The Sun in Libra squares the moon in Cancer. The moon will rise at midnight in the south, peak at dawn and set at noon in the north. If you view the moon at midnight, the Sun will be positioned directly beneath your feet. Staring at the moon during this time will align you so that you are looking right out (approximately) along the forward path of Earth’s orbit around the Sun ^__^

The Last Quarter in Cancer draws us back to what we know, what is comfortable, heartwarmingly familiar, full of love. It also represents an important change point at which we have the opportunity to move about and explore new options. So wherever you go, enjoy the soul cuddles and the freedom it gives you to ponder which direction is better or best. This juncture may very well lead you away from one group to another, or perhaps back into the arms of a lover, or if you’re really lucky, into the highest seat: the kernel of Self.

Get in touch with old friends or family and notice how their company is like a mirror, an extraction, a catharsis. Speak with starry eyes of your life and plans, lay them out like cards. Those who know you best will truly listen and then offer, like steaming food in a banana leaf, precious grains of veracity. They will remind you of who you are, and in so doing, illuminate your needs.

Our needs at this time revolve inevitably around interpersonal relationships and, more specifically, those who make us feel at home – after all, the Moon is “at home” here in Cancer, the sign she rules. Choose your environment wisely. Seek shelter from uncertainty, for this is not where Cancer’s treasure is buried. Heed her wisdom now or risk a long, drawn-out social snafu replete with drama.

If I’m making this transition sound painless, I must tell you that others will push and pull your heartstrings willy-nilly with mellifluous voices. Only you know the contents of your feelings. Do not let anyone decide anything for you. More importantly, pay attention to who is speaking. Are you taking advice from people who do not really know you?

I see tears of joy in the presence of unconditional love. I see humans embracing, reminding each other of our value. I see tenderness, reunion. Step heartily, boldly back to that which we ignored in pursuit of other less emotive endeavors. You are free once again to work earnestly here – first in the fields, scribbling numbers and details, harvesting, sweating, hardly resting. Now we exhale in the realization that all of that was preparation for the sweetness of partnership, community, understanding.

Reach out to others and accept affection with an open heart. Bask in the glory of belly laughs and fantastical stories. Dance along the ocean’s edge!
