Monthly Horoscope Cancer January 2018
Written by Kurt Franz
January – Being Satisfied With Less
The sun will be in Capricorn at the beginning of the year and in opposition to Cancer. Unfortunately, this is a less favorable position for making important decisions. It’s better to wait until it moves out of its opposition aspect on January 20th. It might seem like some people are working against you while the opposition holds. After January 20th, Cancers will find themselves wondering whether it’s time to make a change in some areas of their lives.
Mercury will be moving in the same direction as the sun to start the new calendar year, and will initially be in an opposition aspect. Because of this, you might find other peoples’ opinions seem to be against you. You might often feel more nervous and distracted. Misunderstandings might be more frequent as well. However, it will be moving out of this opposition aspect by January 11th. After that, the planet will be encouraging Cancers to think about whether it’s time for a new direction in their professional lives and, if so, how they should make that happen.
Cancers: Watch Out for Shopping Sprees
Venus will be in Capricorn, an opposition aspect, through January 17th. Affairs of the heart might be less than satisfactory during this time than you’d like, and you won’t feel much like working. You might experience some irritation, and you might tend towards wasteful spending to try and make up for it. Just watch out where you spend your money during this time, Cancers. Venus will leave its opposition aspect on January 18th. If you need to make some improvements in your love life or partnerships, Venus will let you know it during this time. It’s best to discuss such changes clearly. Most of the changes you’ll need to make will be small ones.
Mars Delivers a Boost of Energy
But you can rely on Mars. It will be in Scorpio, forming a positive trine and spoiling Cancers with lots of energy and power. You’ll feel full of zest for life and have the energy to start new things. This trend will continue through January 26th, after which Mars will move into Sagittarius to form a quincunx aspect.
