Monthly Love Tips
Welcome to June!
Just as we started to settle into Covid and feel an opening from quarantine, the Black Lives Matter movement took our country by storm.
It is going to be an interesting month. I always look to see what's happening in the cosmos to see how it might be effecting our energetic body. In Ayurveda, whatever happens in the macrocosm also is found in the microcosm. This month we will have a solar eclipse on June 20/21. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between earth and sun, obscuring the sun from our view on Earth. This will be a mega solar eclipse 0 degrees of Cancer New Moon. It is rare and powerful.
What is ready to blossom and grow? This cancer new moon is about compassion and opening up your heart to the depths of divine feminine energy. The divine feminine energy can allow us to find kindness, but it also allows us to flow with our emotions, access intuition, and to open our hearts to what we are willing and ready to receive.
I am currently reading the book Broken Open, and this quote seems appropriate for where we are now in our collective consciousness.
"And the time came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." - Anais Nin
Let your heart open and blossom this month, and serve you well in the new moon energy! May you be ready to find courage and compassion for yourself and for humankind during these trying times.
