This opposition is between your ideas, thoughts & concepts and your unconscious drives, supporting some deep-digging into the power of your mind and thoughts. How has your thinking shaped your choices over the last 6-months?
Cancer time brings us face-to-face with some major choices & decisions (Eclipses) which will likely require some form of Assimilation & Elimination. Cancer’s gift is Processing all that passes through your system...
This energy says, it’s time to go with the flow – “new and different” being the flow. It wants to shake it up a bit – in a good way. However, if you feel like new and different is more like chaos and disruption, then you need to reflect and see if you aren’t being too rigid.

Life is all about choices. And if your parents were busy, like most parents are, with survival and keeping a roof over your head, clothes on your back and food in your belly, sitting you down once in a while to point out your choices and their consequences probably wasn't a priority.

Everything about you - the good, the bad and the ugly - is because of you and your choices. We make choices based on the knowledge and experience we have at the time, but the choices are our own nonetheless.
