Moon is now waning in Cancer, so don’t be surprised if you want to stay super comfy today with soft clothes, time at home & nurturing foods & drinks.

Cancer is the sign of the Moon Mother – one who holds a space for us to feel truly seen, heard, accepted & understood so we can process our feelings & emotions.

The more we have this in our lives, the more balanced we are emotionally. The the more calm we feel, we’re able to deal with the emotional high’s & low’s of others with patience & compassion.

Usually, one person in a family or workplace does this more for everyone else…if that is you, it’s vital you also have a regular time & place where you are afforded the same support or your own nervous system will show greater wear & tear.

Traditionally, this is what women do for others & because it isn’t physical it can’t be measured, so people can take it for granted & devalue the real contribution given. Sometimes men can have a very strong mother archetype if they identified more with their Mums growing up (common if their Dads were distant or abusive).

Cancer rules community – communion with others which gifts us a deep sense that we belong. This is a foundation human need. The more we feel we belong for who we truly are (not for what we do), the happier we are. (In Denmark where there are more people living in intentional communities they also have the highest stats for personal happiness per capita.)

If you’re not living in a residential community, consider how you can give yourself a hit of community on a regular basis.

– Get to know your neighbours & share chores & resources to make life easier
– Have community dinners
– Start a monthly gathering, such as a Red Tent gathering for the women at new moon & a men’s gathering each month when the sun moves into a new sign.

Just as it takes a village to raise a child, we continue to need the input of a community if we are to feel truly nourished on all levels by all types of love – from elders, babies, children, sisters & brothers. Then we don’t unconsciously expect one person to meet all our needs & resent them when they don’t.

We start the next Red Tent course in 8 days! Here is the link to find out more:

Blessings on your day,
