Disseminating Moon Phase: share

Moon in Cancer

Ruling Mahavidya: Kamala (Goddess of Lotus Blossom)

Skill: release the desire for control

Negative Imprint: obsession with details and routine, prematurity, misleading others, emotional manipulation, carelessness

Positive Imprint: mustering, enlarged scope of awareness, excitement, hope, being in the right place at the right time, open-minded, focus, passion

As the week of intense astrological energies continues, today's intensity brings things to life.  The desire for form is brewing.

The desire to express and bring things into form is strong because Venus is moving into the same place in the sky as Saturn.  This combination of energies opens new possibilities, new horizons, and new beginnings that are sourced in our deepest desires.

Under this energetic, we desire practicality and reliability, especially in relationships.  This can be taken to the "lowest" extreme with efforts to control partners.  Power and control dynamics often result with Venus and Saturn.  This happens when people project their own shadow sides - their own unintegrated fears - onto people they love.  This ruins things.

Saturn isn't quite what it used to be, so we won't give it more power and control than it warrants.  We are in command of what we want, think, say, and do - not an outside force.  Harness the energy for yourself.

Each of the four elements are working today to open us open to something greater.  The element of water is washing over us with new feelings and beliefs.  The element of earth is magnetizing us with people, places, and things that support our soul's highest desire.  The element of fire is transforming us from the inside, giving us courage to be bold.  And the element of wind streaks by us, turning our heads and inspiring us toward something key to our future.

If one (or all) of these elements strikes your fancy, consider honoring it in some way.  It can be as simple as acknowledging the water that comes out of your faucet.  We tend to de-nature water because it easily comes to us through manmade systems.  Don't forget what it is and from whom it comes.  Re-connect.

This energy is fast and furious and can even feel like a barrage.  Growth is happening.  Growth implies change.  Change is uncomfortable.  But we are getting better at it.

It is definitely a day of kundalini rising, Kamala-style.  Kamala is a wisdom goddess, one of the faces of Mother Earth, Gaia Sophia.  Kamala is fiery and burns hot.  If you are open to it, she will expand your perception and experience of the world.  She will bring your senses to life far beyond hedonism.  She will take you into a richer, earthier place that provides profound connection.

This energy is fleeting today, so grab as much of it as you can.  Embrace what is seeking its way to you.  Release the need for control and you'll feel the gentle kiss of the goddess.
