safety, CARE, AND HOME

Today we are under a nostalgic, family-oriented Moon. Cancer is the natural ruler of the Moon which means the Cancer archetype drives the experience.

Whether you were born under a Cancer Moon or it’s just the Moon’s transit through the sign, you will notice the themes and experiences revolve around the same themes.

Through this roughly 2.5 day cycle that the Moon is in the sign of Cancer, we quite often experience many states of connection, digestion, emotional processing, and family interaction.

The Sun is how we “do” our lives, the tenacity, and fervor with which we push through to our destiny. Well then, what exactly does the Moon do? Keep reading below to find out how you would personalize and shape your life if you were born under a Cancer Moon or you were heavily influenced by the Moons transitions through the sign in any given Lunar cycle.

What is a person like with a Moon in Cancer?

A Moon in the sign of Cancer makes for an emotionally alert person, aware of the many subtle changes in someone’s mood or attitude. They are one of the most empathic Moon signs of the Zodiac because the sign of Cancer with the addition of the Moon plays off the same frequencies and influences.

Fully equipped Cancer Moons can deal with heavy doses of emotional processing, motivated and inclined to ask, “How are you feeling”? That question is not only directed at those they care deeply about but is directed inward– it’s something they ask themselves quite often.

Like an amazing well communicated Podcast, a Cancer Moon can have a whole ass conversation in their head about the way they feel, how others might be feeling, and how to get to the bottom of knowing– they want to literally process everything.

The curiosity of these people tends to be on the extreme side as they like to know who they are dealing with and how they should position themselves to feel about it. Like a crab, the ebb and flow, advance than retreat is protection. This delicate crab walks sideways to carefully craft and avoids pitfalls through uncomfortable situations.

How would a Moon in Cancer make their lives personal and unique?

You cannot rush me and you will not rush me! In the lives of Cancer Moon people are motivated to have the opportunity to think about how they want to feel. Running into impatience and situations of being rushed is not okay to these soft-bellied individuals. As a result, exposure of any vulnerable parts that have not yet been assigned an emotional understanding feels baffling and unsafe.

What does a Cancer Moon need to look out for?

When you are either born under this influence or are having a very Cancer day with the Moon’s transit, you can be sure there will be very physical signs and areas of the body that need attention.

  • Stomach- This area is the most sensitive part of an individual. Extreme sensitivity to foods, spice, and foods that encourage slow digestion is a trigger for prolonged discomfort.
  • Teeth- The teeth are sensitive to Cancer because the teeth represent the sign of Capricorn. Cancer and Capricorn are natural opposites of each other, valuing one another for their strength, but approaching life from a different door. We often lack what we have less of.

Are you hungry? Let me feed you!!

This combination always has something in the kitchen cooking. The joy of being home comes over them so much, that they take full advantage of what their home has to offer. Baking, frying foods, and comforting desserts feed the needs of the Soul and are never turned away.

The Moon & mothers influence

A Cancer Moon will have a common motherly influence– they felt loved and supported by a mother figure. The mom either is a very controlling and prominent figure in this person’s life or a positive nurturing figure.

In the worst cases, some people with this cancerian lunar influence, experience the loss of or lack of presence from their mother. Either way, it can either be too much or too little depending on a persons life experience.

What are the emotional effects of a Cancer Moon?

With time they open up. The first interactions can be surface because these people tend to be fiercely private. Opening up to someone they trust or has been in their lives for many years feels easier to participate in. They would never open their whole life story to someone they’ve just met at a party.

These lunar creatures affect and invoke the emotions of others and not even realize you are doing with it. Because the Moon represents mother, security, and comfort, when a person is around a Cancer Moon it becomes a cathartic experience. A person feels okay to let their guard down and receive advice from a wise information keeper– the holder of ancient knowledge and practice.

The spiritual meaning of this lunar influence

The spiritual connection a person will have is a deep understanding of all that happens to them because they have emotionally processed it to the fullest extent. Not an easy feat!

