Cancer 2021

2021 Overview

Cancer Horoscope
When looking at the main themes of any year, the rule of thumb is that you look to Saturn for where there might be challenges and to Jupiter for the opportunities. To move into 2021 with both Jupiter and Saturn in your financial sector makes this a big year for money matters and while Saturn might create challenges or you might have to take a more responsible approach to money matters, there is also the potential for financial growth and expansion. Yet just by having Saturn and Jupiter here has taken a lot of pressure off you, for it was only in the final weeks of 2020 that they both left Capricorn, your opposing sign, within three days of each other. Saturn had been in Capricorn since 2017 and Jupiter since 2019 and it might only be now that they are gone that you can feel the pressure drop.

Saturn is in your financial sector until 2023 and that makes this the start of a three year campaign to take your financial power back, meaning that there is no hurry, urgency or need to reinvent the wheel overnight. As long as you realize that Saturn is watching you and take responsibility for money matters, this is an empowering time. Jupiter on the other hand will rush through and leave on 14th May, before retrograding back for a second and more thorough review visit from 29th July to 29th December. It is where Jupiter goes to that is exciting, for he will not only return to join Neptune in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery but for the first of three visits over the course of 2021 and 2022. This is the first time that the planets of luck and dreams have met up in this adventurous part of your chart in our lifetime.

Meanwhile, you will also find that any professional pressure or urgency drops back this year but not at the expense of losing any momentum, especially on the job front. On 7th January Mars will leave your career sector, finally wrapping up a visit that began in June 2020, his longest in 32 years. You might be feeling battle weary by the time you move into the New Year but the scars will eventually heal while the spoils of war will be in safe hands. There is continuous planetary activity in your work and career sectors all year but the kind that can keep the wheels turning without the heavy demands of last year. Meanwhile, Venus will be working to make this a good year for your relationships, especially if there were challenges last year.


It was just two weeks before moving into 2021 that Saturn left your relationship sector, ending a three year relationship boot camp and just days later that Jupiter left, ending his 12 month visit. It was the fact that Jupiter and Saturn spent most of 2020 with Pluto in your relationship sector that made put the most intense focus on your relationships that you will ever see. Whatever your experience and whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, this has defined your relationships expectations moving forward. As we move into 2021 we are in the recovery period or a time when the experiences of 2020 are the foundation for what comes next. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of January in your relationship sector so the solar spotlight is always going to be on your relationships moving into the New Year.

You also begin the year with Mercury, the planet of communication here until 9th January with Venus, the planet of love returning on the same day that he leaves. That Venus returns after the Sun and Mercury, the planets that take a more objective look at your relationships and on having the communication lines open have done their thing allows her to truly begin the rebuilding phase. Venus will spend time here with Pluto, allowing the planets of love and change to put their stamp on the coming year, learning from the past but making this a new chapter. Venus will leave on 2nd February but will not only come full circle on 6th November but will then stay in your relationship sector until March 2022.

It is a retrograde turn on 20th December that will see the planet of love end the year and spend until 6th March 2022 investing everything she can into turning the challenges of the past into opportunities. Seeds for this will be sown when she moves through, from 9th January to 2nd February. Meanwhile, while there is planetary activity in your relationship sector all year the most romantically charged months of 2021 will run from Venus’ return on 11th February to Mars departure on 13th December. That’s right Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos is making his first visit to your romantic sector since 2019.


For at least a decade you have been in a reality where there were periods in each year that were more active for income or money matters, always at opposite parts of the year but never influencing the year as a whole. Because the Sun always moves through your financial sector in January and February and through your income sector in July and August and because the faster planets travel with him, these are the most active points in any year for income and money matters, though rarely at the same time. That is not what you have in 2021, with Saturn and Jupiter’s return to your financial sector in December 2020 bringing you to the start of your most powerful financial year in decades and the start of a whole new chapter.

Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion will move into and out of your financial sector this year, leaving on 14th May, retrograding back in on 29th January and then finally leaving on 29th December. Saturn, on the other hand, is here now until 2023 and it is his influence that you most need to understand. Jupiter is here to promote financial growth and expansion and throughout his time here will be looking to create financial opportunities and potential. Saturn on the other hand demands that you take responsibility, face challenges head on and show up, no matter what adversity you are facing. Yet when you play by Saturn’s rules you will find the power to move mountains if you have to. Jupiter’s path might sound easy. However, Jupiter will show you what’s possible and Saturn will give you the strength to make it happen.

This will continue throughout the year but in January and February, when the Sun, Mercury and Venus move through you have a chance to invest everything you can into getting this powerful financial year off to the right start. However, remembering that this is a journey that will continue through to 2023. It is a different story on the income front, where there is a finite period of activity and when that happens, instead of the long game that money matters are playing, this creates a short and well defined lucrative zone. The most lucrative months of 2021 will run from Mars’ return to your income sector on 12th June to the Sun’s departure on 23rd August. The epicentre is July, which could be the most lucrative month of 2021.


Starting the year with Mars in your career sector will be a mixed blessing or so it might seem to begin with. On the one hand, starting the year with Mars in your career sector means that your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit will be fuelled from the get go and while he will leave on 7th January, this will give this professional year a head start. On the other hand, normally here for just six weeks Mars has instead been here since June 2020 and chances are, you are feeling battle weary, having spent the second half of 2020 going backward and forward over the same ground. You begin 2021 with both the scars and spoils of war, with a chance to exploit the latter and heal from the other as the early weeks and months of 2021 progress.

With the Sun not returning to your career sector until 20th March, there is a chance to let things settle and play out once Mars leaves and to put more focus on work and job matters. For while you begin the year with Mars in the final days of a seven month visit to your career sector, you also begin the year with Venus in your work sector and she is fresh and full of enthusiasm. Venus was the last of the faster moving planets to reach your work sector in 2020 so is working to make up for lost time. Venus will leave on 9th January but the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment who begins the year here as well, will remain until 15th November. Juno will still be here when Venus comes full circle on 8th October, beginning this year’s most active months on the job front, which will then run through to January 2022.

At the same time that you will have Juno keeping watch over work and job matters until she is relieved of her duties later in the year and this will help you to remain committed, you also have the same on the career front. There it is the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos who will watch over career matters but like Juno, staying in the background. Meanwhile, there is a defining month on the career front that will help you exploit the full potential from Mars’ time here and set put on course for the coming year. That month runs from 20th March to 20th April and is not only the month that the Sun will spend here but that will contain both Venus and Mercury’s visit. This will be a short and compressed month that could unleash all the treasures that have been piling up from last year.
