An Open Letter To Cancer For March 2022
I can only shudder when I think about what has happened to some of my Cancerian friends. Most of you are remarkably resilient, and the “slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune” pounce off you like water off a duck's back. However, some of you are not so fortunate. Consequently, many of you yearn for a fresh start, or, just want to feel loved and wanted. It's natural. It's normal. The average Cancer has so much love and affection to give that it is beyond the comprehension of most people to assimilate. Furthermore, the Cancer born possess the special strengths of compassion and tolerance. That puts these gentle soul at a distinct disadvantage in this largely uncaring and unsympathetic world. In addition, many of the people Cancer meet are only too eager to exploit Cancer's compassion for their own selfish ends.
Would I be correct in assuming that you are one of the many Cancer born who have put their trust into the hands of one such selfish person? As a result, you've had your heart trodden underfoot. (There again, the exploitation might have been financial. But it all hurts.) If this is the case, I can only hope that you have resolved to try again. I say this because you are the salt of the earth. Please believe me when I say the world would be a better place if it was inhabited by more people like you. You are among the best of the best. Remember that just because you made the wrong call in the past, it doesn't mean you are going to miscalculate again. It's never too late to try again!
Please be kind to yourself. We all make mistakes. You are not alone. Furthermore, tomorrow is a new day and a fresh start. Let the past go. It might be hard but try to direct your thoughts to the future. Remember, “the past is dead, only the future is real”. I'd like you to think of yourself as an artist presented with a blank canvas to work on. Grab this opportunity to do as you please because – essentially – you are your own master. There are no limits to your creativity and cunning. Look within yourself and play to your strengths. You really are better than you know. Let the years of negativity and self-doubt fall from your weary shoulders. Have you made your mind up to start again? Then let us stand – metaphorically – side by side and contemplate the Universe in all its glory. Indeed, let us stand together and look to the stars in the hope of receiving some heavenly guidance.
Jupiter, the Greater Benefic, brings hope and optimism into your life. You are on a huge learning curve, and your attendance at the school of hard knocks has taught you some essential lessons. In addition, Venus, Mars, and Pluto all line up in Capricorn to strengthen your commitment and enhance your innate drive, energy and well-balanced judgement. Astrally, you are not alone: you have some powerful astral energies on your side.
This is all looking very good for you. Changes and transformations can be mapped out – intellectually accommodated. However, there is a potential down-side. Neptune's sublime but frequently subversive influences must be acknowledged and certainly not ignored. Therefore, be careful to avoid the misinformation and credulity that is so often Neptune's fellow traveller. Think clever and assiduously apply the appropriate checks and balances. In short: it's all looking very good, providing you don't score any own-goals!
The Lesser Benefic's ingress into the eighth house is indicative of better times ahead in respect of some very personal issues. Not only that, but if you have money tied up in a shared venture of some kind, the ball is now in your court. Moreover, the time is right for you to have your say over how the situation develops.
Interestingly, the planet Mars will exist the Seventh House. This will further distance him from the potentially malign influence of Pluto. This bodes well for marital harmony. Those Cancer born working in close harmony with a business partner might also become aware of a less confrontational atmosphere in their working environment.
Cancer born students might be subject to some unforeseen changes. Perhaps this has something to do with your home life or parental influences. Interestingly, ecological issues and strong, independent women are powerful factors in the unfolding week. Although the impact and power of the trade union movement has long past its peak, it might still have an impact upon the lives of some Cancer born. Indeed, I wonder if your Grandparent's actions or opinions might influence your decisions this week.
You might seek to terminate a number of old friendships that have passed their sell by date in order to make new ones. Try to do this calmly. Just imaging how you would feel if a public show of emotions were to be filmed on a stranger's phone and subsequently posted on social media for the amusement of total strangers. Likewise, take care not to dominate others in a domestic setting, as this too might have adverse ramifications. Especially when negotiating legal agreements, undertaking public relations activities, or, meeting your in-laws. Worryingly, planetary aspects suggest sexual problems or jealous feeling might be experienced by a minority of Cancer born. Perhaps it's time to unburden yourself to a close friend or therapist.
Some little domestic “hiccup” might have a disproportionate financial impact upon your plans for a night out, or, even a full week of pleasure activities. Conversely, “on the other end of the yard-arm” Jupiter – the Greater Benefic – holds out the promise of good times aplenty. That's a bit of a conundrum until one considers Neptune's influences upon unfolding events. What's the solution? I suspect that one or two Cancer born are going to max-out on their credit cards and worry about the consequences latter. That's not a solution I would endorse.
Good news for ambitious Cancerians with an eye to the big time. If you are a Thespian, poet, mime artist, or, indeed a wannabe performer of any description, then things are looking good for you. This could well be your opportunity to upstage your colleagues and steal the headlines. In fact, you might attract the attention of a theatrical Angel with the power to bankroll your future. However, jealous rivals might dish the dirt to the press and do everything in their power to undermine your success.
Well, that's about it for this letter. Remember, nothing in astrology is either black or white. Astrological symbolism is always amenable to numerous subtly nuanced variations of interpretation. In the final analysis, how you chose to react in any given situation is the final deciding factor. You have free will. Please use it judicially, and do what is best for both for yourself and others (including complete strangers). Cancerians are basically gentle and compassionate people. Don't allow one stressful moment to besmirch your reputation.
Well folks, I think I'm all finished now. I wish you all the best for the future. And – as always – “God Bless and Protect!”.
