Cancer October 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


Sometimes you have to marvel at the way the stars fall and you appreciate, by looking at the big picture, how perfect this is. Professionally you have a quiet month and I mean an exceptionally quiet month. So much so that Eris, in your career sector since 1926, is spending her first full month on her own in eight years and her last for another three decades. It has been years since there has been enough silence professionally, that you have a chance to revisit what it is you’re fighting for. Eris is the warrior princess of the cosmos and for your entire lifetime has been the source of your competitive spirit, whether with your personal or professional goals and ambitions.

This is a rare opportunity to connect with Eris and it comes just before Uranus is due to retrograde back into your career sector on the 7th November, just two days before Jupiter’s game changing return to your work sector. Things are about to get incredibly busy, with this a rare opportunity for silence, with a chance to pull back and regroup. Yet what makes this so perfect, is that with Jupiter in his last full month in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, there is a chance to embrace this.

Knowing that he will be the course of a busy turn of events next month, Jupiter was always going to push to make this month as playful as possible. This is also an important month for home and family matters, as October always is. While the professional gods create their first really quiet month in eight years, there is a chance to find both a balance between work and play and the right work/life balance, before life becomes a lot busier from next month.

Love 2017Cancer October 2018 Love Horoscope

No matter what, with the Sun always returning to your romantic sector in October, this is the month when the love gods will always get around to you. No matter what kind of romantic drought you’re in or the dearth of support from the love gods, you know that come October the Sun will return. Except this year there is no romantic drought, no dearth and the love gods have been here all year. The biggest danger when you have a planet like Jupiter spend a year in your romantic sector, is complacency. In his last full month, Jupiter is doing everything he can to make sure that doesn’t happen and he has plenty of support.

That support kicked in last month when Venus, planet of love returned for what should have been a 24 day visit to your romantic sector. Instead, Venus will turn retrograde on the 6th October and rather than leaving, she is here for the rest of the month. As Jupiter continues to look to the future, Venus will open the doors to the past and second chances. In the last full month of this lucky year for love and for matters of the heart in general, Venus is making sure no stone is left unturned. Mercury, planet of communication will return on the 10th October to give your heart a voice and to put heart and mind on the same page.

By the time the Sun returns on the 24th October and the solar spotlight shifts onto matters of the heart, this will reveal an exciting situation. This is also an important month on the relationship front, though the relationship gods are happy to wait in order to let romantic matters go first. It is Pluto’s direct turn in your relationship sector on the 1st October that finally turns all your relationship focus onto the present and the future, rather than the past.

Money 2017Cancer October 2018 Money Horoscope

This is an important month on both the income and financial fronts, but fortunately they are no longer getting in each other’s way. During Mars’ first three months in your financial sector, from May to August, there was planetary activity in your income sector throughout that time, with multiple oppositions creating periods of financial tension. When you threw in the six weeks that Mars spent in retrograde motion, then there was not only financial tension, but a feeling of being stuck or stalled.

Mars returned last month, just days after the last planet left your income sector, with his first, last and only full month back in your financial sector, filled with nothing but support. This has already seen Mars start to fuel your financial confidence, passions and fighting spirit. Chances are you’re starting to get excited about taking your power back, even if you’re not sure of the ‘when, where and how’. With Mars not leaving until the 16th November, the warrior planet of the cosmos’ longest visit in decades still has plenty of time to run.

In the meantime, as the North Node spends its last full month in your income sector, it is well out of the way of another opposition from Mars and in fact, income and money matters are minding their own business, in their own lane. While Mercury left your income sector early last month, bringing 14 months of planetary activity to a close, this has created more than enough momentum and traction. In fact, it is now that you’re likely to see income matters flow more easily, of their own volition.

Career 2017Cancer October 2018 Career Horoscope

October is a month or at least the majority of the month, is a chance to regroup, catch your breath and even to step back. While Mercury will return to your work sector it won’t be until the 31st October and as if sensing that you needed time to regroup, even career forces are pulling back. Until Mercury returns the only planet in either of your two professional houses is the dwarf planet Eris, who is spending her first full month on her own in your career sector in eight years and her last for another three decades.

It is extremely rare to have things so quiet on the professional front, but with Uranus returning to your career sector next month and Jupiter to your work sector and both in the early days of the month, this is the quiet before the storm. Eris has been in your career sector since 1926, so for most of us for our entire lifetime, with the warrior princess of the cosmos responsible for your competitive spirit. Spending her first, last and only full month on her own in eight years, this is a chance to regroup and come back to your personal truth.

Mercury’s return to your work sector on the 31st October is a chance to get your head in the game ahead of Jupiter’s return just nine days later. On the 9th November your busiest and most expansive year for job growth in over a decade is kicking off and life is about to become a lot busier. And not just on the job front, with career developments kicking in next month that will only expand over the coming months as well. When the professional gods offer you a quiet month, take it. With Eris in retrograde motion this is a chance to reflect, but also to catch your breath before things take off again.
