Ideal Planetary Hour for Cancer magick — Moon
I hope you are keeping up with your holiday "to-do" list. I know I've been going non-stop. Just when I think I've made some progress something else always shouts at me.
"Hey, over here! I need cleaning, mending, baking, etc., etc., etc.!"
I don't know about you, but sometimes this makes me feel a little short on patience. All I want to do is remove myself and go sit under a tree for awhile. Well, why not? Maybe it wouldn't be so bad to sit there for a little while in order to take a break, ground and center when feeling stressed, but have you ever got yourself into the attitude pictured above?
I can almost hear this character talking to himself, "I've had it! I am up to my eyeballs with working, emotional, crap, needy people. I feel like I'm not getting anywhere..."
His/her inner dialog is so self-absorbing that someone could quietly sneak in and sit behind him /her and he/she wouldn't even realize anyone was there. Or maybe his/her friend/spouse/colleague is trying to get through to offer help or good advice.
"Hello!? What can I do for you???"
How many times do we miss opportunities that could change our lives for the better just because we're so stubbornly self-absorbed we can't pick up on the good vibes of an offer?
I suggest that we take some cleansing breaths and focus on the Moon in Cancer, so we can connect to that compassion. Instead of stewing, let's try to get our family members and any other helpers we can find to pitch in and get things done as a team. Share those feelings, conjure up some enthusiasm. I know you can create such an attractive environment that opportunities will just jump out for you! Remember, too, that you'll catch more flies with honey (Cookies anyone? - I'll bake, you decorate and everyone gets some when we're done)?!
Oh, don't forget to look over your shoulder if you need some tarot advice, because I be there! Remember, your first reading is free and it could be just what you need to help you banish those 'beasties' and move forward.
