This month is all about focus for you, Cancer. Chances are you have been committed to turning a new page in your career since the beginning of the year. With that, you haven’t had much time for anything else other than your goals. Remember to relax and take it easy every now and then. This focus will take you far, but life is not just about work, work, work. In April, you’ll be called to learn how to strike a balance between doing and being so that you can become better at listening to your own needs.
The month gets started with your ruler, the Moon, opposite your Ascendant. That is a good indicator that if you haven’t taken care of your emotional body in a while due to this tunnel vision, you’ll be getting grumpy very soon. Take a break, do something fun, and get back to work later. Being afraid of losing this focus is understandable since your mood fluctuates so often, but if you got to it once, you could do it again. The more you push yourself past your limit, the more taxing this task will become, and your thirst for success could eventually kill the joy of it altogether. There’s no need to rush things. Let patience be your guide this month.
On April 7th, Mercury will square your ascendant. This can give you the urge to converse and get out there, though, be mindful of your mental state. If you’re not feeling great, it’s best to keep some things to yourself until you’re calmer. Beware of using social interaction as a form of escapism. You tend to get too involved in other people’s lives, and while that can be a great distraction, and most often than not, you do so with the best of intentions at heart, deal with your feelings first and then help others. Avoid gossiping and overly emotional talk. Being more rational will be necessary during these first few weeks of the month.
The Aries New Moon of the 11th will be in your 10th house, so watch out for new ideas. They’ll likely come when you’re least expecting it. This will give new life to the projects you’re currently working on, or you may even find yourself finally finishing it. You know work is not done, though. This is an opportunity to take the next step and keep up the momentum. Remember to congratulate yourself for all the hard work you’re doing. Some may not think of you as a very driven person due to your more reserved nature, but you know there’s a fire burning within you. Celebrate it.
Since we’re talking about Aries energy, its ruler Mars will also be entering your 1st house on the 24th. This transit will present you with vitality and motivation to keep the energy flowing. Though, make sure you’re directing it to the right place. Too much energy can cause anxiety and aggression, and that could eventually work against you. You can turn to meditation to ground yourself and make sure you’re playing your cards right.
As Mars enters your 1st house, it will also be trine with Jupiter in your 8th house. This interaction between the two planets could be an invitation to use this newfound boost in vigor to give back to the community. Jupiter deals with our sense of abundance and faith, and it falls in the humanitarian sign of Aquarius. There it serves as a reminder to check in with those who don’t have the same privileges as you. Use this new power to inspire others to harness their own strength.
The full moon on the 26th of this month in your water relative sign Scorpio will be happening in your 5th house. This is the house of creative energy and pleasure. Take advantage of this day to forget about work for a second and enjoy the simpler things in life. This transit is also excellent for your love life, especially for those already in a committed relationship. Use the romantic moonlight to surprise your partner and turn what would be just a regular night into something special. Cancerians are known for their sensitivity and care for others, and this is just the occasion to make use of those proficiencies.
The month comes to a close with Mercury sextile Neptune in your 11th and 9th house. This interaction is all about in-depth communication and introspection. You might find yourself philosophizing with a good friend and discussing all the things that you love. It will be a fantastic way for the month to end, bringing great insight into what lies in the month ahead. It can also be an opportunity to share your ideas regarding what next moves you’ll be making in your career since that has been such a big theme for the month. It is always good to get a second opinion before making big moves, and your companions will appreciate that you value their opinions as well.
