Sun Jan 1:
New Year's Day
Happy New Year, Cancer! You are energetic and full of optimism
today and this should set the tone for the coming year. You are likely to
find that your needs are more or less fulfilled and obstacles cleared
to your satisfaction. Thanks to Jupiter, you could hear some good news
later in the day. Check out your stars for the year ahead!
Fortunate colours are rose quartz and blue sapphire.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 10.
Mon Jan 2:
- Something about your personality or appearance is drawing a lot
of attention today, dear Cancer. Is your stubborn streak is showing?
Flexibility might be easier under the ambitious Aries Moon. Be kind to
those with long memories, especially if you think you might run into them
again at some point in your life. If you can't think of anything nice
to say, don't say anything at all. Get together with friends tonight.
Fortunate colours are plum and apricot.
Lucky numbers are 30 and 32.
Tue Jan 3:
- No one can accuse you of being a wallflower today! You won't be
afraid to tell it like it is. Your responses are quick, and your timing
near perfect. If you don't accomplish what you set out to do by the end
of the day, it won't be for lack of trying. Getting an 'A' for effort
is sometimes better than facing the test.
Beneficial colours are terracotta and bronze.
Lucky numbers are 20 and 30.
Wed Jan 4:
- You may not be privy to every little thing that's going on around
you, but so what? Crabs can't always be in control, but you don't need to
feel insecure, either. Thanks to your inside knowledge (and your
collection of gadgets), you appear to be almost godlike to those who
don't have the same access as you do. Just make sure you memorise the
important bits, in case the system goes down.
Favourable colours are pale yellow and sky blue.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 25.
Thu Jan 5:
- It's a moody kind of day for the Crab, even a bit edgy with the
Moon in Gemini. Annoying people keep bugging you, so it's best to keep
your own counsel. In fact, you are better off taking the day off if you
can, so that you get some private time to rebuild your inner structure
and charge those spiritual batteries.
Propitious colours are emerald green and purple sage.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 16.
Fri Jan 6:
In Your Shell
- It's a struggle to display your real emotions today, dear Cancer.
Being so sensitive, the smallest things do hurt your feelings, but no one
else is likely to realize what's going on since you retreat into your
shell at these times. It's not a conscious decision, but frustration
may make you blue when you can't explain the pain.
Beneficial colours are pale green and charcoal.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 12.
Sat Jan 7:
- The urge to move onward powered by your wisdom opens up today,
even if you are still feeling a bit fragile. After all, dear Cancer, when
you're right, you're right. You know that further explanation is
unnecessary, but the people you're dealing with might need it spelled out
for them. Take the time to draw a picture or use simpler words to get
your point across. It will be much more relaxed tomorrow.
Favourable colours are crimson and pearl.
Lucky numbers are 29 and 36.
Sun Jan 8:
Out In Front
- Embrace the moment, even as you throw yourself into the uncertain
future. What's going to come next? What seem like spontaneous decisions
are actually emerging from knowledge deep within you. If you have a
plan in mind to get what you want, this is the time to implement it.
Legal matters, debates, contract negotiations, partnership and other
alliances, and joint ventures of any kind are in the picture. Business
and romantic rivals can't compete with you at the moment.
Excellent colours are jade and charcoal.
Lucky numbers are 1 and 7.
Mon Jan 9:
- Wake up to a special day, with the Full Moon in your sign --
although it may not seem that way at first. Make a conscious decision
to think of things in a more positive light, dear Cancer. Each passing
hour strips away another layer of doubt, leaving you totally fancy free
by evening. The Universe is starting to return you to your natural state.
Delight, ease and energy are there for the time being, so put them to
Fortunate colours are ruby red and caramel.
Lucky numbers are 1 and 7.
Tue Jan 10:
Look Before You Leap
- Although it's tempting to butt into other people's business, it's
in your best interests to hold back and keep a low profile. A fool rushes
in where angels fear to tread, so advance scouting would be worth your
while. There are limits as to how far a professional relationship
should go; the trial and error approach could be costly. However, a lucky
financial break could be yours today.
Cautious colours are silvery grey and foxglove.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 30.
Wed Jan 11:
Needs Vs Wants
- An urge to look at the financials could take hold of you, but
your responsibilities and the needs of others could keep you from this
investigation. It's a good day for realizations about the forces that
drive you, perhaps by accident rather than design. Just go with the flow.
