Cancer Horoscopes October 2021

Cancer horoscopes, stones

Home & Family

It’s Libra season until the 23rd and this is where there’s currently a lot of planetary activity. Libra is the star sign at the base of your horoscope. It’s linked to your home and family, also your past and where you come from. Here’s the planetary line-up:

  • Mercury (communication) – all month, retrograde until the 18th
  • Mars (action/drive) – until the 30th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – until the 23rd

It’s a complex planetary picture as Mercury is on go slow until the 18th. This can flag up misunderstandings or untruths linked to family life. Home projects or a property move could be delayed. Yet, there are significant turning point.

Firstly, there’s a New Moon on the 6th, a symbol of new beginnings. This New Moon is punchy as Mars is caught up in the mix and active on the 8th & 9th. Be wary of arguments or getting into a fight. At the same time, be assertive and fight to get your needs met.

The Full Moon on the 20th could be a significant turning point for you. The Moon is in Aries and your career and future sector, while the Sun is in Libra. This cuts across the foundations of your horoscope and is often a time of culmination or completion.

News coming to light or someone speaking up on the 18th when Mercury turns direct could be the key that turns the lock and gets things moving.

Plus, on the same day, the planet of opportunity Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius and your joint finance sector. This could coincide with a gift or good news about a loan, mortgage or inheritance.

  • Lucky dates for home & finances: 4th, 15th, 18th & 28th

Romance & Children

The inner planets are moving through Scorpio at different times of the month. Scorpio rules deep emotions whether you’re exploring your psyche or stepping into a role as counsellor, therapist or analyst. Here’s the pattern:

  • Venus (love/relating) – until the 7th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – from the 23rd
  • Mars (action/libido) – from the 30th

These planetary shifts could bring a soulmate connection your way, especially when Venus is in Scorpio up until the 7th. New romance could flourish quickly, whether in your own life or for your child, an ex or past lover.

Either way, there’s going to be a lot of strong emotion around during Scorpio season and you’re going to be feeling it. There will be some wins, perhaps news of a birth or pregnancy or a creative project that goes well.

Scorpio rules entertainment and luck. Therefore, trust your natural intuition if you’re choosing lottery numbers or entering a competition.

Plus, there’s a suggestion this month that you’re being called forth to make up your mind about love. Consider who in your life needs more of you or needs you to be there for them.

Intense Relationships

Relationships have been under challenging stars in your horoscope for some time now. That doesn’t mean to say you can’t be in a committed loving relationship but there is an all-or-nothing feel about love.

This is because of the slower-moving planet Pluto in Capricorn and your relationship sector. Pluto turns direct on the 6th so there’s intensity in your one-to-one’s and it’s not a month to sweep things under the carpet.

Pluto clashes with planets in Libra and your home and family sector so there may be an issue with the in-laws or a step family, for example.

Also, your partner planet Saturn turns direct in Aquarius and your joint finance sector on the 11th. Someone in your life may have a lot of power now or be making a move on your money & security. Deal with any challenges head on.

  • Tricky relationship dates – 1st, 17th & 22nd.

Mercury Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts

Remember the Mercury retrograde mantra – put off the big decisions & major investments until the communication planet is back up to speed on October 18th. Here are some more tips:

  • be flexible, have plans B, C & D up your sleeve
  • take a step back, do less not more
  • double-check everything, read the small print
  • chase up old contacts, revisit the past
  • use all the re-words – revise, rework, review, reconsider
  • rest & retreat when you can
  • do your research ready to act when Mercury turns direct

Creative & Romantic Goals

Your ruling planet Mercury is in Libra all month. This is one of the play sectors of your horoscope linked to children & creativity, romance & entertainment. Libra’s a social air sign like your star sign Gemini.

You tend to be at your best when you have a healthy work/life balance and the social side of life could kick in big-time this month. Here’s the line up of planetary bodies in Libra:

  • Mercury (communication) – all month, retrograde until the 18th
  • Mars (action) – until the 30th
  • Sun (essence/ego) – until the 23rd

Mercury is retrograde this month until the 18th and this is important for you. If you’re on the verge of making a big decision about a love affair, children & pregnancy or a social event, it may be wise to wait and see what else comes to light.

