Overview of 2021 Astrological events that are vital for the fate of the Zodiac sign Cancer during the course of the White Metal Ox Year
2020 was all about cutting you down to size a bit, Cancer. Frankly, you needed to be taken down a peg and the stars were making sure you were. Nothing horrible: just a bit of humbling from the cosmos as it showed you there was more to the universe than you. You didn’t have a big head at all. You just needed a bigger perspective to keep in mind when looking at your life. Hopefully, you learned a lot from that experience and grew as a result. No? Not so much? Well, you’re in luck, Cancer. The universe is giving you a sort of do-over. Think of 2021 as a summer school for your soul. That sounds terrible, but you get the idea. Not only do you have a chance to continue to grow and learn over the course of this year, but you’ll also be learning the tools and techniques for continual growth for your entire life. You’ve been needing these skills for a while. That’s not a criticism, it’s just an acknowledgement that self-directed growth has been difficult for you. Well, now school is in session.
January is the perfect time for you to get what you need to grow for the year. It’s sort of your back to school shopping period if you like. This is when you’ll want to see where you might want to cut back on hours or spend more time. Take a close look at your job situation and see if there’s any flexibility there. You may find that this is the year in which you need to make big adjustments with your employment situation. If you don’t have the flexibility you’d like, have a talk with your boss and see what options are available to you. Maybe you can get on flextime, or maybe you can do some of your work remotely one or two days a week. And if none of these options are available, maybe it’s time for you to start looking around for somewhere else to work. January is your time to get this sorted out as best as you can, so carve out the time for it and take it seriously.
Winter has always been brutal to you, Cancer. If you’re in the colder states, you know what that’s all about and how rough it can be. Even if you’re living somewhere temperate, the shorter days wear you down over time. We know that you’re particularly sensitive to it and January and February are the real nadir of the season. Hang in there, Cancer. You’ve been a survivor so far and you’ve got celestial backup looking out for you. Saturn is shadowing you through these months and knows that you can use the support. Think of Saturn as your spotter in the gym: he’s there to make sure you’re doing the work you need to but also that you don’t accidentally hurt yourself. You’re going to keep pressing on (no pun intended), but you’re going to do so with the knowledge that the great ringed giant is looking after you.
March will bring it a brief respite in which you can start to get a handle on your financial picture. This is perfect timing, in fact, as you have some great financial waves coming your way. Were you to be a betting person, Cancer, you’d especially want to make those wagers around the 19th of March. There will be a couple of these nodal points of great benefit to you. We hesitate to say ‘luck’ as there’s no such animal: it’s all a by-product of preparation. But let’s just say there are a few days where your preparation feels especially potent. In addition to March 19th, those other days are May 2nd, August 15th, and October 30th. As always, be responsible, don’t be reckless, and gamble a bunch of money you don’t have. But a lottery ticket? Give it a shot. You’re going to have hot hands around those dates and what’s maybe more valuable than any winnings you might accumulate is the confidence those hot hands will make you feel. Nothing wrong with feeling like a winner. Enjoy it and bask in it. Then let that feeling carry over into the rest of the year.
April has always been the cruelest month, as the man says. You’re not going to be immune to that, Cancer. In fact, it’s going to take a bit of a physical toll on you. Don’t panic: it’s nothing terrible or long term, but your life is going to catch up to you a bit, forcing you to relax and maybe consider slowing down just a little bit. This is a good thing for you. You’ve been burning the candle at both ends for years now and your body is going to blow a fuse. That’s not bad, though. That’s it’s way of saying it wants what’s best for you in the long run. Listen to what your body is saying to you. There will be a very clear sign coming around the 13th of the month or so. Consider it a wake up call: a way for your body to say enough is enough. And in the wake of that, follow your doctor’s instructions. Take a load off and rest a bit. Count your blessings and stop and smell the roses.
This might sound like an odd question, Cancer, but how is your car? It’s the strangest thing to focus on, but May and June are putting out strong automotive signals (no pun intended) to you in a variety of ways. What does this mean? Well, very rarely do the stars refer so specifically to terrestrial matters like automobiles, so this seems significant. No, they aren’t spelling out the Chrysler logo or anything like that. But they do address your need to travel frequently, easily, and at your whim. This is interesting because the ability to do that is very much in keeping with your personality, Cancer.
