I suppose I have a constant underworld rumble going on in my psyche which I pick up on with a cancer moon.
I wondered if anyone had some thoughts.....I am thinking more on the lines of cancer tapping into the public.....and if this can indicate a kind of psychic link to the general emotional ups and downs of large public bodies.... and would i be unduly impacted!!! I am careful in groups not to over do things and need my me time to stabilize frequently...
Does it hold any clues to handling this stuff.
Until I read this post I'd never heard of Orcus, so I did the research, downloaded the ephemeris, and viola!! It's interesting stuff, but I'm not sure about it's ability to influence anything, other than when in a tight aspect with other planets. But, given its recent `discovery' and naming, then perhaps its influence is to strengthen Pluto - I imagine this would certainly be so when someone has Orcus in close aspect to their natal Pluto, and so perhaps
also a sensitive planet such as the moon.. My position of Orca is 23 deg Gemini, which is in opposition to my Jupiter, and so forming a temporary mutable Grand Cross with the trans. Uranus-Saturn opposition. And I have been experiencing - slowly since the first exact Saturn-Uranus opp, but more powerfully during Jan & Feb - an increase in `exposure' to the darker side of human nature..... pretty ugly, actually; real crazy, in-your-face stuff.
flea, like me you have moon in Cancer, and I notice your moon in opposition to Mars (agghh!!!!) so I imagine that Orcus can give a darker depth to your sensitivities and insights to those in your environment. I'm wondering whether the real issue is Orcus opp Mars - what powerful energy that could create in your environment.
My closest friend has moon (in Aries) opp Mars, and she's forever putting herself in quite dangerous personal situations in order to `right-fight' according to what she believes is truthful. This is ok, but she gets herself projected onto by some quite difficult and even damaged people - oh, and
she hasn't spoken to her mum in years!!
