Pull that luggage set out of storage, Cancer! On Monday the 18th, the sun blazes into Pisces, stopping through your travel sector for a monthlong visit. Suddenly, the zodiacs homebody morphs into a jetsetter and youre jonesing to explore some terra nova. Make sure your passport is up to date! You could be flying the intercontinental skies before March 20. If youre grounded at home base, this solar powered phase calls for multicultural mingling. Get out and socialize with a different crowd. Explore an intriguing scene–even one that leaves you feeling like a fish out of water at first. We know that you hate being an outsider, O Shy One, so bring a bubbly wing(wo)man along to help boost your Cancerian confidence. Before you know it, youll be adopted into this new tribe as an honorary and beloved member. Are you a writer or mediamaker? Pisces rules your ninth house of publishing and you could see your work in print over the next four weeks. Or maybe youll finally bust through those creative blocks and get to work on that book proposal, memoir, blog post, song lyrics, or that delicious chicklit plot outline thats been brewing in the art imitates life recesses of your subconscious. (Incidentally, have you thought about working on that manuscript on a white sand beach, Cancer?) Enterprising Crabs will also get a solar-charged boost from the Pisces sun, which is illuminating your house of independent ventures. This is a fine time to develop a business idea, whether youre putting a new product on the market or working with a consultant to ensure the marketability of your offerings. Theres just one caveat to all these exciting developments: on Saturday the 23rd, messenger Mercury turns retrograde in Pisces for three weeks, increasing the odds of communication breakdowns and scheduling snafus. If youre taking off for the tropics, triple check your bag before you head to the airport to make sure you have your ID, passport, credit card, hotel information, phone charger, yadda yadda. It bears repeating that you should do any booking through reputable companies too, even if that means spending a few extra dollars for your car rental or overnight stays. If a new business idea is presented to you, dont jump in without doing thorough research (as if you ever would!). There could be hidden expectations in the fine print of those contracts; for example, a network marketing venture that expects you to personally purchase a large quantity of products each month. Know what youre getting yourself into and it will be smooth sailing. Retrogrades are known for stirring up the past and you may hear from a long-lost, long-distance contact between Saturday and March 17. This could be someone you met during your travels, or a friend who moved away. If you suddenly start wondering what happened to sweet Giovanni from the Tuscan culinary tour you took last summer, this would be a fine time for a Facebook search to see if you might rekindle the connection. With Mercury backstroking through your ninth house, you cannot tell a lie…but that doesnt mean you cant be tactful. When your sister asks your opinion on a downright fugly dress shes trying on, you can simply say, I think theres a better fit for you rather than screeching, Ewwww! in front of the entire fitting room. Sounds simple enough, Cancer, but for the next few weeks, your normally compassionate filters will be on hiatus. Do yourself a favor and think before you speak! Theres one more retrograde to reckon with this week. From Monday the 18th until July 7, slow-moving Saturn will reverse gears in your fifth house of romance and self-expression. Saturn is the planet of structure so if your love life hasnt been serving up enough certainty, you could find yourself in the meltdown zone. Breathe, Cancer, breathe. Relationships are a negotiation process. Before you assume youll never have what you want, try discussing your needs with the object of your affections. If youve been struck by baby fever, Saturns backwards turn could slow your efforts. Some Crabs may explore IVF or other fertility treatments over the next five months. Then again, you could also take a breather from the pressure of trying to conceive. You might just become more fertile when you stop stressing! If you have kids, they will need more attention from you during Saturns backspin. That doesnt mean you should become the martyr mommy though. Finding more cooperative, mutually rewarding ways to enjoy your children is the name of Saturns game. And if that means hiring a nanny or babysitter a few hours a week or occasionally buying store-made baby food instead of pureeing organic fruit the Cuisinart, so be it. Are you ready for a rebranding, Crab? Saturns tour of your fifth house (which lasts until September 17, 2015) is a time where you can truly make a name for yourself, even drawing fame as a result of your talents! Presenting a more serious face to the world is part of your Saturnian evolution, but that doesnt mean you have to de-flavorize yourself. You can still be chic and sophisticated while maintaining your edge. During the retrograde, work with a stylist, branding expert, even a media coach to develop your image to the relatable, respectable level you desire. Your efforts will pay off!
