The second New Moon of July occurs on the 31st at 21:13 MT just hours before August begins. Moon lands in its own sign, Cancer, transiting Pushya nakshatra at the time of emptiness. Cancer is full right now with Sun, Venus, and debilitated Mars- navigating this emotional, watery sign. Mercury has momentarily dipped back into Gemini, but will return to Cancer within days. Jupiter gives his gaze to Cancer, his sign of exaltation, gifting this intense combination of planets with some much needed sattva and wisdom.
Pushya nakshatra is ruled by Brihaspati, another name for Jupiter, giver of nourishment and powerful support through wisdom. This star supports balance through expansion and contraction, opening and closing. It is an important time to acknowledge grief, undigested emotions and struggles, while also gathering the necessary support, wisdom and clarity necessary for more nourishment in your life. Open your hear and clarify your emotional body wisdom.
Cancer is the sign of all things emotional body, as well as mother, heart, land and home. Watery insights and deep feelings emerge with this sign. Use the cycle ahead to be honest with your emotions. Clear and release undigested or stagnant grief. Gather support, guidance and wisdom for healing and transformation. Acknowledge boundary work and what needs are surfacing.
What needs to be restructured in your relationships so you can receive more nourishment? Where are you saying YES where you should be saying NO? What important wisdom is your emotional body trying to tell you? Be proactive and make sure your action steps align with your deepest needs.
This Creative Ritual will also help you work directly with your challenges- emotion or otherwise. Take your challenge into your creative process and see what develops!
Movement Exploration. What emotion are you feeling? Is it anger, depression, frustration, chaos, uncertainty? Start dancing this emotion. What does it feel like in your body? Do the "dance of anger" for example. What emerges as you do your anger dance?! Remember to let sounds out! Move and develop your dance for at least minutes. When you feel a sense of closure, ask yourself these questions:
I sense, I feel, I imagine.
Create an image of your emotion. What does it feel like? Put it on paper using colors, textures and shapes. Create an image that expresses your experience with this emotion and whatever emerged in your dance. Spend at least 5 to 20 minutes creating this image. I suggest using paints or craypas and a large piece of paper. Title your image. In your journal or on the back of the drawing answer this question:
If your image could speak what would it say?
Harvesting. Answer these baseline statements and questions in your journal once you have completed the previous steps.
What am I opening to?
What am I closing to?
Recycle this process whenever strong emotions emerge. Remember they arrive to give you important messages. Listen carefully and honor them with deeper listening. What is the emotions telling you? What do you need for deeper nourishment in your life?
