The weekly "Energy Updates" follow the transits of the moon, forecasting the upcoming energies and how to best work with them and make the most of them. Why bother with following the lunar cycle? The moon in astrology represents our feelings and emotions. It also is our subconscious. As one of the two luminaries, unlike the sun the moon does not generate its own light as a source, but reflects the light of the sun - the light of consciousness. Following the moon's dance with the sun each month as it waxes to full and wanes back to new again is an opportunity for us to release and renew monthly ourselves. The moon as it orbits earth moving through the signs of the zodiac also broadcasts whatever energies it interacts with down to us. Following the moon's transits as it encounters planets and moves through the signs is a valuable tool we can use for knowing what energetic weather to expect so we can plan appropriately and flow with the current rather than fighting against it.

Moon in Cancer: From Cancer, the moon is broadcasting the energies of the very sign it rules. Cancer has to do with home, nourishment, emotions, mother and the subconscious. Thursday and Friday could feel like an emotional roller-coaster as the moon moves through Cancer, ESPECIALLY for people with strong Cancer, such as Cancer rising, Cancer sun, and Cancer moon. (And even more so for Cancer moons because the moon rules the emotions.) You might feel very sensitive to the energies around you and the vibes coming off of other people. Due to heightened sensitivity, this day would be best in a calm, quiet environment that feels comfortable and safe. Cancer is about nurturing ourselves and tending to our personal needs and those of the home.
Daily Guide Friday April 12th through Tuesday April 16th:
FRI. 4/12: Moon in Cancer all day, then void-of-course at 25 degrees at 11:32 pm MST.
SAT. 4/13: The Moon enters Leo at 7:50 am MST. In Leo, the moon is broadcasting to us the confidence and creativity of fixed fire. Do you remember feeling pure love or pure passion/desire to do something or pure joy from running or playing or dancing or how good the attention felt and what pride you felt showing mom and dad some new artwork or gymnastics move? Are there things in your life you still feel that pure childlike joy, love and passion for? What about you is unique? What are your talents? What are your gifts to the world? Are you sharing them or ignoring them? If you have lost touch with those things in life you may acutely notice their absence with this two day long Leo moon over the weekend. Leo is also associated with the heart, with love, with creativity, romance, performance, charisma and generosity. If you find you have drifted away from those expressions of your soul's inherent talents that bring you pure joy, that bring a feeling of pride and generosity when you share them with others; if you feel you don't have anything to offer anyone would appreciate, or are afraid to be in the spotlight, or don't feel you deserve recognition for your gifts, this moon could feel uncomfortable as it will be reminding you that you are not expressing these gifts you carry that bring you joy to share. Maybe this is a good time to notice how fulfilled you are feeling in this area of life and start getting creative. The moon is in Leo all day Saturday and all day Sunday and Sunday night, not moving into Virgo until 10:13 am MST.
SUN 4/14: Moon in Leo all day
Monday 4/15 and Tuesday 4/16: in the morning, the moon is void-of-course, but enters Virgo at 10:13 am MST, and remains in Virgo through Tuesday. A Virgo moon supports us with focused and detailed work. Virgo likes a clean space as well. Discernment, critical thinking, and mastering the to-do list rule. The lower expression of Virgo comes out as criticism, so that is something to stay aware of during these days. Watch out for overthinking and the resulting anxiety.
Note: We have a full moon on deck, coming up on April 19th. The new moon was on April 5th at 15 degrees Aries. As the moon swam through the final degrees of Pisces at the end of the zodiac those few days prior to the new moon, many of us felt quite an intense undertow. How did the new moon and the following weekend feel for you? Did anything specific come up, whether an event in your life or something within? Did you experience any kind of reset, or set an intention or goal, whether completely consciously or not? It is time to revisit that with this full moon on April 19th at 29 degrees Libra. Its opposing Uranus in Taurus well, so it will be referring back to some events last fall. Beginning Tuesday is the ramp up to the full moon - you may feel restless and have issues sleeping. The best remedy is to connect with the energy of the earth. Burning off excess energy by doing outdoor activities, getting hands in potting soil, or long meditative walks in the woods all work. Remember to stay hydrated and get plenty of sleep.
