The timing here is pretty accurate. I just exactly now logged on.

I'm working on it jane. Still a way to go to get over my Cancer shyness. The thing that always sent me hiding in the corner of rooms, hoping people would barely notice me, but just know I'm there feeling my presence. So center stage is another planet.

I noticed one thing that struck me in this illustration. Her upturned hand so confidently and gracefully ready to receive.
I'm absorbing this, since the 4th house Cancer Sun has a tendency to use body and limb for protection, and it doesn't even work! It's a reworking of attitude towards things coming at me. The old inner and outer rhumba.

This Cancer Moon understands what you are saying.

For me, my way out of the 'corner of the room' has been my Uranus in Leo, backed by my Aq rising shining upon it from across the horizon.

Uranus in Leo --> 'improv theatre', life as (I love 'performing' spontaneously, given the right setting)

At other times, I call upon my Saturn in Cap in 11H:

I put on my disciplined, business persona and stand in front of the crowd, prepared and confident.

I too need to learn to receive. That requires trust. A big hurdle for me.

I started writing more about the trust issue and by the end of it realized it will *no longer* be an issue for me, or certainly not in the way it has been in the past.

It is ~me~ I need to trust, henceforth.

I need to trust that going forth, I will choose to deal with trustworthy people.

Now, we are not omniscient, I acknowledge. BUT! In my case, I have to admit that in most of the flagrant cases where I was betrayed, I had 'seen it coming'. There had been red flags from the get-go. I *chose* to proceed despite.

I will no longer do that.

That should improve things significantly, especially in my relationships (thinking of my NN).

It is unfortunately a bit more difficult to achieve in the work world. I still have to figure that one out.

I'm thinking your JoopMoon in Sadge/8/9 might be a great duo for you to call upon... to both dig deep AND transcend, shoot out, extend yourself...

I think if Cancer Sun accepts the hand extended by JoopMoon, wow! watch out world! :-)

Then the three of them go join Pluto and Saturn on that Leo/5 stage... and they all climb to that MC in Cap... :-)

I'm sitting front row center, beaming already! :-)

Ooh! Love it!
I went for a bikeride tonight and spotted the back of an old Western-style saloon...it was off of the alley entrance.
I am thinking about staging a night of drama there. Just a little magic where we can all dress up in our finery like you in the lovely photo!
I'm going to inaugerate my local chapter of the Sequoia Adams Performance Project.
Do you like my idea? Any suggestions on how to recruit some dresser-uppers?

Oh, and the building is slated to be torn down and turned into condos. I am thinking it'd be a grand farewell.

Yes!! Word of mouth I think. Talk it up with enthusiasm. They love that.

Really good idea. Bittersweet.

Turned into condos? You have that problem there, too, eh? It's an insidious (IMO) trend here as well.
