The Week Ahead for Cancer

19th Mar 2018 - 25th Mar 2018Have that discussion.  

Mars has only recently arrived in the zone of relating, and has yet to hook up to Saturn, Uranus and Pluto, so if all seems calm on the relationship front, expect something of a sea change. Clearly, no relationship endures without some tests, so if you are already sensing that something is amiss in a working or intimate partnership, open up a dialogue before the situation has time to deteriorate.

Career and life goals are also in the frame, and with a similar warning light: as always it is better to be the one who initiates a discussion, so try to talk the talk as early in the week as possible. Once Mercury turns retrograde (23rd) it’s going to be more difficult to find time and consensus.

March 2018

The Month Ahead for Cancer

 The first half of March is a period in which to enjoy life and to shore up weak structures. While this may have an entirely literal meaning – items you depend upon require attention – it is more a metaphor for making sure you have certain people on side. On the 17th, Mars moves into the relationship zone where, during the course of the following six weeks, it could spritz up your love life but also bring you into conflict with others. From this point avoid becoming totally polarized with an individual or an organization: negotiation is the way forward. Late in the month you may well discover what is set to stay and grow and who is no longer on your Christmas card list.

The Year Ahead for Cancer (2018)


Water signs are said to be emotional and vulnerable but you are a Cardinal water sign and the Cardinals are movers and shakers. Please keep reminding yourself of this truism as you go through 2018. Saturn is newly at the opposite point of the zodiac so you will need to toughen up because this is going to be the way to succeed.

If you are strong, others will back you and the opposition will melt away. Jupiter is boosting your image and creativity, whether this manifests as additions to the family or a big moment in the spotlight. A divine link between Jupiter and Neptune (25 May and 19 August) has the capacity to make a dream come true or at least for divine providence to make an appearance.

Not everyone belongs to your fan club, however, as you may well come to realize, but when you’re on the path to a new and better life, you don’t need baggage.

Love and relationships

Saturn’s new focus is first and foremost relationships. For some Cancerians marriage is on the cards while for others 2018 will prove a testing time for a partnership. Partners are like mirrors: we see our best and worst features in them, and this will help should you find yourself pointing the finger of blame at your other half.

You need to change too. And by altering your behaviour and perspective, your partner will change. And there could be many happy outcomes for couples in crisis. The week of the 25th June brings many of you to a crossroads: 31 March, 13 July and 25th September are other key points for relationship epiphanies.

Look for the patterns, Cancer: if you keep encountering a particular difficulty or attracting a similar type, either embrace it or bin it.

Work, life goals and finance

It’s down to you. Even in a corporate situation, exerting your opinions and bringing new ideas into the arena will raise your status. If you find a colleague or superior difficult, even bullying, rather than make a complaint, show you relish a challenge and build a solid network of supporters.

If push does come to shove, be confident about your future. Remember, you’re on the path to the new… The year’s main eclipses fall on the financial axis of your solar chart so there could be surprise gains and equally unanticipated losses in late January/early February and late July.

While you will get real value for money in your endeavours, and some employers and business partners will prove their weight in gold, it will be hard work pushing through contracts and agreements. Adapt and negotiate.

Celestial Tip

The peanut gallery has a voice but it’s centre stage where the action is. Take the spotlight and be the one to influence others. How many times have you chastised yourself for not coming forward when you could have made a difference.

Your innate caution can save you from a lot of hassle, but it can also prevent you from fulfilling your terrific potential.

Other people need your wisdom and your special skills now. Late May is one of the most potent periods of 2018 for beginning a new enterprise and showcasing your talents.
