Cancer

JUN 21 - JUL 22

Home, Sweet Home

Cancer, this is an exciting month when progress becomes possible on more than one front. Six planets are in retrograde motion at the start of the month, including Mercury, which could slow things down considerably. With first Mercury, then Pluto and finally Saturn pushing ahead, things will get moving. However, with feisty Mars rewinding in a private zone as of October 30, you’ll still need to be on your toes.

The emphasis is on your home and family zone until the twenty-third. You’ll be concerned with family affairs, getting your place in order and perhaps stepping back from life and getting some distance from any ongoing problems. This is an opportunity to get a better sense of perspective on things.

The full moon in dynamic Aries on October 9 could put you in the spotlight and encourage you to share your feelings on an issue that’s deeply important to you. Act with integrity and be mindful of your reputation, because this lunar phase could affect your image. Avoid impulsive moves and unnecessary conflict.

There is a change of tack, though, as luscious Venus moves into Scorpio and your leisure zone followed by the radiant sun on the twenty-third. This is your chance to explore those hobbies you’re passionate about. Use this time to hone your skills and develop new ones. And consider promoting your talents whenever possible.

Romance is also in the cards no matter what your relationship status. If you’re looking for love, this can be a time of sizzling dates and intense feelings. Equally, if you’re in a relationship, going on some special dates or going away for a short time with your partner could rekindle the spark of passion in your bond.

The solar eclipse in Scorpio on October 25 could coincide with powerful feelings for someone or a compulsive urge to follow a course of action. Whatever you do, choose wisely.

Finally, positive Jupiter moves back into Pisces and your sector of far horizons on the twenty-seventh, which suggests a missed opportunity could again be up for grabs.
