Monthly Astrological Forecast: Cancer

October 2013 Overview

Rise to the Challenge
Cancer October Horoscope

by Jeff Jawer

Stressful relationships push you one way and then suddenly pull you another this month. Although it's unwise to let go of control at work and allow others to change the direction of your life, it's even more foolish to think that you can ignore the demands being placed on you. Ultimately, your smartest strategy is to seek an effective balance between holding on to the way things are and being open to positive change.

Nevertheless, destabilizing forces on the job require you to respond when the diplomatic Libra New Moon squares provocative Pluto and opposes disruptive Uranus on October 4. Handling the current situation doesn't necessarily resolve the deeper dilemma, which has its roots in a complicated Saturn-Uranus quincunx that first occurred on April 12.

Stabilizing Saturn repeats this uncomfortable aspect to unmanageable Uranus on October 5, making it difficult to maintain your creative integrity while also trying to forge a new vision of your future. You may need to acknowledge that your plans need serious revision when fleet-footed Mercury runs into stern Saturn on October 8.

You're quickly convinced that you have little to worry about when pretty Venus and the radiant Sun aspect illusory Neptune and sanguine Jupiter on October 10-12. The incorrigible Aries Full Moon Eclipse on October 18 shakes your public 10th House of Career, catalyzing much-needed professional change while sweeping away the accumulated tension.

Mercury's retrograde turn on October 21, along with the Sun's shift into resolute Scorpio on October 23, reminds you that patience is one of your greatest strengths. Although you cannot deny that these are serious times, the Sun-Neptune trine on October 25 and the Mars-Pluto trine on October 31 give you the courage to smile as you move through these days with unflappable resolve. —Tarot.com
