Cancer Monthly Horoscope for November 2020
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — You may feel like you’re losing ground on the career front, though I assure you this is unlikely to be true. You may be experiencing setbacks and delays, though you’re also establishing yourself in some new way: taking some territory and making your mark. The vital factor is that you set the terms of what you consider your life work. You may not have thought of it that way. For many years (ending in the spring of 2019) there were scattering influences that made it difficult for you to focus or take full ownership. But now Chiron has taken over this area of your life. That is about commitment, in Aries and the 10th it’s about the mantle of leadership, and Chiron is inherently a holistic influence. Your learning task is to see the way in which everything is connected to everything else. This is how you need to think to make maximum use of this magnificent, long-term astrology. What Mars spending six months in Aries is about is fully activating the warrior spirit which is to say: your persistent determination. The beauty of this placement is that between you and it, you’re figuring out what you want to accomplish. You’re also figuring out what you need to accomplish, and you’re learning the difference. In these weeks before Mars stations direct, focus one topic, please: those desires and those necessities. It should not be an especially long list. You want to get to the heart and soul of the matter. You might include one or two things that you consider impossible. This will feed you with just enough aspirational energy to go beyond your present capacities. As the Cancerian Marshall McLuhan said, “Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a metaphor?” Men and women alike.
Sign Description for Cancer
(June 21-July 22) — Nurturing, loving, devoted, cuddly, milky and self-centered, Cancer has it all. Your sign is not multifaceted; rather, you change like the tides, and are a little different every single day. Less polite people call you moody. What, not everyone has moods? Why do they all take things so personally? Or is it you who takes others so personally?
In any event, those born under your sign possess a certain desire for intimacy that is mingled with defensiveness about getting too close to others, and this can send a mixed message. It’s important that you have a sense of control in your relationships, but you don’t want to take that too far. You won’t respect weak people, so you may as well surround yourself with strong ones who respect your space and who feel at home in your home. It is sometimes said that the crab walks sideways, and your most important learning in this life is to be direct about what you feel and what you want, without feeling guilty about it. Your inclination is to experience your relationships in a structured way; you would have more fun if you would be more flexible. Remember that the people you love now are not as powerful as your mother was, so don’t treat them like they’re her.
Keep a Moon calendar on your desk and know the current phase and sign all the time. Cancer is one of the water signs, and is also a cardinal sign, being the beginning of summer in the Northern Hemisphere and winter south of the equator. If you want to know more about yourself, study the position of the Moon in your chart, as well as what are called the lunar nodes. These will reveal the deeper elements of your nature, and more than any other sign, the Moon’s house, sign and aspects may reveal your most authentic nature.
