Cancer Full Moon’s Invitation to Emotional Wholeness & an End to Suffering
With Cancer Full Moon energies abound, the thing that stands out most to me is a focus on the emotions and emotional field and the very subtle and loud messages that have been trying to get our attention here. There’s this huge potential for immense opportunity or major challenge that can manifest as a critical point – in either case a turning of the tides is at hand by vulnerably and transparently embracing the flow of your watery depths and being honest with where your resistance, denial, repression, defiance, defense, and refusal is so that you can make those breakthroughs.
This calls to mind something I recently read that feels in alignment with this and important to share.
It speaks to “suffering” and the language and dialogue, not to mention beliefs, we use daily to keep us small, victimized, martyred, sabotaged, excused from responsibility, and/or in a continuous spiral of confusion and hopelessness…..It’s about how suffering can be another mask we wear that taints our entire life.
Here is the message:
“Emotional suffering is a big disguiser, a mask. Suffering can be kind of arrogant belligerence with which you agonize through life. Take off that mask, and the person has lost her main occupation. So no matter what she accomplishes, she will be wearing that false face. She will simply give it another name.” ~Star Woman
In what ways do you claim suffering as your role in life?
Perhaps there is a new perspective in which you can approach your life experiences and arise.
In any case, your emotional responses and feelings – your mental reactions and portrayals of your emotions – can provide you answers and be the key to unlocking your freedom.
The way through them IS to go through them with personal integrity, which may sometimes include inviting in and being willing to receive support and reflections from others.
The challenge takes place when we stop short, attach to a particular emotion, and decide to set up camp there and grow roots.
With this Cancer Full Moon, let us embrace the gifts of the feminine and bring her into her authentic power.
