Feeling a little scattered? Well, it’s no wonder. Over the next week, you’ll be put through a myriad of challenges as you navigate the opposing energies at play. While the double 5 numerology of this…
Our lady Luna rules the emotional realms
She tugs at our feelings, our sensitivities and instinctive reactions to the world around us. She also powers up our intuition, forming a pathway through the veil. This ancient Goddess of embodiment can also make the subtle landscape of our physical bodies rise and fall, feel soothed or inflamed, depending on how she calls to your uniqueness.
The Moon spends between 1-4 days at a time in a single zodiac sign.
Some folks are highly attuned to her celestial shifts, and some rarely feel them at all. But as a collective, the current Moon sign has a definite, though subtle influence on the energetic climate of our days. So alongside the Sun sign knowing what the current Moon sign is, will help you navigate her waters SO much more smoothly…
In today's collective horoscope the Moon moves through Cancer, the mystical and motherly sign of the crab.
As Cancer’s ruling planet, here, the Moon is at home.
Gentle Energies Abound
This is a soft and sensitive lunar transit but it can cause deep emotional ripples to be felt throughout the collective. Characterized by the gentle flux and flow of the phases of the Moon that we know so well, Cancer’s heady presence influence means that today, we‘re all likely to be highly affected by the moods and feelings of people around us.
Let Your Emotions Flow
If you’re more of a moonchild than most and are feeling this tide today, then try to sit with what you feel and let your emotions flow, rather than trying to rationalize what you feel (the rational is never a welcome guest under a Cancer Moon!) Like the other cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, and Capricorn) this strong-willed sign has a bite when its edges get frayed, so this lunation calls for self-care and self-awareness.
There's No Place Like Home
This transit also brings the hearth and home into prime position, and comfort, family and home-spun charm are likely to feel all-important today. For you, this could mean snuggly socks and a good book are on the agenda, or maybe cooking up a big old-fashioned soup and asking a friend round for tea is what you most need? Indulge your primary needs, your core comforts. There are many ways to do this - so put your well-being first, and let go of your “shoulds” today. It's time to nurture.
Some stargazers find they are physically affected by the Moon’s transit through Cancer. As ruler of the chest, breasts, diaphragm and stomach, you could find you’re feeling heightened sensitivity in these places. These areas are also strongly associated with nurturing, so be extra sure to show yourself deep care and acceptance under this Moon.
A Mixed Blessing
While a Cancer Moon can be highly sensitive and sensual, it can also lead to some passive aggressive tendancies as a result of overly-emotional feelings. And that's especially true for the cardinal signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.
