Cancer, as a sign associated with the Moon, you are considered “changeable and moody”. This year 2016 you easily could describe your immediate world “changeable and moody”.
Cancer 2016 Predictions For Work
The Cancer Horoscope 2016 for Work shows that Saturn, the “teacher” planet of the zodiac will continue to occupy your sector of health, work and your daily routines. Cancer, you probably are already dealing with its energy which can be very different depending on the sign and the person involved. This planet impacts your health, work and daily life. For some of you might be overly tired or drawn. Many of you have had bone and teeth problems. Another manifestion is less work or a lack of enjoying your work and your daily life. Those working could find responsibilities a bit tiring. Others simply might be bored.
In 2016 your work and/or daily life become a major focus. You might be more tired, have taken on too much or feel overburdened. Do take good care of you. Get more sleep than usual. If overwhelmed, ask for help. See a doctor. See a dentist. Be honest with yourself if you have taken too much on. Be honest with yourself if you don’t like what you are doing. If you are doing work that you dislike, your attitude will filter through the best camouflage. Before the boss axes you, find a more suitable job, even if it isn’t in your chosen field. Many of you will opt for a complete change of career.
Saturn however, will be in retrograde motion (backwards) between late March and mid August. This can be hard on your health where you may have back or knee problems, or you feel weighed down by too many responsibilities which may lead to a melancholic or depressing phase. Your work situation may be oppressive or you have to work in sordid conditions, or where it is dark, cramped or damp. It may seem as though your working life is not giving you any rewards.
During the retrograde phase you may take a bleak attitude towards your health, work and daily routines. Your health may suffer due to overwork. You will need to take some respite where possible. During the direct phase (between January and late March and mid August and December 2016) you can realistically assess what work is your responsibility, and what tasks should be assigned to another. You may have to take a tonic, multivitamins or place your health on a higher priority than previously.
The 2016 Cancer Horoscope also shows that you will be testing limits with authority figures. You might find yourself in power struggles in the year 2016. Ask yourself why you are drawing these experiences. Your need for control or an innate insecurity might be playing into these situations. Resolve the issue from within. Accept responsibility.
In 2016, it might be important to go within. The above mentioned characteristics often occur when one is out of sync with one’s life. Look honestly at what you don’t like. For instance, your job? Do you like the field? You might want to see what would need to happen for you to be happier with your work. The liability is losing the job. Though you might put your best foot forward, somehow your true feelings come through. If there has to be a cutback, more often than not, the boss will look at the unhappy employee. Health issues though legitimate and painful often stem from unhappy emotional situations. In this house Saturn calls to you to look at the quality of your daily life.
This planet demands more commitment to you as a person and an inner knowledge of what you want. Saturn used well can improve the quality of your life in the highest form. If you resist the process of looking at these issues, Saturn can be a hard transit creating events to force the same process. You will come through this transit much better and a lot happier. Don’t resist it! It also is excellent for those Cancers who want to lose weight and become more fit.
Cancer Horoscope 2016 Career
Added to this picture is the awakening and deconditioning bursts of Uranus, which continues to move through the area of profession, place out in the world and outside of the shell of home security. The Cancer Horoscope 2016 for Career shows that Uranus, the planet of change, will continue to occupy your sector of career, reputation, status and how you are seen in the eyes of the world, during which time he will be in retrograde phase between late July and late December 2016. This often brings huge changes to where you are in terms of your position in life and can offer unpredictable leaps and bounds up the ladder of success.
During the retrograde phase it may seem that the changes are coming at you thick and fast so this can be a hectic time when you feel you cannot cope with so much going on. During the direct phase (January to July 2016) these changes will feel more comfortable and convince you that you are now on the most appropriate path.
According to 2016 Cancer zodiac predictions there are changes coming, so be ready and help them come in. Don’t resist, for Uranus just loves to play. Puck and pull the rug out from under you, just to see what you’ll do. Uranus hates routine, so a new career might be on the horizon. If you are unceremoniously dumped out of one job, don’t fight it. Look at it as liberation from the status quo and go with it and see where it leads. It might be the most liberating event of your life.
