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
Love and Money
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
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.
Home and Family
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.
Work and Health
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
