    Cancer the Crab in 2006
    New Horizons, Romance & Risk

    There's push and pull for the Crustacean in the year 2006. Jupiter, the lord of fortune, swans through Scorpio, urging expansion, new horizons, romance and risk. Saturn holds the ground in Leo, urging caution, 'penny wise' and the measured approach. Between the two of them, Cancer, you'll need all your canny instinct to know what risk to take and when to take it. Mars the warrior and mystic Neptune partner Jupiter and Saturn respectively as the bell of midnight ushers in Jan 1st, 2006. Thus, you'll want to test desires against resources and come up trumps. This year, as Jupiter and Uranus harmonize with your sign, you could pull off a big gamble or coup as fortune favours you, bringing dramatic change. However, care and timing are the keys. Jan and Nov will test decision-making. Err on the side of caution. Mar and Aug will bring a balancing act, putting what you've actually got against what you might have if you try. Expert management will be required.

    Chiron, the wounded healer, is in Aquarius and set for a long stay. New practices and strategies will be required with money and its handling, especially where joint finance and credit arrangements are involved. Some may have to face issues about intimacy and sexuality. You may need to delve deep to find what will fulfill you. Single Crabs may come into a deeply moving sexual relationship while those with a partner will enter a new phase of your relationship. The occult or the practice of psychology may interest some of you, especially with Jupiter in Scorpio till the last week of Nov.

    2006 Cancer Love and Money Love and Money Go to Top

    With Venus the goddess in reverse, sort outstanding matters with money or intimacy as the year gets underway. Your dealings and efforts will bring change with your partner or partnership situation. There may be an old bill to pay. In the bigger picture, Jupiter in Scorpio brings romance, social activity, new ventures or projects, lifestyle change and the odd gamble or risk. Those in a relationship may transform or upgrade your lifestyle. Changes with business or money could bring such alterations about. Singles might find themselves plunged into a powerful new romance or enjoy a more hedonistic lifestyle and play the field. Whether in a partnership or single, the search for pleasure will predominate. Watch you don't spend all you have (emotionally or financially) on something that won't last, otherwise you'll end by saying 'goodbye' to a lifestyle you never quite had.

    With Saturn in Leo, money and personal spending are set for change. Opt for 'lean and mean'. Save money by sticking to the basics. Target your purchases by cutting out what's not important. No frivolous spending! If you wish to buy something of value, work towards the purchase by recognizing how much work goes into the price. Don't make a grandiose purchase for its own sake. Build resources and spending power with hard work and good management. Some may have to learn about 'doing without' during this time. Others may put personal resources or money at risk to gain a greater prize. You may pare down to the basics or set out to acquire beautiful or enduring possessions.

    2006 Cancer Home and Family Home and Family Go to Top

    For those in a partnership, there may be a new zest at home with Jupiter in Scorpio. New lifestyle or leisure activities may feature. There may be cause for celebration. There may be an addition to the family through a birth or a return. There may be a renewal of romance. New horizons may lift the spirits. Powerful events or understanding may alter the course of family life. Lifestyle spending may be an issue. How much and why? These will be the questions for there will be a tendency to do things in the grand manner. For the singles, romance and new activities or projects will alter your home life altogether.

    2006 Cancer Work and Health Work and Health Go to Top

    With Mercury the messenger and Pluto, underworld lord, conjoined in Sagittarius, there will be important negotiations with work. Sort out terms and contracts. Work on relations with co-workers. There will be beginnings or endings with work cycles and even the nature of your employment. June will bring changing influences as the Lunar Nodes move from Aries and Libra to Pisces and Virgo, activating your houses of communications and travel. There may be significant breaks or changes with work, especially through to Oct when Pluto forms an exact square to the Nodes. There will be change with those you're dealing or with whom you're in communication. Contacts will alter, especially with overseas links. Travel may influence work decisions or change your working situation. You may deal with difficult individuals connected with work. They may close doors rather than open them. Health may be a concern for some and health matters may affect work. You may break from an old way of thinking about health to establish new routines. You may need intense discussion to get to the heart of a health matter. Ask the hard questions. Don't just treat the symptoms. Strong action brings renewal. Changes with health or healthcare may bring changed connections or contacts.

