2012: Cancer Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

2012 Overview for all of Cancer. Getting serious about relationships figures strongly in 2012, dear Cancer. Some of you will find, or have recently found, a partner close to home. From October forward, commitment becomes a hot topic. Relationships that don't live up to their potential are likely to be questioned. Some of you will be dealing with gossip or outside pressures. In fact, you can feel quite a bit of pressure coming from many angles this year, including from family, career, and partners, and the urge to rebel and go your own way can be exceptionally strong. You may feel pulled in different directions, and it can be hard to find a balance and to fill your own personal needs. However, family pressures and difficulties around the home are likely to decrease in the last quarter of the year. You continue to find joy through group associations and friendships in the first half of 2012. You can make some wonderful friends through your work and health and fitness routines. Alternatively, friends can be instrumental in finding work for you. The pace of your daily life is quick and sometimes hectic at this point in your life. Dealing with the past figures strongly from May forward - some of you could find yourselves stuck there, emotionally speaking! The inner hermit in you can be stimulated at this point, and you could find that you're making some sacrifices (quite willingly) for others. You are not necessarily unsociable at this time, but rather you're quite content to do your own thing. The key to fulfillment is to recognize and honor your spiritual path as well as your need for alone time and reflection, but to avoid neglecting your responsibilities in the process. Increasingly, you're finding the need to bring more creativity and less routine to your career. Past loves can reappear, whether they do so in the flesh or memories fill your mind, in May and June. Love may be complicated because of this, and you will need to decide whether or not they're in your past for good reason.

2012 Details.

Until June 11th, Jupiter continues to transit your solar eleventh house, potentially bringing benefits and fresh energy to networking activities, the formulation of broad, long-term goals, acquaintances, clubs, and organizations in your life. You can rely on your friends for their help and support, and your circle of friends could most certainly increase during this fruitful transit. Your long-term goals and wishes tend to be broad and perhaps unusual or ahead of the times just now. You may particularly enjoy dreaming up ideas for the future. Achieving your goals tends to come more easily now. Others especially value your advice and often turn to you for help. You could become more active with friends or in your community. You may have opportunities to join or lead clubs or groups. Group activities and associations could be avenues for fulfilling your own goals. You may take special joy in sharing a common cause or ideals with others. You are especially hopeful and more inclined to believe that if you wish it, it will be! Income from your business or career is likely to increase. You might find yourself more tolerant of others in general, and of differences in values. Reaching out beyond your personal circle can certainly open doors to you and bring joy into your life during this cycle. You might also expand your social circle through work, or while pursuing health goals. These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. Also, Jupiter can bring too much of a good thing at times, and you might find that your social agenda is crammed or that you have taken on more friends or goals than you can reasonably handle.

This can also be a time when work and friendships are tied together. Some might establish new friendships through work, and others might find work through a friend, for example.

From June 11th forward, Jupiter transits your solar twelfth house. This transit brings benefits to activities that take place "behind the scenes" or otherwise privately, as well as in the soul. This is a cycle in which you become more compassionate, empathetic, and sensitive, or get in deeper touch with these traits. Jupiter in the twelfth house is said to offer one spiritual protection. This is a time when you can rid yourself of self-destructive tendencies, deep-seated fears, and deeply-ingrained tendencies towards guilty feelings. You are more able to get in touch with your subconscious mind, and in fact, confronting your fears can be quite pleasurable during this period. Charity, giving/donating anonymously, volunteering, and helping others without expectation of reward will be most fulfilling during this cycle. Helping others actually helps you. Work that involves serving others may begin now and bring you much joy. Your dreaming world may be especially rich, lighter, helpful, and more intuitive. Meditation and retreats may be particularly helpful to you now, as they regenerate and invigorate your spirit. Much pleasure and growth might be found in solitude and contemplation. You may pick up New Age studies, spirituality, dream interpretation, or research during this cycle. Some people enter into a private romance during this cycle. In general, help seems to be there when you need it. You are building or rebuilding your inner faith now. These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. There may be some sacrifices required in your work, or you could be doing some work behind the scenes during this cycle.

The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar twelfth house, from June 11th to October 4th. (This transit lasts until June 2013).

Jupiter transits sextile your Sun from January to March, making it an excellent time to start new long-term projects. You might find that you feel subtly more vital, confident, and optimistic about the future at this time. It's a good time to resolve conflicts, as you are not as easily angered by trivial matters.

