Cancer Monthly Horoscope: October 2015Finding balance within and maintaining peace at home are key issues for you this month. Objective Mercury enters harmony-seeking Libra and your 4th House of Home and Family on October 3, exposing you to alternative points of view that can lead you to reinterpret your personal history. Your treasured (and painful) memories take on a different color in light of your current situation. While all this might leave you unsettled, it’s also your opportunity to untie emotional knots that prevent you from reaching your full potential. Sometimes you have to let go of what you know to move ahead. The Libra New Moon on October 7 underscores this vital theme of opening your mind and facing an opposing point of view. The purpose is not to prove you wrong, but to illuminate the dark corners of emotion that have been closed by fear or self-doubt, freeing you from the limits they impose upon you.
Venus, the planet of love, turns retrograde in your 5th House of Romance on October 8, slowing down a budding heart connection or delaying a creative project. Yet you can reap huge benefits by stepping back from the fire of passion to reassess these situations and regroup before Venus turns direct on November 18. The Full Moon in action-packed Aries on October 22 is in the last degree of this fiery sign in your 10th House of Career and Public Life. Responsibilities may suddenly be thrust upon you under less-than-ideal circumstances. You may be called on to save a poorly managed project or to clean up a colleague’s mistakes. Your challenge is to come up with a successful approach where others have already failed.
Cancer Key Dates October 2015
Say good-bye to logic on October 2, when an electric opposition between Mercury and Uranus charges conversations with excitement and intuition spurs you to discover answers in unconventional ways. Still, impatience may cause you to overplay your hand. A sultry conjunction between Venus and Mars on October 3, though, smoothes out rough edges. Your charm and diplomacy overcome any resistance to your creative ideas and romantic desires.
Certainty about your emotions and family issues can be shaken when the New Moon in ambivalent Libra falls in your 4th House of Foundations on October 7. Your first reaction doesn’t count when you encounter compelling ideas that gently push you out of your comfort zone. These can alter the nature of a close relationship and invite you to consider new professional opportunities. Cautious thinking is appropriate as Mercury joins Saturn on October 8. If it comes in the form of doubt, investigating further online or consulting with an expert who can provide you with facts should allay your fears.
An edgy semisquare between pushy Mars and controlling Pluto provokes jealousy on October 11. If you feel pressured to perform at work or to please a demanding lover, just dig in your heels and say no. Be honest about your desires and act in your own best interest now. A quirky connection between Venus and Uranus on October 12 unsettles relationships and arouses unconventional attractions.
Sassy and sweet make a delicious mix when Mars enters fun-loving Sagittarius in your 6th House of Work while retrograde Venus joins the Sun in your 5th House of Love and Play. You could be stretched to your limits on the job or when dealing with routine tasks. Yet a dash of charm gains you the support you need to turn an arduous chore into a delightful activity.
