Cancer Forecast for December 2014
By Susan Miller
The universe has a wonderful surprise for you. Saturn, the tough taskmaster planet that seems to have been causing you frustration in terms of your love life, will move out of Scorpio and your fifth house of love on December 23. This is headline news, for you have been coping with Saturn since October 2012, a planet that limited your enjoyment of love, but relief is finally in sight.
Hosting Saturn in your fifth house was a bit like an astrological oxymoron. The fifth house is the place in the chart where we enjoy fun and love. The fifth house of the horoscope brings leisure activities, such as a romantic trip with your sweetheart, or tickets to an exciting concert. The fifth house is all about love, so the same house includes conception, pregnancy, and birth, and the care and nurturing of your present children as they grow. If you have several children, the fifth house will reflect your first child; the seventh house, your second child; and the ninth house your third child, and so forth.
Saturn brings delays and sacrifice, and teaches patience; you may have had problems keeping the faith until things would improve. Whether you are single or married, you likely felt Saturn's presence for all or part of the past two years that Saturn has spent in your love sector. If you are single, meeting someone new was hard to do, and if you managed to make the acquaintance of a new romantic interest, you had to be sure that the person you were talking with truly was available. Saturn likes to put up barriers, so your lover might be currently separated but not technically divorced, and once you found that out (assuming you did), you got lots of promises that soon things would change and the two of you could be together, but change never did arrive. Things like this are common when Saturn makes a rare visit to the fifth house.
Saturn often brings separations through no fault of your own, so, for example, you may have met someone who lives in another city, or travels a great deal for work. Or your love interest may have been in graduate school, with very little time to be with you. If your sweetheart was studying medicine, for example, he or she may have had to do a residency and was rarely home. Saturn brings life lessons, so you may have felt you gave too little to the relationship, or conversely, gave too much, and trusted too much. There are many different ways to learn from Saturn, but by now you likely know how Saturn asserted his influence in your life.
If you are married, you may have felt constrained by a lack of money, so life may have fallen into years of "no-frills" fun - with no time or money to go on a vacation or even out to a beautiful dinner together because babysitting would cost too much. That will change now. Saturn in the fifth house can also bring about difficulties in conception or in surrounding the birth process. If you have had problems, you no doubt consulted a fertility expert or other specialist. Now, with the move of Saturn out of your fifth house, you will have a better chance of successful pregnancy, so listen to your doctor's advice. If you feel you would like a second opinion, this would be a good time to do so. If you have son or daughter of any age that you've been concerned about, it appears you focused very strongly on your offspring over the past two years. Saturn tends to make us stop what we are doing and concentrate on the problem at hand, and while this can be hard to do, you will see gratifying results this year. You already put in the time; now you will see the fruits of your labors.
Saturn will briefly retrograde back to Scorpio for thirteen weeks this year from June 14 to September 17. It is unlikely that you will encounter any new life lessons from Saturn during that short phase, but to be safe, keep your antenna up. Once Saturn leaves on September 17, 2015, he will not be back to Scorpio until November 2041, decades from now. You are just about done! Think back to all you learned in the two years, starting October 2012, and pat yourself on the back.
Saturn never gives you a reward while you are going through his tough tutoring phase, but Saturn will always leave a gift by the door upon his exit. It's not clear if you will quickly see your reward for all your patience and hard work in matters of the heart, after December 23, or if your reward will come in the weeks after September 17. It is clear that the frustrations you've had over the past two years are fading away. The situation you faced - and that must have seemed endless - is about to rapidly change and move to a better place. If you have been dating someone who has promised to get divorced so that you both can be together, and you've waited, you will want to see movement now or leave. You won't be sweet talked any longer - it's time to see progress. When it comes to your private life, you mean business, and that's when good things begin to happen.
Now let's look at the rest of the month. Early December has sweet aspects. Circle December 4, when electric, surprise-a-minute Uranus in a "trine" aspect will contact a bright, friendly Sun. (The word trine comes from the word "triangle" and is the most harmonious aspect possible in a chart). Uranus trine the Sun always produces a great day. Because your eighth house financial sector is being called into this aspect, you may hear that you are about to receive a generous sum of money, in one lump, and this news seems to come out of the blue. The money you receive will be linked to your work, so it may come in terms of a commission, royalty, or bonus, as some examples. You'll be happy.
