horoscope for Cancer
This is the point in the year when 2021 starts to prove itself to be a very different year to 2020, where the motion of the planets slowed right down and with even Venus and Mars both spending months in retrograde motion last year. Neither will retrograde this year and instead are speeding up and with Mercury recovering from his retrograde phase in February, the solar system is speeding up but as the planets race through the heavens, there is change and variety. So much so that towards the end of the month you will welcome a chance to spend some time in life's slow lane. This won't be caused by a retrograde phase, though Pluto's retrograde turn in your relationship sector on 28th April will open the doors to the past. Instead, the slow lane will open up when Mars returns to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart on 23rd April, to begin the wind down of your current Mars cycle. Because of Mars' retrograde phase last year this has been a particularly long cycle, finally ending when he leaves here and returns to Cancer in June. Until then, while life will continue to flow at pace, the wind down of a Mars cycle does require more time to hear yourself think and to recharge your batteries. Meanwhile, the month begins with a lot of action on the professional front, with Venus in your career sector until 15th April, the Sun until 17th April and Mercury here from 4th April to 19th April. While all three visited your career sector in 2020 and this is where Mars spent nearly seven months, due to a retrograde phase, they were never this tightly bunched. As Mars only wrapped up his longest visit in 32 years in January, this is a chance to tie up loose ends and bring things home. It is then that first Venus, then Mercury and finally the Sun will leave and return to your sector of friendship, teamwork and networking, where they will end the month.
