Cancer 2017

2017 Overview

Cancer Horoscope
Two major cosmic events took place in the final 12 days of 2016, events that in a nutshell sum up much of what you can expect and all that you need to know about 2017. As you open the door to 2017 and take your first look at the year and journey ahead, you’ll gain much by looking back at the previous 12 days. For the first time in 12 years you’re moving into the New Year with Jupiter in your home and family sector, making this a big, important and expansive year for home, family and/or property matters and from the get go this has to be a priority. Yet in the final 12 days of December Jupiter moved into opposition with Uranus in your career sector, bringing work/life balance tensions and issues to a head, something that will take weeks into the New Year to ease back. With work/life balance in your face from the get go and lucky Jupiter making this such an important year for home and family matters, you would think that this would have put professional forces in their place. Wrong. For it was over the exact same time that a major alliance between Saturn and Uranus unleashed some of the most powerful forces to come together on the job and career fronts in decades. In a nutshell, this sums up 2017 for you, a year of major career and job growth, something that will continue throughout the year, but will be off the chart during the first half of the year. Yet at the same time this is a huge year for home, family and/or property matters, with work/life balance an issue that will dog you throughout the year if you don’t take it seriously from the get go. The advantage this gives you, is that you have this year sussed from the get go, aware of the opportunities and the challenges and therefore how to solve them. This will definitely be worth your while and you will benefit from any sacrifices or compromises you are forced to make. Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion, so this is going to be a really good year for home, family and/or property matters and you don’t want, nor do you have to sacrifice that. However, this isn’t just a huge year for job and career matters, there are clues that this is likely to be a lucrative year as well. A lunar eclipse in your income sector on the 11th February and a total solar eclipse on the 21st August suggest there is hidden gold this year, for eclipses are only ever the tips of an iceberg, with much of the potential underneath the surface. With so much unfolding on the job and career fronts, that untapped income potential has plenty of support. From the get go get used to a balance between work and play, for with your luckiest year for love, matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative in over a decade beginning in October, there needs to be room in your life for this.


This year just has to be the best kept secret ever, though there were clues back in Christmas 2016 that something was stirring. This was more hints from the universe that the romantic drought was getting ready to break and while it might not be any time soon, that you needed to be prepared. There is no way to prepare you for what’s coming unless I break the secret, which is that your luckiest year for love and romance is on the way and will begin on the 10th October and run through to November 2018. That gives you over nine months to prepare and that means no room for excuses or shying away from what lies ahead. Of course the Moon’s monthly visits to your romantic sector will act as a trail of breadcrumbs, leading you to what lies ahead, the biggest chance to prepare will be during Venus, planet of love’s return to Cancer from the 31st July to the 26th August. While that might seem a life time away and returning after your birthday month is over and therefore much later in the year than she normally would, when you’re preparing for something this big, Venus needs to take her time. Moving through after your birthday month is over, means you will have a chance to focus exclusively on updating your romantic desires and expectations, without the distractions of all the mundane resolutions that the Sun requires. While the Moon’s monthly visits to your romantic sector will give you a sense of direction, the most important of those visits will be in May, a visit that will produce a Full Moon on the 10th May. Coincidently, this falls exactly five months to the day before lucky Jupiter’s return, providing one of the clearest road signs of the year, pointing in the right direction. Once the romantic drought breaks on the 10th October expect a torrent, with every available love god moving through between then and the 26th January 2018. With the flotilla of support during the first four months of this lucky year for love, look forward to a well supported start. December 2017 will also usher in something major on the relationship front as well, with Saturn’s return to your relationship sector on the 20th December kicking off your most powerful three years for relationship building in three decades. Something is definitely happening in the final three months of the year, giving you the majority of the year to prepare. The focus will always be on your relationships in the early and later months of every year and with the Sun in your relationship sector until the 19th January and Mercury until the 7th February, this will give you a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. However, this is nothing compared to what is developing in December.


2017 should be a good year for money matters, with the financial confidence you’re moving into the year with well justified. There could be a sense that you’re onto a winning streak that must sooner or later bottom out, except this has nothing to do with the amount of money you have coming in or how much money you have in your bank and more a sense of being in control of your own financial destiny. You are a Sign that knows how to manage money matters and all you need is a few lucky breaks from the stars and you’re on your way. You got those lucky breaks in the final two months of 2016, allowing you to move into 2017 with your financial confidence high and your financial desires, passions and fighting spirit already fuelled. Yet from such a confident start you have some very ordinary forces to work with and it won’t be until February that there will be any indication of where that unshakable sense of financial confidence is really coming from. This comes in the form of a lunar eclipse in your income sector on the 11th February. It’s not just that as an eclipsing Full Moon this is destined to be more fruitful than an ordinary Full Moon or the implications behind it and more when it falls. To have a lunar eclipse fate has to be in play and with three out of this year’s four eclipses falling in your two money houses and two in your income sector that is definitely the case. What makes the lunar eclipse in your income sector on the 11th February so potentially lucrative is the fact that it will fall just days after Venus and Mars’ return to your career sector and during some stunning developments on the job and career fronts. This is a taste of things to come, with the most lucrative months of 2017 running from the 6th July to the 20th September, with August and September likely to be the most lucrative months. It is within that period that you’ll have two New Moons in your income sector, the first on the 23rd July and the second on the 21st August, but it’s the second New Moon that is also a total solar eclipse, creating the potential for major new income opportunities. It is also within that same period that the third eclipse will fall, this time in your financial sector on the 7th August. You don’t know this when you move into the New Year but an unshakable sense of financial confidence does. While you have a chance to take care of any financial housekeeping in January and February, it will be with a sense that something fateful is building across the income and financial fronts. Despite its fairly ordinary beginnings, you have every reason to feel confident from the get go.

 About Cancer

Cancerians are good at nurturing. Ruled by the Moon, they make great parents, and can be selfless when it comes to making sacrifices for their families. Cancerians are also shrewd judges of character, and give useful advice. They are quick to offer a sympathetic ear and a shoulder to cry on, followed by a warm hug. A kind, caring Cancerian is a blessing in times of crisis. Cancerians love food, and spoiling the people they love. Family comes first with Cancerians, but even when they have little or no family of their own, they will create a family atmosphere with their friends.

The trouble is that they tend to get addicted to the role of nurturer, and find it hard to let go when loved ones need to stand on their own feet. Make sure you know when to step back as well as forward, because things get really ugly when your mother love turns to smother love.
