November 2011 Cancer Horoscope

Lost and found

Changes at work this month increase your independence yet rock your stability. The excitement begins Nov. 2 - 3, when value-conscious Venus and clever Mercury enter adventurous Sagittarius and your 6th House of Employment, trining brilliant Uranus in your 10th House of Career. Still, your clarity of purpose wavers and uncertainty builds around Nov 5 - 7 -- you may feel lost if you're not seeing results, and don't know whether to be more forceful or to retreat and try again later. The determined Taurus Full Moon on Nov. 10 falls in your 11th House of Long-Term Goals, reminding you where you want to go and revealing a sensible plan for getting there.

The lingering stability of the long-lasting Jupiter-Pluto trine that was exact on Oct. 28 is reactivated by Mars from Nov. 16 - 23 as it completes a Grand Earth Trine with these two powerful planets. Projects you initiate now will endure, so consider your priorities before wasting your energy on something unimportant.

Don't be surprised if holiday plans unravel with trickster Mercury turning retrograde on Nov. 24, followed by a Sagittarius New Moon Eclipse on Nov. 25. Because both of these events occur in your 6th House of Details, overlooking the littlest things can create the biggest headaches. Although you may feel as if you've been run through the mill, a sweet Venus-Jupiter trine on Nov. 27 indicates a happy ending to a hectic few days.

Keep in Mind this Month
As much as you might try to avoid getting caught in a rut, familiar habits can be reassuring in times of change.

Key Dates for Cancer

Nov. 10 - 12: No Sudden Moves
Some Full Moons stir up overwhelming activity in your subconscious mind, but the reliable Taurus Full Moon on Nov. 10 can actually steady your emotions, rather than inundating you with them. Only a few hours after this lunation, demonstrative Mars quietly slips into careful Virgo, further grounding your energy and encouraging you to stick to your current plans. Nevertheless, a skillful Saturn-Pluto quintile on Nov. 11 suggests that you have more tricks up your sleeve than anyone realizes. Unfortunately, it's not helpful to suddenly play them all at once, even if you're provoked by the reckless Mars-Uranus connection on Nov. 12.

Nov. 23 - 25: Cover all Your Bases
You're eager to live life on your own terms -- and you'll get away with most of it on Nov. 23, when the Sun in your 6th House of Self-Improvement trines rowdy Uranus in your 10th House of Public Responsibility. A powerful Mars-Pluto trine adds strength to your convictions now, giving you the stamina to finish what you start. But Mercury's retrograde turn on Nov. 24 and the cavalier Sagittarius Solar Eclipse on Nov. 25 suggest that you might bolt ahead even without having all your ducks in a row. Don't exhaust your resources; ask for the help you need before it's too late.
