Today is moonday with a waxing moon in the watery sign of Cancer, the perfect time to sow seeds. Any seeds -- garden seeds or seeds of hope, it doesn't matter. They will grow well if you plant them today, I'm almost certain.

The sign of Cancer rules the lungs and the digestive system. It is a restless time because our emotions come to the forefront now. Things that we've held deep inside seem to find their way out now and that's OK if you remember that sometimes it's better to allow our emotions their space rather than suppress them for the sake of control and normalcy. Think of the stress our bodies hold when we keep it in.
Both bronchial and digestive issues can be aggravated now but treatments are also more effective at this time. There is a known connection between emotional stress and asthma or indigestion, and many of us have experienced it. I know I have. I guess the best advice here is to allow it but don't go looking for it.
Cancer is a nurturing time when you want to feed people, to hold them, and make them feel warm and safe. And I dearly hope that is being accomplished this very moment.
