Refuge Inside ~ Moon in Cancer

moon-21day-4238

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?

Happy New Moon in Leo 🙂

The creative, loving, spirited new moon in Leo is trine the bold and exciting Uranus in Aries. Uranus is currently retrograde so the surprising changes we may feel with this influence are now internal ones. The moon is always connected to our emotions, what makes us feel at home in our soul. In Leo, our inner child is reborn and encourages us to go out and play with our emotions. Let them be free and wander to a place of childlike innocence where pure love can be found. Can we let go of our cynicism and return to faith? Can we approach the surprises we encounter in love with curiousity and wonder?

The planet Jupiter is also in conjunction with the asteroid Pallas, both in Cancer. Jupiter expands Pallas’ emotional intelligence here in this sign, creating warmth and security in our base relationships as well as the ability to defend our family and our home.

Leo is the sign that is ruled by the sun. At this new moon, we can shine bright like the little bits of stardust that we are, knowing that we come from greatness. This greatness reminds us that the need to share love and receive love is an innate one and we should not deny ourselves this pleasure in life. Open your hearts to a love that you haven’t felt in a long time…

If there was ever a day to say it, it’d be today…

Shine bright like a diamond 🙂 Happy New Moon 🙂 xoxo

Full Moon in Aquarius ~ July 22nd, 2013

Full Moon today at 0 degrees Aquarius

~ There’s high, and there’s high, and to get really high – I mean so high that you can walk on the water, that high-that’s where I’m going. ~ George Harrison

Aquarius is the sign that rules the 11th house, the house of dreams, goals, ideals, friendships, groups, the collective whole…and the power that lies in each of these when we take our thoughts to a higher level.

The sun is now in Leo, the sign opposing the full moon. Leo is the sign that rules the 5th house, which can take our thoughts to a heart-centered place as we fulfill true self-expression through pleasure and creative arts.

Although Aquarius is an air sign, it is represented by a symbol for water, two waves. Aquarius is the water bearer, the one who carries water to all those in need in order to replenish, to cleanse. During this full moon, the water bearer can bring forth all the gifts of Jupiter in Cancer, including emotional expansion, which will allow us to lead from the heart.

Considering the abundance of water energy in the last month and the lasting effects of the Grand Water Trine in Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces from July 17th-19th, this full moon is very connected to the source of life and motion that is water. In fact all full moons carry a wave of emotion as the Moon rules the watery sign of Cancer.

This full moon draws in the flowing energy of the Aquarian female, who moves into the future with courage and independence, but with the light of her heart and her mind. The Aquarian goddess will move us in the direction of our soul as we speak our truth. We must let go of the protective Cancer mother who puts her babies’ needs before her own. The goddess assures us that putting ourselves first will lead to greater prosperity for all. She gives us the clarity to speak our truth, understanding that while it may hurt others, there is a soul desire to be filled.

Mars in Cancer gives power and determination to our feelings. Mercury, now turning direct in Cancer, allows us to express these feelings after several weeks of reflection while in retrograde motion. The Aquarian intellect will allow us to sort out our feelings even further and add a dose of practicality to our Mars decisions. The asteroid Pallas is also now in Cancer and will provide us with an internal need to uphold justice, heal those suffering and represent peace to the world.

Happy Full Moon 🙂 Much love & light to you…xoxoxo

Grand Water Trine ~ July 17th-19th 2013

Image

Today Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune have activated an extremely rare and quite marvelous aspect called a Grand Water Trine. The planets sit at 4 degrees in a triangle in the sky with Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces.

Neptune in Pisces is the fish in the huge ocean of the collective consciousness who swims deeper into the spiritual realms in order to feel as if it can fly.

Saturn in Scorpio is the scorpion that lets go of its deep-rooted fears and tranforms in the sacred sands of darkness into strength and beauty.

Jupiter in Cancer is the crab that realizes the great abundance that exists when it comes out of its sensitive little shell and surrenders itself to the shores of the world.

Together with the faster-moving planets having recently transited (Venus) or currently transiting Cancer (Mercury, Mars), there is a strong need for true emotional healing in the heart in order to achieve wholeness in mind, body, spirit, soul.

Water can feel like we’re being pulled under at high tide. But with this pull, with this energy, is an opportunity for awareness as we touch the ocean floor and get soaked to the core. For we can only heal what we are aware of. Now is the time to see and more importantly, to feel, what we have neglected for so long.

If we choose to embrace the strong tides of life, we can rebirth ourselves through our truth and our potential. Because life is not floating on the waves, but learning to swim with them.

Happy Wednesday 🙂 Much love! xoxo

New Moon in Cancer – July 8th, 2013

New Moon in Cancer today at 3:14am EST

~ The dawn destroys the night, and that is a beautiful thing. Life reawakens, the light of the sun shines. This is symbolic of the transformation you are going through now. You are experiencing an ending in life, but it is a change for the better. The light shines in your heart now as you release a part of life that welcomes you to a new beginning. Though you can’t always understand the purpose behind the experience logically, your heart knows there is a higher reason for this transformation. Your soul needs this change, so welcome it with gratitude and love. ~ Nadiya Shah

Just as you can think of the present moment as night or as morning, you can choose to see your life experiences as dark or as light. Every morning, and especially during the days surrounding a new moon, we have the opportunity to start again and see things in a different shade. During this new moon, what will you see upon wakening?

If you choose to embrace the mama moon energy, you can give birth to something extraordinary and you can be sure that it’s from the heart ♡

Much light & love to my friends and especially those who are Cancer Sun, Cancer Moon or Cancer Rising. New light is on the horizon. You just have to believe you can reach it 🙂 Happy New Moon 🙂 xoxo

Jupiter Enters Cancer – June 26th, 2013

Image

Good morning, loves. Today Jupiter enters the sign of Cancer. Yay. So excited to see how this planet will expand our lives over the next year. Especially excited since my sun sign is Cancer

While Jupiter is in Cancer, it is said to be in exaltation, meaning that it is in the ideal position to pursue its mission of fulfillment and happiness through growth and expansion. This is because Cancer is a cardinal sign, a leader in the zodiac. Unlike the other 3 cardinal signs, Cancer leads from the heart. When we are fulfilling our heart’s desires, we are bound to receive outside blessings from the universe.

Our Earth is so small compared to the planet Jupiter, but it’s all about perspective. Our heart’s desires may be few and may be small, but they are a essential links to forming the great soul circle.

Connect to the collective consciousness and your desires become the desires of many. Connect to the collective consciousness and they become huge and necessary for our entire existence.

Much love  xoxo
