Here's a wonderful article about this month's New Moon in Cancer as well as tonight's total solar eclipse and the energies it brings forth. She writes:
Every new lunation is a death and rebirth in the cycle. It's a dip into the pool and an emergence; in Cancer these "emergencies" have to do with your real feelings, dependency, comforts, home life, family inheritance, and the memories, fears, longings that drive you (sometimes unconsciously). This New Moon draws us into the rich depths of those emotional-psychic waters. It overtakes us so we have to "deal." We get real with the heart and the emotional reality we're living.
This New Moon is forcing out of what's in the emotional-psychic shadows for the collective, and each of us as individuals. The time is right for clearing and healing, which sometimes just means....keep breathing and take a nap.
I'm practicing gentle self-care this week, taking lots of quiet time to read and focus on work. The more time I spend in simplicity, the better -- which is why I've been burning the candles keep it simple and be present, be here more often than not lately.
