An unexpected job offer begins a new partnership that heals your fretting. Famously Thomas Wolfe said you can’t go home again, but 2017 offers a reprieve, a miracle, as you manage to regain, if not home literally, then your roots, your comfort, your foundations. And in the spirit of true and accurate history – which Cancer is all about – I must credit the writer who actually said this phrase first, Ella Winter. It was she who, in conversation with Wolfe, remarked: “Don’t you know you can’t go home again?” Wolfe then asked Winter for permission to use the phrase as the title of his book, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Working with someone at, or closer to, home, and clearly defining schedules and work routines, will heal all. This forecast applies to the United States too (Cancer Sun, Cancer Jupiter) so around December 29: Expect the unexpected on the international stage. Not any time soon, but eventually, this will work things out for the better. All in the spirit of cooperation.
As 2016 comes to a close, with its crazy communications – and non-communications – it is time to call a truce. To grab onto any olive branch and not let go! Home has not really been the haven you desire and a kind of battle may have begun for you, too. The fantastic news – which I am so happy to tell you! – is that, as 2017 begins, it is a whole different ballgame with partners. Out with the old, and in with the new.
Around the first day of the new year everyone leaves the past behind. You agree to do this.
It is not an immediate happy ending. (I am your astrologer, and I must be completely honest with you.) It is really a wait-and-see time. But it is going in a positive direction. You need to trust this! You do best to let the people in your life figure it out on their own, and to take care of their own business. Just because you don’t know the final outcome yet – trust me, this is not a bad thing. You have plenty of figuring out on your own to do, particularly to do with your domestic scene.
In terms of how you are being perceived, please, above all, be patient with your self. You may feel as if no one is “getting” you. This clears up and move forward positively as March begins. You can decide now, dear Cancer, how you would like it to be, and commit to it.
Do you know how I see it happening? Through partnerships and relationships, many of them new.
For in your contractual seventh house of relationships you have:
Brilliant thoughtful Mercury, in and out of retrograde until January 8
Explosive planet of your authentic power Pluto
And that exciting new Capricorn Moon on Thursday, December 29 – powerful new agreements will be made at the beginning of 2017!
These are awesomely positive and powerful forces blessing you in the seventh house areas traditionally ruled by partnership-oriented Libra:
Partnerships in work and love
Live-in or steady relationships
Bitter enemies in the open
Dealings with the public
Discussions about design, beauty, harmony
Co-dependent no more! You will learn to separate.
In love Cancer: to stay in love and to keep the relationship together.
You are going to feel better one-on-one than in groups and that’s okay. Some of this has to do with the “PR” that you will be managing, as you really are changing your public identity.
Mid-month – on Thursday, January 12, to be exact – there is a full Moon – your emotional ruler – in your sign and in your first house: triple whammy. You may just burst out of your skin on that day. A word of warning: You will feel emotional. Also there will be a bit of a public spotlight on you, so any potential meltdowns may go viral…!
Then, a financial opportunity of a lifetime will be handed to you at the end of January. This opportunity is well deserved, and in honor of your work and experience. It will make you proud of yourself. Great news to hang onto as you go through the drama of family or home – do I stay or do I go? – again and again.
Before I get to your financial success, let us address this drama.
Neptune is in your ninth house of the far away – go west, young man! It is the house of travel and foreign cultures and mind-expansion. And Neptune is the glittering sea, the glorious mist of deception, the truth – in dreams, a twisted Fun House, broken mirrors.
So regard it is a bit of a sea fog over your vision concerning matters of “going west” or busting out. You will feel a little unclear as to where you should be; what your proper environment should be. Be careful about making plans or promises in terms of another home or property. This includes anything from renovations to redecorating, to sublets, to temporary housing, to moving, to staying. Neptune sees to it that you change your mind!
You are very psychic and sensitive and you absorb what is around you. This makes environment more important than anything. And I’m saying it’s got a bit extreme. To the point where it is ruling you. The thought of the perfect environment is stopping your life. Let it go. Stop running away. It’s okay to be with yourself. To be where you are now.
You know that song Marilyn sang so breathlessly, “I wanna be loved by you, nobody else but you, I wanna be loved by you –” Can you hear it? This is what the world will be singing to all crabs this January. Admirers abound. You are blessed with desire and desirability. As the new year begins, to put it bluntly, you have your pick of the crop.
Single Cancer, if you want to be with someone, go for it!
And dear Cancer, you really are so intimate. Well, you know that. I’m just praising that part of you. It’s what secretly all of us love the most about you. Life is never superficial for you. You feel it deeply, every moment.
Because you are a crab, and you come from the bottom of the sea. You are also ancient years old. Five hundred million years old and counting. Now, how could that ever be superficial?
Forgive me for telling you this again and again – the five hundred million years part – it’s just I am always astonished by it. Over and over. It’s always something I’ve got to tell – it’s such exciting news.
I wish I were five hundred million years old.
You are a survivalist, and it is pure Darwinian evolution.
Never superficial. Sometimes silly. You have a delightful sense of funny. You have the best laugh. You crack people up again and again. You have given a lot of Silly to the child or children or baby pet you love so much — whom you would do anything for, and you already have (new bills coming in soon!) — but now it is time to bring it into the grownup world.
It is important to play and exercise in this world, too. And you have been bearing a huge burden. Your pain threshold has got awfully high. You are terribly concerned with your career. And your relationship life is due for a makeover.
Yes, you may be tired from the year – and exhausting, emotional last few years – thanks to all the tests planet Saturn put you through – but you need to regard yourself as a valuable commodity.
And you really have missed some people. You’ve been sitting on your own planet for such a long time now. Even married and attached Cancers, you have been in your own world. You are extremely loved, no doubt about that. So, you are stepping out of your isolation and you are ready to love and play again. You will look different at the end of this time, too.
You will look younger by the end of 2017 than you do now, and fabulously successful.
Brava, my dear Crab. You will do the right thing.
P.S. Happy Holidays! First time ever: Your YEAR AHEAD 2017 forecast! It’s free, and it’s here.
And perhaps time for your own private session?
If you’re hesitant, or haven’t been read before, please read what my clients say.
I look forward to speaking with you, Cancer. Please take care.
With love, Madalyn