On the same day, December 4, Venus and Jupiter will also create a trine aspect, and remarkably this will occur in your other financial house (we all have two financial houses of the horoscope - this other one rules your salary). This time, you may hear that you are due a raise. Or, if you have been negotiating a salary for a new position, this week you may find you reach accord on your salary (second house) AND your benefits package, such as for health insurance, vacation days, flex time, and so forth (eighth house). These aspects are as rare as diamonds, so make them work for you! You will love the outcome.
Wait! There's more! On the following day, December 5, Mercury, now touring your work sector (sixth house), will create a trine to Uranus in your tenth house of fame, so clearly, in December you will be batting one home run right after another. December 5 would be the day to make a presentation or sales pitch to a top client. You are likely to be articulate, authoritative, and persuasive, and with Uranus, the planet of unexpected developments, supportive to Mercury, ruling news, you may have something to celebrate soon!
You have another golden career day due to be sensational, December 20, when Mars in your commissions / loans / bonus / mortgage and scholarships and university financial aid house will send Uranus a vibration. Uranus is currently in your fame, honors, and achievement house. You seem to be stirring up a lot of interest because apparently your work has been first rate.
Uranus will give the month a spicy, fun, unexpected tone, and it will be one you will enjoy. If you noticed, Uranus will be especially social this month, meeting with lots of planets, and showering you with positive unexpected news. Uranus has been retrograde since July 21, but will turn direct this month on December 21. This is important news, for you will find it easier to get ahead and make a name for yourself. A retrograde planet is weak, but when it goes direct, it's strong. Watch all the days that circle December 21, for you will get a clue of what's to come.
Now let's go back up to the start of the month, to the full moon, December 6, when you may feel in need of rest. Usually, December is a strenuous, busy month for you, a time when you work very hard, perhaps because you work in a seasonal business where business gets hectic at holiday time. This year seems different and much more peaceful. If you decide to go into seclusion at the full moon, you will have the right idea. Jupiter will be friendly and in the neighborhood of that full moon (a little far, but close enough to help), so if you feel you are coming down with a cold, Jupiter will help you bounce back as long as you stop and slow down. There is no need to go to all the dinners and festivities that you will be invited to if you would rather stay home under the covers. This full moon will light your twelfth house of privacy, so give yourself the best gift - rest!
At this same full moon you may hear of a secret, or others may hear of a secret of your own. If you don't want your secret to become public, be discreet.
You will have plenty of time to lavish on your romantic partner after the new moon appears, December 21 in Capricorn 0 degrees, considered a super-powerful degree. Single Cancers who aren't dating won't feel this full moon as directly as attached Cancers, but with Saturn leaving that sticky love part of your chart that I mentioned earlier, your outlook to find love and enjoy love will be spectacular. At month's end, with five out of ten heavenly bodies in your partnership sector, you won't have full control, so let your partner make plans. Venus will be in your partnership house, an indication you will have smooth sailing together. If your birthday falls on June 21 or within four days of that date, you will find this new moon to be quite powerful for you.
If you have no romantic partner, the new moon may spark you to make a business partnership or collaboration official. The week before the new moon, on December 15, Pluto (power), based in your seventh house of marriage / partnership / commitment, will be in hard angle to Uranus. You may feel pressed by a VIP to agree to a dictate that you don't want to swallow. In business, if signing papers, you may want to wait until December 30 or 31 to provide some distance from that tough aspect.
For New Year's Eve, the transiting moon will be in Taurus, a place that is sweet for Cancer, and that suggests that your friends may invite you to a small party or that you will give one and invite them. The New Year will be chock full of welcome change, so you will want to take a moment to mark the moment and ring in 2015.
Keep your health strong, as you have been very busy. The full moon, December 6, will appear in the most private part of your chart, indicating you'll want to be with a few close friends and family at holiday time. Rather than stretch yourself thin attending all the events you're invited to, there is no harm in begging off several social obligations to preserve your strength.
