Happy Full Moon

Greetings,

Today is the day of the Full Moon. To the purists in the audience, the Sun is in Cancer, and the Moon is in Capricorn, which is what makes it a full moon. When the full moon is listed, it is listed as belonging to the sun sign. This is a particularly powerful full moon, as there are many esoteric astrology connotations present. The first one has to do with the sign Cancer. In esoteric and spiritual astrology, the sign of Cancer is associated with the masses of humanity. These are the people that are spiritually asleep, and are, on some level, okay with it. It is a known fact that most people operate from the perspective of their emotional and personality selves. Cancer is associated with a strong intuition, but also strong emotions. This became apparent to me during the events of September 11, 2001, when the media announced that the only two stocks that went up on the stock market were Anheuser Busch and RJ Reynolds. So to put it plainly, beer and cigarettes. After the events of that tragic day, people drank alcohol and smoked cigarettes while they listened to the information coming to light.

The sign of Capricorn, on the other side, is its opposite sign. Capricorn is associated with responsibility, maturity, autonomy, going your own way even if this leads one away from the crowd. It is associated with being down to earth and practical, forward thinking and progressive in thought. Some perceive Capricorns as being too emotionally cold, while Cancer can be perceived as being too emotional.

This leads us to consider a spiritual situation not commonly talked about, and that is the difference between spiritual fantasy, and spiritual reality. Spiritual fantasy can be characterized as sitting around, praying for things to get better, while not taking any proactive steps to change what is happening in one’s life. Spiritual reality, on the other hand, is associated with proverbially getting hands dirty, and working on changing things that lead to dis-ease and dis-comfort. In other words, spiritual fantasy is wishful thinking, and spiritual reality takes courage, as sometimes it takes that courage to enact change in one’s life.

So to wrap this brief but, in my opinion, potent blog up, I leave you with a rhetorical question: Are you living in spiritual fantasy, waiting for things to happen? Or are you living in spiritual reality, MAKING things happen?

To quote Yoda: “Do, or do not. There is no try.”

Blessings,

    Hey, very interesting post – Since I was diagnosed, I’ve worked very hard to learn everything I can about how to take better care of myself. I’m not perfect, but I’ve changed several things in my life for the better in the hope that my actions will shift the terrain of my body such that cancer no longer thrives in its midst. Strangely, I also found that sometimes people react defensively to your actions – when you’re living in spiritual reality. Truly fascinating to watch I must say. Anyway, thanks for the post!

    You are so right on regarding the fantasy and reality. Waiting for things to happen without a little push on your part and you will be waiting a loooong time!!
