Balsamic Moon Phase: release, dream
Moon in Cancer
SUN: 01 Leo – “under emotional stress, blood rushes to a man’s head”
Higher Expression: excitement, holding strong, placing overwhelming emotions in “containers”
Lower Expression: overreacting reacting without thinking, feeling stuck, power and control issues
EARTH: 01 Aquarius – “an old adobe mission”
Higher Expression: ancient sources of information, spiritual retreat, development of the true self, endurance
Lower Expression: pushing one’s beliefs, believing one’s way is the only way, inflexible, false information
The New Moon enters overnight at 4:46 am ET/8:46 am UT at the degree of “under emotional stress, blood rushes to a man’s head.” This month we will need to “remember what the dormouse said: keep your head.”
Mars is within one degree of the New Moon, adding energy and light. At the time of the New Moon, Mars will be discharging 02 Leo, “daybreak – the luminescence of dawn in the EASTERN sky.”
Recall that the Sabian symbol for the solar-lunar year is “a woman’s hat with streamers blown by the EAST wind.”
In the Medicine Wheel, the east represents new beginnings. We are witnessing renaissance.
I will cover the New Moon in Leo, the first of two this year, in the upcoming audio recording.
For today, until the New Moon enters, release the feelings or situations that have occurred this month that you would like to pass with the month that is completing. Prepare to begin anew.
If “emotional stress” is upon you today (the Moon opposes Pluto this morning and will square the Eris Point later, so Eris Point people – those with strong natal aspects to 21 Aries – may be feeling much stress, as archontic energies are passing from us kicking and screaming), practice grounding yourself with Gaia Sophia. Let Nature restore your balance and cure the “head rush.”
See you tomorrow!
