So shine those who realise the Self,
Attain life’s goal, and pass beyond all sorrow.
In the supreme climax of samadhi
They realise the presence of the Lord
Within their heart.
Freed from impurities,
They pass forever beyond birth and death.
The Lord dwells in the womb of the cosmos,
The creator who is in all creatures.
He is that which is born and to be born;
His face is everywhere.”
– The Shvetashvatara Upanishad 11.14-16
LESSONS FROM THESE CANCER TRANSITS
Do not limit Mercury retrograde to the mundane level
We so often get caught up in negative thinking around Mercury retrograde and believe that it is limited to expressing itself as our computer crashing or documents getting lost in the post. Open up your awareness to the spiritual lessons of Mercury retrograde, when communing with the Solar life-force energy and bridging our earthly and spiritual aspirations becomes possible as this planet moves between planet Earth and the Sun.
Work on your Heart Chakra
Cancer is the 4th sign of the Zodiac and our heart-centre. With so much energy from the planets currently focusing here, we can work on embodying emotions of compassion, love, forgiveness and appreciation and releasing pent-up frustrations, injustices and anger. You might like to try mediations taught by the Heart Math Institute and as mentioned in the article, utilise the beautiful practice of Ho’oponopono, which roughly translates as “to make right”, which can include reciting “I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.”
Focus your energy within
Cancer energy is deeply internal and this is not a time for scattering or trying to gain notoriety in the outside world. Remember that you are the bedrock of all your interactions and God is the nourishing centre – if we want to make positive changes in society, we must first start with ourselves. Honour your being and go within to commune with Source energy, trusting that benevolence to manifest within you the qualities of gentle touch, conscious action and kind words.
Feel the heat and let it burn
With Mars and Sun bringing the waters of Cancer to the boil, let your old, stagnant and toxic emotions burn away to distil the pure essence of love. Feel everything and be open to transformation as you release and forgive. Instead of being heartbroken, let your heart be opened and a receptive vessel to be filled with the compassion, healing and grace of the Cosmic Mother.
