Expansion time! You love security and stability, so be brave. It’s not only necessary, it’s better. Following an unbearable situation which you simply couldn’t bear any longer, you realize: You are free. Andre Gide, Moon in Cancer, wrote: One does not discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.
Go for the unexplored, the unopened presents. You are leaving a familiar shore, yes, but this may well have been the dire shore of Dunkirk. For you didn’t know how much longer you could have survived it.
Being a careful crab, you have back up plans, but in the absence of any, it’s OKAY. You can fall back on protective Jupiter in your fifth house. You have important decisions to make in terms of your new life path. BREATHE, dear Cancer, and trust that you will make the right ones. The best ones.
Be prepared to take risks here because they will pay off in this case.
For in your ninth house of exploration and getting out of your rut you have:
The energy and intention of the awesome Sun
The beauty and love of Venus
The brilliant words and thought of Mercury
What you are wedded to (asteroid Juno, faithful wife of unfaithful Jupiter!)
The I-Really-Don’t-Want-To-Deal-With-This escapism of Neptune
The healing obsession of Chiron
A New Pisces Moon of Miracles on Saturday, March 17
And what all does your ninth house rule?
Exploring the new
Discovering the unknown
Leaving a familiar shore behind
Mind-expansion and education
Learning new languages, beliefs, and ways of thinking
The far away and foreign (even outer space!)
School and classes
Publishing, law, religion
Different faiths and legal systems
The ninth house is traditionally ruled by Sagittarius so its nature is expansive and huge. This is not a retiring house. Because it is winter, your body may simply be asking you for plenty of food and plenty of sleep – but your mind is a different matter.
More of you will be involved in some type of educational activity than ever before. And in trying new things. If you’ve been wondering about that yoga / astronomy / mathematics / writing / photography course, why not enroll? Now is an excellent time for this.
Feisty Mars enters Capricorn, your seventh house of relationships, the same day your new Miracle Moon appears Saturday, March 17. This makes waves with partners inevitable for the rest of the month. But it also brings you a miracle escape! Partners are extra demanding. Furthermore, Saturn creates a challenge. Watch that Mars busting in here after March 17 does not inflame the situation. How to resolve this? Other than setting sail for a new land. (Which my Cancer jet setters are definitely encouraged to do. But not all of us are able to do this.)
So…think back to the end of 1986, the beginning of 1987. What was most problematic in your life then? What was happening in these areas? If this is something you don’t want repeated, now is the time to resolve it.
Now the ninth house also rules other cultures and foreign people, so you may be exposed to different languages as well, much to your benefit.
The real challenge now, dear Cancer, is only inside yourself. And, man, is it deep in there! The floodgates holding your past and your creativity will literally burst open.
March is a fantastic month to create your secret masterpiece. Make it as weird and wonderful as you long for it to be.
But is it good for executive decisions, asking for a raise, leading a call to arms, or defeating your enemies? Absolutely not. Put those off until next month, if you can!
Cherish this month in your work space / home that you’ve slaved so hard to get together. Pressure will make you think, “Oh, did I…I forgot to do that…there’s still this to be done…” bla bla bla. Let it go. Put it way back in the freezer until next season.
When you wake up in the mornings, do something productive and efficient that will make you proud. Clear your desk, light a candle, read a new book, catch up on your paperwork, begin a gentle cleanse; any of these will produce extraordinarily lucky long term results.
Also, finalize your plans. That’s when you know it’s time to relax.
Life has been a struggle for Cancers lately. You are about to see this lift!
Pleasure. You need some now.
As March continues, with so many sparkling invitations coming your way, you’ll be forgiven for wanting to plunge in and enjoy yourself. After Mercury and Venus move into your tenth career house March 6, your feeling of power and success in the world increases. I do also see an exciting opportunity at a distance. Important life path and career decisions are best made the second week of March, before Mercury goes retrograde in your professional house on Sunday, March 23.
Just remember that when it comes to matters of sex, your thinking this month will NOT be the clearest.
You have the seductive enchantment of Neptune casting a spell over you, and mischievous Uranus swaying you this way and that as March gets underway.
You may get passionate about something or someone that makes absolutely no sense for you politically.
Enjoy the movie, but remember it may just be a movie! (Neptune rules film and mirages!) But you can ENJOY.
Remember that your real fortune for the next year is what you have learned and what you know from the past, and in your powers of self-care and self-expression.
Which are extraordinary. (As if you didn’t know.)
And, by the way, what happened to that great masterpiece you were going to unleash onto the world?
I know that family and home concerns have taken up more of your time lately, but you are soon to get back to your creativity full-time, so prepare accordingly.
Finally, no needless squabbles, stop pushing yourself so hard, allow for day-dreaming, self-indulgent melancholy days, and you will most probably have the most rewarding March ever!
I think it is time for your own private session.
