Cancer February 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


This is the month when the work/life balance challenges of recent years make sense, as you realise that rather than challenges this was preparation for being able to have it all. In a way February is hub for all the major comings and goings of the year, with the main themes that will dominate the year falling in to place and new themes developing. One of the major new themes developing this month is a more sudden coming together of different strands from the past, at a time when you may have thought all potential had been exhausted. That theme is what is happening across the income, work and career fronts.

When Mercury left your work sector last month he wrapped up over three years of continuous planetary activity, including the three years Saturn, hard taskmaster of the cosmos, had spent here. This came just as Uranus and Eris were turning direct on the career front, but were also at a standstill. In the early weeks of your new professional year everything looked like it was coming to a halt. Yet the juice was turned back on in the final days of January, with an explosion of developments across the income, work and career fronts this month.

Where Mars’ return to your work sector late last month has brought things back on line, a total lunar eclipse in your income sector at the start of the month will electrify things across the board. Yet this comes as Jupiter and Saturn, the two most powerful planets in the solar system settle in for their long haul journeys to your romantic and relationship sectors. At the same time the Sun, Venus and Mercury all return to an adventurous part of your chart. You really can have it all, but only because of what you’ve learned from the work/life balance challenges in the past.

Love 2017Cancer February 2018 Love Horoscope

There are very similar themes in play on the romantic and relationship fronts this month. This was also the case last month and as events on each front is mirroring the other, it really does look like the love and relationship gods are working in unison. Last month had a huge amount of focus on romantic matters, with the year starting with Mars and Jupiter aligned in your romantic sector. This was the first time that the planets of passion and luck have aligned here in decades. Yet while Mars left on the 27th January, with Jupiter here until November this is when the real journey begins. This is your luckiest year for love and matters of the heart in over a decade, with things just now hitting their stride. Things become more confident, but a lot less urgent.

This mirrors what is happening on the relationship front, with your most powerful relationship year in decades, having had its own push last month. January was Saturn’s first full month in your relationship sector in three decades and at the time of last month’s New Moon there were six planets working to get this new journey underway. Yet in the early hours of the 1st February Mercury will leave your relationship sector, leaving behind Saturn and Pluto. With Saturn here until December 2020 and Pluto until 2024, on the relationship front it becomes more about the journey as well.

The last few months have seen a huge amount invested by both the love and relationship gods, yet both reach a point where they can pull back and enjoy the journey, at the same time. This makes Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationship’s return to an adventurous part of your chart on the 11th February important for both, for from here she is able to focus on the journey on both fronts.

Money 2017Cancer February 2018 Money Horoscope

While February is always a month when the focus is on your financial situation and money matters as a whole, a month that starts and ends with the Moon in your income sector was always going to have some competition. When you throw in a lunar eclipse in your income sector and a solar eclipse in your financial sector and that competition is going to continue all month, making this an important month on both fronts. You not only start the month with the Moon in your income sector, but with a total lunar eclipse already underway.

With Mars in his early days in your work sector and the wheels just starting to move on the career front, this could be a major catalyst. As an eclipsing Full Moon, this will put pressure on the Sun and Venus in your financial sector, but any financial tension will contribute to the push that a breakthrough needs. Falling just as things are taking off on the job front increases the potential for triggering a major breakthrough across the income, work and career fronts.

Until the Moon comes full circle and returns to your income sector on the 27th February, income forces will continue to simmer away behind the scenes. Yet with the Sun in your financial sector until the 19th February, this is when the focus is always on your financial situation and money matters. A solar eclipse here on the 16th February will allow money matters to have their turn, with the potential for unexpected developments and new beginnings on the financial front. Venus, in your financial sector until the 11th February, will be gone by then but she will leave you with your financial confidence, desires and expectations fuelled. You have Mercury and his smart head for money to work with until the 18th February.

Career 2017Cancer February 2018 Career Horoscope

Just when things should be dialling back on the job front and you should have another month to catch your breath before things start to move on the career front, your professional year is already back in the fast lane. Even during the three years that Saturn was here didn’t bring the fast pace that you will experience this month, bringing a clear sense that something has shifted. It was Saturn’s departure from your work sector just before Christmas that wrapped up a three year visit that had kept your work hat on continuously since September 2014, but in a slow and measured way.

By February all of the faster moving planets will have left your work sector and while Saturn stayed on, paint dries faster than the hard taskmaster of the cosmos moves things on the job front. The Sun and Saturn both left your work sector just before Christmas, Venus on Christmas Day and Mercury in early January. This left you with no planets here for the first time in over three years. With the Sun, Mercury and Venus not returning to your career sector until next month, this should be a quiet month, yet it is anything but.

You can thank Mars for that, with the warrior planet of the cosmos having not only returned to your work sector on the 27th January, but to find Saturn gone. Without Saturn slowing things down and with over three years of untapped job potential, Mars will go to town. Not leaving until the 18th March, the warrior planet of the cosmos will spend the whole of March firing things up on the job front. While new career developments don’t begin until early next month, with a total lunar eclipse on the income front at the start of the month, this is going to fire things up across the income, work and career fronts.
