Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for December 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Your astrology is fully engaged this month, as Jupiter launches a journey clear across the professional and vocational angle of your solar chart. No matter how stuck or stagnant things have seemed the past year or two, you will feel the ground start to vibrate and your energy start to rise. Here is the thing: you must think big — but not too big. Scale or reach in pure numbers is far less important than having contact with the right people, which means those who are interested in what you do. For that to happen, use specific rather than general goals. Maintain a high focus on the quality of your work product, and then place it where people with an interest can find both it and you. In the haze of the internet, we have almost forgotten the importance of making your presence known in person rather than as a digital mirage in some form. Get your body out the door. For this purpose, the specificity of audience matters less than on the internet. You can meet anyone anywhere, so therefore look and feel your best and don’t hesitate to crash the Hyacinth Growers of America Conference if it happens to be in a hotel where you’re staying. Walk up to anyone you feel like saying hello to and strike up a conversation. The random factor works best for you when you are present in the room and can make eye contact and share a cup of coffee. Many unseen forces are working in your favor. Stay close to your intuitive guidance, which means taking the little hints whether to turn left or right when you have no place special to be.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for November 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Those born under the Cancer Sun or rising are especially sensitive to eclipses. The Moon has unusual power during these times, and the eclipse process marks intervals of significant change and progress. The recent solar eclipse in Scorpio is urging you to honor the creative, sexual and pleasure-seeking side of your nature. This is what’s called a 5th house event: there will be no gains without taking some risks. The corresponding lunar eclipse on Nov. 8 will push you to take a bold approach to your social existence. You are something of a homebody who can go for long periods of time without much ‘public’ interaction with others (meaning parties, going out, or taking day trips), though you’re being called to a new kind of leadership here. This will start with leading yourself out the door and into places that are new and unfamiliar, or where you have not been since (perchance) 2019 or so. All of the crisis that society has been through has lowered your expectations of life, and it’s time to ask for more from your existence. Do not let your fears (or those of others) get the best of you, or even influence you. There are a lot of paranoid people who were wrong the first time, and many still haven’t gotten it right. Dare to experiment and find out for yourself.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for October 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — With the transition of the centaur Asbolus into your sign, it’s essential that you always follow your intuition. All of the centaurs (strange, slow-moving worlds in the spirit of Chiron) pertain to a healing process of some kind. There is always a challenge; an initiation. What people describe as intuition is an inner sense, and the overwhelming nature of the digital environment has taken most of us way outside of ourselves. This is added to the prior situation with intuition — most people cannot distinguish it from fear. Usually, this is something learned in hindsight. People learn what their intuition was when they violate it and then things don’t go so well. The feeling they pushed through was not fear. It was something else — a kind of hankering, or signal from within to stop. In order to follow your intuition, you need to know what it feels like, and to understand its messages. It’s part of a guidance system that is speaking to you all the time, and helping arrange your circumstances and the path through them. With Mars turning to retrograde motion in the most sensitive area of your solar chart, it will be essential that you understand the role of fear in your consciousness. Mars is going to show you “the other side” of something about yourself, and you will need to determine whether it’s really true. In the widest sense, the Mars retrograde process (which lasts through late March 2023) is about emerging fully and irrevocably from any form of denial to which you may have succumbed at any time in the past or present. This is another way of saying that the purpose of this transit is learning how to be real with yourself. That is a tall order in the current state of the world, though your incentive is that nothing else will ever work for you. And this you know.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for September 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — The thing lost in the digital revolution of the past 25 years — and the core of the spiritual crisis we face — is the inner life, and inner awareness. I write these words and I know that a great many people don’t even grasp what I’m describing. Many who are young have never been introduced to the experience (with the result being a wide variety of body dysphorias, depression, and a black hole of self-esteem). Many older people remember the time before this all happened, but may not recall what a quiet afternoon alone with oneself is. To grow, to keep your sanity and to feel good, your whole life would ideally become a quiet afternoon. With children, jobs, devices and all the incessant shuttling we so often do, that would seem to be impossible. But perhaps consider whether those things, by design, prevent us from being within ourselves. And that is the quality of existence I suggest you subvert over the next seven months of Mars moving through your 12th house of inner space. The theme of this transit is about facing your fears, your inner conflict, and any sense of emptiness that may remain in your life. This time in your life is about doing the real spiritual work, which for you may have been a profound calling when you were younger. This is not about “diving in” as much as it is gradually habituating yourself to honor your inner reality, your needs, and your senses. Seek wisdom from places where you’ve dependably found it in the past — and then grow from there. As you do this, you are likely to seek a reorientation of your relationships. Those have been going through a kind of clearing, which means a gaining of clarity, and an opening of space. Simplify, and focus on clearing up any situation where people seem to have power over you.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for August 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Practice your social skills and spend as much time outside your dwelling as you can. Take every opportunity to socialize, particularly in small groups where a real conversation is possible. As the month develops, you may be drawn back into yourself, and seek an unusual degree of privacy and seclusion. That may serve you in some ways, though not in all. Remember how important the companionship of others is, and do what you can for that to stay front and center of your life.

