Cancer Monthly Horoscope for September 2020
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — For you, Mars retrograde in Aries is about asserting your privilege of what you want to accomplish, and your unique ability to do so. Your work is more important to you than you may recognize. You do not respond to a job; you respond to having a mission, and by all indications, you do have one. Over the next couple of months as Mars works its way backward in time and space, you will have the opportunity to retrieve many gifts and abilities that you may have left behind. This includes reviving contacts with people you worked with in the past, where you will be in a leadership position. This is helping you fully claim the calling of Chiron in Aries (2018-2027), your house of responsibility and personal authority. This has the potential to be a bona fide period of achievement in your life, though you can think of Mars retrograde as basic training for the next seven years. Impeccability is the order of the day. Others are looking to you for both instruction and example, and your actions will always set the tone. Your words matter, though only for the finer points of clarification, and only if they are in full alignment with how you actually live and breathe. We live in decadent times, when people seem to abuse power as if it’s the natural thing to do. You, on the other hand, must be a crystal of integrity. That is responsibility on a level few are interested in taking, which in one sense is a good thing. There won’t be much competition for the job.
Sign Description for Cancer
(June 21-July 22) — Nurturing, loving, devoted, cuddly, milky and self-centered, Cancer has it all. Your sign is not multifaceted; rather, you change like the tides, and are a little different every single day. Less polite people call you moody. What, not everyone has moods? Why do they all take things so personally? Or is it you who takes others so personally?
In any event, those born under your sign possess a certain desire for intimacy that is mingled with defensiveness about getting too close to others, and this can send a mixed message. It’s important that you have a sense of control in your relationships, but you don’t want to take that too far. You won’t respect weak people, so you may as well surround yourself with strong ones who respect your space and who feel at home in your home. It is sometimes said that the crab walks sideways, and your most important learning in this life is to be direct about what you feel and what you want, without feeling guilty about it. Your inclination is to experience your relationships in a structured way; you would have more fun if you would be more flexible. Remember that the people you love now are not as powerful as your mother was, so don’t treat them like they’re her.
Keep a Moon calendar on your desk and know the current phase and sign all the time. Cancer is one of the water signs, and is also a cardinal sign, being the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere and winter south of the equator. If you want to know more about yourself, study the position of the Moon in your chart, as well as what are called the lunar nodes. These will reveal the deeper elements of your nature, and more than any other sign, the Moon’s house, sign and aspects may reveal your most authentic nature.
