Waning Moon Half-lit in Cancer

Greeting Waning Moon Half-lit (exact @ 1739 PDT) in Cancer


… nurture, nourish, tend… 


At waning Moon it’s time to finish up, review, and sort through the makings, learnings and happenings of this cycle. Now half-lit we are called to pause, re-balance and re-align. Time to reflect on what has been gifted and released. Time to flow inward.


Moon in Cancer calls us to tune to our feelings and to the ocean of inner wisdom. She invites us to tend to our nests; nourish all that makes us feel ‘at home’; and come fully home to ourselves. Sun and Moon together bring the nurturing energies of the goddess of Love (Venus rules Libra) and the Spirit of the Great Mother (Cancer). It is a time to open to all that provides sustenance, and all that is soothing and supportive. A time for embracing the feminine.


There is some shifting of energy currently, with intensity easing on the one hand (planets in Cap now all direct & stellium nearing completion) and rising on another (same planets now in triple conjunction, 1st time in 4000 years). These and other alignments may test our commitments (Mars-Pluto grand cross) but they also bring highly creative energy and renewed clarity; help give us the courage to confront fears and make changes; and provide opportunities for inspiration and transformation. We continue to be blessed with energies for balance as well (Moon + ~½ way through Sun in Libra).


Time to flow with the Waters and time to feel into the lightness of Air. Time to delve into emotions where magick resides. Time to gain by letting go. Time to tend to home and expand within. Time to merge with all you hold sacred. Time to move more fully into the feminine deep.


Feelings flow from deep within
Time to embrace the feminine


Feel the waters caress and cleanse
you and All you so gently tend


Move like Crab from side to side
Find sweet balance in the tides


Time now to tend the heart and nest
Time to nourish, find peace, and rest


Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light


Wishing you gentle release, rich nourishment & sweet peace
at home in your heart this Moon