In the background of the festivities for the holidays, you will be gratified to see your career, income, and reputation rising steadily. The first indication that you are doing well will arrive December 4 when your professional performance will bring strong praise and better-than-anticipated results. Clients and management will be impressed. Your stock is on the rise, and you will be able to command generous fees soon - that will be apparent on December 12, and a possible hefty bonus may be in the offing on December 4 or December 20. Being successful doesn't mean your professional life will always be sunny and smooth, however. You'll be a target for competitors who will view you as the person to beat, but you will know how to deal with them and stay one step ahead.
As the month winds down and the holidays approach, the new moon of December 21 will create a special closeness with your one-and-only. Saturn in Scorpio may have created time away from one another that you had no control over. Saturn may have necessitated a long-distance relationship, or if you were in the same city, your partner may have had to work very long hours and you might have felt your time together was few and far between. Now Saturn will move out of your love sector, and you will find earlier obstacles disappear. Saturn will retrograde back into your love sector from June 14 to September 17, 2015, but after that, Saturn will be gone for several decades. You will not miss Saturn!
If you dating seriously, the last ten days of December may bring on a plan to join forces with a business partner, or in your private life, an engagement or a wedding. Love planet Venus will be in your marriage house, so whether married or dating, you will only have eyes for your partner. It's a time to dream and make big plans together.
Dates to Note: CANCER
Most important dates for love, meetings, or actions Cancer: 3, 4, 5, 7, 11, 12, 13, 17, 18, 20, 26, 30, and 31.
On December 4, the Sun's talks with Uranus create the right environment for you to make positive changes to both your everyday work life and long-term career goals. If you have the courage to do this, you will benefit from this planetary alignment.
The full moon on December 6 in Gemini highlights projects that you are trying to bring into fruition. It seems to be not quite yet ready to show, but will by next month's full moon, when you will receive the applause you deserve.
Venus will enter Capricorn and your relationship sector on December 10, to stay until January 3, in time to have a loving holiday.
New moon in Capricorn on December 21 will allow you to break new ground in a love or business relationship. If you want to bring your relationship to a new level of commitment, now is the time to do it.
Now that Saturn is moving out of your true love sector on December 23, your love life will improve dramatically. Saturn has been testing your determination to stay together for two years. If you have had problems with conception, you may have new reason for hope now.
Do not travel on December 24, when Mercury will be at odds with Uranus. You are apt to encounter delays from bad weather, bringing on tension and frustration. Allow more time than you think you need to get to your destination by leaving a day or two early.
New Year's Eve will be fun for you as the transiting moon will be in Taurus. Gather together a few close friends and plan a way to ring in the coming year in style.

Since December 14, 1995, 19 Years on the Internet!
I am very excited to see Astrology Zone reach her 19th anniversary!
I have learned so much since 1995, the year I started, and with each passing year I enjoy writing for you more and more.
This past year has been a big challenge for me due to my health condition,
but you stayed with me, and your steadfast encouragement helped me get well.
2015 promises to be a bigger and better year than 2014; that's good news for you.
Before I got sick, I had many surprises in the pipeline for you.
Next month I will be able to show you some of those projects that I kept moving forward,
despite my illness.
My progress was due to the kindness, and help of my partners.
The first project I was working on in January 2014, you may already know about:
It involved replacing my old apps (started in 2003) and introducing two brand new ones.
The world had changed, and it was time to write new code.
My new apps were announced in last September, one for iPhone and another for Android/Samsung. If you didn't get yours yet, they are free and you can download them now in iTunes or Google Play. All the early bugs that showed up in the iPhone app are fixed, and both the iPhone and Android/Samsung apps run flawlessly.
The graphics of my new, redesigned apps are beautiful. Happily, both new apps will resize to fit all your devices. Please check system requirements.
Once inside the app on your smart phone, you will have the option of subscribing to my longer content for $4.99 for one month or $12.99 for three months - you have overwhelmingly chose to subscribe for the third option, the yearly $49.95 subscription.
If you don't have a smart phone or if you live overseas, you can still subscribe to the same content that I write for iPhone, Android, and Samsung.