    On Nov 24th, Jupiter moves to Sagittarius, ushering in a time of development with work. You may learn new practices or skills to broaden your horizons. You may be promoted or achieve status. You may choose a new career and train for it. You may travel for work. There may be work-related dealings with qualified people, those from overseas or those of status or authority. While Jupiter is benevolent, this is not always a benign transit as far as health is concerned. Look at the bigger picture with healthcare. Expand your horizons with new methods, practitioners or modalities. See a bigger picture with health. Alter old habits or patterns accordingly.

    2006 Cancer Career Matters Career Matters Go to Top

    Financial management is pivotal for your career. You need to manage the small money and personal expenses in order to make the best of your funds and efforts. Be 'lean and mean'. You'll be surprised how much you can free up for better use with astute economy. The ability to negotiate will feature. Talking terms, making deals and getting into the action mark the way ahead. If you can negotiate the right package, you'll be in a strong position. Overall, though, there is something that underlies both of these things. As Saturn in your second house dances with Jupiter in your fifth house, you may have to decide for yourself what it is you actually want. Is money the important issue? Or would you rather choose a vocation where you can enjoy and be fulfilled by your efforts, asking only for what you need? This is a reflection that will touch the minds of many this year.

    2006 Cancer Mercury the MessengerMercury the Messenger  Go to Top

    Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times a year for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds a time of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and communications. The breakdowns that occur are a function of neglect, inattention, simple misunderstandings or component failure. They will often bring to the fore the very contingency we should have planned for and didn't. When the retrograde phase occurs, watch out for such possibilities as well as putting off major decision-making or the signing of crucial documents and agreements. We tend to miss things while Mercury is in reverse motion and then have to come back and do them again. A process of review in the retrograde phase can efficiently show where problems might lie and help us with damage control or the mending of things. Double check arrangements at these times! What you think you've said and what others have understood will often prove to be two different things.

    Mercury turns retrograde in Pisces on Mar 3rd, squaring Pluto, underworld lord, as he does so. There may be communication problems, especially if overseas links are concerned. There may be unexpected developments in that same quarter. You may need to revise your horizons in accordance with the bigger picture. An artistic or creative project may be shelved or unexpectedly revived. Day to day communications may be affected by events overseas or by technical failure. Dealings with co-workers may be problematic. This cycle ends on Mar 26th.

    Mercury turns retrograde in Leo on Jul 5th, just in range of a T-square involving Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron. Put personal spending under the microscope and see what flaws you reveal. There may be difficulty with the pennies because of the pounds. You may be tight financially because of a risk. You may have to wait for something to pay off. Let things ride. Don't add to the risk. Children may be costly. If romance is proving expensive, review the investment. Apply the principle across the board. The cycle ends on Jul 30th on a more personal note as Mercury returns to your sign on Jul 10th. Be clear with communications and dealings with partners or close associates.

    Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio on Oct 28th, in a conjunction with Jupiter. There will be surprises, upsets or reversals with creative projects, children, lifestyle matters and romance. Review the situation then look to the 'long term'. A long cherished option may come good for some where others will have to step back and think again. Fortune of one kind or another will play a part at this time. If you have nothing else left, it might be time to put your shirt on the outsider. Otherwise, hold on to what you have and see where things go. This cycle ends on Nov 18th.

    2006 Cancer Lady Moon Lady Moon Go to Top

    Your Full Moon comes on Jan 14th. Venus the goddess is in reverse motion and joins with the Sun. Review matters with a partner or close associate. Something old may come to light. Issues of love or money could be to the fore. You may be pulled between your needs and those of someone close. There may be separation or a return that brings old feelings to the surface.

    Your New Moon comes on Jun 25th. Be certain of your finances before you set out to make a new start. The picture may revise itself or unexpected developments may come in the weeks ahead. Great things are possible with what you dream of here but they'll take time to come to fruit. You may need to help or support someone close.

    2006 Cancer Eclipses Eclipses  Go to Top

    Eclipses of both the Sun and the Moon often indicate the end of a cycle or a significant change in the direction or pattern of the affairs governed by the house in which the eclipse falls. Eclipses of the Sun may affect work, direction and relations with people in authority. Eclipses of the Moon may affect matters of home, family and emotions as well as relations with women and children. Both may affect your health.