The crab offers guidance towards change in terms of whether we do or we don’t. This Moon wants you to grow and expand your emotional intelligence because it is the backbone of the macrocosm.

Self-care reminders when the Moon is in transit to Cancer

  • Taking a long hot shower or bath is a good way to reset the energy, bath/pool is preferred.
  • Take delight in eating seafood if you are not allergic, the flavor may be more intensified during this period.
  • Washing your hair cleanses the energies you are receptive to while out in the world. Washing those away during this period will feel revitalizing.
  • Cancer is a water sign and reminds us to drink plenty of water and other hydrating fluids.
  • Cry as much as you need/like, the desire will be immense or unexpected.
  • Light a burnt offering and tell someone you love them through a thoughtful and impromptu conversation. Vulnerability will be easier to lean into and illicit.

Closing thoughts

This Moon is one where you have high chances of understanding how the world works. If you are able to use your emotions as an intelligent center of knowledge, you will, as a result, reach higher states of happiness.

Today, we are blessed to be under the influence of a Taurian Moon- my natal signature, and secret Zodiacal crush! This is where the Moon has made its way around the “wheel” two and a half days at a sign to the sign of Taurus. Here, similar traits associated with a Taurus Sun are represented. However, it is also sprinkled with an emotional plot twist due to the Lunar influence.

The Sun is how we “do” our lives- the tenacity and fervor with which we push through to our destiny. Well then, what exactly does the Moon “do”? Keep reading below to find out how you personalize and shape your life if you are born under a Taurus Moon. This also applies to you if you are heavily influenced by the Moons transitions through the signs in any given Lunar cycle.

What makes this Moon the comfort and resource magnet? Taurus represents the physical manifestation of an idea, thought process, or urge. Bringing balance through feeling safe and secure with plenty of resources to go around is what feels most comfortable. When something is needed, this Taurus Moon says it out loud and somehow, it appears!

What does it mean to have a Taurus Moon?

A Moon in the sign of Taurus makes for a very comfortable, huggable, and lovable person. Connection through the five senses of taste, touch, smell, hearing, and sight is pertinent to healthy immune and nervous system function.

How food tastes and the effort expended to make rich and beautifully appealing fare is a trait that never goes unnoticed. A Taurus Moon KNOWS FOOD. They are crafty with meal preparation as well as incorporating healing ingredients. Liking to produce “just enough” to satisfy themselves and those they love. However on any given day this comfort loving Taurus may go to extremes to ensure that there will be “enough” because emotional connection to food is so important. Having “enough” is part of the Taurian archetype and food storing is one of the main intuitive practices for survival.

Are you ready to see a tactile person who is obsessed with diverse feelings and textures? Than look no further than a Taurus Moon! A Taurus Moon expects that the environment they inhabit contains a pleasing esthetic they deeply connect to- home is what feeds the Bull. What surrounds them is a testament to how beautiful they view life to be. Touch offers reflection on how a person wants to be touched by others. Its hard not to want an embrace or feel the subtle sensations caused by being in contact with another.

One common marker for a person with a Taurus Moon is possibly being a workaholic- not knowing when to say no. Large amounts of overtime can be expected. Taurus Moons have a rough time with change when it affects the bottom line– less willing to change.

How would a Taurus Moon make their lives personal and unique?

Can I have what I want forever and ever? A Moon in this sign thinks of a sustainable life in the largest sense of the word. They want so badly to provide the things they need on a continual basis and hold a strong desire for the Earth and environment to have this too. This includes those with Taurus influence- burgeoning pantries, freezers, and pavilions full of food to last months, even years into the future is a representation of sustaining. You can see this influence in their homes as well. Their spaces are often full of house plants and plenty of comfy places to rest your body.

Nature is a go-to in life as a Moon in Taurus connects deeply to the symphonic rhythm of the Earth and its natural cycles. Sitting in a meadow, staring off into space while enjoying the deepening of the body into the ground beneath them is a common, yet, grounding expression of this Moon.

