Today's Cancer Horoscope from Cafe Astrology
October 27, 2020
You may not find it easy to make a firm decision today, dear Cancer, because what you want to do seems to be at odds with what you think is best or most logical. You can feel a little torn between light and expressive needs and your drive to focus on one good thing at a time. You can very much benefit from a break to get your bearings now if it can be managed, and you'll be happy you took it! Retrograde Mercury heads back into your home and family sector today, stimulating your desire to communicate with family members or organize your domestic life in the weeks ahead. Communication with family may not be as straightforward as you'd like while Mercury is retrograde until November 3rd. There can be some level of chaos or mechanical problems around the home that require your attention. Past issues can resurface for review, and you may be looking at a decision made several weeks ago in a new way. After the 3rd, matters unblock and clear up, and thoughts about or understanding of personal and domestic issues clarify. You get the opportunity to strengthen, redo, or rethink some matters, and it's to your benefit, although often annoying.

The Astrology of Today – All Signs
- Two sign ingresses occur today: both Mercury and Venus enter Libra, but from opposite ends of the sign.
- In fact, they form a semi-sextile. This transit can serve to subtly contrast a logical and playful approach.
- It may be all too easy to say things we don’t mean or feel.
- However, we seem to be able to make things work, and while we may not be especially focused today, we’re adaptable and making an effort to understand one another.
- Retrograde Mercury enters Libra today, returning to the sign until November 10th, while Mercury will remain retrograde only until November 3rd.
- Mercury in Libra is conciliatory and analytical.
- While retrograde in the sign, we can be slow to reach a decision – possibly painfully slow, as our minds bounce back and forth between the alternatives, finding merits for any and all of them.
- This period may affect our close partnerships the most. We might rethink old positions and relationships, and our observations tend to be unusually idealized.
- Venus transits Libra starting today and running until November 21st.
- During this cycle, we use charm and diplomacy to attract what we want. There is a stronger desire for companionship, and we’re very accommodating with others–quite willing to negotiate and compromise.
- We prefer that things are done the “right” way, and aggressive or uncouth behavior is more offensive than usual.
- The shadow traits of this position include dependency, inconsistency, and superficiality. To avoid unpleasant situations, we might gloss over deeper issues at play in our relationships.
- We are more artistically inclined during this cycle, seeking out harmony and balance in our environment.
- The Moon spends the day in sensitive, mystical Pisces.
- The void Moon occurs from 8:46 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a sextile to Saturn), until the Moon enters Aries tomorrow, Wednesday, October 28th, at 4:45 AM EDT.

This Month: Cancer
October 2020 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Cancer:
The month ahead is on the quiet side, dear Cancer, with an emphasis on your sector of home and family and some key planets retrograde. There's a general need or desire to look to the past before moving forward.
Mercury's retrograde begins in your romance and creativity sector on the 13th and then moves into your home and family sector on the 27th. Reviving or reworking old projects are possible themes. While you shouldn't get stuck in the past, a review is entirely appropriate, and possibly even profitable and beneficial. You might breathe new life into old projects or consider ways to break out of a rut.
Mars is retrograde all month, continuing from September. On the 1st, you can arrive at important realizations about your work, true calling, business, career, reputation, or true feelings about the direction your life is taking. Listen to your intuition about a matter, but take your time before acting on it. Mars is stirring your ambitions as it transits your solar tenth house, and will continue to do so until January. However, with its retrograde motion, you could feel stuck or frustrated at times. Misunderstandings can be more frequent.
Venus spends much of the month (the 2-27) in your communications house, bringing a more lively spirit to your life. You present your ideas and comments with charm and ease during this cycle. Making social connections and sharing your thoughts come more smoothly and naturally. Your studies, games, learning, and connecting tend to be more enjoyable and satisfying.
While some areas of life seem a little slow or up in the air, there can be a feeling of a breakthrough with a close relationship. You might come to a decision that has been a long time coming. You might be surprised to discover an ally or a newfound faith in someone you already know. You can learn valuable things about someone special in your life, finding new layers to a person or special relationship. A partnership can be a source of inspiration, and the realization of a happiness goal seems more likely through the support or positivity of a significant person.
October can bring some pleasant opportunities for mental stimulation and variety. There may be a surprising new attraction, craving, or interest. You are pushing boundaries just a little in your conversations and interactions, leading to interesting discoveries. It's a great time for personal appeal on a mental level. You might discover new and more satisfying ways to express yourself--you're expanding your options! Whether it's a project, personal writing, or a connection, you want to expand and grow. You're magnetizing good things to you quite naturally, and you express both your feelings and ideas with the same ease.
The New Moon on the 16th can usher in new beginnings and approaches related to your family, domestic world, or living conditions/arrangements. Feelings of being divided or tense can motivate you to make improvements. There can be tensions stirred now, particularly on the professional front or regarding responsibilities and reputation or performance. You'll have to do some juggling, but the central focus should be on getting your personal/home life in order.
The Sun heads into your sector of joy, pleasure, pastimes, and creativity on the 22nd, encouraging you to follow your heart. You might see a past matter related to hobbies, creativity, romance, or children in a brand new way. The information, conversations, or connections you make around the 25th can be meaningful.
The Full Moon on the 31st relates to your social life. You might arrive at important emotional revelations about people in your life and your need for them, or about your place in a group, with friends, or even in the community. Surprises, rebellious feelings, and sudden changes in direction can be part of the picture.
This Year: Cancer
2020 Yearly Horoscope Overview
The year is powerful for sorting out your one-to-one relationships, dear Cancer, and for discovering what you can do on your own, too. The eclipses finish up in your sign by mid-2020, and you’ll not only know where you stand, but you’re also poised for a fresh start.
