Cancer, welcome to your astrology forecast for the year 2017!
The year 2017 is going to be a year of commercial drive, work, continuous surprises in your career and family love. You will work harder than ever towards your career goals! A year when you feel better than ever at home, surrounded by your family.
Start of the year 2017
The year starts with Mercury being retrograde and that means things start slowly and some of what we do at this time of the new year must be redone later. You start the year thinking about your love life and if this is what you need in the future. Don’t take a decision just yet as Mercury can mislead you. Mercury will enter Capricorn sign again on the 12th of January, so at this time you will see things in a clear light and you can now take some decisions. Is he the one? Am I doing a good thing if I marry him? You are able to answer all these in the giant window opening from the 8th of Jan 2017 till the 6th of Feb when all planets are direct! This time of the year 2017 marks a good time to think about new year’s resolutions, put them on paper, draft a plan, connect to any stakeholders that can help with the implementation and start acting on the plan as soon as you can. Anything you do during this one month will impact the year ahead as this is the time to start anything new. Don’t wait until Spring as we are going to have a very challenging period during March and April. I invite you read on to see what I mean.
The Big Picture
In December 2016, we had some days that predicted the year 2017, the 24th of December 2016 and the 26th of December 2016. Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries are marking a very positive point in the sky that has influence all year long. The energy is Fire and it describes artistic creation, children, compatibility and opportunities. Cancer is a Water Sign and you don’t like or appreciate Fire that much, because you like more profound and more feeling! You will have feeling and passion, but you will miss out on thoughtful things! For Cancer, this trine marks some changes and quite important ones in the career front. You may prepare to change your career and what you do for a living. Saturn marks the area that has to do with daily life and that will bring some challenges. With Uranus in Aries, things are work and within your career are a continuous surprise. It is a good year to take action and to find strategic ways to fulfill your potential. Uranus will help you innovate yourself and your career path and Saturn will help you put in practice everything that you want. The first trine happened in December 2016 and the next time these 2 planets meet in 2017: May 19 and Nov 11. As I said, the good connection in the sky is all year, but in May and November things get more intense and we should watch for clues.
Stubborn Vibes of the Year 2017
Venus, the karmic, crazy, lucky planet will be retrograde in March and April 2017 and that puts all of us in some uncomfortable situations. For Cancer, the emphasis is on career, what you want to do and how you want to share all your knowledge to the world. You are not feeling comfortable in your career at this point and you think about new ways to release all your potential. At this time, you will feel you need to explain yourself and your position and you will try very hard to prove yourself. As it challenges your comfort zone and your security strategy, these months will prove to be quite difficult. You really need to change things and you think about solutions. Mercury will also join Venus who will also retrograde and that means double trouble in April 2017 and May 2017. It is not a good time to change something abruptly, but it is a great time to understand what you want from your career. Keep in mind that this is not good time to start something new or to travel. It’s a time of reflection and the power of intuition.
Eclipses this year are very powerful and they make an impact especially on the Leo and Aquarius Sun Sign. They mark changes, endings or beginnings with powerful disrupt of the status – quo and for you, it’s in the power of a business or money. You are thinking about how to make more money or something changes regarding to the way you earn money. It is a good time to change your job and to receive a higher paycheck or to start a new business that can make you earn more money. The 2 months that will change focus and that will mark this commercial drive for you will be February and August. Both months are marked by powerful Eclipses and both have very good aspects in the sky. You are a known to be great when it comes to bringing people together, so think about a business idea where money can come from that involves friends. You must work very hard for this and you need to understand that effort will pay off.
This is a quote that I think will have a great impact on Cancer in 2017: “Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.” (Theodore Isaac Rubin)
Good Vibes of the Year 2017
Jupiter changed signs in 2016, on the 9th of September from Virgo to Libra bringing a lot of positive energy to all of us and for you it’s good luck on the foundation. It is a good time to buy a new home or to redecorate or you are inventing people in more often and you just love your home and spending time there. This is mainly until Jupiter moves into Scorpio on the 10th of Oct 2017. I will talk more about this shift of energy in October 2017. Jupiter in Libra will oppose Uranus in Aries and that suggests a cry for freedom and for acting on what you need and want to do. To use this energy at its full potential, try to:
Buy or sell real estate for financial gain: Libra is all about business and relationship, that means it is a very good time to buy or sell a real estate and you will certainly earn some money over it. It is a good thing to begin a real estate business under this influence. A home bought under this influence is extremely comfortable and a great asset for you and your family. It is also a good idea to start a business in home design or to focus on sharing your services to the world on how to improve their home.
Improve your living arrangements: With this good energy for Cancer coming from Libra, anything that we do now in our home is being recognized as a very good deal! This is the time to improve your living arrangements. You feel perfect at home and it is clear that you are having better relations with your brother or sister and family comes first for you. There could be a family reunion at this time, a vacation, or another event that gives you a stronger sense of connection to your family.