So let’s take May and June to be your prime road trip time. The weather should be beautiful, hopefully, your car is in good shape (and if not, start making it so by March), and you have the ability to take some time to just wander the open road. Do so! Make it a point to get a little bit lost on back roads. Find one of those articles with twenty hidden gems in your state and start working your way down the list. Bring a friend who you know won’t drive you crazy and make a fun day out of it. There’s a lot that travel brings to the mind and heart and this is the scale you’ll want to pursue for maximum spiritual value.
Fall is usually a time for reflection, and you should certainly do your share of it, Cancer. But don’t just sit at home gazing at your navel. September is when you need to get to work with all the personal development you’ve done so far this year. The key activity for you then is networking. You are going to reach out to every contact you have - business or social - and make some time for each and every one of them. “But I’m exceedingly popular!”, we hear you cry. All the more reason for you to strengthen those relationships and make them more human in your mind, rather than just a list of Instagram followers. You might not have an explicit purpose in mind for this networking and that’s okay. This isn’t you using great swathes of people. No, the crucial thing here is that you are reinforcing your human connections on this planet and not just the familial ones. Why? Because none of us are getting any younger and as time marches on, you’re going to see just how important it is to be rooted in the people around us, even if they’re acquaintances. In fact, here’s an autumn assignment for you, Cancer. Go to a park around early October or so and just spend an hour or two people watching. You’re going to want to take in the great mass of humanity around you, good and bad. Odds are good you’ll come out of the experience much more empathetic to people around you and eager to find your place in the world. Then return to that networking assignment and see if you aren’t a bit more invigorated. It’s called being human.
That’s a lot of education in 2021 for you, Cancer. You will have earned the equivalent of a couple of master’s degrees. None of it is wasted, though. You’ll emerge through December so much wiser than you were before. And where will that wisdom take you? That’s for you to figure out as you survey 2022 and all ahead of you. Now you are a master of personal growth and self-direction, which means understanding that it’ll never be fully mastered. That’s the paradox of existence, Cancer, and now you’re ready to embrace it.
2021 is going to prove to be an interesting year for love and romance for you, Cancer. Think of the year as a sort of field trip. Instead of going to the local natural history museum or box factory, you’re going to be taking a year-long trip through the history of your romantic life. At the end of the trip, you’re going to have a clear (or more clear) picture of where it’s headed. Sound intriguing? Well, we hope so, because that’s what’s going to happen. Read on.
And so we begin at, well, the beginning of your romantic life in January 2021, Cancer. There will be some occurrences at this time that will remind you of your first crush. This could take a lot of forms, perhaps even re-establishing contact with that person from way back when. More likely you’ll be hit by some sort of reminder from the past that will come out of nowhere. This could be a smell in the air, a single word, or just the way the sunlight hits the trees. It’s going to trigger a Proustian flood of emotions and memories for you, instantly connecting you to your past. Sit in those memories and relish them. You don’t have to act on any of them, but you do want to soak up as much of their power as you can.
Someone specific from your past is going to reappear in March 2021. This isn’t necessarily an old flame, but this person will remind a lot that you once loved but gave up. Sounds heavy, we know. This trip down memory lane is going to do you a lot of good, but perhaps more importantly is what they do now. They will introduce you to some newer people that will eventually connect you to some potential love interests. We know that sounds like a complicated game of telephone, but that’s the way love goes sometimes, Cancer. Keep your mind open to everyone you’re introduced to in March and April. There will be some major sparks that occur around this time.
The love of your family is going to be the most crucial one you deal with in the autumn. There will be demands on all sides for your time and attention then. Nothing terrible is happening, but lots of concern and stress mean people will just want to see you. And this form of love is going to have a lasting impression on you, Cancer. It’s going to remind you more than anything of where you came from and what your roots are. Enjoy this and bask in it. This is the stuff you’ll need to hold on to as you go off into the world and meet new people (and possible romantic partners). It’s not that you’ve been away from this, but you needed a healthy reminder of it. Make sure you remain at hand for your family at least through December (but probably longer).
