Cancer Crescent Moon
—May 5

Continuing yesterday’s brutal honesty toward authenticity and personal needs—today zooms in ever more closely into the truths toward what would appropriately fulfill you.

I get it—the idea of an ‘appropriate amount’ of fulfillment reads strangely, as though it doesn’t much make actual sense to our psyche…

Astrologer Dane Rudhyar transcribed this degree, this degree of what he claimed to be fulfillment, and shared that the idea of ‘an American dream’ of ‘plenty’ is also quite a familiar notion to most of us, as is the notions of ideal and abundance… though really, ultimately, it’s all just energy and with energy: more for you is more for me, and so on.

Of course, like everything—everything in balance.

The problems begin when good fortunes are overdone, overenjoyed, overbooked, overindulged, overspent, or overeaten and likewise…

This balance, as well, is something a Taurean sun knows something about—particularly toward matters of abundance and fulfillment… today the sun meets Uranus in conjunction within a degree of Taurus that associates itself to ‘inner poise’ and this degree simultaneously connects to today’s moon by sextile; the collaboration, then, between these two energies regard ‘braving the storm’ between any imbalances thereby or thereabouts.

True enjoyment comes from activity of the mind and exercise of the body; the two are ever united.❞
——Wilhelm von Humboldt
