2022 Horoscope for Cancer

By The AstroTwins

Caretaker no more! Relationships have been a prevailing theme for the past four years—and let’s be real, your entire life as a compassionate Crab. But 2022’s cosmic alignment hands you a pass to break free from obligation and unleash your rarely seen wild side. As the stars uniquely align, they help you savor the taste of true freedom. What feels like a purpose that is worthy of your life, your energy, the best hours of your day? You’re invited to spend swaths of time doing visionary work this year. Find inspiration through learning, travel (within safety confines) and journeys far out of your comfort zone. In the first quarter of 2022, you could develop an entrepreneurial idea, establish yourself as a thought leader or publish your own media.

From May through October, bountiful Jupiter soars through Aries for the time since 2011, bringing sweeping success or an entirely new professional path (perhaps both!). Your ambition is activated and your priorities become clear. Spoiler alert: they DON’T involve tending to the emotional needs of fully-grown adults. Attempting to do so is a disservice to you both—a truth that some Cancerians will recognize for the first time. Where to direct that leftover energy? Into your own soul mission, of course.

We’ve got you covered with your AstroTwins 2022 horoscope for Cancer for love, career & money, wellness, and friends & family. Read on for an exclusive excerpt from The AstroTwins’ 2022 Horoscope book!


Sexy is back for Cancers in 2022—and in a bold, head-turning way. The karmic South Node simmers in Scorpio starting January 18, green-lighting passionate PDA and erotic explorations galore. Plan nostalgic dates while Venus is retrograde January 1 to 29, or see what can be rekindled with “the one that got away.” Whenever possible, dress up and step out because you never know who you’ll meet this year.

The eclipses on May 16 and October 25 could bring enviable power couple fantasies to life. If babies are on the agenda this year, get a fertility plan in place and give it a good go in the months of these eclipses. Attached? Step out often as a pair and enjoy every photo op you can. But don’t skimp on the serious stuff. Structured Saturn is still in Aquarius and your eighth house of joint affairs all year. Get solid with your S.O. about your relationship status. Take that next step like buying property or writing your wills. Free-spirited Jupiter in Pisces brings truth, travel and transformation until May 10 and again from October 28 to December 20. Yes, you should have the talk—and how about having it in Portugal, Portland or Peru?

Career & Money

Can you make money while you sleep? Serious Saturn says, “Yes!” to passive income in 2022 as it streams through your investment-savvy eighth house. Whether you’re purchasing a rental property, learning about crypto or selling downloadable classes and products, think beyond the nine-to-five grind. But don’t rule out those corporate connections completely. Venturesome Jupiter rises into Aries and your professional tenth house from May 10 to October 28. You could land a lucrative gig, either as a contractor or hired gun. Keep the suitcase handy. You may travel for work while Jupiter is in Pisces before May 10 or from October 28 to December 20. Cancer media mavens could have a heyday. Time to write that book or start your style blog!


Good news! Vital, vibrant Jupiter is in its happy place (your ninth house) as it rolls through Pisces until May 10 and again from October 28 to December 20. Joyful movement is a must, whether you’re dancing, horseback riding, or learning how to surf. Boundless Jupiter is the god of the feast and with your sign’s love of epicurean delights, it’s a little too easy to pack on the pounds. Follow the 80/20 rule: Stick to healthy, clean eating for the majority of meals and indulge as a regular treat!

With Saturn anchored in your eighth house for one last full year, reproductive health is in the spotlight. Regulating cycles and hormone levels can lead to a more enjoyable sex life this year. When agitating Mars zooms into Gemini on August 20, you may be ready for a detox or cleanse. This seven-month cycle is ideal for deep inner work, perhaps with a shaman or craniosacral therapist.

Friends & Family

Who are the people far outside your neighborhood? Reconnect to far-flung friends and long-distance relatives in the early part of the year. You could cook up a visit or a collaborative project— both good reasons to get back in touch. Consider yourself the “crew glue” once the North Node heads into Taurus from January 18, 2022, to July 17, 2023. Find the right format for bringing some of the wonderful people you know together: book clubs, activist meetups, yoga in the park. Leave room for new recruits, who could arrive near the eclipses on April 30 and November 8. Mars heads into Gemini and your twelfth house of forgiveness for eight long months, starting August 20. With dedicated effort, you can move through a painful passage with a loved one.
