Cancer: Love & Relationships
2013: Cancer Love
Your love life is about to get incredibly passionate in 2013, Cancer. You've been preparing for the kind of all-consuming, soul-stirring and dangerously delicious experience of romance for the past two years. At the same time, you're craving greater emotional security than ever. Are these needs mutually exclusive? Not necessarily, but they will require that you only give your heart away to someone you trust, even if the chemistry is off the charts. It's sometimes hard to determine if you're building something to last or burning through a flame that will die as quickly as it started. You've certainly had your fair share of both versions of love over the past few years (perhaps even in the same relationship).
You may be surprised in 2013 how a hot-and-heavy love affair suddenly moves into deep unchartered waters. You'll be asked to put in the work to make it last, but you know it's worth it. This is actually what you want more than anything, despite your fears of getting hurt. Give it a chance if your gut tells you it's the right person. This could be your chance to finally achive the level of intimacy that makes life infinitely magical on a daily basis, despite the inherent struggle.
This is a year to let go of all of the pain and baggage from the past so you can embrace the powerful potential of a fulfilling relationship in the present. This may involve some heavy digging and relinquishing of the old skeletons from the closet, but trust that it's worth the effort. You must free yourself from any residual grievances and resentments from lovers in your past or your heart will never truly be open to someone new (or to your present partner if you're already hitched). Don't let negative nostalgia sabotage your love life, Cancer. That's such an old story for you at this point.

Don't be surprised if you find yourself looking to the future at some point today. You and your other half may find that you share a similar wide-screen vision for your little tyke. Dream on, and add to the scenario if you wish.
You are struck by an impulsive idea early today that may color the rest of the month. Let yourself indulge -- you may find that you're out of ideas by tomorrow, so this is your time to shine.
Go through your closets before you set out to buy something. You probably already have spare potholders, an extra whisk or a rubber spatula or two tucked away in storage. While you're at it, clean out your stuff and make a big donation pile.
The people around you won't stop asking for things until you put your foot down ... so put it down! Do what you can, then tell your pal you can't color her hair -- or refuse your sister's request to borrow your favorite shoes. Stand your ground.