Uranus may act as a quick change artist juggling light bulbs of inspiration. With this last quarter square so much mental activity can be stressful, particularly to the stomach, for women the female organs, and for all, the containers of the body. Hydration during a this transit is a necessity as it cools the what Uranus heats up. Uranus is sparking ideas of how one’s place in the world is up for reinvention.
Uranus, this unpredictable, illuminating planet always brings surprises. Events occur out of the blue. Many times they bring extraordinary, happy events that cannot be anticipated. Uranus as a planet strips away all the trim that is not necessary. Uranus wants and demands authenticity.
Uranus on top of the chart in the Cancer 2016 Horoscope is providing some unusual leadership opportunities. In 2016 you may have quite a few surprises in the work arena, some good- some not so good, but you have grown. Your career reflects the person you really are at this point. Some of you might opt to go into business by yourself, or become more independent. Many of you will utilize what they have learned in the recent years, and turn it into a profession. Do not hesitate to open up to the unique and different idea. It is the most likely to work.
In 2016 Uranus will give you a more complete glimpse of this planet’s message over the last few years. It might be pointing to a correction. This will be the last opportunity in your life to do so. Many of Cancers have responded to the gist of this planet and no longer feel its energy.
Horoscope 2016 Cancer – Love and Relationships
The 2016 Cancer Horoscope for Love shows that Pluto, the planet of transformation is traveling in your opposite sign Capricorn. Pluto, the transformer of the zodiac, will continue to occupy your sector of marriage and business partnerships and any public presentations. The evolutionary impulse continues for Cancers especially affecting relationship on a deep Soul level. Cancer is a naturally protective energy. It acts instinctively to nurture and protect. Pluto’s opposition in the solar 7th house of the 2016 horoscope is suggesting, on a deeper emotional level, to consider how your personal mission affects others or is projected onto others.
To those in committed relationships, you might be wide-eyed watching the transformation your sweetie is making. Controlling issues could come out with partners in general. Pluto can bring up issues of power, both in shadow form and as an example of strength and integrity. It all depends what Pluto wants to purify or regenerate. It may be a sense of personal authority in the world. Look at conditioned patterns and the current relevance in your life at this time. Or, become aware and accepting that Shadow is indeed a part of your experience.
Pluto has a dark side. The Romans worshiped “Pluto” as the god of the underworld. It represents today Mafia, gangs and those who wield power in a unlawful manner. If single, do be very careful with your choices. You might be in a situation/relationship before you know it, that you cannot seem to get out. You might “feel” as if others challenge you and need to learn ways not to play into the game. Just don’t play. Some Cancer’s might also become unusually controlling in 2016. Whether you are the controller or the controllee, the common denominator is you. You need to work out power issues at this point in your life.
During 2016 Pluto will turn retrograde (backwards) between mid April and late September. This can literally transform your personal and business relationships overnight. This long range influence which will last until late 2024 can bring a person into your life who changes you completely. However, the 2016 Cancer Astrology points out that it can also be a testing time in a marriage, and care needs to be taken that neither you nor your beloved do not overrule the other.
During the retrograde phase you can look at why you allowed this person to enter your life and change it irrevocably. During the direct phase (January to March 2016 and again from October to the end of the year) your understanding of your motives will reveal this is exactly what you need for personal growth.
If you are a middle to late Cancer native, you might not have felt its impact yet. A likely sign that you are feeling Pluto’s impact would be the running into controlling people no matter which way you turn. The only way to win a power struggle is not to play. Note if you are drawing multiple controlling people. You might have an issue about control and not be aware of it. Otherwise you would not be bringing this type of person into your life. Remember Cancer, you are the common dominator.
Cancer Horoscope 2016 for Education and Travel
The Cancer 2016 Predictions for Education and Travel shows that Neptune, the planet of mystery, will continue to occupy your sector of travel, higher education, studies and connections to foreign people or places. Neptune is transiting in a sister Water sign, Pisces.
Neptune bestows unusual creativity but it can also draw confusion and in some cases, intentional deceit. Hopefully, this cycle will allow your imagination to wander and help inspire you. This same planet in the position it is in encourages travel, delving into spirituality, and higher education. Sometimes it can create an unusual amount of empathy and understanding. For some, a foreigner enters your life. You will learn to think and assess situations differently, because of this person.
