Day Twenty-Seven: Floodgates of Release

Waning Moon in Cancer

Sun in Leo

Slide1

Posted during the planetary hour of Mercury (communication)

The Moon entered the astrological sign of Cancer at 12:30am this morning. We are back to the Cardinal (beginning) modality and a sign that is ruled by the Moon and her mysteries.  The Sun is in Leo, astrological sign that is ruled by the Sun.  This means both are in their exalted or powerful signs with compatible energies supporting.  This also means that during this time that the Moon remains in Cancer the elemental directives are that of  the initial flow of Water (Cardinal Cancer) and stable Fire (Fixed Leo).  Back to the heated waters with those fires being placed  exactly where they are needed to quicken with the spark of creation.

When the Moon is in Cancer, emotions are running high and not always well placed.  The waning or contractive energy of the Moon’s phase provides the vehicle to move into those dark recesses of your emotions and gather them in a new way.  If not careful, the damming up of those emotions through inhibition and censoring can produce so much pressure that they will find the weakest spot and break free.

Today seemed soft in flow.  There was a gentleness in the air that made me think of the excitement and emotions present while waiting for a child to be born.  So much moves through your mind, but the main point of pressure is in how you feel while waiting,  The beauty of this is that you do not need to be the one giving birth. Friends, relatives, hospital workers, complete strangers and whole nations- as was evidenced by baby Prince George’s birth- all feel the same type of emotions and anticipation.  These are the emotions that hold the promise of something new being birthed from their feeding and quickening.

And, when the cresting of anticipation becomes more than can be borne;  the floodgates open and a purposeful and directed flow feeds the deeper source from whence it came.  Today I am reminded by these feelings of how much work remains of the refining and fine tuning of how  I allow my own emotions to flow  and what they will carry along caught up in their currents.  I am also reminded to offer up gratitude for how far I have come in being attentive to mind and heart.

May love flow
In my heart
May the waters
Of creation flow
Through my actions.

May what I grow
Expand and grow
May the barriers
I have created
Hold fast and strong.

May love be birthed
In the water’s release
May the flood gates open
And the streams of pure
Intuitive sight move
Like twin rivers
Back to the Source.
