November 2012 Cancer Horoscope

Release and Catch

There are two eclipses in this transformational month, although the changes they reflect are likely to be gentle rather than traumatic. On November 13, the Scorpio New Moon in your 5th House of Love and Creativity is a total Solar Eclipse. While this may indicate letting go of a romantic or artistic dream, the lack of difficult planetary aspects to this Sun-Moon conjunction indicates that you will gain more than you lose.

The Full Moon in Gemini on November 28 is a Lunar Eclipse in your 12th House of Soul Consciousness, and it is conjunct boisterous Jupiter. You may be dealing with extraneous spiritual information or an erudite teacher who doesn't resonate with you emotionally. Don't let your mind tell you to follow a path you don't truly feel in your heart.

Another reason to be leery of clever-sounding concepts is Mercury's 20-day retrograde cycle this month. This brainy planet turns backward in your 6th House of Systems on November 6, reenters your 5th House of Self-Expression on November 14, and turns direct on November 26. Assimilating new information, no matter how inspirational, can be more difficult than you anticipate during this period. Take your time to test new ideas to see if they work successfully in your real life instead of just accepting them blindly.

Keep in Mind this Month

Addition by subtraction could be your theme this month. Try simplifying your life to exchange quantity for quality.

Key Dates for Cancer

November 9: Love Without Limits

You receive approval from unexpected sources today, when lucky Jupiter trines Venus. You might also feel guided by an inner sense of knowing that helps you accurately assess the value of people and products. Venus then slides into a sesquisquare with nebulous Neptune that allows faith to blur facts. Being charitable is a good thing, as long as you can afford the price of your kindness.


November 26-28: Take Control of the Wheel

The air hums with excitement with a Sun-Uranus trine on November 26, but you're reluctant to join the party because Venus joining show-stopping Saturn sensitizes you to the possibility of failure. If you're feeling unloved or ill at ease, don't let that keep you on the sidelines. When you focus on your goal, patience and persistence help you get what you want. It's better to set things in motion than to play defense on November 27, when a suspicious Mars-Pluto conjunction takes a relationship issue to a dramatic climax. The flirty Gemini Full Moon Eclipse on November 28, though, is an instant reminder that you have other options if someone doesn't want to play your game.
