The New Moon In Cancer Eclipse:

Time To Make Time For The New~

If you have been feeling challenged, cranky, exhausted lately, and perhaps now feeling somewhat like my furry Angel friend here:


….know that you are not alone. 

In many ways the universe is inviting us to open up and let go of those things that are no longer serve our best interests; not always does this seem our choice at the time. People and situations may no longer match who we are vibrationally, or that of whom we are soon becoming.

Astrologers tell us that eclipses are a natural ‘housecleaning’ phenomenon that  open a portal or space in the universe, so that we may ‘toss’ the old and by our willingness, positive belief and action, move into creating something brand new for ourselves.

For me, in the last few weeks, work hours disappeared, the power steering hoses in my car rusted out and needed to be replaced, my furry Angel Cat friend became unwell and a course I was anticipating needed to be cancelled, due to a personal crisis in the instructor’s life.

Throughout this challenging time, I was able to stay grounded and in the knowing that all would work itself out, in time.  I stayed connected to my favorite touchstone saying, offered to me by my colleague friend, Sonia:

‘I have no idea how all of this will work out. My job is to follow my spirit and God ( Source, the Universe, insert your own word here )  is looking after the HOW~~~’

Also during this time, creative new ideas and opportunities I was able to incorporate into my work opened up for me; several relationships deepened, wonderful family connections happened, supportive new  friends arrived and the miracle of ‘found money’ assisted me on my journey.

Transforming times like these remind me of one of my favourite pieces of prose, from my childhood: 


Halfway down the stairs
Is a stair
Where I sit.
There isn’t any
Other stair
Quite like
I’m not at the bottom,
I’m not at the top;
So this is the stair
Where I always

Halfway up the stairs
Isn’t up,
And isn’t down.
It isn’t in the nursery,
It isn’t in the town.
And all sort of funny thoughts
Run round my head:
“It isn’t really
It’s somewhere else

A.A Milne


Today offers a very real opening in the ethers, to pause in the ‘ SOMEWHERE ELSE INSTEAD’, to walk out of the fear and shift to one’s perception to a positive outlook. It is also a powerful time to write out a New Moon Wish list, noting those things you choose to create. The key to manifesting  is found in the intensity of feeling, the trueness of ones heart’s desire that sends the affirmation forward.

Whether through prayer, meditation, intention or dreaming this is a powerful time to send your new CREATIVE SOUL PRINT out to the universe, to be supported by all that is.

Cosmic Blessings to you all~