You are someone who is capable of a deep inner life, and that is something you want to cultivate. Yet ‘inner’ has no meaning without ‘outer’, and both are necessary. This is especially true in the areas of your life associated with your mission, with business and with cash flow. You can make up plenty of lost ground and lost time in the coming months, though that requires your involvement in community life. Make a point of focusing on both the social and the monetary value of whatever you offer. You have the power to sustain yourself doing something that is good for everyone, and now is the time to root that solidly in the world, and in your daily routines.

As for the inner side of your nature — the next six or seven months will be a time of making peace with yourself. That means a process of reconciling the different facets of your inner nature. The easiest way to do this will be working with your fears and self-judgments. You have the assignment of sorting out what is true and what is not. When a question seems to be of a spiritual sort, audit the facts involved. Everything must be subjected to the same standard for truth. Recognize opinions for what they are, and then investigate.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for July 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — This week’s New Moon in your birth sign or rising sign is providing you with plenty of energy and a refreshed sense of direction, meaning and purpose. And if you have not noticed that yet, perk up and pay attention. Summon your power and your self-awareness, and give yourself something ambitious to do. I reckon, however, that you are already hearing the calling. 

You are in a truly unusual moment of life when you can make a name for yourself — which coincides with a time when this is nearly impossible. But the forces of your chart can combine and work for you, if you provide some willingness, propulsion and working with the winds and the tides rather than against them. You will save power, increase your efficiency and have a more interesting journey to wherever it is you’re going.

As for your navigational guides, there is one highly dependable one that you can see with your eyes. There is another even more reliable one that you cannot see but which manifests as a pull or tug in the direction you want to go. The visual one will offer a sense of ease and opportunity. The invisible one will feel like the course of maximum challenge and achievement. The first is a kind of lure into the second. Ultimately, they will guide you the same way, if you act fairly soon. As with nearly all of the astrology of our moment, there is a convergence point in March 2023.

That is when a lot will change for a lot of people, and take nearly all of them by surprise. There’s a big storm around October/November 2022 that will blow many people off course. But you have your navigational tools, the most important of which is what, exactly, you want to achieve in this life.

By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) —  One way or another, you will aspire to do great things and stand out from everyone. However, you don’t need to do much other than what you know is the right thing for you. You don’t need any kind of maneuver, or leverage, or scheme. Rather, do what you can to be in the right place at the right time. If it is time to work, then get your work done, and stay ahead of the curve. If it’s time to socialize, then do so in your usual skillful way. Here is the thing: in all interactions, understate your case. Make light of your own achievements, and be grateful to do your small part. Give others credit for the contributions they have made. And practice what used to be called noblesse oblige — the inferred responsibility of privileged people to act with generosity toward those less privileged. That means being helpful and unassuming. Your astrology has you in a spotlight; attention is focused on you, whether you’re aware of it or not. You are being seen, and people are making decisions about you. Over that fact you have little control, though you do have influence. The very best thing you can do is be yourself, which means not putting on airs, or attempting in any way to manipulate your image. Also, get used to the fact that not everyone likes you — and that success may breed some contempt. Play that off as well; detractors are wasting their time, so do not let them waste yours. Finally, let’s talk about the confidence issue indicated by Mars in Aries. The lack of confidence can take sly forms. So ask yourself what you would do differently if you were just a little more courageous.

