Cancer Weekly Horoscope from February 6 to February 12
Your heart is flying free—and not just because there are zero planets retrograde. On Tuesday and Wednesday, love planet Venus dances into a friendly formation with liberated Uranus, making you uncharacteristically open to taking a chance on romance. And since Venus is in Pisces and your optimistic, open-minded ninth house, there’s no telling WHO you’ll click with. If you haven’t had much success on the apps recently, techie Uranus coaxes you to swipe, swipe again. Or lean in to the communal planet’s networking powers and go circulate with your friends. You shine in the company of your people, Cancer, since their presence boosts your confidence. Coupled Crabs, take the lead with date-planning early this week. Even if you’re well past the honeymoon stage, challenge yourself to find an event worth getting out of the house together to attend. The couple that plays together, stays together.
Friday could bring a more decisive moment, however, when for the third (and final!) time since December, mindful Mercury syncs up with all-or-nothing Pluto in Capricorn. Sitting on the fence feels downright painful under these skies. Sensitive soul that you are, you never want to hurt anyone’s feelings but there’s a chance that the path you choose may upset someone who was hoping for a different outcome. Here’s a reminder to all you caring Cancers out there: You are not responsible for other people’s emotions. Even if you WANTED to control them, you couldn’t. So allow people to have their reactions and don’t rush to make it all better—especially not at your own expense.
A spicy chapter in your love life opens on Saturday as messenger Mercury wings into Aquarius and your eighth house of intimacy, seduction and mergers of both the erotic and budgetary kind. On the financial front, this Mercury transit can inspire you to pool resources with a partner or make future-oriented changes to your portfolio. Whether it’s your cold, hard cash or your warm, tender heart, this is the time to get way more serious about long-range (versus short-term) gains. With mindful Mercury at the helm, you won’t be happy with noncommittal types OR stagnant investments, so be proactive about pursuing things with real growth potential.
