The Moon enters Cancer today at around 10 am PST. She is waning or dissolving back into herself, fading into the dark. She just moved past the Last Quarter in Gemini, her last distinct conflict with the Sun as she locks into that perfect hard angle to form herself half illuminated from Earth. Inherent in one half of her being is the sun’s light and the other half is dark causing the dichotomy, shall she act outwardly or look internally? Is it time to push through barriers or just let go and fade out? Gemini, in its duplicitous nature will give her lots of options as the Moon is at a crossroads. Shall we put another quarter in the jukebox and dance or head home accepting the cards we have been dealt and call it a night? After a bit of social Gemini conversation, Luna moves into home loving and nurturing Cancer. The Cancer Moon meets up with Neptune in Pisces who tells of tales of the sea, the waxing and waning of the tides, and the great abyss. Encouraging the Moon to allow the feelings to come up and fall away, and delve into the infinite vibration connecting us all. From the heels of the Pisces Full Moon, we have all been reminded of old wounding, where we feel less than or injured, and have an opportunity to heal and return to wholeness as we experience divine connection to everything and everyone in the universe.
Mars has made a sign change from Scorpio to Sagittarius. This shifts our drive from the deep waters of the soul to an adventurous passionate force igniting a thirst for knowledge and a desire to go on a quest. This quest may be physical or it can be a mental and embodied journey to find and expand our perceived world. The Moon in Cancer who loves security and the grounding roots of home is a little unsure of the Sagittarian who wants to leave the nest like a Gypsy, and contemplate and pontificate the meaning of life. Cancer is a watery emotional sign that like to feel safe and bring more pure emotion to our experience as the Martian desire emerges to begin to synthesize the worldly experience, beyond the personal and into the many and varied experiences of human existence. As we become aware of our deep rooted feelings, we may as well feel this shift towards moving beyond our boundaries, our known realities, inspired to travel new roads, seize the totality of the moment, and ride that new horse into a foreign land.
