    2007 Horoscope Forecast
    Cancer the Crab in 2007
    communications, travel, work and health

    The year starts at a cracking pace but with some unsettlement. The Lunar Nodes are in Pisces and Virgo, bringing action in your solar third and ninth houses. Communications, travel, legal matters, business plans and contacts and links with overseas will all feature in the welter of events. It's busy and will keep you on your toes. In-laws, siblings and neighbours will feature for some. Equipment, vehicles and travel schedules will be a concern for others. Lines of communication are important, as are educational needs and information requirements. Keep up with the play. Advance strategies or plans according to the timing. Be ready to read a situation, an individual or a business matter and adapt your approach.

    Warrior Mars is in Sagittarius, clashing with the Lunar Nodes, bringing breaks or changes with communication or contacts. There may be differences with co-workers. New associates may appear. Males and excitable or energetic people feature. You may branch out in a new direction with work. Changes with health may affect your approach. Introduce new activities or get rid of old ones to expand or redirect your efforts. March will see developments or dramatic change with communication, study, beliefs or legal matters, probably as a result of a clash or split of some kind, or it may be that events in the wider world play a hand. A startling experience or connection influences or alters the way you think about the world in which you live.

    Saturn is the big mover in 2007. As the year begins, he is still in Leo and your house of personal money and resources. Keep a weather eye on the budget. Stick to regulation or planned spending. If you're laying out big money, make sure it's for a designated purpose. On Sep 2nd, Saturn enters discriminating Virgo and your solar third house. This will bring a note of reserve in personal communication and marks the start of a cycle of education, new ideas, plans or developments. Business schemes for the 'long term' will feature. You will deal with authority, experts or older people in daily business or communication. You may study or increase your skills or information load, taking you away from familiar ground or out of your comfort zone. You have to rely on the advice or skills of others in unfamiliar situations.

    Saturn in Virgo is an ideal time for a big dream to become a big scheme and make itself real. Gather tools, techniques, associates and 'know how'. Keep the lid on the pot though. This is not the time to tell everyone what you're up to. Share on a 'need to know' basis. Hold a little back. Keep your own counsel as well as taking counsel with practiced advisers. With these strategies, you will flourish. Dealings with siblings or neighbours may experience reserve or restriction or it may bear on weighty or more important matters than usual. There may be much travelling to do in the ordinary line of work or business. Saturn turns direct in Leo on Apr 19th and then turns retrograde in Virgo on Dec 19th.

    Jul 27th sees Venus turn retrograde in Virgo, close to the Lunar South Node. There may be reversals or difficulty with communication, associates, travel matters, siblings and neighbours. Old problems may re-surface, as old contacts return or current contacts take a break. A downturn or change with love or money may affect business dealings or communication. You reduce interactions with the outside world so you can withdraw or because a condition or situation limits your field of action. Venus moves back to Leo and then moves forward on Sep 8th.

    Saturn also joins with the Lunar South Node in Virgo in the last two weeks of Oct. Old problems recur. There may be difficulty in dealing with authorities or systems. An old issue or someone you've dealt with in the past may come back to haunt you. Important communications or events take your attention, delaying work on other projects or concerns. An elderly sibling or neighbour may feature.

    2007 Cancer Love and Money Love and Money Go to Top

    Venus the goddess begins in Capricorn. Partners and close associates are in focus. As Mercury is there as well, communication feature and you will need to do more listening than talking at times. The contributions of others will be important to the passage of life. What others need to get off their chests will be a necessary part of the process. Partners or loved ones may set the pace. Their needs will have to be taken into account.

    Some singles find a new relationship, asking for maturity or bringing responsibility. There may be more than an emotional commitment. Business, finance or an obligation to others may feature. If you give it time to blossom, you can gain a great deal from your new situation and will discover you have a great deal to contribute. For other singles, you may concentrate on work or financial development, putting aside deeper commitments, though not necessarily erotic gratification. Be careful how and where you tread with love and money if that's the case.

    For those in a relationship, you may opt to work together or to operate as a partnership in a new or different way. Bring a loved one or a close associate in on what you're doing and open the horizons a little. Come in on what they're doing and benefits can be shared. Being a cardinal sign, you like to do things in your own way and maintain a fair degree of control. Let the reins loosen a little and see what others have to bring. A new kind of union or partnership may bring great benefit.

