Cancer and the Pluto Exit
From Sagittarius

Cancer-Sagittarius. The Family of Man.

A magnificent full moon shone on me last night next to Mars. My god in heaven it was beautiful. It's not happenstance, I don't think, that the Sagittarius-Cancer lunation opposed Jupiter at the end of the Pluto transit, and that Mars in Cancer is seeing Pluto out.
I'm all Cancer-Sagittarius even to the point of having a Sun-Moon inconjunct 3* apart. I know it well.
The family of man. Cancer equals family and Sagittarius is the foreign world. When these two combine a feeling of intimacy with most everyone is the result. Safe and secure in the universe. I've traveled all over the planet and everywhere I've gone I've felt at home. I adopt the dress and customs, eat the food, drink the water, and settle in. I feel a natural familiarity and I'm accepted by the natives in every nation.
It seems that the seeds of this cross-pollination are sprouting, and I get the feeling that in the next 248 years, some breakdown in tribal barrier might occur, begun awhile ago when global travel and exchange started developing to the extent they've arrived at now.

Emotion and God. It was irritating but the religious extremism of the Pluto transit brought to light the underlying emotional need for spiritual expression in humans. Sagittarius with Cancer has a natural intimacy with the deity and I think people realize the need for that now. You might think all of this would turn people against religion but I doubt that will be the final result. I tend to think a re-connection is in the works based on personal feeling. In a curious back street way, the divisions have actually united the world spiritually. Cancer-Sagittarius is the epitome of spiritual comfort.
Enthusiasm. Cancer and Sagittarius combine to lift the spirits from the visceral level in a continous bubbling extrusion. I think I emerged from the womb with poms-poms in hand ready to jump, shout and cheer. I had to wait until I was a high school freshman to literally get on the field, though. None too soon.
Faith. Cancer is instinct and Sagittarius is the omnipotent. The two combine to create trust that is not manufactured and not reasoned with, but simply felt. Through these years, after the conflict in the cradle (Cancer) of civilization, people expressed terror and fear of worldwide war and suffering. Now as the transit is ending, the Iraq War is winding down on its own, WWIII has disappeared from the horizon, and underneath the terror, some faith in universal workings has developed. The needed revolution in the Islamic world has been set in motion and all the religions recognize the need to modernize and nurture in keeping with current times. I feel a calm in the air with the knowledge that things do, in fact, work themselves out. Pure Sagittarius.
It will take a few years to sort it out, but when Pluto finally makes its last retrograde and goes direct fully into Capricorn in 2009, Mars again is in Cancer. Of course the daily agonies always continue as usual within the larger framework, but then again, it's a matter of philosophy. Because I am so Cancer-Sagittarian I believe there is a larger wheel leading humanity in progressive evolution. Something somewhere is good.

Cancer and Pluto's exit.

Mars rx opp and on the cusp of Gemini.

Here is something i am pondering - an echo heard among acquaintances this past week. Exes, men friends, old (male) partnerships coming back to women to say something has happened to me made me aware of (the old whatever) and how i failed to act correctly. Can we talk about this? Not a few, more than a dozen.

RC was here for a short visit and i consulted him...not getting that it was only men yet. Had he had anyone from the past come by to make amends? He ran his hand over his face, that is so strange that you should ask. No, not someone else, but me. I have been thinking about someone, an old partner that i did not treat well, have even written the letter, have not sent it yet.

It makes my heart flutter a little.

Thoughts O Wise 1?

HA HA HA!!!!! The Sagittarius entrepreneur! Just in time. I'm in dire straits, but then I always am.

Will comment in a sec on the other. I got a powerful feeling from the moon last night and it's assimilating now.

Amends. Repairs. Saturn in Virgo. Much more to come as the excitement of sagittarius goes. Resolution. The end of the transit. Tying up loose ends.

Especially with Mars retro in Cancer and the full moon. Going back to past intimacies. All designed to give ourselves emotional comfort. Heal hurts.

For you, it squares your all-important Libra stellium and when you want to I can go into the overall theme in your life around relationships, how it ties into your self-expression, and what the intended result is. Easy to see.

Start. Saturn in Libra. The never-ending difficulty in establishing the right 1on1. It has to be done so you can ultimately leave relationships on their own.

Being a Cancer I know this one well. Cancer is the most forgiving of the signs because they know so well how we hurt one another. Nothing we can do. It's a natural part of intimacy. You can see how much Cancers put up with and why they are so understanding. But the real reason they forgive is because they need the intimate bond to be kept intact. If we want emotional comfort from others, we have to allow for moods, misbehaviors, abuses, rejections, all those things that serve to keep people's separations and identities also intact.

It just hurts, one way or another. But to Cancer that's no big deal.

The Mars retro going back to Gemini and healing words, affects this country especially with her Cancer stellium, so we all feel it.

