Go gently with yourself

The Moon is waxing to full in opposition to the Sun over the next 3 days.  The full Moon may take place on a certain day but the energy builds and hits a peak of intensity at the exact opposition between Sun and Moon.  This time we have the sun in the sign of home, family, emotions and nurturing, Cancer opposing the Moon conjunct retrograde Saturn in Capricorn which rules reality, boundaries, restrictions, discipline and discrimination.  We could be tempted to be extra hard on ourselves or negative during this Full Moon as we look for our flaws or reasons to doubt or mistrust but a better use of this energy would be to look to establishing healthy nurturing boundaries or limits and taking realistic steps for self care.  If we have been neglecting emotions up to this Full Moon they may arise full force from within for our attention as issues from the past (also ruled by Saturn) come to a head or repeat for attention.

At its highest level Saturn concerns the ability to stand alone when we need to but it can also mean we are extra hard on ourselves not looking deeper to the emotional realm which Cancer and the Moon rule.  The Moon is feminine and rules our inner child.. we need a good working relationship with this part of ourselves but also the loving parental boundaries for self love and self care a healthy realism, knowing that not all our needs can be met by others.  We may get insights soon as Mars moves backward how needs desires or emotions were blocked frustrated or displaced.  There may be a need to come to grips with a more effective assertive or anger style as frustration builds over the next two Moon cycles as Mars stays retrograde for 2 months.

How we nurture care for and love ourselves and others will be up for review and how and when boundaries become walls or defences.  Cancer and the Moon rule emotional need and hunger so food addictions may becone more apparent.  This is a time to go gently on ourselves but also to exercise the loving self discipline of Full Moon conjunct Saturn in Capricorn rather than self criticism or self abnegation.

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
