Your mind can be sharp early in the day, and you focus on your ideas, what you need to say and share, and how you can express yourself. As the day goes on, you can focus more on your feelings, wanting to slow down and stay within your comfort zone. Wondering what 2017 holds?

It's that time of the year. For more info about your week, call our Angel Card line: 1900 999 888
Venus, the planet of love, enters Sagittarius and your work zone to start the month, and she wants you to focus on the work and tasks you love doing. It would be a good month for creative work and projects with Mars, the planet of energy, entering Scorpio and your creativity zone early, but Mercury has other ideas. He is retrograde, moving backward in Sagittarius and your work zone, for most of December, and you can have too much work you don't find fun, or have too little focus on work because you only want to have fun. Try not to force yourself to be all work and no play, or all play and no work. A little balance can be a good thing.
Meanwhile, Venus, and the Sun enter Capricorn and your relationship zone in the middle of December, which brings your focus toward your loved ones later in the month. The teacher, Saturn, enters Capricorn mid-December as well, and this is a big event. In Sagittarius, Saturn has occupied your work zone over the last couple of years, and you needed to learn lessons about work, doing the right things on a daily basis, and the importance of streamlining. Now, you'll spend the next couple of years learning lessons about your relationships. Some people can leave your life, but you eventually realize it's for the better. If you do learn your lessons, you can emerge with stronger relationships and no longer waste time on anyone not worth it.
How many times have you read what it means to be a Cancerian and wondered why it doesn't feel 100% right? The thing is that over the years, Cancerians have been drawn and redrawn as homebodies who want to cook by day and tend the kids by night and pretty much do nothing else. What a load of tosh! In between the baking and the child raising you are one of the most dynamic signs of the zodiac.
The reason behind your Home In The Little House On The Prairie- reputation is that you are intuitive - thanks to the fact you are ruled by the Moon. Add that to being kind-hearted (as most Cancerians are) and of course you pick up on others' feelings and then want to nurture those in need! This tendency to nurture others usually means you feed them. You listen to them. You get to see a passing parade of people through your life, all wanting some TLC. They come over for coffee and a chat with someone who makes them feel safe and you get another chance to Do Your Thing and care for them. Polish that halo. But we also know you have plenty more sides toyour personality.
Family and friends are important to you and you build a nest for your loved ones that only a fool thinks he or she could penetrate. Yes, you like to nurture others, but not because you're some rosy-cheeked old Granny-type in an apron. You also nurture because Cancer is an uber feminine sign (ruled by the Moon), and nurturing is part of the whole feminine thang.
What a lot of people don't mention is that Cancer is also associated with Diana, the Huntress. Far from being an old Granny-type, Diana the Huntress was a fabulous, go-ahead woman (who may or may not have liked to cook pig-on-a-spit for her beloveds).
Cancerians are often told that they are moody, and this is, or isn't true, depending on your definition of the word moody. If you take moody to mean frequent bad moods, it's not true. But if you take it to mean changing attitudes and moods, it is. Yes, being Moon-ruled means that as La Luna passes through all the signs of the zodiac each month - spending around two and a half days in each sign - you pick up on her vibe much more than most. A Gemini Moon? Chat, chat, chat. A Pisces Moon? Break out the wine and tell me a romantic story.
A tendency to cling to the past is one of the pitfalls Cancerians have to avoid. Times move on and things change - accepting this is one of the Cancerians' challenges. Being tenacious is one thing, clinging on when you know it's all said and done is another. Cancerians are also renowned for having the same hard exterior and soft interior of their symbol, the Crab. Fine but make sure you do let others know when you are feeling vulnerable - that is one of the keys to happiness for you.
What you need more than anything and more than most people is a sense of security. If you read advice written by astrologers to people romancing Cancerians, your lovers are usually advised to reassure you that they love you at least once a day, preferably 10 times. And yet, though you love to love and you love to nurture, you are often repelled by overly-needy people, almost as though you prefer to chose who you assist. But assist you do. No matter what your sex, you tend to have loads of female friends, and you mother most of them, just as you also mother your lover. Just remember to allow others to look after you, too.
Like they Tarot card of The Moon, you're quite enigmatic. Work it, Cancer, work it!