By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Jupiter is about to cross the sensitive midheaven angle of your chart. While Jupiter in a water sign is almost always helpful for those born under a water sign (such as yourself) you need the worldly boost that major activity in Aries can grant you. Aries, your 10th solar house, is the aspiration, reputation and professional angle of your chart. It’s not just about what you’re known for — it’s about what you want to do the most. Jupiter offers recognition and opportunity, which you will be able to leverage against one another: one step will lead to the next, and there will be the occasional moment of hitting the jackpot. Yet you must stay in the game of your own life, and remain alert to your rapidly changing circumstances. Not every loss is detrimental and not every gain is benefitial. It will help if you suspend your judgments and notice the quality of events as you experience them.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for May 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) —  The heart of the matter is spiritual. Yet this would seem to have little relevance when the affairs of the world all drive toward the appearance of success and acquisition as a means to happiness. Then there is the urgency of escaping and eluding fear, rather than addressing it. All this effort consumes most of the oxygen in our environment — the blood fuel of motivation, curiosity, and the sense of inner quest. Most of all, it blots out the delicate thing known as meaning. To have that, it’s necessary to be receptive, and to reflect. You are unlikely to get the instantly satisfying sensation of a nut screwing perfectly into a bolt. Yet you’re not a hard object, nor are you in any way definitive. Your nature is water, and water is the dominant element in the sky at the moment. Take advantage of this while it lasts: get as much quiet time as you can arrange, and as much time alone. You can stop and relax for a while, even if you think you cannot. The more you turn your awareness inward, the more you will want to continue doing so. There is a timing factor — early in the new month, watery elements become fiery ones (in particular, Jupiter and Venus, now in Pisces, enter Aries). That alone will feel like a call to action, and my suggestion is that you be inwardly prepared. Your outer world will beckon in entirely new ways, sooner than you imagine. For that to help you, it’s essential that you be in alignment with yourself.


Planet Waves Weekly for April 15, 2022, for the Libra Full Moon| Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — You may not feel like you have much control over your professional life or image at the moment, and maybe that’s just fine. The Sun has been making a streak across planets closeted in Aries, which has been chaotic, and is not necessarily giving you the results that you want. However, you are making an impression on people, you are visible, and you are being noticed. Whatever that might translate to, work with it when you find out that your reputation has preceded you in any way. Don’t be spooked by the fact that people can have such wildly diverging ideas of who you are. On some level, they are all right and they are all wrong: each contains a piece of something potentially valid, and each is a story. Work with what you have.


Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2022 — Part 2 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Now is the time to consider your long-range plans, or rather, to allow yourself to have a vision for the rest of your life. Plans are specific, and vision is more general. You don’t necessarily know how you’re going to reach that space that you see; to get there, it will be helpful if you live with what seems to be missing information. Said another way, an element of faith is involved, both in yourself and in the larger plan that is guiding you and summoning you into the future. Perhaps it’s enough that you accept that there is a future, and that it includes you. We live in despondent times; you cannot afford to fall for that trap, or to play along with the plan that is alienating so many from their involvement in their own life. The message coming from society for the past two years is: “forget it, what you want is irrelevant, and you’ll never get it anyway.” I do not agree. The masters of the economy, or of society, are not the masters of natural law, nor are they the Lords of Karma. In fact, they are subject to natural law and the Law of Karma, just like you and I — no matter what their press release says. To the extent that some human or invading entity seems to determine reality, this is largely a matter of what they convince people to believe. Therefore, be extremely careful with what you accept into your mind; and with the concept of belief, which is sketchy enough as it is. Belief cannot determine reality, but it can certainly determine your personal reality, because you are subject to what you accept as true. Keep an eye on that — particularly when considering matters of your own destiny.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Who and what is left of your relationship life has stood the tests of time, stress and endurance. More significant is what has become of your prior expectations about the ways that partnerships should be. It is fair to say that you’re a much more independent person than you ever were. In the past, you are likely to have favored deep levels of mutual involvement that hold much less interest for you now. It’s not that you’re disinterested in people — you remain curious and concerned about them. It’s just that you need a longer tether, or no tether at all, and also the freedom to choose your depth of entanglement. You are learning that you need equal involvements with a diversity of people, not just one. And most of all, as may become evident over the next few weeks, your relationships are healthier and more resilient when they get to go through transitions and come out in a new place. The lesson of the moment is that your involvements with others must be lived on your terms. This does not exclude mutual arrangements; yet to have any fulfillment or peace of mind, you must honor your own bottom lines. Of these, the first is that you are your own person. Who you are is not subject to modification or adjustment by others. I am not implying being selfish or inflexible; I mean holding your center. I mean recognizing when others have an agenda for you that does not include your point of view, and sidestepping that. At this time in your journey, your goals must be paramount in your own life. You have done your part taking on the burdens and the responsibilities of others. Honor your own dharma, and celebrate this fact when you are
reminded it’s what you are called to do. In truth, nothing else matters.


