Cancer 2020 Horoscope | Relationships Rule!

Ready for your best relationship year in over a decade? In 2020, your dynamic duos are on fire—provided you play your cards right. What will it take to open your heart? Read on…

No Crab is an island—a fact that will be proven true in your 2020 horoscope, Cancer, as planets sail through the most relationship-focused houses of your solar chart. As a highly sensitive water sign, you’re not just susceptible to picking up vibes from other people, you absorb them like a (sea) sponge! Pulling back into your shell can be a matter of self-preservation.

As the year begins, growth agent Jupiter is co-piloting through Capricorn alongside stable Saturn and transformational Pluto. With this cosmic consortium in your seventh house of committed relationships, you’ll shift into pairing mode. From project partners to long-term love matches, you’re a highly attractive force!

And with worldly Jupiter logged in to this zone, your signals will travel, drawing intriguing prospects from a wide radius. While logical Saturn ensures that you won’t stray too far from what’s sensible, seductive Pluto and daring Jupiter save you from falling into ennui. It was Cancerian Selena Gomez who crooned, “The heart wants what it wants.” In 2020, you’re more risk-tolerant when it comes to relationships, willing to take chances on partnerships that come with complex circumstances, like living in different cities, states…or countries!

Cancer 2020 Horoscope: Love and Relationships

Another reason to peek out of your shell? Throughout the year, Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto will mix and mingle, meeting up at exact degrees of Capricorn and Aquarius, where they’ll combine their formidable strengths in your intimate relationship zones (the seventh and eighth houses). These cosmic combos are extremely rare: The Saturn-Pluto meetup, which occurs on January 12, 2020, only happens every 33 to 38 years. This year’s three Jupiter-Pluto connections (on April 4, June 30 and November 12) occur every 12 years, and the “Great Conjunction” of Jupiter and Saturn this December 21 takes 20 years to repeat! Just one of these planetary power-couplings in a single year would be jaw-dropping. Having all three marks a unique moment in astrological history—even if some uncomfortable stretching is required to maximize the benefits. 

Need to set better boundaries, Cancer? Or, for the more tenderhearted among you, learn what a boundary actually is? Loving Venus will spend an extended cycle in Gemini and your sacrificial twelfth house from April 3 to August 7. Because of a retrograde from May 13 to June 25, the congenial planet will linger here four times longer than usual. Melodie Beattie’s Codependent No More could become a dog-eared, yellow-highlighted bible on your nightstand as you learn how to rein in some of your enabling ways. Do you struggle to stay centered when others are close? Learn about the four main attachment styles (Amir Levine and Rachel S.F. Heller’s Attached is a must-read) and find out if you’ve been an “anxious” attracting “avoidants,” or vice versa.

Cancer 2020 Horoscope: Career and Money

Relax, Cancer, you’ll still enjoy some sacrosanct solo moments in 2020. Two of the year’s six eclipses land in your sign, activating your first house of autonomy and individual expression. The inaugural full moon of the year, on January 10, is a Cancer lunar eclipse—an auspicious way to launch the new decade! You’ll enjoy rapid manifestation as this lunar lift corresponds to the galvanizing solar (new moon) eclipse of July 2, 2019. On June 21, the final Cancer eclipse in this two-year series pairs with a new moon. This solar eclipse is like a ribbon-cutting ceremony for your important dreams; maybe one that you’ve been developing since as far back as July 2018. But wait, there’s more! In 2020, you get a “bonus” new moon in your sign. On July 20, a second new moon in Cancer will echo the themes of the June 21 eclipse, giving you another launchpad for your one-Crab missions. 

The power of partnership extends to your career, especially between March 21 and July 1, when Saturn darts forward into Aquarius, lending gravitas to your eighth house of investments and joint ventures. The ringed taskmaster hasn’t visited this part of your chart since January 1994, but his arrival will get you serious about creating long-term wealth. The eighth house is the sexiest sector of the zodiac wheel (sharing similar qualities to Scorpio, the eighth sign). Gaining command over your finances will make you feel like one powerful vixen! But Saturn is slow-moving and deliberate so forget about turning into the Wolf of Wall Street. This spring and summer may find you focused on paying off old debts and balancing your books. When Saturn springs back into Aquarius for a longer tour, from December 17, 2020, until March 7, 2023, you’ll be ready to start playing the market and building your portfolio. And you’ll get a helping hand from fortuitous Jupiter, who joins Saturn in Aquarius from December 19, 2020, to December 29, 2021. 

Another boon for your career comes on June 27, when maximizer Mars lumbers into Aries and your tenth house of success. Normally, the red planet visits here for seven weeks every other year. But due to a biennial retrograde from September 9 to November 13, Mars lends a potent charge to your ambitions that lingers through January 6, 2021! Build as much momentum as you can between June 27 and September 9, then handle backstage developments during the reversal. You could have something awe-inspiring to launch after November 13. Is leadership calling? Mars in aggrandizing Aries calls for boldness. If you’ve earned your stripes, step forward as an expert or authority in your field before the year is through.
