The year ahead is best described as a ‘bittersweet’ kind of year. Jupiter in the sign of Scorpio brings many happy events – more money, more fun in life, optimism and personal creativity. But Saturn’s move into Capricorn late last year says ‘hold on a minute, you’ve got real responsibilities, you can’t just be having a good time’. Your challenge will be to enjoy your life while handling all your responsibilities – and there may be a few extra ones this year.
Pluto has been in your 7th house of love since January 2008. This has caused great changes in your love and social life. There have been many a divorce and separations during these past ten years. Spiritually speaking, you’re giving birth to the social life of your dreams: your ideal love and social life. This always involves purging the old and effete. Usually these are inner attitudes and beliefs but often it manifests in outer ways as well, such as the death of old relationships and the beginning of new ones. Now that Saturn has moved into your 7th house these new relationships will get ‘stress tested’. Only the good ones will survive. More on this later.
Uranus has been in your 10th house of career for the past seven years, which has brought multiple career changes to many of you. In some cases the career changes involved your industry or company. In others it involved your approach to the career. And sometimes it brought actual career changes – lawyers became talk-show hosts; doctors started writing blogs or entering online businesses – things of this nature. Uranus will still be in your 10th house for some of this year, but he leaves it between May and November and next year he will move out for good. So there is more stability happening in the career. A greater sense of security. Again, there is more on this later.
Uranus’s move into your 11th house from May 16 to November 6 will test many of your friendships. Over the next seven years your whole social circle will be changed and radically different.
Neptune has been in your 9th house of religion, education and ideas for some years now and he will be there for many more to come. This indicates a spiritualizing of your religious and philosophical beliefs. Many of you will be exploring the mystical side of the religion you were brought up in.
On November 8, Jupiter will move into your 6th house, his own sign and house. Thus he is very powerful. This brings happy job opportunities – very nice ones. It will bring good news on the health front as well. More on this later.
Your most important interests this year are fun, children and creativity (until November 8); health and work (from November 8 onwards); love and romance; foreign travel, higher education and religion; and career (from January 1 to May 16 and from November 6 to December 31).
Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year are fun, creativity and children (until November 8); health and work (from November 8 onwards); finance (until November 17); and the body, image and personal pleasure (from November 17 onwards).
Cancer Horoscope for 2018 Health
(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both of these perspectives were identical. But now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
Health needs some attention this year. You have three powerful long-term planets in stressful alignment with you, so overall energy is not what it should be. And this tends to make a person more vulnerable to things. Add to this that there will be times in the year when the short-term planets increase this stress and the vulnerabilities become greater. This doesn’t mean illness per se – it only means that more work, more attention, needs to be given to your health.
It’s not just something to take for granted.
Until November 8, your 6th house will generally be empty, with only shortterm planets passing through it. So there is a tendency toward ‘lack of attention’. You will have to force yourself to concentrate on health.
The good news, as our regular readers know, is that much can be done to enhance the health and prevent problems from developing. Give more attention to the following – the vulnerable areas in your Horoscope this year (the reflex points are shown below):
The heart. This area became important in 2008 and will be important for many more years to come. Since many spiritual healers affirm that worry (i.e. lack of faith) is a prime root cause of heart problems, it is good to cultivate faith.
The stomach (for women, the breasts). These are always important for the Cancerian. Eating right is always an important issue for you. What you eat is important, and should be checked with a professional, but how you eat can be just as important. The act of eating needs to be elevated from mere animal appetite to an act of worship. Bless your food. Give thanks for it.
Say grace (in your own words) before and after meals. Have soothing music playing when you eat. This will change the energy vibrations of both the food and your digestive system; the food will be digested better and you’ll get only the highest and best qualities from what you eat.
The liver and thighs. These too are very important for the Cancerian, as Jupiter, the ruler of these areas, is your health planet. Thighs should be regularly massaged, and a herbal liver cleanse every now and then – especially if you feel under the weather – is a good idea.
The colon, bladder and sexual organs. These have only become important recently – since last October – although they continue to be important until November 8. Safe sex and sexual moderation are crucial these days.
There should be neither too much nor too little. Listen to the body and not the mind. The body will tell you when enough is enough. A herbal colon cleanse every now and then is a good idea.
