This is an astrologically somewhat complex day. The Moon transits Capricorn
until 2:23 PM EST, when it enters Aquarius. Mercury in challenging aspect to
Uranus midday can stimulate unusual thinking and insight, but some scattered
mental energy that can lead to stress. This evening, Venus trines Uranus, and
this opens us up to new and progressive ways of relating and interacting. It
also stimulates a desire for variety in the ways we seek out pleasure and
comfort. Tonight, the Sun squares Neptune, affecting our entire day, however.
This influence takes away our sense of certainty, and we can either go with that
flow, or resist it and feel a little lost or without direction. Concentrating on artistic or spiritual pursuits is better
than focusing on things that require straightforward, factual thinking makes the
most sense now.
There is a strong focus on your creative and/or romantic life in November,
dear Cancer, although there can be some rough patches to get through. Recreation, hobbies,
pleasurable pastimes, artistic pursuits, and love/dating are areas of increased
activity, but also of some scrutiny. There can be important realizations and
increased awareness of, and frustration with, situations that have prevented you
from enjoying yourself or expressing yourself spontaneously and freely in these
areas. Your social life is changing, and emotions surrounding love and
friendship are strong, especially around the Full Moon on the 6th. Feelings
about people who have been critical or disapproving can emerge with force. If
you've been working hard on a creative project or seeking out more stability in
your love relationships, this can be a good month to make things happen,
monetize a hobby, bring more structure to your leisure time, or discuss problem
areas with a special person in your life. The need to be stricter with yourself
and others can become obvious, and you have all the tools available to tidy
things up. You could be making important commitments this month. You may have
been distracted from the larger plan or the bigger picture in recent months,
perhaps struggling with some lack of faith in your ability to move forward, but from mid-November
forward, faith in others, and in yourself, is rebuilding, making it easier for
you to reach higher in the coming weeks. There can be improvements or a feeling
of more effectiveness in educational or promotional pursuits. You're more likely
to actively create and shape your life than to simply let others make decisions
for you. All month, Mars transits your sector of partnerships, and at its best,
someone could motivate you to be more courageous, to do things you've wanted to
do, and to believe in yourself. At worst, you could feel that others are
directing your life and this can be frustrating. However, conflicts stirred with
an important player in your life can lead to important discoveries and increased
motivation to make needed changes. A close relationship can move forward. The
last week of November brings new energy for work and health and good conditions for business and money matters.
Expansive Jupiter continues to move through your sign this year, dear Cancer,
until mid-July. If you haven't taken advantage of its gifts and blessings, it's
time to do so. This is a time for a very positive new personal beginning and
awakening. It's a period of increased confidence, and of others' confidence in
you as well. One of the best things you can do for yourself this year,
besides putting yourself "out there", is to work on taking charge of your home
and family life, which may be demanding in the first half of 2014. Perhaps
because the world is demanding a lot of your attention now, home life can be a
little mixed up or hurried and hectic. One of the ways to improve your personal
life is to consciously work on relaxing your standards for achievement in your
profession or in the outside world, just enough to establish a nice balance. By
working on your inner foundation and your "base", success will ricochet back to
your public and professional lives. Confidence in your body, manner, and image
increases now, and sometimes dramatically, allowing you more freedom to do what
you want to do and to experience life on a "new and improved" level. Others
truly enjoy being around you, and see you as the wonderful person that you are.
It's not about your accomplishments, achievements, or performance at the moment
- it's about who you are. The second half of 2014 brings new and quite wonderful
energy to your finances, personal possessions, as well as your sense of comfort
and security. There is stronger focus on the simple pleasures and comforts of
life, although you might have your eye on something expensive or indulgent as
well. It's actually a good time to make larger, significant purchases, generally
speaking, and within reason. You might suddenly find yourself in the position to
acquire a long-wanted item or experience. Earnings might expand now, but it's
very important to be grateful at this time in your life. Look to expand, but
don't overreach. Excess can trip you up at a time when you have real, solid
opportunities to improve your lot in life.
Depending on what you want at this time in your life, it can be a time of more
business or more leisure - whichever helps to make you feel content and that
leads to a feeling of abundance. Even so, there can be times when you feel that
you have less time or opportunities for pursuing your hobbies, a romance, or
playful time with children. You may have less obvious "luck" on a social level
at times. Kids can be more demanding, or your tastes may be changing in such a
way that you derive less pleasure from the things that you previously enjoyed.
Love is a serious matter again this year. You can be attracting intense,
complicated, or even controlling people into your experience. May can bring
stabilizing and helpful energy to a love relationship, however. There may not be
big changes in relationships in 2014, but always a sense that changes are in the
works. Especially from September forward, there can be sudden or unusual
opportunities that arise with business, work, or money. There can be bold career
moves and surprising opportunities. Some of you could free yourselves of heavy
obligations, burdens, or debts, allowing you to move forward with more
confidence and a happy feeling of liberation. You might discover and develop a
talent, and others might suddenly recognize your value, in the job world
especially. There can be discoveries about health and wellness programs that
improve your outlook on life. Keep your eyes and mind open!
Jupiter continues to
move through your sign until mid-year, and this is helpful, freeing energy. This
may not be a time that is heavily oriented towards relationships, but the
efforts you put forth towards self-improvement can certainly benefit you in all
areas of life, including romance and relationship. You are coming into your own,
and it's a year of self-discovery in many ways.
You are focused on new beginnings at this time in your life, and rightfully so. You are not as interested
in what happened in the past, preferring to move forward without restrictions,
and that's a lot to say about a Cancer, known to be quite attached to the past.
Recently, you've been reinventing yourself, and in the process, there may have
been some people already in your life who have felt a little insecure about the
changes you've been making. Do what you have to do to propel yourself forward,
but be sensitive to those you hold dear. For the most part, though, people are
really enjoying you. You are likely to get a lot of positive feedback, and
you're sure to feel the love coming your way even if it's not explicitly stated.
Even so, there can be some rocky patches. In January, Venus is retrograde in
your partnership zone all month. You could feel stuck in the past regarding
relationships at this time, even with Jupiter encouraging you to look ahead.
Others may be a little cool with you. For some, an ex can return. Mars
retrograde from March to mid-May can serve to confuse desires.
In late May, Jupiter in your sign harmonizes with Saturn in your romance sector.
Because Saturn is also the ruler of your partnership sector, this can be an
especially strong time for strengthening and enjoying a relationship...cont'd
