Cancer Balsamic Moon
—August 22

Today’s mood turns emotional—in fact, shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera refers to the Cancer balsamic moon as the moon even we “get out the scrapbooks and look through old pictures; we watch the movies that we first saw at crucial stages of our lives, and we talk about what we remember…”

These potentially emotional sentiments will likely feel even more so—or, contrarily, these otherwise emotional sentiments will become swallowed whole by any remaining residual resentments. Either way, your sentiments in either direction may become something of a reflection to what you are genuinely harboring within… any pretenses or phoniness will be quite obvious to you, and possibly to others.

Also, quite simply—Venus is connecting to the asteroid Ceres today by conjunction—which will likely also influence your awareness toward your inner balance, particularly between the abundance in/of things to do and needing done…

Through all the new realizations and impulses occurring—you will most probably feel an urge to accomplish something of true value, of real meaning… and the reflective need, then, for rest, retreat, and a release of emotional tensions… the last time Venus and Ceres were in conjunction was on April 3, 2021.

Lying to ourselves is more deeply ingrained than lying to others.❞

——Fyodor Dostoevsky
