New Moon in Cancer: Love Like You’ve Never Known Before

Dear Friends,

Your birth was no accident.

We came in with a divine design that may seem at times to be mostly about the careers we have, the money we make, the art we create, the trips we take and the relationships we have—and in part, they are. Each desire planted in our hearts has been carefully chosen, so we could remember ourselves as the powerful Creators we inherently are.

Love in Action. 

Diminishing any desires we have for a relationship, career, home, kids, wealth, success—whatever the longing is—serves no one.

Love what and whom you love. With ALL YOUR HEART.

Sometimes it’s hard to believe how much chaos, struggle, loss, anxiety, abuse, fear, abandonment, rejection, humiliation, and failure we’re exposed to on the delicate path to these dreams. And even though most of the time we understand that these experiences act as catalysts of massive inner growth, does life have to be this hard so much of the time?

This New Moon in Cancer and Solar Eclipse on July 12 at 8:47 pm MST asks if you’re ready to release the long-time relationship you may have to pain and suffering as a way to learn, inviting a new way to generate wisdom and compassion from the heart and offering your learning to those who need it.

To live our greatest human potential is why we are here and because this New Moon and Solar Eclipse and the two eclipses that follow on the July 27 and August 11 are initiating all kinds of radiant possibilities and abundant timelines, you may want to ask this question and be prepared to do something about the answer:

What am I holding back that my lover, my friends, my family, my community, the world needs right now?

Your brothers and sisters on this planet need to know.

Hiding our wounding, pretending we are “fine,” ignoring the suffering in front of us no longer works. Not that it ever did. 

To help us open up and heal, the Great Mother archetype descends, baptizing our presence and our awareness with hers, holding keys in how to nurture ourselves while we offer that love to others through the many ways we do.

Who is she? 

You already know her.

She may have shown up for you as the women you call mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, teacher, coach, friend. Because archetypes transcend gender, the Great Mother may live in your dad, grandfather, uncle, brother—men and women who have the medicine of big love and compassion healing our hearts and the hearts of our global family.

Interdimensionally, the Great Mother comes in many forms. 

Pachamama, Mother Earth, Gaia, Green Tara, Sophia, Durga, White Buffalo Woman, Ceres, Mother Mary, Mother Teresa, the Cosmic Mother, Ma Kuan Yin.

When we say her mantra, move our bodies to her rhythm, invoke her in prayer, meditate on her image, read her stories and teachings, she guides us inward to the places that need to heal.

And while you may see her in the outer and know her by name, is she awake in you? 

“Why?” you may ask.

Because she is saying no more to the Hermit who retreats into his shell, turns her head, closes his eyes and covers her ears.

In surrendering our control and letting Mother Love in instead, we can come out of our shells that were created to help us survive.

With a surge of confidence knowing she has our backs, we can move in love and give from a place of abundance. We learn to receive, to apologize, to forgive, to dream, to stand, to grow, to make amends, to make love. 

The Great Mother is asking all of us to show up as HER in every home, classroom, workspace, street corner, level of government, conversation and conflict, for she is a fierce agent for love.

And in this journey, while we become living embodiments of Mother Love, we must remember our own need to hear Love’s whispers and to be held—sweetly, tenderly, lovingly. And that’s where the Great Mother reassures us: When you hold space for others to heal, I will heal you, too.

The Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers (a living embodiment of the Great Mother) has wisdom to share about these tender, tumultuous times and the Mother Love way through:

“As you move through these changing times…
be easy on yourself and be easy on one another.
You are at the beginning of something new.
You are learning a new way of being.
You will find that you are working less
in the yang modes that you are used to.

You will stop working so hard
at getting from point A to point B
the way you have in the past,
but instead, will spend more time experiencing yourself
in the whole, and your place in it.
Instead of traveling to a goal out there,
you will voyage deeper into yourself.

Your mother’s grandmother knew how to do this.
Your ancestors from long ago knew how to do this.
They knew the power of the feminine principle…
and because you carry their DNA in your body,
this wisdom and this way of being are within you.

Call on it. Call it up.
Invite your ancestors in.
As the yang based habits and the decaying institutions on
our planet begins to crumble, look up.
A breeze is stirring.
Feel the sun on your wings.”

Prepare space within and invite the Great Mother home. Write your intentions, strengthen your commitments. Feel your pain, your emotional triggers, and be FREE.

You are at the beginning of a new way of being. And it is good.

Love Jenn
