Relationships are front and center this month as the Sun occupies the
two houses of your chart most associated with partners. It's in your
7th House of Others until January 20, attracting strong willed or
demanding people. However, the point is for you to step up and state
what you want in clear and direct terms. Someone's going to control the
agenda and it might as well be you. If you're single and looking, it's
better to run off a questionable candidate with your candor than it is
to compromise your feelings.
Thinking about the long-term situation is essential now so don't be
afraid to pass up a good time or to engage in a challenging discussion
if that's what it takes to put a relationship on a solid foundation. You
don't need a weak individual who you have to protect when a stronger
partner who is a little pushy is likely to be a better match right now.
There's a New Moon Solar Eclipse in your 7th house on January 4 that
can shake up your partnership life. If you're with someone, expect to
have to break things down to the basics to rebuild trust and set up new
goals with one another. Single Cancers should recognize old patterns
that stand in the way of satisfaction and need to go before you can
raise your romantic expectations. Your sign may be tender but you need
to be tough to make this happen.
The Sun's entry into your 8th House of Intimacy on January 20 teaches
you that having room to breathe as an individual is essential to
establishing or maintaining closeness now.
