The inner planets and their transits, dear Cancer, deeply influence the matters of the heart within your overall play of energies from the outer planets. The lovescope predictions are not just about love, romance, attraction and sexuality, but also enlighten us of things that you enjoy and events that bring happiness to your heart. However, to truly relish the offers, all Cancerians must understand the overall scheme of fate that the primary outer planets have for you in 2018.
Jupiter has been in Scorpio from October 2017, your 5th House, your sector of pleasure and creativity - and will remain till November 2018, when it enters Sagittarius. This 13-month transit of the bountiful Jupiter indicates love, romance, hobbies, children, good health, prestige, status, recognition, buying, selling, shopping, and success in everything. It also indicates new outlets of amusement, eroticism, speculation and indulgence in games of chance, and exceptional creative pursuits. But Saturn's move into Capricorn which keeps reminding you of your responsibilities, means 'bittersweet' times.
On the other hand, Saturn, the planet of responsibility and duty, has been in Capricorn from December 2017, your 7th House, your sector of relationships and love - and will remain till March 2020. This Saturn's transit for more than two years means responsibilities in irreversible, monumental proportions in your relationships that will be thrust upon you to test your ability to handle pressure. It indicates changes in personal and professional relationships - that may be up and down and roundabout, like a merry-go-round. Along with Jupiter in 5th House, you are in an astrologically fine position, and your challenge will be to enjoy your life as Saturn blows hot and cold for you - either way, you will not have a dull moment in your life. Success will only be theirs, who will accept changes naturally and take it in the right spirit if changes are forced upon them, and understanding the other persons' point of view will most certainly help. You might not tumble for pushing too hard, but you may have to face the music as the planets dance full of jest, humour, and mischief. Other features are: journey, ceremony, legal matters, public image and relationships, competition, collaborations, cooperation, and change of locale/surroundings.

Within your (above-explained) overall play of energies for 2018, the noteworthy inner planet influences on all Cancerians in 2018 are highlighted below, with predictions for love, attraction, and matters of the heart for Cancer:
Venus will be in Cancer from 19 May to 13 June. Venus is the planet of love, luxury, comforts, and everything that is beautiful. It brings romance and aroused senses to you when it resides in your own sign. For Cancer, this period indicates good times related to house, home, friends, and wish-fulfilment.
Mercury will be in Cancer from 12 June to 29 June. Mercury is the planet of communication, travel, creativity, and pushes you forward when it is in your own sign. For Cancer, this period elevates you to success, and moves you mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Mars does not transit your sign in 2018. Mars is the planet of vitality, adventure, and courage. It brings more powerful energy to you when it resides in your own sign. For Cancer, this period gives you added power, and provides good time to achieve goals and targets. But, it is not unfortunate if Mars does not transit your sign, as Mars forms harmonious aspects many times this year.
The period from 12 June to 13 June is a double bonanza, and all Cancerians are advised to go for it. You will not be disappointed in almost anything that you seek - love, romance, career moves, money, you name it - but luck, as they say, favours the brave.
Other power periods are: 1-20 January, 13 August to 10 September, and 16 November to 31 December - when the planets help tremendously for your romance, creative pursuits, prestige, promotion, profit. Also, July shows the way to happiness and health.
Also, Mars and Venus make rare retrogrades this year - unlike other planets, they move backward only once in two years. Mars is retrograde from 26 June to 27 August, and Venus is retrograde from 5 October to 16 November. Although they do not occur in Cancer, these periods are good times for reflection and review, rather than overt action. Old flames, lovers or partners from the past, and past actions come to the fore, sometimes in imagination and at times, physically. These are delicate periods for the mind, and it is wise to stay away from all major decisions and commitments - from marriage to property, from buying to selling.
For Cancer, the above periods summarize the significant predictions for 2018. However, these are mere indicators based on solar-scopic readings, and not Natal Chart based real Horoscopic readings. Thus, the above observations are neither perfect nor accurate. The actual interplay of planetary energies is likely to be enhanced or diluted, based on individual Natal Charts. Nevertheless, we encourage you to direct your actions accordingly to take advantage of the energies at play, and contain yourself from avoidable temptations and altercations.
- When Jupiter transits Scorpio (October 2017 - November 2018), we tend to value intimacy more than usual. This can be a time for embracing our sexuality, and exploring some adventurousness on intimate levels. We are not impressed or patient with flakiness, and care less about social or financial standing than we do for character and integrity. Thus, showcasing committed, passionate, magnetic, powerful, and sensual qualities bring greater success in love and relationship. Also, there can be more coupling and breakups during this period, and improvements to relationships now can involve some breaking down of existing structures and intensive work on self-improvement.
- When Saturn transits Capricorn (December 2017 - March 2020), love and relationship may be either a little more business-like, or more traditional and defined. We tend to consider and value long-term viability - more than usual. Thus, being reliable, on time, and showing respect are appreciated among partners, and bring greater success in love and relationship. Also, we prefer a more conservative, classy, utilitarian or simply elegant fashion.
