Self-sabotage and distractions will attempt to thwart your goal. Analysis is favored, reevaluating all the various factors you are dealing with. Be deliberate in your thinking and effectively integrate your aims with the people in your immediate environment. This is a good time for organizing things. This Moon Phase is suited to synthesis: coming up with a practical plan for getting from point A to point B. Be flexible.
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.
