Masculine energy is assertive, insistent and pursuing. Feminine energy is conjuring, intuitive and receptive. Living in a patriarchal society such as what we see in the U.S. encourages a culture of masculine energy invoked throughout our daily lives.
That’s why this Solar Eclipse is so important. With so much heaviness in the air, the rise of the sacred feminine is in full force. This is where we nurture and nourish ourselves, providing communal support for others, remembering to practice radical grace, care and tenderness with ourselves and with each other.
So use this solar energy to recharge, my dear friend. Get rooted. Call on the Ancestors. Eat right. Rest. Drink plenty of water. Spend time by water. Cry a good cry and come back home. Come back to you. In doing so, you will revive all that is sacred and divine, more receptive to messages (and messengers) who speak a truth that transcends our current reality.
With so many planets retrograding around the Sun (including Mercury’s retrograde station in the sign of the Crab this Wednesday), a review of how best to manifest truthful insights is underway as we catch our collective breath. So be patient as this energy unfolds.
The final eclipse in Capricorn peaks on July 5th; I’ve been interpreting this as the final nail to be hammered into the coffin of patriarchy. This figurative death will come with resistance as those in power attempt to maintain control. We’re getting a preview of this now as protestors take to the streets to defund police, and there’s more to come in the fall.
Resting, then, is absolutely necessary. Only love, understanding and empathy – all things that Cancer represents – will win the fight for humanity.
