Love and Relationships for Cancer
Like Taurus, Cancer likes committed relationships. Cancerians function best when the relationship is clearly defined and everyone knows his or her role. When they marry it is usually for life. They are extremely loyal to their beloved. But there is a deep little secret that most Cancerians will never admit to: commitment or partnership is really a chore and a duty to them. They enter into it because they know of no other way to create the family that they desire. Union is just a way – a means to an end – rather than an end in itself. The family is the ultimate end for them.
If you are in love with a Cancerian you must tread lightly on his or her feelings. It will take you a good deal of time to realize how deep and sensitive Cancerians can be. The smallest negativity upsets them. Your tone of voice, your irritation, a look in your eye or an expression on your face can cause great distress for the Cancerian. Your slightest gesture is registered by them and reacted to. This can be hard to get used to, but stick by your love – Cancerians make great partners once you learn how to deal with them. Your Cancerian lover will react not so much to what you say but to the way you are actually feeling at the moment.
Cancer Love Horoscope 2014 - Love and Relationship trends 2014
Saturn in Scorpio, Your Fifth House of True Love until December 2014
Romance certainly has been a touchy point for Cancer ever since Saturn, the "tough love" teacher planet, settled into your love sector in Octomber 2012. Happily, Saturn will leave this area of your chart in early 23 December, 2014, so in the meantime, you are learning a great deal about matters of the heart.
Let's take a moment to review what might have happened in your love life since 2012 when Saturn first arrived in your fifth house of love and romance. The fifth house is all about romance and fun, but Saturn is all about hard work and sacrifice. As you see, hosting Saturn in that house is a bit like an astrological oxymoron, as Saturn is not exactly a lighthearted planet. Single Cancer were (and still are) among the most affected by this condition, for Saturn was in the house of brand new or newly ongoing love, not the house of established love and marriage. Saturn often brings enforced separations, often due to circumstances beyond our control. Here are some examples.
If you are single and dating, you may have noticed that the only interesting person(s) you have met over the past two years were ones that were based in a city very far from yours. With Saturn in the fifth house, you would be prone to meet partners who (for example) were either living at a distance, in graduate school studying all the time, or need to travel a lot for work. There are other instances that would explain why your partner is unavailable. Your new love interest may not yet be divorced (or worse, not even planning to leave), or else may still be pining over a long lost breakup in a previous relationship. How frustrating! No matter how much time you have together now, it probably does not feel like enough time. There were obstacles, for sure.
If you are a parent, you may have experienced a different manifestation from Saturn. The fifth house rules the care and love of children, too. You may have been very worried about the welfare of one (or all) of your children lately, say, because you may have been going through a divorce and were worried about how your children would cope. Or, if you found that your child has a disorder and needs medical or psychological help, the time Saturn spent (and will continue to spend) in your fifth house was time to address that problem and get wise advice from professionals. If one child was not doing well in school, you may have opted for costly tutors to help your child get on his feet.
If you have an older child, say, in college or even who has graduated college, you may have had to give your son or daughter money or their former bedroom back to help your offspring survive economically. With Saturn now touring your fifth house of children, you may have had (or may soon will have) to go into debt to help your child.
Not all situations required money, but rather time, which is still another precious resource Saturn rules. If you had your first baby during Saturn's stay, as one example, you may have found the changeover from single and free to married with baby to be a tricky transition. You may have been surprised to find out that babies need a lot more time and attention than you assumed! Saturn asks us to personally sacrifice things for a larger, more important goal, and here he is teaching you the value of delayed gratification.
Concerning pregnancy, some Cancer experienced a different side to Saturn—the tendency to bring delays. In this case, you may have decided to delay a pregnancy because the time was not quite right to start a family. If that describes your situation, after Saturn leaves your fifth house in December you likely won't have as pressing a need to hold off starting your family as you did previously. Something will change, and it may make you very excited about inviting the stork to visit.
Be patient—Saturn will not bar you from finding love, having a baby, or finishing your project, but Saturn will set up a few obstacles to test your flexibility, adaptability, devotion, loyalty, maturity, and patience. By now you have become quite an expert at surviving Saturn's tests, and in 2014 you will still become more practical and experienced in dealing with these matters.
Jupiter is in Cancer and during The First Half of the Year, You are the Celestial Favorite
You may have looked high and low for your one true love over the past few years if you are single, and things may have turned up empty. You didn't have spectacular aspects for finding love, dear Cancer. It wasn't you—other parts of life were demanding your prime attention. Now, just when you were about to give up on love, a miracle arrives. You appear to be on the cusp of a fateful meeting; from January through July 27, 2014, your outlook for love has never been better.
The ancient astrologers always wrote about how dazzling the year was when Jupiter visited our own sign. Life can't always be this special, but when it is, you must enjoy it to the fullest. Jupiter, the great benefactor planet, is now in Cancer and will give you a wild advantage in finding the person who is likely to be your one true love. Your period of opportunity may seem short, but it will be packed with incredibly potent vibrations. You'll feel confident, secure, and supremely attractive—all qualities considered aphrodisiacs when it comes to catching the eye of someone special. During the first half of 2014, you may be bewildered at the level of popularity you enjoy, but just give in to it. As I said earlier, this is a landmark year that will set the tone for many years to come!
In truth, Jupiter first entered Cancer last year, back on June, 2013, and has been in your sign ever since. As January begins, Jupiter in Cancer will continue to ramp up and become increasingly stronger. You will have until July 27 to make exceptional progress. Have your wish list ready, because it's not if you will succeed, but when!
Many new faces will stream into your life now, adding a sensational level of excitement. Among the new people you meet will be at least one intriguing person you will want to get to know better. Your chances of finding love have never been better, so do your part by being open to new types and by circulating quite a bit during the first half of 2014.
So as you see, romance could be wonderful for you, and truly, this is an area you are due for special consideration. Yet it goes beyond Jupiter—I haven't even scratched the surface as to why you should be excited by your romantic prospects.
