Thank you for your support. I am eternally grateful for our paths crossing, and I hope my work can warm your heart today.
The First Quarter (Action) Moon (Emotions) is in Cardinal Water, Cancer. Cancer is the part of the cycle that welcomes the summer solstice, and is commonly associated with the mother archetype. Cancer creates change through the exchange of emotions - the nurturing quality of the "crab" (the symbol for this sign) can be a haven for those going through difficult transitions. Cancer carries so much warmth and love deep within it's watery-core, it is here to provide empathy and understanding, but also, a shell of protection for itself and others seeking refuge. The Tarot card most closely associated with Cancer is The Chariot - willpower, determination, and spiritual transformation. I find the duality of Cancer so extraordinarily beautiful - strong, but soft; an empathetic warrior in-tune with the flow of the Universe.
The loyalty of Cancer is truly unlike any other - the people they love always come first, and they will stop at nothing to fiercely protect their "bloodline." The 4th House in Astrology is ruled by Cancer and the elements of our lives that it rules over: the home, family (especially our mother,) our roots + ancestors, tradition, our habits, and our emotional core. You may gain a lot of insight concerning your upbringing and the limiting habits you have picked up by studying your 4th house. Many emotional blocks can be discovered in this house because it is deeply personal, as this is a part of ourselves that only those who have lived with us have seen. This is where we become undone if we have not dealt with our early childhood pains, because this is where we will hold tightly, refusing to let go of the comfort this maternal house provides. Transmuting any residual pain from your 4th House will ultimately lead to emotional fulfillment, so it is certainly worth a bit of studying.
So, today, and into this weekend, emotions are high, revolutionary, and close to home. Tune into your empathic senses and be aware of the emotions you are picking up within yourself and others during these Cancer days. If your cup is feeling full, now would be a good time to share with others - your stories of battle, the heartache that resulted, and the transformation that occurred.
The Moon will enter Leo on 3.16.19 at 8:57 pm EST.
