New Moon in Cancer // BUT FIRST from a year ago…
It has been a whole year since I attempted my first Personal Manifesto. After looking back at last years July New Moon post I have gotten inspired to REFLECT and TWEAK my living personal manifesto. You can find MY WARM UP QUESTIONS HERE and HERE and then my PERSONAL MANIFESTO HERE from last year.
If you are inspired to write one yourself check out last years blog entry on creating a personal manifesto HERE!!
ALRIGHT…so let’s reflect for two secs…and then we will get to the MOON!
Hum…I’ve lived up to it better than I thought I would. I have been doing yoga nearly everyday with an unlimited yoga membership…I have started doing me by way of making what I want to eat when I want to eat. I’ve put love first in everything that I do. I PASSED my pediatric echo registry ON THE FIRST TRY! I have been hit and miss on the writing “everyday” and the blogging BUT I did start a little fiction story last October….I’m working on it occasionally…I should really reserve time to it everyday…but you know, LIFE. I haven’t painted or drawn much…BUT I PLAN to start again on my trip to the mountains next week. Now that I have passed my registry I don’t have anything to worry about so art and writing should come more freely. FREEDOM….aaah that. Yeeah, I’m still working on that. Told you that one was the hardest…although I do feel like I am more free the more I do me….so there is that.
NOW ON TO THE NEW MOON!
The moon is in Cancer, the Crab, tonight…time for a new beginning and a new intention. Steven Forrest had the perfect analogy to this Zodical Sign in his book The Inner Sky…he talked about how the Crab must build a shell to survive. Within the Crab’s shell is where the transformative work takes place. It is where you grow. Where you do the internal work. Once you’ve nurtured yourself…and grown too big to fit in your old shell…you must shed the old for the new. Molting. Shed. NEW.
Which made me think about our structure…our bones…they are constantly changing….every seven years we have a new set of bones. We are constantly changing…root down and flow with that.
So tonight….think about internal change. Have you been doing the internal work? Have you lived up to your manifesto? Have you served yourself good? Make it an intention to do that. For the next couple of days think about your intention and maybe tweak an old personal manifesto or write a new one!
Cancer Key Words:
Water: “I am rooted, but I FLOW.” -Virginia Woolf
Nurture: Cancer is like a nurturing Mother…just be careful not to be TOO overbearing.
Internal Work: That means…listen to what your soul has to say and do the internal work to connect to your soul. Pray. Connect to God. Connect. Connect. Connect.
Personal Manifesto: WRITE ONE! There is no time limit…just answer the warm up questions HERE if anything!
Love & Moonlight,
PS. “I am rooted, but I flow.” -Virginia Woolf was my 17 of 100 Days of Affirmation entry!
