The moon is VOC* from 5:25 a.m. to 8:26 a.m. ET.

Once the moon enters the sign of Cancer, we’re entering that “mine field” of the Cardinal Cross. The moon encounters confrontations over couple of days, first with Uranus (symbolizing disruptions, short-tempers), then Pluto (power struggles, lack of control) and Saturn (feelings of being short-changed).

Needless to say, this is a time to take care of yourself, especially if you’ve got Cancer, Aries, Capricorn or Libra in your horoscope. Give and take is important at this time and the awareness that compromise cannot be at the cost of losing your integrity. On the other hand, gripping tightly to something or someone who no longer “fits” you is simply not going to hold.

Family dinners may be fraught with disagreements or tension if you have trouble relinquishing control. The EFT practitioner Melinda Martin points out: “is it more important to be right or in a relationship?” Take a breath and get clear of what is more important to you at this place in time and in the relationship that causes stress.

Perspective increases in the late evening, so you might want to withdraw from the situation and sleep on it. Calmness may be restored if you can find a body of water to reflect on or take a bath.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Gemini, conversations can be particularly misunderstood; avoid important correspondence or phone calls. Great time to clean out old emails and tidy up your desktop.