Saturn transits your solar fourth house again this year, but ends its transit in October 2012. Saturn here urges you to get serious about home, family, and domestic concerns. You are building your nest, not in a "plumping your nest" sort of way. In fact, you may be stripping some things away--perhaps even downsizing or de-cluttering--and adding structure to your domestic life. You face issues surrounding your attachments to the past. Sometimes this manifests as literal re-organization of your home. Moving house is not typically associated with this transit as it would if, for example, Uranus was the transiting planet. If moves are made, you might encounter some resistance in yourself. This is not a time when you feel particularly brave in the outer world. However, reorganization in your home, and more importantly, in your soul, embodies the true nature of this transit. Many will go through a major "spring cleaning" inside. Limitations that came from early family conditioning will be brought to the fore. At first, there may be some frustration with your life to date, and how you have limited your opportunities because of early conditioning. A feeling of being alone and unsupported in life may dominate now. You may experience some distancing or frustrations regarding your parents. Family obligations may get in the way of your experience of pleasure and of the achievement of your personal goals. There may be some emotional distancing as well in your home. Your current living conditions may feel restrictive, limiting, too small or cramped (physically and/or emotionally). Delays and slowdowns may be experienced in the areas of health, mobility, and career. However, all of these things are occurring now in order that you face your responsibilities, become more self-sufficient, and more organized. Ultimately, you are learning to rely on yourself and to take care of things that you may have previously neglected but that have undermined your confidence in yourself and in your life. The acute pressures of this transit have passed for you as you wrap things up and prepare for a new Saturn transit in October.

From October forward, Saturn transits your solar fifth house. This transit lasts until 2015, and is typically most strongly felt in the first year (for you, from October 2012 to October 2013). Saturn's influence is rather somber and serious, but also responsible and practical. You are getting serious about fifth house matters: romance, relationships with children, your creativity, and pleasure. Serious about pleasure? Yes, indeed. While you may not spend a whole lot of time living it up at parties, bars, or entertainment venues, you are likely to take your hobbies more seriously. In fact, this is an excellent period for monetizing any personal hobby--turning it into a business, even if it's on the side. If you have children, they may need more discipline or structure than they previously did. Some Cancers will be welcoming children into their lives and discovering all of the responsibilities that come with it. Others who already have children may find that they're at an age that requires more attention and discipline, or structure. In the romance department, Saturn's influence can go either way. For some, romance may be felt to be lacking or a romantic relationship could be more practical than fun. Tests or pressures on an existing romance could figure now. For those of you who have recently entered a romance, you are beginning to look at it more seriously and critically. For others, a romantic relationship stabilizes and becomes more serious. Some of you will meet a new romantic interest who is perhaps older or mature, thus meeting Saturn through a partner. Because Saturn rules the area of your chart that rules committed partnerships as opposed to the casual romances ruled by the fifth house, some of you could find a lover is stuck in the romance phase of a relationship and may not be moving towards commitment as quickly as you'd like.

Pluto is beginning or continuing its transit of your solar seventh house this year for most of you, and you are likely to be facing the deeper, and possibly darker, elements of your own personality through your close interactions with another. There can be power struggles and the facing of fears before eventual healing.

For those of you born June 27-30 and those with an Ascendant of 5-1/2 to 9-1/2 degrees Cancer, intensity is part of the picture this year with Pluto opposing your Sun or Ascendant. Changes in the way you relate to others are afoot. Power struggles are possible in close personal relationships.  Your relationships tend to have distinct themes revolving around personal power, domination, jealousy, manipulation, or self-will. Your biggest enemy during this period is resentment, which can act to eat away your confidence and healthy state of mind. There may be conflicts between partnership goals and family or domestic goals this year, and the challenge could serve to "initiate" you into this new phase of your life. As well, the influence of Pluto entering your seventh house can point to taking a casual romantic affair to a new level.

For those born July 1, major changes in the structure of your close personal relationships, and in your attitude towards them, are in store. Some of you might already feel these matters rumbling or brewing under the surface.

For those of you born June 22-29, and those with a Cancer Ascendant of 0 to 8-1/2 degrees, Uranus begins or continues its lengthy transit of your solar tenth house. Your career direction changes and your relationships with authority figures may be more challenging during this long-term cycle. Do your best to avoid impulsive decision-making that is built upon your desire to be a free spirit. You may recognize talents that you never knew you had, and this can be a sudden, exciting discovery. For those of you born June 30-July 1, Uranus continues to transit your solar ninth house. If you do get a chance to travel, which could come up quite unexpectedly, unusual and eye-opening experiences may be in store for you. The people that you meet this year tend to stir you into new ways of thinking. You are less inclined towards a personal philosophy that is traditional now, and more attracted to more avant-garde or simply progressive belief systems.

