Cancer: Career & Finance
2012: Cancer Career
The continued presence of future-forward Uranus in your career sector will insist you remain open to the big picture and be willing to put yourself out there in a rebellious way. Experimenting, taking risks and being a pioneer in your chosen field are all requirements in 2012! No longer can you remain in the safe protection of your shell. As the old adage goes: Life starts where your comfort zone ends. When Pluto and Uranus make an exact square in June, you'll be forced to make a major change if your career still isn't where you want it to be.
With action planet Mars spending most of the year in the workaholic sign of Virgo and activating your communication sector, you can expect your inbox to practically overflow; you won't get a break from networking until summer. In fact, you may have to impose your own tech fasts just to preserve your sanity! Especially during the first quarter of the year while Mars is retrograde, you'll be craving many pauses and will need to power off once in a while. Use the first few months of 2012 to reflect on where you've been and what you've learned; then, apply those lessons to your future goals. Have you written everything down? If not, now is the time to get clear in very deliberate terms what you want out of your career.
Another wave of eclipse patterns will rock your work sector this spring and summer. The new Moon solar eclipse in May creates a domino effect of long-lasting changes in both the way you work and the kind of work you'll be doing. Are you utilizing all your talents, Cancer? If not, this is your breakout year. All the planets are begging you to take a chance and expand your concept of what you believe is possible. The cosmos will reward you for any risks you take on its behalf!
Of course your tyke (and all their friends) appreciate your talent in the kitchen. But maybe you should add more solid nutrition to their treats. This is a great day to source new recipes that are tasty and good for them.
Even if you're not quite finished with things, it's still a good time to clean up after yourself. Your energy is better spent on smaller tasks, though a big rush is on the way.
Finish the month doing one thing that you regularly avoid: connecting. It may be against your religion to wake on a weekend before 10, but make it to Sunday breakfast with your best friend, and delight in the wonders of hollandaise and runny yolks.
No wonder you're having a hard time getting dressed in the morning -- look at the state of your drawers. Dump everything old, then sort, refold, donate and mend. You'll feel like you just bought a new wardrobe.
