Mercury enters Cancer- June 29- 7.24 pm EDT to July 13- 8.47 pm EDT- The planet that influences our thoughts, perceptions, and how we communicate is moving fast right now (2+ degrees a day). So if you find time is flying it could be because Mercury is living up to his title of “the winged messenger”. While he visits Cancer we have the opportunity to rethink our emotional reactions to whatever we are being challenged by. What I mean is we can become aware that we can change how we feel and therefore how we react.
Out in the backyard with puppy Prince I started re-reading “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle. This dog is a great teacher about “being in the now”. If you are having issues with too much focusing on past hurts (Cancer rules the emotions) or anxiety about the future (anxiety is emotional fear) you might want to explore Mr. Tolle’s book. It is filled with wisdom and guidance about “Being”.
When a planet visits a particular sign it is guided by the traditional, spiritual, and Soul Centered rulers of that sign. For the next 2+ weeks our thoughts are influenced by the Moon (intuitive knowing) Jupiter (expansion and growth) in Virgo (The Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness) and Neptune (illusion or illumination) in Pisces (The Oneness). Our Animal Totem guide is Flicker Woodpecker, new spiritual doorways opening up as we experience transition in our lives. The Clan Mother for this Mercury journey is Loves All Things, the mother of unconditional love (the 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams).
Cancer is connected to the vibration of 7. I call that stepping onto the Mystical Path. Use this Mercury journey to connect within and find your Sacred Center. Then you will experience who you really are. The Mystical is The Oneness.
Mars moves direct at 23 degrees Scorpio- June 29- 7.38 pm EDT- Mars has been very active as he shifts direction and very destructive. On June 24, here in the Toronto area, there was a horrific eleven car pileup on a major highway that killed four people when their cars burst into flames, yesterday there was the terrorist attack in Turkey that killed and injured scores of people, and again here in Toronto a house exploded on a quiet residential street. One person was killed and two dozen houses were damaged displacing the residents. I am sure there were other events with similar energy in the world. The shadow side of Mars in Scorpio is destruction.
The other energy Mars activates is anger. Anger is life force energy that is destroyed. As the god of war begins to move forward it is the opportunity to heal, transform, and release whatever keeps you stuck in destructive behaviour. Mars will be in Scorpio until Aug 02 and is ruled by Pluto (tearing down those things that no longer serve) in Capricorn (transforming society).
On a personal level review what you have been feeling (frustration and anger) since Mars went retrograde on April 17 and make a commitment to change how you feel and how you react to events in your life. When you live from your Sacred Center reaction is transformed into being responsive. Our Animal Totem guide while Mars is in Scorpio is Snake, shedding the old. The Sacred Animal for Scorpio is The Phoenix, transformation and rebirth. In other words FREEDOM. As Mars moves forward he is trine (ease and flow) Chiron in Pisces (healing and release). All you have to do is believe you can change how you feel.
