Holley, Jason – Exquisite Attunement: The Moon and Empathy

Moon and Cancer imagery offers insight into the shifting rhythms and cautious defenses of the emotional body.  Deep attunement to this dimension of a person creates a felt sense of safety, a “you get me” feeling that makes so much possible.  Yet it’s a delicate dance; we each carry ever-shifting configurations of emotional sensitivities longing for response, shown by the Moon, Cancer, and the 4th house.  We will explore the ebbs and flows of emotional resonance through the charts and therapeutic journeys of individuals with challenging lunar aspects, for whom “feeling felt” by another was both an essential and terrifying need.
