Home is where you’re most comfortable. Spending time connecting with friends and family online or IRL will make you feel particularly cozy as the moon moves from Gemini to Cancer this morning. Embrace the vibe by snuggling up with a good book or TV show and some snacks.
You want to speak your mind today. Your tender heart is yearning to reveal your truest emotions now, but you might be afraid to express yourself and let your feelings be known. Don’t be shy. Let them come out.
However, you might feel unable to express yourself if others are talking over you and not letting you explain yourself in the conversation. Setting boundaries is important right now. Doing this will ensure that you’re treated correctly by those in your circle. Not only that, but it can allow you to take back your power and stand your ground when people try to push their views on you.
The Moon is void-of-course this morning until 8:30 AM PDT. Once in Cancer, the Moon trines the exalted Venus, creating a positive attitude that begins to create tangible positive progress. Inspiration from the forming Jupiter-Neptune conjunction begins to seep into our consciousness. While we begin to find blessings, we should be especially cautious about trying to push the river. The blessings of this atmosphere cannot be manipulated or somehow boosted in order to squeeze out more goodies. We will need to guard against both arrogance or false modesty. Grasping for more will stop the flow, while gratitude will help us to see more clearly what is being offered and appreciate what has already been laid before us.

Moth Spirit asks, what is guiding you right now? Are you in alignment with Spirit or pursuing something or someone with so much tenacity that it has become a compulsion or addiction? Are you so intoxicated by a potential relationship or opportunity that you can’t think straight? Hard work and dedication are virtues, and love of course is a beautiful thing.
However, when Moth Spirit appears, it is time to consider if you have gone over the edge in a relentless pursuit. Workaholism, overeating, perfectionism, or addiction to certainty or even to a person may be your current vice.
The form of your addiction does not matter so much as awareness of the consequences of remaining persistent when moderation is needed. Let go of your excessive energy by channeling it in more than one direction.
The fire burns hot, and you do not want to be engulfed by your passion to the exclusion of all the other pursuits that matter to you. Now is a time for surrender and radical acceptance so that your drive does not cause you to flee or to fight.
Spirit wants you to release your need for certainty and control so that you can relax into a more balanced way of using your Moth Spirit energy. Banish the “shoulds” and “musts” so that you can enjoy what is as you allow for what might be.
2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
4/9/2022 FIRST QUARTER MOON IN CANCER: Your feeling of safety is now related to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.
4/16/2022 FULL MOON IN LIBRA: You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things nice rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.
4/23/2022 LAST QUARTER MOON IN AQUARIUS: Your relationship with your emotions might be more complicated, because Moon in Aquarius has a strong need for emotional freedom. However, when you are in a group of people, it is easier for you to understand your feelings and free yourself from negative emotions such as fear, anger and jealousy.
4/30/2022 NEW MOON IN TAURUS: Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life.
