is that you have not invested enough in your own self esteem. We feel good about ourselves when we have worked hard on our usefulness in the world. This does not mean we have to be earning big bucks, our worth can be bringing up children with patience and kindness.
Cancer Love & Money For January 2019
Cancer Career Horoscope
Mercury travels through your 7th house from January 5 to 23. This is a time for cooperation and teamwork and you will find yourself slipping easily between different sections of the company. If you work for yourself, this is the time to get out of the cave and go networking. You might feel you can’t get anything done as your ideas have dried up. In that case, seek input from others who can offer a fresh perspective.
It’s time to think of getting some help or collaborating with someone. Maybe you have run out of ideas requiring assistance from people who can help you see things from a different view. This is not the time to try and be too self-sufficient. Getting business coaching would be a good move or simply getting together socially with people you work with just so you can brainstorm as a team in a more informal manner.
Cancer Love Horoscope
Venus enters your 6th house on January 7. This is the optimum time for getting into a good health routine. Once the timetable is set then it’s much easier to keep up a lifestyle that makes you more attractive to others. So pamper and preen yourself in the meantime because Venus enters your marriage house next month. Hurrah! Until then, this is a time of deferred gratitude, so get any boring, self-maintenance tasks out of the way like going to the dentist. You can enjoy guilt-free leisure time later on when your social life picks up again.
These horoscopes are most accurate when read for your ascendant, but if you have your Sun plus a stellium (2 or more planets) in this sign then you will find that these horoscopes will ring true for your Sun also. All mainstream horoscopes are written using solar houses, which, in others words, is writing for your ascendant. However, the majority of astrologers won’t tell you that because they realise most of their readers will not know their ascendant. If you do not know your ascendant please use this free chart maker to find it. Once you have done that you can also read more about your rising decan and star too! It is the most personal point of your chart and the only one (Along with your ruling planet) that really describes you personally and your incarnation for this lifetime. Please read my The Zodiac Decans ~ Astrological Use & History post for greater understanding in using the decans in general.
THE CANCER INCARNATION
Ascendant Cancer 1
Alhena 9º (Heliacal rising star.) “The person born with a strong sense of purpose, to align oneself with a mission or an idea, to have a vocation which guides one’s life. To have a talent in speaking out” 
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Cancer decan 1 the persuading pirouettes and rabid loyalty behaviour will be most notable in love relationships. Problems occur when a partner is turned into a pet project. These folk can so easily seduce their new lover into such comfort that figurative ‘muscles’ start to degenerate. The relationship starts off blissful as these loyal hunting dogs massage their chosen prey into total submission. Cancer 1 rising loves to take care of course and whatever they do is so darn healing! Their magic touch soon becomes addictive. Eventually, of course, Cancer 1 rising burns out and starts to get crabby, and this is a rude awakening to the pampered lover. Cancer 1 can get a nasty backlash from their now ‘spoilt-rotten’ spouse. They then wonder why every relationship starts so sweetly and ends so bitterly. The best way around this is for Cancer 1 rising to find an all-consuming passion for something other than their partner, this will dilute the tendency to get so carried away with their love affairs. With other distractions, they simply will not have the time or energy to go turbo with their room service! When children arrive this can often throw their marriage into a rough patch as the spouse is suddenly deprived of having Cancer 1’s undivided attention.
ASCENDANT CANCER 1 EXAMPLES: 14th Dalai Lama, Gene Roddenberry, Mary Shelley, Lord Byron, J. M. Barrie, Anthony Burgess, Jilly Cooper, Leo Tolstoy, Harold Wilson, Alan Rickman, Kenneth Branagh, Ian Shaw, Sarah Bernhardt, Hedy Lamarr, Ryan O’Neal, Jayne Mansfield, Joan Collins, Farrah Fawcett, Kurt Russell, Patty Boyd, Glenda Jackson, Eva Gabor, Juliette Binoche, Ben Affleck, Milo Jovovich, Billie Piper, Cilla Black, Karen Carpenter, Cher, Tchaikovsky, Franz Schubert, Hector Berlioz, Jean Renoir, Arthur Schopenhauer, Max Ernst, Heidi Crespa, Lee Harvey Oswald, Neptune Discovery, Ronald & Reginald Kray, O’Neal/Fawcett Davison.
