Although Cancerians are well known for their emotional natures, there’s a tough side too that only those close ever get to see. Most people would be quite unaware of the strength and resilience deep down in the core of the Cancerian heart. During 2018 there will be a few challenges, but the silver lining is that Cancerians can show their metal and what they’re really made of – tough stuff!
Mercury retrograde causes miscommunications for all astrological signs and sometimes in a major way, playing havoc with relationships, business, legal issues and career. Be careful starting projects when Mercury is retrograde as things can get easily muddled up and you might have to go back again and redo things you thought had already been done. Remember, if in doubt – don’t! Misunderstandings and presentations go skew-iff along with your credibility if you’re not careful during this time.
During 2018 Mercury goes retrograde 3 times:
- 22nd March to 15th April
- 26th July until 19th August
- 16th November until 6th December
Coming out of retrograde Mercury is moving forwards improving communications and life becomes much clearer again. There is also a shadow period of approximately 5-7 days on either side of the dates above when Mercury is increasing or decreasing in intensity. During the shadow time, the effects of Mercury retrograde are still there but not as intense.
Don’t be discouraged if you feel a delay in progress early in the year
January is likely to be a big month for you Courageous Cancer with a full moon Supermoon on the 2nd and then again a blue moon Supermoon on the 31st. Having 2 Supermoons to start the year off will bring up all manner of subconscious feelings positive and negative, especially given that the Moon is your ruling planet (ok I know technically, the moon is not a planet but for the purposes of astrology the influences are significantly strong enough to treat the moon as though it is a planet).
At the beginning of the year Saturn is in the 7th house of marriage and commitment. Saturn here has the ability to cause obstacles and delays both in personal and business relationships.
So the first couple of weeks could be a little bit tough for sensitive Cancerians. Go hide out somewhere and try to relax while and let someone else take care of everything if you can. It’s only until mid-January and then life improves.
Mother Jupiter is still in Scorpio with Mars in the 5th House at the start of the year until 9th March, this is likely to give you many expansive opportunities especially around leisure, children, love and fun. You could also find your creative self expression really blossoming at this time. Jupiter then turns around and goes retrograde 9th March until 11th July, so you might find yourself slowing down at bit in these areas or things going backward. After 11th July, everything resumes balance and forward you go again.
Do the hard work first so you can enjoy the rewards later
The beginning of the year sees Saturn in Capricorn in your 7th House which can cause a few issues, delaying your progress in some way. You might find yourself in a bit of a sober or more serious type relationship perhaps with someone older, who might offer you lots of good advice and practical knowledge. You will be forced to push through without too much fun as your mind is on more serious subjects. Just remember, whatever you’re looking for, Saturn will encourage you to do the hard work first so you can enjoy the rewards later. It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen!
You will be expanding and going through intense transformation
Fiery Mars enters air sign Aquarius in the 8th house mid-May. This is likely to be a very hot time for you in romance. The 8th house is the house of sex, secrets, psychic ability, death and rebirth and with the motivation and ambition of fiery Mars, you’re going to want to develop these parts of yourself. Air sign Aquarius is often eccentric, individualistic and experimental. You might find all sorts of weird and wonderful things are happening in regard to romance and sex. Alternatively, your psychic abilities could be going right off the Richter scale as you go from strength to strength with spiritual development and divination. Whichever way it goes, you will be expanding and going through a period of intense transformation. It could be you suffer a kind of identity death before being reborn with new spiritual gifts. Don’t worry, this death is not about your physical body, it’s a normal stage in psychological development, before you move onto a new identity.
Uranus visits the 11th house mid May to November bringing opportunities to meet eccentric and interesting people through technology. Perhaps you’ll meet new friends via social media? The 11th house is your house of hopes and wishes, friends and groups. So innovative and off the wall things can happen regarding these things. You might find you get what you always wished for but you get it in rather strange ways over the next 8 years or so.
Let go of anything that will restrict your growth
Mid-year it will be time to release the past and let go of old hurts and injuries. The end of June allows you to move forward around your birthday. There’s no need to be afraid of the truth for it will set you free and you will finally see that not everything is your fault. Others may play the blame game but you know in your heart of hearts, how much responsibility you should bear for current circumstances. Let go of anyone and anything that would seek to restrict you and elicits misplaced feelings of guilt when there is nothing to feel guilty about.
July brings a beneficial sun in trine with the moon in Cancer bringing you many opportunities. As the moon (your ruling planet) is involved, you can be assured this time is important and your intuition and psychic abilities will be keenly accurate.
12th July sees a solar eclipse in your sign which is helpful for new beginnings and opportunities. You might reinvent yourself in some way, focusing on your own requirements rather than other peoples. Follow your heart’s true desires at this time and don’t be put off by what others may say.
Late October brings another beneficial trine when the Moon in Cancer and the Sun in Scorpio strengthen your psychic abilities once again. You’ll see right through anyone who tries to tell you any porkies.
