Cancer Moon is in it's last slivers as the moon wanes to complete darkness tomorrow for the New Moon. In it's journey, it will contact Mercury, Saturn and Chiron that are all in water. Mercury in Cancer keeps emotional awareness around feelings as we take in information through the filter of water. As we know communication is primarily non verbal and communicating through water means that we may need to slow down. Like scuba divers or children playing tea party underwater in a pool, we resort to hand signals and gestures. We feel the embracing bouyancy, soothing sensations reminiscent of being in the womb and healing qualities of water where we experience the vibration of sound and sight more directly with a layer of water around us. We are primarily made of water so the connection to our core emotions is almost instantaneous. Saturn and Chiron have been in water trying to align us with psychological states and heal our wounds. They are requesting we get responsible, disciplined, and recognize our injuries as offering an opportunity to connect with ourselves as beings of light. If we can avoid becoming overwhelmed or down trodden through adversity, and accept the transformation from life experiences that result from unforeseen gifts and growth as we become stronger and heal. The energy from the life giving Sun is radiant as it recently transitioned to Leo. Leo rules the Sun so they are celebrating their annual reunion as Leo loves a good party. Met by Jupiter, known as the Second Sun, due to it's large size, the Sun's energy is given a steroid boost or adrenaline rush. Magnifying the qualities of being the leader, the child, the actor, the King, and the artist, we are encouraged to shine outwardly the components of ourselves that want to claim this time on stage and feel admiration and attention. As with all expressions, there is a shadow potential and with Leo this can bring about narcissism. It is truly healthy to have a vibrant ego and keeping ourselves in balance is the magic key. We have been experiencing a lot of Cardinal initiatory energy requesting us to kickstart our engines. The energy of Leo is fixed and keeps the fires burning. So whatever new endeavors, feelings or goals you may have recently embarked upon, harness the fires of Leo to keep moving into those areas with vigor while maintaining the perspective of a playful, optimistic and radiant child.
