“That’s what people do who love you. They put their arms around you and love you when you’re not so lovable.” Deb Caletti
The Moon remains in “nesting” Cancer, all day. Knowing that we have a “place to call home,” and people around us who “have our back,” no matter what, is especially comforting for us now. This lunar position can also invoke our patriotism, or allegiance to our tribe – the “first chakra” issues. The Moon goes void-of-course in Cancer at 12:53 pm, and will remain so until it shifts into “self-expressive” Leo at 6:34 pm, on Sunday.
The Cancer Moon forms a square to “erratic” Uranus, late this morning, at 11:49 am. This could bring about some emotional vacillation, as well as a desire to “bust out of our routines.” We may also need to be flexible with matters on the home front, especially when things do not go as planned. Too, surrendering our expectations for how things are “supposed to be,” and going, instead, with what wants to show up in the moment, can be a very positive way to navigate this period. Uranus symbolizes the unexpected, change, taking new approaches, liberation, radical thinking, people who break or circumvent the rules, astrologers, inventors, electrical activity.
The Moon also forms an opposition to “tell it like it is” Pluto, 12:53 pm. While this more emotionally intense influence can lead us to “the truth,” we may want to refrain now from acting upon any of the burgeoning revelations, until we’ve at least had a chance to sit with them for a while. Kind of like when we take a cake out of the oven, we don’t want to cut it, while it’s still hot. Pluto symbolizes secrets, or what has been hidden, the domain of the subconscious, the basement of a house, plumbing, extremist views, obsessions, grave-diggers, miners, psychotherapists.
“Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.” Spock, Star Trek. Rest in peace, Leonard Nimoy. (March 26, 1931 – February 27, 2015)

Question for Today: Is there anything you’ve been wanting to say to a family member, but just haven’t said it yet? (This could also include those family members who have transitioned.) If so, what exactly would you like to say?
In the News: With the Moon in “security-driven” Cancer, and forming a fluid trine to “putting aside our differences” Neptune, the U.S. Congress finally passes “Stopgap Funding for Homeland Security,” late last night (wsj.com).
Earlier in the evening, the Cancer Moon was also square to Mars in “initiating” Aries. Squares are often synonymous with our needing to take prompt action. It is also the nature of “warrior” Mars to act swiftly on matters that are deemed necessary for our survival and well-being. Had Congress not acted on this measure by midnight, funding for Homeland Security was set to expire.