The Saturn-Pluto conjunction in January helps you assess the strength of certain structures or anchors in your life, particularly involving your relationships. If they’re no longer supporting you, it may be time to break them down before rebuilding. Whether or not you rebuild the same structures or begin something new, it’s a time for recognizing the need to approach your attachments in new, more empowering ways. This influence, in many ways, is about tough love–dysfunctional elements of relating need to go, and you’ll need to be firm to take charge of your life. If something has been limiting or blocking your happiness and fulfillment in your relationships, you’re ready to do something about it.
Fortunately, you have Jupiter blessing the sector of your chart that rules committed relationships most of 2020, bringing wonderfully supportive energy into this area of your life. You’re pairing up for good reasons and good things! This can work on romantic, business, or platonic levels, depending on your current situation and disposition. It’s a brilliant and perhaps pivotal year for close relationships. With Jupiter and Pluto meeting in your partnership sector from April to November, you’re on fire, ready to make sweeping improvements.
New themes entering your life this year involve boosting wellness and wellbeing, particular attention to your support systems, and rediscovering motivation and passions about what you do (work). Venus retrogrades in your privacy sector in May and June, and Mars retrogrades in your career/reputation sector from September to November. Both events suggest you’re looking back before you move forward, encouraging you to discover (or rediscover) what’s in your heart and what drives you. It’s about learning what genuinely touches you, and it’s a powerful process. You’re coming to see those things that have been holding you back from embracing happiness.
In the second half of the year, your career goals or worldly responsibilities and status come under review. As you identify those things that are no longer exciting or motivating, you make room for discovering new passions or rediscovering old motivators that deserve a second look. At times, you may feel that your ambitions and your relationships are at odds, but both areas of your life need special attention, and neither should suffer because of the other.
You’re also in fabulous shape for expanding your mind and experiences, whether through travel, contact with new people, or studies and new interests. In fact, significant connections can be made or enhanced through these things in 2020.
It’s likely to be a beautiful period for developing your social life in perhaps non-traditional ways, but supportive and inspiring nonetheless. New ways of doing business can emerge. Still, for the most part, you’re innovating in your social life. Refreshing new options are opening up to you related to pursuing goals that make you feel connected, happy, and fulfilled. New channels for meeting people or different “types” of friends can rather quickly become your “new normal” this year. Yes, you’re doing a fair amount of inner work and development, but you’re taking the time to reach out and connect. If you’ve felt your social life fell into a rut in recent years, this is all set to change!
Saturn is transitioning out of your partnership sector, where it has spent several years, bringing reality checks and often rather heavy energy to your relationships or your concept of relationships. At times, you’ve seen the less flattering side of others, and yourself brought out through partnering. In this position, Saturn has been directly opposing your sign, and you may have often felt drained, pushed, or prodded, and perhaps tested. While Saturn moves onward on March 21st, it returns July 1st to finish up its “work” on your partnership sector, only officially leaving on December 17th. In other words, it’s on its way out, and this does help take some of the direct pressure off.
Saturn’s new influence will be more prominent in 2021, but you’ll get a taste of it this year. The goal is to identify–and then weed out–unhealthy attachments or dependencies, whether emotional or financial or both, and it’s an important process! Fortunately, you’ll have the help of Jupiter for the first leg of this transit, and you may very well enjoy yourself as you make empowering lifestyle changes.
You’re also learning to make time to rest, renew, heal, and reflect this year.
This Year in Love: Cancer
2020 Love Horoscope for Cancer
While there continues to be intense and serious energy in your partnership sector in 2020, dear Cancer, things are changing. For one, you have the lucky-break planet of joy (Jupiter) in this area of your chart most of the year. For another, Saturn is phasing out of this sector in 2020. Finally, Jupiter joins with Pluto multiple times this year, increasing your motivation and opportunity to improve your relationship situation. Many other boosts are happening this year, but these three are, in my opinion, the highlights.
Saturn continues to transit your partnership house until March 21st, and then later returns to it for its final pass from July 1st-December 17th. This is a rather serious, mature, and responsible transit when it comes to close, binding relationships. It’s a longer-term transit, too, and it’s on its way out this year (it’s been around for a couple of years now).
Jupiter and Saturn working together tend to produce results, and with both of them joining forces in your partnership sector from December 2nd, 2019 to December 17th, 2020, this can be a very significant period for committed partnerships, love-based or otherwise! There can be joy in commitment or in “getting serious” with someone.
In fact, relationships are likely to continue to make headlines in your life this year and beyond.
The year begins with Saturn and Pluto joining forces, and they do so in your partnership sector. Repeat: themes above, but intensified! This energy is about breaking down whatever isn’t working in your life regarding partnerships so that you can rebuild them in more authentic and relevant ways. Jupiter and Pluto align from April to November–they do so precisely three times, but the whole period can be considered a hot zone for this motivational combination. These two help you make improvements and powerful changes that are meaningful to you–all regarding partnership. Of course, the seventh house is about partnerships of all varieties, including business or platonic setups. It all depends on your current life circumstances, age, and where you are in your journey.
Further evidence that you’re exploring your independence and partnering this year is a set of eclipses occurring in your sign and partnership sector until mid-2020.
The North Node moved into your sign on November 6th, 2018. This transit continues until June 2020, bringing with it a strong need to discover your independence. This does not mean excluding a partner from your life–it merely means that to experience balanced relationships, you need to work on building inner peace, rather than focusing on achieving peace and balance through relationships. It’s time to take care of yourself and discover or rediscover your true needs and desires!
You’ve had powerful Solar Eclipses in your sign and opposite sign since the North Node entered your sign..cont’d
Here’s to a happy and successful day!