Ascendant Cancer 2
Sirius 14º “Kingly preferment… On the Ascendant and with Mars combined, Sirius can be quite dangerous, pushing ahead with too much ambition is then seen, resulting in dangers by injuries or attempts on the native’s life.”  and (Heliacal rising star). ‘Thinking of one’s own life as part of something bigger; devoting oneself to a noble cause. An awareness of the importance of the moment. To seek and live with the gods.” [7a]
Canopus 15º “ Canopus on the Ascendant is supposed to give a love of travel and also to instigate fights and quarrels resulting in lawsuits; the native, however, can channel these tendencies constructively, with astuteness and a sense of real earnestness.”  and (Heliacal rising star) “To naturally seek a new way, to look for the new approach to problems. A talent for leading others into new ideas, but also a tendency to be dominating and get involved in power struggles” [7b]
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Cancer decan 1 the ‘Devoted Wolves & Hermit Crabs’ behavior will be most notable in love relationships. There is definitely a great story-telling ability here whether it be in song, film or writing. In relationships, this might also mean the telling of a lot of little white lies! Another possibility is turning a brief fling into a long drawn out melodrama (Must like the classic film “Brief Encounter”.) This is Isis behavior par excellence, piecing together narratives to try to figure out what lies deep within their partner’s psyche. Of course, this is a hugely romantic position, but it can also get completely hysterical when their rose-tinted affair shatters. This position is not the most realistic when it comes to relationships and they can often choose a ‘wrong un’ due to this decan’s innate naivety and passionate nature. Love is one big fairytale for them, but the native wilfully ignores that in all the best stories lurks a big bad wolf. However, these folk find that dark, Pollux side of love irresistible and can help but be drawn down the most gnarled and twisted path in the spookiest forest they can find. All the while, their friends watching the melodrama are screaming, no, no don’t go down there! There is always one… and it’s usually Cancer decan 2.
ASCENDANT CANCER 2 EXAMPLES: Bill Gates, Albert Einstein, Guglielmo Marconi, Alexander Fleming, Boris Yeltsin, Yasser Arafat, Steven Spielberg, Mel Gibson, Robert Di Niro, Richard Gere, Gary Oldman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Lily Tomlin, Elizabeth Hurley, Molly Ringwald, Jack Lemmon, Jerry Lewis, Tyra Banks, Jim Henson, Judy Garland, Captain Beefheart, George Michael, Kanye West, Van Morrison, Nick Drake, Mick Hucknall, Joni Mitchell, Billy Joel, Suzanne Vega, Liv Tyler, Marc Almond, Victoria Beckham, Sharon Tate, Josef Mengele, Leona Helmsley, Thomas Watt Hamilton, Violette Szabo, Dan Howell, William Shakespeare, Francesco de Goya, Diego Rivera, Max Ernst, Pope Francis, Helena Blavatsky, Teal Scott Swan, Robert Hand, Diana K Rosenberg, Deborah Houlding, Michael Phelps, Bruce Willis/Demi Moore Davison.
Ascendant Cancer 3
Castor 20º “ Blindness, bad eyes, injuries to the face, disgrace, stabs, wounds, imprisonment (operations can be substituted for blows, stabs, wounds).” [4a] (As heliacal rising star.) “ Always seeking knowledge and wanting a voice. A lifestyle which is a journey through the hills and valleys of polarities. Having to learn to live with polarities, juggling two lifestyles.” [5a.]
Pollux 23º (As above plus) “imprisonment, ephemeral honor and preferment.” [4b] (As heliacal rising star.)“Life is a journey of self-discovery through the mountains and values of one’s own soul. To be able to feel or communicate the deeps of humans emotions.” [5b]
Procyon 25º “Artful, crafty, dissembling, wealth by violence and rapine, lust, dissipation, waste and ruin, military preferment, quarrels, loss in trade or by servants.” [4c] (As heliacal rising star.) “ To discover that the solution to one’s problems is diversity; to succeed by constantly changing one’s approach to problems. To learn to keep one’s options open.” [5c]
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Cancer decan 1 the Giddy Artists & Mood Swings’ behavior will be most notable in love relationships. These folk are tres-sophisticated and have very refined tastes. Therefore they really need to be in the high-income bracket in order to afford the luxuries they so crave. Cancer 3 rising will need to marry well since the life of a bohemian artist is not usually conducive to megabucks. Unfortunately for some, like Van Gogh, they have to die first before their work sells for millions. This is the double-edged swords of the twins. As you can see from the fixed stars interpretations, this decan is not an easy sail. The wildly creative moods are very difficult for the subject to cope with unless they have a very patient and grounded partner. Cancer 3 rising is a force of nature indeed and their success really depends on the guidance of a mentor or agent who is sincere and does not want to exploit these sensitive souls great talents. Much depends on the condition of the Moon (The AC ruler) in the chart, this decan’s volatility would be mitigated by (for example) an exalted Moon in Taurus.
