6/13 ~ Mercury (learning & mind) ~trine~ Jupiter (education & consciousness):
This energy is great for expanding your mind, learning something new or taking a class. It’s time to plan for the future and start getting organized. However, you may feel less disciplined and more creative, which is fine in the beginning, but eventually focus & discipline will have to be engaged to ground your new ideas, thoughts or concepts. You have to ask your Self, ‘How bad do you want it?’ If you are self-aware, awake & alert, you will be able to see (and seize) the opportunities as they present themselves. It may ‘appear’ to be luck, but it’s really more that you were in alignment with the Cosmos, present & positive, and ultimately, able to trust & follow your instincts. Practice, there is no perfection. Being optimistic & looking for opportunity in every experience will magnetize the positive and naturally repel the negative, leading right where you want to be! Take advantage of this good energy to connect to whatever it is you are trying to create in your life at this time.
6/13 ~ Mercury (communication) ~square~ Neptune (dissolution):
This is a mixed blessing energy. On one hand, it’s good for spiritual study and giving your dreams a little energy (if your schedule permits). On the other hand, it makes for major miscommunications between people. Try to think before speaking, because if it’s possible to misunderstand or not ‘get it’ altogether, it will happen this week. Be careful not to let “longing” for your dreams to come true, distort your judgment and mislead you into believing the illusion. With this energy, some people will deliberately deceive and others have to be careful not to be misled. Stick to the facts or stay quiet, for now. You may even be inclined to withhold information to avoid a confrontation – don’t do it. Communicate with your Self and God today, otherwise plan to be very clear in explaining yourself to others (humans) so there are no misunderstandings.
6/15 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~oppose~ Saturn (physical limits & definition of reality):
This is an annual process of development. The Sun makes it personal and about you the individual. Saturn helps move your timeline along and build the literal aspects of life, the basics of providing for yourself (food, shelter etc) and your personal limitations. What renewed aspect of Self got activated about 6-months ago and how do you want that to fully develop over the next 6-months? This is a potent midpoint, the most powerful course-correcting time in any cycle, this one being an annual meeting between Sun & Saturn, a check-point between you and your responsibilities. Each year, you evolve, some years more consciously than others so this is a good time to check in with your own personal definitions of what you are or are no longer responsible for. Often, this energy activates a push-pull between who you are and who you want to be; between what you want to do and what you have to do. My age-old advice is to: do what you gotta do so you can do what you wanna do. And while it may not be the easiest path, it’s usually worth it for the peace of mind it brings. You may swing between extremes of fulfilling all your obligations to the neglect of your Truth & Purpose -or- neglecting your obligations and doing whatever you choose, which only means those obligations will be there when you get to them and they will have most likely increased by the time you do. Balance is the key! Practice, there is no perfection and it’s time to practice handling business before pleasure.
This leads so beautifully to the article I want to share with you below. But first, I want to go a little deeper into the Sun/Saturn activation because it is so useful for you to recognize any pattern in your literal reality. The Signs add the energy & lessons and in this case, it is Gemini/Sagittarius. This is the third/final activation before Saturn moves into Capricorn and the axis (meaning energy & lessons to integrate) will shift to Cancer/Capricorn. Dates of Sun in Gemini Opposite Saturn in Sag: 5.23.2015 ~ 6.3.2016 ~ 6.15.2017 ~ on/around these dates, the Air/Fire combo was in play. How well do you do with those Signs & Elements? In general, the lesson here is how well you are expressing the Truth of who you are. Opposition always illuminates any extremes and activates a push-pull within and around you. Because of Saturn, this gets pretty literal. However, I want to remind you that because it is Gemini/Sag, it’s all rooted in what you “believe” to be possible for your reality and that has likely shifted dramatically in recent years. So I want to encourage you to pray/meditate on it and really clear out any distractions to your goals at this time because you will be rewarded. Change your mind and your reality will follow ; -)
That said, I believe I am supposed to be in Mt Shasta for Summer Solstice this year, so I’m getting as much support & guidance to you as I can before I am *Off the Grid* – YAY!! I promise to report on all the *magical experiences* when I return, however, I have to submit my Earth Medicine School homework by June 30th plus July 1st brings my BDay, so I’m not entirely sure you’ll hear too much more Cancer info (besides Monthly Audio Update) before I do Leo. BIG Hugs of Gratitude to ALL – those of you who take the time to read my writing and share the journey, as well as all of you who have contributed this month to help with the 3D process of getting to the mountain and all of you who I know are holding space energetically for me to be there! I’m taking you ALL with me, in my heart! OneLove
As we delve into what we believe is possible, this becomes an important processing time that can/should be done prior to the decision-making that comes with the Turn of the Wheel. Summer Solstice activates the time of maximum Light and we are supported to fuel our systems with this Light and it will support & accelerate our progress. This is what we mean when we go to Mt Shasta, Earth’s Root Chakra, to Anchor the Light Body. We are fortifying the connection to Source and we are practicing holding, moving in/out and expressing more Light as individuals. In addition, as we gathering two-or-more for this express purpose, it becomes invaluable nutrient that Blesses Mama Earth, as well as the Child who realizes they have to do everything themselves, but you do not have to do it alone!
Cancer: Assimilate the New & Eliminate the Old
Which May Mean … Sideways, Backwards … THEN Forward!
Cancer time always brings us face-to-face with some major choices & decisions which will likely require some form of *Assimilation & Elimination*. Cancer‘s gift is processing all that passes through your system, taking in the nutrient (that makes your system work) and any excess or toxins that cannot be “assimilated” must be “eliminated”. If you do not eliminate them, then blockages (and some form of dis-ease or discomfort) will occur. Quality nourishment (or what you take in to your system) is vital and if you have held on to anything that has not been put to proper use, then you may be particularly toxic (within or without), and you will have to cleanse & heal first, before your can rebuild or fortify your structure (Capricorn).
