Returning to The Sanctuary Within

Last full moon of 2018 (in the sign of cancer)

Returning to The Sanctuary Within 

 

During this Winter Solstice Full Moon we are in Cancer opposing Capricorn at zero degrees, this is a powerful beginning point signifying a need for emotional strength. Think back to the new moon we experienced earlier this month, what did you become clear on? This is likely where you will feel a strong desire to begin a new. This axis is asking us to balance our lives between the internal...our sanctuary, where we feel safe and retreat to, vs our external world, how we present to the outer world.. our goals in this area. This energy speaks to the need to nurture ourselves, to be grounded in our outer world but to not forget our heart and what provides a deeper sense of meaning to us. Cancer represents our family of origin, our childhood and fond memories of the past. This is a call to return to what home represents to you. You could experience profound revelations of the heart and feel a need to return to something that will bring back a sense of emotional fulfillment in your day to day life.This is an initiation into the next season of your life(the next few years to be specific)what do you want that to look like? The answer lives inside of you. Seek purpose. Seek love. Seek authenticity.
