The Moon is void-of-course from 8:42am until 9:17am. When the Moon is void, she wanders from one sign to the next, carrying no particular energy. Use this as a gentle reminder that you are still integrating the lessons of the New Moon, and, if you can, try to give yourself these few minutes to gather your thoughts before the day gets started.

At 9:17am the Moon enters Cancer, and as she wanes through the sign of the ancestral crab for the next two days, our hearts are attuned to themes of home, family, and the private self. Grow in understanding of your roots, both the ones you rhizomatically branch from, as well as the ones you’ve cultivated on your own. This is a psychic and gentle space. The Moon rules Cancer, she is comfortable here. Let your heart be warm. Breathe from the breast, from the stomach, the body parts Cancer rules.

Mercury, planet of speech, learning, play, and intellect, enters Cancer at 1:05pm, and for the next few weeks, we are speaking an emotional language. Mercury in Cancer will stimulate us all to think, speak, write, and learn in the realm of Cancer, that is, the realm of intuition, emotion, and powerful protection of precious things like family (chosen and otherwise counts), ancestry, and emotional history. A time of deepening our connection to our emotional thoughts, of going inward and grasping with the mind the contents of the heart.

At 5:36pm the Moon sparks a sextile to Uranus, planet of utopian innovation. How can we expand the expectations of our emotional give and take? What ways are we moving toward a utopia that supports our emotional wellbeing? Experiment today with new emotional manifestations, expressions, and explorations. This is how we grow, today.
