2010: Yearly Overview -- Cancer



by Matthew Currie November 11, 2009 06:28 PM EST

Overview

One thing that all Crabs (astrological Cancers or the seafood type of crab) know deep in their hearts is that someone, somewhere out there knows how great it would be to bust them wide open and eat them with melted butter. The big news for you this year, Cancer, is that Pluto has moved into your Seventh House, which rules marriage, partnerships and close relationships. This means that someone may very well be cracking your heart open in the next year. 

Cancer has a bit of a reputation for enjoying doom and gloom. You don't. You just seem to get more than your fair share of it. It must be that thick shell of yours. Everyone assumes you can just take it.

The good news is that you earned that reputation because you can take it, and more. And often, your greatest moments come when you have overcome the greatest obstacles. Thankfully, the roadblocks you face in 2010 won’t be that devastating, but they’ll certainly give you an opportunity to shine. New support and new energy will be entering your life from unexpected and overlooked people and things, and you’ll be able to soar above it all!

Career

As far as your work life goes, 2010 divides up into two nice, clearly defined chunks: the first half of the year is going to present struggles, and the second half will see a boatload of new opportunities. January and February will be a lot of work –- literally and figuratively -- almost as if everyone ignored their jobs during the run up to Christmas, and then decided to drop everything on your desk. Although your relationships with co-workers may be strained at this time, it isn’t anything you can’t handle. Be careful not to drag too much of that work stress home with you to a partner, particularly in January. Rather than dwell on it, do your best to find a way to take that experience and use it to your benefit.

June and July will bring some exciting opportunities for advancement. You’ll be getting more recognition for your efforts, and the possibility of a raise is in store. If you don’t have a regularly scheduled salary review planned for that time, things may be going well enough that you might want to bring the subject up anyway. Even the seed of that notion planted then can take root later.

March to May will urge you to really do something about your actual cash-on-hand situation. You’ll have both an increased drive to increase your security, and (paradoxically) the urge to overspend. Try to avoid “emotional overspending” during that time, and the rest of the year should work out for you.

Romance

After a year in which you felt that you weren’t being heard -- whether by a spouse, or your calls for an adequate mate went unanswered -- things will be shaking loose in dramatic manner in 2010. Two eclipses this year will have a particular effect on your relationship with a partner. In January, an eclipse in your Partnership House will bring issues to the forefront. If you have an existing relationship, tensions that have been building will become unavoidable; and if you aren’t, you may suddenly find yourself more dissatisfied with that situation (or a new partner may suddenly come into your life). In either case, the more dramatic of the effects may be short-lived but will give you the opportunity to make some long-needed changes.

Pluto also continues its long journey though this department of your life, and Pluto demands change and transformation. Although this doesn’t necessarily mean bad news, it will certainly require that you address any issues between you and your partner, and -- maybe more importantly -- that you question within yourself what a committed relationship really means to you. Is it possible you're in the right relationship for the wrong reason? Could you be in the wrong relationship for the right reason? Inner work can be difficult, especially when it involves another person, but ultimately it’s always worth doing in the long run.

As far as romance in general goes, however, it’s more a good year than a bad one. May and June in particular will see new romantic opportunities coming your way, and will pump new life into a current relationship.
