Today we will receive a new moon in the sign of Cancer, while the sun is currently in Cancer as well! Cancer is ruled by the Moon, so intuition will be running deep today, and we must listen to it and allow for it to speak to us. The sign of Cancer is typically associated with words like: emotional, moody, protective, nurturing, intuitive, maternal, domestic and touchy. Cancer naturally rules the 4th house, which is the house that defines our domestic affairs, the nature of our home and often one of our parents. So this may be a great time to tap into our home lives and renew our values and goals there.
Our original home though is our body. Our body is truly the home of ALL the atoms and molecules that make us who we are. The body houses are bones, flesh, muscles, thoughts, and breath. Our breath being our key to life and our connection to something outside of our body homes. During a new moon we naturally have energy favoring new habits, new forms and new changes. We are able to tap into this energy if we intend to. The new moon in Cancer prompts a certain energy or sway towards home life and towards the feelings listed above. Our bodies store all emotions, thoughts and memories. They are stored in organs, cells, muscles and body parts and while we may not even be conscious of them, they are there. Listen to the body and listen to the wisdom of the body that you cannot necessarily see with your 2 physical eyes or hear with your 2 physical ears, but that you are still able to sense and work from. What is it telling you? What is affecting your body home? What is making your body home not reach its optimal existence?
It may be time to change something, and it might be something small or something big. There is a quote attributed to Albert Einstein that says,
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results
If we do the same thing over and over again, we are reaping the same exact results. And if there is an area in your life that you want to change or improve, it has to start with doing something different. That something different can be anything - it might be the way you think about it, it may be a small minor change or a large change. It has to start somewhere though.
Today I challenge you to start somewhere towards your goals. It might be scary, but fear is inevitable and once confronted will cease to paralyze you ( I have to tell myself this daily as fear is constantly trying to make a way into my home).
Choose to do something different everyday. Try something different, wake up at a different time, take a new route to work in the morning, start thinking about things differently, and see what doorways it leads you to.
