NEW MOON in CANCER
June 23rd, 2017
The New Moon in Cancer this week both calms and energizes, bringing relief from last week’s crazy-making vibes. While, any issues we have been faced with won’t necessarily dissolve, the New Moon aims to heal those recently uncovered sore spots. In other words, the pains are still there, yet, we are likely to make an effort to do something about it, to tend to them. Needless to say, this shift in attitude allows us to focus on what we can do instead of pouring our energy into obstacles that probably won’t budge no matter how hard we push. Thus, the drop in pressure and tapering off of excessive over-thinking, characteristic of a new lunar cycle reminds us that we don’t need to wrestle vehemently to create changes we need in our lives, especially on the emotional level .
“We value virtue but do not discuss it. The honest bookkeeper, the faithful wife, the earnest scholar get little of our attention compared to the embezzler, the tramp, the cheat.” –– John Steinbeck
“Life, she realized, so often became a determined, relentless avoidance of pain-of one’s own, of other people’s. But sometimes pain had to be acknowledged and even touched so that one could move into it and through it and past it. Or else be destroyed by it.” — Mary Balogh
“Gratitude turns disappointment into lessons learned, discoveries made, alternatives explored, and new plans set in motion.” –Auliq-Ice
