Gonna leave this here to do the compare at the end of next year.
Your soft, emotional core is what defines you, Cancer, but 2018 is full of opportunities to let the world know they shouldn’t mess with your tough exterior! When the dazzling sun enters your sign at the end of June, give yourself permission to let go of past hurts. You don’t have to take the blame for everything. Some things don’t work out no matter how much you want them to, so there’s no need to accept any misplaced blame.
Things to focus on for the coming month? Cooking, connecting with family (especially female relatives), and creating art. A satisfying trine between the sun in your sign and the moon, your emotional ruler, at the start of July lets you take full advantage of opportunities that cross your path, and decisions you make based on your intuition are spot on. It’s nice to be validated for your hard work, especially in your personal relationships.
Another important trine occurs between the Moon in your sign and the Scorpio sun in late October, and this time your psychic abilities and capacity to detect all types of nonsense are right on target. Good luck to anyone who tries to put one over on you. You won’t hesitate to call others on their ridiculousness.
The Cancer full moon (aka supermoon) in the beginning of January sets a fantastic mood for your love life. You get a burst of positive energy from the emotion-driven glow, and because it’s in your own sign, you feel the pull of this giant-looking orb as even greater than normal. You can achieve great things in your love life if you set your mind to it, Cancer, and taking the initiative comes easily and naturally. Make the first move without worrying about what the potential negative consequences might be. You’re truly in charge of your own destiny, and everyone will realize that once you’ve made your next big romantic move. Play to win. If you want it, it’s yours.
Love planet Venus enters your sign mid-May, bringing out your most nurturing, caring attributes. You love to cuddle and take care of others, and you’re happiest when your house is filled with the love you’ve created. There are a lot of emotional ups and downs during this transit, as your emotions guide your actions. You can be severely influenced by people who are emotionally manipulative, but you’ll never feel cheated or used if you follow your inner voice. You are naturally dedicated, warm, and devoted to those you love, and you’ll go through almost anything to protect what you consider yours. Feeling safe and secure is the driving force right now, and you’ll jump through hoops to make that happen.
The end of September brings difficult energy from a moon-Saturn square that’s hard to escape because you’re forced to deal with the results of past actions. When you think of your past relationships, how did they end? Did you take full responsibility for the part you played in your breakups or did you take the easy way out?
This aspect also exposes how the women in your life played a role in your romantic development and what part they may still play in your current relationships. You may feel unable to speak your mind because of the interference of your mom (or a mom-like figure) in your love life, which can make you feel like a kid again when dealing with love-related issues. We’re just saying, if you find yourself on a therapist’s couch talking about the current state of your love life, pay attention to the part where they delve into how you were raised!
The moon is your emotional barometer, Cancer, and although you try to separate business from emotion, it’s difficult at best with most Crabs. You know the people you see crying at work? You’ve probably been that person many times (not because you want to but because you can’t help it). And because it’s virtually impossible for you to detach your emotions from the task at hand, it makes the fact that there are two full moons in January and no full moon in February rather unfortunate for you. The very beginning and last day of January will be perfect times to close out accounts and finish assigned tasks, but then you could spend all of February yearning for a good time to end things. Make sure you do a complete purge in late January so that you can make it a full month before the time is right to do it all again in early March.
Chatty Mercury coasts into your sensitive sign in the middle of June, which means you’ll approach communication emotionally, not logically (as you did when Mercury was just in intellectually leaning Gemini for the past several weeks). You’re much more likely to take things personally, which can be a bad idea when it comes to your career. Did your boss or potential employer offer you advice to help you grow? Probably. Did you internalize it and wonder why you can’t do anything right? Again, probably. The challenge during this time will be for you to not only listen objectively but also vocalize your opinions and passions without jeopardizing yourself or your career.
A tough sun-moon square at the end of December could raise your anxiety level or create tension between you and your past or current co-workers or networking group, because you see a discrepancy between the way they’re treated and the way you’d like to be or feel you deserve to be treated. Resist the urge to compare salaries, perks, benefits, and rewards or talk about your performance compared to that of anyone you work with or are competing against in the job market. Focus on yourself and your accomplishments. Work on strategies that will allow a boss or potential employer to see your merits on their own and not how they stack up against anyone else’s.

Oh it’s 2012 and according to experts I have until 12/21 to fulfill all my hopes and dreams. Personally I don’t think any of us will get off so easy as knowing when the end of time is coming. Too much of a mystery to belong to the human mind and all that. So I achieved one of my goals last year and learned how to leave work behind a bit and have more of a personal life. The whole relationship thing?? Well I’ve been a commitment phobe for 40 years so I think the fact that I actually gave it serious thought and consideration was a big enough step. :^) I do think I have finally figured what I am and am not looking for and learned that although sometimes it does bother me that I am single it really has been the right thing for me. When I was younger I had the peace of knowing that I had to be true to myself and not settle for anything less than that one person who was perfect for me, not PERFECT, just perfect for me and if I didn’t find them so be it. I found that peace of belief again. Life will be what it will be and you just have to enjoy it for what it is.
