May 23rd – May 29th, 2017
Most of us are probably behaving rather selfishly right now. Harmonious Venus challenged in headstrong Aries, Warrior Mars motivating the independent spirit of Gemini and Pluto sitting at the head of the table demanding its rights for power and respect –preaching seemingly indisputable ‘truths’. Saturn under Sagittarius is in here too insisting it has exclusive handle on what is and isn’t morally correct. I guess we’ll figure out soon enough where this kind of attitude will take us. Wherever we end up we will have accumulated a stack of lessons learned.
Still wanting want you want this week through hell or high water Cancer? Maybe – Although, it could get a touch confusing now. It is more like you are refusing to budge just because. Sure you may offer a convincing rational explanation (to yourself or others) yet, it probably isn’t on par with what you really think/feel deep down.
As Venus and Pluto press on what already looks like a disconcerted mindset close relationship will likely take the brunt of your, ahem, moods. On the same day that Venus and Pluto perform the press the New Moon in Gemini takes shape. While the New Moon doesn’t necessarily create the same emotional pressure as Full Moons (specifically the one in Scorpio a few weeks ago) perhaps remnants of what went down still linger. So, is this a control issue Cancer? If not, what’s driving you? You’ll have to get in in touch with ‘the’ motivating factor at some point. And it probably doesn’t reside in the land of common sense logic.
That said, as the New Moon energy sets in, on the 25th, this would be a great time to pull back instead of push out. It may also be of benefit to consider that old patterns (as far back as childhood) may be playing out – not something easily recognized nor dis-assembled. If you can grab hold of that psychological structure you will be more likely to regain what ‘control’ you think you’ve lost. Needless to say it will require a little time to your self.
Side-note: Mars’ opposition to Saturn on the 29th suggests the necessity of planning your next moves, which may entail a complete re-shape of your current routine.
