Astrology Article: Harmonizing Energy and Overcoming Scatteredness
The New Moon right after the summer solstice, which occurred on June 21, represents an important milestone Lunar cycle, it important to understand the New Moon astrology theme. It’s through this The New Moon because it helps initiate the coming season of summer. Through the theme of this New Moon you can get a glimpse of the active energies you’ll be able to use throughout the summer months. The New Moon in Cancer provides a unique type of harmonizing focus each person can access. These focusing energies are easily concentrated, like a magnifying lens, in order to expand the experience. It is this paradox of harmonizing the normally opposing concentrating and expanding energies which makes Cancer one of the more mystical zodiac signs. We are all multi-dimensional beings. The mystical energies released at the New Moon are supporting a deep, perhaps unconscious, sense of expansion into a new awareness of your multi-dimensional connections. This happens through cooperation between more than one level of existence. One way to speak of your multi-dimensional experiences is through your connection to your larger (“higher”) Self. The Cancer New Moon is supporting easier than usual access as you attempt to make new connections with your higher-self. In the coming lunar month an attempt to nurture a more conscious connection to your higher self will be rewarded by feelings of rebirth. By nurturing your dedication to new forms of life emerging within, you’ll experience a type of a beneficial symbiotic relationship between these higher levels or frequencies of your own Inner Being.
The active patterns involve a partial kite and a partial grand cross. They’re considered partial because only some, not all, of their elements are present. This indicates a need to integrate disparate energies. You may experience this as feeling scattered. This feeling of being scattered is also evident with the positions of both Venus and Mercury located in Gemini. (Venus and Mercury are also balsamic in aspect to the Sun. The balsamic phase with the Sun results in the letting go of everything which isn’t needed to build the future.) The key point to consider this month is that the Cancer New Moon energy wants to harmonize this quality of scatteredness. Remember that Cancer has a unique ability to integrate, or harmonize, by expanding and concentrating at the same time. The challenge in the current pattern is to develop a new capacity to function in practical ways at more than one level or dimension of experience. The solution to this challenge is seen in the three-point sextile/trine involving Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto. Together in this configuration these three planets represents the higher-self’s attempt to bring a new awareness of stability (Moon), and expansion of identity (Jupiter in Cancer), into your life by transcending (Neptune) the feeling of being pulled in too many directions (Venus and Mercury in Gemini). In conclusion, it is beneficial to work with issues which rise from the paradox principle of contracting for the purpose of expanding. Doing New Moon work around this paradox encourages connections with your highest-self. Living with awareness while working in the mundane (physical) world brings out the multi-dimensional capability within each of us. In turn, this quality of focus expands your ability to connect at many levels.
The New Moon is providing a new ability this month to focus and function at more than one level of awareness through the help of the higher-self. This is happening in part through a unique combination of Cancer and Gemini energies which need to be harmonized in order to overcome feelings of scatteredness. If you experience circumstances of scatteredness, being your focus to your connections with your higher-self and feel yourself emerging into a new relationship that transcends the scatteredness. In this way, the New Moon is supporting your experience of being a multi-dimensional being within the Universe. It is my deepest privilege to share these thoughts with you. Have a wonderful month, Steven
