The holiday hype is coming at you full force, and you're feeling the pressure to be "on." Easy does it, Cancer. With the moon in Libra and your sensitive fourth house, you’ll be craving some downtime and a chill night at home. But just as you're plotting your perfect Netflix lineup, FOMO kicks in. A conflicting beam from charming Neptune in your adventurous ninth house nudges you to not completely shut out the world. Make a brief appearance at that cocktail gathering before you head home. Nail down any nebulous New Year's Eve plans instead of procrastinating and missing out on tickets. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, just choose one thing to tackle—you’ll feel better knowing at least something is handled.
Order in the Cancerian court? Today's meetup of the revitalizing Sun and clever Mercury lands in your sixth house of health and efficiency. You could get a burst of inspiration to clean up everything from a cluttered workspace to your eating habits. With Mercury retrograde, however, this isn't the best time to undertake any huge new projects. Rather than try to totally cut out flour and sugar (hello, it IS the holiday season), eat a healthy meal before hitting any parties so you're less prone to binge on sweets. Tackle ONE big item on your list instead of trying to finish every single thing before the holidays. By keeping it small and focused, you're far more likely to succeed.
Flirt alert! With the emo moon and lusty Mars canoodling in your passionate fifth house, you'll be one smooth-talking siren today. Just be conscious not to overwhelm the person you've got your eye on. Agitator Mars can make you come on stronger than you realize. Turn down the volume a couple of notches—on your temper, as well. Your emotional reactions could be swift, so ward them off by taking a deep breath or two!
Give your feelings some airtime, Cancer. Today, as the moon merges with outspoken Jupiter in your shout-it-from-the-rooftops fifth house, insist on transparency. There's a good chance your emotions will come rushing out before you can stop them, so just roll with it. Silver lining: With everything in the open, at least you don't have to pretend anymore. The fifth house also rules romance, and this cosmic lineup could dial up the flirtatious vibes. Take a chance and flirt back! If you're in a relationship, it's a great night for an adventurous date. Dress up and head somewhere festive; there will be no shortage of options.
Giving makes you glow from the inside out today. Communal Mercury and caring Venus unite in your sixth house of service. It's a great day to donate time or money in the spirit of the season. This social duo could bring an invitation to an A-list benefit. The sixth house rules wellness, and with this planetary pairing here, take a night off from holiday indulgences. Sip a seltzer between rum cocktails (or instead of them!). Head to yoga before you get all glammed up. And if you'd rather save your festive fuel for tomorrow, feel free to enjoy a guilt-free night in.
Happy, healthy weekend, Cancer! The moon will spend both days in Sagittarius and your wellness-minded sixth house, restoring order to life inside your Crab shell. This is your time to tie up loose ends and get the details nailed down. With savvy Mercury, aesthetic Venus and regimented Saturn also here, you've got the stamina to knock out almost all of your pre-holiday prep work. From artfully wrapping gifts to deep-cleaning your house to project-managing a family gathering, you can tackle it all. (Procrastination, begone!) Make a to-do list and break big jobs down into action steps—and don't forget to delegate! Saturday's galvanizing Sun-Uranus trine helps you approach big plans with an innovative spirit. A mentor or an expert could also lend eye-opening guidance. Book a consultation with a wellness coach or trainer to help you set 2018 fitness goals. Reach out to a seasoned pro in your industry for career guidance. Sunday's mellower balsamic moon (the phase right before a new moon) sounds the call for self-care. It's a good day to declutter, restock your fridge and handle those errands. Cue up an inspiring podcast and get those chores done!
