Moon in Cancer - The Moon in Cancer deepens our feelings, our moods are stormy and vast, our hunger and desire to feed others sharpen. We protect and our own, nest in our cave, need to know we're safe. Hunger grows, but for more than food. This is a time to: water, plant, feed, nest, comfort, secure, dive deep into feelings. With the Moon in Cancer our feelings take the lead. Cancer encourages the wisdom rising out of our oceanic unconsciousness through moods and feelings. This transit concerns desires about a home, emotions, security, entertaining friends, cooking, security issues, nostalgia and the desire to nurture. Prepare a feast in your home ask your friends over, or do psychic work together. Women are emotionally and psychically sensitive at this time, and due to these strong emotions this is a 'crybaby' moon.
     Moon in Cancer brings heightened sensitivity, the desire to nurture, and the need to create a home. Because of the home orientation coming from a deep-seated need for security, there is a greater interest in food and its preparation. This can easily lead to self-indulgence so health-conscious women should be aware of the tendency to food binge. Cancer is the home of the moon, sensitive planet of emotions, so feelings are easily hurt, especially by personal criticism. Handle with care.
     Nostalgia reigns supreme. As the moon moves towards Leo (Friday, August 26th at noon time) it is a time of great personal warmth and friendship. Be careful to avoid conflict, as a grudge formed now will take a long time to heal. If you want your hair to grow quickly, have it cut in a Cancer Moon.  Moon in Cancer is the best time to work magick for home and domestic life. Healing rituals for ailments of the chest or stomach are also done during this period of time. Those born under a Cancer Moon can be wonderfully nurturing to our culture, body and soul when they feel safe. Early mother/home issues can be compounded into empathic understanding.

Woden's Day - Mercury Day - the Day of Communication and Connection .... there are minor magickal energies for spells to achieve clarity and to do rituals for honoring ancestors.
