Your Cancer 2017 horoscope: What’s ahead for your Sun sign?
Adapted from The AstroTwins’ 2017 Planetary Planner
Home, sweet home, Cancer. That’s where you’ll be for the bulk of 2017, as expansive Jupiter travels through Libra and your fourth house of roots until October 10. Family and household matters are the central themes, perfect for your domestic sign. Last year’s vibe was more social, as you explored new friendships, neighborhoods and interests. Now, your energy turns inward, as your personal life takes precedence. Meantime, Saturn rounds out its last year in Sagittarius and your sixth house of health and work, pushing you to get more structured about your wellness and habits. Sure, it may not be the most glamorous year you’ve had, but it can be a deeply grounding one.
In the fall, Jupiter sails into Scorpio and ignites your fifth house of love, passion and creativity. The heat rises and burns well into 2018—and on December 19, structured Saturn marches into Capricorn and your committed partnership house. Do we hear bells…or plans for a vow renewal? All the more reason to solidify your inner world in the first three-quarters of the year—you’ll be ready to come out of your shell and enjoy some fabulous company before the calendar turns again.
Your feelings can be big and all-consuming during this sensitive cycle, but you don’t want to drown in your own emotion ocean.
Your feelings can be big and all-consuming during this sensitive cycle, but you don’t want to drown in your own emotion ocean. This heart-opening Jupiter transit puts you squarely in touch with your deepest feelings—not that your sign necessarily needs any help with that. But you keep some important parts of yourself safeguarded far within, fearing that others will hurt or reject you if they see your sensitive underbelly. Outspoken Jupiter won’t let you hide your tenderness. This is a good thing, Cancer. When you try to suppress your caring nature, you can come across as intense, angry, needy or outright exhausting. Other times you lapse into “overfunctioning,” playing caretaker to the world at your own expense.
Cottage industry anyone? With enterprising Jupiter in your domestic fourth house until October, your household could become a bustling hub of industry. Maybe you’ll start a home-based business or flex your hours to work remotely. Who cares if you don’t shower before noon when your productivity is sky-high? If you do your best work in an elastic waistband with a cat on your lap, this could be the year to launch that Etsy store or turn Chateau Crab into a satellite office. With entrepreneurial Jupiter at the helm, you might even make money on the Airbnb circuit, renting out your place (or a room in it) to travelers.
LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS
Getting cozy? Until October, lucky Jupiter is in your domestic fourth house, which could spell babies, moving in together or more emotional bonding. You could also be a little bit insular now, so if love doesn’t take flight right away, don’t despair. In October, Jupiter swings into Scorpio, heating up your glamorous and amorous fifth house. Hello, passionate and lusty vibes—and a possible pregnancy. Meanwhile, transformational Pluto enters its ninth full year of a 16-year journey through Capricorn and your committed relationship house, shifting your closest ties. In late December, structured Saturn joins Pluto here until 2020, paving the path for a strong and lasting union. An August eclipse in your intimate eighth house could also take things to a deep and permanent level.
MONEY & CAREER
Change is in the air! This year’s new eclipse series on the Leo/Aquarius axis sweeps through your money and work sectors, which could bring job changes, windfalls and a whole new approach to finances. Meantime, structured Saturn is in your orderly sixth house, helping you plan, prioritize and delegate. You’re learning tough lessons about taking on too much, so if you’re the classic “overfunctioning” Cancer, it’s time to banish stress and get some proper backup on Team Crab. Demand that the slackers do their share! New work opportunities could involve wellness, data management, a “green” business or a position in the service sector. With entrepreneurial Jupiter in your domestic zone, you could succeed with a home-based business.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
Drop and give ’em twenty! Taskmaster Saturn is in Sagittarius and your sixth house of health and fitness until December, sounding the call for serious self-care. You may be battling fatigue, stress or a health-related challenge. Or maybe you’re just recognizing that you can’t run on fumes anymore. Two eclipses in Leo blaze through your second house of daily habits, revamping how you allocate your time and energy.
FAMILY & FRIENDS
Bring on the bonding! Lucky and expansive Jupiter visits Libra and your domestic fourth house until October 10, a banner year for buying or selling real estate, remodeling your home and expanding your clan. A female relative, possibly your mother or a maternal figure, could play an important role. Your relationship could go through a powerful evolution. You may be a bit of a homebody until October, so plan to host some dinner parties or pull out the sleeper sofa for out-of-town guests. In the fall, your social life picks up speed with fun and creative new outlets.
