Cancer Monthly Horoscope


March 2017

Oh, the places you'll go! You're a Crab on the move this month, as the Sun communes in Pisces and your worldly ninth house until March 20. The spirit of adventure is coursing through your veins, inspiring a risk-taking cycle. Swing out of your comfort zone, especially since it's gotten a bit insular this year. Book some travel or sign up for a workshop. Anything the refreshes your perspective is welcome now!
 
Like it or not, you may be ejected out of that confining crabshell anyhow. Expansive Jupiter, which is in Libra and your domestic sector, will have two interplanetary dust-ups this month with changemaker Uranus and transformational Pluto. Jupiter, which is retrograde in Libra from February 6 until June 9, is already inciting shifts in your personal life. While you're pondering your next moves (babies? Address change? Improved family dynamics?), these cosmic curveballs may force you to think on your feet.

The tense aspects could wildly disrupt balance in both personal and political arenas. Over the course of a year, Jupiter will have three rounds of these celestial clashes. The last two were in November and December, so expect another round of whatever came up over the holidays. Hopefully this midpoint will bring more resolution than revolution—but it's likely to be a mix of those two at best.
 
The first disruption arrives on March 2, when Jupiter forms a tense opposition to radical Uranus, which is in Aries and your tenth house of career. Hello, work-life imbalance. And hello, understatement of the century. In the best-case scenario, you could have exciting changes in your personal AND professional arenas. The only problem? It's too much to handle all at once. This is one of those times when you'll have to scramble to make it all work. You could find out you're pregnant a week before your band is scheduled to tour Europe. Or you put an offer on a home only to get a life-changing job offer on another continent. A family crisis could heat up just as you're about to give a major presentation at a global summit. That kind of thing, Cancer. Instead of walking out on your family or quitting your job in a stress-fueled fury, you'll need to be innovative—and honest. Let people know where you're at so they can HELP you, o’caretaking one! You may be the zodiac's mother, but even you need support sometimes.
 
Jupiter in Libra and erratic Uranus in Aries are traveling in close opposition all month, a rare occurrence that only happens once every 14 years. This is the second of three Jupiter-Uranus face-offs. (The first was December 26, 2016, and the next will be September 28, 2017.) Keep calm as best you can—it could take until later this year for you to find equilibrium on the home front and with work.
 
The perfect moment to speak up arrives with the March 12 Virgo full moon, which spotlights your communication house. Open dialogue can help you achieve much-needed understanding. A neighbor, sibling or local friend could be in the spotlight now. You could also decide to take a more active role in your community, spearheading a grassroots effort or becoming a fixture on the cultural scene. Kindred spirits can crop up during this full moon, so test your synergy with a trial project or a coffee date—you could discover a fruitful meeting of the minds!

Your career guns ahead into the number one spot after March 20, when the Sun shifts into Aries and your professional tenth house. Between now and April 19, prioritize your goals and ambitious endeavors. The March 27 Aries new moon offers a jaw-dropping chance to skyrocket to success, because the charismatic Sun, charming Venus, expressive Mercury AND trailblazing Uranus are all clustered in this sign. Wow! This lunation could bring a leadership opportunity, a promotion or a chance to make your voice heard. While new moons can take up to six months to unfold, you'll certainly lay the groundwork for those big dreams today. With innovator Uranus in the picture, you could receive acclaim for thinking outside the box. No need to play the "company man" role to get ahead. You emanate authority and can leverage that to fearlessly succeed on your own terms.
 
Alas, the month ends with one last emotional challenge. On March 30, Jupiter makes the second of three harsh squares to control freak Pluto, which is in Capricorn and your partnership house. Power struggles could erupt in your closest ties. The first of these Jupiter-Pluto fights was on November 24—Thanksgiving in the U.S.—so learn from any Turkey Day takedowns that occurred then. Codependence alert: Attempting to caretake, meddle or otherwise enmesh yourself with anyone will backfire. If you're planning a visit with family, book a hotel instead of hosting or staying at theirs. Mixing family and romantic relationships is not advised today, as you could be caught uncomfortably in the middle. (Save the intros for another day!) People will be projecting their issues on each other wildly now, so busy yourself with the most impersonal of tasks to avoid getting sucked into the maelstrom!
