New moon in watery Cancer. Big emotions are intensified by a partial solar eclipse and Pluto in opposition. In these chaotic times, remember to nurture and care for yourself. Even badass warriors need me-time!
Take loving care of yourself so you have the focus & passion to care for your world.
“Sometimes ‘revolutionary’ is just recognizing our feelings
and need for love and connection and doing something about it,
perhaps releasing the victim there.”
~Pat Liles, The Power Path
Happy Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere.
Our Sun is at its furthest north position in the sky
and that means long luscious days filled with light. Enjoy!
Pause and take a few moments to honor the Sun, bringer of light and life.
I water things now constantly:
water the hearts of dead friends with light,
the sores of the living with anything warm,
water the skies with a thousand affections
and follow the voices of animals
into grasses that move like ocean.
I eat flowers now and birds come.
I eat care and things to love arrive.
I eat time and as I age
whatever I swallow grows timeless.
I eat and undie
and water my doubts
and birds come.
excerpt from Surviving Has Made Me Crazy
“Hers is the power of the pouncing lioness, the roar of a hurricane, the swoop of an eagle, the crashing of a wave, the gentle force of the moon on the tides, the unleashing of a mighty orgasm, the contractions of labour, the spider weaving a web of gossamer silk…”
