Journey with Cancer

I love the information here about Cancer and the gifts this sign offers. It represents the position in the Medicine Wheel of the 4th house as well. We can integrate the two in a very powerful imagery!

“The water signs, Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio are all feminine/yin (with Scorpio being the power sign-fixed of the three). Cancer is the personal water sign; Pisces the more universal, compassionate water sign. Cancer is the sign of the Mother, the breasts, the stomach, the home, family; her cry is ‘I feel’. Cancer can feel into another person, know how it feels to be them, and so can be highly empathetic and even psychic. Cancer rules the 4th house in the zodiac, the one that sits at the bottom of the chart, and along with home and family, it rules our roots, our tribe and our ancestors. Our home is the seat of our private life, and the Moon ruler says this is where our security needs are met. Cancer is receptive, fertile, empathetic, nurturing and protective, as well as patient and supportive. Like summer, the season Cancer initiates, her direction is the South – the outer feminine that creates a basket, a home where love and connection can abide and life can be seeded, nurtured and carried forward to insure the generations.” Excerpt from Patricia Lilies

Journey with Pisces

The Spirit Keeper of the North is Waboose. “The Spirit path of the North is the gift of healing our physical being and our way of relating to the world. This is the healing that allows us to let go of disease and accept health.”

There are 3 Spirit Mineral Paths in each quadrant of the wheel. First is Capricorn, which is Sodalite. Second is Peridot, used for Aquarius; “brings the qualities of freshness, rebirth, beauty, lightness, balance, tranquility and fearlessness. ~ Peridot is best used by people who have gone through a cleansing or who have clarity.” Working with sodalite first is suggested, “for without cleansing, a renewal is unlikely. The third stone for Pisces, is the Herkimer Crystal; for “kindness, gentleness, clarity and wisdom”.

This completes the quadrant for the NORTH …

Dec. 22 – Jan. 19 (Snow Goose) Earth Renewal Moon ~ Cleansing (Outer North)

Jan. 20 – Feb. 18 (Otter) Rest & Cleansing Moon ~ Renewal (Middle North)

Feb. 19 – Mar. 20 (Cougar) Big Winds Moon  ~ Purity (Inner North)

In the astrological Medicine Wheel the Animal Guide for Pisces corresponds to the Sun sign for this month~ Cougar

Cougar people are patient and watchful. The females are the hunters and aggressors, while the males need coaxing and reassurance. They love lying in the sun.

Waboose, Spirit Keeper of the North, the White Buffalo, represents ancient wisdom and loves tradition.

Their Plant is the Plantain. Its tea is used to relieve lung problems and to neutralize poison and stomach acids.

Their Stone is Turquoise. It has been shown to be helpful for protection, self-confidence and to communicate visions and dreams.

Challenge: Overcoming complacency, letting go of their fantasy world and learning to participate with others.

Gift: Listening to one’s inner “knowing” and trusting one’s intuition. Resolving duality.

Their compliment is Virgo … Brown Bear. The reflection/mirror of “what is  life’s purpose?” and “how are you being of service?” Opposites of complacency (doing nothing) and finding ways to be healthy in body, mind and Spirit. Using their discernment while at the same time seeking balance is the opportunity.

Astro Update: 2016 is an excellent year to continue new health regimes, as Jupiter (a 12 year cycle) is in Virgo until July 2016. It assists  in seeing all the obstacles that keeps us from fulfilling our highest potential and also the possibilities to achieve that potential or dream. Bear is coming out of hibernation, we’ve been doing our clearing and when Spring arrives we can be ready!

Neptune & Chiron have been transiting together for some time now, both in Pisces, the dreamer, seer, healer and visionary.  This can be a time of confusion or incredible insight, as Jupiter is a helper and in Virgo will show us the details … we just need to be open and trust in the Divine Spirit. That’s the big jump … “We can do it now, or do it later. That is the choice.”*

As an astrologer I find it helpful to see what “house” these energies are in so they may be seen close up and personal! We have to acknowledge “it” to clear “it” ~ sometimes a mirror helps.

Water signs are from the Frog Clan, they feel emotions very deeply and are often quite psychic and intuitive! They often “take on” others feelings through empathy and may get overwhelmed or “damned up”. Water helps them to release!

 

Frog is especially connected to the Grandmother Moon and loves being close to water, which can be reflective as well as cleansing and refreshing. Full Moons are especially powerful times to get a picture of your dreams and visions … will they stay illusions, or become part of your reality?

To go deeper into the “dream” you must get Sun Bear, Wabun Wind and Crysalis Mulligan’s book: “Dancing With The Wheel”  It is incredible to journey with such passion and clarity about this sacred path.
