Welcome to the Mansion of the Moon, Cancer Season. The Moon is in its safe haven now but there are many rooms to explore as her phases fluctuate. The light falls differently in every room. And every room has a mirror!
We will follow the shifting moods of her reflections.
With the Sun in Cancer, our feelings influence our sense of Self so this is a time to be as aware as possible of your feelings. As you notice and Integrate, they will enrich the texture of life and deepen your experience.
So let's follow where the Moon goes this week as she wanders through her mansion.
Early Sunday morning she leaves heart-centered Leo and settles into Virgo. This room is tidy and organized to do tasks and crafts. Lists are satisfying and help sharpen the mind. Make your plans today. And use your hands to create something as a give-away. That brings healing.
Monday... Moonday... she gets input from Uranus in Taurus who suddenly inspires her from outer realms. New visions of the garden and how to best use resources light up. Plant something new and unusual.
Tuesday, passing through the last degrees of Virgo, she trines Pluto who has her recalling past lives and researching ancient family origins. Let vague memories arise and explore them. They hold the keys to the present.
Then she enters Libra's beautiful room, tastefully designed by Venus Aphrodite herself. Exquisite fabrics and beauty bring peace. Delight yourself by acquiring a gift suited to adorn you. Cancer, the Great Sacred Mother, reminds you to care for yourself.
Wednesday and Thursday she lingers in Libra's sweet atmosphere but receives a challenge that needs to be felt and understood. It may require self-assertion as Jupiter and Chiron are opposite in Aries.
With squares to Black Moon Lilith and Demeter together on one side and Pluto on the other, there may be themes of how patriarchal structures set up in the past are affecting your relationships now. Lilith and Demeter reveal how to fully mother yourself by accepting all your many facets. Both dark and light are necessary
Friday and Saturday the Moon enters Scorpio's den where she feels how watery undercurrents beneath her Mansion pull energy through her.
Just watch and feel. The lights are dimmed and nobody needs to see.
Saturday, resolution to the tensions resolve through higher, spiritual insight into the past and with the Sun joining Lilith and Demeter in a trine to Moon, a deeper relationship with the Great Sacred Mother, mother of all humanity, is likely.
I hope you enjoyed your tour of the Mansion of the Moon. Come back next week. She always loves the company of her Earth children!
