Memorial ©Cucinell 2011

The moon enters Cancer at 2:19 am ET. You may start your morning with great expectations and a love of your surroundings.

As the day proceeds, you may encounter a large challenge (or the news may blare on about deficits and terrorism). It’s important to keep perspective and tackle the challenges you can.

Don’t overdo, if you’re worrying, find an outlet. Swim, find a body of water to stare at or a tranquil room; Monet’s waterlilies at MOMA can work on an off-hour. A quiet evening at home can soothe the spirit, or depending on your relationship with her, a conversation with mom (or a nurturing friend).
