Friday: Cancer Moon

This can be felt as overstimulation or need for peace and calm. If you feel that, turn things off to get a bit of solitude and think clearly. Planting and fishing are favored in the almanacs. In urban life this can translate as activities that result in profit or growth. Void of course Moon begins at 1:04 pm ET. Today's color is white.
