As Saturn passes through your 7th House of Love over the coming two years, there are going to be lots of heavy duty lessons in love coming your way. Relationships which have been floundering will either get sorted out and become more stable, or just crumble. But if that sounds scary, don't worry; it won't be all tough going by any means. Rather, there will be times, like this week, when your relationships feel stronger and stronger. Hard work pays off. Enjoy! For more info about your week, call our Angel Card line: 1900 999 888
Relationships enter a new phase this month as you're more willing to experiment and less bothered about a conventional love life. Freedom is the key to a happy relationship which is very different from your security-loving nature. So if you like the look of someone and you're single and they're single - go for it!
Attached? Show your beloved you're willing to try something new on Valentine's Day and be open to new ideas. This would be the perfect date to ask out someone you're attracted to, perhaps at school or your place of work, rather than wait for them to ask you.
One area of your life where it's not wise to take risks now is money. Two eclipses on the 1st and 16th light up the financial axis of your chart and sometimes eclipses coincide with unexpected events. They cast a shadow when important information is hidden from you. Keep your money safe and secure this month and wait for a more prosperous time to invest or spend wildly.
Your studies or working life could be thriving now, though, with action planet Mars rampant in this part of your horoscope. If you work hard, your efforts will be rewarded. This might include a cash bonus or another way of benefiting financially - maybe you're setting yourself up for your ideal career?
All that said, the 9-to-5 isn't that appealing for you. Once the personal planets start to move into your fellow water sign of Pisces from mid-month onwards, you'll be dreaming of something more than just study or work. Pisces awakens your inner free-spirit, your desire to see the world and to go beyond the everyday.
There might be a romantic agenda which is why you want to travel or go on a couple's holiday. If you're lucky, this could be the start of a holiday romance or even a romantic honeymoon.
If you're not coupled up, the second half of February looks especially gorgeous for travel or a study holiday. Grab any opportunity that comes your way and explore life to the full.
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!
