I saw this article in Marie Clair (online) about what your zodiac sign says about your career and of course my curiosity took hold so clicked the link to see what it says about my astrology sign (Cancer). It pretty much falls inline with numerous career theories on how to find the ideal job based on your personality. To a certain degree it’s pretty true for my personality. I’ve always enjoyed jobs that I find intellectually challenging, that enabled me to ‘wear many hats’ and that gave me autonomy on planning out work projects. I like making a positive change so have always looked for jobs with companies that fit in my personal philosophy of ‘doing good’ and making the world a better place. The few jobs that I’ve taken just for the money always left me feeling out of sorts and confined by a office culture that rubbed me the wrong way. I do know people who are fine with jobs they hate as long as they make a lot of money and I suppose it’s because they are able to turn off the part in their minds that looks at a job as part of their entire being. I feel my job has to be something I like because I often spend more time at work with co-workers than I’ve ever spent with a boyfriend or family.
As I embark on a new career path after leaving the University of Southern California I can’t help but wonder what 2016 will bring to me. Will I return to higher education or work with the tech industry? I do know the jobs that I have been looking for are ones that will utilize my love of organizing events, communication and organization skills as well as my interest in the start up community.
I will likely stay in SoCal unless I find an opportunity worth uprooting myself but who knows what life will bring. I do know that I am ready for adventure so have my bullwhip, stetson and bomber jacked ready to leap into life ala Indiana Jones!
CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22)
Cancers are the most traditional, nurturing sign of the zodiac, so they like to lead by example and can handle responsibility with ease. You are, by definition, a caretaker—so any job that lets you give advice and problem solve to make everyone happy is a great one. You don’t do well in careers where you can’t see your work making a difference or getting results—whether that’s with a person or in the bottom line—so make sure you’re getting the motivation you need from your managers with regular check-ins or reports.
Ideal careers: Cancers make natural childcare workers and nannies, but they also make amazing social workers, human resource employees, lawyers, teachers, and executives. Healthcare and wellness are also important and vital parts of this sign, so anything in those arenas—like being a dietitian or nutritionist—are right up your alley.
So amusing that Refinery 29 gets my mood as I leave the shackles of disappointment and a few triumphs that 2015 brought to my life. I am ready to begin a new AGAIN with a year full of promise and expectations.
I hope .. no I want life to bring major changes that were not realized entirely last year. I can’t complain of course since 2015 had me winning a cool vacation to Seattle, a missed opportunity to realize my geek chick series (not the right fit with vision) and a few flirtations (but no arrow strike to the heart). As disappointment mounted my fountain of optimism petered out and I thought <sigh> I will never be happy again but over the last few months I’ve turned a corner. I’ve had a couple of interviews for jobs that I would have loved to have but (sadly) no offer but am counting the blessings that I was qualified enough to be considered. I have an interview for a great contract job in the new year already set up (wish me luck) and have been sending out resumes like a ninja (silent but focused).
I’m not sure what 2016 will bring but hope it’s a new job, love and health. What do you want the new year to be for you?

WTH, Cancer? Hours before the first flute of Armand de Brignac has even thought about passing your lips, you’re already dreaming of a detoxifying juice cleanse. Blame the buzzkill on Venus, who crosses the threshold into Sagittarius and your sixth house of healthy living just one day before NYE. Cancel the club-hopping and go to the candlelight yoga and meditation instead. Okay, maybe that’s a little extreme. But there’s no reason you can’t start the celebrations with a few early-evening sun salutations. This Venus phase lasts until January 23, so it won’t be hard to get into a healthy groove as 2016 begins — or find a sexy fitness buddy to help you get your heart rate up, both in and out of the bedroom.

Speaking of romance, you’re due for a renaissance! From Sunday until March 5, passionate Mars blazes a trail through Scorpio and your glamorous, amorous fifth house. Kill the slouchy sweatshirts and crush it in curve-hugging cashmere. When you look good, you feel good — and when you feel good, you’re a much more receptive target for Cupid’s golden-tipped arrows. Mars will heat things up fast, though, so fasten your garter belt, Cancer! Your urge to merge will be stronger. Take the lead but be careful not to apply too much pressure, even if you wanted to be married with a baby — or living the bohemian life in a 250-square-foot, minimalist bungalow with your bearded-hipster lover — like, yesterday. This Mars phase could bring a hit of fame, too. Set up the webcam and record a YouTube series. Any opportunity to shamelessly self-promote should NOT be wasted.
