The New Moon on July 12th at 7:48 pm PDT is the first of three eclipses occurring during the next four weeks. We are experiencing heightened endings and beginnings. In exact opposition to Pluto, we can trust the moon will reveal something to us. Our evolution is possible and we can work towards the changes we are committed to, but need to be willing to tend our souls.
If we wake up from a disturbing dream, what do we do? What if a child awoke from a nightmare? As you enter this lunar month, relate to whatever occurs like you are inquiring into a dream and as if you are your own child who needs to be touched, held, listened to, connected, and safe. Only profound tenderness can accommodate such extremes. The Cancer Moon inspires utmost gentleness and protectiveness of the softness in ourselves and others.
Charged energies compel we empower a feminine perspective and approach, while we are invited to encounter honestly dimensions of our psyche and patterns in community. We can emerge more liberated from destructive personal and cultural patterns, if we are willing to feel deeply and be responsible for our part in systemic dysfunction and conflict. Patience, listening, and empathy is required. Dramatic circumstances may arise.
We are cautioned against righteous rebellion, and challenged to bring wisdom and a taste for uncertainty to whatever our passionate call.
Imagine that you can truly embody the sensitive crab, crawling carefully in shifting sand. As we traverse the shore, we protect our minds from fixation, retaliation, or blame by staying with feeling. We sense everything, the coming wind and waves, and we allow for change. We cannot hold still the sea, it washes over us, and we heal, accessing deeper and deeper levels of blessing and love.
From our human shells, we can supplicate wisdom, listen to dreams, our bodies, grief, hurt, the moon, sun, and stars, and shape a home for our souls in the sand while we feast on magic. Stay vigilant, gentle, and brave.
