Cancer Horoscope Forecasts
By observing the movements of the planets, astrology can reveal certain things about what will happen to Cancer during the year - at least some of the most significant events. Here are the astrological forecasts for the Cancer Zodiac sign in 2017 and the last few years:
Cancer, starting at Midsummer, is the kind benefactor, bringing warmth and fruition. It's regarded as the maternal character of the Zodiac, protective with the power of a ruler, but indeed a benevolent one. Cancer is all about feelings and wants everyone to feel good.

Cancer, the benevolent, belongs to the element water, which is that of emotions. So do Scorpio and Pisces, but that doesn't necessarily mean Cancer is particularly compatible with them - they need to feel mutual attraction, which is something elusive at times. Nor for that matter is Cancer always incompatible with, say, the fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, although they are quite different. All the characteristics of each sign have to be considered.
