Today's Cancer Horoscope from Cafe Astrology
October 18, 2021
Mercury stations and turns direct today, dear Cancer, and while this change of direction brings less indecision as you advance, today can be a little confusing. There can be improved communications and more information that helps you move forward. Over the coming days and weeks, you'll find life a little easier to navigate as projects or appointments clear up and motivation increases. Home projects that were left undone now resume. Keep things simple for best results, and take your time! With Mars in harmony with Jupiter today, you're feeling especially optimistic. Personal, financial, or domestic matters can be fruitful. Support on mental, physical, economic, or spiritual levels can arrive, whether you are giving it or receiving it! There can be pleasant intensity or activity in an intimate relationship and possibly with home projects. You might explore new ways of relating to loved ones. You are more confident and courageous about getting results, and this attitude contributes significantly to the chances of meeting with success. Responses to your actions, plans, and ideas are favorable and warm. You may have an opportunity to take action on a personal or family matter today.

October 2021 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Cancer:
In October, your attention often turns to personal matters, domestic affairs, and family or home life, dear Cancer. With Mercury retrograde until the 18th, your personal life is animated but not consistently smooth. However, any backtracking you need to do now will contribute significantly to the strength of future plans.
A new project or approach to your personal affairs and home life is in order from the 6th. New beginnings and a fresh start relate to family, home life, long-term investments/ business, and comfort and safety matters. You can feel raring to go but should probably watch for impulsiveness or prematurity. Consider that Mercury remains retrograde until the 18th, and while you can be revving up on the 6-9, you may not have all the information you need to push ahead. You might return to an old project or problem, or your personal or home life can be very busy or even hectic, as something is up in the air.
If you find the proper channels to express it, a more courageous and bold approach to your life opens up doors. Watch for ego conflicts and impatience, however. Aim to pour extra energy into a household project or invigorating activity with family for best results. Being active and productive is the goal.
Through most of October, you're likely to experience a lot of energy centering around the home or with family. Instead, this can be a more demanding time for you, in general. You might be redecorating or reorganizing. Channel this energy constructively instead of allowing it to turn into restlessness or conflict.
With Saturn's direct turn on the 10th, you're likely to gain more clarity with finances or a relationship. This turnaround can also boost your conviction to make a significant lifestyle change. You may see some forward progress with debts or financial support from this date forward. There could be the need to buckle down that prompts you to be more attentive about, or responsible for, a matter. It's also possible that you gain more clarity in your intimate life or about an important project.
Jupiter turns direct on the 18th, and Mercury also ends its retrograde on that date. You can feel more confident about dealing with tricky emotions and complicated problems. Certain delays or blocks lift, or the information you need to move forward comes through! While you've seen progress before this date, it's been slow going. Now, you feel some forward momentum building.
Transits now can serve to open your heart and produce flowing energy related to family or emotions. New ideas and solutions are in the offing. You can feel quite a bit of enthusiasm building, and a sense of support is uplifting. Your personal life, intimate relationships, and family or household matters are in particularly good form. Emotional, financial, or domestic affairs can be especially rewarding and fruitful. There can be pleasant intensity or activity in an intimate relationship and possibly with home projects. You may be exploring new ways of relating to loved ones with great results.
The Full Moon on the 20th occurs at the top of your solar chart, reminding you of the need to pay special attention to your work or reputation. A responsibility or a call to action is possible now. You might recognize the need to perform or take the lead. While you could feel some pressure to perform, don't push yourself too hard, as there's a tendency to worry a little too much at this time.
From the 23rd, and even further from the 30th, your focus turns to entertainment, romance, and creative self-expression. As such, you end the month far more outgoing than you began it. It's a terrific time for recognizing your need to play, enjoy yourself, have some fun, and share your affection or creations with others. It can undoubtedly be your time to shine.
This Year: Cancer
2021 Yearly Horoscope Overview
Your private life, inner world, and intimate life are in the spotlight in 2021, dear Cancer.
Themes recently entering your life involve boosting wellness and wellbeing, particular attention to your support systems, and rediscovering motivation and passions about what you do (work).
You may have been reworking and reviewing your career goals or worldly responsibilities and status in the latter part of 2020, and you’re now more “in the know.” Ideally, you’ve made some room for discovering new passions or rediscovering old motivators. You begin 2021 with a stronger sense of what you want. New ways of doing business continue to emerge.
Unique or non-traditional themes continue in your social life this year, and in some ways, are more prominent, sometimes problematic. You’re innovating and adapting to changing scenery with friendships and networks.
With Saturn now consistently in your intimacy sector, the goal is to identify and then weed out unhealthy attachments or dependencies, whether emotional or financial or both. It’s a powerful process! Fortunately, you have the help of Jupiter for the first leg of this transit, for much of 2021, and you may very well enjoy yourself as you make empowering lifestyle changes.
You continue to appreciate the need for time to rest, renew, heal, and reflect this year as the North Node finishes up its transit of your privacy sector. Getting to a better balance between work and rest is the challenge this year, and it seems that committing to taking more quality downtime is the path to this end.
You’re getting in touch with deeper desires or hidden elements of your relationships and yourself in 2021. You’re learning who and what you can count on, financially and emotionally.
The year is strong for learning about and attending to your inner needs and resources more diligently. While you’re phasing into a more outgoing period when Jupiter harmonizes with your sign, the year holds remarkable opportunities to improve, prepare, straighten out, and discover, especially in the worlds of intimacy, personal growth, and finances. Financial help or advice, dealings, and support can be in stronger focus.
The year can be favorable to work through tax or debt issues, gain support or backing for financial initiatives, or combine resources/talents with a partner. Lifestyle changes, living more joyfully, or committing to taking better care of health can be in focus.
There is a contrast between the serious, profound, and intense energy related to your intimate world in 2021 and experimental, rebellious, freedom-loving themes in your social life. Your relationships with different people can be markedly different.
On career or public fronts, you’re learning to live your truth, striving toward more authentic life path goals or career paths, and being honest with yourself.
This Year in Love: Cancer
2021 Love Horoscope for Cancer
The year seems more about what’s no longer happening in your chart than what’s new, dear Cancer. Saturn has phased out of your partnership sector in 2021, and this takes off some of the direct pressure on you to manage your close relationships, for one. Jupiter has left your partnership sector, and eclipses are no longer happening in your sign. Overall, relationship headlines are not as dramatic in 2021.
Jupiter in your intimacy sector much of the year (until May 13th, and then from July 28-December 28) can work magic on your intimate and sexual relationships. Sexual opportunities are likely to abound, or your focus on one partner becomes more expansive, warm, and intimate. However, Saturn is here too, so it’s temperate, moderate energy rather than a wildly expansive one.
Uranus in your social sector (until 2026!) points to lively, unusual, and exciting friendships continuing from last year. It can also indicate disruptions and unreliability in your social life, as well as off-and-on affinities. Interestingly, Uranus is one of two rulers of your intimacy sector, and with it spending several years in your friendship/networking sector, for some Cancers, there can be significant intimate connections with friends or friends of friends.
There is a contrast happening between the serious, profound, and intense energy related to your intimate world, and experimental, rebellious, freedom-loving themes in your social life. Essentially, you’re likely to notice markedly different energy in your life with different relationships this year.
Power struggles and conflicts in close partnerships are not entirely a thing of the past since Pluto will still spend more time in your partnership sector (it’s a long-term guest here), but Saturn has moved on and eclipses have left your sign for a while, so life is less intense. Ideally, you have a deeper understanding of your needs. You can be especially…cont’d
Here’s to a happy and successful day!
