"Home wasn't a set house, or a single town on a map. It was wherever the people who loved you were, whenever you were together. Not a place, but a moment, and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you take with you for your entire life, wherever you may go."

-- Sarah Dessen

On November 7, the planet of luck and abundance kicks into retrograde motion for the first time while in the cardinal waters of Cancer. Just because you hear the word "retrograde", don’t assume the worst. Jupiter is very generous, after all, and while in retrograde has a tendency to exaggerate and bring even more to the table.

The only negative potential is if you don't want more in the area where Jupiter is affecting your horoscope. Of course, if you're struggling with a particular illness and Jupiter is connected to the affliction, you would not want that to grow. You may also not want spending to increase or overindulgence to get out of control. But for the most part, Jupiter retrogrades are generally auspicious for that part of your horoscope where Cancer rules. Cancer is the sign of what feels like home or nurturing to us.

This is a time to really stop, pause and reflect on what feels nurturing. Honor your own particular nesting instincts at this time. This may mean making work a secondary priority for the next five months, but the pay off is totally worth it. Jupiter does some of his best work in the sign of Cancer, so this should signify an overall feel-good time where we feel more connected to families and those people in our life who feel like family regardless of blood origin. We need to be with those who feed us emotionally, spiritually, mentally, etc. Honor your feelings, trust your gut and don't feel guilty for becoming a homebody. You won't be alone.