Special Edition for New Moon — March 3, 2022

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Truth is not a matter of opinion. It’s a matter of discovery, and this is rarely an easy or straightforward process. If you think you know something but that knowledge was gained effortlessly, you are probably deceived. If you find yourself confronted with uncomfortable truths that you must grapple with, and with questions that have no easy answers, you are scaling the mountain of existence. One fact keeps gleaming out of your chart, which is about Chiron in Aries in the 10th house. Your leadership and example are specifically about being different, rather than attempting to conform. This was always true for you, though there are times when you feel that all of your decisions must be put up for a vote, and you have to live with the election results. This is not true. It is prudent of you to have a process of consultation, but those who seek opinions and facts from you must have no actual power over your choice. Your life is not entirely about you, as well you know. But it starts and ends with you.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for March 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Proceed with a strategy. Adapt as needed — know where you want to go, and approximately how you plan to get there, and when you want to arrive. None of this will work out as planned, though your plans will serve as a set of references which you can use as a framework. The main idea is that you will be accomplishing your goals your way. It’s much easier to conduct oneself the usual way, following the usual rules, the first of which is to sacrifice your specific needs and desires for some seemingly greater objective. Few ask when this ends; they would not like the answer, which is never — unless, of course, you wake up and respect your own intentions. The consequences of doing so are not always positive at first. For most people, standing on their own, or standing apart, is new territory, and also feels dangerous. The sense of risk comes from two places. First is the potential impact on social bonds when you start to live your truth. Honoring your reality impacts your relationships; it tests them and guides them to a new place. You don’t need to assume that you will alienate those who are closest to you. You will, however, be guiding your association in an alternative direction by taking a different approach to your life. You have done plenty of this for people. It’s deep within your nature to adapt and be accommodating, though it may feel strange to have others do so for you. As caring as the sign Cancer is, there’s a phobia of being considered selfish or self-serving, and at times you overcompensate for that. So state your intentions, give people a moment to adapt, and seek to enlist their support and cooperation. Then do what you feel is necessary, or what you want the most. Sooner or later, the people who are truly your friends and intimates will come along. What you simply must supply for yourself is your constantly evolving vision of who you are. It will help if you actually visualize, in words and pictures. Stoke that, tend to it, feed it, and it will feed you.


