The moon constantly changes its appearance; it waxes and wanes, remaining inconspicuous by day but becoming queen of the night, turning an ordinary landscape into a thing of mystery and enchantment. And so it is with Cancer - a cautious, unassuming and gentle exterior conceals a strong, ambitious and forceful inner-being, one whose most passionate qualities are revealed when in love, and one whose protective and possessive instincts come to the fore as wife and mother. You are one of the most unlikely zodiac types to be promiscuous: you crave security and stability, you resist change and hang onto the past like a life-raft. The sad fact is that in this modern age even the devoted Cancerian can experience rifts and ruptures in their relationships, and sometimes, when they have been deeply, deeply hurt, they never recover, remaining single and somewhat bitter for the rest of their lives. The Celestial Crab never forgets where she has buried the hatchet.
You share with Taurus a need to let your loved ones lead lives of their own: a partner who feels free but adored and cherished is a happy one. One of the biggest lessons Cancer must learn in life is to let go, in every sense of the phrase: you trust yourself, and you ought to trust those you love, otherwise your fear of being let down, betrayed and left becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Love and marriage go hand in hand for the Cancer female - unless you've had an extremely difficult upbringing, you will tend to marry young, and, more importantly, stay with your man, through thick and thin. Indeed, when Ms Cancer vows to love in sickness and in health, for richer for poorer, and until death do you part, she really, really means it.
Don't be fooled. This man may seem pliable, diffident, romantic and stable but behind that smokescreen is a determined, focused and emotionally complex individual. He is, I have to say, possessed by mother, by which I mean the relationship he has had with his mother - good or bad - powerfully affects his romantic and marital life. Your best bet is never to criticize his mother, nor insult his family: let him do all the whingeing (which the male Crab does rather a lot). Mr Cancer adores fiery women - think Salma Hayek in Frida - although he often marries women who represent a safety blanket, someone he knows will never stray, someone who will make a mother for his children and a home for him to scuttle back to day after day, night after night.
You feel most at home with your family, which in terms of astrology means your fellow Cardinal signs - Aries, Libra, Capricorn and Cancer. You are fatally attracted to Mr Libra because he is just the smoothest guy on the block. He is romantic, well-mannered and prepared to talk about the relationship: the trouble is talk is sometimes all you get after a few years. The Aries man is another magnet - confident, flashy - he is the epitome of the knight in shining armour. Great at first but anxiety-making in the long run. Capricorn man is near perfect - he will never let you down, he is strong, stable and solvent but don't expect fireworks and a speedy engagement. Two Cancers together is another dream ticket and another long, slow dance to the altar. Mr Taurus and Mr Virgo are two other men tailor-made for the sensitive and needy Cancerian. The sexual chemistry should be fantastic, especially with the Taurean, but both signs are caring, responsible and in it for the long term.

So, you must be asking yourself, when does all the fun begin? Well, I’m not sure that you could describe 2016 as fun on sticks but it is an improvement on the past two years. Your world will become bigger, both in the figurative sense and in the way of travel, and although you are normally a cautious creature a new spirit of adventure will lead to many positive life changes. Uranus and Pluto continue to challenge you to move away from the past and to be focussed in your quest for a bigger and better life; and, especially if your birthday falls between the 3rd and 7th July, 2016 has many surprises and opportunities up its sleeve. Jupiter’s arrival at the base of your horoscope (9th September) will begin an upwardly-mobile twelve months: some Cancerians will rise to prominence in their chosen field and many will be celebrating a new era for family life.
With age comes wisdom, and once the worst that could happen to you has indeed happened, there is nothing to fear. So, remove that trespassers-keep-out sign from across your heart and open yourself to love. While some Cancerians will marry this year (July has some quite spectacular influences) others will no longer be prepared to put up with a sexless, loveless relationship, leaving them open to a new and all-consuming passion. Have the courage that passion gives you because it is time to begin a new chapter of your life. Someone coming into your world on 2016’s influences is an important part of your destiny. Travel could play a significant role in your love story too, whether you meet a new love in a distant place or big decisions are made when you are away from home turf.
Last October represented a turning point, whether events set you on a new course or you decided the time had come to make a major life change. Maybe you acted on those understandings or perhaps you lost momentum. Either way, 2016 continues to challenge you to find your correct niche. The eclipses of the year - the great game-changers - take place on the axis of travel and education, so while some Cancerians will gain qualifications that help them in their search for the right job, others will find career opportunities in a far away location. Languages, law, education and publishing could all be appropriate routes for you to explore. Offers and opportunities may arise on or near 16th March, 26th May, 24th June and 26th December, and these are all periods of positive change. One last thing: you may not be paid what you deserve but for now less is more.

It has been a bad week for actress, Sheridan Smith. Caught on camera at the B.A.F.T.A. awards looking crushed when her BBC adaptation, The C Word failed to win best single drama, her disappointment was compounded by a mugging on Twitter from viewers accusing her of being a diva and a sore loser.