The 2016 Cancer astrology indicates that religion can test your concepts of your spiritual faith. You may like the pomp and pageantry more now. What is true and what is dogma? There may be betting scandals in sports. Keep seeking the higher path and raising your vibration so you miss all the pitfalls in the mud, and walk to a higher plane where you escape it all.
Play into your dreams. Research and study how to make them possible this year. Some Cancer’s might travel, while others could go back to school. What is important is to feed your imagination and help make desires become reality. Artists, writers and those in creative fields will benefit particularly and naturally from the transit of Neptune in the hierarchy of the mind. Don’t play into gossip or any behind the scenes activities at work. Be who you are.
Neptune will go into retrograde (backwards) phase between mid June and to the mid of November 2016. This can be an interesting time where your mind and imagination are stimulated to a very high degree. It is a fabulous time to write a book where your creative talents are put to good use. However, it can also cloud your mind with imaginary thoughts that are not based in reality. During the retrograde phase you are perhaps in a more reflective mode of thought than at other times. During the direct phase (January to May and November to December) you will be able to conjure up anything you can imagine and put this to good use through art, music or writing.
The Cancer Horoscope also shows that 2016 will highlight Spirit, imagination, intuition, belief systems as Neptune travels through the solar ninth house. Cancer birthdays enjoy a trine from Neptune and the realms of imagination and alternate realities, resulting in greater ability to share experiences in a fantastical, mystical way. Compassion and inspiration is a hallmark of this transit as is the embodiment of creativity and imagination. Teachers may come forward. Spiritual Journeys may be made. Watch for tendencies to over give due to the loving, heart-opening nature of this transit. Be aware of a rose colored glasses point of view.
Chiron, who is is often called the Wounded Healer is also in Pisces and and some astrologers says that this wound is one that never leaves; however, if there is an opportunity to receive healing, this is a peak time as Chiron trines your Sun. Chiron in Pisces emphasizes the collective wounding. As you heal yourself Cancer, you heal the collective and vice versa. How? Retreats, spiritual nourishment, artistic endeavors, reaching out, volunteering, prayer, collective movements. You will know.
Added to this picture is Jupiter, in your house of communications, that keeps you smiling. The 2016 Cancer Horoscope shows that during the first eight months, the ‘greater benefic’ Jupiter will occupy your sector of communications, siblings, neighbours and short distance travel and will go into retrograde (backwards) phase for four months between January and early May 2016.
This is the perfect time to express yourself, especially verbally or in writing. You could also take up some studies that lead to future progress in your career. You could write that novel you have previously started or become a freelance writer for a magazine. Jupiter exposes Cancers to new intellectual pursuits.
Check in with siblings, neighbors and see what thoughts they might have about your choices. Communicate from the heart. You’re able to be positive despite the heaviness of Saturn. You work well with problems looking for solutions. You also might decide to make a major purchase in 2016 that will add to the quality of you daily life, be it a new computer, or a new set of wheels. Create time to catch up with others. Your sincerity comes through in conversations and your caring mannerisms.
Horoscope Cancer 2016 for Family
On September 9, 2016, Jupiter will change signs and impact your home life for the better. The Cancer Horoscope 2016 for Family shows that if you are alone, you might have a new roommate adding to your happiness.
The Cancer Horoscope for 2016 announce that this is a good time to create a new foundation for material security, but it does square your Cancer sun somewhere along the way and your ego can get the best of you as you over reach or think things can’t fail.
The horoscope also shows that this is a wonderful time to move house as you will tend to choose somewhere that is very spacious and gives you a feeling of freedom of movement. You may feel as though you want to live there forever, so choose wisely. Your home and family will become a source of pleasure and happiness. Others will remodel and spruce up the pad. For Cancer, home is where the heart is. You will spend many happy hours with family, roommates and the dog or cat!
This expansion will be positive. As you become secure, your attitude reflects a relaxed openness. Take advantage of Jupiter’s teachings and blessings in the last fourth months of 2016. The pitfall is to overextend, or overwork at the home front. Ego expansion could be a problem too. Service at home and toward family is emphasized; so is finding meaning and purpose in daily efforts to heal both personal and familial emotional wounds.
