Moon Magic: Full Moon in Cancer

Each New and Full Moon I dig into lunar astrology to write my newsletter and to set the theme for the associated Turtle Journey. I am not an astrologer, but I have enjoyed learning about this one aspect of astrology and share some of what I am discovering here.

Today’s Full Moon is in Cancer, barely. A few hours after the Moon is full she will drift into Leo. Until then, though, the Moon is in the sign she rules and all of Cancer’s watery, emotional energy will be amplified. You may desire emotional support and comfort today.

The Moon is full when she is opposite the Sun. Planets in opposition are energetically at odds. The Sun in Capricorn wants to be organized and practical and can be unsympathetic to your emotional state today. The Moon is also opposite Pluto, activating power and control issues. I feel that the theme of the day is, “Crying won’t get you anywhere.”

The thing is, I am tired of hearing that my emotions do not matter to the people in charge. Stop telling me that I should stick to the science and think about the economy and human convenience when my heart says that land or that species is worth protecting. We should not ignore the science, nor should we ignore our hearts.

My take on the Moon’s energy today is a call to lead from your heart. Find a like-hearted community who can hold you in grief or anger or whatever comes up for you, then, with their support, tell the world why you care. Let the Full Moon in Cancer validate everything you feel.

If you are not receiving my newsletter, please sign up. I promise not to spam your inbox. I send a newsletter only before each New and Full Moon with a reflection on the astrology and an invitation to the Turtle Journey – a 30-minute shamanic journey experience via conference call – and other upcoming events and classes.

Podcast Ep 38: Where the Wild Things Were

I ditched the yoga practice this episode so I could bring your attention to some of the wildlife that has been affected by the Amazon wildfires, Hurricane Dorian, and the roll back of the endangered species regulations in the United States. I end with a meditation on the power inherent in the web of life. I needed to write and guide this meditation as a step in the process of healing my frustration and powerlessness, and I hope my words bring you peace.

If you would like to chat about this episode or learn more about yoga, Shamanic Reiki, wildlife conservation, or other ways we can bring healing to all of the beings on our beautiful planet Earth, join us in the Shamanic Flow Circle group on Facebook or sign up for the newsletter. Please consider becoming a Patreon sponsor and help me purchase needed equipment and supplies for my wild turtle rehabilitation clinic.
