This is another hugely transformational month for you, Cancer, with partnership transformation still on your mind. This is due to prominent Pluto in your relationship sector, a factor that has been a powerful influence for many months now, even for the last couple of years. Relationship and creative self-expression is the name of your game this month and through to the end of the year; although this can take many forms including the unexpected resurgence of something that had grown stale. Is your relationship dynamic off to a fresh start or encountering limits to growth and experimentation? Your creativity is also calling you in terms of projects. Your energy for personal projects may be at an all-time high this month, with dramatic results that vibrate out into the an innovative new world. Especially after November 8th there could be the additional contribution of sudden bursts of intuitional understanding that sees the future rather than the past. Or discovers wild ideas to try out. Contra-wise, you could also be feeling barriers to intimacy or potentially a block to further depth exploration of your own psyche. In any case you must find the right balance between these antithetical internal propositions.

The recent solar eclipse in Scorpio that took place on October 25th set the stage for what unfolds in this current month, and the indications are that you will be focusing on your creativity, your relationship with any children you may have, or just spending more time focusing on what you love. It could feel easier to know what you want this month especially if you have the time to explore your desires more wholeheartedly. You might oscillate between your need for social connection and validation versus a necessity for introspection and calm. Your home life and private feelings are also emphasized at this time, along with expectations for a future pathway forward that could represent something of a departure from previous goals that you thought were fully estsblished.
Additionally, Mars has just turned retrograde in Gemini at the end of October in the part of your chart that relates to unconscious process and inner work, so that you may find that strange psychological or psychic material emerges in the months ahead, as Mars moves retrograde. You may need more downtime to turn your attention inward and this transit could be your opportunity to explore the roots of your frustrations or feelings of inadequacy so that they can be made conscious. Acknowledging your intuition and allowing yourself to ponder the meaning of life through contemplation should help you make peace with things that feel overwhelming at this time.
The connection between your creativity, your passions, and your unconscious might feel more obvious than usual at the beginning of November and it may be a good time to explore various modes of self-expression like automatic writing or painting. Although you may have a hard time finding the time or the utility in doing so, you could be surprised by how therapeutic it could feel.
The Full Moon lunar eclipse in Taurus takes place on November 8th, and forms a conjunction with rebel planet Uranus while also receiving a square from Saturn in Aquarius. This may highlight an ongoing process that has to do with getting off the beaten path or connecting with marginalized communities. You might have been gaining new perspectives simply by exchanging with people who think differently than you or being exposed to different ways of doing things. In this process, you may have also experienced a certain level of alienation and perhaps a harder time feeling like you belong to a particular group or community. As you evolve, your vision for what you want to achieve in social terms does also; the remainder of this month might therefore represent an innovative further development of that primary set of goals for your pathway forward.
Mercury and the Sun in Scorpio continue to square Saturn in Aquarius until the 11th which may bring out the iconoclast in you and could also make it harder to relate with the world. It could be important to explore any feelings of alienation coming up at this time as they can be your key to greater integration.
The third week of November should feel pleasant as planets in Scorpio form supportive aspects to both Neptune and Jupiter in Pisces in your philosophical sector. This influx of planets in Water signs could be good news for Cancerian folks, however, it might also be easy to let the week flow through without exerting much effort.
Venus enters Sagittarius on the 15th and Mercury on the 17th, and their conjunction begins on the 17th and concludes on the 25th, so that this timing might help you to tackle your current workload and be more productive. During this time, the Sun enters Sagittarius on the 22nd.
The Sagittarius New Moon arrives a day later on the 23rd, energizing the health and routine sector of your chart for the next month. Jupiter stations direct in Pisces on the day of the New Moon and this stationary direct motion of Jupiter applies to the subsequent thirty day lunation cycle also. This should bring renewed momentum for things related to academia, teaching, or learning. It’s a good time to assess your overall direction and ensure that your sails are ready for further explorations.
Mars retrograde in Gemini comes into a trine with Saturn in Aquarius, starting on the 24th and running into December, and this may allow you to acknowledge hidden stressors. You may feel the need to forcefully push through things that feel stuck at this time, or it could be your cue to listen to what your mental, emotional and physical body needs and adjust accordingly. Give yourself permission to relax if you need it and find the physical outlets to let out excess tension. Trust and listen to the natural wisdom of your body and give it what it needs not only to survive but to thrive.
