Today’s Luna Guidance for Moon in Cancer
Moon is still in Cancer, you may feel moody and crabby and want to retreat into your shell. (The shadowy side of Cancer.)
Cancer is the archetypal mother energy within us all , don’t be alarmed if you feel the ‘dark mother’ take up residence.
The dark mother is when we swing to the opposite side of the ‘all giving nurturer’ – often in response to over-giving. She is the part of us that withdraws and can resemble the evil Disney sorceress, threatening to destroy all we have nurtured. This is the burnt-out mother who, should she dare to keep trying to nurture with nothing left to give, will inadvertently burn the food!
The degree to which we swing into this aspect during a lunar transit through Cancer indicates the degree to which we need to adjust the self-care scales in our favour…otherwise feelings of resentment will continue. The challenge with every sign is to love ourselves as we witness the shadow of every sign within us.
For whilst we have dominant signs according to the co-ordinates of our birth entry, we are each the sum of everything in existence so when we can see the light and shadow of every sign within us, we free ourselves of both judgement of others and dependency.
This is the path of the initiate who consciously journeys around the lunar wheel.
So, if you have found yourself feeling more like Oscar the Grouch, rather than Mother Theresa, concerned that your altruist has left the building and started making a petrol bomb, know that the best way to diffuse the dark within is to bring in the light of humour at your own dark side. This also makes it safe for those around you, indicating that you see and acknowledge your doppleganger (evil twin).
