Third Quarter Moon in Cancer – Shed Your Skin

Just before we head into Scorpio season we reach the third quarter moon in Cancer (21st 13:39 BST). The theme of work and unearthing all those things which hold us back when it comes to going after what we want continues with this moon. You may well have received insight via dreams and signs, but if you haven’t then there is still time.

This phase is also about shedding. What is it that you no longer need. Is your skin too tight? Perhaps it is time to shed it, in order to grow.

“Identity was a liquid state, ever interchangeable, and adaptable to its surroundings… It was better to not have favourites – a snake didn’t mourn when it had to shed its skin.”
― Leonardo Donofrio
