With the Sun and Jupiter joining forces today, dear Cancer, you can feel a real surge of optimism and confidence about improving your life, primarily through efforts to upgrade health, work, habits, and routines.

Earlier this month, Jupiter moved into your solar sixth house, and in the coming year, you’ll enjoy benefits through these things.

You might discover new things to love in your work or daily life. Epiphanies today can get the ball rolling along these lines. You might derive particular satisfaction from helping others or through a service or work you provide.

Graciousness and generosity lead to success now. As well, attention to detail can be satisfying and enjoyable.

Also active today, however, is a Mercury-Mars square, and it’s important to avoid rushing things (and people!).

Timing may be a little off with conversations, transportation, and appointments. This planetary combination can convince us that we need to move more quickly or that we don’t have enough time to do everything we want to do.

Achieving the kind of intimacy you desire could be a struggle now. Perhaps you want a longer hug from your children before they run off, or a little more snuggle time with your partner.

However, there’s a solid chance that you can find the affection you seek from someone who loves you, if you’re willing to ask.

The Cancer Moon’s delightful trine with Mars and Neptune indicates that a visit to a museum, theatre, or your favorite restaurant will take your mind off your troubles and offer the solace you need. Giving away what you want the most often brings it back to you.

You will face difficulties and failures that you have caused yourself. If anything goes against your will, you become annoying and irritable.

Avoid communicating with strangers to avert disappointment. You’ll earn admiration if you are not hasty, so keep calm and patient.

Analysis helps you reach the required standards in your relationships. It is possible that during this period you are tempted to travel. If you have plans you need to discuss, you need to be sensitive and feel your way through.

Now is not the time to think about changes in your life. Money can be used for many things, but one of its greatest uses is to make others happy. Be daring.
