Happy Summer 2013!
June 21 – The Sun just went into Cancer Friday and it was the first day of Summer in the northern hemisphere
June 26 – Jupiter is going in the sign of Cancer and Mercury is going retrograde in Cancer. . . . hmmmm . . . that’s a lot of home, family, children, nurturing energy. Quite a lot indeed.
It’s a time to expand your home and take care of your parents and children, or not, maybe it’s time to let them go. Whatever is required for balance and healing in the home. It might be time to move to a new home, or put some color on the walls or make a studio in the home that feels more conducive to the work you want to do now.
This is a time of connecting to a feeling of family in any given circumstance and creating a feeling of care and nurturing in any family situation you find yourself, including the extended family of the community. Because of course there may be family circumstances you find yourself in that feel upsetting or uncomfortable or unfair or reminds you of your inner wounded child. This summer we can heal emotionally and step into the next more mature version of ourselves.
It will allow a more generous nurturing of whichever garden you’ve been planting. Now is the time to tend to the seeds that sprouted in the Spring, they have broken forth and reveal a place where good feeling thoughts are emerging and need to be watered and fed and loved.
The theme centers on being thankful and therefore mindful of the abundance offered by “the home”. The home we live in, the home we came from, the home we aspire to, the business in the home, the planet we call home and the pit of our stomach where our awareness “lives” inside our bodies. All these things will demand expanded attention and growth. And it is a great time in general for our Cancer brothers and sisters.
We can be our own best generous fabulous parents at this time and show as an example how good it feels to be safe under the watchful eye of someone who absolutely loves and adores you. This is the cure for being angry or upset with parents or children. Beware of temper tantrums, child custody battles and evil step parents.
We don’t need to clutch onto every piece of emotional nourishment always thinking there’s not enough. We can create independent value and personal growth out of any circumstance that life presents.
The Earth “peoples” as Alan Watts says, the Earth is our Mother, the Sun is our Father, we can create right relationship with the mere “humans” that we’re involved with and not expect so much from them in a way we never thought possible before.
July 17 – Saturn the planet of accomplishment in Scorpio the sign of resources is harmonious and loving to Neptune planet of dreams in Pisces the sign of compassion and they both are wonderful and kind to Jupiter planet of expansion in Cancer sign of the home – this is a moment to light a candle and bring an awakened prayer to the possibility of turning a dream into reality, the business of creativity, the manifestation of balance between expansion and contraction and vision. It’s magical and special and rare.