Creeping uncertainty makes you nervous. Things get clearer later in the week.
Favourable colours are olive green and bright orange.
Lucky numbers are 17 and 39.
Thu Jan 12:
- There is no reward for coming second now, dear Crabs. You need to
be first out of the gate if you hope to make any real progress. Is an
important relationship in a state of flux? Think about others as well
as yourself. Communication is the key, especially if the law is involved.
There's a lot to do, but you should be able to accomplish everything on
your list if you plan things in advance.
Fortunate colours are rich red and laurel green.
Lucky numbers are 11 and 32.
Fri Jan 13:
Crustaceans won't get anywhere if they insist on waiting in the
wings and the best way to advance is to get more deeply involved. It's
time to stand up and take notice, as well as be noticed. You're sure to
find that many interesting things have happened since you last gave
things your full attention. Take inspiration from a competitor who is
getting ahead of you. Instead of being envious, pay close attention to
what they are doing right. Read more on Friday 13th!
Beneficial colours are pink and spring green.
Lucky numbers are 25 and 34.
Sat Jan 14:
Sense Of Timing
- Your sense of timing is a off at the moment: when making out your
schedule, keep in mind that being too early is just as bad as being too
late. Higher education, religious activities, political interests, and
cultural pursuits take on a more social atmosphere this month. Romance,
marriage, or any cooperative venture involving a foreign country or
someone of another culture or race is stimulated. Make sure you think
things through carefully before blurting out the first thing that comes
Stabilising colours are sage green and pewter.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 25.
Sun Jan 15:
- You might be in charge, but that doesn't give you the right to
work other people beyond their capacities. Lighten up, Cancer. Good
fortune comes your way without any pressure. This is, or should be, a day
off from your usual pace. You might be surprised at how natural it
feels to put on a friendly face.
Fortunate colours are sapphire blue and silver.
Lucky numbers are 28 and 37.
Mon Jan 16:
Stars On Side
- Nothing much can get by you today, my dear Crustaceans. Even
though it's Monday, the atmosphere is fresh and alive. Are you ready to
take on the entire world? Sure you are. If there's any mystery in the
works, you're eager to get to the bottom of it. You're in your element
today. Take clues from outside sources where possible. You never know
where your next big idea will come from.
Fortunate colours are cobalt blue and red satin.
Lucky numbers are 32 and 39.
Tue Jan 17:
- You're fully centred and completely aware of your surroundings.
Mystery is attractive to you today and not sinister at all. You're
free, articulate and ready for the next step. This is a great time to
explore new places: take a long lunch and walk through a different part
of the city, or try a new cafe this evening. Your world is full of
possibilities: you'd be foolish not to participate.
Favourable colours are sage green and sunset pink.
Lucky numbers are 9 and 25.
Wed Jan 18:
Wrong Side of the Bed?
- Any side of the bed feels like the wrong side this morning, so
you might as well stay where you are. The other option (and perhaps the
more reasonable) is to leave the house in full battle gear. Clearly it
would be easier to have a day of rest, but if that isn't possible, you
must find a way to persevere. If you're in a position of authority at
work, delegate as many of your tasks as possible.
Fortunate colours are peach and rose.
Lucky numbers are 33 and 34.
Thu Jan 19:
- Speed is a useless and frustrating force for Crabs at the moment.
Slow down before you do something you'll regret. From the beginning,
you always knew that there would be a downside to this whole operation.
It never hurts to try to look on the bright side: at least any bad news
today will make tomorrow's good news sound even better.
Auspicious colours are ruby red and jet black.
Lucky numbers are 17 and 18.
Fri Jan 20:
- Tell others what they want to hear, but not to the point of
telling an outright lie. Take extra care to be sincere, because sooner or
later your stretches of the truth are going to catch up with you,
especially in the financial world. As the day progresses, starry-eyed
potential and hardheaded reality begin falling into line. It's possible
to achieve your goals and stay true to yourself, but you might have to go
out of your way to do it.
Appropriate colours are tan and orange.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 12.
Sat Jan 21:
Reap the Benefits
- Do something to surprise yourself or someone else today. You'll
feel like being adventurous and trying something different for a
change. Don't be afraid to go where no Crab has gone before: even if
you don't like the result, other people's expressions of delight will
make it all worthwhile. Someone close to you loves that you're
unpredictable. Reap the benefits from this change of attitude!
