Read what your sign’s 2018 horoscope predictions mean for you right here.
Despite the extended sunshine and poolside hangs, August 2017 was a tough month for sensitive Cancers. Real shit came to the surface last summer, forcing you to confront the dark corners of your psyche.
But wait, it’s February 2018. Why are we talking about six months ago? Well, darling Cancer, everything is cyclical. The total lunar eclipse in Leo on January 31 is part of the same celestial series that occurred during the summer, causing many emotionally charged themes to be reactivated.
Use the next few weeks to reflect on how much has changed in your life since last August. You are no longer defining yourself through external projections of “success.” You are no longer comparing your happiness to others’ achievements. Though you may find yourself experiencing occasional jealousy (hey, you’re only human), the eclipse series has ushered in exponential growth. A new chapter begins on February 15 with a partial solar eclipse in Aquarius: Now that you’ve begun to explore self-acceptance, it’s time to help others achieve the same positive realizations through kindness, empathy, and compassion.
Venus — the planet of love, beauty, and money — glides into fellow water sign Pisces on February 10. Though Cancerian energy is often associated with domestic interests, your passions will be guided by wanderlust during this transit. Pisces activates the area of your chart associated with travel, philosophy, and higher education. Coupled Cancers should consider booking a last-minute Valentine’s Day trip with their boo, while solo crabs may suddenly begin exploring romance with a long-distance interest.
When Mercury and the sun cruise into the Pisces constellation on February 17 and 18, respectively, you’ll be ready to set sail. Go ahead and bust out of your shell, Cancer darling. Pack your bags, dust off that passport, and prepare for some jet-setting. (Don’t forget to grab your travel-sized of Ole Henrikson’s 3 Little Wonders Mini for powerful, on-the-go skin repair.) If you’re staying local, consider expanding your horizons in the comfort of your own home. This is a great time to enroll in an online course or join a book club. Pisces season fosters intellectual abundance, so make sure you’re seizing all opportunities to encourage that growth.
