Cancer Monthly Horoscope
Three planets go retro in April, Gemini – Pluto, Jupiter, and Saturn. Be prepared for a wacky month full of surprises. There are some other strong influences that could alter your career path as well!
Cancer Monthly Horoscope: New Moon
April 5 – New Moon in Aries. The Moon will located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere.
The most important meaning of the New Moon is that it symbolizes new beginnings. The energy of the New Moon will make you feel motivated and inspired to achieve a goal you’ve been thinking about or to start a new project.
Cancer Monthly Horoscope: Jupiter Retrograde
April 10 — Jupiter Retrograde Begins! It is a time for spiritual introspection and reflection. Jupiter retrograde means that whatever area of growth you need to work on needs to be done, as it is holding you back. The good fortune, increased wealth and new romance that could be in your future will not come until you have done the work. Jupiter goes retrograde until August 11. It’s a time for wisdom to take over your thoughts.
April 11 – Mercury at Greatest Western Elongation. The planet Mercury reaches greatest western elongation of 27.7 degrees from the Sun. This is the best time to view Mercury since it will be at its highest point above the horizon in the morning sky. Look for the planet low in the eastern sky just before sunrise.
Mercury brings an opportunity for positive communication. Mercury is your capacity to use language and symbols, and to be a messenger to others on the importance of being open and honest, and always interact with integrity.
Cancer Monthly Horoscope: Full Pink Moon
April 19 – Full Moon in Libra. The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated. This Full Moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Pink Moon because it marked the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the first spring flowers. This Moon has also been known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Growing Moon, and the Egg Moon. Many coastal tribes called it the Full Fish Moon because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.
The Full, Pink Moon signifies an agreement of our souls uniting in the language of flowers. It is a Moon of prosperity and good fortune. Healing and feelings of protection are strong under this Moon.
April 20 – Taurus Season Begins. This is the day the Sun enters the Zodiac sign Taurus and leaves it on May 20, 2019. This time is seasonally associated with the flourish of spring, when the Earth is green and fresh. Astrologers call it a fixed sign, indicating stability, resistance to change, and the ability to ‘enjoy the people’. It is a time of indulgence and appreciation.
Cancer Monthly Horoscope: Lyrids Meteor Shower
April 22, 23 – Lyrids Meteor Shower. The Lyrids is an average shower, usually producing about 20 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by dust particles left behind by comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher, which was discovered in 1861. The shower runs annually from April 16-25. It peaks this year on the night of the 22nd and morning of the 23rd. These meteors can sometimes produce bright dust trails that last for several seconds. The Waning Gibbous Moon will block out many of the fainter meteors this year, but if you are patient you should still be able to catch a few of the brightest ones. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Lyra, but can appear anywhere in the sky.
This is the perfect time to Wish upon a Shooting Star. When beginning to observe the Lyrids Meteor Shower, close your eyes and relax. Focus on things that your heart desires the most. Pick the one that is most important to you. Stay focused on this one wish. Open your eyes and wait for the Shooting Star. State your Wish. Then thank the Divine Forces that helped you. Now live it as if it already happened!
It is believed that the act of wishing on a shooting star started during the time of Greek astronomer Ptolemy, around 127 AD to 151 AD. He wrote that sometimes the gods also got bored and curious and would occasionally peer down on earth. And in so doing, some stars slipped through the gap between the spheres and became visible as falling or shooting stars. He further added that the gods were more receptive to wishes made during times like those. Whether it is true or just a myth, tonight, look up at the sky and say, Star light, star bright, the first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight. Then enjoy the beauty of the twinkling stars above.

A Full Moon – Super Moon can be seen on March 21st. This Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated.

This Moon has also been known as the Full Crow Moon, the Full Crust Moon, the Full Sap Moon, and the Lenten Moon. This is also the last of the Super Moons for 2019. The Moon will be at its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual. Super Full Moons can make people feel really restless, as they are releasing old issues from the past that are coming up to the surface in a big way. Be kind to yourself during these transits, because these luminaries are likely to bring up a lot of heavy stuff, and our sensitive souls are going to be feeling it.

What Makes a Cancer Tick?
A Cancer has incredible perseverance and will stand up for what they believe in, but they do it quietly. They crave love and comfort from others and they are happiest when they are in a close group of people. They need constant support from family and friends, and will make wise decisions with their gathered advice. They love home life and are happiest when they are creating meals in their kitchen. Cancerians are very good cooks. Just like the crab, a cancer person hides under a defensive shell due to the fear of being hurt by others. It is difficult for a Cancer to make friends.
The Cancer sign contains people who are gifted with excellent artistic and musical skills. Unfortunately, they give up too soon when not given encouragement. Everything they do is on the basis of their emotions. Most Cancerians feel one way one minute, then sometimes totally different the next. They are very emotional and don’t understand why others don’t feel the same.
Cancer people are extremely sensitive to matters of the heart. They need love shown to them often, because without it, they harbor insecurity. Their biggest fear is rejection. They will always go the distance for a family member or friend. Cancerians are not over spenders. They are resourceful and manage their time and money well. They constantly try to blend in with their environment, not wanting to make a big splash in life.
Cancerians are most successful in a structured environment. They work best when in a career with a company that will provide a stable, secure income. They love playing musical instruments, but save this for their leisure time.