I plan to do more things for myself this year, take care of myself for a change and do what I need to do to be happy. I want to go back to school, make sure I make time to see old friends instead of just brief comments on Facebook and the like. I used to pick a random subject that interested me and research and study the hell out of it just because, I’d like to do that again. I want to get back to the gym, not as some temporary attempt to lose weight but as a way to bring discipline and strength back into my life. It’s time for change. I’ve been reacting to what life throws at me for so long now I forgot I was once the type of person who made things happen for myself, who went after what I wanted with all I had win or lose. Guess I am looking at this as a year of possibilities. Been feeling a little bit of the old spark lately.
And now to the good stuff. The yearly horoscope. Last year’s is here. I did indeed learn to let go of what was holding me back. let’s see what this year will bring.
Year 2012 Overview
New beginnings have indeed arrived in your favor with the onset of 2012, Cancer. Although the biggest changes in the love realm won’t arrive until autumn, romance will return as a central theme for you in 2012 – just when you’d started to give up hope of anything new ever returning to your life! Although Pluto has been working on deeply transforming your partnership sector since 2008 (forcing you to shed the outmoded), you were indeed beginning to wonder if anything new would ever come to fill the void. And alas, it shall!
Saturn has been weighing heavily on your family and home sector over the past few years, bringing plenty of challenges your way. On one hand, this has been an incredibly grounding time filled with enough reality checks to put you firmly in touch with truth. It’s also revealed the importance of your roots, although it may have brought a wake of suffering, either through loss of relatives or a major strain on family relations. Take heart, dear Cancer – all is about to lighten up as Saturn moves out of a difficult aspect to your stars. When this cosmic taskmaster moves into your love and creativity sector in November, you’ll get serious about making more time for romance and self-expression. This also means you’ll be disciplined about your passions instead of throwing your precious energy around willy-nilly!
Expect to stay remarkably connected with others throughout 2012. Mars will be activating your communication for the first half of the year, keeping all your communication gadgets continually buzzing. During the first four months, the red planet will be retrograde, bringing mixed messages and retrospective reverie galore. Cancer folks are forever prone to dwelling in a nostalgic world, and this will be even more acute in 2012. The future is glorious – but first you’ve got to root yourself firmly in the present!
Year 2012 Romantic
Cancer, this is your year to take romance seriously! If you’ve been a dilettante, your time is running out. Saturn will enter your love sector this October and ask you to make important choices about what you will – and won’t – accept in your love life. The cosmic taskmaster planet will also require you to put up or shut up when it comes to romance. No longer can you say one thing and do another. Either you’re in it for the long haul … or you’re a free bird. There’s no longer any in-between.
Friends could easily become lovers, or vice versa, under the lucky auspices of Jupiter in your social sector. It also means you could meet someone very special through your circle of friends. You won’t be spending much time at home this year, so your chances of meeting someone special are multiplied by the amount of time you spend out with friends. Always dress for success, because you never know who you might meet!
Pluto continues to rock the very foundation of your significant relationships. This has been going on for so many years now, it’s starting to feel status quo. You’ve certainly been to hell and back so often in recent times that you’ve grown accustomed to picking up the pieces and starting over. The redeeming factor of this intense transit is that each time you go through a personal cataclysm, you emerge that much stronger. Your ability to regenerate is astonishing at this point. You’ve weeded out the toxic relationship patterns and – more importantly – the negative people from your life. When it comes to love, you are the Phoenix!
Well here we go….. Happy New Year and may it be filled with all you love, enjoy and need.
Some Guinness was spilled on the barroom floor, when the pub was shut for the night. Out of his hole crept a wee brown mouse and stood in the pale moonlight.
He lapped up the frothy brew from the floor, then back on his haunches he sat.
And all night long you could hear him roar, ‘Bring on the goddam cat!’
HAPPY St. Patrick’s Day!!!
Happy New Year! Another one behind us and the new year is full of possibility and hope. I’ve spent the past ten years with work being my number one priority but think this year I may be ready to change that a bit. It will still always be in the “Top 3” because I don’t really know how to do anything half way, everything I involve myself in is sort of all or nothing but I think I am finally getting tired of being single and just may set out about changing that. Sort of a scary thought at this point in my life, I am pretty used to doing as I please when I please and never being accountable to any one else for it. Not to mention the only time in my life I went for the whole committed relationship thing it was the absolute worst of experiences. But we learn from these things right?, and I have always tried to confront that which I am most afraid of so here’s to courage, bravery and the adventure of the unknown.
The most positive and exciting thing for me will be getting back to living my life unfettered by the dreaded anxiety attacks. I think I have finally got them beat. For a while there even the sight of the smallest snowflake would set them off and I made it through a full on blizzard without having one. Trust me it’s a major accomplishment and feels absolutely awesome! Those stupid things can turn your whole world upside down and even at my worst I knew I was lucky because I was never as ruled by them as some other poor people I have seen go through it. I know I could have probably resolved the whole thing quite some time ago had I opted to take pills for it but that’s just not the route for me. I needed to know I could beat them, totally on my own and in doing so I can be confident that they won’t be coming back.