Your health planet Jupiter’s position in the sign of Scorpio shows a tendency to surgery. You sort of see it as the ‘quick’ solution to a health problem. But keep in mind that Scorpio also rules detoxification and often this will do the same job (though it does take somewhat longer). You respond well to detoxes this year.
Jupiter in your 5th house of fun and creativity indicates a need to ‘stay happy’. Watch the moods (Cancerians are very moody). Avoid depression like the plague. Keep the creative juices flowing. A creative hobby would be fun and therapeutic these days.
Cancer Horoscope for 2018 Home and Family
Home and family are always important to you, but the intensity of this feeling is less than usual this year. Your house of home and family is basically empty: only short-term planets will move through there this year.
Many of you have moved or refurbished the home in the past two years. Your family circle has expanded as well. This year you seem well content here and have no need to make major changes. It is a year that favours the status quo.
Cancerians of childbearing age were unusually fertile last year, and this trend continues in the year ahead. A pregnancy wouldn’t be a surprise. This year, your focus is more on your children (or the children figures in your life) rather than other family members. You get on well with them. They seem to bring great happiness and joy. They also seem very prosperous – living on a higher than usual standard – and inclined to travel as well. They seem like ‘happy campers’.
Major renovations or repairs to the home don’t seem likely this year (though the short-term planets and your personal Horoscope, cast for you, could modify this). But if you are repainting or re-arranging the furniture – beautifying the home in a cosmetic kind of way, the periods of August 7 to September 9 and November 16 to December 2 would be good times. These would also be good times to buy decorative objects for the home.
Your home and family planet is Venus. She is a fast-moving planet and in any given year she will move through every sector of your Horoscope. Thus there are many short-term trends with home and family, depending on where Venus is and the aspects she receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Venus will make one of her rare once-every-two-years retrograde moves this year, between October 5 and November 16. This will not be a time for major family decisions or major expenditure on the home. This is a time for reviewing things and for seeing where improvements can be made. You can put your plans into action when Venus moves forward again on November 16.
A parent or parent figure has gone through many personal changes over the last seven years, but now things are starting to settle down a bit. The other parent or parent figure is having a very prosperous year and seems generous with you. He or she can have job changes this year. Moves are not likely for them – these seem fraught with delays and difficulties. As we mentioned, children and children figures in your life are prospering, but a move is not likely. Siblings or sibling figures can move or renovate property, especially after November 8. (It could happen next year too.) Grandchildren (if you have them) are having a stable family year.
Cancer Horoscope for 2018 Finance and Career
The year ahead looks very prosperous. Jupiter is making beautiful aspects to you, so there is financial expansion. Happy opportunities. What the world calls ‘good luck’ (which is only the application of spiritual laws). There is luck in speculations and it probably wouldn’t hurt to invest modest sums in some form of speculation (although not your rent or food money please, and not automatically – only under intuition). Speculations are favourable but the cosmos has many ways to prosper you.
There are going to be many dramatic financial shifts and course corrections this year – more than usual. We have three Solar Eclipses this year, rather than the more usual two. And since the Sun is your financial planet, these bring changes and dramas. Also, two eclipses – one Solar and one Lunar – will occur in your money house. So, four out of the five eclipses this year impact finance.
My feeling is that you might be underestimating your earnings and need to change strategy.
If there is a financial weakness this year it is the lack of power in your money house. Only short-term planets will move through there. Generally this indicates satisfaction with earnings as they are. You sort of take prosperity for granted and have no need to overly focus here. However, if financial problems arise, lack of attention could be the cause.
Jupiter’s beautiful aspects to your Natal Sun suggests earning through work.
Your work will create the good fortune. It also shows earning from the health field.
Jupiter in your 5th house shows that children or children figures are important financially. Often they are the motivating force for financial success, but they can also come up with ideas or inspirations. If they are of appropriate age they can be physically and materially supportive too. Jupiter’s position here also indicates earnings from industries that cater to the youth market – music, entertainment, sports or companies that supply these industries.
Uranus has been in your 10th house of career for many years, as we have said, and he is still here for part of the year ahead. There have been many career changes over the time, but now this career uncertainty is starting to settle down now. It’s not quite over yet, but by next year it will be and there will be more stability and security here.
Uranus in your career house favours a freelance kind of career – a career that offers a lot of freedom and change. The electronic media and the online world are favoured. The only problem with a freelance career is the insecurity and uncertainty. Learning to live with this has been one of your main lessons over the past seven years.
