Today the moon is in Cancer, the sign she rules over. This is called the moon in her domicile. We can picture the moon comfortably resting in her own lunar palace, perfectly at home, nurturing and nourished by her ability to recharge in in the sign of the crab. Today is a beautiful day for connecting with those who are near and dear to your heart, as well as for finding time to find grounding in your own home, however that makes itself manifest to you.
In the afternoon, Mercury retrograde squares off with Jupiter in Sagittarius, which fills us with a combustible optimism. Mercury retrograde is focused on calling our attention to details we misplaced or forgot, but Jupiter wants to expand and push forward. There is a tension here, and we might feel concurrently cheerful and bossy, or a little too cocky. Be sure to tend to the reality of your life. The dream Jupiter describes is so enticing, but there is more work to be done before we get there.
In the evening the moon forms a harmonious trine with Neptune, planet of fog and dream. This is a lush, gorgeous aspect that amps up intuition, emotional sensitivity, and artistic desire. A perfect evening to settle in with your favorite art practice, my dears.
In the evening the moon in Cancer opposes Saturn in Capricorn, which may find us feeling withdrawn or unsure of where we stand in our personal relationships, as judgmental Saturn puts pressure on the moon, our emotional epicenter. If you find yourself casting about for answers from other people, remember that sometimes we need to find responses from within first, before we are ready to move forward with others.
