Happy New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer! As with every New Moon, this lunation offers energetic support for planting seeds and starting something new. Eclipse energy briefly pauses the energy between the sun, moon, and Earth, and then supercharges what comes next. If things have been feeling stagnant or stuck, this eclipse will help you cut the cord and move forward with a refreshing WHOOOSH! of clear and vibrant energy. We suddenly are aware with great clarity of what’s been holding us back. We may feel the urge to purge our homes, end a relationship, make a career change, or move to a new city. For some of us, it won’t be so drastic, but we will find our attention called to where we feel a desire to set new boundaries or question old habits, beliefs, or behaviors.
Cancer is the sign of the Divine Mother, and while we may not all have grown up with the nurturing love of the archetypical mother, we do each have the choice and the opportunity to offer it to ourselves. How can you move forward with the greatest love, respect, and care for yourself? It is an extremely valuable and powerful time to write down what you want to call into your life, whether that is concrete goals or feelings you want to experience more. The writing clarifies your intention in a way that not much else does. This loving lunation invites you to take that time for yourself tonight, to sit with your most dear desires and get clear on what you want.
