Cancer - November 2017
Family affairs could feel a little more argumentative than usual this month, as Mars stirs up a storm in your domestic area. Everyone will suddenly seem to have an opinion about everything, and it won’t be easy to keep the peace. If you are in the process of moving house right now, you may experience a similarly over assertive approach from your buyer or seller; don’t be pushed into a corner by aggressive others. Mars and Uranus form an explosive opposition after the 22nd and into early December, a connection which signifies a public confrontation of some kind, probably triggered by your desire to protect your family or home. Pluto will also square Mars between the 12th and 28th, and rows with partners or ex-partners over property could become rather violent now. On a more positive note, this transit will at least supply you with some extra energy for household chores, and it’s a wonderful time to attend to repairs or renovations on a property.
Mercury and Saturn will form a conscientious conjunction in your work zone from the 21st of November to the 11th of December, and this period is very favourable for discussions and meetings about important career projects. Others will take you seriously now and will be impressed by your in depth knowledge. This can be a rather pessimistic aspect, however, so try to remain positive around colleagues and in work situations which are stressful or unexpected. A tendency to criticise and chastise is also likely, as your thoughts become rather brooding and intense. Mercury will also trine unpredictable Uranus during this period, hence it will be a time of unexpected opportunities and support. These two planets will reconnect in January after Mercury turns retrograde in early December, so if things don’t go your way now, another chance to shine will arise in the New Year.
This month’s Moon cycle focuses on how you are balancing your personal freedom with your commitment to others. Cancerians are warm and caring people, but you can at times become drained by others’ emotions and demands. The full Moon on the 4th is such a time, as friends expect unreasonable commitments from you regarding their plans. Opposition from Jupiter suggests that this could be a time of social gatherings, and a tendency to eat, drink or party excessively is likely. The new Moon on the 18th brings it back to you, and is all about following your heart and engaging in a hobby or activity simply for the fun of it. Let your hair down and reconnect with your spontaneous, carefree inner child! Have a fantastic month!