There are a lot of short-term career trends, depending on where Mars, your career planet, is and the aspects he receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Cancer Horoscope for 2018 Love and Social Life
The love and social life is challenging this year. But, the challenges can bring many rewards if you handle them properly.
Saturn, as we have mentioned, will be in your 7th house of love for the next two years. This is a transit not conducive to marriage or to committed, contractual love. Even if you meet a ‘special someone’ it is not advisable to marry. Enjoy the relationship for what it is. Next year might be a better time for that.
As we mentioned, if you’re already in a marriage or serious relationship, it will get tested this year. This is not usually pleasant, but it has some good points. We never know if love is real during the good times, when everything is idyllic. We only find out during the tough times. If your marriage or relationship can handle the stress of the next two years it can probably survive anything.
Saturn is your love planet. So, in general, you tend to be traditional and conservative in marriage and relationships. But now, with Saturn in his own sign and house, you are apt to be more conservative than usual. And this goes for the spouse, partner or the people you get involved with.
Those of you who are single will tend to favour older, more settled kinds of people. Corporate types. Business types. There is a feeling of practicality in love (you always have this tendency, but more so now). You gravitate to the good provider, the ambitious person, the person who can help you in your career. The problem here is that ‘relationships of convenience’ rather than of real love are likely.
The spouse, partner or current love seems very ‘business-like’ these days: cool, aloof, standoffish. The element of passion seems missing. This will need to be ignited artificially. Both of you will have to work on this. Both of you will have to practise – make it a project – sending love and warmth to others.
For singles there is less dating and party-going this year. The cosmos is calling you to be more selective about these things. There is a need to focus on quality rather than quantity. You will date less, but the dates will be of higher quality.
Often this aspect brings social disappointments. Perhaps your expectations were too high. Perhaps you were too naive. You should look at this not as disappointment, but as ‘revelation from the Divine’. Truth sometimes hurts, but it is better than living a lie.
Those of you in or working toward the second marriage have a much easier time in the marriage. If you are unattached there is romance in store, but no need to rush into a marriage. Those in or working toward the third marriage will also have the relationship tested. If you are unattached, it would be better not to marry. You have the aspects for serial relationships rather than marriage.
Cancer Horoscope for 2018 Self-Improvement
Saturn in your 7th house, as we mentioned, brings challenges to the love and social life, which is being reorganized and made more stable. But this is a process, not one event. Saturn is going to reorganize – and test – your current love attitudes, your notions of what love is all about. Saturn, involved in love, often makes one a ‘non-believer ’ in love – at least in the romantic love that is idealized in our culture. One sort of feels, ‘love is an illusion anyway, so I might as well be practical about it’. This was the concept in many cultures for thousands of years – and is still prevalent in many parts of the world.
Marriages were arranged by the parents, who, presumably, were more clearheaded than their children. The chemistry between the two people was rarely an issue. Marriage was practical; it created bonds – either financial or diplomatic – between families. It was often an instrument of state policy. It was never about ‘personal fulfilment’. The thinking was that one can learn to love anybody, so one might as well learn to love someone who is useful to the state or to the family fortunes. Almost all marriages were marriages of convenience.
This concept has been largely abandoned in the Western world, yet, upon analysis, there is something very spiritual in this attitude. One can learn to love anyone – with practice and patience. Spiritually speaking, it is merely a choice that one makes, a moment-by-moment choice. Perhaps the chemistry is not what it should be. Perhaps the habits and mannerisms are off-putting. Yet, as any meditator knows, these are not obstructions to love. Spiritual love is above any and all human conditions. It is not dependent on ‘objects’. It is a spiritual force that anyone can tap into. It will flow, without distinction, to every part of life – the good, the bad or the ugly. This love might not approve of certain actions – it doesn’t whitewash reality – but it loves in spite of these things.
Learning this kind of love will be a great help over the next two years.
Meditation will help you.
There is another lesson that Saturn teaches about love – not popular to be sure, but valid. Duty and Love are generally seen as opposites, as antagonistic attitudes. Duty is seen as involving discipline, the stiff upper lip, effort and exertion. Love, on the other hand, is seen as effortless. Yet, duty performed in a loving way is perhaps the highest form of love. Someone who truly loves another will always do their duty to that person.