We are all reeling from the hurts. Guilt over the Iraqis. The ME hurting us with their oily royalty. The government hurting the people. The people screaming invectives in Blogland, hurting everyone and everything. The horrible barrage of insult. It's relatively insane and now people are tired of the Sadge recklessness.

In the end, the hurts will serve to help the people grow up in Capricorn and stop some of this uncontrolled nonsense.

exactly my sense of it and what sent my heart fluttering.

Well we have been wondering for a long time what the message of Mars Rx would be and this seems to be part of it.

We really are free, aren't we St.B? Spending Christmas Eve doing exactly what we want to do. Sometimes I like life.

My heart would flutter too if the whining would stop. My mother stopped my whining in its tracks when I was a child so my Aries could develop. I still could use the tempering of Capricorn, though.

This is the whole cycle. When Pluto was in Cancer conjunct the stellium, the parental New Deal came along with avuncular Roosevelt. Now we have the opposition with the lead-up... the most immature president (Cancer) known to humankind. That should teach us.

I'm very interested in the cycle of conj. and opp. in terms of the Uranus in Aries again.

I stopped reading the blogs quite awhile ago and it was wonderful. I do, however, love the kids' movie reviews. They are accurate and non-sentimental. I can't wait for them to emerge in the coming years. I especially noticed how they don't fall for the pseudo-emotional traps.

An angel just visited my account! Yes. Real money. And me, the one who was going to stop celebrating all traditional holidays. The best laid plans of this mouse have been thwarted once again.

Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!

All in all a nice life.
Friends call more at this season. Just off the phone with one of my beloved young kid friends. They grow so fast it is hard to keep up.

Shall we twirl.
There is lots to celebrate!

We can have non-traditional celebration- we Uranian types like them.

We never celebrated a traditional Christmas.

Yessss!!!!!!!

May I have this dance. Let me fill your card.

There is always so much to celebrate and reason to do it. We shall twirl and twirl and twirl...and glide, and kick, and leap, and jump, and fly, and REJOICE!!!!!

Frienship, man.

Yesssss!!!!!!!!

A nontraditional Christmas. My mother was adamantly against the traditional and my father wasn't exactly there. That's reason enough to celebrate. Freedom and imagination.

Only Saggies can understand this madness. The urge to reach the outer limits of the universe.

It's really interesting. I used to like the solemn hushed candlelit moment of supplication but I'm not quite in the mood for that now. Subdued spirit or was it cramped spirit?

And Handel's Messiah, man. Lots of high-pitched shrieking there. Gave me a headache.

OMG!!!!! My onions are burning!!!!

jeez, i guess the twirling needs to stop while you cook. Myrtle isn't coming to dinner is she?

Myrtle??? No she's in Bali visiting her ex. He can't seem to get along without her. She's bringing me back some batik suits for my upcoming performances.

The twirling needs to stop only momentarily. I cook things that don't have to be hovered over. I like my friends that way too. Simmering on their own, ready to nourish me.

Speaking of simmering and nourishment....

You are unpredictable, Sticky. Everytime I think I have you figured out you do something wild, true to your Aquarius rising. With Uranus in the 1st now, no wonder. It's such a great combo with Uranus in Cancer. A lot like my father with 3 planets in Aquarius and moon in Cancer. He was the one who cared for me when I was sick. I bet we remember that all our lives. I also can't get that damned doctor with his needle erased from memory. But maybe it helped me survive. Who knows?

Winston might drop by and Aunt Jenny sends her love. She's extremely busy, since, unlike us, she likes a traditional holiday, so she's cooking up a storm. She took some cooking classes when she turned 85 and she's always experimenting. You must try some of her dishes.

People tell me this, i can never figure it out.

One of my favorite things as a child was hanging upside down knees bent over tree limbs...probably explains it- nudged something loose.

So that's it! I knew there was an explanation.

This whole thing is wild, and so darned creative. And your NN Pisces. You are the one who can travel with me in my fantasy world exactly as if it were real. Well it is.

Much as i'd love to see them, visit, my peepers are being overcome by gravity. RC is a fine friend we love to talk. He keeps different hours, genteel, up 'til the wee hours, we did not eat until 9pm - just your kind of guy. Perhaps you should meet. He tells me i'm uncivilized, a farm-girl.

True, i'm a country gal up with Venus and watching the moon set. My father would call RC's lifestyle "burning daylight"

So my system is on tilt, i need to go revitalize it.

very merry to you.
And to all who visit here.

Any Santas around? ->-> notice the DONATEbutton?? a perfect way to place a few presents under jm's tree.

Omg. RC. We have to meet. Dinner at midnite and we'll talk about Nepal at 3 AM burning all the daylight there is. Leos. My teachers.

You sweetheart. Good night, dear farm girl, and Merry C. And Merry RC. We will all meet.

I love your give.
