Decan 1 Cancer May 2016

The positive influence from the April 22 Full Moon continues to bring harmony until the May 6 New Moon. The focus on love and money from late last month also continues in the first week but that is the end of your transits for May 2016.

Neptune trine your decan ends this month. In recent years it has increased your interest in spirituality and made you more compassionate, imaginative and idealistic. Those of you born from June 29 to July 1 have one more take of this transit from September 2016 to January 2017.

Venus sextile your decan from April 29 to May 8 increases your opportunities with love and money. You should be feeling more eager to show your love and affection for someone special. In social situations you can make a genuine effort to please and to share you warm feelings. You have especially good social skills now so making new friends is favored as people appreciate your friendly attitude and pleasantness.

Venus sextile Neptune from May 6 to 8 arouses your sensual and caring side. This is a good time for passionate romantic encounters. You can enjoy increased sensitivity in sexual relations with your partner, and may discover imaginative ways to increase your erotic pleasure. This is also a good time for dating as your increased magnetic allure will attract a tender and caring person, quite possibly a genuine soul mate or spiritual partner.

Something else you will feel from April 28 to May 9 is the rare effect of five retrograde planets. This can make it feel like the world is slowing down, like you are living in a different dimension. Even though none of the retrograde planets are affecting your decan, they will be affecting some other planets in your birth chart. So you will still experience some strange and fated events. The same applies to the May 6 new moon and the May 21 full moon. Although not directly affecting your decan, everyone feels them to a certain extent.

Decan 2 Cancer May 2016

This is another action packed month with more transits than you can poke a stick at. It will be good though because all the transits except Pluto are very fortunate. Pluto opposite your decan this year is the reason for any ego challenges you may have been facing. It represents a struggle for power and control and can really grind away at you. You should be able to increase your power and influence when Pluto combines with the positive transits mentioned below.

Neptune trine your decan from May to August 2016 will only be felt by those of you born from June 1 to 3. This increases your interest in spirituality and makes you more compassionate, imaginative and idealistic. This transit starts for the rest of you in April 2017.

Jupiter sextile your decan from February 20 to July 27 should be a time of happiness and optimism when good things seem to come more easily. The growth which Jupiter bring not only applies to personal development and spiritually, but also materially. Jupiter rules wealth so you may have some luck here with finances and possession, growing your net worth. Good things are attracted to you!

Sun sextile your decan from April 29 to May 10 gives power of personal expression which helps in self promotion and the achievement of goals. You should be feeling confident and enthusiastic. This is an excellent time to make real progress with the things in life that mean a lot to you, work, relationships and longer term goals.

Sun trine Jupiter from May 1 to 5  is about the best of all solar transits. You should be feeling on top of the world and enjoy warm and friendly relationships with everyone. You should use your high spirits, enthusiasm and self-confidence to make the most of the good fortune associated with this transit. Opportunities can come in the form of personal, spiritual and material growth.

Sun trine Pluto from May 5 to 9 results in intense and deep experiences. Whatever your are interested in at the moment, you will be driven to research and investigate the inner working so you gain fully understanding of the topic. You will have greater power and influence over your own life, allowing for positive transformations. You can also exert this greater power and influence over the events in your life and over the people around you.

The May 6 new moon extends the influence of you Sun transit until the June 4 new moon. The best time for starting new projects is during the waxing phase of the moon which is from May 6 to the May 21 full moon.

Mercury sextile your decan from May 6 to June 4 brings positive news and positive thinking. It increases your creative thought and mental activity, energizing all communications and interactions with other people. This is likely to be a very busy period but these interactions are beneficial as you can project yourself strongly and clearly without upsetting anyone.

Mercury retrograde from April 28 to May 22 is the reason this transit lasts so long. Mercury retrograde allows you to get in touch with deeply buried memories so you can heal old wounds. Old friends may reenter your life to settle old karma and allow you to move on.

Venus sextile your decan from May 7 to 16 increases your opportunities with love and money. You should be feeling more eager to show your love and affection for someone special. In social situations you can make a genuine effort to please and to share you warm feelings.

Venus trine Jupiter from May 8 to 12 brings good cheer, optimism and plenty of love. This is one of the most looked forward to of transit and is of special interest to those seeking love. It does make you appear more attractive but also allows you to relax and express the more affectionate and welcoming side of your personality. This is obviously a great time for dating but also for mending any stressful relationships.

Sun conjunct Mercury from May 8 to 10 puts the focus on your thinking and communications, making this a very busy time mentally. Your mind is on the ball which favors lots of interactions, clearing paperwork and bills, receiving and sending letters and emails, and short trips around town. While this is generally a good time to make plans and initiate business deals, bargain, and buy and sell, Mercury retrograde suggests some extra caution when making major decisions.

Mercury trine Pluto from May 10 to 14 is ideal for asking for favors and talking people into things. Your brain is very powerful under this influence and it gives the power of penetration at the mental level. Just as you can have a profound influence on others, you may meet someone who deeply affects you through some idea, plan, or it could be the beginning of a karmic friendship or successful partnership.

Venus trine Pluto May 11 to 15 adds intensity and passion to relationships and those things which brings you joy and satisfaction. You should feel more deeply about loved ones and especially your partner. This is a good time for intimate relations due to your increased desire for love and affection. You will enjoy a mysterious type of sexual attractiveness with a strong karmic pull, increasing your odds of finding new romance.

Mercury conjunct Venus from May 12 to 14 is the right time to tell someone you love them. You are in touch with what you love about a person and can more easily express this than at other times. You might also show you appreciation for someone through a gift or some other display of love. There is just as much chance that you could be on the receiving end of someones else’s love or appreciation. You could receive a compliment, letter, invitation, gift or even some money.

Mercury trine Pluto from May 28 to June 1 is your second take of this aspect in May due to Mercury retrograde. Your understanding and perception will be deep when it comes to the underworld such as drugs and crime. But your ability to deeply understand things is probably best applied to research and investigation, uncovering secrets and psychological self-analysis. A good time to understand astrology at a deeper level.

  1. Hi Jamie,
    Thank you for your excellent work. I’m born on July 3 11h32 am, 1975. Does this mean that I’m out of the woods regarding Pluto in opposition to our sign, since I’m at the beginning of the second decan? If not, when please? The last three years have been very difficult. Many thanks!

    • And by “very difficult”, I mean horrible relationship and break-up, chronic insomnia and exhaustion. I’m unable to work, just spending my days cooking and meditating, and hoping that I will get my peace of mind and sleep back. I’m learning to be patient. Thanks again!

  2. Hi Jamie, dob is july 12,1980. Financially I’ve had some issues. Anything good coming up?

  3. Thanks. My dob 19/07/87 having love issues and job stability problem’s.. Any guidness plz

    • Yes there are as you can see under Cancer decan 3. But both Mercury and Mars retrograde may cause some delays. You do have excellent stars in August 2016.

      • Thanks for your response Jamie. I’m confused as I don’t understand how there can be prospects if there are delays – seems contradictory. What sort of delays could happen? Many thanks

  4. Hi Jamie,
    I planed to change my present company,where I am working.Is that good for my career.My DOB is 10-01-1993 and my sign is cancer.Please give me a solution.

  5. I’m new to your wonderful wonderful site but with tons of planets in Cancer (7/7/54) these last few crazy years have made horoscopes somewhat depressing. Hope on the way?
