Welcome to November, Cancer! At the end of October, you tapped into your inner caregiver, finding ways to make Halloween fun for others while keeping it safe. It's often thought that there's no problem you can't solve with your warmth, as you're one of the most hospitable signs of the zodiac. Keep up that positive and loving attitude, because Tuesday, November 3 promises to be a stressful day. It's the last day of Mercury retrograde in Scorpio, and of course, Election Day. Try and keep yourself and others calm by talking about the things that bring you joy, and catching up with anyone you've been meaning to chat with for a while. You're a caring, emotional sign that gains strength by looking after loved ones. 

You're such a good caretaker, Cancer, that people often overlook the warrior in you. Sometimes you even hide in your crab shell so that your fierce side is hidden on purpose. The truth is that you're so loyal and protective that you would instantly go to bat to protect anyone you love. However, warrior planet Mars has been retrograde since September, dampening the fighter within. You may have been feeling as though your activist efforts have been for naught, or worried that you haven't been doing enough to keep up with your long-distance relatives. On Friday, November 13, Mars goes direct and ends its retrograde, so your inner fire will be renewed. Dive full force into fighting for what you believe in, including causes that matter to you and your most important relationships. The end of Mars retrograde also means that your sex life should flow more easily, giving you another reason to celebrate. 

One downside of worrying so much about those around you, Cancer, is that you sometimes forget to take care of yourself. Saturday, November 14 brings a new moon in fellow emotional water sign Scorpio. Draw a bath, light some candles, try aromatherapy, and focus only on your own inner thoughts. You may be surprised at how many emotions you've been repressing for the sake of keeping up appearances. It's time to feel them, so that you may eventually let them go.

Self-care works, and when adventurous Sagittarius season begins on Saturday, November 21, you may be inspired to take on a new project that's just for you. Like Sagittarius, you love to explore new places, and the way the pandemic has affected travel has been hard for you. However, this time of the year inspires you to be creative with your version of exploration, and you may decide to enroll in an online class, learn a new language, or pick up a satisfying hobby, such as sewing or painting. 

Saturday, November 21, is not all fun and games, though. Romance planet Venus enters obsessive Scorpio, and it may bring out your jealous side. We've all been cooped up for months, and it's understandable if you're having a hard time emotionally. This transit could make you feel a bit insecure and possessive, so try to implement self-care rather than lash out at partners or crushes based on paranoid hunches. 

Finally, on Monday, November 30, there is a full moon and lunar eclipse in chatty Gemini. You are ruled by the moon, Cancer, so eclipses tend to stress you out even more than other signs. This makes it even more important to avoid making any sudden moves. If you can, put your phone on airplane mode and indulge in your water sign nature with a hot bath. This too will pass, and you should never forget how strong you are. You have claws and armor, after all. See you next month.

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don't have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty. We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you're able to. If you can't, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
