The fruits of your labor are now realized. There is a feeling of empowerment and completion during this Moon Phase. The opportunity opens to recognize how far you’ve come in myriad aspects of your life. This is not a good time for new beginnings, but rather to reflect, to evaluate how you have been managing your time and what has been accomplished. Issues of authority may arise. This Moon Phase supports taking responsibility and tying up any unfinished business.
Lunar influences are most easily expressed when focused through Cancer, since the Moon is its ruler. With its huge pull, the Moon greatly influences the personality, the subconscious, and the emotions, molding instinctual behavior. When the Moon is in Cancer, strong emotions prevail over reason. Be cautious not to emotionally wound others or allow yourself to be wounded, as this is a particularly vulnerable time. In general, people will be passive, easy-going, sentimental, loving and nurturing. But beware: this maternal expression of caring is often expressed with food and it is tempting to over-indulge. Cancer is a nurturing sign and the most fertile sign of the zodiac, ruling the breasts and stomach. With the Moon in Cancer, it is a good time for creating life.
