As it is now in the Cosmic Sky, la Luna (in Cancer) stands opposite the Sun (in Capricorn).
It could be imagined as a dance between the Masculine and Feminine seen in the highest expression. The Divine Father (Capricorn) and the Sacred Mother (Cancer) are held in space and supported by the gravitational pull of balance between the opposites. Here it is all about the archetypes of the Provider, the Nurturer, the Leader, the Wise Guide – Crone or Wizard Sage, the Divine Parent.
Cancer and Capricorn’s axis teaches us that matters of the Heart are hard work and can be incredibly rewarding and/or devastating to our sensitivities! It takes strength, devotion, loyalty, commitment, and an immense amount of courage to love and be loved, live with an open heart, and allow oneself to be seen and touched by love, by another, and essentially by oneself. Here it is all about the depths of feeling and letting the waves of vulnerability carry you home into the heart.
To be a Leader in life by being led by the Heart ~ this is the balance of Cancer and Capricorn. And to be bonded and committed (to whatever it is that you choose) is the lifeblood that gives us meaning throughout our lives.
We all come from out of a Spiritual Family Tree – of one kind or another. Whether it be bloodlines or Soul Family, we are joined together by karmic ties and heartstrings. We are reflecting, mirroring, guiding, creating obstacles and challenges for one another as we each traverse the territories of ourselves in the maze of each other.
The past, the present, the future ~ a beautiful marriage of Unity forever linked in Harmony.
Cancer say’s “This is what I need to feel secure, safe, comfortable. “This is what makes me vulnerable.” “These are my needs.” “These are my fears.”
Cancer say’s “I feel your pain. Come, let me embrace it. Let me hold you in the warm hearth of my nurturing presence, and we can feel the love that is near.”
We are bonded and bound to our pain, to each other, to our patterns, to our hopes and dreams. Strands as powerful as the umbilical cord feeding us with life, and as determined as friendship knots binding us to vows we’ve said in gest or perhaps in desperation or even in pure love.
Our foundations vary, our shoulders to lean on come and go, and we learn to adjust to the winds of change and make way for the promise given each new day of hope, and more time to live it all out, to right our wrongs, and to leave something of value behind.
We plant seeds and grow into ourselves by and through each other. Strengthened by the nurturing or weakened by neglect or lack of light, we become who we are. Struggles and birth pains worn like a wound on our Nature and, if we are lucky, like a source of strength in our Spirit. Being Alive is Warriors Work.
We are all here fighting the good fight. In faith that we shall be redeemed for our efforts and forgiven for our faults as we stay steadfast on the path. Hopeful to be blessed with an opportunity to be witnessed, appreciated, held, and shared in the experience of who we are and all that we have to give. How beautiful it is to lay down our swords for a moment and stake a peace flag in the internal battles and rest in the reprieve of being loved.
Life gets lonely. One thing for sure that we can count on is the light of love, that no matter what, no matter where, eternally shines like a beacon in each of our hearts, like an old friend always there to connect with us.
No man is an island, and I am nothing without you.
