The Moon moves into Cancer, the sign of its domicile, and encourages us to return to our own sources of safety, nurturing, and care. What are the restorative conditions that allow you take off your armor, to soften, to be vulnerable, and to be held in the certainty that you are supported? Asking these questions may draw you back into your own memories, your own childhood; you may find yourself returning to the love and care you that received that continues to nourish your adult self. You may also find that there were ways in which you did not know this kind of care early in life. Allow yourself to feel whatever arises from the waters of your own origins, and know that you can create the kinds of stable attachments that you need in your life now even if they were not available to you early on. As the Moon moves through a sextile to Uranus, we may feel shaken, but it is a disruption that is allowing us to open up a new story and a new way of being in relation to our bodies and most basic needs. Mercury in Scorpio, now in the shadow of its retrograde, makes a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn—an aspect which Mercury will make twice more during its retrograde cycle. We are finding the words to speak truth to power, and it is through this process of coming to voice that we are moving into the final chapters of a cycle of transforming how we communicate that began January 18, 2019, when Mercury was conjunct Pluto. As Mercury moves through this upcoming retrograde, these are words or messages that we will continue to revisit and develop. We are diving into the shadows, encountering our own experiences of harm or powerlessness, and finding how to share those experiences—and in doing so, rewriting our own stories.
