23 OCTOBER 2016, CANCER
Quarter Moons often bring emotional high tides and this 3rd quarter Moon in Cancer is no different. It brings a great opportunity to catapult your growth through wise guidance that comes from your emotions. This is the second 3rd qtr moon in a row in watery emotional Cancer, an unusual occurrence, meaning that a month ago, we experienced a similar emotional opportunity, one which is working its way through to completion now. Cancer is a zodiac sign to do with nurturing, safety, home and belonging. How is your sense of security? Do you need more support in a certain area of your life? As you reach out for support you might be surprised to receive unexpected bounties from some, yet little from others. Scales are being weighed and decisions hang in the balance. Are you prepared to do what’s being asked of you in order to receive the support you need? Even though compromise might be necessary, Vesta, the goddess of the sacred flame is right next to this moon, showing it’s important not to compromise your deep inner core self or needs and values. Mercury is right next to the Sun in Libra squaring this moon, indicating it’s worth the effort to keep putting your best foot forward and not give up in your negotiations. Keeping a cool head in your communications is an effective approach even if emotions are strong. Respect and diplomacy, plus time for withdrawing and reflecting in between discussions, help with steering your way through choppy waters, until your wise knowing appears and you reach your oasis.
