Cancer Yearly Horoscope

For the Year 2021

Overview

Welcome to a fabulous new year, Cancer! You're going to experience some massive movement in areas of your life that once felt locked into place. Your sign went through some incredible transitions in 2020 thanks to some very pointed oppositions between Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto. These major power players met in the sky throughout the year digging at your core and bringing you undeniable experiences that completely shifted your frame of mind during 2020.

As most of these alignments took place in your seventh house of Capricorn, you were being asked to see life through partnerships, and you might have created or enriched many connections as a result, whether personal, romantic, or business. Saturn's transit between the sign of the Goat and the eccentric sign of Aquarius gave you an idea of what this year is meant to teach you in regards to releasing karma and reclaiming your own sense of authority.

The dates of these momentous 2020 conjunctions included: Saturn and Pluto (January 12), Jupiter and Saturn (April 4, June 30, and November 12), and Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius (December 21). To review the nature of this energy, take a look back at old notebooks, emails, calendars, and life situations just to get an idea of the overall theme that was happening for you in order to go forward with a cleansing outlook on what 2021 really wants to bring out in you.

All in all, this is going to be quite a fruitful year for you Cancer! You're diving and trekking into areas of life that will focus you on your own intellectual needs. You may feel and be more independent than others around you, expecting proper boundaries in all relationships. Focusing on family is one of the most important things for your sign, but with the challenge of Saturn in Aquarius transiting through your eighth house, this can actually create more emotional distance. You'll feel more inclined to set out on your own, exploring the world through your own means.

Your romantic adventures will take a more circuitous route that has you contemplating love on all levels. This fundamental and philosophical approach can challenge even your long-term connections. Single Cancers could meet several significant people, especially around 2021's eclipse cycles (May 26, June 10, November 19, and December 4), which shift around the North Node in Gemini and the South Node in Sagittarius. There will be a very important Venus retrograde transit at the end of the year, which will both challenge and enlighten you to what you need on all levels. This lesson of your karma will ask you to get your affairs in order in relationships and finances.

Romance

If there is any sign just going through the absolute gestation cycle in the realm of love and romance, it's you! During 2021, all Cancers have a massive overhaul occurring in this area of your life, and this will be a source of both struggle and massive feats of success all rolled into one. Your watery sign will experience the uplifting element of air and fire through some passionate eclipse transits and intellectual connections.

In fact, this year you may only be attracted to partners focused on their own minds. Your tastes are certainly maturing! In fact, if someone isn't taking care of themselves on an emotional level, you might find them incredibly repulsive to be around. Partnerships that aren't growing from the inside out will no longer serve you, and may even completely disintegrate right before your eyes. Expect a strong focus on multi-leveled communication. Long-term couples may seek counseling to help them gain perspective on the different elements of their partnership. This isn't a year when toxic relationships will be tolerated any longer.

Career

Cancer, if there's one piece of advice to follow in your career this year, it is to be extremely loyal to yourself! Your sign is quite special in that, regardless of your age, you are an emotional parent to many. In fact, many born under the sign of the Crab may identify as an emotional empath. Due to the turbulence of 2020, many people's workplaces went through several iterations of what is now being deemed as the “new normal.” Your sign was hit with so many direct planetary oppositions that you had no choice but to evolve completely.

Well, 2021 is the year when every day might feel completely different from what happened yesterday and what will happen tomorrow. Your mind will need to arrive at quick solutions, but there will be many rewarding payoffs in the end. Take your mentors' advice to heart, and keep a tight circle around you.

The journey of the Saturn and Uranus squares will be a huge influence on your career destiny. Saturn's transit through Aquarius actually began back in March 2020 but didn't fully come around until mid-December of last year. This year, you're discovering that those seeds you planted during what everyone else called a pipe dream have actually have taken root and are now sprouting! There will be many surprises along the way.
