Waxing Moon Half-lit in Cancer

Greeting Waxing Moon Half-lit (exact 210321 @0740 PDT) in Cancer


… nurture balance & new beginnings…


Today is Equinox and the beginning of a new astrological year (exact@0237). Happy Equinox! Happy New Year! Tomorrow we greet a half-lit Moon (Mar21 exact@0740). It is time of movement and growth; and time to pause, realign and find balance anew.


Energy is shifting (Sun & Venus newly in Aries + new astrol year) and momentum is building (waxing Moon & all planets direct). There’s new enthusiasm for tasks we may have been putting off, and both our patience and ability to concentrate increases (Mars-Saturn trine). Flows of new energy open us to greater ease, feelings of contentment, and a surge of pride in our accomplishments (Cancer Moon +Venus in Aries + Mars-Saturn trine). The rise in Firey energy brings renewed passion, fresh motivation, new opportunities, and an eagerness to get moving.


And the call to balance is also powerfully strong (Equinox, half-lit Moon, elemental balance, & upcoming Moon-full in Libra). At Moon half-lit it is time to pause, centre and re-group. Time to determine what to release and what to carry-forward into the new. Time to re-examine and hone our intentions. Time to align and affirm our plans.


Cancer Moon brings the gifts of sensitivity, tenderness, compassion, and nurturance. She is concerned with home, safety, emotions and boundaries; and turns our attention inward. Aries Sun brings passion, boldness, fearlessness and excitement. Aries is eager to blaze new trails, take risks, and fulfill needs and desires out in the world. One prefers side-routes, the other likes to just ram straight through. Together they invite/challenge us to weave a harmonious balance between stillness and action; caution and boldness; feeling and doing; inner reflection and outward expression.


It is time to expand, deepen, elevate and ‘quantum-ize’ our sense of balance. Time to pause and find strength and calm within. Time to reflect, hone our intentions, and revitalize our plans for action. Time to root, breathe, activate and flow. Time to move intentions into form.


Cancer Moon calls us to turn inward
Aries calls us to step forward


Flow with Water, rise with Fire
Activate all that inspires


Move sensitively and purposefully
strengthen intention-action unity


Time to nurture and nourish
all that you would have flourish


Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light


May your heart-felt intentions and your wise ways
flow into new & wondrous forms this Moon