As we have said earlier on, Saturn in your 7th house is apt to bring disappointment, not only in love but with friends as well. Perhaps your expectations are too high. Perhaps the spouse or friend is undergoing a personal drama. Perhaps these people were never who you thought them to be.
No matter. This is a year to practise the art of forgiveness. It isn’t wise (or healthy) to hold on to grievances. You need all the help you can get in your relationships, and forgiveness will be a huge help.
Real forgiveness is never about ‘whitewashing’ history. We don’t paper things over. The people did what they did. It was wrong. Yet, we forgive. Real forgiveness happens when we can put ourselves in their shoes and understand why they did what they did. The realization often comes that had I been in that situation, I too might have acted that way.
Finally, some relationships will not survive the coming stresses. In the dissolution there are lessons too. In this situation you have a choice. You can maximize or minimize the negativity. Dissolution always brings negativity; the issue is, do you want to maximize or minimize it? It is best to minimize, wherever possible. Sadly, most choose the former course.

Cancer Horoscope for 2018 January

Best Days for Career: 1, 2, 10, 11, 20, 21, 22, 23
Saturn in your 7th house shows a year of reduced social activity. But this month, there is an increase. You’re in the midst of a yearly love and social peak. Alot of this socializing seems business related though, rather than romance related: business partnerships or joint ventures could happen – the opportunities are there.
Last month, on December 21, the upper half of your Horoscope began to become dominant, and this continues this month, after the 11th, as Mercury moves from the lower to the upper half of the chart. You’re entering the period to focus on your career. You’re not yet at the peak – this will come in a few months – but there is more focus. Home and family issues become less important. You serve your family best by being successful in the world.
Health needs watching this month, especially until the 20th. Sixty per cent of the planets (and sometimes 70 per cent) are in stressful alignment with you. So make sure you get enough rest. Aches and pains might not be as serious as they feel but just the natural consequence of low energy. When your energy is low pre-existing conditions can start to flare up. Enhance your health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. Spiritual healing seems powerful until the 11th.
After the 27th pay more attention to the head, face and scalp. Craniosacral therapy might be a good idea. The most important thing is to maintain high energy levels. You will see big improvement after the 20th, but you still need to pay attention.
A Lunar Eclipse on the 31st occurs in your money house, signalling a need to rethink and change your financial strategy and planning. The events of the eclipse will show you where you are off the mark. Every Lunar Eclipse is especially powerful on Cancerians as the Moon is the ruler of your Horoscope.
So, take it easy that period. Spend more quiet time at home. You will be redefining yourself, changing your image and self-concept over the next few months. This is a healthy thing to do, but with an eclipse involved, it is forced on you.
On the 20th the Sun, your financial planet, moves into Aquarius, your 8th house of regeneration. This is good for paying off debt (or for taking on loans), tax and estate planning and for buying insurance (or collecting on it). If you have good investment ideas it is a good time to attract outside backers to your projects.

Best Days for Career: 9, 10, 19, 20, 27, 28
Finance has not been a big issue in your life so far this year (and nor was it last year). Perhaps you haven’t paid enough attention here – the Lunar Eclipse last month and the upcoming Solar Eclipse on the 15th of this month are forcing you to pay more attention and make the changes that need to be made. It is tempting to have the financial life on ‘automatic pilot’ – but sometimes human intervention is necessary.
The Solar Eclipse this month occurs in your 8th house and affects not only your personal finances but the finances of the spouse, partner or current love.
If you’re involved in business partnerships it applies to your partner here as well. You both need to make course corrections in the financial life. Your thinking hasn’t been realistic, as the events of the eclipse will show. The 8th house connection often shows ‘near death’ experiences (or fears of death).
Here it involves financial ‘near death’ rather than physical. This eclipse also impacts on Mercury and Jupiter. Thus job changes can be in the works. The conditions of the workplace change. Your health is good this month, but the impact on Jupiter can bring some kind of health scare. It will bring – over the coming months – dramatic changes in your health regime. If you employ others there is instability in the workplace and dramas in the lives of employees. The impact on Mercury will test cars and communication equipment – you should drive more careful this period, more defensively.
Indeed, if you don’t need to drive, don’t. Since Mercury rules your 12th house of spirituality, there can be upheavals and shakeups in a charitable or spiritual organization you belong to. There are dramas in the lives of gurus or guru figures in your life.
Avoid speculations on the 9th and 10th and be careful of overspending.