Planet Waves Horoscope for February 3, 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — You have a front-row seat for the spiraling insanity of the world — and all that is emerging from the chaos and the unknown. I am sure you would prefer front row to the Rolling Stones, Billie Eilish or Adele, but take what you can get. Most of the stark raving drama of our moment is being acted out in Capricorn, which is right across the dial from you (and they are really feeling it in ways that are tangible). This represents what you see, and also the environment in which you exist. It can represent your relationships: the feelings of others require special care right now. As for the world outside your own front door: on one level you’re a witness, and yet it’s easy to get drawn in; we are all part of the same drama being acted out on the same stage. Your role is different. You are being called to take leadership. That can have a variety of expressions, though think of it as making chicken (or miso) soup for someone who is not feeling well. Leadership today means taking care of others, and organizing approaches to scaling the effort. As one born under the sign Cancer, this is your birthright; having Chiron transiting your vocational angle is saying that now is the time to step into your role as one who assists during a time of crisis. You are not expected to do this alone, nor would that make any sense. Rather, it’s time to develop your skill of getting people together and cooperating for a specific purpose; and to the greatest extent you can, utilizing the resources of others rather than your own. You bring plenty in terms of your skills and commitment, and you will need to invest more. Therefore, part of what you need to do is spread out the workload, the financial burden and making contact with others. This could apply to a diversity of circumstances, from your strictly private affairs, to running a business to orchestrating charitable efforts. What counts is that you make sure as many people are taken care of as possible, without harming yourself. That is essential.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for February 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — In astrology there is a region called the 8th house, and it’s where other people and their priorities enter your life. For you this is the sign Aquarius. At the moment, this area is packed — in addition to Saturn, the Sun and retrograde Mercury, there are high-intensity asteroids like Damocles (famous for the sword hanging over his head) and Icarus (famous for flying so high that his wings melt). The sensation of all these points might be akin to having a rowdy audience in your most private moments. Or it could feel like the in-laws are taking over your life. Use the power of Saturn in this house to set a boundary between you and all of that, or all of them. Slow everything down as much as you can, particularly the speed at which you respond to the requests and demands of others. Then, set priorities. The main issue with Aquarius on the 8th house is thinking that everything you do is subject to a vote. You might also get the notion that it’s OK to take orders you know are immoral, or to go along with what you know is incorrect. You are being summoned to take over your own affairs, including your partnerships. It is time to assert your authority over what is rightfully yours, and nudge everyone to their side of any boundary that is supposed to protect you. Don’t worry if people grumble, give you the thumbs down, dislike or unfriend you. Your role is to make decisions based on your preferences and what you know is necessary, whether for you or for someone else where you have that authority. Everyone must stay in their lane, and it’s up to you to stand guard over that simple truth. Do this for a while and you gradually remember: this is your life.


Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for January 2022 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Cancer (June 21-July 22) —  Everything in your life is not subject to a vote by a committee. You would serve yourself well to stop acting as if it is, and make sure you understand that you are the person who makes your own decisions. It will be easier to follow your own guidance now that Jupiter has moved into water sign Pisces. This will help you find confidence and faith in your own ideas and your perception of the world — and give you something rare these days, which is the occasion to consider your long-term desires, plans and goals. You may discover over the next few months that your perceptions were correct, relating to important matters far greater than yourself or your personal life. Make sure you don’t come off as being right all the time; rather, stand firm on your privilege of choosing what is right for you. While it’s likely that others will still try to impose their opinions or their will on you, it will not be as easy as it’s been at various times over the past year. That’s because you won’t be so susceptible to the propaganda of people who want to dominate your affairs. The fact that anyone may try does not indicate that they are entitled to do so, or even entitled to an opinion. You are skilled at taking into account the views of others, and that is quite enough. You will be doing plenty of that this month as the activity heats up (even more) in your relationship angle, Capricorn. You must hold people to a measure of decorum and respect, and you may find yourself reminding partners to speak in inside voices. No matter how confident others may seem, they are not as sure of themselves as they claim. Therefore, when you must, patiently extract the salient facts from them, and (once again) make up your own mind about what is true and what is not.

  1. Wow! Mind-blowing March horoscope! Yes, the winds are of change are blowing, not very comfortable, but also so liberating to have a bit of an ‘eff you’ coming in towards some people, instead of that endless and tiring trying to be liked and to please everyone – might free up some important energy at last. Thank you and bless you, dear Eric <3

  2. Not an easy task for this crab, though we are supposed to be good at sidestepping – ha ha! This relationship stuff is hitting hard again right now, so was amazing to read this horoscope – growing pains are always hard. “Honor your own dharma, and celebrate this fact when you are reminded it’s what you are called to do. In truth, nothing else matters.” Yes. work in progress, as always. Bless you and thank you dearest Eric – and dearest Lanvi for your illustrations, exquisite and truly mindblowing. xxxxxxxx
