Areas of Expansion in 2014 for Cancer: Personality, Body Image, Money, Possessions, Resources
Your Cancer 2014 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until July 16, 2014, your personality, image, and confidence in yourself continue to expand to new levels, particularly after March 6th. Cancer, you are seeing whole new possibilities. Your vision of life is panoramic. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world are growing exponentially. Freedom is something you seek, but be wary of the costs of freedom when it’s pursued without necessary attention to responsibilities.
This cycle that runs until July 2014 is a strong one for self-improvement efforts, particularly because Jupiter rules your sector of health, work, and self-care. Expanding your horizons through higher learning or travel might also figure strongly. This is a time for aligning your behavior with what you believe is right. You are taking more “me” time, which is in fact long overdue. There can be new or improved employment, and increased attention to health, fitness, and well-being.
You are seeking out a new beginning – a fresh start, of sorts – and your desire to do right is especially strong. Work or projects that you have been pursuing in private or behind the scenes may now begin to pay off. There is less focus on serving and helping others now, perhaps because this is no longer as necessary (for example, a child can go off to college, or even the end of a relationship that took up a lot of your energy and resources, for which you are now enjoying some level of freedom from), and now you can put some of your personal interests on the front burner.
You won’t feel much like sitting around during this period of your life. You are hungry for new experiences. Everyday stresses that may have frustrated you in the past now seem almost inconsequential, as your vision is lifted above the mundane. As such, your ability to manage stress and pressure increases. You are more tolerant in your attitude towards others.
Early February and May are especially strong for creative self-expression, finding yourself through travel or connections to different cultures and perspectives, and monetizing a hobby or pastime. May is good for balancing optimism with realism.
Potential negatives with this position: Weight gain, pompous behavior, restlessness, over-confidence, wastefulness. See to it that these things don’t ruin an otherwise excellent period. As well, in your desire to “start over”, watch that you don’t blind yourself to responsibilities.
There might also be times, especially in January-February and April, when a partner, parent, or authority figure feels threatened or is put off by your newfound displays of freedom and independence. A partner in particular could be trying to control you out of fear that they will lose you, for example.
From July 16th onward, money, personal possessions, and self-worth begin to expand and grow. Your desire for security and comfort is hearty now, and you’ll pursue these things with more confidence and verve. You feel that you deserve more!
This cycle that will be in influence until August 2015 is strong for attracting more money from your professional endeavors and for expanding a business. You might also more easily attract support from others (but be careful if you are suddenly in the position to receive, for example, a credit line or sizeable loan – spend wisely). You should certainly watch for overspending. Late September is better for making big-ticket item purchases, if necessary.
Potential negatives: Is it really possible that more money or resources could be negative? Yes, when the attitude towards money is careless. If you are accumulating personal possessions too quickly, this can lead to clutter and disorganization. If you’re overconfident about your ability to make money and to continue to do so, then you might take foolish risks, such as borrowing from your future, and this tendency tends to be especially strong in August and early September. There can be a conflict over someone else’s resources or money, or a frustrating clash of values. Watch for laziness or over-indulgence.
Otherwise, this is a good period for bringing a fresh, positive, and confident attitude towards your own self-worth and value, and to your practical affairs, including work and career. From late September forward especially, opportunities to attract improved conditions in your career and a boost in reputation can arise. Your attitude is a “can do” one now. New business ventures can be especially successful.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: romance, Children, Creativity, Entertainment, Recreation, Self-Expression
Your Cancer 2014 Horoscope points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary “slimming down” in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
The area of your life that requires a “back to basics” approach is the sector that rules creativity, dating and romance, pleasure, children, hobbies, and creative pastimes. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen. This influence has been with you since October 2012 and continues off and on until September 2015.
Tests can come to your romantic life during this cycle. For those of you who are single, there can be some reluctance to enter into light-hearted romantic relationships. If you do, you do so cautiously, and you are attracted to more mature or stable people during this cycle. Because you are more discriminating now, the pickings might appear to be slim.
Those of you who are dating might feel some loneliness, as it can be hard to find what you are looking for at this time. An existing romance may be tested but strong ones strengthen further. Those Cancers who are in committed partnerships could find the romantic or fun element of the relationship becomes a strong area of focus during this cycle, for better or for worse. Keeping this aspect of your partnership alive requires work. A romantic partner could feel like a “heavy” at this time, and you might feel restricted in terms of making acquaintances and enjoying other people’s company. For those single and looking, be careful that you don’t project a negative attitude without even realizing it, as this can intimidate some.
Those of you who are parents could feel the weight of responsibilities towards children during this cycle. They may require more of your attention now.
Creatively speaking, you are a little more serious in your approach. You might be turning a hobby into a business now, or you might find that there is less time for creative hobbies, pastimes, and entertainment.
You can be filled with desire, or circumstances create a need, for more structure in all of these areas of life, including children, romance, creativity, and recreation throughout 2014. The more positive effects of this influence are more likely to be felt in May-June and August.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Career, Reputation, Status
Your 2014 Cancer Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March 2011, you entered a lengthy cycle in which career and public image matters can be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. This influence continues throughout 2014 and beyond.
Your career, professional projects, reputation, and public image continue to speed up, stimulate, and open up this year. These areas of life can be unpredictable – the wild card area of life – but also highly stimulating and innovative. You can bring fresh insight into your work. You can also learn to let go of limiting self-consciousness. As long as you don’t push it too far, you can free yourself from some of the fears you have of not living up to others’ expectations, particularly those of parents or society in general.
This may be a time when you take an unexpected turn in your work. Although this can happen in 2014, this influence spans many years. Make sure you don’t jump on a bandwagon that is impractical. Also, while you prefer to set your own pace in your work, try not to become a loner in your professional life. Others can have important input. By nature, you are not the biggest of risk takers, but more courage is with you this year.
Challenges in these areas of life may come when Uranus squares Pluto in April and December. For some of you, a partnership can generate gossip or there could be some challenges finding a balance between a relationship and your career goals. Watch that you don’t let either slip in preference for the other. Also watch for over the top behavior in February, when you are inclined to push too hard, too fast or take foolish risks. When Uranus trines Jupiter starting in September, wonderful energy is with you for gently pushing the boundaries and making progress. Income and work can improve considerably at this time with a fresh, progressive attitude.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Partnerships, Friends, Groups, Creativity, Romance, Career, Home Life
Your 2014 Cancer Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It’s a time for “out with the old, in with the new”.
Attitudes towards partnerships, close personal relationships, compromise, and significant others continue to transform this year. February is strong for these matters, when sharing adventurous experiences and perspectives on life can boost or attract a partnership. Travel or foreigners can be part of the picture now. More challenging periods are possible in January, April, and November-December, when career and public demands or goals can seem to be at odds with a partnership, and when your own desire for freedom clashes with the agenda of a significant other.
In 2014, friendships, group associations, creativity, and romantic involvements are evolving in important ways. There is a need to learn about the value of the team in your life. New group associations may be made, friendships can expand, and you are challenged to find a balance between your romantic life and your associations with friends. Creative endeavors are strong. Romance, creativity, and children are your challenge and your joy this year.
As well, your career and family life demand attention and changes are required in order to strike a balance between the two. You are challenged to improve your domestic life this year.
