The Moon is in Cancer until Thursday, November 9, 2017 at 7:29 AM EST.
**NOTE -- I write only one (1) Daily Horoscope for all 12 Sun Signs. The Monthly, Yearly and Generational Horoscopes are tailored to each of the 12 Sun Signs.
Today we experience three (3) aspects to the Moon in Cancer. The Moon naturally rules the sign of Cancer and is quite comfortable here, in fact it is so comfortable that it doesn't mind spilling some family secrets, which really ought to be kept quiet. But that's Cancer for ya', who pretty much wears all emotions on their sleeves. You don't have to wonder how anyone feels during this Cancer Moon because they will tell you. While Cancer can absolutely keep a secret, they do have a problem with keeping 'family secrets' and have no problem busting on a family member and telling others about it. It's kind of strange because at the same time Cancer would take the rap for a family member and go to jail for them. Some may say Cancer energy, "Loves too much" so it comes out all wrong and a bit twisted. Cancer will be first one to go hatin' on a family member, but don't you do it!!! OKAY!
At the same time, we wake up to some Lovely energy as the Moon trines Venus, which feels a lot better than the opposition to Saturn that occurred yesterday. This trine makes us charming, pleasant and enjoyable to be around. People are just nice for no reason and you can feel it in the air. It also helps that the Moon is trine Jupiter, which e-x-p-a-n-d-s the influence of the Cancer Moon. It's about time we have some sweet energy to go with this Cancer Moon. Remember, Jupiter E-X-P-A-N-D-S whatever it touches giving this lunar influence optimism, friendliness and a feeling of confidence. The personality glows as well. The Moon will square Mars tonight at 10:39 PM EST as we are all heading to bed, but remember, the lunar aspects have a 12 - 14 hour 'orb of influence' so you may be feeling some crabbiness earlier than this time, BUT the earlier two trines may just be enough to keep you from pinching those you Love. The first two lunar aspects are our escape routes from this last aspect. Remember, every single day, there is always an escape hatch. ALWAYS! No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide an escape, so that you can stand up under it. ~I Corinthians 10:13
Let's also not forget that Venus makes her move into Scorpio today at 6:39 AM EST until December 1, 2017. Make certain you read your MONTHLY Horoscope and the monster-size write-up for Venus in Scorpio by clicking this link or the grpahic. If you have been keeping up with the November 2017 Astro Memes then you already knew this. Venus is in her detriment, which means it is out of place and it is 'inappropriate' energy. This energy has to really learn how to work with itself. Not only is Venus in its detriment, Mars is in its detriment as well. When a planet is in its detriment that means it has landed in the sign that is opposite to what it naturally rules. Venus naturally rules Taurus, which is Scorpio's opposite sign making it in its detriment. Mars is currently in Libra, which is Aries opposite sign. Mars naturally rules Aries, which makes Mars in Libra in its detriment. Mercury entered Sagittarius this past Sunday, November 5, 2017. Mercury is the natural ruler of Gemini, which is Sagittarius's opposite sign thereby making Mercury in its detriment. Mercury is also the natural ruler of Virgo, which means Mercury is also in its detriment when in the sign of Pisces. Even though we are currently experiencing three (3) planets in their detriment, meaning they are simply out of place, uncomfortable and have to learn how to act appropriately, it does not mean that we can't do it. Natally I have a Venus in Aries and a Moon in Capricorn. I had to learn how to use these two planets 'in their detriment'.
I will never forget a man whom I worked with at the railroad when I was 20 years old who told me I was like 'Eliza Doolittle' in Pygmalion, who is also the same character in 'My Fair Lady', which is the muscial based on the book 'Pygmalion' by George Bernard Shaw. I remember not knowing who or what he was talking about. I had never read the book, nor seen the musical or the movie with Audrey Hepburn. I automatically assumed he was complimenting me because he said, "My Fair Lady". Well silly me. It wasn't until years later when I realized he was criticizing me. Yet, he spoke some pretty accurate words. I hadn't started college until I was 27 years old and spent 8 years including 7 summers taking full loads as I gathered all my degrees including three (3) bachelors degrees, (1) doctorate, numerous certifications and one (1) post-doctorate. It wasn't until my college years that I started reading the complete works of many well-known authors and one being George Bernard Shaw. As my learning in Astrology grew, and my studies in college grew, I realized this man's words could not have been more accurate. The combination of my Venus in Aries and Moon in Capricorn pretty much made me 'Eliza Doolittle' in Pygmalion. Through the years I had taught myself through intellectual and spiritual study how to be and act 'proper'. I was most certainly 'out of place' and would say things 'out of place' and my mannerisms were certainly 'out of place'. It was the Truth. I just couldn't see it until later, but it was in fact, the Truth. 'Eliza Doolittle' had a hard time becoming who she was and in the end, she could not go back to her former self as much as she tried. She wanted to, but didn't want to. She knew too much now, making it impossible to go back there. She was now who she was, and she found Love with the man who showed her who she was, and who she could become. Like Cinderella it was inside her all along, it was just disguised on the outside due to circumstances when she was younger that were out of her control. But as an adult, she was in control of herself now because she learned how to do it. I used to think that if I ever saw that man again I would slap his face, but now after all these years I would probably thank him and shake his hand. I believe I am living proof of what you can do with detrimental plants. Detrimental planets are only as bad as they are unused, misused or abused. Do not fear the detrimental placement of planets in your Natal Chart, Solar Return or as they transit our charts throughout the year. Do not fear them, use them to your advantage.
