Weekend Love Forecast – Lead-in To The Intense New Moon In Cancer

on a logFriday night we finish up the Gemini Moon with a square to Neptune and quincunx to Jupiter. An airy mood with options and an affinity for shenanigans… finds them. There’s an opportunity to shape the narrative through connection to the ideal, but there’s no will to settle down, at least not easily.

Saturday the Moon moves to Moon-ruled Cancer. It conjoins Mercury, now direct but still in its retrograde shadow. As the night wears on, the Moon moves into square with Chiron then Mars and into sextile with Uranus, all exact overnight. The details are jangling, but the way forward is to take them on. Start where you are and clear space for something new.

If you can’t go forward, back up. If you can’t back up, go forward. Juggle and jimmy your way into a fresh perspective and satisfaction arrives with it. If you wind up more stuck, get out and walk.

Sunday morning the Moon comes off the square to Mars and heads into trine with Neptune and opposition to Jupiter. We’ve faced the reordering of perspective from all sides; now the mood draws down inspiration and insight from the outside and from the divine. We can shape our home base, our port in the storm by embracing what settles our own private waters.

It’s personal. It’s inescapable; and everyone’s doing it. With Mercury squaring both Mars and Chiron, smart action is rough but productive. Challenge brings mastery quickly. It’s definitely a “measure twice, cut once” weekend, but when you’re done, you’re done. There may be frustration involved, but there’s also the ability to make the pieces fit.

It doesn’t take long to get the picture if you’re going to get it. If at first you don’t succeed, try something else and come back to it. Understanding has a way of trickling down through the cracks when you’re doing something else, maybe even something amusing, something titilating. Listen to your senses, but let them flow and move. They’ll come back with something pithy.

Venus in Gemini moves along in sextile with Mars, back into square with Neptune. The perfect option may not be available right now, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be. Keep your options open and keep an eye out. Don’t settle now, but don’t refuse something yummy because it’s not perfect. It’s still yummy.

The new moon takes place Monday afternoon. This weekend may feel like a bit of a lull emotionally, but it hums with activity just beyond the light. We’re integrating some of the bits and bobs we’ve collected without knowing exactly what we’ve stashed away as a whole. Metaphorically lay them out and see what you’ve got. Move them around… turn them over, sniff them, feel them, whack them on a hard surface. How do they make you feel?

What’s on your mind and in your heart? Those unintegrated bits are the making of something. The new moon on Monday can help us bring those fragments together, but take a look now. How do they feel? What does that make you want to do?

    Lately, I’ve been getting the urge to go back to my research projects. Am unsure about proceeding (now, later, ever). Thanks for those words I have quoted. I am going to work with them…

    Please note that Satori is clear this is ‘metaphorically’….just in case you’ve a hard surface, a particular person’s head in your vicinity, & a whack seems just the thing…. 😉

    • Hahaha! 😀 Thanks for the clarification!

      I have to go visit my parents tomorrow (Sunday) (yes, I know, choice of words: “have to”)…

      My father’s Pluto is at 28 Cancer, my mother’s at 25.

      They have recently announced they will be selling the family home which they custom-built themselves back in the Sixties and will be moving to a new Seniors Apartment Building being built. Or such is the plan (last time, their plan failed).

      Anyway, this will be an emotionally charged (lots of Cancer involved) transformation (Pluto) for them.

      Ours is a difficult relationship at the best of times, and everybody is always holding back from whacking someone’s head on a hard surface, so tomorrow I shall go with the word “metaphorically” in mind! 😀 (Thank you CR!)

  3. Sunday, yes lots of puzzle pieces
    Wish I could see inside of my brain
    Ready to set intentions , I find myself
    On the mild side of plans ,desperately
    Need faith in myself and humans outside my bubble Not sure, why I
    Make it so hard to review myself and
    Plans, It’s an ad nausea feel ,my life seems to go faster than lightening yet I feel like hot gum on a shoe,the sticky woman not putting my sentences together right.Watching life of Pi, the tiger
    Now that took courage, courage means doing what we are afraid of
    Needed to remind myself of how hard some have it.

  4. My heart’s doin good. I am lovin life and what I am doing in my personal life. Then a couple of days ago I started feeling selfish about that. For some reason, I feel the need to visualize the world I want to live in. When that hit, it really threw me for a loop de loo. I faced the chaotic mess. That is starting to parse out. Why I feel the need to do this I do not know. Cancer new moon in the ninth? Prep for planetary moves to Aquarius, water pouring for all?
