Like their animal symbol, the crab, Cancers are known to swiftly sidestep unpleasant situations. But in 2018, you won’t want to shuffle away as quickly as you usually do, darling Cancer. Jupiter in like-minded water sign Scorpio activates your fifth house, the beautifully inspired area of your chart associated with arts and romance. With abundant Jupiter illuminating this creative, flirty, and imaginative sector, you can look forward to passion, trysts, and butterflies in your stomach over the next several months. When Jupiter cruises into Sagittarius on November 8, you’ll feel inspired to get back to work…but only after having experienced lots of sultry adventures.
2018 is indeed an extremely auspicious year to expand your artistic oeuvre or fall in lust. Be careful, though, to not confuse a fling with forever. For the next three years, Saturn will be barreling across your opposite sign, Capricorn, in your seventh house of serious partnerships. Though stoic Saturns hates to reveal its enthusiasm, it’s actually quite content moving through the Capricorn constellation. Saturn’s primary purpose is to teach us lessons, so until December 2020, don’t be surprised if you encounter some challenges forming (or maintaining) committed relationships. But don’t fret, darling Cancer, you’re not doomed! Though Saturn sometimes has a funny way of showing it, the taskmaster planet wants us to be happy. By the end of this transit, you will possess the wisdom and first-hand experience to truly understand the qualities you seek in a long-term partner — as well as the relationship bullshit you want to kick to the curb.
For the past seven years, Uranus has been activating your tenth house of career, creating serious quakes in the professional region of your chart. While Uranus always guarantees surprises, its move into Taurus on May 15 will shift the attention to your eleventh house of extended career, shaking up your social sphere until 2026. Uranus moves signs every seven years, and the last time it was in Taurus was 1941. This placement is a long time coming! Your friend group may get a major overhaul in the next several years, darling Cancer, especially as you find yourself exploring innovative and progressive interests (Uranus rules unconventional progress). Don’t be afraid to get weird, crab! Let your idiosyncrasies shine.
Cancer is ruled by the moon, the fastest moving celestial body in the cosmos. While Cancer’s moods can change as quickly as the lunar phases cycle, the great news is that the moon never goes retrograde. In 2018, however, there is an extra important moon motion to note: On July 12, a solar eclipse occurs in your own sign, kicking off the next series of eclipses. They will be all about your personal growth: July’s solar eclipse, which occurs during a new moon, activates an extremely important eclipse cycle that will continue for the next two years. Take note of major changes that occur in your life during your birthday season and beyond, darling Cancer.
The four other eclipses of 2018 will activate the financial sector of your chart. Keep an eye on your bank account on January 31, February 15, July 27, and August 11. Eclipses often bring shocking news, which may come in the form of an unexpected deposit — or terribly timed withdrawal. Don’t worry, Cancer babe, this is nothing new. This eclipse narrative has been in rotation since 2016, and it’s almost finished. You got this!
