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.
