I received this in an email today from my teacher and friend, Geordie Numata of Deer Spirit Reiki.
The Sun/Moon/Eclipse conjunction falls in 19 deg. Cancer. The Sabian Symbol for this degree is “Venetian Gondoliers Giving A Serenade”, which evokes a very pleasant image of gondoliers ferrying delighted passengers through the canals of Venice while singing romantic ballads. We can forget about any primitive superstitions we may harbor about eclipses being a bad omen today. With the Sun/Moon conjunct the S. Node, Pluto conj. the N. Node and Mars in Virgo closely sextile the S, Node and Part Of Fortune, we can joyfully release old fear based imprints from the past and claim our powers of healing, nurturing, transformation and manifestation as we effortlessly float through the canals of life. Its summertime and the Grand Cardinal Cross has separated enough for us to take deep breath and take a little time out to relax, enjoy and give ourselves and our loved ones some extra loving strokes. Chiron & Neptune are opposing Venus in Virgo and the fiery conjunction of Uranus and Jupiter in Aries is quincunxing Venus and resting at one end of the T – square with Pluto and Saturn. This powerful configuration is pushing us to apply impeccable discernment and values as we expand into new frontiers of self realization. We need to be forgiving, gentle and patient and with ourselves and others now, like a wise old grandma. Do not jump to conclusions and lapse into self – righteous criticism! Easy does it! Take a day off to go to the beach or out into the woods. To hell with email, facebook, TV, text messaging and the frantic pace and sweltering heat of life in the Big Apple dog days! We don’t have to become rich, famous and totally spiritually awakened all in one business day! REALLY!!
Here are some affirmations to inspire you as you set your New Moon intentions –
I walk through my world in a state of fearless and fluid grace.
All my thoughts, intentions and actions are aligned with the greater good of all.
I gratefully allow myself to feel all my emotions.
I love myself and others unconditionally.
I am gentle and nurturing with my self and others.
I honor the free will choices of others while maintaining healthy and loving personal boundaries.
I claim my personal co-creative power and work in harmony and equanimity with others.
ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL – UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL!
