Cancer March 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


There are two major camps in play this month and they are both so strong and so extreme that you almost have two alternate realities playing out at the same time. On one hand, starting the month with six planets in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery and lucky Jupiter in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, means that this is an adventurous and playful month. Even though three of those planets in an adventurous part of your chart will be gone by the 21st March, Jupiter’s retrograde turn means that on the playful and romantic front, rather than dial back the doors are opening to the past and second chances.

Playful and adventurous forces are now locked into place and will continue to work together for the rest of the year. With major relationship developments this month as well, March is a month that is all about your personal life, your relationships, love life and is a fun and adventurous month. Yet at the same time you have reached a stunning and game changing month across the income, work and career fronts. Things have been brewing for some time, but Mercury’s return to your career sector on the 6th March and Venus’ on the 7th March will flip a switch that will set everything in motion.

With Mars leaving your work sector on the 18th March, this is going to fuel something across the income, work and career fronts that will take on a life of its own. Yet this is also a playful and adventurous month, which presents you with a problem, but also puts the challenges of the past few years into perspective. For 16 months leading up to December 2017, work/life balance was your biggest challenge, but now that this is no longer being pushed, you can appreciate why this was so necessary. With the right work/life balance and a balance between work and play you can have it all.

Love 2017Cancer March 2018 Love Horoscope

With lucky Jupiter in your romantic sector for the first time in 12 years and Saturn in your relationship sector for the first time in three decades, every month of 2018 is going to be an important month for romantic and relationship matters. Yet this month sees some big and important shifts on both fronts. It starts with Jupiter’s retrograde turn in your romantic sector on the 9th March, with the planet of luck opening the doors to the past and second chances, while beginning a four month nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane. Until she leaves an adventurous part of your chart on the 7th March Venus, planet of love will be doing her best to bring the spirit of romance and adventure together, fuelling a sense of anticipation for the journey ahead.

This comes at a time when relationship matters appear settled. Saturn returned to your relationship sector just before Christmas and with the Sun, Venus and Mercury been and gone and now accustomed to working with Pluto, it is now more about the journey. With Saturn in your relationship sector until December 2020 and Pluto until November 2024, here this really is all about the journey. However, with the Sun not returning to your relationship sector until December and Venus and Mercury not returning until January 2019, it looks like things have now settled into a new normal.

Except nothing could be further from the truth, with Mars’ return on the 18th March shaking things up. This is the first time in our lifetime that you have had Pluto, Mars and Saturn in your relationship sector at the same time. Pluto is trying to change things up and Saturn is working to keep things stable, but Mars is going to change those dynamics, shifting things to the change side of the scale. With Mars spending an extraordinary amount of time here this year, not really wrapping up his influence until September, whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, you can expect some exciting relationship developments.

Money 2017Cancer March 2018 Money Horoscope

The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Juno’s departure from your financial sector in the second half of February has taken the spotlight off your financial situation and money matters, as happens at that time every year. However, unlike other years you hadn’t just experienced two eclipses and there isn’t usually ongoing momentum on the income or financial fronts. Last year, when the Sun left your financial sector in February there was no more planetary activity until January 2018 and there is never usually any planetary activity on the income front at this time of year. That changed with the lunar nodes’ return to your two money houses last May, where they will stay until November.

This was the reason for a total solar eclipse in your income sector and a lunar eclipse in your financial sector last August and for both a total lunar eclipse in your income sector and solar eclipse in your financial sector last month. Without the Sun here there will be no more eclipses until July, but things won’t go off the boil. With the lunar nodes still in your two money houses, the wheels will keep turning. However, when the last of the planets left your financial sector on the 24th February this changed the dynamics, shifting the balance of power from money matters and back onto income matters.

For while the South Node’s position in your financial sector will keep the wheels turning there are no longer any planets there, where you have Ceres in your income sector and will do until June. Even then, with Venus arriving before she leaves and then continuous planetary activity until January, income matters will continue to enjoy the balance of power, at least until Mars returns to your financial sector in May. For now though, with Ceres in retrograde motion until the 19th March and new developments on the job and career fronts, there is the potential for untapped income potential, as you wait for the tide to turn.

Career 2017Cancer March 2018 Career Horoscope

March is always the point in any year when things become more professionally focused, with the Sun’s return to your career sector on the 21st March something that happens at this time every year. This year things not only kick off earlier, they have been evolving for months and an impact over the coming months can only be described as game changing. Even more Mercury returns to your career sector on the 6th March and Venus on the 7th March, with Mars in your work sector until the 18th March, things are busy. However, they are likely to take off once Venus and Mercury return to your career sector and not just on the job and career fronts, but on the income front as well.

In your career sector from the 7th March to the 31st March, Venus will use that time to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. Yet as she, Mercury and the Sun on the 21st March return to your career sector something unexpected is likely to kick in. Since 2010 all three have returned each year to find Uranus, quietly working behind the scenes for the last eight years. As all three return this month they would expect a chance to regroup, but nothing more. That is not what will happen, for Uranus is leaving in May and this is the last time that the Sun, Mercury and Venus will meet up with the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected here in our lifetime.

This is show time, a chance to bring everything you’ve been working towards over the last eight years home. Mercury, who is closely aligned to Uranus, will recognise this from the get go. This could be why instead of moving through in 15 days, Mercury will turn retrograde on the 23rd March, pulling back with a chance to go back over old ground. This means Mercury won’t leave until the 14th May, just two days before Uranus leaves. As Mercury returns his message to Uranus will be ‘okay, let’s make this happen’. This will fire up Mars, with his final weeks in your work sector likely to be the most manic and the most productive.
