(*In astrology, “planets” aren’t limited to the scientific definition-- the Sun and Moon get to join the party, too!)

Cancers, you are known for being among the most nurturing and compassionate signs. You are symbolized by the crab, partly because of your tough “shell.” You might not open up right away, but when you do, your protective instincts and emotional spirit make you a treasure to those around you. You are deeply attached to your home life, especially your family.

Be mindful, Cancer-- you may feel some mental stress and tension building. Ask yourself whether you may be carrying any unresolved trauma. From now until December, you have a window of opportunity to make real progress in your emotional healing. The time has never been better to start therapy, take up journaling, or even open up to a trusted friend. If you take your personal growth seriously, your life will be elevated in every way by the end of the year. The people you love will thank you, and you’ll be thanking yourself!

Dear Cancer, 2022 has the potential to bring major wins your way. This may look like financial fortune or luck in love-- or both! Whether your concerns are professional or personal, connect your intuition with your wisdom to achieve the results your heart desires.

Cancer and Career:

This year has been full of hard work, Cancer, and you will see a payoff before 2022 ends! Expect to continue working hard, because this year is calling you to an intentional drive for action. The theme of pressing toward your professional goals will bring you rewards, and teach you valuable lessons along the way. Stay open to receiving them!

Cancer and Money:

When it comes to investments, trust your intuition. Be sure to cross your Ts and dot your Is, and get absolutely everything in writing. If you stay on top of your documentation, you’re in the clear. Be totally meticulous in your financial choices in order to avoid major losses. You are more than capable of managing your money wisely!

Cancer and Love:

Venus, the planet of love and romance, is in Cancer until August 11. As long as this planet is in your sign, you may be receiving some unexpected good news in your love life. Single Cancers, new love could be brewing! And for those of you in a relationship, now is the right time to prioritize romantic experiences with your partner.

No matter what your relationship status may be, this is an ideal time to release any past issues you may be holding on to when it comes to love. There is a huge theme woven throughout the second half of your year: getting what you want. Be clear on your needs and boundaries in your relationships, and watch as the rest falls into place.
