2017 Yearly Horoscope: Cancer Cancer 22 June - July 22

It's true that the Moon, your ruling planet, shifts often in the sky, but it's still worth noting that it's Full in your own sensitive sign at the beginning of January. This Moon is part of a four-point configuration called the Cardinal Grand Cross right now, and indicates a key time to regroup and refocus your energy. If you're going through a tough time, bring everything to a halt as you regather your thoughts. What should your next move be?

The vibrant Sun moves into your sign in late June, which puts a spotlight on your true personality. Emotions run high, yes, but your compassion and sympathy are positive traits, not negative ones. Family relationships are also highlighted for the next month, Cancer, so work on strengthening those bonds with your relatives (especially females/those with feminine energy).

The start of October sees Jupiter enter your fellow Water Sign Scorpio's orbit, which signals very big/powerful change on the horizon. You're extremely interested in life's mysteries right now, and you feel a big pull toward figuring out the unknown. This could apply to many specific areas of your own life, or to the world in general. You're determined to figure out the who, what, why, where, and how of every situation... and you're excellent at then taking that knowledge and applying it toward a satisfying outcome.


The end of February brings a Pisces New Moon/Solar Eclipse, which isn't a good time to start anything new. There may (literally) be a shadow over your love life, Cancer, preventing you from seeing beyond what's right in front of you.

Single Crabs, have you been thinking about asking someone out? Trying to get up the courage just to talk to someone? Or mulling over the idea of converting your flirting sessions with a sexy associate into something more? This aspect hints at high emotions, and also of unexpected results. So, yes, Cancer, you can ask, but if you're looking for a sure thing, you might want to wait until the waters are a bit less turbulent.

If you're already in a relationship you may be hesitant to take things to the next level with your significant other -- and with good reason. Your intuition is working overtime, perhaps warning you that now isn't the best time to pop an important question or ask your sweetie for a favor. Follow your instincts.

The beginning of June brings a Venus-Saturn fire trine, which is a strong suggestion that the key to being on the path to love is being well-behaved and committed. This may sound like some old-fashioned mumbo jumbo, but if you think about it, it really fits in well with the whole Crab mentality. You're about this. You place importance on family values. Security. Traditional relationships. Both single and attached Cancers alike can identify with the desire to be in a solid relationship, and this aspect further emphasizes that that is, indeed, what you should be looking out for and working toward.

The Venus-Pluto trine in the beginning of October suggests that certain close, personal relationships are under scrutiny, but it also favors long-term commitments and offers the opportunity to go deeper into the emotional realm with someone you are close to. This is the time to stare into each other's eyes and ask the deep, intimate questions you've been wondering about.

Single Crabs shouldn't be afraid to get serious. Playing the field is for signs that don't have the emotional depth you do. And for those of you out there who are already taken, there are still things you can learn about each other. When you go to emotional depths you haven't been to together, it strengthens your bond even more.


The Moon goes void of course (VOC) for the first time this year at the beginning of January (after leaving Aries and before heading into Taurus), which is a short window of time but significant enough to mention. You're ruled by the Moon, Cancer, so this is a time where your emotions will be on hold, allowing you to get some productive, logical work done. Not that you should take on any new activity or responsibility, but by all means, go after current work with a vengeance and make a significant and determined effort to finish what you start. Specific tasks that are especially favorable during the VOC Moon, such as editing, reviewing, rewriting, refining details, completing existing projects, finding lost objects and making to-do lists.

When Mars enters your sign in June, you make the switch from playing offense to defense when it comes to your career. Things can get somewhat emotionally sticky during this aspect, so you'll have to fight to stay on the side of logic as much as possible. You don't like to show much on the surface right now (which could be hard for your co-workers to get used to, especially if they've seen you cry at work), but there's currently an undeniable sense of pride and a low-key goal-oriented approach to it that tells others you're dead serious about your job. You aren't going to get what you want through flash; leave that to someone else. You're all about approaching tasks with creativity and dedication.

Mid-September brings a Mercury-Neptune opposition that can cause a brain fog that sends you into a bit of a professional downward spiral, so avoid any detail-oriented, specific tasks and assignments if at all possible. You also have a tendency to be misunderstood and misrepresented right now, so be very clear in your directions, explanations, presentations, and overall communication in general. This is the time to make lists, double check them and then have someone else go over them once more just to make sure you aren't missing something. A deleted or inadvertent detail that gets left out could have potential disastrous professional consequences.
