Cancer Horoscope February 2023
All the planets are moving forward this month after last month's retrograde theme. One planet completing its journey through a key sector of your horoscope is Mercury, the planet of communication. Mercury's been in Capricorn and your relationship sector since early December 2022.
And, as Mercury runs into Pluto in Capricorn on the 10th, it's a significant month to consider which relationships and partnerships are working for you and which aren't.
You may be ready to issue an ultimatum. Or, perhaps you want to dive in deep and get to know someone better. Either way, be resolute and firm in your relationships and ensure that the balance of power doesn't tip too far in one direction.
February's a month when you're wise to get practical and pay attention to the logistics of life. This may mean dealing with money matters, perhaps linked to a legal issue. Aquarius is the star sign of the moment and rules joint finances in your horoscope. The Sun's here until the 18th and talk planet Mercury moves into Aquarius on the 11th.
On the 16th, be wary of what you're getting yourself involved in financially when there's a Sun/Saturn conjunction here. You don't want restrictions that hold you back. Alternatively, you might be ready to make a financial commitment if it works for you. It could go either way.
Plus, with big planet Jupiter in Aries and your career and vocation sector up until mid-May, consider your next steps. There's a lovely Mercury-Jupiter connection on the 18th which would be a great date to ask for a pay rise or promotion. It's a time when contracts and negotiations are foreground.
Also this month, there's a Full Moon cutting across the Leo/Aquarius axis of the zodiac and your money sectors on the 5th. Use this Full Moon to make a clear decision about money. This may mean stopping a payment or minimising expenses. Do what you know is right and feels right too.
There is a proviso, however, as both the Sun and Moon square Uranus during the Full Moon phase. Therefore, it's not a date to leap in feet first without due care and attention. Ensure that you balance your heart and head before making a major decision.
Beauty & Truth
This month potentially brings another shift in life as there's strong emphasis on your fellow water sign Pisces. The planet of relating Venus is here until the 20th and the Sun enters Pisces on the 18th. This feels creative for you and any activity that takes you beyond the everyday is recommended.
Pisces rules travel and study in your horoscope, it's about the bigger picture and lining up adventures and new experiences. If the recent retrograde phases brought uncertainty or indecision, you can now start to trust your intuition and make significant moves.
This combination suggests you'll be around other people who inspire you, especially women. Global connections feature strongly so accept invitations that move you beyond your four walls. Reach out to other people and be pro-active.
If you're a true Sun Cancer, you have a vivid imagination and this is an excellent time to learn more, be curious and soul-led. This is especially true of the New Moon in Pisces on the 20th. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings and an ideal time to sow seeds.
Plus, there's a stunning Venus-Neptune conjunction in Pisces on the 15th. This whole combination feels beautiful, spiritual and connects you with life beyond the ego. Seek divine guidance during the middle of the month
Finally, it may be important to find a way to lessen your stress levels throughout the month. You might not want to take on too much or put added pressure on yourself. The planet that represents anger Mars is moving forward again in Gemini and the most hidden sector of your horoscope.
Take care that you don't turn your anger in on yourself. If you're feeling irritated or frustrated, find a positive outlet for your emotions. Same goes for any form of negative thinking. Do whatever you can to knock it on the head and not be overly critical.
This combination indicates that you may be working behind the scenes or you're busy with a project which you're not yet ready to show the world. You're collecting your thoughts or getting ideas together. There's no rush to take things further if you choose not to. This process could continue until late March.
Instead, prioritise the work you do on yourself and take good care of you. If you enjoy reading, lose yourself in a good book. If you find that writing or journalling help you make sense of your busy mind, start a daily ritual.
Take your time when it comes to personal issues and projects. Know that it's enough that you're working towards them. If you're dealing with secrets or you don't want to hurt someone close by revealing your inner thoughts, keep matters to yourself. Make time for privacy.
