Cancer: 21st Jun - 22nd Jul

You are likely to be feeling quite sensitive and emotionally open today. For this reason, you could find other people seem too forceful, powerful or ruthless for you to feel comfortable around them. This could especially be the case in relationships. Or you might feel as if others want to try to change you. This may, however, not really not be their intention. You may just perceive them that way because their natural expression contrasts with the comparatively mild and gentle manner you may approach the world with today.

You may make a powerful impression on others, especially in romance and personal relationships.

Today, you might feel the need to spend time with friends or among a group of people that you can feel part of. But you could find your values clash with those of your friends, or the majority of others in a group. You may want to break way from a group or rebel against it, especially if you feel it restricts your freedom or independence. However, a friend or group of people might be able to help you refine your own values or make a decision. A friend who may value your opinion could look to you for advice today,

You may prefer to handle money, be self-sufficient and make financial decisions in your own way. But you could find you have the opportunity to achieve more by allowing someone else to give you financial support or by entering into joint financial arrangements. Your decision might need to be a compromise between the two. However, you could have differences with others over money, property or material possessions today. Or you might feel that being part of a group, while it may bring excitement and adventure, could place too many demands on your resources, or threaten your financial security. You may need to take care not to be reckless and take risks with money or to overspend, especially if influenced by others. This might not be the best day for making financial decisions or purchases, as your values may not be steady and consistent and you could make choices today that you may regret in days to come. The way to get the best out of today may be to join with friends or a group of people, focus on those common values that unite you with others and do something exciting and stimulating together that is within your means.

At work and in business, you may need to take care to ensure that you do not make rash or impulsive decisions, or jeopardise your own financial security. You may be able to earn best by working together as a team with others. However, you might have some differences of opinion with others at work about what is likely to be most profitable, or which decisions may be most financially. But these should be easy to resolve if you can collaborate with others to generate ideas together and make collective decisions. It might also be a good idea to try to make financial decisions that allow you to be independent and in charge of your own work. Your work could involve something unusual or unconventional, or you might choose to take a different approach in some way. Your ideas, originality and inventiveness might help you to make money. The work you do could enable you to act as a force for change or reform that could help other people’s financial situation as well as earn you money.

You may feel a desire to retreat to your home or somewhere private, away from the wider world. But if you do, it is possible you might become restless and want to break away from your everyday domestic routine in search of something that gives you a larger sense of identity. It could help to spend some time outside the home doing something new and different with your family.

Today, you may want to be yourself and find enough spare time to pursue your own interests and have fun. But at the same time, you could feel driven by the need to make money and there might be financial opportunities today. You may feel that what you need to do to earn money gets in the way of your self expression and creativity. But you might also feel it is difficult to have fun and enjoy yourself if you don’t work hard and secure enough resources to make it all possible.

Being yourself and harnessing your creativity could be the key to making and managing money today. You might be able to express yourself creatively in your work today, perhaps on a larger scale than before. Or the way you express yourself may help you to reach a wider audience. However, there could be something of a conflict between your desire to be creative and your need to earn money. You may feel you are being asked to compromise your creative expression for financial reasons. The key could be to work out the best compromise between both needs.

In romance and relationships, you are likely to feel adventurous and enthusiastic. But you may need to take care not to be over-confident or arrogant in your approach to someone you are interested in. You might also need to beware a tendency to possessive feelings in relationships. However, you could realise just how much you value someone, today.

Sharing is Caring

Week beginning Monday 21st May 2018

As the week begins, you might feel a little tired and lacking in vitality. You may prefer to be alone, as you could be very sensitive to the emotions circulating in your environment. If you are around others, you may tend to become overwhelmed by their feelings and feel the weight of their worries and problems. The way to get the best out of this time could be to reflect quietly and lose yourself in your own imaginative visions and dreams. These might teach you a lot about yourself.

Towards the middle of the week, you may feel optimistic and enthusiastic about talking and exchanging ideas, learning new things and making plans, especially with friends or in group activity. However, some of your ideas may be very personal to you and could meet opposition from friends or the majority of others in a group. In your desire to express yourself and be creative, you may need to take care not to get carried away with the scale of your plans. You may grasp the overall picture well, but could tend to lose sight of important details that you may dismiss as small and, therefore, insignificant and unimportant. Friends or groups may be able to help you pay more attention to detail. You may need to take care to ensure you do not come across as over-confident or arrogant in conversations with friends or in group discussions. You may enjoy a bit of verbal jousting with others. But where your own views differ from the collective position of a group, you might need to remain open to others’ point of view and ready to adjust your own where necessary or appropriate.

At the end of the week, you may have a desire to spend time doing what you want to do with the people you want to be with. But this could conflict with your sense of duty and discipline to someone else, or other people, and you might resent this. But if you neglect your responsibilities to have fun, you may not really feel able to enjoy yourself. You may somewhat isolated from others. Or you might feel you are surrounded by people you cannot relate to. However, this is only likely to be a temporary problem.