The influence of Neptune is similar to last year for most of you. Neptune continues to transit your solar eighth house, as it has been doing for a number of years. You may encounter some challenges regarding shared finances or property. A loan or other form of support may come through unexpectedly, even in a mysterious fashion. Intimate relationships can be highly colorful, perhaps with spiritual undercurrents, but possibly a little confusing. The boundaries that are normally drawn between what is yours and what is mine may be blurred somewhat this year. A partner could have unsettled finances, and this could impact your own finances. Do be wary of anything that even slightly resembles fraud. Lending others money may be a lesson in frustration during this cycle. However, for those born June 22-25 ( or 0-3 degrees Cancer Ascendant), Neptune begins its transit of your solar ninth house and trines your Sun/Ascendant this year. Your overall perspective on life begins to significantly expand, and you are more willing to embrace unusual, mystical, or spiritual philosophies. Neptune's influence can be quite magical this year. It stimulates your imagination and intuition. Your words are more poetic and perhaps even inspirational. Participation in the arts, music, entertainment, community service, spiritual practice, or religious pursuits can be enhanced this year. Do what you dream of doing, and trust your inner knowledge and intuition at the point before it gets distorted by logic. Refreshing interludes such as a vacation or other relaxing forms of entertainment are more possible now. Others see you in a sweet light--you are more charming than usual, and your artistic, creative, and compassionate side is apparent and most appreciated.

Chiron is transiting trine your Sun/Ascendant this year. This influence is a subtly healing one. Others look upon you with more respect, tolerance, and acceptance. You don't feel the need to prove yourself, and that feels good. You have the chance to shine, largely because you are projecting yourself with self-respect and modesty at once. You are especially appealing and charming during this transit just by being yourself. Opportunities--both personal and professional--are likely to present themselves as a result. You are not looking for credit for what you do, which frees you up to get it anyhow! New friendships are likely to emerge this year--supportive and easygoing ones.

Eclipses in 2012 fall in your solar sixth and twelfth houses, and your fifth and eleventh houses, this year. Circumstances urge you to rid yourself of guilt about under-performing, and to develop faith and trust in a larger more spiritual plan. It's time to let go of some of your fears that you are not doing enough, to develop more compassion and understanding of others, and to be humble, feeling safe in the knowledge that you (and others) are not perfect. It's time to let go of some of your obsessions with rules, details, and fears of not doing things perfectly. There could be changes necessary in your job or health routines. You can use this surge of emotional energy to make positive changes to your routines. Do something to improve your work conditions if they are annoying you. Get going on your exercise or nutrition program that you know you have to do in order to feel more balanced. Additionally, you will be learning about letting go of your attachment to the drama of romance and personal relationships, as well as your willfulness. You are called upon to learn about the value of the team. You may need to give freedom to your romantic partner instead of expecting him or her to follow a script of your own making. You learn the value of brotherly love and the benefits of a sense of belonging to a community. Events are such that you move towards a more objective approach to your life and you cultivate true friendships. A romantic affair may undergo deep, rewarding changes. If love is true, there's nothing to fear. The demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. Also possible, your children may be going through their own changes and "stages", and need more attention now.

From June to September, there may be some conflict between the demands of a partnership and the demands of career. Finding a balance between the two, instead of pushing or rebelling against either, is the challenge now.

A positive connection between your eleventh and seventh houses in March suggests that friendships can be especially supportive. A friend could be integral in achieving your goals, and partnering with a friend in some tangible way can be part of the picture this year. You might also enjoy a more goal-oriented, free-spirited, and tolerant relationship with an existing partner now--you tend to be "on the same page". Some of you may take a friendship into unexplored romantic territory, or meet a significant person through a friend or group association. (This may have already happened in the latter part of 2011). Romantic relationships can be more growth-oriented, forward-looking, and enthusiastic. Creative endeavors are likely to be quite successful. You are also more focused and ambitious when it comes to your work as well as health and fitness programs during this cycle. You feel inspired and motivated to take better care of yourself.

