Cancers are tenacious, empathetic and sentimental dreamers limited by no boundaries when it comes to their imagination. You care very deeply about your friends, family and home. Amongst your best qualities are your persuasiveness and loyalty. As for weaknesses, at times you can be moody, clingy and insecure.
The element for Cancer is water which is associated with emotion and intuition. Those born under the sign of Cancer tend to be more introverted and are quite challenging to get to know well. You are naturally gifted at reading people and can almost always tell when something is wrong.
Career and Money:
Cancers thrive best in careers in which they can maintain creative control. When a job needs to be done you tend to roll up your sleeves and get on with it. You perform best when left alone to your own devices but can also work well with others in a team. In the workplace you are diligent, persistent, and dependable. Cancers are focused on their task and are loyal to their employers. While hardworking, you can become insecure and pessimistic if you feel unappreciated or exploited. Cancers are drawn towards nurturing or artistic work. Due to your creativity and caring nature, suitable professions include: doctor, nurse, chef, small business owner, teacher and interior decorator.
Security and a steady income are of great importance to you. You tend to stick to a handful of jobs in your lifetime and are very good at generating a good income through hard work and determination. The goal is to work, save, invest, repeat. There is great satisfaction in watching your investments slowly grow. When money is spent, it is usually on practical items such as clothing or cookware.
In relationships you are attentive, passionate, and devoted. A deep personal connection and intimate conversation keeps you interested. In the bedroom, you are a sensual and intense partner. Cancers are very in tune with their bodies, but they need to trust enough in order to let down their barriers. The most negative characteristic you possess when in a relationship is insecurity, which can lead you to become overly needy of your lover’s attention.
Cancers flow well with other water signs such as Scorpio and Pisces. Capricorns are also a good match for Cancers, as their practicality is very grounding, but they will have to be careful not to be too tough on the sensitive Crab. The least compatible signs with Cancer are Aries and Libra.
Two Cancers together can be quite compatible. These couples tend to have a strong sense of each other’s intellectual and emotional desires. The only potential glitch is the possibility of one partner becoming too possessive.
Family and Friendship
Cancers form very strong emotional connections with their family. Your family regards you as reliable, helpful, and as a caregiver. Relatives appreciate the fact that you value family traditions and always seek to preserve memories with photos and stories. At times, your family can find you hypersensitive. Cancers bond and communicate especially well with children and are often first to offer to babysit their younger relatives.
Friends think of you as trustworthy, sympathetic, and nonjudgmental; turning to you for your emotional intelligence and wise advice. At times however, you can come across as suspicious or temperamental. Those born under the sign of Cancer have a small but very intimate circle of friends. While sometimes shy amongst new people, your respectful nature quickly wins others over. Cancers are most comfortable entertaining or hosting in their own home and love providing good food and warm conversation.
Those born under the sign of Cancer tend to be more susceptible to stomach and digestive ailments. Cancers are also prone to emotional disruptions such depression and anxiety and are encouraged to seek professional assistance, if needed. Regularly hitting the gym, especially with a friend, will keep your mojo high.
Consuming a diet that contains lots of fibre and water ensures a healthy digestive system. Fruits and vegetables such as cucumbers, pumpkins, mushrooms, cabbage, and avocados are especially good for you.
Archie’s Sun in Taurus reveals a character imbued with loyalty and practicality. Of course, there will be moments when this little one will stubbornly dig his heels in and engage in a battle of wills, possibly even more so than most young children. But when it comes to displays of love and affection, Archie will be more than generous with his kisses and cuddles. The Sun in the 12th house brings a depth that lends itself to thinking about the meaning of life and spiritual topics. This could also indicate shyness, especially in childhood.
Archie’s Gemini Moon balances out his more introverted Sun sign. He’ll be viewed by others as friendly, communicative and expressive. As the Moon can represent public life, it’s strong placement in the first house speaks of a personality that will constantly be in the public eye. I wouldn’t rule out a bit of controversy either, considering his Uranus/Mercury connection. I believe this young Royal is set to break with tradition due to his Taurus placements, whilst restructuring significant elements within the royal family thanks to his Capricorn Midheaven. Also, check out his powerhouse Pluto at the zenith of his chart! Maybe 7th down the line isn’t so far after all.
Geminis are articulate, communicative and curious. As the sign of the Twins, you are multifaceted, with many strings to your bow and various talents at your disposal. You crave continuous stimulation and are always seeking new and exciting people, places and challenges. Amongst your best qualities are your adaptability, friendliness and quicksilver wit. As for weaknesses you can be superficial, a gossipmonger and most of all inconsistent.