Love:
As the middle of the week approaches, if you are single, you may be attracted to someone you meet through a friend or in a group situation. However, you may need to take care to ensure you do not come across as over-confident or arrogant in your approach to them. You may enjoy a bit of playful verbal jousting as part of romance, but you may need to take care not to be misunderstood and to create differences of opinion or division.

At the end of the week, if you are single, you may feel a desire for romance. But you may lack confidence in your appeal to others. You may need to take care not to allow your fear or lack of confidence create barriers between yourself and someone you have affection for. If you are in a relationship, experiences with your partner may require you to confront parts of yourself you might rather not face. However, what you learn through this could help you to improve yourself and your relationship.

Career:
As the week gets off to a start, being yourself and harnessing your creativity could be the key to making and managing money. You might be able to express yourself creatively in your work, perhaps on a larger scale than before. Or the way you express yourself may help you to reach a wider audience. However, there could be something of a conflict between your desire to be creative and your need to earn money. You may feel you are being asked to compromise your creative expression for financial reasons. The key could be to work out the best compromise between both needs.

Your Cancer horoscope for May 2018

Between 13th and 19th May, if you don’t feel your life allows you room and scope for enough interaction with other people, you might feel determined to make changes that allow you more freedom to be with others. However, your desire to assert yourself in your own individual way could clash with your simultaneous need to share excitement and interaction with others. You could encounter people who seem to have a profound effect on you and make you feel like a different person. This could be welcome on one level. But you might also feel a need to be free of all restrictions and are likely to rebel against anything or anyone who tries to hold you back from being, or expressing your individual self. You might feel that friends, groups or teams you are part of could be holding you back from achieving all you feel capable of. Or you may feel a need to break free of some friendships and associations, or create new ones. You might feel a need to break free of others who seem to want you to be part of something with them, in order to enjoy more freedom to be yourself. You may be determined to make changes in your life to address this dilemma, or to prevent your relationships with others from becoming stale and predictable. Another possibility is that change of some kind may seem to be forced upon you through your creative activity and relationships with others. However, this may be a sign from your environment that you need to change, or break away from something. However, you may also need to ensure you do not disrupt or damage friendships and associations that might be valuable to you.

At this time, if you are single, you may seek excitement and intimacy through romance. You may be powerfully attracted to someone you meet through a friend or in a group situation. Or a friendship may transform into something more passionate. But you may need to take care not to come across as too intense or assertive in your approach to possible partners. If you are in a relationship, you might feel a need for more excitement and intimacy. But you may need to take care not to put too much pressure on your partner, or your relationship to provide this. If you feel a relationship has become restrictive or is clashing with your need for personal freedom, independence and individual expression, you may need to address this dilemma. In work and business, you might feel a need to have freedom to assert yourself in your own individual way. You might be torn between a desire to work as part of a team with others and a need to operate more independently. You are likely to rebel against anything or anyone who tries to hold you back from being yourself and this could bring tension in teamwork. This might not be the best time for making business deals, as your differences with others may be difficult to reconcile. You may also be prone to take financial risks that could prove to be erroneous, or others may take financial risks that could affect you.

On, or soon after 15th May could be a favourable time for making new friends and joining or initiating new groups with people whose interests you may share. You might see this is a time of new beginnings for yourself and you may need to work out which friends, associates and groups you identify with most and feel you want to be part of. Joining together with a group of people, at this time, may help you to make a new start of some kind.

From 16th May, you are likely to have a strong sense of your own values, but could come into conflict with someone, or need to make a joint decision concerning a shared financial interest. Or you might disagree with a partner over how to use joint resources. This may not be a good time to take out a loan, or undertake financial negotiations. It could be beneficial to put your energy into working in partnership with someone on a project you both feel enthusiastic about. Working together with someone else might enable you to achieve results more quickly, make a more powerful impact and earn more money. You may encounter someone who could have a powerful or transforming effect on you, either through attraction, competition or conflict. You might need to take care not to be overly assertive or dominant in romance or relationships. But you could be intensely attracted to someone and a deep, powerful connection may be possible.

If you have practical everyday chores to attend to, or have been engaged in a new exercise regime or diet and hope to achieve a particular result in terms of health and fitness, or if you are seeking to complete any work projects, it may be beneficial to do all you can to bring any of these to fruition by 29th May.

More About Cancer

Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac. As we move through the signs, this symbolises the part of our journey in which we become aware of our origins and inheritance. This reflects how much your nature is coloured by conditioning and habits formed early on in life. Your ruling planet is the Moon, which is concerned with your instinctive reactions to life and this gives you a responsive, reflective, receptive nature. In mythology, the Moon deity was goddess of fertility, the mother who nurtures and nourishes. This is why those born under this sign tend to be maternal and motivated to look after, protect and feed their young within the safety of a home. Yours is the sign of the Crab and its symbol suggests the shape of the crab or a mother’s breasts. Your element is Water, which makes you sympathetic, emotional and imaginative. Cancer is a Cardinal sign which means you can take the initiative and your sensitivity is your driving force. You are shrewd, thrifty and tenacious. You can sometimes be a little moody, impressionable and defensive. But you respond to life in a kind, caring, sympathetic manner. You may be interested in the past and history and are likely to have a good memory.
