If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it... The Moon in Cancer conjunct Venus

Swing. Forest Hills, Queens.

Swing. Forest Hills, Queens.

If an aspect happens while we’re sleeping, does it still impact our day?

The moon joined Venus at 12:05 this morning. I was in bed. When I woke up and saw that it happened, I almost didn’t write about it. But then I thought about the child who gives her allowance or lemonade-stand money to the family whose house has burned down. It’s not a top news priority. But maybe we need to hear about it, too.  

Two symbols of love, kindness and connection came together last night.

We’re soon back to the regular news cycle. With Uranus squaring the moon there’s tension. Our comfort is challenged by chaos. Will the chaos fuel our actions or will the comfort? Can they both have a say, even though that’s harder?

In the last hours of the Cancer moon today, look for signs of kindness today. Look for signs that you’re safe. And if you can help someone else, please do. The Leo sun shines a light on ego and pride or human dignity and love. Later the moon will enter Leo, too. Choose carefully what you want to reflect.
