Return, return to the Here & Now.

Root yourself in this moment.
Set your internal compass.
Come home to yourself.

Cancer Full Moon
December 22, 2018 9:48 am PT
Hours after the Solstice, the full moon comes to fruition. Luminous Cancer Moon opposite Capricorn Sun highlights a sharpened awareness of our needs and the needs of our world. Now we must integrate self nurturing and self discipline. Mercury and Jupiter conjunct in Sagittarius calls for adventure and offers an expansive perspective. For some, too many distractions and wasteful choices. There is a reactivity, feelings run high and righteousness comes easy. People want to be heard. Sincere seekers are ignited. Sometimes it’s all talk.
In two weeks, the new moon is a Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. A rumbling in the foundation.
“Be kinder to yourself. And then let your kindness flood the world.” Pema Chodron
☽ Solstice Full Moon Reflections ☼
Visualize your body as a tree, your roots planted firmly in the earth, your branches stretching into the sky and your sturdy trunk holding your core center.
How may I hold my own and other’s tenderness with steadiness?
What is nourishing discipline and how may I apply it?
How may I respond to others without neglecting myself?
