KTZ Daily Scopes April – October 2023

Skymates, in honor of retrograde and eclipse season, KTZ is taking a break from offering daily scopes. We’re resting, regenerating, and re-imagining. That’s what retrograde and eclipse season is all about, and as astrologers, it’s important that we practice what we preach. We’ll still share weekly/monthly scopes with you during this break. Subscribe to KTZ’s email newsletter (KnowTheZodiac.com/newsletter) to know when daily scopes will be back. You can also order my book, Signs & Skymates, as well as KTZ’s digital products on our site to deepen your astro knowledge. Remember: you are your own astrologer. KTZ astrologers Adela, Nisha, and myself are here as guides, but the answers have always existed within you. Thanks for the love and support.

KnowCancers September ’23 Scope

Key themes: Finding the lessons and silver lining, honoring yourself; your body and health, emotions and inner world. Gratitude

Cancer, this is one of those months where a lot can turn around. While we do still have multiple planets retrograde, the universe is inviting you into a grounding and focused place – from which change, and an intentional pursuit of your dreams can come through.

Honoring your body as a temple is the first key theme of the month, and you’ll be feeling it when (on September 3rd) Venus ends its retrograde, going direct in Leo. This has been one of the more tumultuous retrogrades, and you’ve probably experienced some significant shifts in your relationships, finances, and/or health. Remember: retrogrades ask us to notice anything (and everything) that isn’t in alignment with our highest good. As this one draws to a close, it’ll be worth reflecting upon the challenges of the last two months, and asking yourself what lessons were hidden within them. You’ve made it to the other side Cancer. You’re doing great.

Still, we do have another retrograde journey beginning the very next day (September 4th – December 31st), with Jupiter going retrograde through Taurus. This kind of retrograde asks us to collectively acknowledge what we don’t know, and to learn into a willingness to learn more. As this activates your sector of community, you’ll be invited to learn about new ways of understanding and being a part of this global human family, your community, and even social circle. Perhaps you have some blind spots, or areas unbeknownst to you that could radically change and improve your life, when it comes to relating. Sagittarius energy is always about doing rather than thinking. Lived wisdom, rather than learnt through books, intuition over logic. For this reason, it’ll be a potent time to throw yourself (gently) into new environments and anywhere that makes you feel that sense of nervous excitement and joy. Jupiter represents personal expansion, and that’s the beautiful journey you’re now on, now until the end of the year.

The Virgo New Moon (on September 14th) will evoke themes of wellness, consistency and detoxification. As this activates your sector of mental processing, it will be the perfect time to check in with your mental health. How’re you feeling, really? Are you distracting yourself or using coping mechanisms? What could be done to bring your mind into even more balance? New Moons always allow us to invite in new energy, so this one will be particularly powerful for planting new, healthy habits. If you’ve been considering therapy, or even simply sharing with a friend, this could be the time.

The (fall or spring) equinox unfolds on September 23rd, initiating Libra season – and for you, evoking a focus on emotional health, home, and healing. This four week portal invites you to connect with yourself deeply, Cancer. By adopting the objective and light energy that accompanies Libra season, you’ll be granted a unique lens to witness (without becoming subject to) your emotional unfolding. Grant yourself the time and space to reflect, and honor your needs. If there are any feelings or intuitive nudges that you’ve been ignoring, it’s time to face them. You’ve got this Cancer, the universe loves and supports you in aligning with your truth.

Plus, anything out of alignment, can be released with the Aries Full Moon (September 29th). This moon activates your sector of health, beauty and wealth. It’ll be a potent time for gratitude practices; those which bring your remembrance of the gifts and blessings that currently fill your life, so that you can create the resonance necessary for calling in more of the same.

About Cancer

Element: Water

Mode: Cardinal

Ruler: The Moon

Where You’ll Find Them: Walking down the beach, cooking soul food, snuggling in bed

What They Avoid: Confrontation, deadlines, and overly aggressive situations

Cancer, the fourth sign of the zodiac, is quite possibly the most sensitive — but you wouldn’t outwardly know it. Cancer’s symbol is The Crab, and this explains their tendency to hide in their shell whenever the outward world gets too tough to handle. As a Water sign ruled by the Moon, Cancer is deeply emotional, and easily absorbs the vibes in their environment. Cancer is full of compassion for the world, particularly the underprivileged, the needy, children, animals, and the oppressed. There is a nostalgic element to Cancer that can lead to them living in the past and having trouble letting go.

Professionally, Cancer is a great collaborator and team-player. However, sometimes they remain in the background for far too long, out of fear of stepping into the spotlight. Cancers make incredible artists, but they can be overly protective of their work rather than sharing their art with the world. If Cancer is able to overcome such shyness, their art and transparency can heal the world. Cancer’s nurturing spirit also makes them great therapists, teachers, interior designers, cooks, and spiritual healers. There’s something about Cancer that is full of wisdom, making them old souls. That’s why people may joke around and call them the grandparents of the zodiac, even in their youth.

Cancer loves to take care of those they love, so having a Cancer as a friend is a true blessing. What Cancer must learn, however, is to establish healthy boundaries and not let their generosity or kindness be taken advantage of. Sometimes Cancer gives away too much of their energy, and if it’s not reciprocated it can feel very painful. Instead of directly letting the person know about that pain, Cancer may resort to passive-aggressive behavior, and that only exacerbates the problem. Cancer therefore will benefit from being more honest and assertive in friendships and relationships.

As a lover, while Cancer may be very slow to trust and open up to you, they are definitely some of the biggest believers in love. Many Cancers dream of having a family and being married to their soulmate, and this can lead to them becoming deeply invested in the relationships they pursue, to the point of sometimes being clingy or possessive of their lover(s). This can sometimes scare their lover(s) away, but at other times it reassures their lover(s) of Cancer’s loyalty. Whatever the case may be, Cancer would benefit from directing all of that love and attention they offer others back to themselves first and foremost. Cancer’s greatest lesson is to put their own self first and cater to their own needs consistently. In doing so, they’re able to extend the purest type of love into the lives of those around them.
