Such an empowering article for women, I must share.
Wow, this month has simply flown by! Just posted last week’s without a summary, but I did take notes – am keeping this collection of reports on my blog because it speaks to my heart and soul, helps me understand what’s going on in the world and why I feel the way I feel. Lots of healing going on in my life right now, along with lots of change. Hatha yoga is helping transform my body, and now my teacher is coming twice a week, and it was his idea! Working with the crystals during massages now for those who are open to it – I have them in the room in grid shape for every single person, though, and they work even when you’re not holding them. I am in my element with all these planets in Cancer, being a Moonmaiden and all.
This week, Tom talks to us from a beautiful location in British Columbia, with rainbow rays of light illuminating the nature shots at first. We just had Summer Solstice and the Sun has moved into Cancer and now Mercury has joined. The moon is in Gemini, but she moves on into Cancer tomorrow at 2 degrees, 47 minutes of Cancer. Venus is in her element in Taurus, for she rules Taurus, earth sign, and trine Pluto in Capricorn. Coming around to the Sun, Mercury, Moon conjunction – and Mars is also in Cancer. These aspects are taking us down, a long way down into our feelings, into our emotions.
Mars will be squaring Jupiter on Saturday, actively expanding, and the moon will conjunct Mars Saturday also. That Mars is square Jupiter because it is also trine Neptune – Jupiter quincunx Neptune, so whenever something comes into square Jupiter it will also trine Neptune – a fascinating aspect.
Next week Mars will oppose Pluto, which we may be feeling already, but all in all, this is a very nice week.
We are talking about feelings, love, intimacy, emotional security. The New Moon in Cancer will set the tone for the whole month. Mercury will be traveling with Mars in Cancer through this whole month as well. And Mars is like drilling deep inward, Mars in Cancer is twelve o’clock midnight. This is the darkest and deepest, most personal aspect of ourselves.
We each have an introvert – and Cancer brings that out – we want to be in our shells, stay in our beds and meditate and shut the world out. Pluto in Capricorn calls for physical security.
It’s time for us to come out of our center and out to work, while the new moon and Mars in Mercury make us want to stay in our inner world. Mars in Cancer is like the mother bear protecting her cubs. It’s like putting a bolt on the door and saying, “leave me alone, I’m meditating.” We may be feeling the call to clear our personal space to create the time and space for creating. This is a great time to get in touch with our imaginations and create time to be inspired, write those books, paint those paintings. Venus in Taurus is exalted. It leads us to look at the beauty of our inner world as well.
The North Node moved into Leo since May, which is about fun and play and really enjoying ourselves. The struggle here may be to remove some of these duties and create our own space and time (this hits me so personally). Saturn is square Chiron this whole year – Chiron brings us to the underworld. Cancer seeks emotional bonding, security, the need to be snuggled, held, protected, may bring back memories, because the moon is the past, so those times from our childhood may arise, and Mars in Cancer can bring up some of the bitter memories as well. Cancer can be clingy – those claws like to hold on – the need for the breast is what our inner child wants, who is not rational, not logical.
We have so much feminine energy with all these planets in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces. This is soft, open, vulnerable energy. This is a beautiful time for emotional connection, or sexual connection. This is a good time to get out in nature and really connect with the Mother and let go. Pluto in Capricorn says to let go and die to that external authority. That old idea that we must succeed before we get to take care of ourselves or rest – is no longer relevant.
This week’s mantra: When I am in my center, my innermost core, completely relaxed, needing no more, I connect with the Mother, who gave birth to it all, as in the silence I can hear her call.
He asks when was the last time we were in absolute silence, and recommends we seek the silence, for within it emerges the spirit call.
He is so in tune and beautiful today. This is definitely one of the best.
Namaste. Aloha. So Much Shhhhh.
So feeling these energies, and days are flying by so quickly that a day turns into a week before it seems possible!
My wish is that fathers and their families everywhere had a wonderful Father’s Day.
