Me or You Time?!
This quarter moon in Cancer is opposite Mars and Saturn, bringing competing demands. Cancer wants to snuggle up and be a home-body, curl up and watch TV, but Mars next to Saturn wants hard work and lots of it. To add to the feeling, Venus, Mercury and the Sun are all in action-focussed Aries. But Mercury has just gone Retro, wanting reflection time. How will you find your perfect balance of mooching about and following your own inner rhythm, while also meeting the deadlines and duties that persist in this hectic week before Easter?
As you try for some ‘me-time’, it might take a few goes before you actually get that conditioning treatment in your hair or face-mask on, and just as you’re about to take a five-minute nap in your dressing gown, there’s a knock on the door. What?! Move my car so the council can fix an emergency burst pipe! Well, Cancer is a water sign after all, so there might be some extra water flowing this week. It’s a good time for sentimental moments, but also to be mindful that emotional situations might escalate, needing attention straight away. Mercury Retro can help you and others slow down for better problem-solving than usual with a chance at healing misunderstandings.
The Qtr Moon in Cancer brings a pull toward connection, but Saturn, Mars and Aries might keep you away. Perhaps you’re dealing with an emergency and working long hours. Perhaps the emergency is within family or friends. Has there been conflict, separation and distance? Are you wondering how to bridge a gap? It’s a great week for reflecting deep and hard, and attempting new ways to relate. Saturn, Mars and Aries help with boundaries, and Cancer helps with closeness.
If sorting out priorities becomes a headache, Cancer says sit down for five minutes with a cup of tea, Saturn says write a to-do-list and Aries says okay, as long as it’s a quick one, not an encyclopedia. Mercury Retro says put tasks in the diary too, including both me-time and you-time. With all this planetary input, it could be a ‘yes!’ week, but ‘can do’ determination is needed.
