Cancer Horoscope for December 2018

Your Horoscope by Susan Miller

The full moon will occur in Cancer, one degree, on December 22 and highlight the Cancers born June 21 and 22 the most. Saturn will be close, but not too close. There will be a ten-degree separation—underscoring the difficulty of the situation and the burden your significant other appears to be carrying. Alternatively, it may be that you are carrying the brunt of the difficult situation, and although you fantasize about finding a way to leave, you cannot figure a way out, due to financial constraints (as indicated by the Sun ruling your solar second house of income). Full moons reveal truths, and at this time, you will clearly see what you need to do to satisfy your own needs.

There will be readers who are shaking their heads, saying to themselves, no, my relationship is wonderful, and in fact, you may be planning to get engaged or married, if not near December 25, then in January.

That is very possible, for Saturn in any house indicates a willingness to make a long-lasting commitment to a major life goal, such as to marriage and children. I want to make it clear that Saturn’s job is to make us mature and realistic and to be cognizant of the passage of time. Saturn can bring challenges or coax you to move forward with your life. Saturn rules time.

Saturn will bring up incidents to show you how fleeting time can be—Saturn urges us to build sturdy foundations to our lives and to think ahead. Saturn’s entire purpose is to teach us to use time well. When he is in opposition to the Sun, as you have from 2018-2020, Saturn brings up conditions not of your making to see what choices you will make. There is no predestination here—you get to choose what the coming three decades will look like for you.

If you have been dating a long time, you may feel ready to get engaged within four days of December 22, the full moon—most likely for Christmas. Others may choose New Year’s Eve, but I feel it is likely to be closer to December 22 to 25. If you do get engaged or married this month, you appear to be marrying a person older than you by a good number of years or a person who seems quite wise and mature for his or her age.
