Coming home

When the Moon is in Cancer, people are benevolent, empathetic and sensitive. This energy is nurturing, compassionate, "maternal," protective, and sentimental. There is extra emphasis on caution, tradition, intuition, instinct, sympathy and satisfying deep emotional needs.

It is a good time to focus on your moods and impulses, to pay attention to the messages of your subconscious mind and to be aware of issues and matters at work in your emotional center.

It is also a good time to be aware of your security needs, to be in tune with family matters and family members, to indulge your "domestic interests," to take care of concerns that affect your home and private life, and to consider your current concerns in the light of history and tradition.

During stress with this energy, people are moody, unbalanced, resentful, blaming, fearful, compulsive, fretful, habit-bound, obsessive, complaining, depressed, insecure, touchy, smothering and self-pitying.

* The Moon in General -- Your Inner Self of Feelings, Emotions and Intuition ---> Welcome to your inner world -- In Astrology, The Moon represents our inner feelings, our emotions ... and our deep security needs. It reflects our basic habits, instincts and automatic reactions.

Moon in Cancer ---> Introduction -- The Moon travels completely around the Zodiac ... through all twelve signs every month -- a trip that lasts about 28.3 days each time. It makes this circle 13 times a year. It stays in each sign about 2 1/2 days. Everyone gets to enjoy a monthly Lunar homecoming as the Moon returns for a few days to the sign it occupied when they were born ... their Natal Moon sign.

* The Full Moon in Cancer -- Opposing the Sun in Capricorn -- Balancing Your Private and Public Lives ---> Family vs. Career ---> The Full Moon in Cancer opposing the Sun in Capricorn restates the classic dilemma of home vs. career, professional life vs. private life, public responsibilities vs. family responsibilities that we dealt with six months ago.

* The New Moon in Cancer -- Cancer Energy in the Creative Process ---> Going home again ---> Well, by now we could all use a little mothering. Thank Heaven there are Cancer people in the world wanting to take on the job and Cancer energy comes around on a regular basis.

When the New Moon is in Cancer ---> Home, family, feelings and your inner world ---> The symbolism of this New Moon brings the Moon (your emotional commitment, intuitive feelings, and private life interests) into union with the Sun (your personal ambitions, your outward focus, your self-image) and points your attention emphatically at "home life issues."
