This Cancer Moon’s Giving You All the Feels

Today’s watery, Cancerian energy has us stuck in our emotions, for better or for worse. Rather than retreating, try to channel it creatively, or to make a point of reaching out to our loved ones to see where you can support them.

The Moon is Trine Venus at 2:40 AM

While we were sleeping, our Cancer moon formed a trine with Venus in Scorpio. This can be a very maternal aspect, so you may have had dreams about babies overnight. Or, less literally, you might have woken up feeling a strong urge to nurture and protect those around you—especially those going through a tough time right now.

Write down a list of those people and why you’re grateful they’re in your life. And make a point to check in with them today if possible.

The moon and Venus will amp up our charm and attractiveness today, and you’ll find you’re quite persuasive with those around you. Today would be a great time to go after a promotion, a loan, or a favor. You can also use this energy to stand up for others.

The Moon is Square Mars at 7:26 AM

This morning, when the moon forms a square with Mars in Aries, it can bring some anger to the surface. It will be incredibly important to remain aware of this so you don’t lose control of your temper and cause harm to those around you.

Be on guard for emotional attacks from others as well. You won’t help things by reacting in a rash or impulsive way. You also won’t be doing yourself any favors by bottling up these emotions. You’ll need to strike a balance today, perhaps by channeling that energy productively on your own. Physical activity or journaling could help here.

The Moon is Trine Neptune at 9:27 AM

Later this morning, the moon in emotional Cancer forms a trine aspect with Neptune in dreamy Pisces. All of this watery energy brings about a time of introspection and imagination. It would be a great time to focus on creative projects. Because of Neptune’s influence, working with film or video, or even working in front of a mirror, could spark some serious creativity.

This is also a good time to meet, or call in, a future partner. Your friends may also seek you out, either for support or advice. You’re happy to oblige both. In fact, you might feel like seeking out ways to support others, perhaps with charitable or humanitarian work, or using your art and influence to draw attention to a cause.

Your intuition is quite strong today, so pay attention to any psychic flashes or hits you might receive. It would be a great time to delve into a divination practice.

The Moon is Opposite Pluto at 7:13 PM

This evening, sweet emotional Cancer leans into her more protective and secretive side as she moves in opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. This placement can bring about abrupt and complex feelings of lack and inadequacy, and cause us to turn inward and try to bottle up our emotions, unable to express what’s going on.

It can also bring on feelings of wanting to hide or numb our feelings away. This placement can stir up relationship drama. Try to stay aware of these inclinations, and find a way to express yourself that’s uplifting and productive.
