LOVE, SEX AND RELATIONSHIPS
Cancer, you have Pluto in your Seventh House of former, current and potential partners. Your love life has become the big education area since 2008, thanks to issues about power and control. You are learning all the time, though, and mistakes made in 2011 will not happen again. For more on this cycle and one of the longest horoscopes I have ever written in my life, please see my love, sex and relationship forecast for you at Cosmopolitan magazine. If you’re planning a wedding, find your dates with fate at The Knot.
GREAT GROUPS AND GOOD FRIENDS
Cancer, you are in line for six months of social life growth, far more meaningful friendships and groups which are remarkably fortunate for you - starting from Christmas Day, December 25th, and finishing on June 11th. Sagittarian types (check their charts free at Astro.com) may help or perhaps you have those with Jupiter prominent in their charts around you. People who are university-educated, read philosophy books, have faith in spirituality, take a global view and think big are your guardian angels in the first six months of the year. The group you are already a member of, or wish to join, at this time will deliver more than you ever dreamed. It could absolutely change your ilfe.
I WANT TO BE ALONE
Greta Garbo famously said ‘I want to be alone’ and you should too, because between June 11th and December 31st, your me-time is heaven-sent. The period around July 31st , weeks after your birthday, is particularly significant, but even the simplest thing, like the sextile from Venus to Jupiter on September 21st, will keep things moving. What you do by yourself is solid gold. What you deliberately cover up from other people is meaningful and life-enhancing. Your classified information or solitude, after June, will deliver incredible benefits not seen for 12 years.
WHAT NOT TO DO
Soon after Neptune changes signs on February 3rd, you will be drawn into a situation involving travel, foreigners, education, publishing and/or belief systems which lacks any kind of form or structure. Be particularly cautious with people who have heavenly bodies in Pisces or exact Neptune aspects in their natal charts. (Check at Astro.com). People who are habitual stoners or drinkers, cult members (oh those ‘meditators’!) or addicted to drugs (or Class A or prescribed) should be handled with care. Avoid chaos as a traveller, student, teacher, writer or publisher this year by respecting boundaries.
Saturn leaves your zone of the home (and family, and share household) from October 5th when you can breathe a sigh of relief, as the house, flat, clan or flatmate situation will never make you feel this vulnerable again. However, there will be new realities to deal with, from October 5th, in terms of the children in your world, or the sex. From October 19th you may imagine you know the score. However, that one central issue about your son, daughter, lover (or sex life) could be reversed or delayed before November 26th, so be very careful with the fine print or assumptions. It’s also possible this is about a children’s professional or charity organisation, or just other people’s kids! From November 26, though, , it looks as though you have some important, useful choices to make.