Check Out the Star Map Collection by Sequin
Last March, when I was still well, I was invited by Sequin executive women to look at an idea their talented New York City Sequin Design Studio had for a collection of pendants with an astrological theme. I immediately fell in love with the various astrological pendants, and they asked me to check to make sure all the designs and keyword descriptions of the signs to be used on their site were astrologically correct. I made a few changes to the keywords, but my involvement was very minimal. (Everyone, it seems, at Sequin reads Astrology Zone!) I love the quality of these beautiful pieces. Many girls layer several of these necklaces, using various lengths, and that's a great look too.
The pendants are all made in America and handcrafted by artisans using material components from around the world, and are so well priced that I feel they will fly out of their inventory. These necklaces are gorgeous. They are made of 22K gold-plated brass with antique finish and crystal details. I was impressed with the lovely chain that the pendants come with too, as it is tangle-proof and delicately made to look beautiful when worn. Whenever I wear my necklaces, I get so many compliments.
These necklaces make great gifts, and also would be a beautiful addition to your accessory wardrobe. I quickly chose those necklaces as part of my favorite things to give for holiday gifts, or for a friend's birthday. Imagine how surprised I was that Oprah had chosen this Sequin Star Map Collection as a part of her "favorite things" in her December issue! I was so happy for my new friends at Sequin and the incredible success of this new line of jewelry. It seems Oprah and I think alike!
If you order by December 15, you will get your gift by Christmas. Readers living overseas, please order by December 10 to allow extra time for shipping. Your necklace will arrive in a pretty gift box, perfect for gift giving. Remember to think ahead for upcoming birthdays and Valentine's Day - I know these necklaces are going fast!

A New and Important Book on Fashion and Style:
"365 Style" by Nicky Hilton
Wow! Amazon tells me you bought SO many copies of Nicky Hilton's book in November!
I love Nicky's book too! Here is my review in case you missed it last month!
There are many books on the market on fashion and style, and I admit, I have bought many of them. In this new book, Nicky Hilton, designer, author, entrepreneur, daughter of Rick and Kathy Hilton, and sister of Paris, has created a completely original, honest, and remarkably wise book on style. It comes complete with many color photographs, and in it Nicky shows you ways you can upgrade your own fashion style from good to style icon level. The goal is to sharpen your personal style by looking within, not by copying someone else's style. Nicky gets you started by showing you some of her favorite style icons, but only to get you thinking. She gives many stories and examples from her own life, and she makes you enthusiastic about going through your own wardrobe to find ways to amp it up. The title of the book refers to Nicky's suggestion that you consider 3 aspects of your lifestyle, and choose 6 staple items of clothing and 5 essential accessories. Doing that will instantly get you a stylish starting point.
Nicky has attended all the fabulous fashion shows in New York, Paris, Milan, and more in her young years, but her advice is down to earth and certainly does not require you have a trust fund. Just the opposite, her tone is one of a best friend going through your closet and handing you advice that is at times funny but always wise. Certainly a lot of what Nicky says makes you think. In one chapter, she advises, "Always dress like you are going to meet your worst enemy" (i.e, bumping into the ex-boyfriend who betrayed you, or the mean girl in high school who made your freshman year a terror.) Nicky gives many examples of her own life and shows how running into that old boyfriend looking like a million because she had taken just a little extra time with her appearance on the way to meet girlfriends for a casual Mexican dinner gave her a happy boost during that unexpected nano-second on-the-street encounter.
With each page, you will rethink your own wardrobe and habits, and occasionally Nicky will casually toss out the very advice you needed most. When it happens, you will feel like you were hit by a thunderbolt. I enjoyed her advice about dressing for a first date, meeting his parents, and more, and all along she gives you many vignettes that allow you to see her own lifestyle. Those peeks into her own life allow you to understand why she has the authority and experience in her early thirties to write this wonderful jewel of a book.
She has advice on such things as:
- The $30 wardrobe item you can't live without.
- The one closet accessory that keeps everything organized at all times.
- Five must-have wardrobe items, all affordable.
- How to pack a suitcase like a jet-setter.
I feel you will enjoy this book and get much from it. Just click here to order your copy:
