Moon in Cancer
After the buzzy activity spurred by the preceding Gemini moon, the Moon in Cancer invites us to hunker down at home. Take the time to check in with your nearest and dearest, whether they be human or furred. During this transit, there’s a tendency for our moods to get a bit sensitive—after all, Cancers are the feelers of the zodiac. Use this moon as an opportunity to focus on what truly nourishes you.
Current Moon Phase: We’re now into the heart of the first quarter moon—the perfect time to embark on something new. Whether you’re beginning a creative project, job, or resolution, the heavens are on your side. Start a new cycle, set those goals and plant those seeds! Want more daily insight?

Goddess Affirmation for the Day
More about this Goddess: Inanna, the great goddess of the Bronze Age, was honored as the Queen of Heaven. Some believed she was clothed with the stars. Her name translates as “Queen Moon”; the story of her descent and return from the underworld explains her connection to that celestial body. Inanna’s sister, Ereshkigal, was the goddess of death. One day, Inanna descended to the land of the dead to visit her sister. But instead of showing her hospitality, Ereshkigal killed her sister and hung her corpse on a stake. While Inanna was trapped beneath the earth, the moon disappeared from the night sky; all things ceased to grow. After three days, the water god obtained access to Inanna’s corpse. Upon her resurrection, she returned to the upper world, bringing the moon and all of life back with her. Like to know more? Try a Goddess Inspiration reading.
