Cancer Mom Horoscope: October 1 – October 7
Ohmmm… The key to keeping your sanity intact over the next four months is silence, (a novel concept at Chateau Cancer) and self-reflection, thanks to Jupiter moving retrograde in your spiritual twelfth house until January 30. If there’s an issue that you keep coming up against, now’s the time to work through it with a therapist, energy worker, or a holistic practitioner who specializes in the subconscious, like a hypnotist or EMDR therapist. When organizing your appointments, be sure to give yourself a couple of kid-free hours post-session. You’ll need that quiet time to digest and process. You’ll also require more meditative moments than usual, so have a system in place for impromptu childcare, perhaps with a neighbor or a nearby relative. Allow yourself to retreat and recharge. Remember that you’ll be much more present with your loved ones when you’ve taken care of your needs.
On Saturday, go-get-em Mars moves into your sixth house of work and healthy routines. If you work outside the home, taking the initiative on the professional front can carry you far. Harness this fiery planet’s energy and commit to a fitness regimen that works for you. Whether you sign up for regular Pilates classes or invest in a treadmill, just do it. Your threshold for stress is lower during this period, so guard against burnout and prioritize self-care. Tip: minimize multi-tasking. Pushing yourself or trying to do too much at once can lead to accidents. Also on Saturday, stern and structured Saturn launches a three-year transit of Scorpio and your fifth house of kids and love. Your children will demand more of your attention, but this phase isn’t about indulging them. Your soft side sometimes has a hard time laying down the law, but it’s better for them in the long run. Set limits and create structures that teach your little ones the importance of respecting boundaries and delayed gratification. On the love front, Saturn in Scorpio wants to help you break unhealthy patterns so that you can experience intimacy in a long-lasting relationship. Single Crabs would do well by signing up for self-help workshop or a few sessions in NLP to move past those blocks. Coupled? If you’re not married, you could find yourself walking down the aisle, officially transforming your family unit into a two-parent household—just the way you like it.
