October 2011 Cancer Love Horoscope

Hungry for love

This is a month where you may be called upon to exchange some peace to get a more profound connection with someone. October begins with the Sun and Venus in lovely Libra and your 4th House of Roots. This puts a premium on harmony in your household and within yourself. It requires reason and willingness to compromise, and a reasonable and accommodating partner, of course. 

Discussing issues in an objective manner can be helpful for finding the equilibrium you seek. Yet there can also be a sense that you're watching your life, whether you're single or have a partner, rather than fully feeling it. 

That may start to change when loving Venus enters passionate Scorpio and your 5th House of Romance on October 8. This transit intensifies your emotions and increases your desire to connect with body, mind and soul. You may become more seductive, sending signals that you want to take what's in your head and feel it in your heart. 

On October 23 the Sun follows suit, adding another degree of desire that can spur provocative behavior. You need to feel wanted in very strong ways and are unlikely to be satisfied with the status quo. Taking risks whether you're single or with someone is not your usual style, but it could characterize your behavior then. This is not a time to play the innocent and pretend that you aren't hungry to be loved, to be touched. It's natural if you feel that, but it takes an adult's sense of control to handle that kind of heat without getting burned.