Don’t worry, Cancer. We aren’t expecting an oral report from you in December on What You’ve Learned. We trust that you’ll reflect on that on your own and come to your own conclusions. You’re going to cover a lot of territory in 2021 and see a lot of different aspects of love in your life. We hope this is not only a good thing for you, but that it has you counting your blessings and feeling fortunate. There are a ton of people out there who love you and that you have all varieties of love for. Thrive in that and enjoy the multitude of emotions.
The 2021 year of the Ox is going to be an odd year for you, Cancer, regarding your career. Your role model for 2021 is an unlikely one, but hear us out. It’s Captain America. Yes, that’s right: the Marvel superhero. You will emerge into this year like you’ve just awakened from a sixty-year coma. Everything will be a little weird, a little strange, but you’ll slowly adjust and find your bearings. And in doing so, you’ll become a hero and an inspiration to everyone around you. Sounds like a great story that will do a fantastic box office. Avengers assemble!
And you’re going to come out of the gate as a superhero, bursting through walls and taking on evildoers. Well, maybe not to that extreme (unless your job is, in fact, superhero. Thank you for your service.), but you are going to surprise your boss with an extreme amount of work. You’re going to be a powerhouse during this month, taking on project after project. Clear away a couple of your weekends to work extra. Don’t worry: this schedule isn’t going to last forever. You just want to have a strong start to the year and to get a feel for how much of this you’re willing to put up with.
Luckily February and March 2021 are going to have you cool down considerably. Think of this time as being like the cool-down period at the gym: you’ve busted your ass, raised your heart rate, now you’re going to walk on the treadmill for a while. Still moving , still sweating, but all at a slower pace. And during this slower pace, you’re going to look around where you work. Look at the other people, look at your boss, all of it. What do you see? Are these people you admire? Is this where you want your life to be? Are you hitting the goals you’d hoped to? Ask yourself these questions and keep a note of them. As you can imagine, you’ll be coming back to them later.
Luckily summer 2021 is when this superhero pace is going to slow down considerably. Don’t worry, you’re still be kicking asses and taking names, but you’re also going to scale yourself down a bit so you can breathe and take in your surroundings. In fact, you’re going to spend a good part of July being Captain America at a coffee shop. You’ll put the shield on the chair next to you, take your mask off, and sit with a cup of coffee watching the sunshine outside your window. The Red Skull can wait another day (or month). People are noticing what a hotshot you are by this point and you’ll have prospective employers curious about who you are. Let them wait a bit. This is your time. This is the time for you to reflect and gather yourself together. Anyone who is interested in hiring you will be interested still in a few months, so don’t feel you always have to put yourself out there. You’ve got this, Captain. Drink up.
You don’t need to hang up Captain America’s shield when December comes. The option is there for you to continue using him as a role model as you go into next year. Whatever you choose, you’ll have made substantial changes that show that you’re an employee that’s important and worth keeping around. The effects of that are not going away any time soon. Everyone needs a hero, even in the workplace. You’ve served as that hero for a while now and given inspiration to others. We thank you mightily for your service.
Money high, money low, and wherever it’s going, you’ve always been on board, Cancer. The trials and tribulations of the stock market have never really ruffled your feathers too much. You know that these things will ebb and flow. That’s a great quality to have and one you’re really going to need to rely on in this coming 2021 year, because the financial picture around you is not just going to be crooked, but sometimes broken, and often very fast-paced (just to mix a few metaphors). You’re in the perfect mode to ride those waves, but be prepared: they may get stormier than you’re used to.
And January 2021 is going to come out of the gate in high storm mode. The world’s financial picture will be angrily tossing and turning. So what can you do about it? Absolutely nothing, of course. You will ride those waves like a skilled surfer. You are accustomed to this so that’s what you should do. One difference this time, though, is that you are going to make a point to help some of those around you are *not* riding those waves with ease. We’re not suggesting you’ve been a selfish bastard in this situation before, but you’re really going to lean into helping those who can’t help themselves around you. That might mean giving to a local charity or perhaps just loaning some cash to a friend in need. This is the time period where you’re not just going to be a surfer. You’re going to be a lifeguard as well.
