Cancer Last Quarter Moon
October 6, 2023, 9:47am ET
Release What Weighs on Your Heart
At the Cancer Last Quarter Moon, let your feelings occupy your full attention. Allow time to simply feel your feelings, a radical act. When you dive into your sensitive emotions, you can reflect on what you need and release what weighs on your heart. This shedding reveals a reliable and unexpected source of inner emotional stability.
During Libra season, the Cancer Last Quarter Moon reminds you to notice the emotional undercurrents in your relationships. It’s easy to get caught up in the mental game of weighing past conversations and evaluating what seems fair. Yet the emotional repercussions of your relationship issues hold far more weight than anything you can say or think. Therefore, pause to understand what emotions you are unconsciously holding onto. If you are a natural empath, you may have even absorbed stuff that isn’t truly yours. Then visualize yourself letting go of whatever pins you to the past. The catharsis allows you to stand strong in the present moment.

Ride out mood swings and embrace a sense of levity as the Moon enters joyful Leo. Jump on an opportunity to socialize if it arises.
On October 8, you’ll be glad that you shed emotional baggage since anything that you haven’t dealt with promises to pop up like a gopher in the garden. With Mars squaring Pluto, frustration, disappointment, or resentment are all possible choices on the emotional menu. Instead, aim to direct powerful feelings into transformative avenues. Be completely honest about your feelings rather than boiling over. As with all emotionally intense situations, the core issue is something that has been stewing away in the depths for a while. As you excavate this central piece of information, you unpack the source of your ire and retrieve the key to relationship renewal.
