Refuge Inside ~ Moon in Cancer


The moon is in Cancer, the sun will rise in Libra…

There is a feeling of peace when you have arrived at home. It’s that feeling when all the tension in your body and your mind releases and you simply give in to the relaxation that comes with being in your home. This is a form of acceptance.

We must accept when it is time to let go and move our energies to matters closer to home, closer to heart. The Libra sun energy helps us to find balance between our earthly desires and our divine purposes.

With the moon in Cancer, our focus is not only on the physical home, but on the home inside of us. This is a connection to our soul and to our higher alignment. Do we feel comfort in the person we are inside and outside? Do we feel at peace with our intentions? Do we feel secure in our feelings?

Can we seek refuge in our soul? Can we call it home?


Full Moon in Pisces – September 19, 2013

Sometimes going below the surface can feel like we can barely breathe. We may kick and scream but only small waves and bubbles come to our rescue.

There is a point where we stop fighting these underlying forces and give in to the stillness and the wisdom that reside below.

At this full moon let a deep awareness of your being rise above and take a breath of life. Let it breathe and let it speak to you. Pisces energy is through a silent connection to spirit, through a light of intuition, through making the unconscious conscious.

Take a moment to listen.

Affirm Life in All Shades

Two minutes into watching this video this morning my nose begins to bleed.

As I hurry to the bathroom I wonder why. The rhetorical question, why? Why, God, why? My blood drips into the sink I am reminded that this is human…to bleed, to hurt, to kill, to yell, to sin. I turn the faucet and wash it away.This blood, though the same shade of red as the yellow woman or the brown woman, is white blood…I was born with white blood.

This white blood that I carry wakes me up at 4 am to start the hustle to care for two children with some tan blood. I kiss them goodbye with the sign of the cross because they are God’s wonderful creations.

This white blood that I carry takes me to a classroom of children with some brown blood. I greet them with a warm smile because they are God’s beautiful light.

How can I explain the tragedy of being born with darker blood to these little souls? I can’t and I don’t.

I choose to see the light on the horizon of this day and teach peace and justice. I choose to affirm life…in this moment…in all shades.
