September 2019 Monthly Horoscope for Cancer
Cancer, it is important to note this month that you are aptly represented by a crab. You are most likely aware of this, though you may not always understand why you are represented as such. It will be more obvious as September begins, and the outside world is less comparable with your own personal world than usual.
Crabs have pretty excellent self-defense mechanisms, and so do you. These will come in handy for a bit while you get everything in order at work and at home. You will deal with your feelings by distraction and comfort until you are able to handle it about mid-September. It's good not to do anything during this time that will have repercussions later on as you won't want to deal with them at that point, and putting them off won't do you any favors. This includes accessing toxic relationships that have moments of comfort; it's simply not worth it.
Friends who seek you out will find you mostly scarce to be seen with the occasional moment of finding a good and healthy friend to distract you from yourself type of hang out, but halfway through said hangouts you might become too withdrawn to enjoy yourself and have to leave anyway. It might be uncomfortable to communicate your needs, especially as the Sun is still in Virgo and the main rhythm of communication feels constructive.
As September 2019 continues, it will be easier to not only communicate with your friends but to socialize in general. It will be less exhausting to be out and about as your downtime will be spent with more inner reflection than you've been able to do up to this point. Close friends you are comfortable with will find you to be light-hearted and funny, which means your wit and the sharp claws of your teasing will be out full force. Luckily communication will be top notch at this point, so be sure to listen if someone isn't cool with the way that you behave at this point. It's hard to think of hurting someone else's feelings, and it might be easier for you to ignore that you have, but it's important to face up to it and apologizes right away. You don't like being teased as much as you like teasing, so you can easily relate to where they stand. Most likely, though, your friends will understand and have complimentary senses of humor.
Work will fluctuate from making sense to making you feel like nothing is going your way. You will have some days that will go well as you put your head down and get work done, other days small things will bother you and make it hard to concentrate and make you prone to lashing out verbally, albeit quietly. You will want to hide when this happens, but you'll find hiding harder as the month continues.
Luckily, you will be changing with the placements, and you'll be able to handle those same small things much easier. When you have a good mood, people notice it like you're wearing gold; they envy your cheer and want to know where you got it. The attention may mute your shine, but don't let it take away the mood altogether.
As far as your soft inner core, you will find the first half of the month that you don't really tap into it as much as you normally would. You will be more likely to distract yourself and keep your feelings at arm's length. Hiding from yourself isn't natural for you, so you might find that your bad moods are more common and that little arguments with those close to you more frequent and often times stemming from your refusal to face issues or take responsibility for your mistakes.
After the switch to Libra, you will find that attending to neglected feelings and thoughts won't be as hard or intimidating as you may have suspected. It shouldn't be a tough turn around, as you are no stranger to your own sensitivities. Any resentment you've built up should be easy to let go of at this time, and it should be a breeze to patch up any sore spots with your loved ones. You will likely not be interested in bringing up past arguments and apologizing for them, so instead, you will find other ways to express your love and gratitude for them. It's best to focus on the positive at this time anyway so your natural inclination is best.
Altogether, you will find this month a good time to follow your instincts about self-care. It is possible to dip into unhealthy habits of the past, and that should be avoided. But largely you are capable of handling yourself and sorting out your inner affairs, even when it's just knowing when to do so or not.