The element for Gemini is air which connects to all aspects of the mind. Those born under the sign of Gemini are considered deep thinkers and talented problem solvers. You tend to keep yourself informed and reflect on important world issues.
Career and Money
Geminis thrive best in stimulating careers. Being a dual sign, you need variety in your workplace to keep you interested. As Geminis tend to seek out different and unique experiences, you are likely to have many different jobs in your lifetime. You are willing to learn and give almost anything a try and your positive energetic vibe motivates your co-workers. In the workplace you are eager, prepared and helpful. However, avoid the repetitive 9 to 5 grind at all costs. Scholarly work which involves research sparks your interest and you are tailor-made for a career that connects you with others. Due to your flexibility and studious nature, professions that bring out your best include acting, journalism, marketing, teaching, writing and politics.
In money management, you are often in two minds about your finances. It can be a difficult choice deciding between practicality and pleasure. Money is generally regarded as a necessary evil, which can relieve stress and provide comfort. Despite finding it hard to stick to a job, you can usually generate a good income due to your skill set. Geminis can be quite canny at saving money, especially for a goal such as a vacation or new car.
In relationships you are free-spirited, spontaneous and social. Clever conversation with good banter keeps you interested. Being a communicative lover, a bit of dirty talk really turns you on. If something is not working in the bedroom, you’ll be the first to open the conversation with your partner, to find a solution. The most negative characteristic for
Geminis in relationships is indecisiveness, which can lead to commitment problems. You express your love towards your partner with playfulness and witty flirtation.
Your fellow air signs, Libra and Aquarius, rock your world in the very best of ways. Sagittarian’s sense of fun and adventure attracts you like a moth to a flame, as the Archer understands your need for freedom and space. Pisces just frustrate the hell out of you and you are likely to break the Fish’s fragile heart.
A pair of Geminis can be quite compatible. They tend to enjoy each other’s company and remain interested through sharing their combined knowledge. Be careful however, not to become too competitive when together.
Family and Friendship
Geminis instigate family connectedness and excel at keeping in touch with their relatives. Family members value your advice and turn to you when they have problems. However, you do insist on living your own life and maintaining a large degree of independence. At worst, your sarcasm can quickly become irritating to your loved ones. Geminis communicate especially well with children, building strong bonds with their younger relations.
Friends think of you as fascinating, resourceful and original. At times, you can come across as too easily distracted and judgmental. In your wide social circle brimming with many friends and acquaintances, you are the quintessential social butterfly. You value diversity, collecting friends that vary greatly in their backgrounds and personalities. Comfortable in most social situations, your intriguing personality finds no problem making friends wherever you go
Those born under the sign of Gemini tend to be more susceptible to stiff shoulders, asthma and anxiety. Prone to stress and restlessness, you should work towards acquiring a calmness of the mind as well as physical relaxation. As you are easily bored, exercising can become tedious but partaking in an activity that challenges you such as whitewater rafting, rock climbing or mountain biking will keep you interested in addition to maintaining your fitness.
Nourish your body with a diet full of green vegetables, raw grains, and lean meat. Fish, walnuts and avocados have Omega 3 which considered a “brain food.” It is also recommended that Geminis limit caffeine intake, to improve sleeping patterns.
The most dedicated of all zodiac signs, Bulls are famed for their determination in all aspects of life. You have a keen aesthetic sense and your affectionate nature, loyalty and problem-solving abilities top your list of best qualities. As for weaknesses, you can be stubborn, self-indulgent and overly materialistic.
Earnest, honest and genuine, you are regarded as the salt of the Earth. Possessing a grounded and realistic outlook, you have both feet planted firmly on the ground and are not easily swayed by fads, passing trends or the opinions of others.
Venus, your planetary ruler, bestows you with a unique appreciation for beautiful things. Often physically attractive, you can be found working in the beauty or fashion industry. As your sign rules the throat, many Bulls are gifted with a lovely singing voice.
Career and Money:
Careers with clear set goals and structure appeal to earthy Bulls. When tasked with a specific project, you tend to become completely focused, even fixated, until the job is seen through to satisfactory completion. As you value life’s little luxuries, being well remunerated for your hard work is vital. In the workplace you are thoughtful, dedicated and consistent. However, in an unfulfilling job, you can become lazy, arrogant and stuck.
When it comes to money management, you are well organised with your finances. Bills tend to be paid on time, whenever possible. Spending extra cash on pampering treatments such a day spa, quality cosmetics or fine dining motivates you to grow your money tree and increase your earning capacity.
