Your love life is a major focus again this year, with two of the heavyweight planets working for your relationship cause. Pluto and Saturn are demanding deep commitment and integrity. This is not a time to date lightly, Cancer. If you've been struggling with the whole question of long-term versus short-term viability, this is the time to think duration. It's been a hard road of having to face your own shadow in relationships. Everything that irritates you about your beloved is pointing a glaring mirror right in your own face. Although this may feel highly painful during the process, trust that it's so worth the potential for insight and wisdom about yourself. The reason you're able to endure such an intense confrontation with yourself and your own demons now is that you've got the power of love on your side. Are you ready to explore every nook and cranny of your personality and what others trigger in you? Of course you are!
Finding harmony and peace of mind in your relationships (especially with family members) will require the majority of your attention and energy in 2014. The North Node of Fate shifts into the sign of beauty and balance early in the year, urging you to focus on where you need more equilibrium in your life. Of course this will require tempering some extremes, but the graceful flow that follows is worth it. If there are any hidden selfish tendencies that have a way of destroying the beauty of your connections, this is the year to weed them out and learn the art of compromise. You have a tendency to be the emotional caretaker in your family, but this year you're being asked to work on balancing that out by taking better care of yourself. It might feel selfish at first, but you'll soon realize this actually allows you to have more to give. Establishing clear and firm boundaries with those who might take advantage of your emotional generosity is another important lesson of the year. Every relationship and love lesson will be a profound opportunity to come home to yourself this year, Cancer. That's what it's all about for you in 2014: One big homecoming!
