Gemini/Cancer Balsamic Moon
—August 4

Astrologer Dane Rudhyar would say of today, “the show is over—now comes the hour of decision…”

However, as the moon moves somewhat laterally into Cancer this afternoon, there’s potential for the sentimentality of our mistakes and preferences to quite supremely, still laughably irrationally, take over—there’s potential, though, to attempt a shameless justification of e) all of the above… whatever might make you feel better, for now.

Of course this makes little actual sense…

Nor will this self-serving justification prove beneficial to you.

Be wary of the martyred motherly smothering inclinations that excuse ‘love’ from selfishness, or codependency.

Be wary of feeling as though ultra-sensitivity is some sort of superpower or virtue. It’ll crush you today.

Be wary of any preference toward victimhood… the universe doesn’t exactly care if you’re comfortable—we’re here to experience all of it… and move on, and forward—we’re not supposed to cling or linger or dwell.

Be wary, also, of excuses and emotion-based ‘reasoning’, as these will delight your ego, sure, but only guide you backward, or, with any luck—sideways.

If you’re already living your ideals—what is sideways offering you? Maybe a moment of reflection, or to experience sheer presence…

If you’re still struggling—you’re doing something wrong, and sideways will only keep you there… and, it’s likely your preferences that have perpetuated you struggle. Just a thought.

These new experiences you’re needing to experience—these will require more than your participation, they will demand your flexibility… and your willingness to reorient and realign yourself toward the silouette of this newer version of You.

Rudhyar would suggest, here, that “one argues with oneself, hoping to convince oneself that the old impulses are still legitimate.”

Further, “hesitancy and conflicting motives are still inevitable—the mind is very clever at not facing the consequences which follow from desires or even from restlessness… attempts at rationalization are experienced and should be understood.”

Crying is all right in its way while it lasts. But you have to stop sooner or later, and then you still have to decide what to do.❞
——C.S. Lewis