Don’t pull your punches; focus them. Mighty Mars brings his swag into an area of your celestial chart that cultivates grit, determination, and power. That’s a perfect celestial gift for the New Year. However, mindful Mercury’s move into understanding Aquarius might prompt you to think, rethink, and overthink how you go about moving forward. If you’re not truly hurting anyone in going for yours, then there’s no need to feel guilty about doggedly reaching the next rung of your success.
Well call my crazy but after being in a major funk for the past few weeks with major ups and downs I feel as if 2015 should end on a major high note! I mean gosh how can I not be happy after all the trials and tribulations with the Macbook Pro I got at Fry’s Electronics last November was finally replaced by Apple <sigh>. I still can’t believe that the nice customer service woman listened to all my issues and read the reports of having to send it to get repaired twice, loss of photos/videos and just glitches was able to get approval for the store to switch it out. It felt as if heaven noticed that I was losing my grip and tossed a lifeline! Having the new computer has really gotten my creative juices flowing so I’ve been trying to write more often for my blog between sending out resumes for jobs that I’d like to have. I’m sad that I haven’t gotten any offers but am pleased at the response and opportunity to interview (realize I’m super rusty).
I’m just going to spend the last few weeks of December evaluating what I want to do with my life. I’ve sent out to the universe that I’m open to change! If that means packing up and moving for a new opportunity .. well I have boxes! If it means moving to a new field .. well I have the know how.
I’m ready for my new life so BRING IT!
Cancer (June 21–July 21)
This Friday’s full moon in your sign could have you feeling quite satisfied and full, too. Trust your optimism. With liberating Uranus moving forward in the sector of stars reserved for your career, you have every reason to believe that positive changes are afoot with your job and how you advance in your field of choice. So allow your shoulders to relax, and let yourself settle into a delightful puddle of comfort. It looks like you’ll have many opportunities to be on the go soon.
I was looking at an article in my beloved NYMag and of COURSE I had to check out my Astrology Gif. Boy was it a way to end a busy day at work I mean who doesn’t want some money to be rained down on them like strippers on a pole (tee hee) .. a MALE stripper that I can rain some dollar bills on! I’ve decided to not put my life on hole for ‘one day’. My one day has always been when I’m making more money, look better, am fit and well perfect. But I can’t keep doing that as life keeps moving forward and won’t be on pause for me as I get my life together. If I do come into a little money I know that I’d divide it up in a few ‘bill to pay’ piles. Just pay down my credit cards, loan, put a little in the bank for a rainy day, money aside for my new youtube project and to buy a ‘new to me’ car. So fate, kismet and the gods please hear me and drop some cash on me! It doesn’t have to be a million dollars, six figures or even 50Gs (that would be nice!) nope I know how to live within my means so whatever fate brings to me will make a big difference as I embark on my next chapter of life.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Expect more money very soon: Your funds will increase this month. When you do receive this boost in cash, be wise and save. The negative effect of this transit may cause you to spend unwisely on lavish items that you do not really need. Instead, think about important purchases or investments that will improve your quality of life somehow, rather than just impress people.
Well I can never resist a horoscope and had to read my cancer friskyscopes in case it would bring a smile to face or cheer me up. Well this one is ehh my best day was NOT today and if it is this is going to be one damned awful week! I tossed and turned last night so didn’t sleep well because of awful dreams … well nightmares really. All about my career aspirations and dating disappointment of 2014 hopefully 2015 will be full of change .. GOOD change
Cancer (June 21-July 22): You do have the right to judge and if anyone doesn’t like it, they don’t have to play with you. It’s not about them now anyway. It’s about you and what your perspective is. Committing to a certain way of life will mean certain baggage goes with its flow. Of course, rising above is always an option, but so is having a good laugh.
Well Friskyscopes got me partially right since I’m pretty kooky in general but today was NOT my best day with a car issue costing big bucks $$$ . Unless the rest of the week will be even worse. Who knows. I’m still hoping that my career change on the horizon is going to work out with my goal of a job offer in February. If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times .. no matter how bad life can be at this moment five minutes or five weeks from now something good will happen. The problem is hanging on while you in the crevice working your way up the mountain. How do you hang on when your having a hard time? Leave a comment below on your coping mechanisms.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): You won’t be able to stop your kookiness now. Just accept you’ve hit that part of winter when all your senses get numb. Then, let yourself have the freedom to go as far and dark into your psyche as necessary. This week, you may realize that not all deep dives have to wind up in a place of fear, as not all destinations now are going to be a trap.