Digestion, Assimilation & Elimination are truly Cancer‘s domain and one or all may require periodic “time outs” to process all that has come through your system over the last 6-months -to- 1-year. This year may bring much more clearing than the usual annual process. Keep in mind that, on one or many levels, you have released the past, you’ve cleared space and created new flow that must also be properly directed ~ this is a 2-way process (in/out). Your Higher Self does this naturally, but ego/personality has preferences and can cause problems along the way. Your Soul has been very busy working on your behalf, positioning you for greatness, stripping the weakness and letting you know the areas of your life which have been in a famine (for however long, for whatever reason). Cancer time beckons, “come out of the storm (of life), dry off by a warm fire (your heart), replenish your Self with light-filled food and quality rest!” You are no good to your team, in fact you are a danger and liability to your team, if you are not centered, balanced, properly fortified and fully rested. When you ARE, then you can be alert and focused, strong and productive.
In more practical terms, Cancer is the time to restore your energy, replenish your physical and spiritual nutrients, stabilize your foundation, clear your physical body and personal space of the past, any debris and clutter and assess your inner and outer productivity with special attention to strengthening and fortifying yourself so you can CREATE come the next cycle (Leo time). If you work the Cancer energy to its fullest potential, you would stabilize within, clearing the channel to open the floodgates (allow flow), access your own deep well/reservoir of energy and resources (use what you’ve got), and ignite the fire of creativity (be heart-centered and passionate about what you are doing) so you can fulfill your potential and, ultimately, be of Service to your Self, your family, your community and the planet.
Cancer, being ruled by the Moon, is serious about letting you know that the natural cycles work best when you HONOR THEM, rather than resist! When you fight Nature (or any natural process), you will receive your due lesson unless or until you surrender and realize that (in general) “mom and dad” (Cancer/Capricorn) are right more than they are wrong. You have to give the deep emotions (which are being stirred at this time) a structure and purpose or you’ll drown in them. With every penetrating realization, allow it to pass through your consciousness with the last thought being of the Light … then, get the lesson and the blessing! from whatever memory, experience, choice, decision, and of course, feeling that comes up at this time … and CLAIM your Truth, Infinite Light and the Highest possible outcome.
Keep in mind that whatever you’re feeling can be useful. Trust that feelings are one of the major ways of communicating within, your moods are inner messengers bringing information in to your conscious awareness. Often, we are bombarded by outer messages, very few of which are true or worthy, but simply there to DISTRACT you and/or DISCONNECT you from Source altogether. Your heart – your gut – your core – DEEP WITHIN your being, buried under layers and years of trying to work from the outside-IN … is your Inner Compass just waiting for you to excavate and reconnect with it so it can serve Its true purpose of guiding you on your Path. Working from the outside-IN is not how it works, you have to work from the inside-OUT. Yes, it is a glorious day for those of us who feel “backwards” in the 3D world (I know I am not alone ;-)) I get the distinct impression we were just ‘before our time‘ and maybe now the Universe is ready! We must return to Heart-Centered, Empathic, Intuitive, Receptive, Divine Feminine way of LIVING … which is to Create ~ Contain ~ Nurture ~ and Protect … and we’re back to Cancer energy and lessons.
Often, ‘how you start is how you finish‘ and Cancer Initiates this quarter of the year (June-Sept) ~ Summer Solstice -to- Fall Equinox. There is deep value (and potency) in this (extended) moment in time. Cancer/Leo/Virgo prepares us for upcoming Libra/Scorpio/Sagittarius which will complete the Annual Cycle. Despite 3D obligations, clocks, calendars, families, bosses etc all competing for your time and attention, I urge you to put on your ‘invisibility cloak’ and make time for several periodic TIME OUTS (or one-long-one). Take some time to soak in the Light (before it recedes), bask, and while you’re doing that, reflect on all that you’ve created with your energy and efforts over the course of the last 6-months -to- 1-year. Here’s some questions to prime the pump …
♥ How well did your efforts PRODUCE?
♥ How well did your investments (of all resources:
time, energy & money) PROVIDE?
♥ What is the QUALITY of your return thus far?
♥ Are there areas of your life BLOSSOMING with overflow,
bounty & beauty (and multiplying like crazy)?
♥ Are there still other areas of your life WILTING,
dying on the vine, not being nourished properly
or receiving enough Light?
♥ What do you WANT to do?
♥ What does your HEART say to do?
♥ What ‘FEELS’ right at the moment?
♥ What should you NOT attempt to continue to grow (in your life)?
♥ What should you pay some special attention to
because you KNOW it will bear fruit
if you would just give it some quality,
direct & focused energy and attention?
This time, like all times, is a very good one
if we but know what to do with it. -Emerson
I’d also like to remind you that the Cancer/Capricorn Lunation happens right around Solstice time (Solstice 6/20 and Cancer Super New Moon 6/23 and Capricorn Full Moon 7/9), making it even more imperative that you make any decisions regarding ‘course correction’ during this quarter. With the current & recent Retrogrades, you will have a unique opportunity (in this potent One Year of New/Initiation) to regroup this Cancer season. Summer Solstice and the Sun moving in to Cancer Initiates the second half of the year every year and activates a deeply transformative Integration process with Pluto in Capricorn. Use this time, at least initially, to gather courage, cultivate integrity, tweak your plan and prepare for the delicious (and fun) creativity you will have access to next month.