In relationships you are patient and protective. Once a new partner has earnt your trust, you are an energetic, robust and confident lover. Sexual pleasure is paramount, having the power to make or break a relationship that otherwise ticks all of your boxes. The most negative characteristic for taken Taureans is possessiveness, so resist the urge to become too clingy. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love, you express your feelings through your thoughtfulness and devotion to you partner.
Taureans are not always compatible with one another, as two bulls can lock horns. Both stubborn personalities can lead to a stalemate, with neither one willing to back down. You vibe high with fellow earth signs such as Virgo and Capricorn, while Scorpios seduce you with their air of mystery. Avoid Aquarians. They are too emotionally cool for your warm heart and Leo’s showy style suffocates your down-to-earth nature.
Family and Friendship
Bulls are 100% dedicated to their loved ones. Your family sees you as sensible, responsible, and generous. Whilst you are gently nurturing, especially towards children, at times you can come across as strict and controlling. which can cause conflict. Family members will always turn to you for guidance as you rarely let them down.
Friends come to you when they need someone to be upfront without the sugar coating. Occasionally, a lack of tactfulness can hurt the feelings of those closest to you. However, your overall good nature draws people towards you as they know you will always have their backs and come to their defence.
More susceptible to sore throats and head colds than most, you can be stubborn when it comes to seeking treatment for your ailments. You thrive on a consistent exercise routine where you know what to expect. A physical challenge with evidence that you are improving is important to you. Using a fitness tracker app or a fitbit can help you keep track of your progress.
Given that an expanding waistline often plagues Bulls, counterbalance your love for rich comfort foods with extra servings of fresh fruits, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates.
Your fierce independence marches to the beat of your own drum as you are renown for your assertiveness, motivation and fearlessness. Possessing abundant energy, your mind can sometimes run into overdrive and you are at risk of pushing yourself to physical extremes. Your greatest weakness is that you are sometimes too self-involved and unaware of the feelings of others. The symbol for Aries is the combative ram, as you charge into situations until you smash down any obstacles.
Your fire element ensures personality traits such as enthusiasm, spontaneity and bravery. Always on a journey of self-discovery, you have a burning desire to explore new interests and ambitions.
Your ruling planet is Mars, named after the Roman God of War, making you unafraid of conflict. You challenge others, as well as the status quo. This warrior-like nature makes you courageous, but you can also be ruthless with a take no prisoners attitude. At times you will need to demonstrate a little self-control and discipline, so choose your battles carefully.
Career and Money:
In your career you are an asset, tending to pioneer new ideas and concepts. You are a natural leader and feel more comfortable giving directions rather than following them. Your magnetic personality often encourages others to follow you, impressed by your high-octane energy and determination. Possessing a low tolerance for boredom can make it hard for you to complete what you started. You strive for success but if it is not immediate you tend to lose interest and move on to something else. This means you may change career paths often, but your adaptability guarantees a smooth transition.
Your high degree of confidence attracts monetary rewards for your efforts and as a consequence, you are well remunerated for your work. However, when starting a new job your impatience may cause you to expect a boss’ salary on an apprentice’s experience.
In relationships you are passionate, wild and headstrong. The faint of heart may struggle to keep up with you. In the bedroom you are adventurous and brutally honest about your sexual needs. You demand equality and will not tolerate being talked down to. Lovers admire your straightforwardness and passion. However, you can be self-absorbed, vain and even volatile. You are unlikely to ever admit when you are wrong. But somehow, you can always charm your way back into your lover’s heart with your clever and satirical sense of humor and sexual confidence.
You are most compatible with your fire sign tribe. Leos, Sagittarians and fellow Rams vibe with the same intensity of passion and sexual energy as you do. Geminis intrigue you with their vivacious flirtation. But give Cancers and Capricorns a miss. They will attempt to dull your shine and that just won’t rock your world.
Family and Friendship:
You take family obligations seriously and are dependable in any situation, especially emergencies. You are loyal, helpful and encouraging towards family members, but can also be impatient with them. Capable of making your own decisions, you carve your own path.
Your outgoing nature takes the initiative in meeting new people. Although protective and generous with your friends, you can at times, be a little competitive and short tempered.
Rams are the most accident-prone sign of the zodiac and as such, are advised to slow down and pay attention when moving at their usual lightning speed. You handle intense physical exercise better than most. In fact, expending your excessive energy with a strenuous activity is an ideal way for you to manage stress, which can build up without a proper outlet.
Your sign rules the muscles, so you can be prone to inflammation or injury. Having an ice pack permanently stored in the freezer is a necessity for active Rams.
