Remember the growing pains for the New Moon in Cancer? Well now we are really feeling the pull between Cancer and Capricorn. The Moon joins Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd house for the Full Moon. The mother is examining and demanding that her needs be met with precision and accuracy. This is not a time for cutting corners or compromising but it is a time to let go of the need for control.
Cancer influences the energy of the Sun, Venus, and the North Node our personalities, relationships, and lessons for this life are impacted by a drive for emotional connection, creation, and psychological authenticity. This is coupled with a retrograde Mercury and Mars in Leo which puts our courage to the test. The new moon brought us face to face with our feelings now we integrate our mind/heart connection. We accomplish this through the healing principle between Cancer and Capricorn found in Neptune in Pisces.
Neptune in Pisces, in relation to Cancer and Capricorn, is where we find the trinity of father, mother, and child. The elements of protection, security, and structure coupled with nurturing, feeling, and foundation provide a space of creation, possibility, and magic. A funnel from our conscious reality to the subconscious and the infinite. This is experienced through joy. Finding the little things that make us laugh, that pull us back from the edge. It is the light that balances the darkness. We take ourselves so seriously sometimes. Dionysus understood that to move us out of the space of reaction to inspiration we have to be open and willing. To lower our walls that we put up to keep us safe from what we cannot understand. To move forward, past the usual, beyond, “how we’ve always done things”, we have to enter into this space of the unknown.
The Neptunian realm where there is no separation of heart and mind only possibilities. Whether you connect to Piscean energy through Christ, Yemaya, Dionysus, Mami Wata, or Atlantis embody the spirit of love, compassion, and rebellion. Step outside of the expectations of our environments and see how many new paths you can discover.
Mercury retrograde in Leo
Regularly, Mercury in Leo is magnetic, a crowd pleaser, and easily gains the attention of any audience they desire. In retrograde, the audience is distracted, the actor is distracted, unsure and unclear in their message. This highlights the tension between the heart and the mind. We want to speak and be heard but how do we express this message? Will anyone listen? Generally, this energy brings us an eager audience but now, things are not so clear. As always with retrogrades do not fight against the current. Go with the flow and know that now may not be the best time for this message to be received. It might be best to flesh out the details of your feelings, your thought process, and where you want to go from here. Get clear on your message so that when Mercury goes direct you will be ready to captivate the world with what you have to share.
