New Moon in Cancer
Mars into Cancer
Uranus Rx In Aries at 12 degrees
This is the sunshine and rainbows portion of the post. Isn’t she pretty as the sunshine warms her skin, the memories are wonderful and bring a sweet smile of remembrance.
Grand water trine with this new moon in Cancer, highlighting emo tides re: family, mothers, women, home and wherever Cancer lands in your natal chart.
Self-propulsion is active, though subtle and not necessarily evident as it is mostly happening in the intuitive, psychic channels. Chapters of life, stories and memories are washing ashore. . . tides slowly lapping or waves rolling and crashing. Both, most likely as it is with water ::: now you feel it, now you don’t ::: lunar equals fluctuations.
Strong struggle, diving deep into the well of psyche is evident with Pluto opposite in Capricorn – though shedding the skins of the past (Saturn) is supported by the buoyancy of emotional flow – in others words – we don’t get stuck in the quagmire, we flow like water.
Cardinal signs feel the tension, particularly those with planets at 16 degrees. Mercury Rx is riding the surf with New Moon (also in Cancer) indicating another turn inward, going quiet to deal with metamorphosis.
Jupiter in Cancer is hugely productive, abundant and optimistic. Free-wheeling touchie-feelie expansion of global family is waxing philosophical in the well of psyche.
We are globally connected – intellectually we get it. . . now with Jupes in Cancer, it finally begins to SINK IN on a much more profound level.
This is the Plutonic portion of the post, the seedy underbelly. Those of you who like a steady diet of sugar, feel free to move along.
Cancer rules the 4th, the conditions of the womb and the tomb, hence boney baby imagery. (Saturn is bones + aging, rules Capricorn which opposes Cancer)
Cancer house indicates either the mother or father – depends on who nurtures you. When Moon is in tough aspect, blocks or friction re: emotional energy forces change.
At new moon, Jupiter (in the sign ruled by Moon) moves to oppose Pluto and Square Uranus (nearing station) while conjunct (out of sign) Mars (on the decan of Uranus) is in Gemini. Feeling & thinking are in flux – bigtime. Mental and emotional change ups are imminent – concentration on metamorphosis – changing the outdated, outworn and useless into enlightened actions on the home front and public scene are highlighted.
Moon is the tidal sway of public opinion; Jupiter is expansive higher mind.
We are more psychic, open and vulnerable when water holds sway.
Recently at my Mom’s house I got a healthy dose of the idiot box. Before you karate kick me off my soapbox, keep in mind, I confess to loving my entertainment – I have Venus/Jupes in Leo square Neptuner after all. I am all for stereo sound, IMAX, more frames per second – all of it – toss rain on me like at Rocky Horror and it’s all good !
What I AM proposing is an inquiry into is . . .
Who is baby sitting the brainpan ?
Corporate Fat Cats looking to get fatter if you toss your noggin to the wolves in front of the boob tube 24/7. Soundbites (Merc Rx) of WHAT WE LACK, what we MUST HAVE to make it ALL BETTER dominate. Venus in Leo squares North Node in Scorpio.
The sugar pill placebo – big boobs, big lips, perfect hair and mutilated faces into our old age because beauty, youth and lying is perfection while vulnerability, aging, HONESTY and diverse humanity are liabilities ?
Jupiter (far reaching advertising, global comms) moves to oppose Pluto Rx in Capricorn and I call Bullshit.
For instance, yesterday someone was telling me all about the Cannibal Cop, discussing Ramirez kicking the bucket and why women write love letters to serial killers professing undying love and popping marriage proposals.
Now it is in my brainpan.
The creep show moved in to take residence in my mind. YICK.
It fascinates, but yick.
Yes, I KNOW manifestation, quantum physics, the hundredth monkey – eyes on the positive – but First we have to recognize the problem – SEE IT before we can CHANGE IT.
Ignoring the festering wound of our fucked up cultural obsession with slebs, fame, crime and wealth is obviously not working. We are lacking alright, but it is not STUFF we are lacking – we are burying ourselves in a mountain of stuff, AND what is worse the refuse of broken stuff and STILL WE ARE LACKING.
The boob tube, in fact all corporate owned media is slow insidious poison – take part and absorb a steady diet of LIES and LACK, Creeps and Freaks.
Mass (Pluto) Mainstream Media opposes JUPITER (in the sign of family).
Corporations and big Government focus on how we are uncomfortably different rather than focus on the ways we are comfortably SIMILAR.
How we are globally beautiful in our unified diversity.
Global corps walk hand in hand with greedy politicos over vast green mountains of money – trading our health and our planets health for immediate gratification and power.
We ALL NEED clean food, clean water, shelter, freedom, equality.
LOVE and ACCEPTANCE.
Moon is the tidal sway of public opinion – fluctuation and seeping IN.
GLOBAL PUBLIC = Earthkind…and yes this includes ALL critters…
New Moon/Sun & Mercury Rx trine North Node in Scorpio – CRITICAL THINK.
Think carefully – differentiate between NEEDS & WANTS.
Think about our planet.
SEE the beauty and truth in the mirror – and in the eyes of others.
Though we are different, we are ALL ONE.
Please note New Moon is a time of renewal and particularly good for spells involving emotional comforts, safety, home, family, land and living conditions.
Mercury Rx and Jupiter in residence makes quiet measures BIG, writing is favored.
I miss you – no cable, this is great stuff !