If you are born in between two zodiac signs, you may refer to yourself as ‘being born on the cusp’. But what does this actually mean and how does this effect your personality?
The Sun travels through each zodiac sign for one month, shifting from one sign to the next on a particular day each month. However, this date is not set in stone and can change by a day on either side, depending on the Sun’s movements each year. This explains why some Sun sign columns list differing dates for the same zodiac sign. The Sun can be in transition between two signs for up to 12 hours but to truly be on the cusp you would have to be born at zero degrees of a sign, which is the end point of one sign and the beginning of another.
Provided you are not born smack bang in the middle of two zodiac signs, at zero degrees, it’s best to have your birth chart calculated for your particular date and year. Your birth chart will then determine exactly which sign and degree the Sun was in on your birthday. It’s not possible to have two Sun signs but if you are born at zero degrees then you would possess a blend of both zodiac sign traits.
In astrology, your Sun sign represents your basic character, ego and how you wish to shine your light into the world. Therefore, if you were on the cusp, these themes may reflect some or all of the traits of both signs. However, its important to consider the birth chart in it’s entirety in order to accurately interpret a personality.
Those born under the sign of the Fish are often creatively gifted with a natural talent for art and music. You are the visionaries of the zodiac, dreaming about a utopian world where no pain, cruelty or ugly behaviour exists. Possessing the emotional depth and compassion of a spiritual guru, your wisdom is unsurpassed. Psychic insights come naturally to you and as a result your intuition is usually spot on. Your best qualities are your kindness, vivid imagination and your heart of gold. As for weaknesses, you can be anxious, overly sensitive and out of touch with reality.
The word Pisces comes from the Latin word for “fish” and the symbol is two fish swimming head to tail in a circle, representing the duality of nature.
Pisces is a water sign, indicating a perpetual state of fluidness, able to adapt to most situations. To others, you can come across as a deep ocean of mystery, a human enigma or a wild child with flowers in her hair.
Career and Money:
Pisceans blossom in careers that require creativity and helping other people, as you tend to be less concerned about how much money you earn and more about a career path which you find rewarding. A job that resonates with you will bring out your best efforts. However, in an unfulfilling job you can become unreliable, flaky and withdrawn. Due to your creative and compassionate nature, you may consider a career that focuses on charity or the arts.
When it comes to money you generally don’t give it too much thought as you are more focused on your aspirations, goals and dreams. At times however, you can be in two minds about money, either spending recklessly or becoming quite stingy.
In relationships you are understanding, romantic and faithful. You need to feel an authentic connection with your partner on all levels; emotional, spiritual and physical to feel completely comfortable. In the bedroom, you are a sensitive and generous lover. There is a tendency to idealise your partner which can lead to you being taken advantage of. A little assertiveness will help to overcome this.
You are most compatible with your water sign tribe. Cancer and Scorpio just get you and ache to explore the depths of your emotional landscape, much to your satisfaction. Taurus and Capricorn are also good romantic options, helping to keep you grounded. Steer clear of Geminis and Sagittarians; they will seem like they are from a different planet altogether.
Pisces are also compatible with other Fish, as they understand each other on an almost telepathic level.
Family and Friendship:
Towards your clan, you are loyal, gentle and attentive. You hate conflict and will take on the role of peacemaker during family disputes. While you are the first to lend a hand, you can sometimes find it difficult to accept help from others as you don’t want to be a burden.
Because of your empathic nature you tend to know right away if friends are having problems and you will do everything in your power to help. Too often, you will put the needs of others ahead of your own.
Fish can be prone to bouts of depression and anxiety. Although it’s not a magic bullet, exercise has been found to be an effective panacea, as it produces dopamine. Finding a fitness routine, sport or activity will help to brush away cobwebs and lift your spirits.
Pisceans have particularly sensitive (and ticklish) feet, so proper fitting shoes are essential. Dry skin brushing with natural bristles gets your glow on by activating your lymphatic system, which can become sluggish for Fish that lead a sedentary lifestyle.
Meghan Markle has announced that she is due to give birth in late April, which means that the royal baby’s star is destined to fall under the practical sign of Taurus. What can the first-time-parents expect from their little bull and how will this align with the rest of the royal family?
