I’ve had a very moon-themed week!
My progressed moon moved from Gemini to Cancer on Friday night at about the same time the transiting moon conjoined my natal moon in Cancer. Just a moment ago, I realized that the north node has been opposing my natal Mercury all week long.
The website “12andus” offers the following interpretation for the rare event:
“You have the opportunity to share ideas that will uplift others and build understanding. You also may yearn to connect with old friends or break out of your routines and explore new surroundings.
There is a significant transition underway though you are likely to keep yourself consumed with busy work and overlook key details. You run the risk of seeing only trees and not the forest. If you are in too much of a hurry, you may overlook key connections and opportunities.
Words spoken in haste or aggression may come back to haunt you at this time. You will have to revisit old issues and unresolved patterns around balancing intellect and emotions.
You are ready to expand your mind and embrace new knowledge and ideas though you may hesitate to challenge yourself to learn more about subjects you already feel you have mastered. What you are overlooking, however, are important opportunities to advance your knowledge. You don’t know what you don’t know, yet at this time unless you slow down and push yourself to go deeper, you will lack awareness of how much more you could possibly be learning.
Take the time to develop your ideas, plans and knowledge base deeper. Loose connections will not be as effective in the long run as relationships cultivated on a deeper level.”
The notion that I am undergoing a “significant transition” rings true with me because I have felt quite different this week. I’ve been eager to embrace something new, even I’m not sure what that is. I have been letting my instincts lead me around more than I usually do, and I believe that I have wandered into places where I am more likely to encounter opportunities. That’s probably a good thing.
This is typically a time of the year where I feel as if I’m stuck in a rut, but with all these interesting developments in my chart over the past week or so, I’m feeling quite the opposite. If it’s this transit that’s making me feel optimistic, or something else in my chart, I’ll take it. It’s been a long time coming, and after the year I’ve had, almost any change would be welcome. I’m not the one to scream “WORST YEAR EVER!” whenever the opportunity arises, but this has been a pretty shitty year. Still, it might actually be turning around for me.
In the words of RuPaul, I can’t wait to see how this turns out . . .
