October 8: Getting Back Into Rhythm

October 8: Getting Back Into Rhythm

The moon enters Cancer at 8:45 a.m., and moon void of course ends

Thursday begins with a potent lunar shift into protective Cancer. The moon void of course also ends, so anything that we begin today has a better chance of taking root long term. Now that the moon is in its home sign, the mood changes from airy and sociable to receptive and deeply emotive. We may feel more insular and private today, and emotions may be strong. While the moon is in Cancer for the next two days, it’s a good time to rest and recharge, and tend to our bodily needs. Resetting our sleep schedules can be an excellent way to get back in rhythm with the moon.


The moon is square Chiron Rx at 9:49 p.m.

The day goes by quietly, until the emotive moon in Cancer forms an edgy square with Chiron in Aries at night. This square aspect may heighten raw feelings and reactions, as topics of inner wounding potentially become more prominent. We may be feeling especially vulnerable and sensitive now as the day comes to a close. Specific old patterns or memories may emerge that cause us to reflect on our healing journey and emotional well-being. We may also be feeling private and protective, which is the right timing, as all we may want to do is curl up in bed early to feel safe and warm.

The moon is sextile Venus at 11:16 p.m.

Later on, a sextile between the nurturing Cancer moon and Venus in care-giving Virgo adds a soothing, calming overnight mood. After a day of reflecting on our healing path, we can surrender to the supportive vibes that this aspect brings. The intuitive and emotive moon flows in harmony with Venus, bringing a considerate dimension to our relationships. The moon/Venus sextile may support late-night conversations, affectionate connections, or creative and inspiring dreamscapes. This aspect could also promote a night of deeper sleep, helping us feel grounded in our bodies.
