As a Cancer, you’re typically the person that has everything under control – or you try to make sure others thing you have it under control. But let’s be honest, it’s been difficult over the past few years. You’ve even had troubles keeping things together, and you’ve let the emotions flow in front of people.
In 2014, it’s going to be a year where you are not only feeling more stable, but you’re also able to keep your emotions in check. You’re going to gain a greater understanding of who you are, what you need, and how you can move forward without losing track of where you've been.
Even though the past few years have been a little rough for you, you can tell that you’re into the better times. Your career has stabilized, even as you’ve been given more responsibility than ever. You know you’re where you want to be, for now anyway. While you might want to switch things up in the coming years, where you are is pretty fantastic.
When you’re in a state of loving what you do and how you do it, it can be easy to become complacent. In order to get away from this, it’s advisable for you to keep track of the things you love and why you love them. Though this might not be something you can do every day, it is something that you should do on a routine basis. This might mean you track the accomplishments you have, and the goals you have going forward. Keep looking at how great things are – and then think about how you might be able to make them even better.
And if things begin to feel as though the fantastic parts are not as fantastic as they once were, it’s okay. It’s just a healthy sign of your ability to grow. Ask for more responsibility, make suggestions, and show off your expertise. That’s a great way to make things more exciting for you and more successful for the company too.
It’s no surprise to you that you need to work on your relationship this year. You’ve been sitting in a place of limbo for a while. This is not out of not knowing what to do – far from it. You know what you need to do, but you’re just not doing it. Relationships are hard, and sometimes you need to tell someone something they don’t want to hear. But you’re a better friend and lover for it. Try speaking up for yourself this year.
What do you really want? That’s the question you’ve been avoiding. You might have a sense of the answer, but you’ve thought about how it might look to the other person, and you’ve hesitated to share it. You might not be ready for something to change, or you don’t think you could handle the change. Stop and breathe into the possibility that what you need to say is exactly what they need to hear.
Your health has certainly been on your mind, lately. You’ve been making smaller changes, but the bigger picture still looks the same. If you want to make bigger changes, you need to be ready for life as you know it to change too. Yes, some people might not like it and others might be concerned that the changes will impact the way you relate to each other.
This is certainly a concern to have, but the more you can stop thinking about what everyone else wants – or you think they need – the more you can focus on yourself. You need to spend more time thinking about what your body and your health needs. You’ve been putting everyone else’s needs before your own, and it’s time to stop this practice and get back to yourself.
This is a year of finally coming into balance, Cancer. Even though you might not feel all that out of sorts, you realize that something needs to change. Some of the ways in which you’ve felt stuck can become unstuck, so long as you spend time on yourself, what you want, and what you need.