    Overall, relationships with partners or close associates are the key to this year. Build strategies and cultivate good dealings with those close to you. There may be hard work involved but by Dec 18th, when Jupiter moves to Capricorn, there will be a solid foundation for a new working partnership on many different levels, one that will benefit both of you.

    In regard to finance, you may work on important plans, schemes or dreams to advance your situation. You may work in an unusual way or in a new area or with an unusual individual to set things in motion or bring them to completion. Keep thinking 'long term' until Sep. From there, you need to get results or something on the board.

    With regard to intimacy or erotic relations, with Chiron gaining ground in Aquarius, some of you may explore this area of your life and deepen your understanding of it while others may step back, moving away from intimate relations to pursue an important goal or endeavour.

    2007 Cancer Home and Family Home and Family Go to Top

    Matters of home and family life are very much in the hands of others, or subject to your dealings with others. Joint projects or financial involvements play an important part. Partners or close associates may have a determining interest or they may be a voice for change. You may be developing new strategies or plans about your home situation through financial development. Home life is subject to the needs of your financial situation or of developing or ongoing commitments or responsibilities, either of a business or a more personal nature.

    2007 Cancer Work and Health Work and Health Go to Top

    Jupiter, lord of fortune, is in Sagittarius, bringing a period of development with work. Learn new practices or skills. You may be promoted or achieve new status. You may choose a new career and train for it, or you ready yourself to enter the workforce through study. Travel for work is indicated, especially overseas, as are work-related dealings with overseas links or those from other cultures. Look for the opportunities or the luck you need to develop your work situation or your business. Experts or qualified people play a part in your working day.

    Health matters will need attention. While Jupiter is a benevolent lord, this is not always a benign transit and you would do well to look at health problems and expand your range of treatments, practitioners or practices to give you a broad or diverse range of options. Try a new modality rather than just a variant within the familiar range. Look outside your cultural paradigm. Make sure that fresh air and vigorous activity in the outdoors feature in your health routines. Don't just look to the gymnasium and the air-conditioned premises to keep fit. Get out in the 'green'. Take a run under the sky. Enthusiastic teachers, learning and laughter will all play a part in your wellbeing. Take especial care with concerns about the liver and the thigh region. The solution for issues with either work or health is to learn something new and expand your horizons. Jupiter turns retrograde on Apr 6th and moves forward again on Aug 7th.

    With Saturn in Virgo from Sep 2nd, keep an eye on problems or concerns with mobility. Work at resilience and suppleness. If you're in a sedentary job or in a situation where your movements are limited or naturally curtailed, work on the flexibility of both body and mind to keep on top of your situation. Watch the last two weeks of Oct for concerns with health that represent a recurrence of an old problem or condition.

    You will need to take care from Nov 15th when Mars begins a retrograde motion cycle in your sign. Be prepared to slow down or evaluate your efforts or approach. Don't push yourself or others too hard. You may need to let off steam or take time to put health or diet regimes to rights. You may encounter opposition or feistiness in others, or in yourself. Defuse situations. Give some room for old emotions to surface. If problems or concerns in dealings with home or family surface, this may be a matter of children, of domestic circumstances or of the home itself. If something is wrong because it hasn't been attended to, fix it. A difficult or feisty male may feature. Watch accidents or safety. Impatience could be your undoing, even in simple or ordinary tasks. You may well have to review or redo something you've put a lot of energy into already. This cycle continues into the New Year.

    2007 Cancer Career Matters Career Matters Go to Top

    This year, it's a matter of the 'nuts and bolts' on the path of advancement. Learn what you need to know. Learn to negotiate or navigate the situations and systems you need to use. Dealings with minor authorities or intransigent elders may trouble you, so learn how to work your way around them. Get the skills you require in hand. Wait! Be informed and get the timing right. If you need something done that you can't do, work with or hire someone that can.

    This is a year for careful development and scrupulous application of the various stages of plans or schemes. You won't solve anything by going at it helter-skelter. Build your way gradually but determinedly through the phases of planning and action that are necessary, making sure you're ready to adjust or review when necessary. If you take care of the details and are careful with the demands of day to day living, you can advance your situation over time. Don't climb the mountain. Just keep taking the steps and you'll eventually be able to look back over the plateau you've left behind.

