Cancer (June 21 - July 22) - Emotions are changing and so are thoughts regarding your future. You are usually pretty conservative but lots is happening and, like it or not, it is time to move on. Reflect, enjoy family and appreciate what's being offered to you.
Every now and then the AOL welcome page has something interesting on it, like today. They had a list of things to avoid by sign.
Cancer(June 21 - July 22) Your crab shell comes in handy, Cancer, because without it you are all mush. When your security is threatened, you go into protection mode.
What to avoid: Bungee jumping; risky investments; an empty cupboard; long business trips; unemotional partners; fast food; snow camping; biker bars.
Your survival pack: Home-cooked meals; a down comforter; old friends; photo albums; family keepsakes; good chocolate.
Biker bars?!?! Why on earth would I want to avoid those? And I hardly think "unemotonal partners" sums up all the things I should avoid, though it is a start. But where are the cheaters, liars, losers and psychos on this list? LOL... like I need a warning from AOL to tell me to avoid those. Nah, life's lessons have placed them permanently (for better or worse) on my internal watch list.
There was also another link on AOL. This one to bad habits by sign, and bingo... right on the head:
Cancer – If you've ever wondered how Cancers stay so sweet, take a look at their sugar intake. This sign loves cookies, candy, and ice cream. An occasional indulgence is fine, but too much dessert can take a toll on waist lines and energy levels. What Crabs are really seeking is oral gratification [emphasis added]. Sugar-free gum or dried fruit provides a healthy distraction from candy crunching.
Mar 4 - Things are better, just like everyone promised they would be. The weight of the world has been lifted. But nobody's saying that you'll be bored, either. A planetary team will conspire to put you in touch with the last person on earth you ever thought you'd see again -- especially now. Ready or not, here comes a giant wake-up call: You still care, and so do they. Now what are you going to do? -End By Astrology.com
Feb 18 - You'll be an emotional creature today, that's for sure -- even more so than usual, that is, which is really saying something. That's fine, though, because what you'll be expressing are all good feelings -- most likely because of one particular person who's just made your day, your week and your month. And you're wondering if they might not end up making your year, too. Dab carefully. Don't smear your makeup or make your eyes red. -End By Astrology.com
Feb 3 - Intimacy is the name of game now -- and you, of course, being the emotional, sensitive creature that you are -- won't mind a bit. Since you're so good at spoiling the ones you love, there's an excellent chance that you won't hear any arguments when you suggest to a certain someone that you two start the fun early. Especially since they've probably been waiting for you to make your move for some time now. -End By Astrology.com
Jan 18 - The heavens are conspiring to bring you even closer to your friends than you have been -- which is really saying something. In fact, you could end up in a long heart-to-heart with someone you've been dying to make peace with, and whether you're delivering or accepting the apology, you can rest assured that it will take. Then for the fun part: catching up on old times. It's time to start talking. -End
Oct 8 - The future belongs to those who take care of the present. Make sure to listen to new voices that might also offer some enlightening remarks about the kind of world that they expect to inherit. Some of this energy belongs in the arena of adult discourse, too. Don't be shy about sharing your heart's desires. Your passions move people to do some thinking of their own. Although you don't consider yourself a leader, many look to you for leadership. This amuses you, since you'd much rather be having fun. Maybe there's room for both. -End By Astrology.com
Get a little peace and quiet after running around out there in all the haste and noise. Be sure to give yourself a pat on the back for your heroic efforts, too. And if you're still brooding over the way things have turned out/are going/might turn out -- well, don't. It's time to lay that burden down. Check that luggage -- don't carry it with you. You'll enjoy this journey so much more.
Life is not as quick and insane as certain people would have you believe. You can be productive and move at a very normal pace. You are the calm in the eye of the storm. People love that about you.
