12 OCTOBER 2017, CANCER
Two days ago Jupiter made its important once-a-year-move into a new zodiac sign, and the chemistry between this week’s 3rd Quarter Moon and Jupiter is strong. Jupiter has moved into beautiful Scorpio, and the Quarter Moon is in the heart of Cancer, both water signs. Whenever water signs are stimulated so too are emotions, and with the harmony possible between Scorpio and Cancer, this is a time when affection and fond connections have a good chance. Yet the Moon is sitting right opposite Pluto, planet of truth and the bare bones of a matter, which might stir up water under the bridge. Pluto represents the thoughts and feelings we have when the mask comes off; all those that don’t fit into normal social conversations. Even so, Venus and Mars are travelling happily together side-by-side, showing how the yin and yang of relationships, the dark and light of life and love are still able to join and flourish even if wounds and sensitivities arise. This Quarter Moon in Cancer makes positive alignments to the Nodes, helping nourish and support bonds into the future, or release those that have completely lost their resonance. Yet first a good dose of empathy and understanding might be needed to refresh intimacy after past difficulties so that the rapport, love and closeness of Cancer and Scorpio bring deeper blessings over the next 12 months of Jupiter’s profound passage through Scorpio.
