Finding the Divine Ma within
All the above images reflect ways that are 'mothering'.... and how we can feed ourselves- and how when we are 'being mother' we give without thought. Its as natural as breathing: However people have lung issues.
THE MOON RULES THE MOOD. And the moon changes signs often. Every couple of days. Some days the sign the moon is in fits with our chart smoothly. Sometimes it doesn't. When the latter happens we can feel a bit on edge, or just out of sorts. Of course astrology isn't quite so simple; many other factors have to be considered. Such as the moon's ruler- (the planet that rules the 'sign' the moon is in). Astrology is filled with a ton of such considerations. THIS is why 'reading' the birth chart (or any chart- cities have them, there are charts for 'events' etc) is such a complex thing. Everything modifies everything. Or another way of putting it~ the day could be clear, but if your lens have a film over them- you are going to see the view of blur. Same with our moods. So lets talk about the MOON. And its role in the chart. Because June is a month that you will want to REALLY have control over your thoughts/mood/ and how you respond to events. Its also the Month of the Summer Solstice- when the Sun enters into the sign of Cancer. Our new moon in cancer is close to the solstice as well- so its really a month of FEELING your way through the waves that will come via outer events promised as the cosmic cross gets activated.
Each month we have new and full moons. We can clock them around the wheel and clearly see what areas need are attention as per the houses they fall in. (EACH HOUSE RULES AN AREA IN OUR LIFE). As we watch the day to day moon's movement we can get a grasp what might be the 'astrology weather'........and lets take it even further....
WHERE (house) and WHAT (sign) your own moon's placement is tells us HOW you give, and what you need to "FEEL" like you are being "fed." How you tend to show your "mothering" nature. The moon rules the "mother". And everyone at one point in life needs to learn how to feed themselves- how to re-charge your batteries. How to mother your very own self. If you are always looking outside of yourself to get your emotional needs met, chances are, you will be sorely disappointed. People can't always "be there" for you. Learning what you need and how to give it to yourself is to become an emotionally mature person.
But as we will discover in life- not everyone wants to grown up.
The moon is also key to what we really really really can't live without. So understanding our own moon, and the moon of our loved ones helps us to use our energy in a better, more loving way. The moon is key to UNDERSTANDING. Its also governs habits. It rules over what we 'need' to feel as though we are in tune and living life fully. When its needs and expressions are ignored other problems can begin to develop to fulfilling our life's purpose.
So, lets take a ride down the road of the moon in each sign. What it needs and how it gives the mothering vibration.
Aries- the moon here isn't prone to 'waiting' for you to figure out what she needs- she just yells it out! Opera lungs. Whatever they want they wanted it yesterday, so could you put a snap into it? And when you 'give' make sure its NEW and pioneering- put them "FIRST" more times than not and they will be very happy indeed! They also need to learn to put others first in life. That's their lesson- to give what they want. The placement of Mars in the chart will add an extra layer of complexity to this placement.
Taurus- comfort zones. LOTS of comfort zones. MAKE THEM Feel LOVED- they seek to do things with EASE. They want love to be 'easy'. Flow. They need to be surrounded by beauty. Often they create in a major way. The artistic nature is strong. All the things that bring 'pleasure' will be high on the list. Silky cloths,aromas that invite the lungs to breath deep, food that looks as good as it taste.... oh, and did i mention CHOCOLATE? Look to Venus to get extra information on how your Taurus moon blooms like a flower when feeling loved.
Gemini- Data lover. The more information to 'compare' with the better. Don't just offer one item on the intellectual plate. They need to 'know'.......books, books, and more books- depending on the placement of mercury in the chart- that will tell what the favorite subject matter is. Poetry. Words of love. They need to 'hear' it. Short courses that can just start a new project idea. Give them a subscription to any informational source and you'll get a smile. LISTEN to them.......(allow them to chatter on). These moon babies need to move the mouth. Kisses abound.
Cancer- FOOD. Water. Emotional movies that offer the chance to unload the extra emotional energy in the comfort of a dark theatre........tears will roll and they will feel oh, so much better! Cancer absorbs others emotions easily, they are 'sensitive'. so be sensitive to their EVER CHANGING MOODS....and you'll win their confidence. FAMILY is a very important part of the secure feeling for them. Be close. The more secure they feel, the more they will let you in their inner shell. And oh, don't go about things TOO directly- ever watch a crab walk? (sideways). This is the natural placement of the moon. You get double energy of MA.
Leo- Forever needs to SHINE. Like a child, no matter what the age. Simply must feel they are VIP. Leo is fire sign and so they like Aries want it in high speed. But it must be 'quality'.... this is King and Queen placement. Treat them like they rule no matter what (a bowing down does wonders) and they will stand tall and rule well. Whatever there Sun sign is will give extra clues into what makes them open up.
Virgo- Earth Virgo needs real. Real love. Real deals. Don't mess with their lists. Or their mess if they haven't yet owned the way that people but things in boxes and drawers. They can tell you EXACTLY where that item is- even if it looks like a tornado just hit the room. The same is with feelings. They KNOW how they feel via the thinking brain. USEFUL items only please. Help them to accept the imperfections in life. They want you to improve and they want to improve.........everything. Details DO MATTER. Where's mercury in the chart? Extra credit for extra effort. These moons can be really hard on themselves if they don't think they 'add up' or 'match up' to the status bar.