Marriage is not advisable this year, but the love life improves from the 18th onwards. You still need to go slowly in love, and to be more choosey about who you date and what parties you attend.
Health is good this month and will get even better after the 18th. There is a lot of water in the Horoscope from the 18th onwards – at least half of the planets are in water signs. This is comfortable for you, but watch your mood.
Water-based therapies are beneficial all year, but especially this month.

A happy, prosperous and successful month ahead, Cancer, enjoy Last month on the 18th, your 9th house – considered one of the happiest – became very strong, and this is the situation until the 20th of this month. The financial planet, the Sun, in the 9th house shows prosperity, the enlargement of wealth. Foreign companies, foreign investments and foreigners in general are playing a huge role in earnings. The Sun in spiritual Pisces at the start of the month shows ‘miracle money’ rather than ‘natural money’. It shows an ability to access the supernatural sources of supply. It shows a good financial intuition too.
Power in the 9th house indicates good fortune for college students. If you’re involved in legal issues there is good fortune here too. Foreign lands are calling to you – travel is in the air. The planets favour sea travel rather than air or land travel: a cruise looks interesting.
With the north node of the Moon in your 2nd money house, your problem might be too much money rather than too little. (The north node tends to excess.) But this is a nice problem to have.
On the 20th the Sun crosses the Mid-heaven and enters your career house.
Forty per cent of the planets will be here – a strong percentage. The career is going well. You’re succeeding. There can be pay rises (official or unofficial) too. You have the financial favour of the authority figures in your life. Your good professional reputation is important financially – guard it. Your career planet, Mars, will move into your 7th house of love on the 17th, so you advance your career by social means. Attend the right parties and gatherings – perhaps you can host them as well.
Health needs more attention being paid to it from the 20th onwards, as many, many planets are in stressful alignment with you. Make sure to get enough rest. Try not to overwork in your career. Take breaks. Enhance your health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. Until the 17th (with Mars in your 6th house), scalp and face massage will be good. Good muscle tone seems important too.

Best Days for Career: 7, 8, 14, 15, 16, 17, 25, 26
Many of the trends we wrote about in March are still very much in effect for most of the month ahead. The career is still the main headline this month. You still have the financial favour of those in authority in your life. Your good professional reputation is still playing a role in earning.
Although home and family are always important to you, they are less pressing right now. Your success in the world is the best way to serve your family these days.
The Sun, your financial planet, travels with Uranus from the 17th to the 19th (although you could feel the effects of this even earlier). This transit indicates a sudden financial disturbance – perhaps an unexpected expense or some change that requires action. The good news is that it is a short-term change. Sometimes (very often) the sudden expense is balanced with a sudden, unexpected inflow of money. On the 20th, as the Sun moves into your 11th house, the high-tech and online world become important. This is a good financial transit as the Sun will be in conservative Taurus – your financial judgement will be sound. It will be a very good time to get involved with groups and organizations after the 20th. It will be fun and will help the bottom line. Most likely you will be spending more on computers and high-tech gadgetry.
Love has been stressful since March 17. Mars entered your 7th house and spends the month here. This can produce power struggles in love, which are never healthy. Also it can lead to relationships of convenience rather than of real love. (With Saturn in your 7th house all year, you have this tendency anyway. Now it becomes stronger.) The good news is that you advance your career in social ways – as we mentioned last month. You have a knack for meeting just the right people who can help your career. Like last month, a lot of your socializing is career related (or with people involved in your career).
Health still needs watching this month, especially until the 20th. The good news is that health is improved over last month. You can enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. Most importantly, do your best to maintain high levels of energy. Health will further improve after the 20th, but still needs some attention (planetary heavy hitters in Capricorn, Mars, Pluto and Saturn are not powers to be trifled with).
Cancer Horoscope for 2018 May
Best Days Overall: 9, 10, 18, 19, 26, 27, 28

Best Days for Career: 4, 5, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 24
On March 20 the planetary power started to shift from the Western, social sector of your chart, to the independent Eastern sector. This represents a psychological shift in you. The planetary power moves in your direction. It supports you. Because of this you are more independent than usual. There’s more of a ‘can do’ spirit. The Western social sector is still very strong – at least half of the planets are still there – so others and their favour are still important, but a bit less so now. This is a time to have things your way. Your personal initiative and skills matter. You are less in need of the approval of others than usual. So, this is a time to make those changes that need to be made.
