Moon Cycle in Cancer
20 Degrees 41 Minutes Cancer
7:48 p.m. Pacific Time
Partial Solar Eclipse (8:02 p.m. Pacific Time)
Cancer energy skitters side to side, back and forth. It’s not a straight moving energy. It tries to avoid feelings. The full-on energies coming to us AND awakening within us are super intense. They’re also asking us to be fully conscious and make love be what we consciously choose from minute to minute.
While powerful and intense, this partial eclipse helps soften and slow down the intense and fast moving energies – outside and inside us. This eclipse also acts to spiral the flow of energy – think a giant water slide with magic, love and sparkly light – which makes it easier to absorb from the outside and experience from within.
Many of you may already be feeling a kind of shaking from your core and/or shaking in the atmosphere around you. That’s the transformational energy – shaking things up to create the breaking up of the hard, thick shells that block us from releasing our love and accessing our internal truths and purposes.
Cancer energy feels overwhelmed when there’s too much feeling going on. One gift from this Cancer Moon cycle and eclipse is to learn how to empower yourself to manage the feelings so you CAN feel and deal with the feelings.
Another message and gift is a message that’s been coming through really loud the past few months. That message is that we must think, feel, act, speak, “be”, and sense from LOVE. When we say “I hate (fill in the blank)”, we feed the beasts of such things as greed, selfishness, hatred, not caring and cruelty, and that makes them bigger. We don’t have to be doormats, but we have entered that time now where the place/energy we are rooted in, and come from, has a more profound effect than ever before. If we’re angry, it feeds anger elsewhere (especially where we project it) and that general anger may get picked up by some random person or group that feeds off anger.
Two other key points are:
- Take responsibility with your feelings, and
- Communicate and share with others – let others know you love them. And communicate with yourself, too. Remembering to love yourself is really important.
We’re also now fully in the time when we are shifting from opposite and polarity to something else – like love as the answer to the problem. Not an opposite point of view covered up in “caring”, but a genuine other kind of response that is authentically rooted in love.
With a Cancer Moon, we’re gifted with the opportunity to deepen how we treat ourselves. The more you love yourself unconditionally, the less you’ll hate, be jealous of, etc. others. The more you love, care for, forgive yourself, the easier it is to love, care for and forgive others.
Remember to be gentle with yourself and your “progress” because while we’re Souls on an amazing Earth journey, we’re also humans with Souls. And it’s imperative that we honor, embrace and love our human self. Souls have magic, and so does the human being.
And then there’s the 2018 Summer of Retrogrades. J I believe these retrogrades, in a general sense, are a gift to draw us inward to center in our heart/mind truth. Kind of like getting us to reset our inner compass to love, compassion, forgiveness, empowerment + love, right action, kindness, caring for ALL life and harmonizing with one another and the multi-verse.
The other piece I’m feeling so strongly is to start (or keep doing) YOUR purpose. Follow YOUR HEART. This Moon cycle reminds me of two Rumi quotes:
“Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love”(perfect for the summer retrogrades and eclipses) and
“Let the beauty we love be what we do”
Build/keep building the foundation your Soul points you toward through your heart. This matters so very much. To have foundations based on love and soul purpose already formed is important for the new beginnings here and coming.
To speak, think, feel, act with and “be” in and rooted in love, acting with compassion, forgiveness, understanding, leadership (that opens a lot with this Cancer Moon and even more when the Sun and Moon are in Leo) from love and caring is and will be more important than ever. To see the Soul in everyone and everything is really critical. Cancer is a great energy to feel the pain that causes others to avoid their own truth of love and lash out. It’s also a great energy to feel the love and magic that is all around and within all of us because Cancer feels. Everything. It’s pretty empathic.
This Moon cycle offers great gifts to face and embrace feelings and love, and to create the space and foundations f safety, beauty, kindness, tolerance, creating a caring economy and culture, and wise, loving in-sight of self and all others.
