Ancestors and the thinning of the veil

Painting by Jether Gunberg

The Moon is in Cancer the sign most often associated with family, our roots and where we come from. Today also marks the halfway point between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice when the veil between the world of the living and the world of the dead grows thin, giving us the opportunity to commune and honour our ancestors.

DARK MOON IN CANCER

Get back to the roots of your motivation. What is it that you want? Go to the basement (Moon opposing Pluto) and clear the space, organize (Sun in Virgo) your thoughts. Get clear about your feelings. Sort it out.
If your basement is flooded, start the process of cleaning it up. Find practical solutions. But most importantly rest, regenerate and don’t over-schedule.
We are a few days before a Solar Eclipse/New Moon at 20º Virgo on September 12/13. Which will be a great reset button for intentions around healing, health and new fitness regime.

Until then purify, detoxify, nurture your body and lay low.

Work & Play

There is progress happening but it might appear to be going ever sooooo slowly. This is Taurus season folks: slowly but surely, one brick at a time with unexpected extra work and more being added on that to do list making it harder to remain in your flow.

The Moon is in Cancer today. It’s a great time to take care of yourself and the ones you love appreciating what’s going right in your life. Acknowledge the support that you do have from your clan, and from the people that loves you.

Finding a little corner of peace within your home or a place where you feel safe to recharge your batteries or cooking something that your mother use to make when you were a child could bring some needed comfort and joy.

Decay and Pluto

The Moon in Cancer is applying to oppose Pluto in Capricorn in a few hours…

Pluto is associated with the process of decay, destruction, transformation and rebirth. Issues of power and the abuse of power are parts of Pluto’s domain.

His influence is on the collective.

I’m going to skip the astrological lingo for today and focus on the bigger picture.

Here is the thing:

We are killing everything. The earth that sustains us and all the living creatures on it. Everything is dying, the ocean’s are poisoned, our food has become toxic, we brutalise living creatures for mass consumption and the worst part is that we know all of this. (But bacon is sooo good right?)

We are witnessing the downfall and the disintegration of our modern world.

The people that make important decisions for us collectively are corrupt and power hungry. We have lost faith, and most of us don’t trust that our governements have our best interests in mind. Everyday we loose our freedom. The more we disconnect from the natural world, the more we become dependant on the unsustainable machine that runs on credit and oil.

We are searching for simplicity, validation and connection in a complex virtual reality while dissociating ourselves from the natural world. We convince ourselves that we are centered and wholesome because at the end of the day, we buy organic and meditate or post a spiritually enlightened quote on facebook, twitter, instagram and the likes. It helps us cope. Good job!

We spend a week in nature ”disconnecting” which gives us the impression that it is everyone else who has blinders on, not us.

But we are all very sick. And in order to see the changes that we want to see, we will need to go into the darkest corners of ourselves and face the reality:

We are the corrupted, we are the power hungry, we are the abusers, we are the destroyers.Ia4zTw21
