Vulnerable Boundaries (Cancer Full Moon)

The nurturing sign of Cancer is sitting amongst rather crazy planetary energies. With Uranus and Pluto doing their thing, this Cancer Full Moon has a particularly intense vibe about it. The questions are really hitting some vulnerable spots.

What came to me was the concept of Home, either literal or metaphorical, and even Home within ourselves.


This Full Moon...

Have you figured out what personal sanctuary means to you?
.
What in your home needs to change?
.
How are you asked to change in your home?
.
Have you given up your uniqueness for Home?
.
What nurturing do you no longer need, what must you find?
.
Are you bringing your 'higher calling' into your mundane life?

We are asked to be vulnerable yet to retain boundaries. To be wild and go deep, yet bring that into the realm of our everyday lives. There is an energy around that has been lifting and pushing us, but there is also a tendency to push further than what is authentic or safe.


Put emotional ideals into practice.
Find independence within your boundaries.
Remain true to your Self.
Retain beneficial structures.


A Full Moon shines light on the weak spots, the cracks, whatever we have yet been blind to. This one will make us feel exposed indeed. We can retreat from the harsh light back into the cosiness that we have created, and perhaps that's what you need right now, or we can use it as a window of opportunity.

What do you see?

  6. bringing my higher calling into my mundane life... this resonates with me so much right now. it's been on my mind as of late. linking this train of thought to the post from ink + chai is like a message to not just think about it, but rather to take action. to take steps to bring in my higher calling.
    i believe in signs and that the universe presents things to us when we need them and when we are ready for them. i believe the universe is working via you and your insightful posts!

    1. I believe that when we seek our own higher selves are able to see answers anywhere. Everything connected....

  7. I hadn't realized until the past couple days (no mistake there) how much resentment I have been hanging onto with my husband. I've seen how I have been persecuting him with my anger in small insidious ways and as a result, have allowed our relationship to suffer. In these last couple days since this weight has been lifted, since I've let this anger go, we are both changed. And once again, I am humbled by how much I have yet relearn.

    The question of what this next year will mean to me has also been revealed in a word. I don't know how it will evolve from here but it's a start :).
    Happy New Year my friend!

    1. Resentment is an awful and insidious venom. We can kid ourselves for so long it's justified. and however true that may be, the trick is that we think we're making others aware of the part in the inflictions, rather than holding everyone back and adding more pain.

      It truly is a deep peace when resentment is gone. because of real emotional wrongs (as opposed to imagined!), I took me years to let my own resentments go. i can't say I'm 'happier', because the situation remains the same, but at least I no longer carry the burden of resentment.

      Yes, with resentment we forget that we have become the inflicter.

      So glad to hear of your own awakening with this.