Ruled by Venus, Taurus is an affectionate, loving and tactile sign. This baby is sure to demand plenty of cuddles! As the royal baby matures, we can expect a practical and steadfast young person with a strong sense of values and moral responsibilities to emerge. Taurus is an earth sign and as such, loves to get out amongst nature and get their hands dirty. In fact, spending time outdoors is necessary for their wellbeing. Taureans derive great enjoyment from life’s little luxuries, with good food and sensual pleasures of the flesh topping the list. Material comforts are highly regarded, as is emotional and financial security. They have a gift for creating wealth and are adept at business. When in a committed relationship, Taureans are loyal to the core. They are dependable, trust-worthy and dedicated. But of course, every star sign has it’s pros and cons and at their worst, Bulls can be inflexible, possessive and painfully slow or stuck in their ways.
The upshot of Taurus’ fierce determination is a strong-mind with a will to match. Challenges are tackled head-on and followed through to completion.
Taurus is the most stubborn of all the zodiac signs and they can dig their heels in, just to prove a point. Despite Meghan and Harry’s best efforts, if this royal baby has different ideas there will be no use trying to change them. Megan is a Leo which does provide some challenges for a Taurus child and there are bound to be a few clashes, especially during the teenage years. However, Megan’s Leo Sun will win in the end and as Leo is the zodiac sign that rules children, she is destined to be a natural mother. Harry has his Moon in Taurus, giving him and his child an innate affinity with one another. It may feel like they share a telepathic connection, knowing what each is thinking for no apparent reason. With both his Sun and Moon in earth signs, Harry and the royal baby’s connection will be solid and it will be Harry’s advice that is sought when his son or daughter is in need of guidance.
Astrologers have long-awaited Uranus’ move into Taurus. The planet of sudden change, rebellion and liberation enters a new sign only once every 7 years and is due to renter Taurus after an 84 year absence, in March 2019.
Several members of the royal family have Taurus prominently featured in their personal birth charts; Queen Elizabeth has a Taurus Sun, Prince Phillip, Princess Diana and Prince William all have Venus in Taurus and both Prince Charles and Prince Harry share a Moon in Taurus. My feeling is that planet Uranus’ presence in Taurus will act as a catalyst for change within the royal family. Is it of no surprise then, that the royal family’s new addition will be a Taurus. Perhaps this little royal is destined to play an important part in instigating positive change on the world’s stage whilst maintaining respect for the traditions that have long been a part of our history.
A total lunar eclipse will occur during this full Moon in Leo. An eclipse can be a portal for change, so if you find yourself stuck in some area of your life or clinging onto your comfort zone when you know you should be letting go in order to evolve, step into your rightful destiny or move into bold new territory, this full Moon eclipse might be the very thing that you need to launch yourself forward.
The catch is that an eclipse is not an ideal time to start something new. The right balance lies in allowing the changes to occur without taking action until the cosmic dust of the eclipse settles. Give it at least two weeks. Then, you can confidently stride forward in the new direction that the eclipse has laid out for you.
For those with a strong Leo placement in their birth charts such as a Leo Sun, Moon or Ascendant, this eclipse also speaks of the importance of following your heart-song. Honour your heart’s desires to manifest joy and align you with your true purpose. Used with proper intent, this full Moon can also serve to balance and heal your heart chakra.
When astrologers are unable to calculate a birth chart with an accurate time of birth, 12:00 noon is used. However, there are certain factors in the chart that can not be determined. The Moon is one of these factors, especially if it is at the beginning or the end of a zodiac sign. Depending on her time of birth, Melania’s Moon is in either Sagittarius or Capricorn but my guess is in favour of Sagittarius, which I’ll explain a little later.
Melania is a Taurus and being ruled by Venus, the goddess of beauty and seduction, it’s not surprising that she has made a fortune from her looks as a fashion model (Taurus also rules money, by the way).
Of course, Melania is President Donald Trump’s wife and the pair do share some profound astrological connections. Firstly, Melania’s stellium in Taurus culminates at the zenith of Donald’s chart, indicating that she plays an integral role in his public life. She may also have more to say behind the scenes than most would believe, with her natal Mercury heading the pack. Additionally, Melania’s Mars (drive, sexuality, motivation) meets up with Donald’s Ascendant (personality, image and how he presents himself to the world). If two angles, in this case the Ascendant and Midheaven, are activated by both players, it reveals a significant attraction and fated roles to play in each other’s lives; both pushing each other to fulfil their destinies, especially in terms of their public personas.
As previously mentioned, I suspect that Melania was born earlier in the day, giving her a Sagittarian Moon rather than a Capricorn Moon because this would place both Donald and Melania’s Moons in the same zodiac sign, indicating a mutual understanding of their emotional make-up, similar expressions of feeling and the foreign connections they experience together as President and First Lady. Of course, Melania herself is the second First Lady to be born outside the United States, again marking the international qualities of a Sagittarian Moon.