You will find that these people are excessive foodies and willing to try anything that has the promise of rich undertones and satiating flavor. A long love affair and appreciation for slow cooking such as crock pots, baking, or fermenting is common. These activities remind the Taurean that flavor and connection comes from long relationships. Brilliant chefs with this expression find great success as others find deep comfort in the taste pallet of someone who emotionally connects with food.

What does a Taurus Moon need to look out for?

When you are born under this influence or are having a very bull-ish day with the Moon’s transit, you can be sure there will be very physical signs and area’s of the body that need attention.

• Knees- The knees are a sensitive part of not only a Sun in Taurus, but also a Moon in the sign. Besides the feet (Pisces), the knees are one of the most important functions of stability and mobility.
• Throat- Because Taurus represents the Throat Chakra or “energy center” at the throat. This area may be sensitive at times. This is a common occurrence when speaking your truth. Self confidence teeters on the edge of being “too real” and the risk of alienating ones self may fell overwhelming.

NO, you may NOT come over unannounced! Space + Privacy

These people value space and privacy to a fault! So it would only be natural that you couldn’t just pop over to their house for an impromptu meeting. Ultimately, time is preparation before you come over! They gently ensure everything is in its place. They prepare crackers , cheese, pour two glasses of wine, and await your arrival. Planned visits so hey are able to provide a nurturing space that feels good to them and to you. Spontaneity is intrusive and discombobulating- robbing this person of their energy and ability to be present.

The Moon & mothers influence

Noticing how important our mothers influence is over our lives is another topic of conversation. However, when you have a Moon in Taurus, you may have a certain type of relationship with your mother. She may be a source of financial influence and resources when your stacks are down. She may also be your “rock”. An emotional support person when the pitfalls of life feel like they’re too much to handle.

What are the emotional effects of a Taurus Moon?

Emotionally a Taurus Moon may be a little more detached than most because they are slower at processing their emotions. Retreating to take time to work through what has happened and how they feel about it is their only conclusion. Making a decision is rough for a Taurus Moon because of the slowness needed – think slow crockpot cooking. Decisions are careful thoughts and planning.

This person may seem slow to change certain unhealthy habits and associations initially. It wont take long for the realization to set in that a new course of action must be achieved.

The “bull in the china shop” is a common approach. When they haven’t had the time to pull back or process and they may feel backed into a corner. The bullish, pointy horned creature can break out to charge past what makes them feel stuck.

What is the spiritual meaning of a Moon in Taurus?

A Moon in Taurus will ultimately connect you to the deeper, yet more physical sense of what spirituality means. Connecting to physical totems, cycles and growth patterns of the Earth helps bring the ethereal realm into a spiritual one. These people will tend to believe in something higher. It may not be in God per se, but moreover what connects us universally will be of high importance. Practices that are tested and true are comfortable for grounded Taurus Moons.

Closing thoughts

Having a transit or a Natal Moon in Taurus can make them a sensual, grounded and connected individual. This person will be one who is talented, confident and resourceful in their own right. It is a time where we must celebrate where we are in our journey. Honor any practices that have to deal with the body.

Have a cosmically connected day! Stay tuned for more Moon information as I track its transits in my new Moon Series this month!

Many, many blessings to you all.

Mercury Retrograde Resources

Mercury Retrograde in GEMINI

Mercury retrograde 2021

Three days after the initial transit, (planetary placement) the planet Mercury resides in the sign of Gemini– Retrograde. In this article we dive into the activating origins of this Mercury Retrograde and explain how to stay out of dodge until it all blows over.

Lets get to business breaking down the energy of this three week period and how you can best serve yourself at this moment of introspection.


Firstly, how does it make you feel, any different? You’ll notice it more as you interact with others who seem off-balance.

Notice the traffic out there now that everyone is back to “normal”? If your reply is “crappy”, then I know we are on the same page. I’m sure of it and yes, people could have lost their minds…however, Gemini, Mercury and the 3rd house of the Zodiacal wheel (the “pie” in the sky any time a snapshot is taken) all rule communication, our mental capacity, transportation, and the exchange of ideas.

