2012: Cancer Overview
New beginnings have indeed arrived in your favor with the onset of 2012, Cancer. Although the biggest changes in the love realm won't arrive until autumn, romance will return as a central theme for you in 2012 - just when you'd started to give up hope of anything new ever returning to your life! Although Pluto has been working on deeply transforming your partnership sector since 2008 (forcing you to shed the outmoded), you were indeed beginning to wonder if anything new would ever come to fill the void. And alas, it shall!
Saturn has been weighing heavily on your family and home sector over the past few years, bringing plenty of challenges your way. On one hand, this has been an incredibly grounding time filled with enough reality checks to put you firmly in touch with truth. It's also revealed the importance of your roots, although it may have brought a wake of suffering, either through loss of relatives or a major strain on family relations. Take heart, dear Cancer - all is about to lighten up as Saturn moves out of a difficult aspect to your stars. When this cosmic taskmaster moves into your love and creativity sector in November, you'll get serious about making more time for romance and self-expression. This also means you'll be disciplined about your passions instead of throwing your precious energy around willy-nilly!
Expect to stay remarkably connected with others throughout 2012. Mars will be activating your communication for the first half of the year, keeping all your communication gadgets continually buzzing. During the first four months, the red planet will be retrograde, bringing mixed messages and retrospective reverie galore. Cancer folks are forever prone to dwelling in a nostalgic world, and this will be even more acute in 2012. The future is glorious - but first you've got to root yourself firmly in the present!
Go to work, get the kiddo to day care, attend that committee meeting, pick up something for dinner -- small wonder some days your energy wanes. A lunar eclipse kicks off a cycle in which it's wise to take more frequent breaks to rest and revive.
You can't quite manage your energy flow today -- which could be a bad thing, if you've got lots on your plate. If it's an easy day, just let things flow however they want. If not, get help fast!
National Brown Bag It Day is a great opportunity to make your homemade lunch a treat (on occasion, you've been known to brown bag it as an excuse to clean out your fridge). Today, make a beautiful sandwich or put a tasty casserole in a cute container.
On a day like this, you'd probably like to do nothing at all. So see how close you can get to staying still. Rather than a run, enjoy a leisurely walk. Instead of racing around the mall, order some things online. Take a break.