This is a time to take responsibility for your own happiness. You have a few more months of heightened independence. If you wait too long – when the planets start moving away from you again – changes can be made but with greater difficulty.
Finances look good this month. If there is a weakness here it is your empty money house, which indicates you might not be paying enough attention here.
If financial challenges arise, start paying more attention. We get what we focus on. On the 1st your financial planet makes nice aspects to Saturn. This shows good financial cooperation with your spouse, partner or current love. Friends in general seem helpful. On the 11th and 12th the Sun makes very nice aspects to Pluto. This gives us a few messages. There is more luck in speculations.
Children and children figures in your life are more financially supportive – young people in general are more supportive. You probably spend more on children too, but they can also inspire earnings. On the 21st the Sun enters your spiritual 12th house. This shows good financial intuition. This is a good period to delve deeper into the spiritual dimensions of wealth. The Horoscope is saying that if you’re right spiritually, finance and family will take care of themselves.
Venus, your family planet, moves into your own sign on the 19th. This is a happy kind of aspect. Your looks improve; there is more grace and glamour to the image. Family members seem very devoted to you. Love is still problematic, but your looks are not the problem!
Venus spends most of the month ‘out of bounds’ – from the 6th to the 31st. Thus family members are outside their normal spheres. They are looking for solutions in far away or unfamiliar places.

Best Days for Career: 3, 4, 8, 9, 12, 13, 20, 21, 22, 30
A happy month ahead. Not perfect, but basically happy. The planetary power is now (especially after the 21st) in its maximum Eastern position and you are in a period of maximum independence for the year ahead. There have been periods in your life where you were more independent, but this year the Western sector (the social sector) of your chart is still strong. It’s the kind of month where you need to balance your personal interests with those of others.
Your personal desires are strong, but so are the social demands. Still, if conditions need changing this is the time to make those changes.
This is a prosperous month ahead. On the 1st and 2nd Venus makes beautiful aspects to Jupiter and Neptune (there is an exact Grand Trine at that time – a very positive aspect). The family as a whole prospers, especially a parent or parent figure. He or she will be more generous with you. Family support is good all month. Your financial planet remains in your 12th house until the 21st, which again emphasizes the financial intuition. Intuition is eminently logical, only we generally don’t see it right away. We see it in hindsight. On the 21st the Sun crosses your Ascendant and enters your 1st house – a very happy financial aspect. Financial windfalls come to you. Financial opportunities seek you out.
You have the ‘look’ of a money person during this period and others see you this way. ‘You’re flush’ as the saying goes. Aside from his position in your own sign, your financial planet will be part of a Grand Trine in Water – a rare and fortunate aspect. Finances flow smoothly to you.
Like last month, the love life could be better, but personal appearance is not the issue here. You and the beloved see things from opposite perspectives. The tendency is to separate (you live your life; he or she lives theirs). Even if there is no actual physical separation, emotionally there is. The challenge of both of you is to bridge your differences. Respect them, and bridge them. Sometimes one way is best, sometimes another. Both perspectives are valid. In astrology, opposites are always the best marriage partners (if they don’t kill each other first).

Finance has not been a big deal this year. For most of the year, your money house has been basically empty and you have seemed satisfied with the status quo. But last month the money house started to get powerful. Venus moved in on June 19 and Mercury on the 29th. This month your 2nd house will get even stronger as the Sun moves into it on the 22nd. Last month was prosperous –
this month even more so. There is a strong focus on finance, and this makes all the difference in the world.
Venus’s presence in the money house since June 14 indicates spending on the home and family – not a surprise. It also shows good family support and that family connections play an important role in earnings. Venus leaves the money house on the 10th. Mercury will spend the entire month in the 2nd house, signalling a good financial intuition. This aspect favours buying, selling and trading. Good sales, marketing and PR are important in whatever you do. The Sun’s move into the money house is also wonderful. He is in his own sign and house – and is more powerful than usual. This favours speculations, and industries that appeal to youth – entertainment, music, etc. For those of you who are more conservative, it also favours electric utilities and gold.
Mars, your career planet, spends most of the month ‘out of bounds’ – from the 9th onwards. This shows that career activities are pulling you into unknown territory, outside your normal sphere.
