The Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Cancer. While this is usually a time for more emotional spontaneity in your life, as the day advances, you’ll find energy a little heavy or just plain serious.

Perhaps it’s a duty you need to return to, and you may have thought it was already complete. Or, this may be about the return to a previous decision from a new perspective.

There can indeed be a change of mind or plans now as further information comes to your attention. It can feel as if you’re going backward or losing time now, but this is all part of a natural ebb and flow, so do what you can.

You may gain the respect of others today when you demonstrate your emotional self-sufficiency. Although you might enjoy the comfort of a familiar relationship, you need extra space to process your intense feelings now.

Your current behavior sends mixed messages to those closest to you who misinterpret your retreat as a rejection. Nothing could be further from the truth, but don’t assume anyone knows that.

Take the necessary time to explain that saying yes to yourself doesn’t mean you’re saying no to anyone else.

The Moon’s last visit to Cancer for the year is a valuable chance to get your personal bearings. But as is the case since Pluto returned to your relationship sector in 2008, their opposition can create some personal and/or relationship tension.

Yet two weeks before a three-year relationship journey is set to start, this is a valuable chance to expose any balance issues between your personal and relationship needs. This is something you won’t be able to avoid.
