Just before dawn MDT on June 21, 2018, we entered the realm of Cancer, where everything grows. Cancer holds close to its heart that which it loves, and it nourishes what needs to be fed.
It feels everything. It knows what is needed to support growth and sustain life.
The lizard on the lichen-covered rock drinks in the warmth of the sunniest day of the year, completely trusting the present moment even as it dreams its future.
Seeds sowed in the spring bear flowers that open their petals to bees, butterflies, and birds. Water from recent rains quenches the forest and fills hollowed out places in cliffs high in the mountains for ground squirrels, warblers, and dark-eyed juncos.
Ruled by the moon, Cancer is the ultimate feminine goddess calling us home to her heart and hearth.
What nourishment do we seek now?
How willing are we to give what we receive to others that need it?
If we were to dwell in the space of our hearts, and then think and speak from there, what would we say?
In the warm days to come, as the moon waxes full in Capricorn next week and two eclipses in July command our attention, we’ll do well to revisit these questions and journey to our hearts and let love guide our thoughts, words, and steps…
Here’s to turning toward the light and growing…together.
