Cancer Crescent Moon
The full scope of anything, today, opens for expansion if you’re open to a certain level of flexibility… even the human spine is miraculously flexible.
Again, a Cancer moon isn’t typically offering much in regard to flexibility…
There’s a rigidity and heaviness about today and so receptivity is key, which lunarly responses through Cancer are familiar with—and emotional resiliency—a breathing in and out is necessary, however… flexibility.
Both Mercury and Venus, remember, are now very much within the degree of Gemini—a most flexible energy—and so thoughts and feelings alike could be much more cooperative, communicative, open-minded, and/or receptive to necessary changes, shifts, or adaptations and alternatives… still, any receptivity actually offered may experience an ultimate disconnect thereof: Gemini energies receive without emotion while Cancer energies receive only through emotion.
Astrologer Dane Rudhyar explains that, “in fact, it is by being receptive that we can truly be powerful and have a positive influence on those around us… a strong sense of determination and a desire to impress others [is inclined]—however, if this sense of strong determination does not come accompanied by the ability to compromise and listen, it will only create the potential for problems.”²
There may have to be a bit of compromise between emotional give-and-take and back-and-forth… strength of character, above all, is the backbone of everything, and however strong your determination is, or feels… you will get further if you bend.