Two eclipses shake things up this month and keep things interesting. The Solar Eclipse of the 13th occurs in your own sign. Take it easy over this period. As with every Solar Eclipse there’s a need for a course correction in finance. The events of the eclipse will show you what’s needed. The eclipse in your sign indicates a need to redefine yourself – your image and self-concept.
The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th occurs in your 8th house and also impacts on your image and self-concept. This month is definitely a time to take stock of yourself and to decide on what image you want to project to the world. This eclipse affects Mars, so career changes and shakeups are happening. It could bring a happy career opportunity too. Perhaps surgery is recommended to you or to bosses or parent figures in your life.

Your career planet, Mars, is both retrograde and ‘out of bounds’ this month.
This suggests that you’re in unknown, unfamiliar territory and lack confidence and direction. Very understandable. Now is the time to gain as much mental clarity as you can. Career issues need time to resolve themselves. In the meantime you can focus more on the home and family and your emotional wellness. Back in June the planetary power began to shift to the lower half of your Horoscope. Now it is approaching its nadir. Career is important all year, but you can shift some attention to the home and family.
You’re still in the midst of yearly financial peak this month. The focus is on finance – as it should be. It is a prosperous month ahead. Mercury spends the month in your money house, showing, like last month, that good sales, marketing, advertising and PR are important in whatever you’re doing. The word has to get out about your product or service. We see this all month (and even next month too). On the 22nd your financial planet moves into your 3rd house, reinforcing this message. Buying, selling, trading and retailing are also paths to profits. It is probable that you’re spending more on books and magazines – on education – this month.
A Solar Eclipse on the 11th occurs in your money house, showing a need for more course corrections in the financial life. Financial thinking and planning hasn’t been realistic lately, as the events of the eclipse will show. The good news is that you’ll be able to make the necessary changes. This eclipse also affects the money people in your life and they have dramas – often lifechanging kinds of dramas. Sometimes this kind of eclipse brings shakeups at your bank or brokerage.
Health and energy are reasonable this month. You must keep in mind, though, that after the 13th (as Mars moves back into your 7th house) there are three powerful planets in stressful alignment with you. So stay in your body. Be aware of it. If you’re tired, rest. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
Love is still very stressful.

Finance is becoming less important this month. On the 6th Mercury leaves the money house and it is basically empty this month. (Only the Moon visits there on the 7th.) So, short-term financial goals have been more or less achieved and you don’t need to pay too much attention here now. Your financial planet will be in your 3rd house until the 22nd. Thus, as we have seen for the past two months, sales, marketing and advertising – getting the word out about your product or service – is vital. It also favours buying, selling, trading and retailing. On the 22nd the Sun moves into your 4th house of home and family.
So you’re spending more here. You can also earn from the home and family too. Sometimes people work more from home. Sometimes, the family or family connections provide financial support or opportunity. Sometimes the family inspires earnings through ideas and advice. Sometimes people earn through industries that cater to the home.
Health needs some attention after the 22nd. As always – and this is the number one priority – make sure you get enough rest (quality rest). Focus more on what is really essential in your life and let go of trivialities. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
Your career planet, Mars, remains ‘out of bounds’ until the 24th, but you seem to be acclimatized to your strange environment. Mars is moving forward now, however, and there is more career confidence, more direction.
This month you face one of the classic conflicts that many people face – only with you, Cancer, it is more dramatic. Your 4th house of home and family is strong, but the demands of the career are also powerful. Somehow, you have to give each their due. Your job is to be successful at home and in the career.
The family as a whole have prospered this year – children and children figures as well. Very soon their financial goals (the short-term ones at least) will have been attained and they will branch out to other interests.
Mars leaves your 7th house on the 11th and love should go a little bit better.
But even so, it still needs much work.

A happy and prosperous month ahead. Enjoy!
Until the 22nd your 4th house of home and family – your favourite house –
is still powerful. The cosmos impels you to focus on what you most love. Like last month, though, you have to divide your time with the demands of career, which are still very strong. Your career planet Mars has been in your 8th house of regeneration since September 11 and will be there for the rest of this month.
Often this brings ‘near death’ experiences in the career. Transformations. On the other hand, it indicates a very intense focus, which generally leads to success.
With Jupiter in your 5th house all year, you’re had a fun kind of year. But this coming month – especially after the 23rd – even more so. The Sun’s entry into your 5th house on the 23rd initiates a yearly personal pleasure peak.
