Gibbous Moon Phase – Moon in Cancer
Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi
Today’s energy is emotionally-charged! The tendency is to feel defeated and out of resources (time, energy, money, etc). If your outlook appears gloomy, it’s time to take a rest and let things re-organize themselves. This month’s energy takes things and improves them. It changes their form. Knowing this, we can consciously focus on what we would like to change. Anytime we have difficulty, the remedy is to connect with the planet. The best way to do this is to shift our attention to nature. Being observant of nature is (fast-acting) medicine. Nature reminds us of what is real, what is true. Let’s use the emotionality of today to project our hearts to connect with the great goddess embodied as our planet. She’s a magnificent artist who has created a beautiful home for us. Matangi, the aspect of the great goddess that is at work this lunar month, loves the symbol of the heart. It is one of her signs. With Valentine’s Day approaching, there are hearts everywhere. If you notice one, think about Matangi. Or bring the energy to you by drawing hearts on a piece of paper. Matangi heals hearts and all of us could use a a little bit of help with that right now. Life is hard. If you feel yourself pulling toward the negative today, use one of the ideas in this post to shift off. Let go of the need to control and give the energy space to reorganize the emotional, mental, and physical bodies.
