Today the Moon is in Cancer, the sign of the root, the ancestor, the sideways moving crab. Our focus will be emotional, intuitive, oriented toward the home and family. Consider the boundaries of what you consider to be family. Is it your nuclear group? Your chosen friends and lovers? How does time impact your sense of family, as you move further from your home of origin in this lifetime. These questions are always relevant, but today offer gentle new insight on what is truly important.

At 9:55am the Moon trines Neptune, and immediately after, Venus trines Jupiter. The feel here is expansive and harmonious, inspired and intuitive. Neptune provides the stuff of fantasy, Jupiter sets fire to it. We’re able to dream big, feeling connected from our center as we pursue what’s next. Trust yourself, you know more than you give yourself credit for.

.

At 10:18am Venus squares off with Pluto, striking tension into our sense of love and harmony. Pluto is obsessive, tenacious, and forceful. This square brings up old discomfort we have around love and belonging, how we express ourselves in love, and how we stand up for our boundaries. It’s a rocky one, for sure, so keep your wits about you.

The Moon’s sextile to the Sun today helps us feel confident and energized, as the luminary of emotions is in tune with and sparked by our luminary of ego.

The Moon opposes Saturn and Pluto today, both retrograde in Capricorn. We are being reminded of old lessons around our sense of structure, our sense of order, and our sense of revolution. If things we thought we buried long ago bubble up to the surface today, examine them, sit with them. Not every narrative is neatly packed away after a door closes. There may be more work to be done in this arena.

In the evening the Moon squares Venus, and we may find ourselves out of joint with our feelings. This is a good time to spent time alone, not to isolate yourself, but to remind yourself that you can provide yourself with all that you need. You don’t need anyone to complete you.
