Watery Yin New Moon

New moon in nurturing, watery Cancer. Time to slow down and love up yourself.

You may be feeling confused, emotional, exhausted. After all, you’re only human. The past year has been filled with so much stormy change and chaos. How could you not be affected by wave after wave of change?

Try not to think so much. Rest and regroup. Get watery. Relax in water, drink water, move like water. Remember, you ARE mostly water. Reconnect with watery, flowing ways of being.

Go with the flow of how you’re feeling. Give yourself time and space to emotionally process everything that has happened to you in the past year. Clear the decks before the next wave hits.

Emotional Full Moon in Cancer

Full moon in watery, emotional Cancer, the nurturer. After many months of pandemic chaos and confusion, bruised and battered parts of your psyche need to be held close and nurtured now.

You may feel the urge to take care of family, friends, your community – the entire world. But the nurturing needs to begin with you.

Give yourself space to express any feelings you submerged or suppressed in 2020. You did what you needed to do to survive job shifts, financial insecurity, election mayhem, lockdowns and loneliness. Use this full moon time to grieve and make peace with everything that has happened to you.

Honor yourself and your journey. Take time to grieve and release the traumas and dramas of the past year. Make peace with 2020, so you can experience more joy and love and peace in the new year.

New Moon in Cancer Redux

New Moon in watery, emotional Cancer for the second time this season. Two new moons in the same sign is rare. In addition, Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter all sit in opposition in the sign of Capricorn, the shaper. The dismantling of the status quo is speeding up and intensifying. Old structures and mores are crumbling.

No, things won’t go back to normal any time soon. What we call “normal” is in the midst of being blown up and recreated piece by piece. Our old life — the one that seemed so rock solid — is now splitting and shifting beneath our feet.

If you had your ideal life, what would a normal week look like, feel like, taste like to you? Ruminate on what is most important to you in life and love. Consider all the ways you might fit those priorities into your new normal.

A better way is possible.

New Moon in Cancer

A New Portal Opens

New moon in Cancer, the nurturing mama. This new moon is amplified by the annular solar eclipse that occurred right after the moon reached zero point in Cancer. New moon energies of change and transformation are running even higher than normal.

This natural seed point is the perfect time to get still and examine your current life. Think about what you want to seed and grow.

What is not serving you that you can now release?
What do you want to turn your energy and focus toward?
What do you want to add to your life?
What does your Soul crave?
How can you move in that direction, even if it’s only a few baby steps?

This time is a portal into your future. Allow yourself to ponder, fantasize and dream about which door you will choose to step through.

Cancer is a watery, highly emotional sign. Be gentle with yourself as you ponder your life and your future.

Full Moon in Cancer with a Side of Pluto

Full moon in watery Cancer, the nurturing mama sign. The high emotions of a Cancer moon are compounded by a lunar eclipse. Meanwhile, Pluto is busy blowing up Saturn’s old, out-dated rules and structures right and left.

Things are getting REAL Who knows what will happen next? Stop trying to figure it all out – nothing makes logical sense right now. If you’re feeling stirred up, anxious or really vulnerable, you are not alone! The craziness is getting difficult to ignore. 

Make self-care a priority. Do something nurturing and loving for yourself every single day. And if you cannot figure out how to relax and calm down on your own, please find a healer or therapist who can help. You are important – we need you healthy and happy. 💗

Wild and Stormy New Moon

New moon in watery Cancer. A total solar eclipse cauldron of energy complicates Cancer’s normal emotional focus today. The world may seem even more wild and chaotic than usual — like you are at sea in the midst of a big storm. Solar eclipses carry the energy of transformative shift, and the journey through a big shift can be quite intense.

This too shall pass.

Find a way to ground and anchor yourself. Use comfort foods, music, movement and other activities that tend to calm you. Avoid the news if you find yourself stirred up to the point of anxiety.

New moon and total eclipse energy will catalyze any intentions that you set now. But get in a calm, collected frame of mind first.

Solstice By Moonlight

 

‪Full moon in watery Cancer lights up the longest night in the northern hemisphere. This is a traditional time of rest and reflection. Sit in the stillness of winter solstice and breathe with the slow flow of nature in winter. Slow down and enjoy the quiet gifts of the season.
