Tonight’s waning crescent moon will be home in the astrological sign of Cancer. Currently the moon is in the 5th house, and as this moon phase comes to an end, so are matters concerning short-term pleasure and creative projects.
In four more nights the moon will be new, that means right now, we should be thinking ahead. Guys and girls, perhaps you’ve been pursuing a recent attraction, but if it’s not going anywhere, it might be a good time to let it go and move on. And the same thing with creative projects. If you’ve been trying to get something going, be it in writing, blogging, or maybe fashion, maybe it’s time to rethink you’re current path and try a different outlet.
Now, don’t forget about how the universe works. When an avenue or door closes, another one will always open up, and the key here is the Sun’s position. Today, the Sun, which is the ruler and landlord of the 5th house has just crossed over into Virgo from Leo.
This gives us a little more direction and insight as to what’s going on here. Virgo, the sign representing the 6th house, deals with health and service.
A lot of people enjoy weight training, running, yoga, dieting, and these are all activities that fall under Virgo, and because most people get pleasure out of these activities, they fall under the 5th as well. The summer will soon be coming to an end, and with it will go the beach body, but who says we have train and take care of ourselves just for the summer?
Taking care of ourselves and our health should be an all year thing, and it believe me, it can be quite pleasurable.
What I’m doing here right now, and what many of you currently do, blogging, is an expression of creativity, one I find pleasure in, and one that’s a service to others.
Police, because of their service to the community, can be found in the 6th house. If you’ve been thinking about becoming a police officer, the time is right for you to do so. As the night of the new moon approaches, the universe is urging us to consider the pleasure and satisfaction that could come out of a career in service or just helping someone.
There will always be a need trainers, dieticians, teachers, coaches, law enforcement, firefighters, massage therapists, etc., and those are all areas where you can take something you find personal joy in and use it to be of service to help others.
The universe is opening the door for you to explore pleasure and creativity on a personal level, and when you figure all that out, think about how you can manifest those ideas in the realms of health and service. Think about it and prepare because like I said we only have four nights left in this current moon phase.
When the waxing crescent approaches, it will be time to put those plans in action!
Before I forget, there’s another issue that comes under the moon’s placement tonight in the 5th house. Children! Have you been thinking about having children. Yes, because the sun is the giver of life, procreation is a 5th house issue.
Maybe you’ve been thinking about exploring the possibility of midwifery, or becoming a doctor who delivers babies. With the moon in the 5th house, but on the cusp of the 6th, which is where it is at the moment, we have this crossover or connection between enjoying what’s fun, pleasurable, and creative for us, and then turning it into something that can be used as a service to others. Especially with the Sun entering Virgo.
For those who are curious, the sun will continue its movement through Leo until September 15th, astronomically.
But astrologically, when can officially say, “Happy Birthday Season!” to all the Virgos out there.