“pie in the sky” Astrology Wheel

On a positive note, it is the blaring reminder that you have things you need to finish. What area’s of your life need cleaning these days? Scarcity due to unchecked attitudes, assets, and relationship dynamics are influential flavors with the North Node of the Moon, the Sun, and Mercury all in the sign of Gemini. Exploring the 8th house of hidden affairs, taxes, conception, and transformation will result in mental breakthroughs and rude awakenings.


When any planet is in Retrograde, we can humbly accept the challenge of going within, or dive into a sea of crazy because the “world is conspiring” against you, despite your best efforts. Not true! The invitation is here to see a reflection of what you look like on the outside…sometimes. Ouch.

“Taking a step back when you’re met with unreasonable, sketchy behavior is good practice – re-treat with retro-grade.”

Pull out your post it notes! Writing these reminders down and placing them where you brush your teeth helps your manifestation results.

Retrograde “prescription”
  • I will finish what I started.
  • I will clear dirty corners of my life.
  • Retrograde prepares me for greatness


Never fear, this is not a time where everything in the world that could happen will. This is simply a period when you can expect unexpected things to happen– regular life stuff, right? This Retrograde begins May 29th, 2021, possibly felt more fully on the 30th. This activation period will last until June 22nd, 2021.


Collectively, the energy from our relationships will present its importance. Moreover, witnessing ourselves inside the dynamic of being connected to others will be puzzling. Are we confident we can trust them, or do they continually betray our trust?

Approaching new levels of consciousness involves breaking the old cycle of habits that keep you in repression. Who is it that you can no longer take directives from? Do you feel bold and ready enough to step out on your own authority? There is a shiny invitation waiting on your doorstep that include clear instructions– change your reality.


If you are/were in school, or learning a hot subject right now, do you value the teacher, institution or education received? Do you feel it was worth your hard work and are you better prepared for life? Encouragement is sent your way to make the best decisions you can, with the resources you have at your fingertips.

School sucks!

influential people

Do you feel relevant in this market we are in or do you feel pushed out by the change in patterns? This is a time for you to reassess where you stand in the communities you participate in. By communities I mean, fake friends, crappy DM’s, messages, and comments that do not boost who you are or what you do. Consider the vibration of the people you communicate with.

people on the move

Are you moving house or job right now? Running into frustrations can bring on unwanted thoughts of inadequacy, and helplessness. Limitations cannot keep you in your circumstances. In time, resigning paperwork and turning in necessary documents provide the fruits of all your labor. To finally get the hell out of dodge!

all poor souls who own a car

If you own a vehicle and have been putting off that oil change, repair, or tire buy, you may be in for a rude awakening. Its probably have been in your presence for a good week already. Vehicle repairs always show early of a retrograde period. Be sure to get to a mechanic and the possibility of getting dirty is inevitable if this is you find yourself car trouble.

People born with mercury in retrograde (no matter the sign)

Finding yourself quite balanced is a likely manifestation. Taking full stock of what you have to do and where to get the resources. Clarity is on the rise and its only a matter of time. Putting plans to paper surrounding your ideas has been a desire for years. The time to act is now!

the Gemini twins


  • Feeling airy, brain fog, and inability to communicate the way you wish.
  • Increase of issues surrounding travel and vehicles.
  • Reconsidering new strategies for schooling.
  • Redefining reality– the world as we know it looks different.


  • MEDITATION! Mental activity will feel wild for non-retrograde born people will be heavy, the mind is NOT your friend.
  • Yogic or restorative body movement at a fast pace or heated room.
  • Watching old movies that bring you joy.
  • Connecting with your kin and saying “what’s up”.


The conclusion is that Mercury retrograde should not keep you up at night, scared that all your electronics will blow up or that problems will arise constantly. Retrograde is a time of significant reflection and inward sight.

Staying to yourself, holding your tongue before you speak out, and deep conversations are high priorities of this “backward” feeling time. Be kind to yourself. If the thoughts do not surround how amazing and full of light you actually are, then you are encouraged to plug your ears.

Like with all things, this too shall pass!