The New Moon could be important in this respect and takes place on the 6th. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings. With Mars in pole position, events could turn quickly on or around this date. The 8th/9th are packed full of drive, power and energy.

The Full Moon is another significant date on the 20th and ideal for a big celebration. If you’re waiting for someone else to make up their mind, the Full Moon is a likely date when plans come to completion or ideas come to fruition. When your planet Mercury turns direct on the 18th, you hear information or news that can help you get ahead.

This Mercury retrograde phase feels creative for you. If you can, take a step back and dive deep into a hobby and explore your skills or talents.

Mercury retrograde isn’t traditionally thought of as the best time to travel, yet it’s a wonderful time to go on retreat. As long as you give yourself plenty of time to get to your mode of travel and double-check visas, paperwork, etc. you should be fine.

Plus, big planet Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius and your travel and study sector on the same day as Mercury turns direct, October 18th. This is a definite green light for getting away.

  • Lucky dates: 4th, 15th, 18th & 28th

Work Goals

Work is a key feature of the month ahead because of what’s happening in the star sign Scorpio. Here’s the line up of planetary action:

  • Venus (love & relating) – until the 7th
  • The Sun (essence, ego) – from the 23rd
  • Mars (action/drive) – from the 30th

When it comes to your work, your lifestyle and your health, crack on with new plans and put new habits in place during Scorpio season, i.e. after the 23rd. Work and money are linked in your horoscope. You could recognise that a period of hard work will help you out of a tight financial spot. If you know that getting your head down for a couple of months ticks a lot of boxes, go for it.

At its best, Scorpio season helps you to focus, concentrate and get on with the job at hand. You might be busy but raking it in financially – one good reason to prioritise work and boost your reputation or status in the process.

If you’re a Gemini with a plan, late October’s a great time to set your plan in action, especially if the results prove successful for your health, fitness, work or routine.

Money Decisions

You do still need to keep a close eye on money matters this month. This is because the slowest-moving planet Pluto is stationary in Capricorn and your joint finance sector.

This could feel intense if you’re dealing with a money issue. Pluto turns direct on the 6th and rarely moves at all throughout October. Ideally, try to remove yourself from any situation where other people have control of your money.

Also, be realistic when it comes to your outgoings or expenses. If you recognise a drain on your finances, perhaps because of a loan or wanting to help out someone close, be vigilant.

Decide whether saying no is actually the best medicine. This isn’t a good month to ignore a debt situation or keep paying out a regular amount of money that’s not bringing you a good investment.

  • Tricky money dates: 1st, 17th & 22nd

Mercury Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts

Remember the Mercury retrograde mantra – put off the big decisions & major investments until the communication planet is back up to speed on October 18th. Here are some more tips:

  • be flexible, have plans B, C & D up your sleeve
  • take a step back, do less not more
  • double-check everything, read the small print
  • chase up old contacts, revisit the past
  • use all the re-words – revise, rework, review, reconsider

Work & Routine

Seek balance in your life throughout October, especially around your work & routine, your lifestyle & your health. This is where there’s peak energy but not always easy. Here’s the line-up of planetary bodies in this sector of your horoscope:

  • Mercury (communication) – all month, retrograde until the 18th
  • the Sun (essence/ego) – until the 23rd
  • Mars (action/drive) – until the 30th

This is full-on planetary energy especially with Mars in pole position. Mars is a great planet for action and fitness but can be linked to stress and argumentative behaviour. Plus, with talk planet Mercury retrograde until the 18th, you may find yourself in a situation that’s out of balance or frustrating. Prioritise your well-being, don’t overload your schedule and monitor your stress levels carefully.

There’s a New Moon in Libra, the star sign of balance on the 6th. This could be a turning point for you with regard to these key areas of life – work & health. New Moons symbolise new beginnings. You might be able to apply for a new job, role or position. You may be able to switch things around so life’s a little easier. Mars is strong on the 8th/9th and you may have to fight to get what you want.

The Full Moon on the 20th is a time of culmination. This could be when a stressful period completes. Or, perhaps new opportunities open up for you. If you’re waiting on test results or a health diagnosis, the turning point is likely to be the 18th when Mercury turns direct.