The good karma from that experience will benefit you greatly in the spring as financial fortunes start to look brighter. Markets are going to look much more attractive to everyone, raising the value of your nest egg even more. You’re not going to use this fact to lord over people, though. You’re going to use it to help make the world a better place. Early April 2021 is the perfect time to make some charitable donations that you’ve been putting off. Don’t worry: you don’t have to give away your fortune or donate anything that’s going to strain your finances. We’re betting you could spare a few dollars here or there and not even notice that they’re gone. Is there a particular charity that you feel doesn’t get the attention it deserves? That’s where you want to target this. This is going to pay off for you in interesting ways by August. While giving to charity for the sake of being seen is not a great motivation, the fact is: people ARE going to notice what you’ve done and think very highly of you.
September is going to be a period of relative calm for your money, Cancer. Use this time to take stock (no pun intended) of your finances and keep an eye out for possible money-making opportunities that you hadn’t considered before. Does a friend have a small business? A stock tip that seems perfect? These are the things to keep your eyes out for and to bolster up. You have the breathing room for this, so make good use of it.
2021 is a stormy sea for many, but especially you and your money, Cancer. You’ve been an able sailor for some time, so no doubt that won’t phase you too much. We’re guessing you usually don’t lean into that quality within yourself. That’s a change that will do you a lot of good not just this year, but for many years to come. Money is always going to ebb and flow. The best of us (read: you) just know to ride those waves and persevere.
It’s time for a bit of a wake-up call, Cancer. You’ve been in a pretty steady mode of living for many years now and you’ve gotten entrenched in your habits. Sure, maybe you exercise a bit here and there, but are you really doing all you can? Odds are good the answer is no. Well, that’s going to change with 2021. You’re going to be taking the bull by the horns and taking control of your fitness. That metaphor is especially apt, Cancer, because you’re going to enlist the help of your good friend Taurus for this. How? Read on.
January is when you’re going to begin a new fitness plan. If you’re already pretty active, then you’re going to be switching it up. But if you’re not - or you’re not as active as you’d like to be - this is where it begins. You’re going to do the equivalent of a couch to 5k this month. If that sounds daunting and impossible, here’s where you’re going to enlist some help. This is when you call on Taurus as a workout buddy or coach. Don’t have a friend who is a Taurus? Then you’re going to call on that bull’s energy in the form of online workout programs to get you moving and on your way. Take your time with this and remember the way of the tortoise: slow and steady. But the important word here is steady. You’re going to need to keep it constant at least through the first week of February. In addition to Taurus, look to Uranus to be guiding you and giving you much needed support as you progress.
Spring is an easier time to be active, but it’s also easy to rest on your laurels. After all, you’ll have been very active all through a rough and grey winter. No matter, Cancer. You need to up your game even more. This is the time when some professional help can, well, help. Start looking in March for some sort of professional trainer. This could even be the staff at your local gym. What you want is an outsider that you’re paying to help keep in line and on track. Whatever and whoever you find, you need to put that plan in motion by early April, continuing it through the year (and hopefully beyond).
That’s a lot of activity. You must be exhausted by August, right? Well too bad, Cancer. You can take a short break at this time, but we’re betting that you’ve got enough momentum going by this point that there’s going to be no stopping you. Good. You’re a workout machine. All the more reason to get yourself to a doctor for a checkup at this point. The doctor will be impressed by how far you’ve come and you’ll be doing your body a favor. Some small illness will hit you in October. It will be enough to knock the wind out of your sails, but you’ll manage.
There’s nothing wrong with getting some help when we need it. That’s not going to be an easy lesson for you, Cancer, but a good one to learn, especially in relation to your health. 2021 is a time for getting all sorts of help to make sure you’re in the best health you can be, ready to proceed into the many years after. Give yourself a lot of credit for getting that help and taking the lessons you learn from it. That’s the wake-up call you’ve needed. You’ll have set up changes in your life that will serve you well for the rest of your days.
