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.

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.comPREVIOUS MONTHNEXT MONTH
