We have a full moon lunar eclipse on the 10th in the sign of Cancer. If you think you’ve been emotional lately, wait for it cause this full moon, in it’s home sign, looks to be bringing the emotions big time. Cancer is a water sign and water signs ask us to pay attention to what we’re feeling and this includes our psychic senses and intuition–all of it’s going to be on high alert. Tune in to this space and listen to what it’s telling you; dreams, reveries, daydreams, sudden insights, and repeating messages are going to give you insight into whats been unconsciously digging at, pushing, or motivating you, maybe even what you need to let go of. The only way you can be aware of any of these keys coming forward though, is to be present in this moment. Even if this week you only pay attention to how many times you dip out mentally (either by freaking out about the future or staying stuck in the past), you can begin to realize how you’re giving your power away by not being here in this very moment; this would be an important juncture, considering that acknowledgement has given you the ability to get that power back.
Cancer stands for all thing family, home, ancestry, roots, and mother, so know that these themes will be on the table, too. Be aware, be ready, and most importantly, be compassionate with yourself on whatever pops up for you. Treat yourself like a loving mother would to her beloved child and take care of your emotional needs.
Working with water in any capacity might bring insight as well, so consider scrying in a bowl of water, taking a healing or releasing bath, speaking with a therapist for resolution and allowing your feelings to come forward in a safe space, or swimming as a part of your exercise regimen, all the while drinking enough water to keep yourself hydrated. The worst thing you could do right now is be afraid of your emotions or insights. These are gifts given to you to help in assisting your way through this world; it’s your GPS system. Besides, if you decide to tap in, allow your stuff to come forward, and then empower yourself with what you learn, you’ll be doing this Capricorn season right by working smarter, not harder 💖
So how can we work with the energy of this week? My advice is this: Use the magic of this full moon and put a bowl of water out to soak up all the goodness. You can use that water to scry in, add to your bath, water plants or your alter plants with, or even drink yourself. If you make any sprays, you can add it to bring in some more oomph corresponding with the element of that moon. Since we have a water moon, you can expect your sprays (and whatever else you use it for) to be cleansing and renewing. Extra points if you add some crystals to it, like rainbow moonstone, pearls, abalone shell, coral, ocean jasper, or aquamarine.
Go ahead and pick a card from above (pick one, two, or all three cards–choose what you’re drawn to). The top card is the overarching theme for everyone and it’s something to keep in mind or to remember, no matter what energy shows up for you as the week goes on. The stone you see in the picture above is ocean jasper. Like all Jaspers, Ocean Jasper alleviates stress and induces tranquility. Its cleansing effect eliminates negative energy and stabilizes the aura. It makes an ideal worry or rubbing stone for soothing the nerves and increasing one’s focus, and is a wonderful stone for banishing nightmares or harmful thoughts. A polished sphere of Ocean Jasper is particularly conducive for meditation, and is greatly enhanced by soft silver candlelight or moonlight. Use Ocean Jasper as a talisman of patience, for oneself as well as for others. It enkindles a gentle and gradual release of pent-up anger and clears emotional blockages. Orbicular Jaspers are “taking care of business stones” and encourage one to view each circular mark as a sign of a project or detail that needs to be addressed. They aid in the acceptance of responsibility and are particularly supportive of pursuits based on service to others. Ocean Jasper is a marvelous stone for healers and counselors to nurture themselves as they help others, and to be more empathetic to others’ emotional and mental needs while still remaining objective in their work.