It’s the first true week for January 5th and I’m ready for what like is bringing to me. Well life brought to me a ‘fix it’ ticket since my lightbulb is out on my headlight (phooey) but I really can’t complain since the officer didn’t give me a ticket for not being able to find my insurance info in my car! I now know what I’m doing this weekend! Organizing my dang car since I can’t find anything it’s a big huge mess! Both officers were cordial to me as I was to him so no issue so my life is stumbling along as I try to figure out my next life steps. I spent the weekend cleaning and job searching. So hopefully I’ll get some interviews.
Oh forgot to read this one. Well this is a bust for me since I’m not in a relationship! Well a dating relationship. I have friends and family but they don’t count <guffaw> Hopefully I’ll meet someone in time for Valentine Day smooch!
Cancer (June 21-July 22): You’ll have to play more of a disciplinarian role in your relationship now, which could be a nice rush of power that sends shivers down your honey’s back. The fact is you might be able to be nurturing, but that’s not a trick you pull out like a circus tiger. No, you need to feel your emotions for them to be genuine, which can be as frightening as it is powerful now.
Well I saw this post from Kiki on Friskscopes for December 29, 2014 – January 4, 2015 with what the stars have in mind for cancers. I’m not loving this one as much as the other one from Elle magazine that was much more uplifting with portends of a change in circumstance. Exactly what I’ve been working on for the last few years with my wanting to change my life. I want the American dream. Well Cherry’s American dream of a little house full of love for my husband, kids and a fuzzy dog and the cherry on top a job I love. I’ve followed the rules and am on the straight and narrow. I hope that fate, god and the powers that be will see my trudging a long and put me on the right path for happiness in 2015. What are you hoping to attain in the new year? Leave a comment below …..
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Emotionally, you’ll be feeling way too delicate to deal — perhaps it’s a deluge of nostalgia or a bond to someone that you’re not ready to cut off (though you know you have to)? No matter what the cause, it’ll make you unable to do anything too fast. Spacey will you be, so don’t expect much newness now, because laying low will be the best way to go.
Hmm well I read this week’s Cancer Friskyscopes and all I can say is WTH (what the heck you dirty minded cursers!). This literally has NOTHING to do with this boring close to hearth cancer! Now October/November has been good to me since I’ve been meeting men the last few months that I liked not that the feelings were returned enough to ask me on a date BUT they have been some major flirting! It’s been a while so my flirt skills are pretty rusty but like the Tin Man with a little oil I’m getting less squeaky! I am working on my impenetrable chastity belt (over my heard once again put away the dirty mind!) since I’ve been so focused on not getting hurt that I have a force field at level 10 with everyone (dating opps and new friends) but over the last few months I’ve been dialing it down. I’m hoping … no I INTEND on 2015 to be a new year of my being open to all possibilities! Hmm didn’t I say that in 2014? That didn’t work out to well but my fingers are crossed that after leaping ..well falling over hurdles and evaluating my life decisions that I’m a better woman. Well maybe not better but someone who’s being honest about themselves. Anyone other cancers feeling a little bereft at 2014 winds down? Leave a comment below about your plans for the new year …
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Just because someone is super generous, doesn’t mean they love you. It could be that they’re kind like that, they don’t worry about money or they are overcompensating. Whatever the deal, don’t create your own storyline and get ahead of yourself. Avoid coming to any conclusions, as keeping everything open-ended now will help you stay on your feet.
This is an amusing horoscope for me since I’ve been trying to get out of my comfort zone. I took two workout classes last week (FUN but sore), have been looking to finally date again and am figuring out my next steps. But I don’t know it seems as if my theory of ‘bad things happen in three’ has been shot to hell since it’s been a constant barrage of bad luck for me the last few years. It’s hard to not get frustrated when I’m working hard, trying to stay on the straight and narrow living my moral life when my path keeps getting landmines. I try to stay positive but with every failure that brings me to my knees I find it harder to get up. Is life telling me being a good person is for suckers and for me to be a cutthroat opportunist? I don’t know but something has to change since for every step forward I take I get pushed back 10! <sigh> Anyone else feeling discouraged?
YOUR FRISKYSCOPES FOR THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 27-NOVEMBER 2, 2014
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Your traditional side will be giving the side-eye to your latest attempts at trying out a new routine and idealogy. While you’re enjoying the adventure, of course there is that side of you that thinks you’re selling out—but what’s wrong with feeling happy? Holding yourself down to old customs wasn’t working, so relinquish the guilt and feel a new morning.