Personal creativity has been strong all year, but now even more so. There is much involvement with children and children figures in your life. And, those of appropriate age are perhaps creating children these days.
Prosperity will be much stronger after the 23rd than before. Until then you need to work harder for earnings – work harder to achieve your financial goals. But after the 23rd it happens easier and in happier ways.
The financial planet in your 5th house favours speculation and risk taking.
Money comes to you easily and is spent easily. You spend more on the children (or children figures) in your life, but they can also be financial inspirations. If they are of appropriate age, they are likely to be supportive or provide opportunity. The good thing about this position is that one enjoys the money one has. One spends on fun kinds of activities. The Sun in the 5th house is all about ‘happy money’. Financial opportunities come as you are at the theatre, on holiday or at a party – while you’re having fun. Avoid speculations on the 11th and 12th. And from the 23rd to the 25th there is a short-term financial disturbance. You may have to make some changes.
Health and energy are dramatically better after the 22nd. In the meantime enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.

This is a very eventful kind of month. Uranus moves back into your 10th house of career on the 6th, creating more changes in the career. But by now – after seven years of this – you know how to handle it. More importantly, Jupiter, your health planet, moves into Sagittarius your 6th house on the 8th. This shows job changes. Work might be less fun than it has been. On the positive side, you will have wonderful new job opportunities in the next twelve or so months. Your job prospects are bright indeed.
You’re still in the midst of a yearly personal pleasure peak until the 22nd. By then, your urge for leisure is sated and you’re in the mood for work. This will be a good period (from the 22nd onwards) for doing all those mundane, boring, detail-oriented jobs that you’ve been putting off. You’ll have the energy and the drive to do them. Jupiter’s move into your 6th house brings changes to the health regime too. The liver and thighs – always important for you – become even more so, but it will not be necessary to focus on the colon, bladder and sexual organs now. Some of you might benefit from foreign doctors or foreign treatments. Some of you will want to travel abroad for treatment.
Jupiter in your 6th house (in his own sign and house) is a positive for health.
Here he is much stronger on your behalf than last year.
The planetary power is now mostly in the Western, social sector of your chart. This has been the case since late September and is now approaching its maximum. It is time to develop your social skills. Time to get things done by consensus, not by direct action. Let others have their way, so long as it isn’t destructive. Likeability is more important financially and in your career than personal skills. If you’re OK with others, the finances and career will fall into place.
Your financial planet is still in your 5th house of ‘happy money’ until the 22nd. So keep in mind our discussion of this last month. On the 22nd it enters your 6th house, indicating money from work and productive service. Probably you will spend more on your health and on health issues during this period, but you will have opportunities to earn from these things too. Children and children figures have prospered over the past year, and this month is especially strong for them.

Mars, your career planet, has been making nice aspects to you since November 16, and this trend continues in the month ahead. You’re getting on with bosses, elders, parents and parent figures. The authority figures in your life seem kindly disposed to you. Happy career developments are happening. A foreign trip might be necessary (looks like from the 5th to the 7th) for business. Career is furthered by your willingness to travel.
Your 5th house of fun is strong this month, but so is your 6th house of work.
So, you’re working hard and playing hard.
Money comes, like last month, through work. (In many cases there are extra jobs or overtime pay available.) A very nice job opportunity comes on the 21st or 22nd. This is also an excellent financial time. Health is basically good this month, but don’t let the normal ups and downs of finances get you down.
Health is health and money is money. Keep them separate in your mind. Health will need watching after the 21st. Give more attention to the liver and thighs.
Regular thighs massage will not only strengthen the liver, but the lower back as well. A herbal liver cleanse might be a good idea if you feel under the weather.
On the 21st the Sun enters your 7th house, signalling the importance of social connections in finance. Who you know is more important than how much you actually have. Often this shows a business-type partnership or joint venture. You seem very involved, financially, with the spouse, partner or current love.
With the planetary power now in its maximum Western position, likeability becomes more important for success than personal abilities. Likeability becomes an issue in finance as well. Perhaps you don’t have the best product or service, but if your customers like you, that’s enough.
On the 21st you begin a yearly love and social peak. It probably won’t compare to past years’ peaks, but it is the most active time for the current year.
Singles will probably be dating more, but serious romance, isn’t likely. Enjoy things for what they are.
