The Moon’s Revolutionary Energies
This Moon has potent revolutionary energies that take the shape of tremendous lessons about discipline and endurance. There is knowledge to be found for those willing to look within during this lunation.
You must, in particular, let go of the counter-productive thought patterns that have been racing through your head these past few months.
A Shift In Mentality
Let go of shame, guilt, and fear. Instead, use love, caring, curiosity, and bravery to cultivate a new kind of discipline and strength.
One that carries with it resilience. One that enables you to connect with people in a way that is based on empathy rather than fear.
No Need To Suffer To Survive
There is a widely held belief in our culture that in order to develop and survive, we must all be expected to experience some degree of hardship and suffering. This Cancer New Moon is here to let you know that there is an alternative path.
In these difficult times, we may draw on the resiliency of the Mother, Cancer, and find the strength and bravery to assist our family. Rather than being motivated by fear, the ability to show up is fueled by feelings of love, openness, and compassion.
Trust The Instincts Brought By The Moon
You will have protective instincts under this Moon and should use these to protect your loved ones in whatever way you deem necessary.
This may simply be helping them out of a bad situation, providing emotional support or providing wisdom and guidance. But this Moon also urges you to find the strength to protect yourself as well.
It’s Okay To Be Vulnerable, Don’t Resist
One of the most important things to take away from this lunation is to have total faith in yourself and your path, even if you feel vulnerable. Understand that these changes will be resisted by your subconscious, the part of you that wants to keep you “safe” and “secure,” by maintaining the status quo.
But this New Moon demands courage from you, and in Cancer it enhances your sense of self-worth and authenticity.
Whose Rules Are You Living By?
This is a perfect opportunity for you to do introspective work. Check in with yourself: What are your hopes and dreams for the future?
Are you attempting to conform to what others demand of you? Learn to cultivate this new dialogue with yourself and you will find the answers you seek.