So last year I posted my 2010 Yearly Horoscope and decided I would review it periodically throughout the year to test the validity of such a thing. That post can be found here http://www.kerrianne.com/2010/01/01/happy-new-year/ . Now it’s time for the new post with this year’s horoscope to see what the new year will bring.
Cancer Outlook for 2011
Cancer The Carb
Year 2011 Overview
Just when you thought that life couldn’t possibly throw any more twists or turns along life’s once tedious path, along comes the unpredictable but exhilarating energy of 2011 (operative word being ‘exhilarating’). Partnerships continue to confront you with your deepest needs and fears but your career shows incredible promise and renewal. You receive the lucky touch of Jupiter from January to June. Expect major expansion and recognition on all fronts.
Promotions, opportunities to expand your social world and work-related travel are all potential gifts when the wheel of fortune spins in your favor for the first half of the year. The second half of 2011 brings a spectacular slew of new friends, alliances and networking opportunities when Jupiter moves into your house of dreams, goals and community. Venus showers you with extra doses of love and cash for the month of July, just in time for your birthday. And Mars brings the action, energy and work in August and early September.
Get ready to jet set this spring and/or summer when the planet of glamour enters your long-distance travel sector this April. Your homebody instincts give way to the lure of travel and adventure in 2011. Fall and winter bring the return of dreamy Neptune to your sector of transformation for one last jaunt between August and 2012.
Year 2011 Romantic
The South Node quickly finishes the run in Cancer by early January, calling up choices you’ve made in the past and asking you to learn from any mistakes that weakened your personal integrity. You’re learning to trust your gut when it comes to love and relationships rather than seeing what you want to see. You’re also getting in touch with just how sensitive you are and how important it is not take on other people’s emotional baggage.
The planetary heavyweight, Saturn ruling karmic lessons continues his transit through the relationship sign of Libra (consequently at the very core of your horoscope.) Lessons that began in 2010 in the love department get put to the test and require you to go even deeper. You’re getting the courage to cut the umbilical cords that have only served to choke your growth. Comfort and security are one thing, but if you’re wasting your time, you’re wasting your time, Cancer. You can no longer get away with rationalizing your feelings. The truth is in your belly.
Pluto, the lord of the underworld and deep, one-way transformation continues to reveal any repressed issues and power struggles in significant relationships. Consider that you’re only in the early stages of a heavy long-term process of self-discovery and shedding skin. Letting go has never been more essential to your overall wellbeing. Relationships take on a heavier vibe and ask you to commit thereby eliminating any residual fluff. Those relationships that no longer serve you will fall away, ready or not. And there is no going back under Pluto’s inevitable one-way metamorphosis.
I’ll be back in 2012 to check this out and post on the past!
Happy New Year!!
Happy New Year! Wow this year went by quickly. Gasp! Only 7 months until 40 ewwwww! Yes that was the first thing I thought of.
So sitting here waiting for my nails to dry. Have to be spiffy for tomorrow night.
I currently have a serious case of buyer’s remorse and am looking for any possible way to get out of my new car lease. I should have sucked it up and payed a higher monthly payment for the Yukon but noooooo, I decided to be financially responsible for a change and went with the Acura MDX. Hate it! Don’t get me wrong it’s a good car but just not for me. I miss my GMC 🙁
Recently had one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. Day after the blizzard I’m driving on the NY State Thruway and some asshole throws a kitten out of the car right in front of me. I tried to swerve, threw myself into the unplowed lane but it wasn’t enough and I killed that little kitten. I keep seeing his little face, can’t sleep, cry every time I look at my cats. What kind of POS does something like that? I hope the bastard dies a slow, frightening and horrific death. Truly.
Works been good, this upcoming year should be pretty exciting. We are moving to our new office space next week. I am so drawing a blank on what to write here but I want to make one last post for the year.
On a personal note I have been thinking about a particular someone an awful lot lately. Usually when that happens they pop back into my life. It’s about time too. I’ll be sure to post on here the result of that.
So that’s it can’t think of anything else right now so I will bid farewell to 2010 and hope for the best in 2011. Happy and healthy New Year!
It’s not bad enough that I don’t have a three-day weekend for the holiday I caught the friggin plague from Ry. I am miserable and cranky. (And ever so grateful to whomever came up with the idea for Puffs Plus with lotion.) I tried to venture out earlier but even going to the supermarket wore me out.
So during my wonderfully exciting weekend I have managed to catch two really good movies. Yesterday I finally got around to watching Hot Tub Time Machine. Loved it! Especially the soundtrack. I have to remember to add it to my Amazon wish list. Now the only John Cusack movie I haven’t seen yet is 2012. For some reason I am just never in the mood to watch it.
Today I watched Surrogates with Bruce Willis. My nerdy self of course loved this sci-fi flick. It’s a scary thought considering how much people get addicted to being on-line and replacing real life with their “Second” life. Watched that using the new Netflix membership. Yes indeed I am really bored.
I did just make a jackpot find of a whole box of unread books. I received them right before Christmas and for the life of me couldn’t remember what I did with the box. I eventually began to think I was mistaken and wasn’t missing anything. The box went under my bed and I of course NEVER venture under there unless searching for a missing kitty. And now I am going to go pick one to read. Happy 4th!
