Happy New Year, Cancer! The month starts off with a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on the 5th of January, and this takes place in your partnership and marriage sector Things are about to get so much more serious in your sex and love life this month, Cancer. Ground yourself during the Capricorn eclipse, because even if you look chill and mellow on the outside, internally you’ll be deeply immersed in sexual fantasies about either your current boo, the one that got away, or someone you’ve contemplated having sex with and merging with, but that you haven’t made your move on yet. The first New Moon and eclipse of 2019 will catapult you into a whole new frame of consciousness. You’re realizing that closed mouths don’t get fed, so if you’re hornier than usual and are seeking a soul-stirring sexual connection, do so between January 5th and 15th, which is the peak of the Solar Eclipse and New Moon energy. Your fantasies don’t have to remain stuck in your mind, Cancer. Be courageous and bolder.
Mars, the Planet of Action, spends all month long in Pisces, activating your career and success sector. You’ll be extra attracted to people who can support your hustle, both in and out of the bedroom. You’re in the mood to cuddle and discuss your world domination plan with your lover/crush/bae/partner, and Mars in Aries will help you feel more sexy inside and out. Previous insecurities regarding your body or sexual experiences will start to fade under this transit, and as a result you’ll be infinitely more attractive and alluring to your suitors or love interests. Just beware, because since it’s eclipse season this month and you are ruled by the Moon, you may find yourself feeling a bit restless and all over the place with this energy, so you may not be acting like yourself, and this may throw off your sexual groove. One minute you may be feeling the urge to have intense lovemaking sessions with your partner, and the next you may be seeking profound alone time and solitude to reflect on your sexual nature and the expectations you often hold your partner(s) to.
Venus, the Planet of Love, enters Sagittarius on the 7th, and you’ll feel an intense shift from the more dramatic, passionate, sensual vibes of Venus in Scorpio to the more carefree and out-there energy of Venus in Sag. Your health and wellness sector is activated by Venus in Sagittarius, so this would be a great month for a check-up with your doctor, as well as testing for STD’s, or research on birth control. Your sexual satisfaction is directly correlated to your sexual health. If you feel good in your skin, and look good, you’ll set yourself free and release all limiting beliefs about why you aren’t lovable or sexually satisfied.
When you combine Venus and Jupiter in Sag with the energy of Aquarius Season beginning on the 20th, followed by the Leo Lunar Eclipse on the 21st, you’ll end the month feeling sexually empowered. The Leo eclipse is encouraging you to know your worth and ask for exactly what you want from your partner(s). They’ll find your boldness and more magnetic energy to be incredibly sexy, and they’ll be sure to let you know how much you’re wanted and valued. Think back to what was going on in your sex life around August 11, 2018, the date of the Leo Solar Eclipse. Chances are that back then you set intentions that had to do with being more seen, heard, and celebrated in sexual interactions.
As a Cancer you’re one of the most sexual and sensual zodiac signs, but you also tend to be an empath and put other people’s needs above your own at times. You’re realizing that always satisfying another’s sexual needs, but not necessarily prioritizing your own, isn’t a form of self-love, and ultimately isn’t as sexually satisfying. This month, and this year, allow yourself to be more selfish. Put yourself at the center of your ideal orgasmic sexual experiences, and watch how your sex life transforms.
