For Cancers, this year will encourage inner growth as you seek to expand your personal beliefs, your relationships, and your pockets. This is a time to seek new experiences and sharpen your intuitive growth. 2022 is all about physical and spiritual expansion, so you can look forward to a year of abundance and travel. You’re typically the caregiver of those around you and, this year, you’ll be converting that nurturing power to your personal growth.
Cancer, Who You Really Are
Cancers are intuitive, sensitive, and nurturing. Feeling safe, helping others grow, and doing inner work are all huge values to you. Because you’re ruled by the moon, you’re deeply connected with your moods and emotions, although the intensity of your own feelings can often get the better of you, causing you to sometimes spiral or become on edge. As a cardinal sign, you’re filled with sharp instincts and bright ideas, so you have the grit to take initiative and responsibility. Your fourth house ruler of home and family makes you sentimental and family-oriented.
Being a water sign means you have a deep connection with your intuitive side and are psychic to some degree.
These signs feel most at home when they’re taking care of themselves and others. They’re sacrificial; they will do just about anything to ensure the safety and comfort of others. Being ruled by the moon gives them sharp insight into the feelings of not only themselves, but also others – their strongest suit is being an empath and their ability to read a room and address any discomfort.
Career and Money
As Venus enters its retrograde from January 1 to 29, you may feel extra obligated to hone in on your inner boss. You’ll find yourself finding new streams of income and perhaps even dabbling in a new business venture with all the ambition in the air during this time. That’s because this retrograde is asking you to slow down, so you can create a strategy to propel your finances and your career forward.
Jupiter in Pisces is in your house of philosophy, meaning you’ll find yourself exploring different streams of income or experimenting with different revenues. You may even find yourself in a foreign place, whether it’s a job transfer, a new job offer, or a work-from-home opportunity. In order for you to grow, it’s important that you explore the different opportunities that will come your way this year.
Friends and Family
This year is all about the bigger picture, and you may find yourself more involved with your community than ever as Venus retrograde moves into your house of friendships and society. This period is about reflecting on your public life and about how you fit in your inner circle.
Jupiter being in Pisces for most of 2022, you may be in search of expanding your family and friendships. This transit is moving into your house of philosophy, so sincere reflection on what it means to be part of a family is a huge theme for you this year, but so is the possibility of expanding your family. This year could mean evaluating both what it means to have a reciprocal partnership with others and your role in your domestic and platonic relationships.
Love and Romance
Love is headed your direction, and it’s going to make waves in the most spectacular of ways. Venus retrograde is happening in your areas of partners and relations, so you can feel Capricorn’s strong and stable energy to cement a positive, uplifting love life in 2022. This period is a good time to reflect on your past relationships – what worked and what didn’t. Shifting focus on how you operate in your relationships will make way for healthy relationships.
With Jupiter in Pisces moving into your house of philosophy and expansion, you can expect there to be playful exploration in your love life. You’re in the midst of figuring out what turns you on and experimenting in areas of love. If you’re single, this could mean dating will be eye-opening as it helps you see things from different perspectives. If you’re committed, this is an auspicious time to grow deeper in your connection with your partner, learn new things, travel, or even take your relationship to the next level (like marriage or expanding a family).
Cancer, Your Year Ahead in a Nutshell
2022 is a year of growth and expansion for you, so it’s important to open up to the newness that will greet you in the year to come. Make those travel plans and prioritise your love life because you’re about to realise magnificent growth – just be sure you keep an open mind.
