Moon Scope; Breakout Time

April 26, 2023 Edition

Good afternoon, everyone. Welcome to this April 26, 2023 Edition of Moon Scope.

As April comes to an end, we find our waxing crescent moon that’s 6 1/2 days old in the astrological sign of Cancer, and honestly, we couldn’t ask for a better sign to have a moon placement because the Moon rules Cancer. The Moon is home in Cancer, which means the lunar energy will be at its strongest and most prominent.

In the chart I pulled at 9:55 this morning, the Moon was in the 1st house on Cancer’s 21st degree.

The waxing crescent phase is one that’s all about action, and as the Moon’s light brightens up the first house, “the self” comes into focus.

When we take Moon’s phase and the fact that Mars is within 5 degrees of the Moon into consideration, there’s an aggressive approach to some delicate energy here, and the message is to do whatever you have to do to be nurturing towards yourself.

Compassionate, passionate, nurturing, receptive, and sensitive are all words that describe our zodiac’s Crab, and because Cancer is in the 1st house instead of its natural home, the 4th, the attention shifts from home and family to ourselves personally. A lot of people give us shit and call us selfish when we put ourselves first, but taking care of ourselves isn’t selfish.

Most of us possess Cancer-like energy because I think we’re at our happiest when we’re surrounded by family and things that are familiar to us, but my interpretation of this alignment is that it’s time to step out of our comfort zones. It’s time to get away from the familiar and seek new unfamiliar people and experiences that are going to help us grow as individuals.

The crab is the symbol for Cancer, and crabs have a hard, impenetrable shell that protects everything soft and vulnerable underneath. At the first signs of danger, the crab may retreat back into its shell and rush off into the water where it feels safe.

With Mars at our side, it’s definitely not a time to retreat. We are being nudged to break out of our shells. Don’t worry about being vulnerable, and don’t worry about what people are going to think or say when they see the real you.
