Live Your Heart and Soul’s Purpose with Love and Passion
This new moon in Cancer continues the full-on, intense, transformational energies coming to us AND awakening within us. They continue to ask us to be fully conscious and make love be what we consciously choose from minute to minute.
This partial eclipse in Cancer helps soften and slow down the intense and fast moving energies, outside and inside us. It helps to think of the energies like a spiral made of magic, love, and sparkly light, gently winding into our being. This makes it easier to absorb from the outside and experience from within.
Cancer energy gets 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. We all have Cancer energy somewhere in our charts/beings, so we’ll all feel this somewhere in our lives.
Another message we’ve been receiving for some time now is intensified with the new moon and eclipse – 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 in those we are “hating,” and within our own self. We don’t have to be doormats, but we have entered that time now where the place/energy we’re coming from has a more profound effect than ever before. If we’re angry, it feeds anger elsewhere – where we project it onto specific others, in ourselves, and in random people or groups seeking the negative energy to feed off of. Needless to say, this creates a destructive cycle.
Empowered Love is the power that can break that cycle of anger, cruelty, and destruction.
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, or otherwise think negatively about others. Simply put, the more you love, care for, and 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. It’s also important that we honor, embrace and love our human self. Souls have magic, and so does the human being.
Cancer is an empathic energy that feels the pain that others may be avoiding, and that may cause them to lash out. The beautiful other side is that Cancer can also feel the love and magic that is all around and within all of us. Because Cancer feels. Everything.
The combination of all the energies going on helps us magnify the love we can empathically feel now and radiate outward, feeding the seeds and blossoms that thrive on love.
Then we have the many Retrogrades of the Summer of 2018. In a general sense, these retrogrades are a gift to draw us inward to center in our heart/mind truth. It’s like pushing the reset button of 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.
This Moon cycle reminds me of two Rumi quotes:
“Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.”(This is perfect for the summer retrogrades and eclipses.) Also:
“Let the beauty we love be what we do.”
The truth our beings seek is to see the One Soul in everyone and everything, as well as the sparkly, magical love that connects all.
We must choose wisely, from the authentic place of our hearts and souls. We must act with kindness, integrity, and truth, honoring that ALL life is one. We’re called to remember that all life has a soul, we’re all related, and no one or thing is better or less than another. We’re here to remember and wake up to the fact that we’re all free and here to take care of one another: all life on Earth and Mother Earth herself. It’s important to remember that we all come from the same heartlight and that where we’re unique is where we dance through the prism and shine our light as rainbows. Blessed Be.
