“Real isn’t how you are made,’ said the Skin Horse. ‘It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.’
‘Does it hurt?’ asked the Rabbit.
‘Sometimes,’ said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. ‘When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.’
‘Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,’ he asked, ‘or bit by bit?’
‘It doesn’t happen all at once,’ said the Skin Horse. ‘You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
Margery Williams Bianco, The Velveteen Rabbit
If you like feeling needed, you’ll love today’s Cancer moon. You won’t feel unappreciated either. People enjoy the feeling of being protected and fussed over, and they will let you know how grateful they are for your concern. Of course, don’t forget to nourish yourself as well. Tonight, the moon sextiles Uranus, planet of surprises, and there are some in store. The aspect says they are nice, and they even contain opportunities. The catch is that you’ve got to look for them. Ideas and sudden perceptions or epiphanies are your clues.
Beautiful Venus angles toward dreamy Neptune today, which could see people indulging in romantic or financial fantasies. Mars continues its journey through Libra, though, encouraging a proactive stance regarding relationships and other interactions with those outside your circle of family and friends.
Moon in Cancer (it’s home sign) enters its waning gibbous phase tomorrow. Moon in Cancer intensifies the maternal feelings and all the feminine qualities, is reflected in the domestic and family affairs, as well as sharpens intuition, insight and imagination. It enhances the romantic moods, making people more sensitive, sentimental, prone to reverie, memories. There may be an irresistible urge to flip through photo albums, visit places from childhood, or to meet with parents. Relationships become more intimate and emotional content. Pronounced maternal instinct, the desire to protect and nurture.
At the same time, people are becoming more sensitive and touchier, more than ever, occur mood swings, whims. It is likely to come under strong external influence, as any manifestation of sympathy and participation is trust in people, to show them. People want to be treated gently, encouragingly; they tend to believe the promises. Usually at this time unable to solve the most difficult problems, well written poetry, there is a high mental capacity, but significantly enhanced sense of ownership, sometimes felt difficulties in money matters. It can also cause “cry for attention” behavior in some that you’re well-advised to ignore.
This position of the Moon can identify family problems that require greater attention.