Beneficial colours are smooth bronze and clotted cream.
Lucky numbers are 33 and 34.
Sun Jan 22:
- Why is everyone questioning your motives today? After all, your
efforts are no doubt noble and necessary. But where's the gratitude? Pay
attention to your style of delivery, and with a few subtle changes, you
can make this picture perfect. There is more at work behind the scenes
than you think and if big egos are involved, be among the first to drop
Beneficial colors are charcoal and mint.
Lucky numbers are 16 and 26.
Mon Jan 23:
New Moon, Year Of The Dragon
- A New Moon in your eighth house could see a major development
with financial involvements or joint obligations. Make sure your
payment schedules are up to date. Prepare for an interruption (or an end)
in a fiscal situation, and you may need to allocate funds from lesser
priorities. Occult interests may come forward; a break, or a new start,
in your sexual and psychological interests is in the air. Be sure your
taxes are current, or you could be struggling in the Year of the Dragon!
Fortunate colors are pale green and pearl grey.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 8.
Tue Jan 24:
Mars turns retrograde in Virgo, so the weeks ahead are apt to
be swamped with information and ideas, much of it misleading. Travel
and transportation are highlighted and you'll be keen to update your
phones, and other gadgets. Be sure to take care in any detailed issues
connected with this, because circumstances may create obstacles to your
action. If you are planning a trip or the purchase and sale of a car,
it might pay to wait until you have thoroughly investigated everything
connected with this. Read more on Mars retrograde!
Protective colors are yellow and lilac.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 7.
Wed Jan 25:
Give It Your All
- Choose something you're good at, then give it your all. Your
favourite game is begging to be played in the professional arena.
Others are so impressed that they might not even bother to compete.
This is the perfect time to capitalize on your speed and strength. Be
careful which fires you start; people are going to expect you to put them
Advantageous colors are clay red and spring green.
Lucky numbers are 8 and 10.
Thu Jan 26:
Try Something New
- Cancer is always looking for the angle, but today is a good day
to let your preconceived notions go. Don't be afraid to try something
new, just for the pleasure of it. The advantages of your discoveries
are clear -- not just to you, but to everyone else as well. The best
moments are spent with the people you truly care about.
Beneficial colors are shocking pink and neon green.
Lucky numbers are 26 and 41.
Fri Jan 27:
- A loud voice doesn't carry as far as a soft one right now.
Don't overwhelm people, Cancer. You don't want to ride roughshod over
potential future allies. Your strong suit is most often your subtlety. Of
course, a small dose of exuberance is fine, unless it leads to a careless
mistake. Whatever you want to accomplish today, it's important to
strike some kind of balance.
Harmonious colors are lavender and sea green.
Lucky numbers are 12 and 30.
Sat Jan 28:
Keep Your Head Down
- The less you expect everything to go your way, the better off
you'll be. Those who like being watched will just have to be satisfied
with a distant audience right now. Divisions between people are wider
than they usually are. For now, keep your head down and concentrate on
the thankless tasks that need to be done.
Auspicious colors are midnight blue and lavender.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 21.
Sun Jan 29:
- Career issues move into the foreground. The good news for
Crustaceans is that the market is becoming increasingly friendly to
someone with your particular talents. Make sure you keep things on a
professional level at all times. If you have to explain something more
than once, then you may be dealing with the wrong person.
Favorable colors are ruby red and sapphire.
Lucky numbers are 4 and 27.
Mon Jan 30:
Truth And Justice
- There's something fishy going on, Crabs. Be sure to get to the
bottom of things, even if it costs you a friendship or two. Luck is on
your side, so if you are on a quest for truth and justice, just be sure
that one of those hairs you split isn't your lifeline. You still have a
long way to go, so don't burn all your bridges. Developments later in the
day could be quite transformative.
Advantageous colors are pale gold and lavender.
Lucky numbers are 7 and 10.
Tue Jan 31:
- You're vulnerable to your emotions and feelings, but you should
start to feel more confident and happy as the day progresses. A stressful
situation at work threatens to get on top of you, but it doesn't have to,
if you don't let it. If you can, do something that takes your mind off
things. Divert yourself with friends and associates.
Companionable colors are cerise and charcoal.
Lucky numbers are 3 and 7.
