The Cancer Moon makes some difficult oppositions today. Moon/Venus is not so bad - the need for security/hugs may be emphasized but not quite met because the desire for status/control runs counter to what’s needed. But the opposition to Saturn and Pluto can be quite tense, as restrictions suggest you won’t get what you need but there will be a dramatic intensification of those needs.
Pluto opposite the Moon suggests a fear of loss - the powerful surge that threatens to sweep away what you’ve been clinging to. But the opposition to Saturn says that you need to be self-sufficient. At this point in time, you are the only one who can provide for yourself. Note that Moon/Saturn is a strong parental signature; watch for Mother/Father issues to pop up.
The mood may swing from profoundly needy to hurt and helpless if you give others power over your feelings. Something bigger than you may indeed trigger a loss (or fear of loss) - focus on your inner security and self-care rather than fighting what you can’t control.
The Moon does make a couple of smooth trines. Moon/Mercury helps you put needs into words - the formless sense is given a voice. Identify what makes you feel safe, then allow it to expand as Moon/Neptune reminds you that it’s not personal. Yes, Neptune is transpersonal and while it can increase sensitivity, if you tune into the undercurrent you’ll realize that there’s something more/bigger out there. Maybe others feel as you do, or perhaps you can look beyond your immediate situation and see that the universe/higher power/bigger picture/glass of wine…whatever…reminds you to take a step back and release.
Exhale and look after yourself.
