Eclipse season has returned to make its 2017 debut, so February is likely to be a super intense month for you, darling. All new and Full Moons are major events in your world, because you, sensitive Cancer, are ruled by the emotional tides of the Moon. Note that with both Mars and Venus in your career zone for most of the month, your professional passions are running high. This only intensifies as you approach the Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse on the 10th, taking place in your financial zone. Security and money are major issues for you at the moment, and if you stay centered and focused, you can avoid any unnecessary drama and keep your eyes on the prize. The only caveat is that you might want to drop a huge amount of cash on luxe impulse buys over the weekend after the eclipse – so be wary of your budget. Valentine's Day falls at midweek, and it's decidedly romantic, especially for long-term lovers. The vibe feels a bit anxious toward the end of the month thanks to the square between Mars and Pluto on the 22nd. A powerful New Moon/Solar Eclipse closes out February in the most emotional way possible. You're looking to-ward the future, but you definitely have all the feels.

2017 – it's no longer just a dream. Even though the New Year is officially here as per the calendar, note that the astrology doesn't really let the year get going until after the 8th, when Mercury finally goes direct. If anything has been on hold, especially anything linked to your important one-to-one relationships, you'll likely see some resolutions after the first week of January. But by the time you do, you'll already be dealing with a profound shift. The Full Moon in Cancer arrives on the 12th, but given your sensitivity and that this lunation hits your very own sign, you might feel it reverberating a whole week in advance. This is your annual six-month check in on your birthday wishes from 2016. Are you where you'd hoped to be by now? If you're still working on manifesting those wishes, the stars give you the opportunity to tweak and update them now – and to get that much closer to achieving them. Two weeks later there's a New Moon in your house of sex, intimacy, and transformation. If any of those areas of your life have felt stagnant or not quite right, this lunation will help you figure it out. The very next day action planet Mars moves into your career zone, helping you to blaze amazing professional trails over the next six weeks. Get to work, Cancer – fast and furious.
