An astrological analysis of the week to help you make the most of the moment.
Let’s put kindness first. We’re in a haze of deep and sensitive feelings with the Sun and Venus, and soon Mercury, all in Cancer, a sign that brings us to our hearts, to our feelings, brings our thoughts to home, homeland, and protection, and even xenophobia on a bad day. We may need unusual amounts of time alone, or feel more easily bombarded by other people’s energy than usual. Mars, the activating planet, stirs the depths of our psyche, stirring up strange dreams, unfinished business, and nudging some monstrous crocodiles in the swamps of our collective psyche as it retrograded, or appeared to work backwards, in its own deep sign of Scorpio, since May 27.

Heather Roan Robbins believes how we respond to the moon's powerful influence is key to how we lead our life.

When we know today’s Moon sign, we know what to expect of the public mood and how to easily handle people. When we know the Moon we were born under, we have a new understanding of ourselves, what drives us, and what makes us feel at home.
