Hi Cancer! Romance is your top priority for the for the first three weeks in November, as the Sun directs all his attention to your house of love! It’s not a time for holding back in romantic situations, you will be keen to let the object of your affections know exactly how you feel and what you want. Those who are timid of heart may be a little put off by your directness, but at least the atmosphere around love interactions will be open and honest! The Sun’s connection with retrograde Mercury during the days of the 9th to 14th could also see the return of a lover from the past, or put you back in the path of someone with whom a relationship didn’t quite manage to leave the ground last time you met. The Sun and Pluto also merge energies from the 4th to 16th, a potent concoction of emotions which will add a good deal of passionate intensity to your love life. Irresistible and obsessive attractions to dark and mysterious others are on the agenda here; do your homework before you fall too hard!
Working life is set to benefit from Venus’s lovely light between the 2nd and 26th; this is an excellent time to improve your work surroundings in some way, to create a more aesthetically pleasing environment and naturally enhance your productivity. Colleagues and customers should, in general, be happy and accommodating, therefore important meetings and team discussions will run in your favour. The new Moon here on the 26th sends changes via a different job or department move; even if you stay put your everyday routine or working environment is likely to alter in some way. Initially these adjustments could feel intimidating, but Cancerians tend to be adaptable creatures who recognise the need for growth, and in time you will see how much more effective your life has become as a result.
Neptune is almost at a standstill in November, as he dithers over a shift back into forward motion on the 28th. Your spiritual development is up for sacrifice here, as you struggle to define where you are really headed or what you actually want out of life. Don’t panic! Once we move into December and he picks up speed again you will notice your mind is clearer and your psychic energy is back in tune. In the interim watch out for vivid dreams, lapses in concentration and temporary problems around putting your thoughts into words. Neptune and Mercury hook up once again from the 10th to 18th, a marvellous link for creative expression, although this may initially come in the form of random insights, which are hard to quantify or reproduce in a coherent way.
The full Moon on the 12th illuminates friendships and social activities of all kinds, and this is a period for taking stock of the commitments you are currently making to your friends, and asking yourself whether what they offer you in return is worth your emotional investment in them. If not, it may be time to call it quits, and with the Moon opposing Mercury at this time, crucial decisions are likely to be centred around arguments or disagreements. The lunar energy temporarily reunites Saturn and Pluto here, a more positive aspect which sends support from third parties to mediate or reason with everyone involved. Positions of leadership in clubs, societies or community groups which you attend will also be up for grabs now, and others will be looking to you to fill these important positions because of your excellent organisational and practical skills. Have a lovely month!
