Cancer Mom Horoscope: October 8 – October 14
A little competition is good for your soul, Cancer. Even if you’ve been a stay-at-home mom for a while and feel out of the game, that’s no reason to keep yourself on the bench. Don’t play it safe, Crab. The cosmos call on you to challenge yourself this week. Take a risk. If being a mom has limited your adult interactions, it’ll feel scary to put yourself out there again, but it will be well worth it. What’s more, some of your “opposition” could transform into future players for Team Cancer. Draw on the expertise of someone who has made it far in the area you long to excel at. (Bonus if this person is also a mother who understands the challenges of balancing parenthood and personal desires.) Tip: Someone from another culture or a different background than your own could be just the mentor you need right now. When it comes to your love life, you’re craving a deeper commitment, thanks to serious Saturn’s first week in your passionate fifth house of romance. Last Friday, Saturn launched its three-year tour there, activating a longing for a stable and loving partner for you and your babes, and perhaps even the inspiration to expand your brood. If you’ve got a touch of baby fever, talk it out with your partner to make sure you’re on the same page. Whether you’re a single mama or already attached, work the Law of Attraction by embodying the qualities you want in a mate. If you want someone who is a patient parent, exercise tolerance with your own kids. Do you want someone who can be counted on? Be there for your loved ones. This cycle nudges you to look inside as a way of manifesting a more serious commitment. Couple’s counseling, individual therapy, or a dating coach are all viable options to bring you closer to greater intimacy, not an easy feat for some skittish Crabs. Don’t despair though, Cancer, it’s not all heavy vibes this week. Neptune injects some flirtatious energy into your interactions. Let your playful side out—the kind you only use with grown-ups—and romance will no longer be just a distant pre-baby memory.