From March to August, Jupiter transits your solar eleventh house, potentially bringing benefits and fresh energy to networking activities, the formulation of broad, long-term goals, acquaintances, clubs, and organizations in your life. You can rely on your friends for their help and support, and your circle of friends could most certainly increase during this fruitful transit.

Also possible, your children may be going through their own changes and "stages", and need more attention now.

From June to September, although your overall state of mind is stable and productive, some restlessness is likely. Mundane tasks capture your attention, but the urge to get out and about is bound to grab hold of you as well. You may need to deal with frequent distractions.

Positive connections between your sixth and tenth houses in March can point to high productivity. Your sometimes Herculean efforts, paying close attention to performance and to details, will not go unrewarded! Some of your most natural talents--the things that come easy--also meet with reward and acceptance. Sometimes in life, those with their nose to the grindstone can be overlooked. Not so for you right now. The details and the "little things" make all the difference. Perfecting your particular craft is natural. Some of you may find that your career is moving towards a more service-oriented direction. As well, romantic relationships can be more growth-oriented, forward-looking, and enthusiastic. Creative endeavors are likely to be quite successful. You are also more focused and ambitious when it comes to your work as well as health and fitness programs during this cycle. You feel inspired and motivated to take better care of yourself.

Limitations that came from early family conditioning will be brought to the fore. At first, there may be some frustration with your life to date, and how you have limited your opportunities because of early conditioning. A feeling of being alone and unsupported in life may dominate now. You may experience some distancing or frustrations regarding your parents. Family obligations may get in the way of your experience of pleasure and of the achievement of your personal goals. There may be some emotional distancing as well in your home. Your current living conditions may feel restrictive, limiting, too small or cramped (physically and/or emotionally). Delays and slowdowns may be experienced in the areas of health, mobility, and career. However, all of these things are occurring now in order that you face your responsibilities, become more self-sufficient, and more organized. Ultimately, you are learning to rely on yourself and to take care of things that you may have previously neglected but that have undermined your confidence in yourself and in your life.

Uranus continues to transit your solar ninth house. If you do get a chance to travel, which could come up quite unexpectedly, unusual and eye-opening experiences may be in store for you. The people that you meet this year tend to stir you into new ways of thinking. You are less inclined towards a personal philosophy that is traditional now, and more attracted to more avant-garde or simply progressive belief systems.

The influence of Neptune is similar to last year. Neptune continues to transit your solar eighth house, as it has been doing for a number of years. You may encounter some challenges regarding shared finances or property. A loan or other form of support may come through unexpectedly, even in a mysterious fashion. Intimate relationships can be highly colorful, perhaps with spiritual undercurrents, but possibly a little confusing. The boundaries that are normally drawn between what is yours and what is mine may be blurred somewhat this year. A partner could have unsettled finances, and this could impact your own finances. Do be wary of anything that even slightly resembles fraud. Lending others money may be a lesson in frustration during this cycle.

Eclipses in 2012 fall in your solar fifth and eleventh houses this year. You will be learning about letting go of your attachment to the drama of romance and personal relationships, as well as your willfulness. You are called upon to learn about the value of the team. You may need to give freedom to your romantic partner instead of expecting him or her to follow a script of your own making. You learn the value of brotherly love and the benefits of a sense of belonging to a community. Events are such that you move towards a more objective approach to your life and you cultivate true friendships. A romantic affair may undergo deep, rewarding changes. If love is true, there's nothing to fear. The demands of your larger goals in life may have been eclipsing your pleasure-seeking activities. Also possible, your children may be going through their own changes and "stages", and need more attention now.

From June to September, although your overall state of mind is stable and productive, some restlessness is likely. Mundane tasks capture your attention, but the urge to get out and about is bound to grab hold of you as well. You may need to deal with frequent distractions.

Positive connections between your sixth and tenth houses in March can point to high productivity. Your sometimes Herculean efforts, paying close attention to performance and to details, will not go unrewarded! Some of your most natural talents--the things that come easy--also meet with reward and acceptance. Sometimes in life, those with their nose to the grindstone can be overlooked. Not so for you right now. The details and the "little things" make all the difference. Perfecting your particular craft is natural. Some of you may find that your career is moving towards a more service-oriented direction. As well, romantic relationships can be more growth-oriented, forward-looking, and enthusiastic. Creative endeavors are likely to be quite successful. You are also more focused and ambitious when it comes to your work as well as health and fitness programs during this cycle. You feel inspired and motivated to take better care of yourself.
