The Moon continues to transit an introspective, play-it-safe sector of your chart all day, dear Cancer, and your need for security and comfort seems to take over.

While this transit typically inclines you to seek out either the company of familiar people or privacy and solitude, Mars and the North Node are joining forces in your sign today, stoking your courage to do something a little more daring.

Even so, it can be an excellent time for emotional renewal and moments spent with important memories. With the North Node in your sign this year, you’re connecting with your independence and personal courage, overcoming any existing fears of trusting your instincts or going it alone.

Today, connections may be made that point you in the right direction, whether it’s through a person, a chance meeting, information you come across, or a sudden realization.

You may be busy resetting relationships and remembering when to assert your authority and discipline. Some might call this “tough love,” but it’s probably wrong to think that love isn’t already tough.

Perhaps you are being overly self-critical about withholding your emotions, or you just don’t have much energy to give now. Of course, it’s difficult to renegotiate and reorganize habits and behaviors already set in motion.

Thankfully, you can be centered in your power without others being thrown off course or feeling unrecognized. As you teach, you learn.

There is a chance that tensions are starting to build and there is a need to buckle up, preparing for what could be the toughest seven days of 2019.

However, what you’re feeling is Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos going into battle for you, your personal truth and your ability to claim the life you were born to live.

As Mars moves through Cancer he is getting ready to oppose both Saturn and Pluto, with a chance to confront old barriers and roadblocks, especially those in your own mind. What lies on the other side is worth tightening your seatbelt, especially for just a few days.

Today’s Quote: “Negative results are just what I want. They’re just as valuable to me as positive results. I can never find the thing that does the job best until I find the ones that don’t.”
