July 1st marks our half way point of the year. Even though our individual New Year begins with our birthday, and the halfway point is 6 months later, the pull of the collective conscious is powerful in marking these important times. The full moon makes its entrance on the first day in July with a resounding here I am, let’s rejoice in all that is good and with it a feeling of it is time to embrace experience and get moving.
Today’s full moon message is to challenge ourselves to moving beyond our normal comfortable boundaries with the internal question of “Why can’t I do/have/be all that I imagine?” thoughts. Open your heart to sharing and receiving.
And yet with all the hopeful enthusiasm to surge forward towards the life you want there is an underlying frustration that can either block you or inspire you to get moving. The full moon is loosely connected to Mars and Pluto, how well you can get out of your own way will become apparent in two weeks at the next new moon.
This full moon is a time to release fear and frustration from the past; let go and move forward. Cancer wants to be safe and can retreat from situations that challenge your comfort zone. Where do you play safe in life because you fear failed expectations or hurt feelings? Now is a time to challenge old patterns and break free from the cloak that once brought you safety but now is a deterrent to your growth.
Mercury is the strongest planet in the sky now (in its rulership), and is in a harmonious connection between Uranus and the Jupiter/Venus conjunction. In quiet moments you can have sudden insights that open up new possibilities to love and a happy heart. This can come through suddenly recognizing what your next step is, or from clearing out negative thoughts that have blocked your path.
