February 2012 Monthly Horoscope for Cancer
With most of the planets still above the horizon and your 10th house, your career is continuing into a very favorable time, just as it was last month. Your planet is in retrograde, however, so it is only natural that things are beginning to slow down somewhat at this time. With that in mind, this may not be the best time to make any sudden or impetuous changes with regard to your work situation. Give time for further study before making any decisions.
Likewise, you should avoid taking the short and easy road to success at this time. Though it may seem as if this will get you to your goals more quickly, in truth you will find that this road is a cheat and will cause you nothing but delays. You'll be better off sticking with a slow, steady forward motion, rather than a sprint. This is especially true when it comes to dealing with those higher up the corporate ladder. Make sure your comments to bosses do not go misunderstood, even for a brief period of time. Miscommunications could wind up being your downfall if you're not especially careful now.
Your love life also is entering a retrograde cycle, beginning just after the first week of the month. This is a calm, placid time, a time when you can clearly see the advantages and disadvantages of whatever relationship you're currently in. Take your time and think things through carefully; the answers to your questions will come to you if you give them the time. Once they do, you may find yourself considering marriage or some other forward move regarding your relationship. This is entirely normal and to be expected, but do be sure to move slowly and don't allow yourself to give into the temptation of running into a commitment without reflection. Love should be simple; don't complicate it unnecessarily.
Your financial situation will be a mixed bag in February. Though your own personal financial life is somewhat static, you may find that your spouse or significant other is experiencing unprecedented fiscal gains now. This can only be a good thing for you, based in no small part on this person's generosity and tendency to include you in joyful events. Do what you can to be supportive of your spouse's monetary efforts; eventually, all this good will may come back to you a hundred-fold.
Later in the month, in fact, you will likely see all sorts of good news regarding your financial situation. Your good luck alone could bring you surprising dividends, even if you don't particularly work toward that end in a conscious manner. Believe it or not, your spiritual life could well impact your earning. Prayer and meditation give you the answers you seek with regard to investment opportunities.
Foreign travel could be on your agenda after the second week of the month. Students may find they are learning things about a foreign country first-hand, for a change. A great resurgence in interest in the areas of philosophy, theology and non-traditional religions opens up many new avenues for those involved in higher education.
Your health is improving this month, but that doesn't mean you can slack off. Keep up with any physical fitness regimens you've been involved with lately, especially after the 19th.
