27 June 2014
All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension,
stress, worry - all forms of fear – are caused by too much future and not enough presence. Guilt, regret,
resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of non-forgiveness
are caused by too much past, and not enough presence.
We've heard by now that living in the moment can be a good thing, but let's face it, most of us are not quite there yet. We're definitely on our way, but I feel there's still something rather familiar (and many lessons that we can learn) from being flawed, human and not-in-the-moment. Especially with Mercury going retrograde (currently in Gemini) since June 7th - until July 1st, we may have been contemplating about the past and the future in our mind. Some may even feel sad about the past, or feel a little fearful of the future, but that really shouldn't stop us from moving on anyway. In fact, they can be wonderful tools to empower + help propel us forward into the future of our dreams! Now that sounds promising! (ノ^_^)ノ
Along with the Retrograde Mercury in Gemini, we currently also have planet Venus in the same sign. With Venus here, many can find more enjoyable time to read stories about love, perhaps listen to some lovely love songs, thinking about love, or talking about it with their friends and loved ones. Most can finally discover more opportunities to express their heart and mind in more harmonious and effective ways.
Speaking of the upcoming New Moon in Cancer, one word that comes to mind is dreamy. Not only will the Sun and the Moon come together closely in the sign of protective and caring Cancer, but they will make a positive trine aspect to dreamy Neptune – which has been in a fellow water sign of Pisces. So in this New Moon, it can be another great time for us to ask our self; how can we be more optimistic and positive in the midst of our different emotions? How can we be more nurturing to our body, and to our feelings? To our family, and friends? To our work, and colleagues? To our goals and dreams? Let's not forget that we still have Jupiter here in late degrees of Cancer (which is about to move to Leo next month) still making a trine aspect to Saturn. So we still have ample time to attract and manifest our goals and dreams - as long as we're still happy to do our part in making them come true! °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°
Interestingly, it can be quite easy too for some of us to get a little emotional during this New Moon. But it can also remind us of ways in which we can be extra nurturing to our own emotions and feelings - while at the same time understand the emotions and feelings of others in our world.
In the end, the New Moon is always a great time to plant new seeds, to nurture them and to work on them until the next Full Moon - which will happen in the constellation of Capricorn on July 12th. A time when we can see a new turning point in our life, and reap the rewards of our efforts since the powerful Capricorn New Moon back on January 1st!
It's time to
LOVE. DREAM. CREATE.
Happy New Moon in Cancer! ☆ ﾐ (⌒‿‿⌒)ﾉ*･゜ﾟ･*☆
I drew 2 special cards this time for whoever is reading this blog post, and the first card I picked from Karen Nash's Floramations Oracle Cards was Delicate Beauty; You are beautiful! Your gentle nature and loving heart allows your inner beauty to shine through! Never change being you! Never let anyone tell you anything different. Sometimes we hear things that make us feel unattractive or less beautiful than we are. Know that your beautiful spirit, and heart is full of love, and love is all we need. Your uniqueness is fantastic, as we bring aspects of ourselves to the world that noone else can bring, we truly find out who loves us unconditionally, and that is all we need to know.
The second card I picked from The Mystic Angels Empowerment Deck was Archangel Asariel; Contemplative Word: Reflect. Symbolism: Capricorn and the Mansions of the Moon. Every step along the Journey of Life gathers to us experiences, people, places and things that help to create our own unique story. This story becomes like a room filled with treasures within the Mansions of the Moon. Treasure, in the eye of the beholder, is glorious indeed. Since the dawn of time, you have been a priceless treasure in the eye of the One who beholds you. Share your story. Daily Mantra: Every moment of my life has made me the beautiful Light that I have become.
