Cancer Career Horoscope

May 2021

by the AstroTwins

Tech treats could be on your holiday wish list this year, Cancer. With the Sun in experimental Sagittarius and your sixth house of everyday work routines until December 21 (punctuated by a total solar eclipse on December 14), get ready for a new approach to the way you work. Are there easy ways to upgrade your skills or tools? Doing so now can give you a big boost in productivity—while the eclipse can push you to make needed adjustments (hiring, firing, or delegating) to Team Crab.

Can you hand over certain tasks to a specialist, instead of overfunctioning or caretaking? If you’re moving into a whole new industry in 2021, as many people are whose jobs have been impacted by the pandemic, be willing to take on an “internship mentality”—and to factor the new, marketable skills you pick up as part of any job’s value proposition. Be on the lookout for opportunities to learn something in the short-term that you can leverage later for higher pay.

The Winter Solstice on December 21, marks a rare event—the Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in trailblazing Aquarius and your eighth house of shared resources and intimate connections. Jupiter and Saturn—so close that they’ll shine as a single bright “star” through the longest night of the year—herald a 2021 where you’ll move into a whole new approach to money that’s focused on joint ventures, long-term investments, and pooled resources.

Motivational Mars is spending its last full month in hard-charging Aries and your ambitious tenth house—where it’s been since June 27. Be careful not to burn out or overwork—but do take advantage of this energy boost, because the red planet won’t return to this part of your chart for two years after it leaves on Thursday, January 6. The Cancer full moon on December 29, could bring a bolt of inspiration. Make your resolutions today!
