2 New Moons in Cancer this cycle.
This is unusual. But isn’t everything unusual right now? I see it as an opportunity to dial in our compassion and unconditional love. The unconditionally loving mother-y water-y emotional realm is looking for us to explore our relationships. To self, to self care, to others, to our habits, to our homes and lives. We keep getting chances. Do-overs. Thank goodness, right?
The summer kicked off with an eclipse.
So much intense energies on so many different fronts. Here’s what’s good though: an eclipse can reveal something…that was hidden before. Like previously unexpressed deep feelings, covert manipulation or some other surprise. This eclipse is in the super-sensitive sign of Cancer. And everyone’s psychic power get turned way up for the Summer solstice.
♋Cancer is the caretaker.
Like a mama archetype that’s feeding everyone nourishing soul food right from her healthy big boobs. But also like the empath archetype…that can read emotions, body language and tone, in two seconds flat, and know the real truth. This is also one of the secrets that makes Cancer a wonderfully erotic lover. Knowing intuitively what feels good while being sublimely attentive…mmmMm
Even if these traits aren’t typically your strong suit, this transit has you nurturing others and yourself in more meaningful ways. Check up on your loved ones. Cuddle up and get mushy with someone you can trust.
That hard-shelled part of your psyche..
The side of you that doesn’t want just anyone to know about your vulnerable underbelly. Like Cancer’s totem, the crab. It’s location in your Astrology chart is where you need to walk around with some self-protectiveness and still effectively share your gifts and loving encouragement in this complex world.
Be protective of yourself. If there’s a place where you’ve been exploited or taken for granted, you can retreat for a bit… Then you can manage your anger, ditch the narcissistic jerks, and get some healthy detachment (without a hint of self-destructiveness). ...Breathe... Then tune in to your emotions, connect with your belly, and your own true needs for a change.
There’s a fluid, flowing, ebb and flow that goes along with all of this emotional stuff. Cancer’s a water sign. The water element cleanses the spirit, the moods, the emotions and the body. Try a delightful soak, a magical shower, a swim, walk on the beach, or just some fresh water in a beautiful sentimental glass from your Gramma. Then you can try some kind, encouraging, inner dialogue with yourself. Feels good right?
Make yourself comfortable… take inventory of your assets and feel more secure as you tend your finances. Pay the bills, balance the books, count your money, and save a little more for the stuff that makes you feel good, safe and taken care of.
The Cancer timing continues now through July 21st. But is amplified by the New Moon June 20th – 23rd, AND a second new moon in cancer on July 19-21 the Solar Eclipse on June 21st, and the Full moon Lunar Eclipse July 5th. Compound all that with all the retrogrades this summer and we got an intense cosmic ride.
I wish for you to have a safe comfortable space to be open and receptive to what’s really good for you.. Best advice? Double down on your summer self care!
