October Monthly Horoscope - Cancer


Dear Cancer, on the 5th, Venus retrogrades in your 5th house of romance, creativity, children. Until the 15th of November, it’s not a great time to start a new relationship, a new creative project or to have a child, but rather to reconsider your emotions and your values regarding these matters. Maybe it's not a time when you feel like life is particularly fun. Venus retro gives you time to think about how you can truly enjoy things as if you were a child again, full of zest and excitement. What’s been missing from your life? On the 8th, the Libra New Moon in your 4th house marks a new start when it comes to family, home, inner security. Issues of power and control or of inner insecurities might come up in these areas, but the New Moon's trine with Mars supports you with a strong personal drive towards settling down, building something together with your partner, establishing security. Try to avoid guilt tripping others into fulfilling your emotional needs or giving in to control from the outside; instead, set intentions of balancing your deepest self through self-care and nurturing. The Sun’s square with Pluto on the 12th might increase tensions in these areas, but a strong New Moon intention can help you pull through. The 19th is a great day for having some creative fun or taking a dreamy short trip as Mercury trines Neptune. You might feel generally inspired at this time. You can also use the aspect’s soothing energy to tone down any arising conflicts with your children or your partner (especially about finances) as Mars sends a square to Mercury on the same day. Admitting your own vulnerabilities in conflict might be difficult, but it’s an important key. On the 24th, the Taurus Full Moon brings to fulfillment what has started this May regarding friendships, social implications, dreams for the future. Sudden changes (or even divine insights!) might come up in these areas, maybe the fulfillment of an opportunity that crowns your past efforts. However, it’s not an entirely easy astral moment as you’re called to alchemize your attachments, your desires and your needs in the social and personal sphere. It’s ideal if you can integrate your commitments to a group or to the greater good with more time for your own hobbies and passions, through first analysing what you’re really seeking in your relationships to others. A sudden opportunity related to friendship/groups/romance might come up as a reward for past efforts. On the 29th, Mercury conjunct Jupiter in your 5th house can help you with some inspiration when it comes to your hobbies, romantic life, relationship with your children. You can get a better understanding of things and a deeper communication in these areas.
