It’s a Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Cancer today! With the sun conjunct Mercury, this eclipse brings our attention to communication, although that communication is anything but clear. We’re feeling emotional and having difficulty making sense of what we hear. It’s also a big time of false communication being put forth by unreliable sources, so CHECK YOUR FACTS before you believe what you’re told. We are easily mislead by words that activate our emotional biases, and the eclipse opposite Pluto makes us extra vulnerable to being manipulated and controlled. We need to be careful to not get carried away and overly convinced by anything external right now. If something is true today, it will still be true in a week when we can process it with more reasoned understanding.
While communication from and with others can be confusing, there is deep clarity to be found when we look within. Where have we been ignoring the truth of our hearts in order to satisfy the needs of others? We are each being called to connect with our intuition and move towards our purpose on this planet. How do we connect with this when we’re feeling oh-so-emotional? Lean into somatic practices that can help you come back into your body and move through whatever is coming up. Maybe that’s yoga, EFT tapping, dance, rolling around on the floor, or taking a hot bath. Allow any feelings that arise to be with you, without judgement. Whatever you’re experiencing now is ok, and no emotion is permanent. It is important to not repress or deny your feelings, and you are invited to look at them with curiosity rather than being swept away. See what you can learn, and write down any insights you think you may want to take with you into the future. <3