Love the music of plants and trees. Been so busy re-inventing my life, but tomorrow is a day off, first in a while. Been doing lots of yoga and earthing, and working on my balcony garden, which is lovely to sit by and just enjoy the energy of the plants. Two fairy gardens this year, but waiting in pictures til I fix my cellphone. Accidentally smashed the screen. Three times. During Mercury retrograde.
I think it was Nature’s plan to get me to leave that phone alone most of the time. But taking pictures with it is useful.
Almost Summer Solstice! After sleeping, going to make note of what’s going on cosmically.
I learned today that coriander essential oil helps with neuromuscular difficulties. Good to know! I am learning more about oils and also collecting them. New batch coming in tomorrow, did the better massage today.
Love this time of year. Growing things makes me so happy.
This week Kaypacha talks at us from a mystery location near a large body of water (watch it and he does reveal it about halfway through).
Today is Saturday, and the Moon has moved into Capricorn, and on Monday She will move into Aquarius. The Moon moved into Sagittarius by Thursday, conjunct with Black Moon Lilith and Saturn, with Pluto right behind them in Capricorn.
Last night was Full Moon in Sagittarius, such a lovely aspect for Her! I had the blessing of going to the art walk our town holds every second Friday, ran into some old friends and had a great time. Perfect for Sun in Gemini, one day after the Full Moon – we’re having all this left brain/right brain activity – mental thought axis, reptilian brain, old brain, new brain. Gemini is all about mental activity, social media, communication, examining both sides of every equation. Mercury is in Gemini along with the Sun, while Mars moving on into Cancer, which is all about emotional connection, that need to be loved and to be held.
Venus has finally left the bad ass sign of Aries and moved on into stabilizing Taurus, so we can take a deep breath for at least a little while. Mercury is home in Gemini, as Venus is quite at home in Taurus. Mars is the planet which will be having a harder time – we will be having some powerful emotional energy surfacing with this aspect.
Tom is reading a book by Harville Hendrix, P.h.D. (I wonder if it’s Getting the Love You Want, because I have read that, and what he’s saying would definitely fit). We take our childhoods and try to make them work when we become adults. Part of how we choose our partners is that our reptilian brain automatically senses that a certain person has the perfect ingredients to help heal childhood wounds related to our parents or to unsolved trauma. We mirror each other in relationships.
Cancer is the past – and there’s a relationship with our past and our inner child, and now with the Sun in Gemini it’s time to learn about our feelings, our history, and to understand and deepen our relationships with other people. Perhaps we shouldn’t blame them when we feel abandoned by them, or other behavior which may just be a reflection of our own issues and a perfect opportunity for us to learn,.
This is a great time for new therapies – like family constellations – and other analyses which will help us deal with our childhood stuff.
This week’s mantra: Just as an answer to my question makes me question even more, I love that life is a never ending mystery awaiting behind every door.
The Sun is square Neptune still, so there’s a need for forgiveness. My favorite astrologer apologizes for some distractions this time around (there are families playing loudly behind him), and reminds us that life is always perfectly imperfect.
I didn’t type up a summary last week due to an extraction – oddly enough in the same place Kaypacha lost a tooth last month. Only I went to the dentist for mine.
And this week has been busy in all sorts of good ways! Three yoga classes! Lots of improvement in healing and my work, yet also still dealing with challenges as I know we all are, but we are transforming! So keep shining the light and also embrace the soft feminine darkness of night and together we create a whole new day of light and dark intertwined, passing duality.
And for record keeping sake’s, here is a clip of last week’s. That way there won’t be very many missing for 2017.
Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.
Rainbow Blessings of Love and Light! (He starts last week’s report off in front of a waterfall and says, “Water, water everywhere.” Since I have a poem with that title, I can see another very cool cosmic coincidence. There’s been so much going on and it’s changing quickly! Yet it is also going to take lots of hard work and isn’t an overnight process. Healing is ongoing, and we are all in this together.
Love you all.
