Cancer 2017 stars: your year ahead

It’s time to get your house in order, perhaps literally! Yes, you’re a sentimental soul, but clear-outs can be liberating, and as outworn items are released, new people and opportunities will begin to enter your life. You might even leave a long-term job or launch a home based business.

Creative projects might get you cocooning through winter (southern hemisphere seasons have been used), but spring will transform you into a social butterfly. A new pastime might introduce more laughs into life, and as a spin-off, a budding romance may blossom. For longer term couples, spring should feel like a breath of fresh air … as dreams for the future are discussed and shared, you might even fall in love all over again.

Keywords: idealistic, hardworking, motivated, expansive, sentimental … home and family

Love & friendship

Cancerians love pottering around at home, but this year, you’re being propelled out and about – like it or not! Whether it’s school fundraisers, local sporting groups or family functions, autumn will vanish in a cloud of dust. Easter could bring a shared holiday or romantic interlude, but if you really want to be swept off your feet, spring is the season for you. As your social life reignites, friends both old and new will rekindle that enthusiastic, fun-loving side. Even if you don’t find true love, you find plenty of laughs.

Cash & career

As they say, make hay while the sun shines. February’s proactive patterns could present you with a golden opportunity; as Mars activates that ambitious streak, some Crabs might even switch jobs or kick-start an exciting new enterprise. The August 22 eclipse could boost your bank balance, but if you’ve overextended, it might prompt you to rework strategies and polish up that nest egg. October’s restless stars might get you dreaming, but with repairs, or perhaps even a relocation on the cards, don’t stretch yourself too thin.

Health & wellbeing

Feeling a little stiff? Blame Saturn … then look for pastimes that promote flexibility and mobility. Yoga, dancing and swimming should loosen you up, along with massages and sessions in the sauna. Shaping a new you should be easy under autumn’s disciplined sky: diets, weight training or a spot of surgery could produce pleasing results, while spring’s chatty stars might point you towards social tennis or a fun walking group. From October, a wonderfully fertile energy will begin to flood your chart, so take care – or go for it.

Cancer food & fitness style

Your sign craves anything moist and yummy, from juicy melons to casseroles, soups, cakes and risottos… and then, the desserts. With Cancer ruling all things aquatic, it may be time to learn more about seafood. Okay, so you may draw the line at crabs, but your thighs will thank you.

Being a water sign, swimming and aquaerobics might hit the spot, or sports like sailing and canoeing may appeal. But let’s not forget, you’re also the zodiac’s homebody, so if swimsuits aren’t your style, stock up on fitness DVDs or convert a spare room into a chilled out space that’s just for you. Pilates and yoga should leave you supple and strong.

Cancer travel style

Sentimental Cancerians love a trip down memory lane, so childhood holiday haunts, catch-ups with friends and historical towns often strike a chord. Alternatively, campervans and houseboats can create a cosy home away from home.

TRY: Caravan or campervan trip, heritage hotel or B&B, Sovereign Hill in Ballarat,  houseboat, family reunion, casino, seaside cabin, train journey, gourmet food and wine region, Pacific island cruise, Scottish or Irish castle

Cancerian gemstones and crystals

Amber, calcite, citrine, emerald, moonstone (soothing and intuitive), opal, pink tourmaline, pearl (your ruling gem). I you’d like to order any crystals please email me at … I often have a few in stock.
