Best tell your family to watch out! The angry planet Mars is moving signs this week and for you as a Cancerian, he's in your Home and Family Zone. That suggests tempers could be flaring at home more than usual. We all know that Cancerians like nothing more than domestic bliss. So if you can, channel this Martian energy into clearing up your home or sorting out where you're going to live, rather than allowing the Mars fire to burn your relationships.

This month is going to be big for you, for many reasons! The first few days of the month will be fairly calm, but by October 6th, we will have an Aries Full Moon taking place in the achievement part of your Sky. This will be a time to embrace attention, because other people will likely be taking notice of you. Reaching a state of greater success is likely going to be a big focus for you. On October 10th, Jupiter, the Planet of growth and wisdom, will move into the Sign of Scorpio. This will be a very positive change for you, and will likely be the beginning of a year of luck and happiness. This is a time of embracing joy, and expressing your creative side! And finally, On October 20th we will have a Libra New Moon, which will be taking place in the home and family part of your Sky. This may be a time that your home life undergoes a new beginning. Moving; redecorating; or simply spending more time at home are all cosmically supported. You also may find that you're drawn to connect with your roots, so it will be an amazing time to get to know yourself on a deeper level. Frequently, connecting with family reminds us of who we are, so it's a good idea to reach out to mom and dad towards the end of the month. Overall, October is a time of balancing your public pursuits with your private life.
How many times have you read what it means to be a Cancerian and wondered why it doesn't feel 100% right? The thing is that over the years, Cancerians have been drawn and redrawn as homebodies who want to cook by day and tend the kids by night and pretty much do nothing else. What a load of tosh! In between the baking and the child raising you are one of the most dynamic signs of the zodiac.
The reason behind your Home In The Little House On The Prairie- reputation is that you are intuitive - thanks to the fact you are ruled by the Moon. Add that to being kind-hearted (as most Cancerians are) and of course you pick up on others' feelings and then want to nurture those in need! This tendency to nurture others usually means you feed them. You listen to them. You get to see a passing parade of people through your life, all wanting some TLC. They come over for coffee and a chat with someone who makes them feel safe and you get another chance to Do Your Thing and care for them. Polish that halo. But we also know you have plenty more sides toyour personality.
Family and friends are important to you and you build a nest for your loved ones that only a fool thinks he or she could penetrate. Yes, you like to nurture others, but not because you're some rosy-cheeked old Granny-type in an apron. You also nurture because Cancer is an uber feminine sign (ruled by the Moon), and nurturing is part of the whole feminine thang.
What a lot of people don't mention is that Cancer is also associated with Diana, the Huntress. Far from being an old Granny-type, Diana the Huntress was a fabulous, go-ahead woman (who may or may not have liked to cook pig-on-a-spit for her beloveds).
Cancerians are often told that they are moody, and this is, or isn't true, depending on your definition of the word moody. If you take moody to mean frequent bad moods, it's not true. But if you take it to mean changing attitudes and moods, it is. Yes, being Moon-ruled means that as La Luna passes through all the signs of the zodiac each month - spending around two and a half days in each sign - you pick up on her vibe much more than most. A Gemini Moon? Chat, chat, chat. A Pisces Moon? Break out the wine and tell me a romantic story.
A tendency to cling to the past is one of the pitfalls Cancerians have to avoid. Times move on and things change - accepting this is one of the Cancerians' challenges. Being tenacious is one thing, clinging on when you know it's all said and done is another. Cancerians are also renowned for having the same hard exterior and soft interior of their symbol, the Crab. Fine but make sure you do let others know when you are feeling vulnerable - that is one of the keys to happiness for you.
What you need more than anything and more than most people is a sense of security. If you read advice written by astrologers to people romancing Cancerians, your lovers are usually advised to reassure you that they love you at least once a day, preferably 10 times. And yet, though you love to love and you love to nurture, you are often repelled by overly-needy people, almost as though you prefer to chose who you assist. But assist you do. No matter what your sex, you tend to have loads of female friends, and you mother most of them, just as you also mother your lover. Just remember to allow others to look after you, too.
Like they Tarot card of The Moon, you're quite enigmatic. Work it, Cancer, work it!