Libra- Just hang out. Make them feel smarter. Its important to give them mind challenges that are light and breezy. They want to "BE WITH SOMEONE" more than any other sign. They simply do not feel 'whole' without someone to have as a mirror. Prone to do the "mirror, mirror on the wall" stuff. Yes, they know they are lovely, but are they AS LOVELY, etc.... its a mental moon placement and they really do weigh the scales of comparison. Gentle souls unless badly aspected. Seeking only the easy path- at the expense of their own growth can be an issue.
Scorpio- DEEP. Everything is done with super deep thought and meaning. No shades of grey here. So give them your soul. Because that's what they want and give- SOULFULNESS. If you betray their secrets (and if they tell them to you- you must of passed some big tests) then you best get the heck out of Dodge. No one goes five hundred percent for you like this sign. They will give you their very blood. BUT........if you don't understand the word- LOYAL....then you will never be able to comfort them. Scorpio moon needs to go to the bottom of the ocean with the feelings. And when they "feel" they take on it all. Not a fake cell in the body. They delight in mysteries. Look to Mars and PLUTO for where the depths can go. They never forget a kindness and will be standing their for you when every other spineless soul departs.
Sagittarius- SPACE. They need space. Freedom. Travel. And whatever you do make it big. No, bigger. Sag seeks wisdom (which is what you DO with knowledge). They like adventures. Make it spicy in the kitchen. Don't fence them in. Hang out in the woods, or international cafe with them. Pretend you are from a different planet and put on an accent to help them out of their sometimes funk. Look to Jupiter to get an idea of just what they want in mass amounts. This is another one of the 'forever seeking more' signs. No matter what's in front of them - the grass is always greener in GREENLAND.
Capricorn- Help them rise to whatever position they are seeking. Compliment them on their work ethic;unless they are the rare lazy type- (then they know they are being lazy, and will see right through your misplaced praise). Hug them. This placement came out of the womb as an elder and slowly through life becomes a laughing child. It takes lots of hard lessons early on in life. They are serious and aren't too keen to being made fun of. Super aware of authentic giving. Not much gets past this guard. They love the old stuff. Saturn will show you how old- (OLD- or CENTURIES OLD).
Aquarius- Keep it light. bright. Colorful. Inventive. Outer space. Wacky fun keeps them interested and engaged. They need to be allowed to be off center and loved for it. But most of all- BE LIKE A FRIEND. A real friend! Pal around with them. Don't get to heavy with the emotions. They just can't relate. Remember the Jetsons? That's where they are at and what they need.....electric energy to move about. Uranus shows where they want to zip and zap.
Pisces- With feeling- they need it WITH FEELING. These moon babies are walking antennas. Softies. They want it pure. They want what you have to give to be otherworldly. Music, dance, movies. Recite a love poem to them when they are blue........wallow with them in the pond. Lift them out of it with crystals and magic food........tell them your dreams - and listen to theirs. Save a stray anything with them! They collect broken hearts and mend them. Makes them feel worthwhile, and they can relate as they are soooooo sensitive!
OK! So now you've got some key ideas of how to give/get for June. What you also need to know is that- Mercury is stationing retrograde on June 7th. Redo your home, the food diet, and clean out those closets! It will be retrograde until July 1st.
Mars will trigger the Cosmic Cross - the week of June 13th- 27th. Read my Mars blog on the kitchen sari "planets in action" page for more details about that. May 19th update.
The Solstice is exact on 3:51am pdt on the 21st. Followed by a new moon in Cancer at 6 degrees on the 27th......
This week- June 5th we have a quarter moon in Virgo sq Gemini sun....when is too much information too much? key word for this quarter moon is - ADJUSTMENT. Get out your work bench and re-work a relationship, project, and or old habit.
I've focused on the moon in this blog - namely because CANCER energy is abound this month. Its the last six weeks of Jupiter being in cancer. The solstice is this month. Mercury turns retrograde in cancer. The PAST will pop up and you need to be aware that how you react will determine the flow or lack of. Moon always deals with how we 'respond'. Being more aware of your emotional nature will help you when emotions that you thought were long buried show themselves.
Cancer energy also deals with family. Its also the Sun sign of America. In America we are on the cusp of a big chance to CHANGE OUR PATTERNS in how we react to the rest of the world. This is true in our small little families as well as the global family.
The cosmic cardinal cross that was exact in April is an ongoing, unfolding of potential maturity. Going from teenager to adult. In a spiritual sense.
IT is only when we get in touch with our own inner "DIVINE MA" that we are able to act more loving to each other and TO OUR VERY SELF.
So, explore what it is that you need to feel whole. Make sure its looking within and discovering it in the inner world. Give it to yourself. Be it time, forgiveness, extra sleep in, etc.
And then as you understand that what you seek is inside then you can share more and more love in the little ways in life- that glue us all as one. Give your smile, give your time, let the person on the freeway in, don't honk, sing "DIVINE BLESS YOU", each and every time you are more honest with yourself in how you discover the mother within you become Gaia.
IF we all activate the divine ma, more and more the world will become a mirror of that- which we truly are - creation itself.