    2007 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's first reverse motion cycle is in Pisces on Feb 14th. Overseas communication, travel plans or contacts may bring surprising news or unexpected developments. There may be concerns with study, legal matters or dealings with in-laws. You may have to alter your plans or you may need to adjust your schedules or redirect your efforts. Avoid final or defining decisions affecting any of these areas. Confusion may easily spread because of poor communications. There may be concern over differences in belief. News in the wider world may alter your decisions. Mercury moves back to Aquarius on Feb 27th then forward again on Mar 8th.

    Mercury's second reverse motion cycle is in your sign, starting on Jun 15th. Take care with accidents and with personal communication. You may need to review your process or your efforts. If there are problems dealing with partners or close associates, you may need to backtrack to see where they began. Be patient. There will be solutions if you widen the circle of your discussion. There is a backlog of feeling for you to express. You may have been working without seeming to get anywhere, so take time to let off steam. Review your endeavours and you'll find answers and renewed vigour. This cycle ends on Jul 10th.

    Mercury's third retrograde phase begins on Oct 12th in Scorpio, clashing with Chiron in Aquarius. Lifestyle, children or romance may cause problems or confusion. Finance could be at the root of it. Watch spending or commitments as you come into this period. Prepare for a glitch or unexpected developments with love or lifestyle. Review your position. There may be consultation with those involved with finance because of lifestyle spending. A venture or a risk may prove costly. Erotic relations require attention. Ask what's missing or what's not working. Avoid anything untoward or done in secret with love or money but don't be afraid of a little fantasy to get your love life back on track. Mercury moves back to Libra on Oct 24th then moves forward on Nov 1st.

    2007 Cancer Lady Moon Lady Moon Go to Top

    There are two Full Moons in your sign this year. The first is on Jan 3rd and will arrive against a backdrop of difficulty in work or health. The communication aspects of this time are favourable. Sit down with partners or close associates. Solve problems or forge deals. Listen to what they have to say. The balance of talk or possibilities may rest with them, not you. Nonetheless, this will be productive and fruitful for resolutions or new determinations.

    Your New Moon is on Jul 14th, just at the end of a Mercury retrograde cycle. There may be crucial decisions but uncertainty as to the right path. Creative options are favoured. Don't be a martyr to the needs or the cause of others. Discussion will bring issues to the surface and clarify the way ahead. Get a feel for things before you set your course. Money concerns are involved. You may be thinking about how much, where and with whom. Be discerning. This is not a time for hopefulness or rose-coloured glasses.

    Your second Full Moon comes on Dec 24th, lighting the way through Christmas Eve to Christmas Day. There could be an upsurge of feeling or a little excitement as Lady Moon joins with retrograde Mars and opposes the Sun and Mercury, stimulating hot words or hot action. Let feelings surface first then try to talk matters through. You may be at odds with someone close. You may see someone you have not seen in a while. There may be a backlog of feeling to discuss. Old issues rise to the surface. Let off steam first, then navigate a diplomatic path!

    2007 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.

    Mar 3rd brings a Lunar Eclipse of the Full Moon in Virgo. Communications or travel are subject to interruption. There may be a temporary severance or cyclical end with a line of contact, a business deal or a plan. Prepare for a change or an end in communication or relations with siblings or neighbours. Travel plans or schedules may be disturbed or altered. Someone or something may pass out of contact and you may have to wait for them to return or seek a new connection.

    Aug 28th brings a Lunar Eclipse of the Full Moon in Pisces. Overseas links may be cut or interrupted. If you have travel plans, they may be subject to change. If you are travelling be flexible and ready to alter schedules or arrangements. A family matter or concern may cause you to change your plans, possibly disruption in relations with in-laws. There may be a loss of contact in dealings with those overseas. Expect a change in the bigger picture of your life.

    Sep 11th brings a Solar Eclipse of the New Moon in Virgo. You may need to change or adapt schedules, arrangements or plans to work around an end or alteration with travel, communication, business dealings or associates. Neighbours or siblings also feature. A contact may pass out of the spectrum of your dealings. You may have to alter one line of planning and institute another. There may be delay or interruption with communications or news you're waiting for. News may bring an unexpected change to your plans.
