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.

Everyone you meet should be in a really good or a really bad mood today. Whichever one it is, remember what you tell your tyke: Share the joy and stash the crankiness. Then, you become part of the solution.
You feel somewhat more withdrawn today -- and there's nothing wrong with that! Sometimes you need to kick back on your own or with close family to let your emotional reserves fill back up.
Shades of grey have no place in your life right now. Why go for the turkey burger if you really want the kobe beef? Why get the dressing on the side if you know you don't really need it at all? Listen to your intuition and make your choice based on what it tells you.
Don't mess with tradition! If you wear the same blouse to all of your big meetings, for example, or have a signature shade of lipstick you can't bear to part with, this is no time to rock the boat.
