Today’s Lunar Guidance For Moon In Cancer
We’re now at the lowest ebb of the lunar month so you may feel very inward and not want to leave the house. This second new moon in Cancer may evoke the shadow side of your mother coming out through your own words & actions. The aspect of the dark mother is the martyr who withholds love and blames everyone around her for her emotional state.
If you experience this, try placing your hand on your heart & breathe deeply in & out of your heart focusing on the word, ‘acceptance’. This helps the mind to release the internal fight with our external reality which is what causes internal stress.
Whilst anger is a sign our inner mother may need to speak up and set boundaries to ensure everyone contributes to avoiding one over-mothering then burning out…breathing into the heart helps us feel and release what we’re feeling so we don’t become brittle & snap at everyone.
By feeling the emotion, we can move through the experience & not stay stuck in unexpressed pain.
There is no failure in having a meltdown if that’s what’s needed to release the pressure valve. Better we dissolve than wound others with passive-aggressive behaviour.
Ultimately every part of this Earthly ride is an opportunity to observe ourselves & become more self-aware, rather than try and keep it all together in a state of righteous judgment of others.
So if you see your dark mother today, identify where & how you need more support, starting with self-acceptance…from there you can identify strategies to access more support from your household and community.
I’m excited to share with you a new FREE video series I’ve created that explains the connection between the Magdalenes, the Grail, and the ancient women’s practice, the Red Tent. To watch click here.
Blessings to your day,
