The Moon moves into your sector of play for a couple of days starting today, dear Cancer. That means it’s now in harmony with your sign, and this light and smooth transit is supportive.

Even so, Pluto is challenging today, and it’s tricky energy, particularly with close relationships. We can be guarded, or you might sense that someone is either holding back or trying to control or direct you. Of course, either way can be frustrating!

Those close to you can be very touchy and sensitive, and it can be easy for others to push your buttons. Focus on breaking out of old patterns of relating that haven’t been very successful in the past.

This kind of energy can sometimes bring out our tendency to repeat behaviors that don’t serve us well. Identify these so that you can change things up and work with the energy to learn more about problem areas.

Maintain high alert today because you and those around you are prone to hypersensitivity or dramatic reactions. Defensive behavior is likely while receptivity is low.

Slowing your response time enables you to be a counter-agent if you think someone else is acting aggressively or suspiciously.

Fortunately, you don’t have to fight fire with fire even if others do; you can consciously choose to remain emotionally centered, instead. Stop heated exchanges from getting hotter by using your watery compassion and thoughtfulness.

There is something about today’s playful lunar vibes that are getting your attention in a way that they aren’t normally able to do.

At most this is a brief attempt to remind you that life can’t be all work and no play, but it is the timing that gives today’s playful lunar vibes a louder voice.

This is partly because of a new awareness of a need for work/life balance and partly because the Moon is bringing a taste of things to come. The Moon might only be in a playful part of your chart for a few days, but it is giving you access to something a lot more permanent.

Today’s Quote: “Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know everything happens for a reason.”
