Last month was a social/spiritual smorgasbord. I danced, I cried, I breathed, and brushed shoulders with healers and seekers alike. I had my first encounter with moving meditation and learned that there is just as much information about energy and experience in movements and body parts as any divinatory tool. The line between body and energy was so blurred that at points I didn’t know whether to systematically strengthen the muscles around my scapula or design a ritual to love on my energetic arms. Or both!
As I pulsed and played, several relationships came to a close and left a gaping space. I had to decide whether to call the hole wound or heart furrow: future home of new seeds. I was invited to emotionally react and reminded of the power of perspective in challenging times.
During an emotionally trying time I am like a person in a new empty house. I know that it is time to decorate; to fill my life with nurturing experiences and self love; so that in addition to whatever emotions arise I also get to feel all the things I want to feel.

The Hermit Rx and Queen of Swords
Cancers, the masters of domestic bliss, have retreated into their solid shells. The shell is whatever prevents your light from reaching as far into the outside world as it can go. For some it’s words, secrets or doublespeak, creating a fog in communication or goal setting. For others it might be a conscious or unconscious choice, either way, the boundaries are erected. This month’s cards call to mind a carefully constructed pillow fort with a scrawled note on the door that reads “no entry without the password.” The fort might be made of doubts, perceived grievances, negative self-talk, or maybe just uncertainty about when to come out of the shell. The fort might be made of comfort, distraction, or a desire to play it safe. The thing is, you don’t owe anyone your light. No one is entitled to your succulent glow. Except for maybe you.
Are you using your gift of gab to soothe yourself? To speak your bliss into its fullest existence? Have you given yourself the keys to your own pillow fort of love and security? Or have you abandoned your own care in favor of something or someone else? It’s time to partake of your own warmth and light so that you might expand outward into a world that very much needs you.