If you’re looking for a new job, a promotion or a new position, the 18th is once again a promising date. This is when big planet Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius and your career and vocation sector. It promises freedom and new opportunities.

  • Lucky work dates: 4th, 15th, 18th & 28th
  • Tricky work dates: 1st, 17th & 22nd

For most of the month, focus on your life in the here and now and take one day at time. Do the best you can with what you have. Libra is about being of service to others. Volunteering or caring for other people could offer you a great sense of fulfilment in the month ahead.

Power & Relationships

As October begins, your planet Venus remains in sexy Scorpio until the 7th. It’s in mutual reception with Mars in Libra, your partner planet until then. This is promising for alliances, partnership and getting the right people on your side. You could be trading or swapping skills.

Scorpio season kicks in big-time on the 23rd when the Sun enters Scorpio. This is your opposite star sign and relationships are likely to become more important from this date onwards. Your partner planet Mars enters Scorpio on the 30th and November could be pulsating with passion.

Power games are Scorpio’s bag so you may have to step up your game. If you find yourself in a situation where other people hold all the power, respond by being equally strong rather than let them get away with things.

Future Path

Some of you may have some big choices to make this month around travel or study. This is because the slower-moving planet Pluto turns direct in Capricorn and this sector of your horoscope on the 6th. Pluto makes a positive planetary aspect to your ruler Venus on the 2nd, a date when you may get the right person to help you.

Otherwise, you could be weighing up what you can and can’t do this month or have to reconsider your plans. The tricky work dates above are also applicable here as Pluto’s involved. Try not to slip into impossibility if things aren’t working out.

Another key date for your future path is the 11th when Saturn turns direct in Aquarius and your career and vocation sector. This could require extra commitment from you and a new stage in responsibility. Or, perhaps one path comes to an end. It can go either way.

If something does close or shut down or break down, know that lucky Jupiter will step in on the 18th and could bring a brand spanking new opportunity your way. Or, at the very least, some freedom from a tense situation.

Mercury Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts

Remember the Mercury retrograde mantra – put off the big decisions & major investments until the communication planet is back up to speed on October 18th. Here are some more tips:

  • be flexible, have plans B, C & D up your sleeve
  • take a step back, do less not more
  • double-check everything, read the small print
  • chase up old contacts, revisit the past

Complex Relationships

Your ruling planet Mars remains in your opposite star sign Libra until the end of the month. Relationships are where it’s at. Or, perhaps the opposite and where it’s not at. One way or another, relationships are complex this month.

Firstly, talk planet Mercury is in Libra but retrograde until the 18th. Someone may go quiet on you during this period, plans may change and at times, you could feel powerless.

The New Moon on the 6th takes place in Libra, an indication that you’re not the one in control or in charge this month. Hand over the reins to other people, get other people to take the lead for a change.

Your planet Mars is super triggered on the 8th & 9th whether you’re caught up in an argument or a competitive situation. Alternatively, your energy’s on overdrive and you’ve got hold of the person who can make a huge difference in your life.

If you’re in a long-term relationship or marriage, lean on your other half. Compromise is needed but ask for help and advice when necessary too. It’s not a month when you can go it alone. You need the right people on your side – keep your friends close, your enemies closer still.

Relationships peak around the Full Moon on the 20th which falls in your star sign, Aries. Feelings and emotions are likely to be intense when the Full Moon peaks. A relationship situation could be turned on its head, whether you’re the one cutting ties or someone else acts decisively.

If you’re losing sight of who you are in a close relationship, it’s during the Full Moon in your star sign, Aries, when you can regain control or claw back your independence. This may be due to information you receive once Mercury turns direct on the 18th.

  • Lucky love & partnership dates: 4th, 15th & 28th
  • Tricky love & partnership dates: 1st, 17th & 22nd

Savvy Money Moves

Scorpio season kicks in early this month as the planet of relating Venus dives deep into the star sign which rules the psyche and all things hidden. Here’s what’s happening in Scorpio:

  • Venus (love & relating) until the 7th
  • The Sun (essence, ego) from the 23rd
  • Mars (action, drive) from the 30th

Scorpio season is your cue to turn your attention to your finances. Scorpio rules all money transactions, such as inheritance, savings & debt, taxes, alimony, investments, payments, etc.

