KnowCancers Scope November 28 – 29, 2022

It’s all systems go Cancer. Over the next few days we’ll be experiencing Mars (planet of action) harmoniously connecting with Saturn (career, structures, physical manifestation). This can feel like full circle moments, new ideas and overcoming challenges – especially when it comes to making practical moves in the world. Because the Moon (your ruler) is also connecting harmoniously with Mars, you might find yourself specifically overcoming emotional hurdles. It could be a time of cathartic release, sharing and gratitude. This energy carries a strong portal for self-intimacy, so it could be time to connect with yourself and your solitude in an even deeper way. Why not see it as a challenge to get to know yourself even more? Chances are that you’ll enjoy the journey!

KnowCancers October ’22 Scope

Key Themes: Balance, life admin, grounding dreams into reality, self-care

Cancer, this is going to be one of those months in the year that you look back on as being a catalyst. Remaining aware and balanced in yourself will allow you to navigate these intense cosmic vibes with grace and clarity – seeing you come out the other side as a more empowered version of yourself.

On October 2, Mercury goes direct in Virgo and this signature is one that will bring clarity and a sense of focus that you probably haven’t had for a little while. Now’s the time to get your affairs in order; any admin or general mental tasks that may have previously seemed off-putting.

Pluto goes direct on October 8th, and this will bring you more clarity – specifically in the sphere of your relationships. This is a time to reflect on current dynamics between you and those most present in your life. Is everything aligned, healthy, uplifting and supportive? Or are you being stretched? Answers will begin bubbling to the surface around now, and the universe supports you in setting boundaries and making the healthiest choices for yourself. On the flip side, if all is well – this could be a beautiful time to lean further into intimacy and vulnerability with another.

The very next day a Full moon in Aries activates your sector of wealth and physical abundance. I’m sure you’ve heard the importance of cultivating gratitude to bring through more blessings, and this moon (for you) is a reminder of that. It will be a particularly potent time to acknowledge the beauty that surrounds you – to really open your heart, and allow even more goodness to fill any spaces.

Saturn going direct on October 23rd is going to provide you with some much needed harmony when it comes to spheres of work and finances. Because it’s activating your sector of the subconscious, this will be a powerful time to notice any limiting beliefs or deep-seated fears which are holding you back from achieving the abundance you seek. This is a time to go through your psyche with a fine comb, release, renew – and begin grounding your dreams into reality by taking practical steps forward.

We have massive collective energies and upheaval with the Scorpio eclipse which takes place on October 25th. As such an empathic sign (who is indeed ruled by the moon), this will be a key time to focus on keeping your own energy exactly that: your own. Try to avoid denser vibes like gossiping or judgment around this time – they’ll feel worse than usual. It’ll also be worth cultivating patience and compassion for any one going through it (or acting out) at this time. Because this is a south nodal eclipse, it’s almost as though the whole collective will be triggered on an individual level. Be gentle with yourself too!

We close out the month with Mars going retrograde in Gemini – a healing portal which will continue into next month. This initiates a reminder for you to take care of your mental health. Mimimize, and declutter anything (or anyone) negative, that takes up unnecessary space in your mind.

About Cancer

Element: Water

Mode: Cardinal

Ruler: The Moon

Where Youll 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 wouldnt outwardly know it. Cancers 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. Cancers nurturing spirit also makes them great therapists, teachers, interior designers, cooks, and spiritual healers. Theres something about Cancer that is full of wisdom, making them old souls. Thats 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 its 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 Cancers 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. Cancers greatest lesson is to put their own self first and cater to their own needs consistently. In doing so, theyre able to extend the purest type of love into the lives of those around them.
