If you’ve been working yourself to the bone, it all seems worth it once you get paid, but all work and no play can make Cancer even crabbier than usual. Fortunately, Mercury retrograde in your sixth house of work and reputation slow the flow of urgent things to get done. On an even lighter note, since Mercury is retrograde in jovial and social Sagittarius, it seems that even a serious talk could turn out to be fun or at the least, it will be good for a few laughs. Jovial planets and the holiday season just seem to go together—making spirits light and bright. The Full Moon in your second house, also known as Gemini, will occur on December 3, the same day that Mercury goes retrograde, so try to clear up any year-end financial paperwork before the first week of December. If you have a partner, get him/her on board with your plan so you can enjoy the holiday season sans stress.