It’s a good time to consider your financial future. If you have surplus money, thanks to an inheritance, gift or bonus, invest it wisely. You may start to see the potential of your money and how you can make a difference out in the world.

Whatever your current plans with regard to money, finances and security, wait until the Sun enters Scorpio on the 23rd before taking action. This is because communication planet Mercury turns direct on the 18th.

Traditionally, Mercury retrograde is not the time to make major investments or sign or seal an important contract. Instead, wait until later in the month before making a savvy money move.

Long-Term Goals

There could be times when work feels overly intense this month. Power planet Pluto turns direct on the 6th in Capricorn and your career and future sector.

Plus, Capricorn’s planet Saturn turns direct on the 11th in Aquarius, the sign linked to networking and the collective. This could flag issues up with a boss or the authorities, so keep your cards close to your chest and don’t reveal everything.

Big planet Jupiter could represent a key turning point as it switches direction on the 18th, the same day as Mercury turns direct.

This combination is great for hearing news about an educational course or travel. It might be helpful for a legal matter. This is the green light date in October – if you can put off making any big decisions until then, wait and see what news, information or new opportunities come to light.

Mercury Retrograde Do’s & Don’ts

Remember the Mercury retrograde mantra – put off the big decisions & major investments until the communication planet is back up to speed on October 18th. Here are some more tips:

  • be flexible, have plans B, C & D up your sleeve
  • take a step back, do less not more
  • double-check everything, read the small print
  • chase up old contacts, revisit the past
  • use all the re-words – revise, rework, review, reconsider
  • rest & retreat when you can
  • do your research ready to act when Mercury turns direct

Final Ten Days of Virgo Lunar Month

 

 

 

We are in the final ten days of the Virgo lunar cycle.   Of course, Mercury is retrograde.  Take your time, don’t rush, get clarity, you don’t always have to hit ‘send’.    Use the last quarter moon to push on any seeds you planted in new moon.   Make sure your calendar and schedule match your values.  Never forget that the solution to any problem or goal starts with your time and focus—bit by bit.

 

 

Last Quarter Moon Phase

 

September 28, 2021

 

6:57am  PDT

 

   

 

 

Last Quarter moon:  Now we do the final adjustments to the seeds we planted on new. The final call, the final letters to send, we follow all the trails that came up that still make sense.  And we let the other parts lay fallow. It is a time of action but wise action.  It is a time for living “The serenity prayer” 

 

 

God, grant me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change Courage to change the
things I can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference.

 

 

 

 

Focus on:

 

How are your actions connected to your family?  How are your actions connected to your personal history?  How are your actions connected to your childhood?   How are your actions connected to your mother?  

 

 

 

Special focus 

 

9/29: Venus trine Neptune.   Feeling in sync with the universe.  A universal salve applied to wounds on the psyche.  

 

9/29: Sun trine Saturn.  Support for relationships may come from group effort.   Saturn in Aquarius brings new technology that is supportive. 

 

9/30: Venus square Jupiter.   Personal desires versus group goals are challenging.  

 

10/1: Mars opposition Chiron.   Finding independence through letting others do more work and get exhausted.  

 

10/1: Mercury square Pluto.  Round 2 of this aspect.  Between 9/22 and 10/1 Mercury gets into it with Pluto.  Dark thinking, communication that is strained, thoughts that feel extreme.  What thoughts need to be jettisoned?  How is thinking holding you back?  10/31 is the final round of this aspect. 

 

 

 

 

Balsamic Moon Phase

 

 

October 1, 2021

 

4:35   PDT      

 

 

Balsamic:   We let go.  By releasing we can prepare for the new.  

 

 

 

Focus on How are you releasing your drama?  How are your releasing your creativity?  How are you releasing your ego?   How are you releasing your pride?    

 

 

Special focus: 

 

10/3: Mercury trine Jupiter – Mercury trine Jupiter.  Thinking broadens.  Finding a way to get mental balance perhaps learning from a teacher or spiritual advisor. Group thinking supports expanding opinions that help relationships.  This is the 2nd of 3 hits. 

 

 

 

Libra New Moon October 6, 4:05am PDT  13 Libra 25
